By Bac2369 - We are now half way through the season and it's time for district play to get started. It has been a very wild season to say the least so far with surprise teams making strides and teams losing their star players to season ending injuries. The Game of the Week in 1A features two teams who have gone through some great turmoil early in the season. District rivals Hazard Bulldogs and Pikeville Panthers have both been hit with the injury bug this season. Pikeville lost its star quarterback in Wyatt Battaile before the season started but word is he could be back late to give the Panthers an... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/24- Turning the Halfway Point

By ATLCat - ..And Then There Were 3 Entering the weekend five teams still held firm with flawless records in Class 2A: Danville, DeSales, Mayfield, Lexington Christian Academy, and surprising Todd County Central. Once the smoke cleared from this weekend's action two have since fell by the wayside. Most expected Todd County Central's streak to end sooner rather than later. The Rebels simply could not get enough firepower to hand with Hancock County as the Hornets bested Todd Central 28-8. It is still worth applauding what Todd Central has already accomplished and with three winnable games on their... Read More →

2A Game of the Week: 2A #6 Somerset at 1A #5 Raceland

By DevilMayCare - Challenging yourself with a difficult schedule year in and year out is a big part of the foundation for elevating bad programs to good, good programs to great, and great programs to champions. Beating up on cupcakes week after week will result in short term gratification, but often leads to postseason disappointment when you run into an opponent of equal or superior talent. The idea is to ensure that the team is as well prepared as possible for anything they might encounter during the rigors of a deep playoff run, even if it means taking some losses along the way. By that logic, Somerset... Read More →

The Swami's Class 2A Picks (9/21)

By ATLCat - 1. Danville vs. 3A Garrard County Last week in Louisville was almost a disaster, Now the Ads must right the ship against the boys from Lancaster. Though the lions have size, and their coat is gold. The Admirals have playmakers, and they are feeling mighty bold. The Ads keep this one safe, never really in doubt. Danville wins by 4 TD's, but not quite a rout. PREDICTION: DANVILLE 2. DeSales at 3A Lexington Catholic Read More →

1A Notebook 9/20 - Halftime Reviews

By Voice of Reason - In this week's notebook we will not only look at last week and ahead to Friday, we also will do a halftime review of our teams that have been ranked in the top ten during the first half of the season. Looking Back Last week our #1 Beechwood Tigers became the latest highly regarded team to get mowed down by the Covington Catholic Colonels. Losing 45-9 might cause doubts whether Beechwood should be #1, but when you consider Covington Catholic has beaten other teams just as good as Beechwood just as bad, then you have to say Covington Catholic is just that good this year. Beechwood held... Read More →

2A Midterm

By DevilMayCare - To the best of my recollection, I was pretty much a straight A student from my first day of school up through the midway point of my 4th grade school year. It was at that point that I received my first ever C on a report card. Mrs. Ratliff had rendered her verdict… young DMC didn't do math good. I was terror stricken at the idea of handing that wretched report card over to my mother. I just knew that I was a dead man walking. I took my sweet time walking home that day after exiting the school bus. After sneaking into my bedroom, I stared in disbelief at the blood red C before my eyes. A... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/19 - Let The Horses Run

By ATLCat - Longshot Lands in the Winner Circle: Let's be honest. You didn't see this coming. Christian Academy- Louisville traveled to Newport and most assumed the top ranked team in Class 2A would be able to take care of a Newport Central Catholic team that had been outscored 89-36 in their two previous games. Instead the Throroughbreds dominated the line of scrimmage, forced key turnovers, made the plays down the stretch, and shocked the Centurions 20-15. It was the first time CAL had tasted defeat to a 2A school, not named DeSales, since they opened the 2012 season with a loss to Lexington... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (9/19): Collins Misses Their Shot

By DragonFire - Last week we talked about Wayne County taking it on the chin against Boyle County, leaving the door open for Collins to stake their claim to the #2 spot when they hosted Boyle County this week. The opportunity was ready-made for a comparison. The claim would be especially strong given the performance by 4A teams against out of class competition, particularly ranked competition. In all, through five weeks the top 10 teams in 4A are 1-9 when matched against a top 10 team that week from another class. Ashland’s win over then-#6 Raceland (in 1A) stands as the sole victory. The... Read More →

Strength of Schedule Case Study - Ohio County vs. Henderson County

By Voice of Reason - We are at the point in the season when some teams have good records and are wondering why they aren't getting credit. Meanwhile, we have teams with 1 win who are considered a top 15, even a top 10, team in their class. There has been some discussion about this in the rankings threads this week. A quick glance at a 5-0 team versus a 1-4 team says the 5-0 team is going to crush them. But there is often more to the story. The big question we should always ask is who have these teams played? Who has the 5-0 team beaten and who has the 1-4 team lost to? I haven't looked closely up and down the... Read More →
