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...

By Bert - Thanks to our Sponsor WBKI TV Louisville The CW. Get in the game with Game On WBKI Saturdays @ 8p. Tv station: WBKI TV Twitter: @ItsGame_On 58941 1. Trinity (10-0) – Trinity finished the regular season with a perfect record and enters the playoffs as the 6A favorite so will rightly retain the number 1 rank. Next week is Ohio Co. 2. St. Xavier (7-3) – Louisville St. X received a reminder of why Southern Ohio football is held in such regard after taking a 28-3 loss. Due to the loss being from a national powerhouse, X will retain the #2 position. Next week is Muhlenberg Co. 3. –... Read More →

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 →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 2A Playoff Preview

By ATLCat - REGION I It is only fitting that when you begin to preview the teams in Class 2A moving from West to East, the top of the bracket begins with District 1 Champion Mayfield as the very first team on the bracket. The Cardinals have grown accustomed to being on top and as they begin their Class 2A Title Defense, they enter as the favorite. Mayfield has put the finishing touches on a 10-0 season and should hold court at home the first two rounds with limited resistance. The law firm of Bright, Arnett, & Lumson has lit up scoreboards all season and will continue their path of destruction... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 5A Playoff Preview

By JDEaston - Region 1 This is by far the toughest region in class 5A top to bottom, with four of the class 5A top five teams residing within the region. That said, there is still a clear cut favorite to win the region. Bowling Green is simply a machine, posting a 10-0 regular season record, including a 5-0 record versus region one teams. As impressive as that is, the Purples left no doubt about who the best team in the region is by putting a running clock on all of their region one opponents. The Purples ultimately outscored their region one foes 250-22, which is a mind blowing stat considering three... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Class 3A Playoff Preview

By Ram - REGION I Class 3A - Region I has a 2016 bracket almost identical to the one from 2015 and if things go as predicted it will have the same end result. While this season hasn't produced the quality of teams as last season, there are still four potential challengers for the region crown. Caldwell County (6-4) has spent much of the season ranked near the top of the class and are the District 1 champions, although the Tigers struggled to win against superior competition (falling to Christian County, Franklin-Simpson, North Hardin, and Mayfield). Expect an easy first round victory over Hart... Read More →
