- Lots of teams that are tough to figure out thus far. Injuries and inconsistency.
- Not sure if the outcome of the Campbell County vs. Cooper game says more about exposed weaknesses on Campbell County's part, or improvements on Coopers part.
- Jeremiah Lee was kind of Mr. Everything for the Jags. Some people have been questioning the decision to have him playing as much as he has outside of QB. Not sure how the injury happened that took him out of the game on Friday, but if he's not back soon, things aren't looking so great for the Cooper offense.
- The first half of New Cath's season has been a real doozy for the last couple of years. Not sure if that's paying off or not.
- The Walton-Verona schedule the last few years seems hasn't seemed to pay off for the team come playoff time. It's hard not to put them ahead of New Cath based on their respective records this season, but I think it's really a toss up at this point guessing which team would win if they played head-to-head. I'm glad happenstance has WV pitted against Paintsville on the 28th. That should be a much more solid regular season challenge for the Bearcats, and will tell us a lot about them. Sure seems like they need to find a passing game if they want to go anywhere in the playoffs.
- I'm inclined to think that Highlands is bound to be the team that snaps Cov Cath's streak of running clock wins in Kentucky.
- We're a third of the way into the regular season, and three teams with losing records still make the Top 10 in NKY football. That tells me that NKY football is down this year.
- Scott. Are they any good or not? Who knows at this point.
- For a second year in a row, Ludlow is doing the most with the least in NKY. Lloyd is close behind them.
Sep 12, 18, 08:06 AM #3Cracking up! SK loses a spot for blowing out a team? Highlands can be #2 if they beat SK next week. No respect!

I fully expected your objection, trust me. But believe me, I didn't make the call out of disrespect. I'm not going to put a 3-1 team over a 4-0 team without first considering some real evidence for doing so. What's your counter to the facts in the paragraph above this one?
I'll readily acknowledge that Simon Kenton has the potential to beat Highlands, and they may well do so. But at this point I think the Birds have a leg up on the Pioneers. I may be wrong, and if I am, I'll gladly acknowledge that I made the wrong call here after Simon Kenton beats Highlands. In the meantime, I have Highlands ranked over Simon Kenton.

They lost their first game in 1994, so the streak leading to the 1993 state championship ended in the state finals.
They lost their first game in 1995, so the streak leading to the 1994 state championship ended in the state finals.
They lost the 3rd game of the season in 1998, and they lost to Moeller, Beechwood, and Highlands in the 1997 regular season prior to winning the state championship, so that streak wouldn't have been any more than 7 or 8 games, I think.
They lost their first 3 games in 2007, so the streak leading to the 2006 state championship ended in the state finals.
As for the win/loss records following the state championships in 1987 and 1988, I couldn't say for sure, but if memory serves, @colonel-fan might have those somewhere.

19 in a row is the record.

The previous record was 16 in a row. The final 14 games in 1987 and the first two games in 1988.

1. We'll know a little more about Highlands after they take on Lex Cath and SK.
2. We'll know a little more about SK after they take on Highlands and Beechwood.
3. Is Campbell County a pretender or contender? The Ryle game should tell a lot.
4. The road doesn't get any easier for New Cath. Can they play well enough to compete/win against Louisville Christian Academy and Conner or will the season slip away?
5. Will Ryle come out swinging against Campbell County? If not, their next W may not come for a while.
6. How serious are the injuries at Cooper and what does that mean for the progress of the team?

The entire point of power rankings is that I'm making rankings/projections based upon which teams I think would beat which other teams if they played at that particular point in time. I say that had Highlands played Simon Kenton on September 12th, that Highlands would have beaten Simon Kenton. That was the entire purpose of the exercise.
So are you saying that had Highlands and Simon Kenton played on September 12th, that you think Simon Kenton would have won? (And then Simon Kenton would have turned around 10 days later and lost to Highlands by 31 points.)
I want to understand your logic. Try to explain to me your position as if I was a 5 year old.
