Mercer might be headed toward its best season since 'that' season

By thegeneral - The last time folks outside of central Kentucky paid much attention to Mercer County was in 2006, when it made off with the Class AA championship in 2006. It’s time to take notice of the Titans again. This Mercer team isn’t yet being considered a championship contender, but it is doing things it hasn’t done since that special season seven years ago — and even longer, in at least one case. To put it simply, the Titans are winning. They have won their first three games out of the gate, giving them their best start since 2006, when they went 15-0. And they are on track for a second...

You can often read debates about this team is great and is better then all other teams because............ We all know the great teams, we all know their accomplishments and accolades.

By CoachBuckett - What makes a team your rival? As I think about all the great rival games in high school football across the state I wonder what really makes that game a rivalry. There are games such as Trinity and Saint Xavier or Male and Manual. Also there are rivals like Mayfield and Paducah Tilghman that have been going on for a 100 years. Everyone will argue what the best rival game in the state. I am not here to debate who is the best. Because the one thing I have learned is every rivalry is important. I am more focused on what makes two teams a rival? Is what makes a good rival game based on... Read More →

Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (9-10-13)

By DragonFire - Inside South-Central Kentucky Football (9-10-13) -You may not have heard (it’s been REAL hush-hush) but Bowling Green (2-0) has a pretty good team. They continued their drive for another undefeated season with a third straight victory over St. X, 39-25, in their 32nd straight win overall. With that hurdle cleared, the only uncertainties that remain are their games against two teams from Tennessee. We already know they will defeat every Kentucky team they play. Good chance they’d defeat every team in Kentucky this year if they were to go head to head…. -South Warren (3-0) is also... Read More →

Mayfield Cardinals Insider, Week 4

By Toothpick - As week #4 rolls around, the 3-0 Mayfield Cardinals find themselves in familiar territory, ranked atop the state in the BGP polls and have even earned a little love from Dave Cantrell’s little smart pill machine rolling in at #19 in the entire state despite Cantrell’ machine having the Cardinals incorrectly at 2-1, an apparent error his little machine got from an incorrect score posting Saturday that had Tilghman as the winner of the 100TH tilt between Mayfield and Tilghman.

Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Three

By EyeOfTheTiger - Week Two Recap A promising start took an ugly turn for the Tigers varsity in last week's game versus the Dixie Heights Colonels. Beechwood jumped out to a 13-0 lead and it looked easy. Then the Colonels decided to go to the old school Woody Hayes 3 yards and a cloud of dust offense. Except it was more like 10 yards and another first down on run after run. The Tigers never found a way to stop the Colonel running game and the end result was a 41-20 loss. The Beechwood JV got a measure of revenge as they defeated the Colonels 21-6. The passing connection of QB Grant Plageman to WR Clay... Read More →

Saint Xavier Insider- week three

By AvidTiger - This was a tough pill for me to swallow but I have to swallow it. I'm not so much upset that we lost but more so how we lost. I don't know why I expected anything different in the third week, but it was the same song just the third verse. Poor Qb play, poor third down defense, and an over emphasis on passing the ball. Though there were new lyrics in this verse .poor tackling. The rumblings in the stands and from fans I've talked to are not positive; Questions about why X didn't run the ball more? You have to wonder about Browning and how would Glaser have done with this talented team? ... Read More →

By Bluegrasscard - Bluegrass Teams Update - Week 3 Who let the Dogs out? Dunbar is one states largest schools in enrollment and is home to a lot of Fayette County top athletes. But with constant coaching changes the program has struggled to find stable footing. In January Dunbar hired Paul Rains and Rains seems to have the Dunbar faithful feeling they have been let out of the dog pound.
