KHSAA shuts down KY High School Football Playoffs until Further Notice - Playoff Brackets Posted 11-13-20

Recommended Posts

The KHSAA notified member schools this morning that the start of the football playoffs will be delayed one week in an effort to provide schools and school systems time to review their situations and work with their health departments to determine the best course of action. The first round of the playoffs will now take place the weekend of Nov. 19-21 with no additional planned changes in the playoff structure at this point in time.

For what reason.

Not sure. Maybe since some teams are in quarantine but next week maybe new teams in quarantine.

Curious if there’s a UK connection here. State finals are supposed to be weekend of December 12. UK season supposed to end December 5. Could the SEC be holding an extra week open at the end to make up missed games, which could then potentially tie up Kroger Field on December 12? Just thinking out loud - no idea if that’s true.

These days anything is possible.

As a result of the postseason delay, the following guidelines will be in place for member schools:

  • The first round will begin with the weekend of November 19-20-21.
  • A reminder that teams are permitted to schedule contests this season after elimination (or withdrawal) HOWEVER THERE IS A MORATORIUM ON HOLDING GAMES THE WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER 11/12-13-14. NO CONTESTS SHOULD BE SCHEDULED THIS WEEK.
  • The bracket builder for 2020 is again listed online at https://bit.ly/37Tg5SObut should be considered a draft at this point due to withdrawals.
  • Teams may voluntarily withdraw from the playoffs without penalty using the FB144 form.
  • If a seeded team withdraws and other district teams remain in the alignment, those teams not qualifying from earlier from within that district will be given an opportunity to enter the bracket.
  • If there are withdrawals during the process, the bracket pod (district) will be re-seeded up to a point, after which the withdrawal will simply create a bye. We need to give schools at least a couple of days to sort out current situations. The status of the statistics around the virus will drive that “point” which will be announced early this coming week. Setting artificial deadlines and boundaries has not worked with this virus and the data around it to this point.
  • The review will be ongoing as it has been all along, and it is possible substantial changes could be made as needed in future days and weeks.

I don’t understand the reasoning here.

If this doesn't change again in the coming days/weeks, does this push the state finals to the week of 12/19?

I believe they will shut it all down till they get this virus under control.

If that is the logic maybe we will play in 2021, maybe we won't.

The season is over in my opinion.  Basketball seasons will be very abbreviated if played at all.  Spring outdoor sports should be good to go.
