Adjusting Priorities - Head Football Coach

By ChiefSmoke - Over 20 years ago at a clinic, Sam Harp, former Danvlle HS coach with seven state titles, shared a master list of what a coach needs to do, broken down by the months of the year. That list has been a big help, but when I took the job at Mercer County in April, I became overwhelmed with everything I was NOT getting done. This past Thursday, I woke up at 4 am and just started working to try to get a handle on what needs to get done. The four hour round trip, teaching school in Maysville, and doing spring practice in Harrodsburg, is making it tough to complete every task. It is very important... Read More →

Mother Teresa To Be Elevated To Catholic Saint In September 2016

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - Archbishop Fisichella, who is the head of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for the Promotion of New Evangelization (a relatively new office of the Roman Curia established to renew the effort of spreading the message of the Roman Catholic Church), spoke about the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta this past Tuesday in an interview with Catholic News Agency. Initial plans point for Mother Teresa to be canonized on September 4, 2016, although a Vatican spokesperson clarified today that all plans at this point are hypothetical. Mother Teresa was born Agnes Bojaxhiu in 1910 in the... Read More →

Transition: When one of yours takes over the program

By ChiefSmoke - On April 2nd a tough transition began to take place. I resigned as the head football coach at Mason County HS after 19 great years. I am returning to be the head football coach at Mercer County Senior HS in Harrodsburg, KY, my hometown. There have been some emotional times. Great joy and memories from relationships and accomplisments that have stretched over 19 years. The joy of returning to your hometown to play a role in building a great program for the kids that are now in the shoes you filled 35 years ago. The sadness as you face separation from kids, coaches, and a community that has... Read More →

Grant County Football Coach Kevin Siple on bullying

By theguru - Dear Colleagues, Let me first apologize for the long email. But, I have had something on my heart for many years. Here goes. As a long time teacher/coach, I have been thinking for several years about ways that we can impact our young people and our school community in the area of how kids are being treated in our hallways. Just like every school building in the country, we have kids at Grant County who get on the bus in the morning, go through their entire school day, get on the bus to go home, and do not experience one positive comment, smile, greeting, etc directed their way. Not... Read More →

What would the Owensboro Red Devils record be if they played in the WNBA?

By PurplePride92 - What would the Owensboro Red Devils record be if they played in the WNBA? Could they beat a WNBA team? Could they have a successful season in the WNBA? Would Justin Miller be stopped by any woman in the league? Can Aric Holman handle Britney Griner? Can Jacoby Harris put the clamps on Diana Taurasi? Taurasi is actually taller than Harris so she already has the edge in that matchup. Would Darion Morrow and Dylan Sanford be as effective against the WNBA as they were all season? Would Airius Phillips have a field day as the Sixth Man against WNBA? All great questions. Who knows the answers? ... Read More →

Hey Ump! Call it like you see it

By theguru - By Keith Sherman I have a few things to say as I get ready to start another season of umpiring baseball. First, as an umpire, I'm a volunteer, that means I'm giving up time with my family to be out there and I call anywhere from one to six games in a day. Yes, I do receive some compensation for my efforts and in exchange for that I hustle on every play to be in the right spot to make the call. Yes, despite my best efforts I will make a mistake occasionally. Yes, I read the rule book. In fact, I read it before the season starts and I go back during the season to re-read it, even after a...

I'm Starting To Question The Wisdom Of AAU & The Transfer Culture...

By JokersWild24 - Hey everyone, you may know me as Joker, the guy who loved seeing transfers and is all for the free-for-all that often comes with it. But something weird happened last week, and I began changing my mind, or at least started having some doubt creep in. It's a weird feeling, and the inspiration came from an unlikely source. As lots of you know, I'm an Eastern Kentucky kid who left behind the sweltering gyms of the 13th for the more spacious and talent-filled gyms of the 11th while going to UK. From there, my next stop was San Antonio, Texas. Here, tourism is done right and I'd imagine that... Read More →

My sixteen 2015 Sweet 16 Thoughts/Reflections

By PurplePride92 - I had a great time at the Sweet 16 this year and figured I'd share 16 thoughts/reflections I had from this year's Sweet 16. I attended every game and enjoyed every second of it. Here goes: 16. I have had multiple discussions and I wouldn't change a thing about the postseason of high school basketball in our state of Kentucky. The Sweet 16 semifinals had two district champs(Covington Catholic, Bowling Green) and two district runner-ups(Owensboro, Boyle County). The Sweet 16 Champion was a district runner-up. Owensboro. Don't. Change. A. Thing. 15. The sense of pride felt as a... Read More →

Sweet Sixteen Preview: Doss Dragons

By GoHardITP - DOSS DRAGONS PREVIEW Head Coach: Tony Williams Region: 6th District: 22nd Doss and PRP were the two pre-season favorites to win the 6th regional title and they opened their seasons by playing each other. Doss led that game for the most part, but did have to withstand a last minute rally to win by one. From that game forward, Doss has always shown they are the team to beat from the 6th region and been the likely favorite to play in the State Tournament. The Dejuanta Weaver-led Dragons beat every team in the region that they played. Here’s How They Got To The Sweet 16: Read More →

Sweet 16 Preview: Covington Catholic Colonels

By Walter - After winning the 9th region and state championship last season, the Colonels are back at Rupp once again to defend that state championship as the first team to win back to back 9th region titles since Holmes accomplished the feat by winning three straight from 2007 to 2009. The Colonels almost didn't make it past the first round of the region tournament as they were a made free throw away with 2 seconds left from being eliminated by a scrappy Newport bunch. Covcath righted the ship and pulled away in overtime for a 57-49 win. In the semi finals of the region tournament, the Colonels once... Read More →
