    Like I said, the numbers won't be exact, just trying to give an idea. South Warren would still have had to go through Christian County, a single opponent greater than any they faced in 2015. Owensboro would be a tossup to possibly still be in 3A, and Bowling Green has always had a knack for staying out of the top class. The point is if it was just that one game against Christian County, it would have been a better playoff than anything they...

    The last four years of the six class system, three teams won titles in 1A, three teams won titles in 2A, four teams won titles in 3A, and only 4A was truly completely top heavy, with only two teams winning titles. While I'm certain Highlands felt like an unstoppable machine back then, the reality is that they won five titles in one incredibly dominant six year span, winning a title four years before that run and four years after it. Sure,...

    There would be less bad teams in the playoffs, and consolidating the good teams into smaller groupings creates more of a grind for the favorites, creating more opportunities for upsets. How many champions have we had in the six class system that were literally untested because they were so far above everyone else? As in not even one close game. To use a local example, in 2015, South Warren won every game by 27 points or more in the playoffs. ...

    The "everybody gets a trophy" statement is more a commentary on all the teams making the playoffs rather than more teams winning state titles. If we're talking literally trophies, there are 16 more district champions, 16 more district runner-ups, 8 more region champions, 8 more region runner-ups, and so forth. But it's the playoff argument that most people latch onto. The principal of a winless team making the playoffs is particularly galling...

    Last week we talked about Wayne County taking it on the chin against Boyle County, leaving the door open for Collins to stake their claim to the #2 spot when they hosted Boyle County this week. The opportunity was ready-made for a comparison. The claim would be especially strong given the performance by 4A teams against out of class competition, particularly ranked competition. In all, through five weeks the top 10 teams in 4A are 1-9 when...

    Beats me. Central beat Fern Creek 29-0, and we know Fern Creek is good based on how they've played the likes of Butler and DeSales. Manual has gone out and beaten Ballard in addition to their own close losses to Fern Creek and Central. There's a degree of circular logic with Louisville football, but the eye tests seem to indicate a lot of close games between some pretty strong programs. I honestly believe Western could win every game for...

    That's really comparing apples and oranges because there are a lot of very good teams in college football. There really aren't that many really good teams in high school football and even less in 4A. The BluegrassPreps mindset is the expectation that a team would beat all the teams behind them and lose to the ones ahead of them in a given week. It always has been that way. We don't now, nor would we ever rank it purely based on records. ...

    What some need to realize is that 4A is a deeply, deeply flawed class. We all know Johnson Central is #1. We think Wayne County, Collins, and Rockcastle County are probably the best teams after that. Beyond that, to me, it's rearranging chairs on the Titanic. There are flies on everyone. Consider Franklin-Simpson. They are a 2-3 team that has been running clocked twice. Both of those were to teams that are in the top 4 of their classes,...

    Still a strong sign for Franklin. Meade absolutely destroyed Shelby County.

    This is exactly the type of game I expect on Thursday Night Football. Almost always unwatchable.

    After the bloodletting that was the third week in 4A football, it was nice to see the script flip last week for the top of our rankings. Whereas a mere three of the top ten teams won the week before, this past week seven of the top ten teams won, and at least the other three losses were to ranked opponents. Johnson Central has continued to look a little more vulnerable than expected, as for the third straight game they allowed 20+ points...

    The physical paper I rarely read anymore. I will still sometimes thumb through it on Sundays, but in general, I read the digital edition. That applies in many ways to almost anything I read anymore. I am far more likely to read an e-book than I would a physical copy. It just has to do with convenience.
