    Out of 320 Indiana schools I only counted 15 that have yet to play a game. Most of them have already played 2 or 3 games. Seems like a pretty good success in a Covid world.

    One of the best ongoing series' in western Kentucky pits perennial power Mayfield against a team that's given them some fits in recent years, McCracken County. The two schools have met every year since McCracken's inaugural season in 2013. Mayfield holds a 4-3 edge in the series, with the average score being 40-34 in the Cardinals' favor. Not only are the games usually competitive, but they're often fan friendly, high scoring shootouts, as was the case in last year's 45-35 Mustangs victory at War Memorial Stadium. Both schools are in a similar boat to start the 2020 season. Mayfield (Stinson and Neely) and McCracken (Wheat and Hayes) both lost great quarterbacks and record setting receivers, and both return standout running backs that had big games in last season's contest. The homestanding Mustangs bring back Hunter Bradley, who hit up Mayfield's defense for 150 yards and a pair of scores, while the Cards counter with Kylan Galbreath (135 yards and a touchdown). If both teams stay true to form, it should be another wild night on the Jackson Purchase.

    This game will feature 6A North Hardin coming to "The Farm" to take on Frederick Douglass. This game will feature 3 University of Kentucky commits. The Trojans of North Hardin and Coach Brent Thompson coming off a great 2019 season where they finished at 13-1 losing in the 6A semis against eventual State Champ Trinity. While they lost several off of their defensive line they still are looking for another big year. They have a Mr. Football candidate in Kentucky commit Lavell Wright. Wright is coming off a 2019 campaign that saw him rush for over 1800 yards and 25 TD's as well as over 550 yards receiving and 3 more touchdowns. He will get a stiff opening challenge to begin his senior season against a very good Frederick Douglass defense that has at least 5 players with D1 offers. Frederick Douglass has had a great start to their football program. In their 3 season they have amassed a 35-5 record. Last year was their best to date. The Broncos finished 2019 at 14-1 with their only loss coming in the 5A title game vs undefeated (15-0) Covington Catholic 14-7. The Broncos did lose a national talent Walker Parks to Clemson. However the Broncos still have multiple D1 talent on both sides of the ball. This is will be the first game for new head coach Nathan McPeek. The Douglass defense which was there main stay last year only giving up 98 total points and went 29 straight quarters without allowing a point. Their defense is expected to be very good again this season with one of most athletic defensive backfields in the state. However this year the Broncos offense could be very good with two of the top receivers in the state in Kentucky commit Dekel Crowdus and Dane Key. If new junior transfer quarterback 6'7 Samuel Cornett is what he is billed to be, this could be another special season for the Broncos. Due to several teams cancelling games with the Douglass this game with North Hardin as well as the Nov. 6 game added with St. Xavier are definitely upgrades to the Broncos schedule. This should be a very interesting game to open the season for both teams. I'm looking forward to seeing this one.

    That and the university of Tennessee having 28,000 enrollment as college kids may have something to do with that.

    If Moeller is one of the most talented teams Trinity plays this season, the Shamrocks are going to have an easy season.

    Wow, didn’t realize that was the score in 2016! Took me a minute to remember that one. I think St.X wins, but wouldn’t be surprised if the game feels like the 2014 game with both offensives struggling. With not many live reps over the last couple of months I think most defenses will be ahead of offenses. Like I said earlier, I’ll take St. X 17-7. FYI, I’m so glad to see these threads again!

    Obviously Penn State Dr. That's not a mistake, that's a blatant lie. And if we keep up with the narrative, that was the reason initially given when they said Big 10 was canceling. Fast forward to where the Big 10 is in a law suit and scared about having to release documents. It's all crap, piles and piles of crap. Never seen anything like it.

    This marquee Week 1 matchup features two of Kentucky's most recognizable programs. Both schools are looking for bigger and better things this year after recording their lowest win totals and earliest playoff exits in several years. Granted, Beechwood made the 2A semifinals, but the Tigers were coming off three consecutive 1A championships. Noel Rash still patrols the sideline for Beechwood, but a new/old face will be leading the Redhounds this year. Tom Greer returns to his old stomping grounds as the new head man for Corbin, and he steps into an enviable position with the talent on their roster. Among the standout players for each side: Cam Hergott (Beechwood QB), Trayveon Longmire (Corbin ATH), and Dakota Patterson (Corbin WR). Beechwood holds a 2-1 edge since the series picked up in 2017. Both teams have high hopes of lifting championship hardware in Lexington, but it all starts this Friday night at Campbell Field.

    St. X is coming off a 8-5 season and hosts Bowling Green who is coming off a 9-4 season. The offense side of the ball will be the strengths of both teams to start the season. This could be a high scoring game. The Tigers will be led by QB transfer Sr. Giles Pooler from Colorado and the WR duo of Jr. Mekhi Smith and Jr. Michael Duddy. The Tiger defense will be inexperienced up front but return LB Sr. Kurtis Cotten and the secondary. Bowling Green returns their QB Sr. Conner Cooper, RB Sr. Javeius Bunton, and one of the top Tight Ends in the state with Sr. Jordan Dingle. On defense the Purples will be rebuilding around their top tackler from last year SR. Rece Jones. In addition, they return their 8th and 10th tacklers from last year so will be inexperienced to start the season. The key factor for both teams will be which defense steps up to slow down these high flying offenses. Which team gets the win? Past 5 years history: 2019: St. X 28-14 2018: BG 24-21 2017: St. X 30-19 2016: BG 31-10 2015: St. X 45-19

    Jim McKee's motto might as well be "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", as Scott County begins year 24 running its coaches vaunted wing-t offense. Year 23 ended on a sour note, dropping the district championship to a fresh faced rival. The Cardinals look to get back on the right track in 2020 against another familiar foe from Lexington. The last four years have been a low point for Bryan Station, recording a mark of 10-34 during that time. New coach Philip Hawkins comes over from Apollo looking to right the ship. Scott County has had its way with Station ever since the Defenders' last win in the series back in 2014. The last six meetings have gone in the Cardinals' favor by an average margin of 30 points, with Scott County scoring 40+ each time.

    The Rocks open the highly anticipated 2020 season ranked #15 in the USA Today Super 25 poll, and the obvious favorites to win back to back 6A state titles. Mighty Moe comes to town and will likely be one of, if not the most talented team Trinity will face this season.

    Only going to be 1200 tickets and players get 4 so dwindles the amount more. I’m hoping I score a ticket. Good thing is will be live-streamed for free on NFHS network. I imagine BG will be given some tickets also.

    For the Purples, it will be important for Purples offense to stay on the field to let the Purples defense get time to gel. There are a lot of good pieces on the Purples defense but they haven't played together before so it could take a little time. I think their offense should be really good with many options to go to. I think this is a tough spot for BG right out of the gate though but I expect them to compete and keep it close. Can St X stop the Purples from running? Will the safety's move up to do that? Will be prime for play action IMO. I also think the St X offense will have success, so it could be a back and forth game. Any St X guys that could help a friendly Purple fan find a ticket, I'd REALLY appreciate it!

    This game might feature more future FBS talent than any other on the schedule this week. Maybe by a wide margin. A lot of future Wildcats on the field with Burton, Crowdus, Wright, and Lovett. We think we know how good Douglass is, so this game might tell us more about North Hardin. I honestly don't know who to go with here. I'll have to give it a few days.

    Very interested to see how Pooler looks in a St. X uniform. He'll have a great pair of receivers to work with. Give me the Tigers. Too many holes in that BG secondary without Tisdale and Co. from last year.

    I was looking forward to that game. That is the type of game Corbin needed for down the road. Sounding like now that this game might not be taking place, I would only hope for a similar caliber opponent. Corbin had a team scrimmage last night. A packed house on the outside of the fence in all directions. No fans was allowed inside the gates. Not a parking place to be found. Looked like our offense will be very hard to handle. Just too many weapons. I don’t know how a team can defend all these receivers. Defensively, looking like we will control the tone of the games we play in. Greers defense is second to none in 4A. 2020 The Year of the Redhounds.

    I suspect that Joey, due to his longevity on the team, commands an intimidation factor when it comes to Bell's handling of him. I suspect that Joey has first call on what Joey does or does not do, and I imagine that Joey still has a rather high opinion of himself. . I'm thinking the recent benching might have been more Joey's doing, than Bell's.

    I’m very open to admitting I was completely wrong about this virus at first. It took me a couple weeks to see the light. The funny thing was after I saw the light, the other light at the end of the tunnel has slowly faded as we still witness people unwilling to relinquish the slightest bit of “freedom” so they can enjoy their real freedoms. They failed to realize that my “freedoms” that I really care about, I have zero control over my ability to do them. I want to get up in the morning turn head to a tailgate or lay on the couch with a bowl of cereal watching Gameday or Fox Kickoff. Crack open my first beer of the day at 10 am. Turn on the Ohio State game and complain about the fact that the Big 10 and Fox decided to always put Ohio State games at noon. I want to turn on the SEC game of the week on CBS at 3:30. I want to go meet some friends for some food around 7:00. Watch the prime time game at a bar. Close down that bar at night begging the bartender to leave the Arizona State/ Utah game on the tv at 1 am. That’s the freedom I care about. I will never, ever take that for granted again.
