That's time I'll never get back.  I kept watching thinking something would have to come out of this meeting. As it stands, I'm not sure what the meeting was about, or what the next steps are going to be.

All things considered that meeting was nothing but a waste of time.

I believe that meeting was really about everyone getting it on record they are against this so they are covered and free of any responsibility or accountability.

Like everybody, I’ll be interested in what’s in this letter to be sent.

Right, who is going to sort through all that and come up with any consensus.  They mostly had questions other than one or two of them that preached to us.  Waste of money.  Hopefully the letter will be public record.

Should that have taken almost 4 hours?

No, I see it as a sign of incompetence.

Any mention, discussion, and media regarding politics or political figures is expressly prohibited on BluegrassPreps. This includes, but is not limited to the mention or names of any elected or publicly appointed officials, both domestic and foreign, by name, title, or by the offices held (e.g. - president, governor, chancellor, mayor, minister, senator, congressman, commissioner, attorney general, county clerk, magistrate, Beshear, Clinton, Lincoln, Merkel, Obama, Putin, Reagan, Roosevelt, Trudeau, Trump, etc). Any direct references or inferences to political terminology and activities, (e.g. - government, Democrat, Republican, GOP, conservative, liberal, campaign, lobby, legislature, filibuster, caucus, etc) and anything else deemed political in nature by the BGP staff is also prohibited from the site. Likewise, this also includes 3rd party links to articles that are political in name or in nature. Additionally, the use of names/nicknames deemed by the BGP staff as references to political figures (e.g. - Andy, Donald, Tricky Dick, Slick Willy) will not be permitted on BluegrassPreps.

Keeping in mind BGP's core purpose as a sports-discussion community, discussion of the the managing bodies specifically serving over high school, college, amateur, and professional sports leagues (KHSAA, NCAA, IOC, MLB, MLS, NBA, NFL et al), along with the officers, officials and the titles held by the individuals within those organizations is permitted on BGP. Similarly, high school and college/university administrators and officials, when discussed in a strictly non-political manner, are all permissible on BGP.

I believe most of those board members talked in code.  None of them want to be the one to say shut it down.  Frankly, Commissioner Tackett answered every question and had to explain everything to them.  I don't see how that group is in any informed position to request the KHSAA Board of Control to do anything. 

With all that said it was mostly a bunch of general blah blah blah so I don't believe any of the Board of Control members should or would be very compelled to act based on anything that took place today.  

The BOE never had the legal authority to shut it down or "overrule" the KHSAA unless they revoked KHSAA's charter or enacted emergency reg. What they did today was all they could legally do. Chad Collins, KHSAA general counsel, effective communicating that. Tackett, another stellar job.

The BOC vote was 16-2. Don't see that changing drastically without major repurcussions and loss of face. Just my .02.

I have suspended four members in the last 24 hours for violating the No Politics part of our Terms of Service in this thread. 

Maybe some of you should read the Terms of Service.

Send your love and care to KHSAA and Mr. Tackett if you want want high contact sports in the fall.  After developing three very reasonable approaches, they are now back on the hot seat.

If it was up to this board they would push back/cancel sports so I think that would leave the private schools out in the cold too with no sanctioning body. 

If I were a private school, would be very tempting to go on their own and play a regional or national schedule. Many of their students are there for athletics. They need to play athletics to survive as a school, hold on to students to pay the bills. 

 And, if they can draw the best kids from the public schools in the area, could play with most any program in the nation. Could take their football program and school to a whole other level. 

Crises reveal leadership. The cream rises to the top. The schools and programs that handle this the best will go to an entirely new level. Those that do not, will struggle for some time to come. 

Personally, I'm just fighting like crazy to make sure that we are working our tails off at Mercer County and doing all we can do to make our program the best it can be, during this time and in the future. 

Things are so up and down right now... mentally taxing... can wear you down. We're just trying to focus on our kids each day. One thing about it... sure do appreciate a day of football practice much more than I use to.

Want to brag on our guys... we practiced all week, 7 am - 9 am... ZERO unexcused absences. Next week we are 6 am - 8 am. Guys have to arrive by 5:45 am. If we can do that again, will be very pleased. 

Wishing everyone a "COVID news free weekend!" 😀
