    The move to 6A is only a bad idea if you are interested in winning a state title. If you don't care about winning state championships, then the move to 6A by all the Boone County schools makes for a fun local rivalry. As has been commented above, Cooper is missing out on a real chance at a 5A title this year.

    This year, for Cooper, you may be correct. But for the following 3 years it wouldn't matter what class Cooper is in, which is why I do not know why this is such a topic.

    People do not know the entire story which is the most aggravating part of this.

Welcome to the site
    Saying someone is a lying is calling them a liar. I am saying you do not have all the information about the move to 6a. but for some reason, you want to say that someone is lying when information is being passed on.

    You might be closer to Randy, you might be with him everyday, it does not mean you know.

    If I am wrong, spill your facts, who told Randy he had to play 6a?

    I would not have posted anything about the topic, except you said I was lying!!

    Don't be frustrated. Tell the story, then people will know.

    I would say lets give the coaches and administration from both schools time to prove if this is a smart move or not. I would think all can agree that this year is a off year for both Highlands and Cov Cath, I also say all can agree that the boosters from both of those schools will not accept years such as this and I would look for both schools to not have repeats of this season, but with this being said in the past both of these schools usually have to fight each other to get out of N. KY, and usually one of these two teams end up playing in the state finals or at least the semi-finals. My point to this is that getting out of N KY to have the chance to make it that far is remote. Now in the case of Cooper, which I feel has been the strength of the Boone County schools as of late, this move was a smart move. From what I can see getting to the semi-finals is more of a reality. I may be incorrect, but the Louisville schools, which again history has proven, is the strength of 6A more often than not will have to beat each other up to reach the semi-finals and when any team gets to that point anything can happen. How many times have a late season or post season injury to key players effected a teams opportunity of advancing?

    I guess what I see is that Cooper and Conner are rolling the dice with the move to 6A and felt making it farther in the playoffs was more possible in 6A, but again time will tell. If history of playing 6A schools in Coopers case and their win/loss record against local 6A teams stays on the same, then I would have to agree with the move.

    So instead of beating these coaches and administration up, how about let it play out and a year or so down the road, then look to say, "I told you so". I am sure both will then admit if it were a good move or not. Also, another part of this that nobody is considering, is with the growth the Boone Co area is experiencing both may have been forced to move up in the near future anyway??

    Just a thought of an outside observer.
