2012 Kentucky High School Football Class 3A Playoff Preview

By theguru - Region 1 One school of thought in western Kentucky is that no one has a bigger home-field advantage than Fort Campbell, and it's one that could serve the Falcons well during the postseason. Fort Campbell obliterated district rival Paducah Tilghman 43-14 during the regular season and would get to host a potential rematch with the Tornado in the regional final. That is assuming that Tilghman survives the tough playoff road it forged for itself, which would include a 200-mile second-round trip to Monroe County. The Falcons, who won three consecutive Class 2A titles from 2007-09 and... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Class 1A Playoff Preview

By theguru - Region 1 The loss to Hazard in last year's state championship still stings for Mayfield, which has taken out its frustration on nine out of 10 opponents and looks to have the stuff to win its second state title in the last three seasons. Led by Jonathan Jackson, the storied program's all-time leading rusher and tackler, the Cardinals haven't just beaten nine consecutive opponents since a 42-28 opening-night loss to Class 5A heavyweight Warren Central — they've battered them. The Cardinals haven't played a cakewalk schedule, either. Five of their nine wins have come against ranked... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Class 6A Playoff Preview

By theguru - Trinity. So much for the suspense. The Shamrocks enter the postseason as perhaps the biggest favorite to win a state title in history. Not exactly the parity the KHSAA was looking for when the opted for six class football several years ago. The one team that could come within three touchdowns of them, St. Xavier, will be gone after round three, making the path to Trinity’s 22nd state title and seventh in nine years that much easier. Trinity should roll through George Rogers Clark in the first round and Manual in the second round before a return engagement with St X in the... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Class 5A Playoff Preview

By theguru - Region 1 Bowling Green is simply the second best team in the state behind nationally-ranked 6A powerhouse, Trinity. No one in 5A can beat Bowling Green. You can go ahead and mail the State Championship trophy to: 1801 Rockingham Lane. Now the other 5A schools may not have gotten the memo, so we’ll pretend as if the title is still up for grabs. Bowling Green (10-0) has racked up 409 points; pretty impressive. But, what is more impressive – and has led to their stellar record -- is that they have only allowed 82 points, with five shutouts in ten games. Aside from the Purples’... Read More →

2012 Kentucky High School Football Class 2A Playoff Preview

By theguru - Is this the year Owensboro Catholic finally gets their title? The Aces have been bridesmaids four times – the last in 2010 – but never the bride. This year, they finished the regular season as the only unbeaten in Class 2A but not with as much fanfare as in years’ past. The Aces have been getting the job done on defense, only allowing Union County to score more than two touchdowns in a game. However, one criticism of the Aces has been their schedule – only one non-district team, 6-4 Owensboro, posted a winning record. In addition, the Aces would have to play at the Region 2...

Ashland-Belfry series benefits both teams

By LRCW - ASHLAND — Football coaches Leon Hart of Ashland and Philip Haywood of Belfry share a strong affinity for opponents that will make their teams better down the road. That’s why the state-ranked Tomcats and Pirates are meeting for the fourth consecutive year, a series that Hart says Ashland wants to extend after the contract expires this season. “I think for both of us it’s a great non-district game,” Hart said. “All of it is working to get you better for the playoffs, and tough teams in your district.” Haywood agreed. “We’ve had some real competitive games,” Haywood said. “They’ve...

Thomas More Come From Behind Win

By Orion20 - Thomas More goes 70 yards little over a minute left in the game, with no time outs left for the win. Nice receptions and runs after the catch by Goose Cohorn and Ryan Winkler during the drive, with Winkler getting the touchdown with about 25 seconds left. Those two have excellent hands and both knew how to get yardage and get out of bounds to stop the clock. Read More →

The Reds' Embarrassment of Riches Problem

By HammerTime - The Reds' Embarrassment of Riches Problem - The Triangle Blog - Grantland The problem lies with the Reds' two resident OBP sieves. Cozart's hitting .245 with a .287 on-base percentage, Stubbs .221 with an identical .287 OBP. This would be a big enough problem if Baker buried his resident out-makers at the bottom of the lineup. It's even uglier when they're hitting 1-2 in the lineup. Together, Cozart and Stubbs have combined to eat up 1,009 plate appearances. Put another way, they've made 719 outs. And counting. How rare is this configuration on a winning team? Try this. According to... Read More →

The Wrong Side Absolutely Must Not Win

By Habib - The past several weeks have made one thing crystal-clear: Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins. No reasonably intelligent person can deny this. All you have to do is look at the way the Other Side has been running its campaign. Instead of focusing on the big issues that are important to the American People, it has fired a relentlessly negative barrage of distortions, misrepresentations and flat-out lies. ... Let's face it: The Other Side is held hostage by a radical, failed ideology. I have been doing some research on the Internet, and I have learned this... Read More →
