    They had one. I can't figure it is wise to get rid of Hyde before Chubb proves himself. Granted, Hyde was not setting the world on fire but that isn't only his fault.

    CollegefootballGuy69, you inadvertently left out England's yardage. Do you have that info?

    Great to see that Farfsing is back in the lineup and apparently feeling well since he ran for 77 yards on that ankle.

    I hope you are right Mediocre Nachos. A 6'5" WR could give Boone fits. Of course, the rain may make passing a little more difficult. I look for CC to come out throwing from the start before the weather becomes a factor.

    I have quit voting against Conner. I think the Cougars will win this one.

    They just sent him to Jacksonville for a 5th round pick. The loss of Leaonard Fournette to a pulled hamstring meant the Jaguars needed a replacement, so I guess Cleveland needed to strike while the iron was hot. I would have preferred they kept Hyde whom I think is still a very good back. Chubb has not played much for a reason. Mainly because he doesn't protect the passer well enough yet. I suppose we'll get to see how quickly he can...

    Don't waste any pity on us. There are a lot of things to complain about in a school system but playing on natural grass ain't one of them. It seems like it has rained every Friday for about 3 weeks or more. But this weather isn't bad at all. Compared to snow and ice this is down right balmy. We don't know what bad weather is in NKY.

    This game is for bragging rights in the district. Simon Kenton has already won the district. Campbell County is 5-3 while Boone County is 2-6. Each lost to Simon Kenton. CC lost 7-27. Boone lost to SK 7-39. Each played Cooper and the games were decided by 1 point, a victory for Campbell County and a loss for Boone County. CC posted wins against Conner and Ryle, while Boone lost to both opponents. Will Boone rise to the occasion on...

    Paul Brown used to be the coach at Massillon. Pronounced Mass'-lun, btw. I went to a game there vs. Canton McKinley Bulldogs many, many moons ago and they had an actual immature tiger on a leash and they would get it to growl into a microphone. I cannot recall who won that game. You can tell what impressed me the most. I was just a youngin'.

    I think it has more to do with preserving the field, if we're talking about grass fields. Male and female soccer games, band halftime show, varsity football, freshman football, jv football. That can be a lot of wear and tear during a rainy week. If you are talking turf, there doesn't seem to be a good reason to cancel a game unless there is lightning.

    Sorry, theguru, I didn't have opportunity to post the recap until now, but here it is. Prior to the game I thought this was a very winnable game for Boone. I picked the Rebels in the poll. I believe the two teams to be very evenly matched. But if you noticed, just before kickoff on Friday night, I posted a video of Hee Haw’s “Gloom, Despair, Agony on Me” in the prediction thread. I knew that Boone’s QB was not going to play on Friday...

    So that's where Peak went. He played QB for Boone's Frosh team last year when he was an 8th grader.

    ^ good reminder. I have often been guilty of seeing better from the top of the stands than the guy on the pitch. Losing in PKs is one of the most bitter ways to lose an "overtime" game in sports. And, no, I haven't thought of a better way to do it.

    Conner has trouble with power runners. Either England or Saladin could do well against them. The question is if Ryle can contain Christian Webster and Hicks. Hicks not only gives Conner a passing option, he can run the ball well, also. I picked Ryle in this one but I always seem to underestimate Conner. They win games I don't think they should win. Evidentally, Trosper and his staff are good at preparing their teams and making game time...

    Mine was blank for a long time. I liked the simplicity and I didn't know how to add one. I tried it once but the pic was too large (memory-wise). Then I decided I should have an avatar so I added the current one--a pic of me from about 15 years ago. It just oozes "friendly," don't you think?

    Who are the local kids that may be playing in this game? I had an opportunity to see LWC against Pikeville. LWC has a high powered offense. They put the pedal to the metal and don't let up.

    These two teams know one another well as both friends and foes. This Friday they are foes, at least until the clock says it's over. Cooper, 2-5, is coming off a loss to Ryle that probably sticks in their craw. They will want a win against a cross-county rival. If RB Anthony Witschey does not play more of the offensive production will fall on Sophomore Jeremiah Lee. Boone will also have to find a way to cover the athletic WR Mikey...

    Post 4/4. 4th Quarter begins SK 36 Boone Co 7 Boone is at their 22. Two runs yielded no yardage. On 3rd down Grau throws to his TE but he was well-covered and the ball fell to the turf. Grau made a leaping one-handed grab of the snap on the punt and got off a 40 yarder. SK takes over on their own 40. Carmony completes a pass on first down for 8 yards. RB goes across the 50 for the first down. An incomplete pass, a short...

    Post 3/4. 3rd Quarter Start Boone kicks off to start the third quarter. There is a good return by the Pioneers and they have the ball at their own 45. Carmony keeps it for a 5 yard gain followed by an incompletion. Sergent rips off a 25 yard run down to Boone’s 25. Austin Hammack cuts through the middle of the Boone defense taking all the way to the 1 yard line. Sergent is tackled for a loss. On second down Sergent fumbles and the...

    Post 2/4 It’s 2nd and 5 at the Boone County 34 yard line. Shutt, running out of the FB position takes the hand off and goes between the guard and tackle. He’s hit by an OLB at the 35 yard line who slides down and is hanging on to Shutt’s leg. Shutt fights forward dragging the player to the 41 where more defenders help out to make the stop. But after a 7 yard gain, it’s a Boone County first down. On 2nd down, Sr. QB Zach Grau, heaves the...

    Post 1/4. I will make 4 posts. Each post will cover one quarter. The final score was SK 39 Boone County 7 but the action on the field was much more competitive than the score suggests until the fourth quarter. This is long so if you’d rather not read it then you can go to Star 64 web site and click on the game of the week. The whole game is there but it will take you about 3 hrs to watch. Boone County was set to receive the...
