    Ok, I qualify my previous prediction slightly. IF (and that's a big IF) Danville decides to use both pages of their offensive playbook, they could pull this one out. Against HC, Danville ran the same doomed plays the entire game.Then, in OT they utilized the wishbone set, and had much success with it. HC was quick. And Bardstown will be quick. A little misdirection will come in handy in Friday's game.

    Danville has plenty of speed at their skill positions as well. Speed isn't the difference in these teams. It will be won up front, and by the team that makes the fewest mistakes (ie turnovers). Danville has to travel every other for the playoffs. Two years ago they traveled around 5 hours to Mayfield in the semi-finals and won. Bardstown is only about an hour away, and won't be that big of a factor.

    I think they also had to travel to Holy Cross in 2003 as well as Mayfield. They were state champs that year.

    Frankfort had a fast team....Frankfort had 7 yards.........hmmmm. This tells me speed is not a factor in this game. Track and football are different... you don't see 250-300 pound lineman trying to hit people running around a track. You don't have to worry about getting your head knocked off while running around a track....plus, strength or lack of could help you or hurt you once you put the pads on. I like to see "GAME" speed, not track speed!

    I think you've pointed out the possible difference maker in the Ads favor. You said Bardstown isn't much up front or between the tackles. Danville is.

    As I said when Frankfort touted their speed (and I'm sure Bardstown is faster) it doesn't matter if you can run 4.5 if there's a DL in your face before you can get up field. The game will be won or lost in the trenches.

    I was just answering a question. sticku asked the last time Danville had to travel in the playoffs. The answer is every other year. That's how the system works. This is our year to travel.

    Danville just needs to come out and deliver the big hit early. Bardstown has not had to fight like they are gonna have to come friday night. Danville has been down to the wire and knows how to dig down deep. If Danville tackles really well then i see the Ads rollin. Bardstown is fast, but Danville has speed too. Bardstown is little up front. They may have had 9 shutouts or something like that, but not friday. I see Danville putting up thier points. Holy Cross was only giving up like 70 yards on the ground. The Ads had about 250. They just know how to win. Tradition doesn't graduate.

    Danville may play better on the road. Sometimes going on the road gets you that much more focused

    Thanks, GoBigRed for the compliment. The Danville fans feel the same about Mayfield. You always show a lot of class. I hope both teams can take care of business Friday night so I can make the drive to Mayfield next week. Good luck.

    Two of the premier programs in the State. No prediction but would be a great match-up to watch.

    Bardstown-24
    Danville-21

    I'm pulling for the ad's but i think that Bardstown's defense will be too much for the admirals

    Danville was down at the half to Somerset 26-6 at Somerset,and came back to win that one 42-26. The ADs were down to Holy cross last week 14-0 at the half,and came back to win that one in triple OT.What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger! I know Bardstown has one heck of a team this year! Good luck to both teams! I got to go with the ADmirals...
    Danville ?
    Bardstown ?
