Sep 17, 07, 11:37 AM #3I think Lafayette is a little overrated with the schedule they have played....however, Sam Simpson has had trouble beating the Generals recently.
I say Henry Clay wins it 38-21.

This is going to be a huge game in Kentucky this week. The winner will probably win the Lexington district. I believe Henry Clay will win.

Hard to call them overrated when they dominated Boyle County and HC barely scraped by.

As I said last week when BC homers were saying Lafayette hadn't played anyone .. they went into North Bullitt and held one of the top offenses in the state to 6 points, and held one of the top 5 RB's to under 40 yards.
I wouldn't get to over confident.

Lafayette has found a successful formula for winning regular season ballgames. I give the team and coaching staff credit for that. They are not getting the respect around the state because they are beating teams that are not highly ranked in less than impressive fashion.
The game is all about winning and Lafayette is doing that.

Shawnee and Boyle County were their least impressive wins in terms of beating good teams. I can not stress enough that they went into North Bullitt and held a team averaging 40 points a game to 6, and a player averaging 200 yards rushing a game to under 40.

Who knows if they beat Henry Clay but to say they haven't beaten anybody is a very very ignorant statement.

The common opponent is Boyle. For better or for worse.

Henry Clay blew out to a big lead and the almost lost the game. Were it not for last second heroics they would have.
Lafayette capitalized on Boyle miscues and scored twice late to put it away.
If you have to say anything the Generals did a better job containing Boyle and putting them away.
Henry Clay dominated for 3 quarters and then all but lost it.
It should be a good one again between the two and a toss up. I might lean in the General's direction but not by much.
Sep 17, 07, 06:37 PM #11Even though Lafayette played a better game against Boyle then Henry Clay did, I still think Henry Clay is the better team,but not by much. HC by a TD.

In Dave Cantrall's ratings:
Shawnee (26.5) is 24th out of 38 teams in Class 3A
Franklin County (70.8) is 5th, Boyle County (66.1) is 6th, and North Bullitt (64.6) is 8th.....all in Class 4A.
That is why Lafayette (77.0) is ranked 9th in Class 6A.....strength of schedule. I am not saying they are not good. They are undefeated against perceived lower ranked teams.
Interesting enough, Lafayette will play Trinity (94.2), who is ranked 2nd (should be first) in both Class 6A and the entire state, in their last game. They are obviously not ducking great non-district competition, but instead, not playing it until late in the year.
By the way, Boyle is not a fine team. They are 0-4. They are better thank their record and I am rooting for them to win, but they haven't yet.
Sep 17, 07, 08:44 PM #13I don't put much stock in Cantrell's rankings. Boyle is better than 0-4 and Lafayette beat them way worse than Henry Clay. I agree with Hatz. I consider Boyle the measure. Either way I feel like defense is going to be a key factor in this game and IMHO that is Henry Clay's weakness. Both teams have awesome QBs so I expect plenty of airtime. I look for a highly emotional game since Henry Clay has something to prove.

If I were to pick a winner in this game, I would have to pick Lafayette. Henry Clay's defense, to this point, is awful! They can't stop the run, but they can't stop the pass!
What Henry Clay has to prove is that they can stop somebody.

You put stock in the Cantrell rankings last week. This is your quote before the Boyle County/Lafayette game.
