    Sorry, but participation trophies aren’t a recent phenomenon, and classing sports doesn’t mean everyone get a trophy. It’s a lazy argument, and one that doesn’t hold any water.

    And Delaware only has about 70 or so basketball playing schools. I’m guessing Alaska probably has even less. There no logical reason for KY not to class all the major sports. Just because you’ve always done something one way, doesn’t mean it’s the right or best way.

    The neighborhood guys aren’t setting their own lines. They are using Vegas lines.

    As others have mentioned, Vegas isn't worried about being right. They just need enough action from both sides of the line to make sure they win enough "juice". They aren't geniuses at picking games correctly They are geniuses at making money of people betting sports.

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Boi Na Braza in BGP Break Room
    It’s been a couple years, but last time I went it cost $49.99/ person although you can catch discounts every now and then. Food is very good. My recommendation is to be patient. The really good cuts of meat come around less often. No need to eat any chicken especially. Hold out for what you really want and take your time. The salad bar is big, and very good too and can at least keep you busy while waiting for the good stuff. It is all you...

    I don’t see any issues with the occasional Thursday night game, especially if it comes with television exposure. I wouldn’t however want to do this more than once or so a season.

    About 534,000. Kentucky High Schools In 2015/16, about 80,000 played sports. 7/12/16 KHSAA Participation Numbers Reach Record Levels In 215-16 | Kentucky High School Athletic Association So roughly, transfers involve about .8% of the student athlete population. Someone tell me again how rampant the transfer problem currently is??

    I'll never get all the resistance to seeding. I get that people fear it not being done fairly, but yet not seeding, and keeping things random, is perhaps the least fair way to hold a tournament. It's not really all that difficult. If I can seed a wrestling tournament with 200 kids from all over 3 states, surely someone can properly seed 4 football teams.

    Not only can those dogs you listed kill, those breeds were the ones killing the most people. Pit Bulls have only been public enemy number one in the dog world for the last 20 years or so. Before that, it was Rotts and St Bernards. Remember the movie Cujo?? That breed wasn't just chosen randomly chosen. And now, are those breeds suddenly safe and not dangerous?? Heck, there was a year that dachsunds were the breed that caused the most deaths....

    It’s not really confirmable until we see if they’ve petitioned to continue playing up a class. Playing in 4a where their enrollment puts them wouldn’t surprise me, but them playing up again wouldn’t surprise me either.

    Some of the districts as they are currently listed look a little goofy. I'm sure these will change, especially after schools decide to play up (or get pushed down because someone wants to play up).

    Scott is currently 4a. I believe during the last alignment, they were in line to be the smallest 5A school, but got pushed down when a couple teams petitioned to play up. East Jessamine is also already 4a.

    Maybe. I know I'm not anywhere near as close to the situation as you, but I saw them up close on the field for four years, and they improved every year during that time. By no means were they a great team...but they were slowly becoming more and more competitive and heading in the right direction...at least from what I saw in person, and on film.

    Going winless while not playing a district schedule certainly isn't a good thing. It had really felt like things were turning around when Siple was still there. But then he left, and they went from being in a really tough district (with South Oldham, Scott, Conner, and Cooper) to being stuck in a district with Cov Cath and Highlands. That double whammy has really hurt the program just when things were starting to improve.

    Again, the question was, how not playing in district has a negative effect on participation. At least not playing a district schedule for a couple years gives you the flexibility to schedule 3 other teams that are much closer to your level. I think playing out of district long term would be a bad thing. But right now they are at ground zero, and this gives them a chance to at least make the process of building more manageable. They won't be...

    Channel 9 is calling for 4-6 or more depending on how long the ice portion of the storm lasts. Channel 12 is calling for 2-5 with .2 of ice Channel 19 is calling for 4-7 All are saying there is a ton of uncertainty and these totals could change. Channel 5 seems to be the most conservative.

    Yep. If the coach just goes in and orders the stuff under his name, the vendor has no idea if kids will end up wearing the uni's, especially if they are all adult sizes. The custom sports apparel business is a tough, competitive business. I'm sure some might, but I'm guessing more than a few wouldn't turn this type of order away.

    So getting beat down by Covington Cathlic, Highlands and Dixie (most of the time) every year, and traveling to take another beat down against a number 1 seed in round one of the playoffs, is helpful to the program and gets more kids to come out?? Getting your heads kicked in 4 out of the last 5 weeks of every season can't be fun or any more attractive to potential players and coaches.

    It can snow all it wants. While I’m not a big fan of winter, things just don’t seem right, unless we get a couple big snows. Seems like it has been way too long. I kinda like watching big snow events unfold. And now that I work from home and don’t really have to travel in it, it’s even better. Just need to make sure I have enough alcohol to last me through the weekend.

    My debit card has a daily limit on withdrawals and purchases. I think it’s $500 for each. So I’m not terribly worried about someone wiping me out. Quite honestly, I so rarely use my debit card anymore, I typically don’t even carry it. I don’t have any fear or concerns about using it though, although I would never use it to make online purchases.

    I have 3. One Amex Delta Card, an Amex Everyday card, and a Cash back card. I use the delta card for all my work expenses and travel (roughly $1k/month), the everyday card for groceries (you get a bonus) and all my utility bills. I can then covert those points to my delta rewards after collecting them at the bonus rates. For everything else I use the cash back card. Doing it this way normally gets me a free flight for 2 to almost anywhere,...

    Maybe so. In my circle of friends and family, though, almost everyone has gone this route. Not everyone pays right away like me (in which case I probably am in the minority), but many are paying for everything with their cards and paying off in full monthly. I pretty much pay for everything but my mortgage. With bills, I set up the auto payment with my credit cards, then an auto payment on the credit card for the bill amount the same day. ...

    I get that. But Im also in the using my credit cards for everything camp. I have a miles card, a cash back card, and a points card that I use depending on the situation and what gets the best rewards. After using the card, I immediately make a payment for the amount spent using the phone app linked to the card. You just have to be disciplined to make that payment right away. This prevents me from overspending, and is really no different...

    This may be a little misleading. For example, Delaware is number 10, which being from Delaware surprises me with only about 60 football playing schools. However there are two D1 FCS schools in the state, both of which do recruit heavily instate. I definitely wouldn’t say Delaware is one of the top 10 football states in the country.
