    Here is something the KHSAA needs to/must address:

    If a school cannot provide adequate or has no locker room for a visiting team for a playoff game there should be a change of venue.

    I’m going to have to say no on this one. Home field advantage. Locker rooms are part of it. If you’re worried about it bring a large tent or RV.

    It should happen. For no other reason then from a safety/liability reason.

    I think last night was the first time I had to watch out for the football players walking through the parking lot after the game so I wouldn’t run over them as I was leaving. Those facilities (or lack thereof) reminded me of Lone Oak.

    Home field advantage?

    Ridiculous.

    Can you better define adequate?

    As far as walking through a parking lot goes I’ve been to a number of places where this is the case. Many schools us the gym/basketball locker room for the visitors. Gyms aren’t always right next to the field.

    Halftime is 15:00 minutes. If the “locker room” is a ten minute walk then it is not adequate. If rest room facilities are not provided that is not adequate. If the visiting team has to take halftime in the middle of the field that is not adequate.

    So you are fine with it for the regular season but it all of a sudden is a problem for a playoff game?

    We have played at Taylor twice in the past three seasons. It is a lengthy walk but I believe their team has the same walk. The lockerroom situation was good and we had access to their gym for meetings and walk thru. I have no idea what happened last night, but from previous experiences, Taylor was good to us.

    There was no place for the visiting team to go to the bathroom?

    I’ve been a number of places where it was just as easy to stay on the field. It’s not that uncommon.
