No question that Manual's is truly ambitious. I believe they started that trend last year. It is great to see them continuing. it only helps. Congrats to them for doing what needs to be down to upgrade a program.

 

Glad you also recognized T's. With not one -but two - Cincy Powers. An Indy Power. Manual - Eastern -Ballard and Seneca (all highly touted in this am C-J. And last, but certainly not least - our own beloved St.X.

 

GO ROCKS.

I am looking at this from a distance, but I think it is the right move going to the tough schedule IF they get wins. They need to finish over .500. You take a tough schedule like that, add in the academics at the school and you have the makings to build state championship program. But they need to win games to build momentum. If they win games against that tough schedule, then they should draw top athletes to the school and get the talent they need to compete for titles. I would like to hear from those in Louisville about the potential for Manual to actually compete against X and T at some point for state titles. Is that an attainable goal for Manual?

Why Jim, I didn't know you cared!:idunno:

 

I would rank the rock's schedule a close second to Manual's. Both face some traditional powerhouses as well as teams ranked highly this season.

Absolutely - no one is nearer or dearer.

As an FYI, Calpreps.com, a California based web group that tracks HS Football all over the country, has rated TRINITY as having the toughest schedule in the Bluegrass, followed at #2 by Manual.

They do a real good job doing things objecively. Not sure how accurate it all is, but it's fun to look at regardless.

 

Interestingly, their schedule listing does not include this week's game. Don't know if Trinity is playing this week or not but gotta imagine if you include Highlands, Manual might be #1 in SOS.

Thanks for the link. I clicked through the rankings for a bit and didn't see Highlands anywhere on the list though. Hard to believe...
