    And again, I’m sure the same could be said for James Taylor.

    That's not what went around but we'll agree to disagree.

    Fair enough. The only opinion that matters is the one from the federal judge ruling over the case.

    That's exactly right and the season could be over when that time comes around.

    1. He’s supposed to rule next week.

    2. Zion’s year is over in late February. If Marshall County makes the region tourney he may be back in time for that.

    I’m assuming he is practicing with the team........

    The Federal judge can make his ruling that he can play. He/She can’t rule on eligibility, therefore Marshall Co will have to decide if they want to forfeit all the games he plays in.

    I’m not sure a player that has been ruled ineligible can be practicing with the team.

I think there needs to be a house cleaning and start at the top.
    The KHSAA answers to the member schools. The KHSAA rules are made by the member schools. The members agree to abide by the rules and rulings of THEIR association.

    From what I understand it is well within the rules for him to be practicing with the team.

    He is ineligible for a year. A year from the date he last played for Adair County. Once that anniversary passes he can play.

    Last year when a student athlete (football) from Somerset took on the KHSAA and got an injunction from the court and was able to play 5 games. Due to a clerical error, the injunction ran out and the student did not get to finish the year but yes, they can play under the injunction and no, the team will not forfeit any games if they play him. Just FYI, our US court system does have the final say and not the KHSAA.

    What is the alternative? Not play? How exactly do they “answer” to the member schools? I repeat they answer to no one. They make the rules and then they rule on their own rules. Lol. I agree they take input from representatives from the schools but they don’t “answer” to them.

    They can practice. They can even play in JV games.

    You (and others) need to download a copy of the KHSAA By-Laws and read them. “They” are the member schools. “They” make the rules. “They” agree to abide by the rules.

    Evidently the rule on practice was changed a couple of years ago. It is poorly worded but basically leaves practice to the discretion of the school. However it does not mention JV games.

    Both rules have recently been changed. Both can occur now. It is up to the individual school on how they handle it but they can practice and play JV.
