    Does it matter who Trinity plays in the first round?? Unless you fast forward to maybe the regional final, none of Trinity's playoff games are going to be close. And how does adding another 15-20 much smaller schools to Trinity's class make their class more competitive?

    Just a little hyperbole. Participation trophies have zero to do with the state classification system, and probably aren't in the top 1000 of the worst things ever list.

    Who else should Cov Cath play in NKY aside from SK?? The vast majority of schools in NKY are smaller than Cov Cath and really wouldn't provide much of game. They already play Cooper and Ryle. That basically leaves SK, Campbell, Boone and Conner. Cov Cath almost has to look outside of NKY to play.

    When I was doing it 18 or 20 years ago, it wasn't as easy to find good craft brews. The market has changed so much. Making your own beer doesn't save you money and is really a lot of work. Washing, sterilizing, filling and capping all those bottles really does suck. And it's not cheap and it doesn't take a big mistake to ruin a whole batch and all that time and effort. I may revisit the hobby again but if I do, I'll be legging my beer...

    95% of the schools already know how they measure up against the best. They don't need a running clock beatdown to find that out. Beat downs aren't good for your program or community interest. As you get better, you schedule better. Some years are going to be easier than others as all teams go through cycles.

    Is 4 trophies that much better than 6?? Reducing classes isn't going to change the fact that a handful of schools in each class will be head and shoulders above the rest. It won't eliminate playoff blowouts in the early rounds unless you only let district winners in. With all that being true, what problem would going back to 4 classes solve except to make the "there's too many trophy" folks happy?

    I've said it many times about scheduling. It's a two way street. How many NKY teams will Cov Cath want to play?? They don't have many now and it seems like they've always played teams from out of area outside of a few here and there like Beechwood and Ryle. Cov Cath has to want to play teams from NKY before those teams can say no to them.

    I've never seen anyone priced even close to that high in 4 years of playing. Kerwyn Williams is $11k. Wacky.

    I got into Homebrewing pretty heavy in my late 20's early 30's. Started with a Mr Beer kit, which turned out horrible. I then tried full store kits with complete recipes and quickly moved to creating my own recipes. I made porters, stouts, wheat bears, and even a couple belgians. They all turned out pretty well. But it was the one hobby I've had that my wife absolutely hated (she couldn't stand the smell of wort cooking) and I absolutely...

    It would be really easy to put Dixie ahead of Conner except for the fact that Scott beat Dixie pretty easily but lost to Conner. After seeing all three teams I'm of the opinion that Scott might be the best of those three teams.

    I'm not saying they are doing anything wrong, or that youth/middle school programs aren't important. They obviously are, and it's very hard if not impossible, for high school teams to be successful without a youth/middle school program. Just making the comment that success at the youth level doesn't always translate to the high school level. And lack of success at the youth/middle school level doesn't doom you for failure.

    I just spent the better part of two days in testing trying to figure out my preference. I'm still undecided, and will likely have to continue to do further testing.

    That was one of my biggest fears when I first started working from home. I've found it's completely possible to do that while working from home. While me and my team don't get face time, we communicate and collaborate daily via phone, text, and video conferencing. You don't need an office to be able to work as a team. Granted it takes a little more effort and work... but it's definitely possible. Still though, we do get together at least once...

    Sorry, but I don't buy that kicking is suffering at the next level. If anything it's better than ever. There are camps devoted to just kicking. When I played in the 80's, kicking at the high school level for the most part was terrible. Now, while there are some teams that still struggle, with the willingness of soccer players to do double duty, most schools have serviceable kickers. Heck, I've seen an 8th grader that can hit from 50 yards,...

    Kicking has always been a part of the game. Why penalize teams that have gotten good at at?? I also would hate to see the risk reward choice of kicking for one or putting your offense on the field for two go away. Changing that from going for an easy 1 point or a hard two points after a TD to a hard one vs a harder two doesn't seem as exciting, or as balanced. With no kicks, I think you'd see teams always going for two, since your going to...

    I've been working from home since January. I do travel a couple times a month, but no more than a day or two a week. I have an office I can go to, but it's in Chicago, so I'm not there very often. I love it. It takes some discipline, but as long as you have a plan everyday, and have a space all to yourself with the ground rules that you are not to be bothered, it is not all that difficult.

    I guess I'm just dense. I just don't see how the changing of personnel on an extra point negatively affects the game or how getting rid of the kick makes it better.

    So because you are attempting a point, mass substitutions are a problem in the case of an extra point. I'm still not seeing why new personnel is such as issue on an extra point. What about new personnel bothers you?? Does it bother you when teams put in a heavy package on the goal line?? Just trying to understand the thought process.

    Then we should do away with punts too...why change personnel when you are just giving the ball away? And situational substitutions, like speed packages, heavy packages, etc. And what about field goals....most teamI'm not sure why changing a few people is such a bad thing for extra points, but yet not bad for other plays or situations.

    I'm not sure I understand why you feel the extra point should be eliminated. Teams score touchdowns all the time too...lets make that harder while we are at it.

    I played 5 different lineups and came out slightly ahead. What I thought would be my best lineup completely tanked. I've had a good week so far in baseball and have won a few tickets to football contests so I'm going to go a little bigger this weekend.

    Again, football is an emotional game. People express emotions, joy and excitement in many different ways. While football is certainly a team game, it's a team game made up of individual efforts. If one of my players does something great, I expect them to be excited and really don't have any issues as long as that expression doesn't involve taunting, or inappropriate language, actions or behavior. I hate seeing kids being forced to act like...
