    Bardstown has pulled the All A Region champ and overall 5th Region champ daily double three different times.

    The 12th Region only truly has three since Monticello consolidated a few years back. Since then, Washington Co. has been moved over to the 12th Region for the purposes of All A Classic play.

    I've spent some time in the 14th Region area through my travels in this game, and I'm betting that the whole concept of "new blood in the game" is what bothers a lot of folks as much as anything. They're OK with the Perry Centrals of their world doing their thing because that's how it's always been, but when talented, monochromatic teams of a shade they're not used to from a school they're not used to show up, it's an issue. Hazard tends to get...

    So, it's gonna be Bart Bruner if the traditional X folks have their way, and Stefan LeFors if the folks who want to go "in a new direction offensively" have their way. Am I right on this? I don't know Mike Glaser very well, but I feel like I know who he's backing.

    I'd take them a lot more seriously if they complained more about the year-in and year-out stuff that goes on in their region. But since it's traditional powers doing it, everybody shuts up. Also, you quoted me before I added a tag-on to the end of my post, that may explain other things about the Cordia outrage. :lol2:

    I get that, but what is the threshold for outrage? Some schools have 2-3 every year. It only became a big deal because Cordia had so many at once and it upset the longstanding power balance in the 14th. Why is it OK for a Perry Central to have some, and not someone else? Would people complain more about the traditional powers in the 14th if that yearly number reached 4? It surely wouldn't be because of other, more ethnic reasons, would it? :D

    Jim Schue replied to a thread Look Ahead in BGP Break Room
    I'm really hoping this rain we're supposed to get either Sunday or Monday holds off long enough for the snow-melt to have time to sink into the ground. There's a lot of standing water in the low-lying areas of Nelson Co. that could quickly turn into flooding along the Rolling Fork River flatlands.

    I've been told the bar I work at occasionally on the side will have it before others in town, and a full two weeks before you can buy a 12-pack anywhere in town. Now I won't have to tell that same sad story anymore to my out-of-state tourist customers who constantly ask for it.

    That's an easy bash on Cordia that folks in the 14th Region love to make, but they never seem to complain about the larger schools in the region that often take in a lot of transfers, simply because those larger schools have a tradition of success that Cordia never had until the past decade. That's Cordia's biggest sin is that they never were any good until recently, and that caught people's eye. And they had 6-7-8-9-10 transfers, whereas...

    For the record, and it has been mentioned here before, when the All A Classic started as a statewide tournament, it lined up with what was then Class 1A in football. So if you guys want to get hung up on the name of the tournament, blame the KHSAA for splitting their football classes. The tournament organizers shouldn't have to change the name just because the KHSAA changed its classifications. But I do hate when schools participating in it...

    If Ky ever goes to classifications in basketball, the KHSAA will take a bath financially and it will quickly move out of Rupp Arena because of all the empty seats.

    Jim Schue replied to a thread Negative People in BGP Break Room
    I've often been accused of being "negative," including by a few on this board. However, I think that's a misnomer. I'm a realist, and I'm honest, and I call it as I see it. I smile and say hi to everyone I can, and love to engage in pleasant conversation. If someone asks me my opinion, I provide it, with honesty.

    I'm looking at the list of schools this tournament is targeting, and it is interesting to say the least. I especially took note of this one, because it's where I am: Region Five – Bardstown, Thomas Nelson, Hart County, Elizabethtown, LaRue County, Adair County, Taylor County, Nelson County, John Hardin, Marion County Bardstown is back in All A Classic competition this year, as consolidations have dropped them into the bottom 125 in...

    For those talking about how good an OC Haley is, I'll just leave this here for you to examine: Todd Haley Record, Statistics, and Category Ranks | Pro-Football-Reference.com It's a pretty mixed bag, and it seems pretty clear that players like Roethlisberger, Brown and Bell have flattered him in recent years.

    I know, right? Doesn't happen often. I just find the band to be overly pretentious and overly melodramatic. Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll stack them on the same night as other acts I have no interest in, and I can stay home that day.

    I also recall that All A Classic when the ice bomb hit across the state, and Bardstown ended up playing Shelby Valley in front of a mostly empty gym on a Sunday. I had to watch the Steelers win the Super Bowl at some crummy hotel in Richmond (not that this was a bad thing) because there was no way I was trying to drive home on the ice, since I couldn't make it back to Bardstown in time and I wasn't gonna get loaded at Hooters and try to figure...

    Certain things need to be played. You rarely see any college games cancelled unless it's a snow/icemageddon. For something like the LIT, take extra caution, but play it, even if it's in front of an empty gym like when Stone Cold and The Rock faced off in an empty arena at halftime of that one Super Bowl.

    I don't get the hang-up about playing games on Thursdays or Saturdays. Would this be as big a deal if it wasn't for that book that got turned into a movie then a TV series? And don't the players understand that most HS field lights are horrible, so it makes it even harder for their local reporters to get decent pics of them? Play at daytime on Saturday afternoon and you can actually see the kids' faces through the helmets.
