    Replay would be an option for playoffs only. I can see the KHSAA approving its use only for the state finals.

    It is my understanding that KHSAA State Championship game officials are NOT chosen based upon merit. Assuming that is true, I think using instant replay would put the KHSAA in a Catch-22 of sorts.

    To the positive, at least we would get to see replays of controversial calls because in the past we all know if an official action/non-action is controversial the KHSAA rarely, if ever, shows the replay.
