1A Notebook - Final Countdown

By Voice of Reason - It is here. It is hard to believe the regular season is almost over. The district games are in the books and final preparations for the playoffs are under way. It is interesting to see how coaches schedule this last game. Some coaches schedule a really tough opponent. Some coaches have a larger class school who is average at best. Some coaches stayed in class and scheduled a tough out of area 1A opponent. Here is the rundown for this final week. Top ranked Beechwood is one of those schools that scheduled a really tough opponent - 2A #7 and multi-time state champion Newport Central... Read More →

6A Notebook (Where are they now?)

By CoachBuckett - As we enter the last week of the season I thought we would take a look back at the beginning of the season to compare our preseason Top 10 to see where they are now. Are these 6A teams who we thought they were? Male Bulldogs entered the season as the number one team in class 6A. After two weeks they quickly dropped to number 2 not because of their performance but that others around them at the time had a couple of bigger wins. Week 4 rolled around and the Bulldogs quickly showed everyone why they are the number one team in Class 6A with a 29 point win over then number 1 ranked Trinity.... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook- Brackets Set... Bragging Right Weekend Awaits

By ATLCat - Weekend Rewind: By and large an uneventful weekend for the Class' Top 10 teams. The Top 7 Teams all failed to see an opponent that could hang within 5 TD's. The most important game was #8 Lloyd Memorial surviving a tough Covington Holy Cross 42-36 to clinch the 2 seed and a home playoff game. CHC is now ticketed to travel to Owen County in Round 1 and if they win, 2A Perennial Powerhouse NewCath awaits. Owen County earned their 2-seed in their own right by outlasting Gallatin County 8-6 in a Defensive stalemate. The win eliminates a potential 3-way tie and forces Gallatin to a 4... Read More →

Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 10/25/15

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2015 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 9 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week: Can you feel it? It’s the calm before the storm! This is the last week before we all go into Full Throttle Playoff Mode! Is it best to schedule a cupcake now after your district matchups? Or like Trinity a couple years ago in scheduling Archbishop Moeller the last game of the season? Most aren’t like T and I think a good blend in between is the ticket depending on where you are on the 1A to 6A grading scale. For example, I love the Paducah Tilghman vs Murray matchup as...

3A Notebook - Matchups, Champions, and Tiebreakers

By gchs_uk9 - Several years ago the KHSAA made the decision to adopt a scheduling grid for football. Instead of playing district games through the last Friday night of the regular season, the district schedule now ends one week earlier. I'm not exactly sure what the reasoning for this decision was, but it does provide three things for the season finale: interesting out-of-district matchups, nearly all districts with confirmed champions, and an opportunity for about 90% of the public to be confused regarding the KHSAA tiebreaker system. With this week being the final 3A Notebook for the regular season,... Read More →

Eastern Kentucky Power Rankings 10-25-15

By ATLCat - 10. Bell County (3A, 7-2)- Bobcats close out District play by crushing Jackson County... Harlan County should be a nice sharpening tool entering the playoffs 9. Pikeville (1A, 7-2)- Panthers finish off their District Title and has WKU dreams. The first ever matchup against 3A Pike Central should be a quality scrimmage. 8. Corbin (3A, 6-3)- Redhounds are peaking and now take on Regional rival Knox Central. Hounds look to be the favorite to reach the Semi's in 3A Region 4. 7. Southwestern (5A, 7-2)- Southwestern got ambushed and pushed around by their Big Brother. The road doesn't get... Read More →

Class 4A Football Notebook (10/20): The Week We've Waited For

By DragonFire - The week that was is not quite as exciting as the week to come, but there were a few big results to discuss before we get to what we’re really looking forward to. The biggest game of the week was undoubtedly #4 Spencer County at #6 Shelby County. Spencer County entered unbeaten at 8-0, and could have secured the district title with a win. Shelby County also controlled their destiny, needing a win in that game as well as the following week against Collins to secure the #1 seed, and it was they who exited the game still in control, gaining a 42-28 victory over the Bears. Shelby County was... Read More →

1A Notebook 10/20/15 - District Showdown Review

By Voice of Reason - We have reached the final week of the district play. There have been some interesting twists and turns and we have some big games this final week. Let's review 1A from a district review angle this week. District 1 As expected, this district comes down to the final week - #4 Russellville at Crittenden Co. A weak schedule has kept Crittenden Co. from getting into the top 10 in 1A, but if you look closely their schedule is just as strong as Russellville's. Most are expecting an easy win for Russellville in this one but I think it will be closer than most expect and Crittenden... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook: Finishing the Grind

By ATLCat - We will set up how the Districts look to be playing out further down, but first let's cover the headlines that led us to this point after another critical week of District vs. District crime Throughbreds Close Hard The jewel of this week was #7 Newport Central Catholic against #8 Lloyd Memorial and this game lived up to all the hype.

Newport Central Catholic has a lot of guys who have played in a lot of big... Read More →

Bluegrasspreps' Football Rankings (10/19)

By Ram - Beechwood remains the consensus #1 team in 1A this week, followed by Paintsville and Pikeville. Raceland’s close loss to Fairview drops the Rams from #4 last week to #7, and it doesn’t get any easier for them as they take on #2 Paintsville this week. Russellville and Paris each move up one spot. Fairview moves up to #6 this week after Campbellsville lost to Bethlehem last week and drops out of the top 10. Holy Cross (Louisville) enters this week at #10. Class 2A rankings remain unchanged this week, with Mayfield continuing to hold the #1 spot. The only shake up is Shelby Valley moving up... Read More →
