It's a "great cross county" matchup in week one for Scott County and Great Crossings. A lot is expected from Scott County after moving to 5A from 6A, can they meet the expectations? Or, is there a new school in town ready to make a name for themselves? Who wins the battle of Scott County?

With a drop in Class, the Cardinals flew from the Big Three.

A bright future is what they now see.

The County is split and a rivalry blossoms out of the gate.

But let's be fair, the Crossing won't be so Great.

Seems like when a school splits, the allure of the "new school" draws a lot of the top athletes. In Shelby County, Collins topped the Shelby County Rockets when the Titans first got started....in Oldham County, South Oldham won the first meeting between the Dragons and Oldham County...you see this phenomena a lot.

 

What happened here? Didn't necessarily expect Great Crossings to win the game, but didn't they get any of the better athletes? Nobody seems to expect much of a game...

The main difference between this scenario and those two scenarios is that Scott county is coming off a season in which they went to the state championship game, and they’ve had an undefeated state champion season earlier this decade, they’ve been a consistent threat to reach week four of the playoffs for the better part of the last 10 years. They keep that same coach and they probably don’t see a reason to leave if they’ve already got a good system going on. Shelby County and Oldham County, while they were both good programs at the time of their splits, weren’t quite in the same echelon as Scott County is right now.

 

Granted, both Shelby County and Oldham County have rebounded and are back to their winning ways; I just don’t think Scott County is going to stop rolling given what they’ve been able to accomplish under Coach McKee.

King of the 859 with a running clock early.

 

I think the Shelby and Oldham splits truly split the county and robbed the existing schools of some talent. Mckee has too good of a program to lose all of his studs. GC needs 3-4 years to compete IMO.
