A Call to Cherish: Belfry Fans Last Chance To Witness Greatness

By ATLCat - “We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present.”– Thomas Edison The term "spoiled" is often over used and a bit harsh off the tongue. Connotations of the word bring forward temper tantrum prone toddlers and negative emotions associated with people who disregard value. As such, it is not fair to use the word "spoiled" when describing the Belfry fan base. The Pond Creek Nation remains one of the most devout fan bases in the State of Kentucky and often travel better than most any other school, their support does not waver. Yet, as... Read More →


3A Notebook: The Rankings Were Right

By gchs_uk9 - There has been a good deal of discussion this week regarding the correctness of polling. Fivethirtyeight.com gave Hillary Clinton a 71.4% chance at winning the presidency only to see Donald Trump win with a sizable number of electoral votes. Many have argued that proves polling untrustworthy, while also avoiding the fact that if there is a 71% chance something will happen, then there is a 29% chance that it won't. No matter your views on politics, one area where ranking and polling was 100% in the Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Rankings. With the playoff competitors winnowed to the final... Read More →


Class 2A Notebook 11/12- Now We Get Serious

By ATLCat - Region I In Review It takes more than one man to beat Mayfield, for Butler County this could never be more clear as for the second consecutive season Butler County saw their season end in lopsided fashion at the hands of the Cardinals. Rex Henderson's unbelievable career comes to a close, but the Cardinals move on. Murray is not used to losing seasons and tried their best to salvage a disappointing year with a First Round win over McLean County. The Tigers though could not parlay that into any further momentum as Owensboro Catholic held serve 47-13. Owensboro Catholic had fallen to Murray... Read More →


Class 5A Notebook (11/9/2016)

By JDEaston - In general the first week of the playoffs in Kentucky is relatively uneventful, this year was no exception in class 5A as all teams that were expected to win did just that. Pulaski County had a much closer game than expected, but survived a scare from Harlan County. Round two of the playoffs will be much different however, with several interesting matchups on hand. Region 1 This region has a handful of the best teams in the class and it showed in the opening round as the higher seeded teams all won their first round games in convincing fashion. The region one favorites outscored their... Read More →



1A Notebook - Playoffs Round 1 Crystal Ball, Crystal Clear

By Voice of Reason - The BGP crystal ball was crystal clear in its look at round 1 of the playoffs. In last week's playoff preview, not only were all games predicted accurately - the margin of victories and upsets predicted were on target as well. Let's look region by region at last week and then see if the crystal ball can work it's magic again this week. Region 1 There were no tough games to pick in this region. All first round games were expected to be lopsided wins and so they were. Region 1 favorite Russellville rolled through winless Caverna; #2 seed in the bracket Campbellsville had no problems with...

Class 2A Notebook 11/7- Familiar Faces, Different Places

By ATLCat - Region I Most expected 1 seeds Mayfield and OCath to roll and they did just that. Region 1 though was one of the better regions for potential 2 vs. 3 matchups. Butler County need a Herculean effort from their MVP Rex Henderson to out duel a very game Ballard Memorial squad. Henderson ran for 317 and passed for 146 more and accounted for 6 TD's in the Bears 54-28 victory. Murray was viewed as a slight underdog by some entering their match-up with a previous 7-3 McLean County squad. The Tigers have struggled on Defense all season, but have found an Offensive cohesion in recent weeks and... Read More →


A Totally Reasonable Playoff Proposal

By gchs_uk9 - A few weeks back in another thread I posted an idea for a new playoff proposal. Modeled after a version used by the state of Illinois, this plan is something of a hodge-podge of suggestions from various sources along with some new ideas not previously seen on BGP. This thread is designed to present the plan in what is hopefully a simple, easy to understand method. To start, there are three things that are paramount when attempting to understand the plan: 1. The idea of districts and regions as you have previously known them will no longer exist. Districts and regions will exist in a... Read More →


3A Notebook: Home is Where the Heart is in Round One

By gchs_uk9 - Week One of the postseason saw very little in the way of surprises as all but one home team picked up first round victories and only one game had a marginally surprising result. The second round slate gets a bit tougher with at least four games that could be won be either team, including two matchups of top ten teams. Bottom line, it should be an exciting week of 3A playoff football. Region I All four top seeds advanced to the second round, two with ease and two with at least some discomfort. #9 Elizabethtown coasted to a 49-0 win over Fort Campbell and will now prepare to host...

Bluegrasspreps' Class 6A Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION I Sometimes it just does not seem fair. Thanks to Cross-District assignments Region I sees District 6 join Western Kentucky's District 1 and no one is feeling the heartburn more than McCracken County. The Mustangs cruised to a District Title but now must draw the District of death featuring St. Xavier, Male, PRP, and DuPont Manual. All Top 10 teams in Class 6A. To add insult to injury even if McCracken survives the Rounds 1 & 2, it would mean a 3rd Round sojourn to Louisville. Don't bank on that as Male will end the Mustang's ride in the second week. Manual and St. Xavier should... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (11/1)

By Ram - Class 1A Three of the Top 4 teams in Class 1A closed out the regular season with ranked foes from higher classifications. Beechwood served notice that they will be a factor in the Championship picture by dominating Newport Central Catholic. Raceland succumbed to the power of the two-point conversion for the second straight week against 3A Russell, meanwhile Russellville battled valiantly before eventually falling to 4A Franklin-Simpson to remove them from the ranks of the undefeated. As the post-season begins the premier First Round matchups appear to be in Region III. Bracken County and... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 4A Playoff Preview

By DragonFire - Class 4A Region 1 Region 1 may be the most competitive among the top teams of any region in the class. Three teams in the top 5 hail from the region, including the defending state champion South Warren Spartans. Coming into the year, the general impression was that South Warren would simply reload and mow down everyone just as they had done the previous season. And they did reload, just not quite to the same level. The Spartans have put up a solid 7-3 record, but the cracks started to appear immediately, with a lackluster first half against an Apollo team that missed the playoffs,... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps' Class 1A Playoff Preview

By Voice of Reason - No class in the state may be more up for grabs than 1A. There are 5, perhaps even 6, teams that have a very legitimate argument that they can win this title. Here is how we see the playoff battle unfolding in 1A. Region 1 Russellville seized the opportunity presented last year with the move of Mayfield to 2A and took the Region 1 championship. Many of the key players from that team returned this year determined to take the next step and move on to a state championship game. It has been an impressive season for the Panthers. They marched through their schedule undefeated and virtually... Read More →
