    Well, what can you do? That's how the geography works out... the further East you go, the less interesting the district title race becomes...

    Not sure what the present enrollment figures look like as a whole, but Holmes's attendance is roughly 1K.

    This is just a recommendation from the Coaches Association. It appears to me that the coaches want this, just like most wanted proposition 20, but the BOC holds all the cards. And they tend to forget that they work for the member schools, not that the schools work for them.

    If this goes through I would think the playoff system would go back to only the top two teams would make the playoffs from each district.

    Just like some forget that the 'C' in BOC stands for CONTROL.

    Nope, the format they chose was 4 teams per district, with 4 and 5 team districts.

    By looking at having 5 teams in a district would allow Russell Red Devils -AA to pick up better competition during the regular season. We compete with 8 teams in our district. That leaves us with 3 open dates to pick up. We pick up Greenup-AAA, Ashland-AAA, and Boyd Co.-AAA. 7 mandated district games+ 3 picks. I have not seen the breakdown where Russell would fall. But this would be interesting to see us play up.

    Talk about watering down a system, KY doesn't have enough teams for this, it would be better off having just 3 classes the way it is now.
    I BET IF YOU OR ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS WALK OFF THE FIELD AS A STATE CHAMPION IT WOULD NOT MATTER IF THERE WAS 10 CLASSES. MORE SCHOOLS BEING A STATE CHAMPIONS WILL ONLY INCREASE THE POPULARITY OF THE SPORT IN OUR STATE. ASK ANYONE WHO HAS EVER WON A STATE TITILE IN WRESTILING. IT DOES NOT MATTER THAT LESS THAN HALF THE SCHOOLS COMPETE IN THAT SPORT IT IS STILL A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.

    Sounds to me like the coaches want their job to be easier. Get off your hump and help your kids get into college. If they're not being seen, they're either not good enough or you aren't making the right contacts. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    First off, Thanks for SHOUTING!

    Don't act like you know how I would think! Less teams per class and it's less of a deal to be called a champion. It will not increase the popularity. The system would be watered down. Yes Ohio has 6 state football champions per year, BUT, they have over 100 teams per class. Want a state title? Then work for it!

    The day when Football players can receive individual state titles is the day we can compare state titles in football to wrestling, two totally different things!

    Believe it or not, there are high school kids out there that know nothing about registering for the clearinghouse.

    Yep. The coaches need to help the kids out. The parents need to be involved as well but does a college recruiter really want to hear the parents view of their kid? I think not. The high school coach needs to step in and send the kid in the right direction. After all, they've never done it before and most only get one chance.

    They're also implying that scouts only go to the State Championship games to recruit kids. It looks like they're trying to make this into something it's not.

    That is the difficult thing about it. A lot of parents just don't understand the recruiting process and what they need to do. Some coaches don't even know all that it takes, as the parents may have never gone through the process before, and unless you are at a school that turns out D-1 players every year some coaches are in the same boat.
