    Independents often allow out of district students to attend their schools. They do this while only charging a fraction of what a private school would, so essentially they get to act as a private school (no set district limit) while not having the steep barrier of high tuition.

    If an independent district doesn't allow out of district students (full stop), I have no problem with them.

    Out of district tuition at Highlands is an example. Only 5k per year. For comparison, tuition at Trinity is 13k.

    County schools accept players from across county lines, state lines and from within the city districts every year. So your complaint about Independents rings hollow to me.

    That really seems to be a detriment for Trinity...

    I'd venture to say that the average Independent School Football team only has a handful, at most, tuition players.

    I agree. In many ways being independent is even better than being private. If there were 6a independent schools, I suspect they would win big.

    Also, who are these county schools who accept kids across state lines? Is that legal?

    They do have advantages, but few are related to sports.

    Anyone who thinks there should be a private-only class should be aware that there are only 14 football playing private schools in Kentucky and 10 of that 14 are all 2A or smaller.

    Anyone who wants to force tiny Bishop Brossart and other 1A schools to compete with St. X and Trinity each year doesn't actually care about fairness; they just want an easy road to the state finals.

    Who would ever say Brossart should be in the same class as X / T?

    Big Private: X, T, Cov Cath, Lex Cath (add BG, Highlands, Owensboro as independents if you want)
    Small Private: Everyone else

    So you are saying that we should have a 6 or 7 team class?

    Yes, in general, I'm fine with the private / independent class being very small in comparison to the other group. Their needs should not mean that everyone else has to compete in an inherently unfair system. They can still play the other teams - just not in district / playoffs.

    Despite the fact that public schools choose to close their own borders, restrict their own access to students and so on. We have had this discussion ad nauseum on here.

    How many public schools in KY do not allow out of district students?

    In N. Ky., I believe it is only the Boone County schools, right? All other public schools in N. Ky. allow out of district students, don't they?

    Wow! Looking at the small class Southwest district, I did not know that there were two schools named Owensboro Catholic, Todd County Central, and McClean County. Looks like a great number of O-Cath Aces, Todd Central Rebels, and McClean Cougars being cloned. Here is a more equatable proposal for all the Western Kentucky small schools:
    Southwest District: Mayfield, Murray, Ballard Memorial, Fulton City, Fulton County, Crittenden County, Webster County, Todd Central, Russellville
    West Central District- Butler County, Owensboro Catholic, Hancock County, McClean County, Glasgow, Clinton County, Metcalfe County, Monroe County, Green County.

    Three classes is a great idea. Only the district winners and runner up would go to the playoffs and all the state championship games can be played on a Saturday. For a long time, Tennessee had only three classes in football and it worked out well. Tennessee also did have post-season bowl games for teams not making the playoffs. These bowl games can be played on the first weekend of the playoffs.
