    Another suggestion, instead of those ridiculously boring, 1 in a million scenario coaches "education" classes. They should be teaching their coaches how to get their kids to the next level. That should be their ultimate goal anyway. Honestly though, if you have a stud athlete and can't figure out how to pick up a phone and call a college about the kid you shouldn't be a coach anyway.

    With all due respect to the state of Kentucky and high school football
    NO WAY do you guys need six classes. Five is very much enough with the amount of schools participating in this sport. If anything maybe they should realign the five classes, they have to make at least six or seven in each district.

    We only have four classes right now. This an extremely large jump.

    This is NOT going to be a coach bashing thread!!!

    Coaches, every single one of them, give so much to this sport and every single one of them wants their kids to be successful. You may not agree with this proposal of theirs, but attacking them or their job performance isn't the way to express it.

    Let's focus on this proposal and judge it on its own merit, agree or disagree, either way. But cut the coaches some slack and leave them out of it.

    Thanks guys/gals.

    Good work. I wonder if this region would be divided differently for geographic purposes.

    I would think, and hope Beechwood would want to move up one, possibly two classes.

    The thing that stands out in my mind from the recommendation is they said they would have all 4 and 5 team districts (no 6 team districts or larger).

    Geographically, that is going to prove tough to implement, plus you'd have to know who was going to elect to play up in order to really do an alignment.

    But for preliminary discussion, I think TK has done a great job here.

    So....is this the alternative to splitting the publics and privates? If so, I applaud them for at least considering such an alternative. Given the choice, I'd MUCH prefer this than a split.

    I sort of get the impression this is the hedge bet. They haven't given up on Prop20, but if it doesn't pass, they have this to fall back on. But I don't think this will pass either, I don't even know if the KHSAA will consider it.

    Still a horrible idea, in terms of everything ... increased travel, watered-down titles, etc. Four classes is quite enough.

    So, it is still possible for Prop 20 and 6 classes? LOL!!!!!!!

    Could you imagine it. Some of the private schools would be the only team in their class. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My understanding is that this has been talked about for a couple of years - before Prop 20 was a Prop.

    If you only have 3-4 district games the travel would not be so horrible as 1/2 of those would be at home and you could play local teams for non district play.
