    Yeah, I know, but still, what ever class Lex Cath has to be in to be paired with those two would okay with me. I may have never won a state title while playing at Lex Cath but it was still enjoyable as heck going up against Boyle Co., Cov Cath, and Highlands to try and win a region title each year.

    I though under the new system, there was no "playing up".

    Wasn't Lone Oak the "smallest" 4A team in the state?

    You've exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations this year. We're still proud of you Purple Flash. Nothing to hang your heads about being 2nd place in Class 4A!!!! Thanks for the ride and great memories this season.

    Lone Oak was out of there league tonight, I do think LC should be playing in 5 or 6a though, over 100 kids dressing? Thats insane!

    I'm not even going to get sucked into the private/public debate but it is what it is. Lexington Catholic had twice the numbers and Lone Oak is a county school that hasn't, nor will they, consolidate with the other area county schools. Lone Oak would have fared just fine against Bell County. Might not have beaten them but they are still a solid third in Class 4A.

    Have you watched Bell County this year? I sure disagree with you on this. Bell would have easily handled Lone Oak and I've seen both teams play. I don't think Lone Oak could have even played with Bell, like they couldn't play with Lexington Catholic.

    Does Bell have 100+ on their roster? Do they have the athletes to cover Lone Oak's receivers like Catholic did? It really doesn't matter at this point but the Purple Flash is no lower than the third best team in Class 4A, no matter how bad they looked today. Today's game was simply won at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The Knights go two or three deep at all of those positions and Lone Oak's boys were going both ways and may have two reserves that gave the starters brief breathers.

    Both of you should just stop now. This guessing who could win against who is just wrong in this thread.

    Congrats to both teams on a great year!

    You're right. I'm just tired of someone trying to convince me that a team (Bell Co.) that beat two teams on their schedule with winning records could win convincingly over a team that defeated not one but two top ten teams on their way to Papa John's.

    Robinson is a great Qb but when you have 4-5 guys in your face it is very hard to get a pass off, This kid is the real deal and I hope him the best in college.
    Way to go Knights on title #2
    Congratulations to LO on one amazing year and a great turnaround in program and hopes that this will continue.

    The Flash have impressed lots of people in West Ky this year...Congrats on a GREAT year and picked the wrong team to come out somewhat flat and awe struck! Good luck to Mr. Robinson and the other Flash Seniors! 92 Tds to like 5 INTs is CRAZY no matter what schedule you are playing. I see the Flash only getting better as it is clearly the fastest growing school in McCracken County.

    Robinson had NO time to throw and the lack of a running game was brutal...I totally agree about 5 classes.

    Also, congrats to Catholic on another great year and championship!

    Well there were alot of Lone Oak fans on these boards thinking they had a chance to beat Lexington Catholic or at least be in the game, but that didn't happen either.

    Hickman took several hard shots throughout the playoffs yet continued to get right back up and kept ticking. After battling and defeating cancer, you can understand where his tough mentality comes from.

    Well put! This thread is for discussion of the game.

    A few of you in this thread need to re-read our rules page!
