Bluegrassprep's Football Rankings (9/12)

By Ram - The Class 1A has taken shape and the majority of the names are familiar. You will see little movement in the Top 5 after all the teams held serve this week with victories. The back half of the Top 5 is a different story all together and has been a revolving door of teams. Hazard still remains at the #6 spot despite a loss, while both Holy Cross and Fairview hold on to the Top 10 despite also tasting defeat. This week expect those Top 5 teams to be put to the test with Beechwood, Raceland, and Pikeville drawing very difficult opponents. Class 1A 1. Russellville at 2A Todd County Central... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/12- Thoughts Following "Seperation Friday"

By ATLCat - It is no secret at this point that Class 2A appears to be one of the State's Strongest classifications pound per pound this season. The early season success of the class playing up against larger class schools has been well documented and as Non-District play begins to wear down we continue to see the prowess of the class shine through. This past week though finally began to give us clarity in terms of how the pecking order of this class appears. The Champs Look Like the Champs For all of Class 2A's successes on the early season "playing up" the one thing that they had not been able to... Read More →

BluegrassPreps - Western Kentucky Power Ranking - 09/11/16

By Purple88 - BluegrassPreps 2016 Western Kentucky Power Rankings – Week 3 Edition Concerning the top story line for this week, it is that time in the season where I admit I am pretty dog-gone long-winded on these rankings and I realize folks have very busy lives and don’t have time every week to get through all the items listed in this thread, so we’ll audible formations into a “Popcorn N Coke Version” and “Meat & Potato’s Version” so you can get what you want and move on in the time available to you. Popcorn N Coke Top 10 Version – Week 3: 1. Bowling Green 5A (4-0): Win 47-0 vs 5A Owensboro... Read More →

3A Notebook: Belfry, Corbin Take Show on the Road with Splendid Results

By gchs_uk9 - Belfry and Corbin Get Resounding Road Wins over Ranked Opponents In a week that saw seven of Bluegrasspreps' Top Ten 3A schools play on the road, Belfry and Corbin, ranked first and second respectively in class, picked up the biggest wins. Belfry, winners of twelve straight dating to last season, went to perennial northern Kentucky and Class 2A powerhouse Newport Central Catholic and won 41-8. As might be expected after a nearly four hour bus ride, the Pirates were slowed somewhat out of the gate and only led 14-0 at halftime. The second half, though, started with a kickoff return for a...

1A Notebook 9/5 - Deja Vu?

By Voice of Reason - The top ranked Pikeville Panthers are hoping history repeats itself. After being upset by their rival, #5 ranked Paintsville Tigers 40-28, Pikeville wants to see the results flipped in the playoffs as they have been the previous two years. In 2014, Pikeville won the regular season game but was defeated in the playoffs by Paintsville. In 2015, Paintsville won the regular season matchup but lost in the playoffs. With this regular season defeat, Pikeville would sure like to see the same pattern happen and the regular season loser get revenge in the playoffs. In this 2016 regular season... Read More →

Who wants Two?

By JDEaston - If there was any doubt, Bowling Green solidified themselves as the team to beat with a convincing win over St. Xavier. The real question is who is #2? Fern Creek, Christian County and Owensboro have all had their chance to prove that they are the second best team in the class. Owensboro being the most recent team to falter after receiving the #2 ranking, lost to rival Owensboro Catholic, which to be honest was a bit of a shocker. Christian County has worked their way back into the top spot for other teams not named Bowling Green for the time being, but Covington Catholic and Greenwood are... Read More →

Lessons from Labor Day football practice

By ChiefSmoke - Friday night before our game with Anderson County got started, Todd Thompson, a former HS teammate, came by to say hello. It was great to see him and I appreciated him making the effort. It got me to thinking about Labor Days from the past and why football is a great game. Labor Day in 1981, Coach French rolls in just in time for practice, pulling his boat behind his truck. Our starting QB is Todd and he has hurt his ankle and unable to practice. As the backup, I get snaps with the first team offense. That night, we practiced full gear in a driving rain storm. My football pants are... Read More →

Bluegrassprep's Football Rankings (9/5)

By Ram - It may not have the pomp and circumstance of when a new pope is selected, but on Friday night in Class 1A the Defending Champs were demoted in convincing fashion by the Paintsville Tigers. Russellville edges into the cat bird seat, but it is not without debate, as the Panthers needed all 48 minutes to survive 2A Butler County in a shootout. Beechwood secured a hard fought win over Somerset to assume the ongoing Runner-Up role and the aforementioned Paintsville Tigers are quickly making their rush up the rankings at the third spot. Fresh on the heels of defeat there will be no rest for... Read More →

Class 4A Notebook (9/5): THE Upset

By DragonFire - It had been almost three years since South Warren had suffered a regular season loss. On October 4th, 2013, South Warren traveled to Daviess County with a perfect 6-0 record. In a stunning turn, a team that would not fail to score at least 35 points in 10 of its first 12 games posted a mere three points against a Daviess County team they were expected to dominate. The 8-3 loss was their only blemish of the regular season, and the only regular season loss they had taken from October 4th, 2012 until last week. Until last week. The defending state champion South Warren Spartans entered... Read More →

Class 2A Notebook 9/5- Measuring Stick Friday

By ATLCat - On a Serious Roll As eluded to in last week's Notebook, Class 2A had another chance to make a statement in Week 2 and did not disappoint. Mayfield, CAL, Owensboro Catholic, and Danville all collected statement wins against highly ranked teams from higher classifications. Meanwhile Newport Central Catholic and Butler County took losses to favorited foes, but did so in the tightest of fashion. The lone disappointing Top 10 team was DeSales who fell to 6A Ballard, but to call a 2A team losing to a stout 6A team as a "disappointment" is really stretching it and a testament to the level this...
