Christian County at South Warren 2.0 (Playoff Round)

South Warren went to Christian County two weeks after the Bowling Green game and came out pretty uninspired and allowed 13 points by the first team defense, which was surprising, but not damaging.  South Warren won the first game 51-20.  They are return home for a minimum of the first 2 rounds of the playoffs (and likely more if they are successful).  I think this round South will be really focused to take this game early; get the running clock and look forward to next week.

Christian County scored more points on South Warren in the last game than any of their previous 5 games against the Spartans (almost combined), so the likelihood for the Colonels with triumph in this game is pretty small.  

What say you?

There's little doubt that South is going to win this one. The real question is if South will get back to the same level of intensity that they had when they played Bowling Green earlier this season. I think that was probably the pinnacle of South's play so far this year. They were able to hold BG's offense to 58 total yards. After Bowling Green, the Spartans have gone into each game with the mindset that it's going to be an easy win. They easily beat McCracken the week following Bowling Green, allowing only 47 total yards of offense and that was with the JV in for most of the 2nd half. However, they only had 3 tackles for loss and no sacks. The next week they decided to take it easy against Christian County and lacked the focus that they usually possess. They won, but let Christian County have more success than they had seen against almost any opponent this season. They held Greenwood to 16 rushing yards, but didn't press the pass coverage. They only allowed 3 points out of Logan county, but gave up some big plays. If South can't get back to the same level of intensity that they had in week 6, then they are going to struggle in the 2nd round of the playoffs when they most likely face a very hungry and talented Bowling Green team.

Good assessment SD!  

The thing with all that you said, to me boils down to Coach Smith.  He's been here before and he'll do a great job of getting the Spartans ready to play Week 2.  Spartans won't need a reason to get up for BG and vice versa.  The thing with that game (and I apologize to Christian County and Greenwood fans, but just no way this year) is its so unpredictable.  

First game of the series:  BG blows out South 

Second game of the series:  South stuns BG in playoffs

Last year - regular season - South wins an old-school scrum 10-7

Playoffs last year - BG wins one of the craziest, 13-turnover games I've ever seen.

So to say I know what's going to happen Week 2 is a complete mystery to me.  But will be fun to watch!

I agree completely. One thing is for sure, between South and BG, it is completely unpredictable who will advance out of the 2nd round of playoffs every year. Yes, South has the advantage this year, but they probably did last year as well and we know what happened there.  I believe that Bowling Green will offer a bigger challenge than anybody else in the playoffs until the state tournament. I think BG is severely underrated. After FD got destroyed by Boyle last week, I would probably estimate BG should be ranked closer to 4 or 5 overall in 5A based on how well they did against Boyle. I would also move FD out of the top 3.

Let me first say, that Boyle County was 100% the better team when they beat BG earlier in the year.  My point for that game is the BG defense didn't show up for whatever reason until mid second quarter.  Boyle was already up 21-0 at that point.  So I don't think they gave Boyle enough credit going into that game and it cost them.  I think BG is above where they are ranked now, but not sure where.  They just have so many untimely mistakes (mostly offensively) this year.  Thing is they "could" put it all together.  But then again, they certainly couldn't as well.
