    And another thought. You point out the size of that crowd that came out for the game; which is great! That money is what the KHSAA wants their hands on. And I get it that they have to generate money to pay bills but don't pull this seeding idea to help with making money in the finals. It is not the answer to the money problem. We are now streaming the finals and all that kind of stuff which is hurting attendance at our level just like it is at...

    And that is the biggest of two obvious problems. There is no such system. So it puts the traditional powers at an advantage year in and year out imo. Which kills football as a whole in the excitement department. For example, I have only watched the 6A game when Meade Co and Scott County played in the last probably 15 years (roughly) because it's the same old thing with Trinity or X most likely winning. Nothing against them except the outcome is...

    And you my friend have nailed the exact reason they are trying to do this!! If the KHSAA thinks more people will come to see the same teams year after year win the state championship they are way out of touch. It's those teams that haven't made it much or ever that bring the whole county due to excitement. I think we could be the only state where the folks in charge are actually trying to 'rig' the thing to keep the 'haves' in the best position...

    Absolutely correct!! Call your building AD and get them to express your concerns to the District AD. There are way more high schools playing football than the 7 or 8 that are represented on the advisory committee. And I will point out it is not their fault either. They are not elected so they are not in any way required to ask the rest of us what we think or for our input. I have no personal issue with anyone involved because they are good...

    Not about me being better or worse or my opinion being accepted by you or anyone else. It is just the way it is. That is how I see it. To many times loopholes give an advantage to some schools. Not blaming your school or any one person. We all know by 2019 this schools numbers are not going to be 4A but they won't be the first to get this advantage. Not a personal attack.

    As a 6A school playing 4A they should do well.

    Here is how absurd Max Preps ratings are. Even after defeating Johnson Central head to head and winning the state championship Johnson Central and Wayne County are ranked ahead of Franklin-Simpson in the final Max Preps Poll. That is why seeding using polls does not make any sense.

    Travel could actually be an even bigger problem on Thanksgiving weekend. Think about this. I will use FSHS as an example. I suspect most had us picked as the 4th best team in the semi-finals in 4A this year and Johnson Central as the 1 seed. So on Thanksgiving we would have had to practice and do our normal thing. The next day my team has to make at a minimum 5 hour trip to play JC. That is not reasonable or fair to our team when compared to...

    There has to be a reason for seeding in the final 4. Could someone on the football advisory committee please post an answer to a couple of things if you don't mind. 1. Was there any polling or communication to the states other head coaches for input on if we were for or against seeding (I might have missed it but I don't recall any communication on that)? 2. What was the thinking/reasoning among the committee that led to their...

    Is Fred Douglas really going to have 4A numbers. They currently play 6A I think. So wouldnít their numbers increase as the school gets the next year or 2 under their belt? School isnít splitting itís new evidentially with 6A numbers now. This one out of all of the schools is strange to me. Anybody got any ideas or understanding on that situation?

    Oh heck; just ranting! We will probably always be a 4 seed after that if we are fortunate enough to get that far. :( :isurrender::isurrender::isurrender:

    Why would the KHSAA want to get into seeding based on things not on the field of play? No matter how you cut it computer rankings are a joke imo. Most years rankings are laughable and sad at the same time when you actually see some teams in person in some cases. Rankings by people who never see the team play. Really? I tell our kids that rankings mean nothing; it's how you practice and play that matters. If you had seen us play week one this...
