BluegrassPreps' Class 3A Rankings - Discussion (10/23)Class 3A
No team in Class 3A looks better coming down the stretch than the Boyle County Rebels. Chuck Smith's crew absolutely embarrassed Western Hills, much like they have embarrassed competition all season, and move a step closer to the top spot. Corbin didn't necessarily do anything wrong, but they did get into a somewhat unexpected dogfight with Casey County that was tied in the 4th Quarter, before the Redhounds pulled away aided by Casey County miscues. Class 3A is ending the Regular Season in style with seven of the ten teams playing ranked foes from other classes. As a result, we may see one more final shakeup before it is all said and done.
1. Belfry vs. 4A #3 Johnson Central
2. Boyle County at 4A Mercer County
3. Corbin vs. 4A #7 Knox Central
4. Elizabethtown at 2A #9 Glasgow
5. Central vs. 6A #6 Pleasure Ridge Park
6. Caldwell County vs. 2A #3 Mayfield
7. Lexington Catholic at 5A #7 Southwestern
8. Casey County at Adair County
9. Fleming County vs. 1A #2 Paintsville
10. Larue County at 1A CampbellsvilleAdvertisement
Oct 23, 17, 10:32 AM #2That's a very impressive slate of games for the final week of the season. I think only four (Boyle, Elizabethtown, Casey, and Larue) of the top ten are playing games they are sure to win.
Oct 23, 17, 12:23 PM #3Moving Boyle County to the #2 spot is the right move, IMO. They are on a collision course to meet Belfry at Kroger Field.

And yes Chuck Smith has only picked up where he left off some years ago at Boyle County. Expect the same for however long he is there to continue.

Oct 23, 17, 12:57 PM #6Didn't Lexington Catholic travel to E-town last year for the right to go to Bowling Green? Why are they hosing 2 years in a row? This cross bracketing is dis-advantage to some districts. Our district has to travel for the region championship and guess what.....we have to travel for a Regional Championship next season also. This is wrong in my book as home field is a advantage.

Oct 23, 17, 01:21 PM #9Chalk that up to old age. I see now that was in 2015. I can't even tell the years apart now. Geez I need to just retire and move to Florida full time.

Oct 23, 17, 02:33 PM #11Tilghman should be in the 9-10 range. Lost to Caldwell on a last second FG. Lost to 6A McCracken on a botched PAT. The Tornado have been playing well down the stretch.

I think Tilghman is definitely hanging around the Top 10 though.. whether in it or just outside it. I definitely agree with that.
Oct 23, 17, 02:47 PM #13Tilghman/McCracken is a rivalry game so records are thrown out there.
Based on first few weeks, I agree. But from Caldwell on, they have been playing well.
Oct 23, 17, 02:58 PM #14I get moving Boyle to #2...kinda.
So was Corbin dropping to #3 the result of undefeated Casey playing such a miserably weak schedule?
I for one have been tough on Casey, but apparently there is more to this squad then I thought. I mean Corbin has beaten some really good teams and lost to a great team. For Casey to be in the game in the 4th quarter is pretty good I think.
So if Mercer plays Boyle tough for 3 quarters would Boyle drop as well?

With that said, and if you needed to make an argument. Casey County and Western Hills were pretty equally paired teams entering last week.
One got wiped off the face of the planet, the other was right in the game until they self destructed in the 4th Quarter.
