    You know I love the Greyhounds and would not trade my time there for anything. But, when Mercer won the district title in 1986, I was really glad we did not have to face the Greyhounds a 2nd time! Like you said... we won 1 playoff game.... the region championship and were in the semifinals. Very different set up.

    Coach Gruneisen use to say things are never as good as they seem, or as bad as they seem. Maybe another run for the Birds is right around the corner and things are not nearly as bad as some of their fans think.

    I believe this is simply an idea. I do not believe it has ever been presented to any entity as a proposal. My understanding, the 3-4 seed would play for a bowl championship.... not to be considered as a “state champion.” It is an attempt to move back the season, a week out of the heat & eliminate the 1 v. 4 blowouts. I’ve also heard support for your plan as presented here & what you sent to the advisory committee.

    Looks like some schools are blessed with very good coaches. It is refreshing to hear about the good things these coaches are doing at their schools. Thank you for the responses and please keep them rolling in.

    The only program I remember with "Super 8" video back in the early 70s was Frankfort HS. I enjoyed watching those games in color. Every other school's video,at least the ones I saw, Boyle's opponents during that time, used 16 mm. Glad to see someone else out there is as old as I am! My guess is that both teams in this situation have all the video they want on each other.

    Different perspective: What schools have a really good coach and the school/community needs to provide more support.... funding, facilities, staffing, etc. ?? What schools out there, if we are honest, the wheels come off if the head coach walks out the door and they better work to keep him? I am biased, but when a program struggles, everyone looks at the head coach when more than likely it is other issues or simply a lack of talented...

    Kevin Brown became the head coach in 96 when I started at Mason. Wonderful man , very good friend, and outstanding football coach. He has done a great job building that program. I have missed seeing him every October since coming to Mercer. I am thankful our paths crossed.

    Another thing that is tough to measure, it helps if the coach is a great fit at his school. Not all coaches fit as well at each school. Yes, some coaches are better than others. But, some coaches are more successful if they are a fit at their school. Coach Stonebreaker is a great example of this.... he is a very good coach, but is an exceptional fit at Casey County. They are really different when he is there. Saban, Arnsparger, Holtz,...

    When I got to Mason County, I was told if you just write "Coach" on the envelope with the address, "Maysville, KY", it would be delivered to Coach Feldhaus. I enjoyed the times we got to visit, usually at the end of the season at the H&W Show, hosted by Kenton Station Golf Course. He was always encouraging and willing to share his thoughts to make me a better coach, but also understand a little better how things work in Mason County & Maysville....

    Our injured player is fine and should be back soon. Thank you for the comments and checking on him. The Rebels have an outstanding football team. Our football team was much better last night than the team we put on the field against Taylor County. I am pleased that we have just finished the best two weeks of practice through out the entire season.... and some of our practice issues have been getting more of our guys healthy. I was pleased that...

    Both the Grant & Mason staffs are maximizing their kids and what they have. I was able to attend the game. Both teams played hard & were well-coached.
