  1. Ever hear the phrase "parents are ruining sports"? The parents at Anderson County are who that phrase was written about. They're the folks who forced the AD to fire Peach who'd grown up in Lawrenceburg and was the winningest coach in program history. I wouldn't take the Anderson job for all the tea in China. They managed to dupe some poor guy from out of state into taking the job, and here it is less than 2 years later and we've got a case of a parent crying foul about the coach. All in favor of kids playing multiple sports. But if your non-school affiliated AAU basketball team has you m

  2. Agree it has zero indication of how good your team will do. But 7v7 does give your passing game/pass defense a chance to compete and work on technique in a competitive environment. The QB gets a chance to work on footwork, reading defenses quickly, and making accurate throws. Receivers work on getting off the line of scrimmage and separating. Linebackers and the secondary get a good opportunity to work technique and communication. In college your own team provides this level of practice. That’s why they do it several times a week. For most High school teams you have to go out and compete

  3. Let's not make generalizations like Anderson County parents are why Phrases like Parents ruining sports exist. AC parents are great and supportive, I am one and a Coach, so I see both sides. Not going to comment on the current scenario playing out in the media but the parents in AC are great and I'm proud to tell people I live and Coach in Anderson County.

  5. From what I have observed and am learning, albeit an admittedly small sample, I highly doubt it has anything to do with being scared or lacking competitiveness. I do not know Coopers HC but I do know Kevin at HHS and he’s not one to backdown from anything or anyone. Based on what I have heard/read, it seems to me that schools are opting not to play CCH to make a statement that questions how things are being done at CCH in terms of players coming into the program. However, As someone who was a football player at HHS when a lot of schools were ducking us because players were

  6. Bowling Green Purples. Incredible decade that is very close to the top of all schools in Bluegrass over last 10 years. Overall record: 122-14 6 State Championships in last 10 seasons. Heck of a run!

  7. Thought I would share a few photos I took of the new football stadium. Sorry I couldn't get closer, but it's still under construction. Will be ready by the Purples first home game in September. Great looking stadium. Kept a.lot.of the same look on the home side. Many will be angry about the hillside seating being taken away. That was one of the best things about the old stadium. I was told it was unavoidable. BUT I want to see what the end product over there is going to be first. Great job by the current administration, superintendent Gary Fields and everyone else involved

  11. I don't blame CovCath one iota for accepting kids from wherever, as long as they are playing within the specified rules. Worth noting, CovCath has a ton of Ohio kids in the hallways that aren't playing basketball, or anything else. It is a great, private, option for a lot of Ohio communities at about 66% of St. Xavier (and in most cases, much closer than Reading and Paddock). I also don't blame other schools for not liking it.

  13. I thought they ran a good tourney. The games were quick & efficient & they stayed on time. I think Bullitt East was able to get 10 or so games in over the course of Friday & Saturday; a lot of reps for the boys. They competed well & came back to win the consolation bracket after losing to BG. Ready for another good week of practice & onto EKU next weekend.

  14. Most preseason ratings weight off previous year and I agree most likely rated too high. With what Male has coming back, they might be rated too low.

  15. I agree. A lot changes when you add linemen and also the possibility of running the ball. A lot of times, not everyone plays either or often times, backups get a lot of reps as well, which is needed, where they wouldn't necessarily in a regular season game. 7v7, in my opinion, helps with timing and also some team bonding....that's about it.

  16. We've had discussion threads for most of the games in years past, so I figured I would start one for the Tokyo games since early competition begins today for softball, and soccer gets rolling tomorrow. Opening ceremonies will be airing at 6:55am Eastern on Friday. (Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of us in the Eastern time zone, and 14 hours ahead of those in the Central time zone.) Still feels weird writing "2020 Olympics" in late-July of 2021....stupid COVID.

  17. Let’s move on. Good time was had in Hoover and the boys are looking forward to EKU. A couple of injuries holding a few out; but all are minor. I think the program has looked good. Plenty of work to do but the classes are meshing well. It is nice to see Dunn take a leadership role in the secondary. Sure glad he is back in action. Benke and Harris adds size to the receiving core to the speedsters and hands group. Props to the young guys as they are building depth and scoring in bunches on the other side of the 50. Sorry still learning names but Cam Bottoms has thrown some seeds and you

  19. 100% agree with you @TylerDurden IMO: AAU sports should not be more important than school affiliated sports! Football is not a sport you can just practice 1 or 2 days a week and expect to be good. It isn't fair for the entire team that is busting their tails daily trying to accomplish a team goal. Also, by missing so much practice time in football, at some point, it becomes a safety issue. Not knowing what to do (play, technique) on the field can increase the probability of injury ten fold.

  20. San Francisco, who has the best record in baseball, has used 28. The Brewers have also used 29. With no only a 60 game season last year, and no minor league season, it was a given that teams were going to use more pitchers this year. When you extend young pitchers to 150% or more of the innings that they threw the season before they tend to have arm issues. That's been proven over and over. Everyone is using a bunch of pitchers for that very reason: Mets 32, Red Sox 23, White Sox 22, and the Astros 24. This was never going to be a completely normal season. That's why we're still ge

  21. This x 10,000,000! And you can see it already. I'm going say it. People are nuts. If you don't get the COVID vaccine, ok. But now much of this community (I fear) is going to go all-in on these vaccine conspiracy theories that were permeating on social media pre-COVID and become more mainstream. Why not? Let's bring back the plague while we are it.

  22. I have never been under any misconceptions that the COVID vaccine was going to be a panacea. If anyone is worried about COVID I would say get the vaccine. If anyone is not worried about COVID then carry on. Beyond that, all third parties need to get off everyone's behind and let nature takes its course.

  23. The vaccine was never solely intended to keep people from getting COVID. It's to keep COVID from killing us. That is a common misconception that has been rampant lately.

  24. I'm going to give my immune system a chance. The same with my kids. We fall into the least impacted category. Those with the vaccine are catching the Delta variant. I haven't social distanced since June last year. I'm pretty sure me and my family will be okay. Heading to West Virginia this weekend then South Carolina for two weeks. Unafraid. Will report back.

  29. We all know what this is about. It has nothing to do with being competitive and scared to play. Highlands was destroyed by Cov Cath the first 6 years Listerman was at HHS, didn’t stop him from scheduling them. If coaches in NKY feel the need to stand up and “boycott” Cov Cath because of perceived inappropriate behavior, then I say fine. Its the stakeholders in Park Hills who should ask the question as to why this is happening. And I’m sure the kids in the Fort will learn all they need to about “life” and being competitive every time they walk under the stat

  35. @Killowatt59 - good point on the track. I hate track's around football stadiums. McCracken has a newer field and the track is it's own stadium. I love Owensboro's Rash Stadium - and I've heard fans from across the state comment on being right on top of the action. Turf and nice, but no track.

  36. I don't disagree with you BK, but everything has a beginning and end. And stadiums don't last forever. And if you wait too long to make improvements then it can turn out poorly. Ask Ballard about that, who missed an entire home football season due to their stadium was found to be structurally unsafe. I will miss the setup at the El and remember quite a few "encounters" in the stands (the Blackman game sticks out here!) due to both teams fans sitting on the one side. Won't be like that anymore and kinda sad. But very thankful for the new facility.

  38. Those schools that are refusing to play CCH are only hurting their own players. Just think of the memories those St. Henry kids gained last year when they took down the Colonels on their home floor. They have those memories and will talk about that game and the region game the rest of their lives. That game may have been the reason they won the region game, who knows? The decision to not play CCH is petty, but knowing some of the coaches who are making this decision, doesn't surprise me one bit. In the end, it is the kids that lose out. If you want to be the best, play the best a

  42. In recent years Boyle County has been much more diligent about updating their Hudl account than their schedule on the KHSAA Scoreboard, and on Hudl they show a home game on September 3rd against Danville. The Danville football alumni twitter account tweeted the Danville schedule back in early May showing an away game at Boyle on September 3rd. The schedule was re-tweeted by the Danville Athletics Dept twitter account. I'd assume it's business as usual for the game to take place on Labor Day Weekend.

  46. Thank you for the background. I was not aware of all of this; I am still trying to get a grasp on the other sports besides football and girls soccer. It seems to me that HHS and Cooper would want to play CCH to prepare themselves for the tournaments. Like baseball, the regular season means absolutely nothing. Play the best to prepare yourself for when it matters. Or am I missing something?
