    Only 1 post so far ? Wow ! Anyway, the Cats started out with not playing defense and were giving wide open 3 point shots. Going to the zone, imo helped the Cats get going, I love this team in that zone D. After the half and I feel sure was probably a "revival meeting" on playing man ....this team came out playing much better, getting up in shooter's face and denying the open shot. Nick Richards looked very good, 24 pts. / 15 reb..

I hope / pray that both teams stay free of any injuries.

    Its been a while since I gave a sermon to the Raceland team on here but here it goes ..... Ram Players .....I am sure that your coaching staff has an excellent offensive and defensive game plans in place. You guys will probably meet, practice / run thru all on Thanksgiving Day. Everything is in place and I have No Doubt that game plan will work, That Game Plan is Useless .....UNLESS YOU EXECUTE IT ! So, Before you go out on that field on...

    One interesting note / notes on the Pikeville / Raceland series .....although this has never been an ongoing or annual game between these two, I believe that I am right in saying that regardless of if or where either team was ranked, the home team has won. I can only think of a couple of regular season games between the Rams and Panthers. One being in the 80's when a Bill Tom Ross coached Raceland team upset a top ranked Pikeville team, I can't...

    I picked my Rams but will say that this will not be a 2td or more game / win. Raceland players are going to have to play another "leave it all on the field" effort as they had last week to come out with a win. Raceland by less than a td ...probably a three point game or less.

    I agree and think that they could be a very good pressing team. Last night, the t.v. commentators mentioned that Cal had said that he wanted to press, see how they looked but that didn't happen.

    You may have to get here around 6pm to get a decent parking space. Parking here isn't the best, there is excellent parking but one has to arrive early. Ram Stadium is a great atmosphere for high school football and adding a state semi final between two teams w /passionate fan bases will only add to it. I don't now if they will be bringing bleachers from the baseball complex or not. So, imo, in short order it will be standing room around the...

    Louisville has an unbelievable athlete at qb in Jackson. That fact will keep them in the game. Jackson can beat you with his legs or arm. Problem for the Cards is that they have nothing to go with Jackson. This will be another close UK / UL game and I think that U.K. will get this one. U.K. by 6.

    After a very good 1st half, building a 21 pt. lead and just when you think that this team is about to "get it" ...(what Cal has been teaching, playing for team instead of self and closing teams out / finishing).... we get the 2nd half and the complete opposite. U.K. was playing good defense, were rebounding well, passing the ball in the 1st half and revert back to being lazy on defense, not guarding people or getting on the glass like they were...

    Exactly, Not only A&M. Florida, Bama, UGA, Ark. are all imo playing better than U.K. right now. The SEC is going to be one of the best conferences in America this season and I can see U.K. finishing 4th in the SEC right now.

    As for the bolded, Raceland / Paintsville have been going at it since the late 60's thru now. This rivalry is the type that the old saying ...throw records / stats out the window fits. This season was a perfect example ....Paintsville started strong and put a beating on the Rams in the regular season, winning the district. Friday, Raceland came out punching the Tigers in the mouth and went on to win

    I honestly thought that Raceland would be 6-4 this season w / losing in the 2nd or 3rd rnd of the playoffs, ending up 7-5 or 8-5. This Raceland team is not a young team, 16 seniors on a 1A team is a lot, imo. This team was inexperienced due to the previous two teams also had a lot of Sr's, that played before these kids as soph., jr's.. Now they are experienced and playing very confident. I am picking these Rams to advance to Commonwealth /now...

    I certainly hope so. We / Raceland went forever not winning a region, I mean I lost count of the region finals that Raceland has been in, only to lose the title game. A lot of those came at the hands of Beechwood. My standing joke during those times was that Raceland should ask Budweiser for a contract on sponsorship ....bc Raceland had been "Beechwood aged" since somewhere around the late 70's thu the 80's and beyond before the re aliments...

    Just one more bit of funny info was yesterday, when I had a Raceland player's dad tell me that one thing that they saw.... "when arriving, turning into the stadium was a carton of "Orange Crush" pop in the road, had been smashed / ran over ....they didn't know if a Paintsville fan had set it there, knowing it would be seen when the Rams bus arrived. :" ... He thought that was a good, and harmless prank/shot if they had. Anyway, it served the...

    Just a few stats on this one from the KHSAA web site ...... It's easy to see that there was no offensive explosion from either team and the 2 TD difference was from the two pick 6 int returns by Raceland's G. Lewis Raceland rushing / team = 64yds. Paintsville rushing / team = 46 yds. Raceland passing / team = 115 yds. Paintsville passing / team = 157 yds. Raceland rushing leaders = H. Lacks, 10 carries - 34yds / J. Adkins, 16 carries -...

    From what I could gather from the Raceland radio broadcast was that he was hit very hard on his first 2 or 3 carries, went to the sidelines shaken up / dazed and although he played after that, he wasn't as effective. I do know that the Rams defense / LB's were keying on Allen a lot....everywhere he went, Allen had Ram defenders with him. That (keying the best back) was a part of the Raceland game preps. Czar ...:idunno: that's just what I...

    Before last weekend, I thought that the Cats just may catch UGA in the classic "trap game" ....a week after a UGA win over Auburn and the week before the in state rival Ga. Tech. Nope ....Auburn put a beat down on UGA and spoiled the party. Now, UK is @ Georgia, between the hedges vs. a very "P'd" off bunch of Dawgs plus on their senior day. ...... UGA by 3 TD's

    Like your Panthers, Raceland has played a brutal schedule. I think that prepares the kids for post season play, especially after the first round. The only 1A teams that Raceland played in the regular season were Paintsville and Fairview in our dist.. Our losses have been to 3A Ashland (Lost in reg. final to JCHS), Portsmouth West, OH. (were ranked #7 in their OH. Div.), 2A Sommerset (lost to Danville in Reg. Semi) and 1A Paintsville (our Dist....
