  1. 1. Who will win?



Recommended Posts

Well, this is it. The top 2 teams in the region, one of the most heated rivalries in the Bluegrass, meeting in the regional tournament. CovCath comes in on fire and the "favorite", but Highlands won the previous match up in January and has been picking up steam as well. I figured that I would add a poll to see the results by the numbers.

Im affraid to make a prediction. This should be a great game and making it even better is that its the biggest rivalry in the region and one of the biggest in the state. I will be there early and can't imagine the line outside Ryle to just get in the gym. Good Luck to the Colonels, take this game. You deserve it.

I'll take the Colonels by 12.

Colonels a more talented and deeper team.

:laugh:

 

What is funny is during a Cov Cath football playoff game the Covcath radio network was interviewing Mike Listerman and I sent an email question about the HHS/Cov Cath basketball matchup this upcoming season and he played it off like it wasnt really a rivalry in basketball and that HHS plays footketball. Its funny how now we look at who is in the semis and how everyone is talking about the rivalry.

I don't quite understand the fascination with whether or not this is 'officialy' defined as a rivalry. Both programs acknowledge the fact that the two of them compete regularly in various sports for key wins; both schools respect each other's long histories of quality teams and success. It is a wonderful, healthy example of two schools who work very hard to develop quality kids and quality academics and quality athletic teams. If a rivalry is defined as having the elements of contempt or hatred...this is not! If is defined as a having a burning desire to perform well and win...this certainly is. Listerman's comments, I assure you, were not deeply held thoughts or implications of disrespect or indifference. He talks a lot! He gyrates and smiles and giggles...a lot. He probably thought it was funny....he has deep roots to both schools and I know he holds HHS in very high esteem. ...and...he understands that HHS plays very good basketball...Good Luck Birds...Let's cheer hard, support all the kids, and enjoy a night that only those of us lucky enough to live Kentucky have the opportunity to experience.

That is a very nice and well stated post. I know some CovCath fans that can't stand Highlands and I know some Highlands fans that can't stand CovCath, and for the life of me, I don't understand them. Both schools are actually very similar if you take away the all boys situation at CovCath. They are both very committed and very successful in academics and athletics. Sure I like beating them and they like beating us, but when we do lose to them, I can at least take a tiny bit of solace knowing that we got beat by one of the premier schools in the state and I have to think they feel the same way about us when we win.

 

That having been said, Go Birds-beat their brains out!

 

 

Just kidding about the brains stuff.

I think it would be great to start a basketball rivalry in basketball between the two schools. I dont think we can say a football rivalry really exist anymore. From a success stanpoint Highlands has dominated CC on the gridiron for several years.

I agree with you if you only look at the win loss record (and yes I know that's primarily all that matters), but most of those games were very close ones that could have gone either way. And as someone pretty close to Highlands football program, I can assure you that the coaches, players, parents and strong fans of Highlands consider the football programs to be very strong rivals of one another.
