    Some, including the Courier Journal have made a big deal out of the previous games and the fact that SK hasn't scored. I remember a long ago time when someone at Trinity put up a big sign in the Trinity cafeteria that listed the scores of the last four Trinity - Male games, all shutout Male wins, none close. It was followed by the line, "How bad do you want it." I still think it was the best motivational sign I ever saw. By the way, Trinity...

    I have seen a couple of games this year with the seven person crews. I thought they were well officiated with a lower number of flags. I think nearly all, (and likely all) officials try to do their best. I do think that sometimes when officials come in from another part of the state they sometimes struggle with the size and speed of the teams as well. Some of it may just be different styles in different parts of the state. I don't know...

    Not a lot of time spent thinking about this, but keep the existing system the same, but give the three and four seeds the option of dropping out of the playoffs and scheduling a "bowl" game against anyone they can schedule a game with. If their opponent drops out, the one or two seed gets a bye. That allows a good team from a strong district (say Butler this year) to pursue a championship and a really weak team (say Seneca this year) to...

    No. Revenue would be hurt. That is a good enough reason.

    I think that the following is pretty close to what was said. "Per KHSAA rules, the remainder of the game will be played with a running clock". I don't see a thing wrong with it. I also have no problem with announcing plans for ticket sales. Season ticket holders need to know how to get their seats for the following week. At that point in the game, if there was anyone in the stadium that didn't know that Trinity would be advancing to the...

    SK is a one loss team in the state quarter finals. They have won two games in the playoffs. Don't take them lightly.

    There have been a few comments on the Trinity secondary. It is up to the coaches and players to adapt to the way the game is being called. They did, but it took a while. I thought that the way the officials called the game in the secondary was strange. It looked to me that any contact initiated by the defense on the offense was defensive interference. It also looked like any amount of pushing off by the offense was let go. I repeat, it is...

    Just an observation, but I think that the bigger crown on grass fields is a bigger factor, especially for passing teams.

    It might well be, but a home game with a crowd of 7,000 generates $50,000 or $60,000 in revenue. Even if someone covers the cost of the trip, the lost revenue is big.

    And that is the problem. Whenever anything is as successful as Trinity football there is a natural desire to let that tail wag the dog. That can't ever happen. The focus has to be on the real mission of the school. There is nothing inherently wrong with travelling a long distance to play games, unless it starts to interfere with more important things. A schedule that necessitates athletes missing class is not a good idea. A schedule that...

    I'm very proud to be a Trinity graduate. In an earlier post you accused me of being old. Younger than some, older than most. That means that I have over fifty years of experience knowing what Trinity is about. It isn't football. Football is a means, not an end. It is about forming men of faith and men of character. It is about providing a world class education. It is about making what Trinity offers available to a student body that is...

    Ding, Ding, Ding! Now we have identified the agenda. I couldn't figure out why your opinion of the Trinity scheduling philosophy made you sound like someone whizzed in your Wheaties. Now I know. There is nothing wrong with the Trinity schedule. They play a number of strong regional teams and the district teams they need to play to qualify for the Kentucky playoffs. Games that would require missing school or overnight stays are not...

    I didn't leave Scott County (or anyone else ) out because they are not capable of winning. I just haven't seen them. Many of the teams in the field have no chance against Trinity on Trinity's worst day. There are several others that are capable of pulling the upset. I remember Dixie Heights in 2004 and Bishop David in 1991. I was there to see both. Both were huge and unexpected upsets that "everyone" said couldn't happen.

    I am going to disagree. I have seen several times in the past 18 years when X put a beatdown on Trinity during the regular season only to have Trinity reverse the result in the playoffs. From what I have read, both X and Ryle have improved a great deal since the early meetings with Trinity. Trinity is an obvious favorite, but don't believe all of the hype. This Trinity team still has trouble running the ball. They have room to improve and...

    I would like to thank the folks at Fern Creek for playing the game. Too many of their JCPS mates won't do it. The way to get better is to play better teams.

    By KHSAA rule, tomorrow is the last day for freshman or JV games. This is a special group of freshmen. My guess is that a large number were invited to practice with the varsity to give them an extra month of work. My guess is that several of them will get an opportunity to play large roles next year.

    I think it is mostly one person. Ignore them. The rest of are looking forward to the game.
