  1. People continue to give this kid their grief. But yet, all he continues to do is to be a great kid everywhere he goes. Bravo to him.

  2. We are two weeks away from the start of postseason in Class 3A so lets take a minute and look at the current RPI situation and how it could affect playoff brackets. First, six of the current top seven are from the western half of the state. That could make for some very interesting third round matchups. However, outside of the top three, perhaps only two more top ten teams are considered favorites to make it to the quarterfinals (Bell County; Ashland or Russell). If the season ended today and the district favorites all advanced to the quarterfinals, the bracket would look like t

  4. You may be right. However, so many people completely misunderstand exactly how good someone must be to truly be a D1 talent. A player can be a great high school player and still not be close to a D1 player.

  6. The best part for anyone who has a different opinion about the rankings, is that every team in there, especially in the 7-10 range where there has been the most changes, will get at least one more chance to prove they belong. If Dixie gets past Simon Kenton in the 1st round of the playoffs, they'll get another crack at Ryle to get their signature win this season and prove they're top 10. That's all anyone can ask for is an opportunity. What they do with it from there is up to them.

  9. I think that everyone is forgetting about Opponents and their wins ... which is part of the reason why Beechwood made a nice jump this past week. Will McCracken, Paducah Tilghman, Hopkinsville win all of the rest of their games? Will Cov Cath, Dixie Heights, Simon Kenton win their games? Who knows? The only thing that I know for sure ... is that anyone that says it is one way or the other ... is guessing at this point. Way too many pieces to fall into place still.

  10. A little more numbers talk... Conner, with their RPI of 0.53712, is averaging 24.5 points per game, with one defensive touchdown and no special teams touchdowns on the season. Cov Cath has a somewhat higher RPI at 0.59292, and they are averaging 23 points per game, with one defensive touchdown and no special teams touchdowns this season. Cov Cath has won the last 5 games in this series by an average of 33 points. Looking at things realistically, I think Cov Cath has a slight advantage, with the results of the two Highlands games aside. But my memory is long enough to remember more than o

  12. I know the ultimate goal is to win every game, but UK is likely to still go 11-1. That is a historic season, one to be celebrated.

  13. I wish more schools would do this. I understand places wanting to be "professional" about things, but school is a place to learn. Why not do what Highlands does and let the kids try their hand at this. There are bound to be a few that find it to be their passion.

  14. Big 5A game with huge district implications. Cooper has a 7 point loss to Ryle and a 4OT loss to CovCath. Highlands seems to have their QB decision made and are getting healthier week by week. HHS held CCH to 8 points and snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory. Cooper has more confidence in this game than maybe any in their brief history of this rivalry. Highlands wants to regain the confidence they had with wins over Bowling Green, Simon Kenton and Campbell Co early in the season and only have a win over Boone County since. On paper this looks like a Cooper win with that dominant d

  15. In the entire wonderful state of Kentucky, only 8 boys' teams will have practice this evening, so they all deserve a huge congratulations! It is a terrific accomplishment to be one of the last 8 standing, overcoming adversity along the way in nearly every case, surviving district and regional tournaments, and then winning your first State Tournament game (including 2 managing to win road games, which is never easy this time of year). Here is the schedule for your Elite 8 over the next 3 days: * Thursday, October 21st, at 7:00: Boyd County (#71 in Maher Ranking) at Dunbar (#2)

  17. Eddie is a GREAT coach, but are you implying that he was willing to sacrifice 2 losses to teams in lower classes, which will destroy their RPI rating and possibly make them travel for playoff games in order to keep a mythical passing game under cover? I find it much more likely that they didn't pass against those teams because they couldn't. Especially the Beechwood game. That is a big time crosstown rival that they had not lost to in a bit. If he could have used the pass and won that game he would have. Let's stop the "when they get to the second and third play call sheet." They'r

  18. Oh and getting a letter inviting you to Penn State's camp because they want to see your son/daughter for a fee of $775.00 does not mean you are being recruited as a D1 athlete. Sorry this is my rant on the multitude of social media posts about how players are being "invited" or recruited.

  20. Dixie has shown all year long that they can't get over the hump and win against the top notch opponents. I'm not a Dixie fan and I'm surprised and disappointed at what their record looks like right now. I was expecting more. It is hard to argue they could beat any of the ten teams ahead of them.

  22. Yea, I'm not sure what Mayfield has to do with anything?? For Owensboro, the focus is more on teams like South Warren, Fred Doug and Graves again than a hypothetical Mayfield comparison. For them to go on the road and win this game without Carbon is impressive. Graves missed a big chance to get the Devils at home later. That's going to make for a tough trip next month.

  23. I know we are focusing on Mayfield and Beechwood but I find it comical that two teams that Owensboro Catholic beat by an average of 40 points are ahead of them in the RPI.

  24. I look at the last drive as Kentucky doing what is best for Kentucky and managing to put together a super long drive that resulted in a touchdown is a good thing for Kentucky moving forward.

  25. After no scoring through 3 quarters, the offenses came to life in the 4th. The wind really hampered them both for most of the game, Union made a lot better use of it when it was at their back. Tilghman made a valiant comeback effort the last several minutes, but fell short. Should make for a great playoff matchup as well. Very evenly matched teams.

  27. Cats were out manned today. The losses of two starting D-linemen sure didn't help either. UGA defenses was crazy fast today and UK got less YAC than any game I can recall. UGA didn't a great job tackling all day. Luckily UK will not play another defense anywhere near that good. This game could be a good springboard for the rest of the season. That last TD was a great call by Stoops...it ended a tough game with a positive.

  29. This game was never in question. If not for a lightning delay, I think BG scores on their first possession. Add that to GW turns it over at least 4 times. BG ran the ball effectively and had a few good passing plays, but I'm very encouraged by the maturation process of QB Deuce Bailey. His TD play action pass later in the game was nice. SR RB Matrix Halcomb played his backside off. BG was atrocious at kickoff coverage tonight. Not sure why. And the snaps were a bug-a-boo again. MANY, many penalties. Some were suspect but majority were valid. Gotta clean that up. But overall

  34. Love all you guys, but this is thread Cincinnati sports fan in a nutshell. Dude coaches a team to a 23 point win, and we'll complain he used the wrong personnel. I've always said that eventually the Bengals will win the SuperBowl and this city will complain that the game ran too late and they were tired on Monday.

  35. This is a huge county rivalry game year in and year out BUT this is probably the biggest in the history between the two schools. Regular season district championship on the line! I'll break it down a little later this week but I am looking forward to being at Apollo Friday for a huge tailgate show and the call of this one. DC will be about a 2 TD favorite but do not count out Coach Edge and the Eagles.

  37. 100% correct!!! I talked about the issues that Beechwood, Mayfield, LCA, Pikeville, etc. will face going forward as they try to fill out schedules in a previous thread about this topic. Something has to be done to address the issues with the RPI system.

  38. All good points. However, surprised to see you acting like there is no chance for Covcath to lose. I would say Cooper probably has shown they are deep with good football players too, considering Cooper was down 5 starters in that game against Covcath and still took them to 4 OTs. So Covcath would most likely be seeing a better version of Cooper too if the rematch happens.

  39. I can see both sides of this. I am with @theguru that 70 is preventable in a running clock game. On the other side, Ballard Memorial gave up 62 to 2-8 Marshall County and Murray scored 75 on them last week. At the end of the day, I do think a coach can keep his own team from scoring 70 in an early running clock game.

  41. Add in COVID with an extra bus ride and back (over an hour long one way), sitting around in a gym during a weather delay, tonight was a shutdown waiting to happen. Not a fan of Saturday night games but dramatically improves our chances to avoid a shutdown & really screw up our season. Appreciate my AD, Donald Smith, Henry Co. Coach Matt Wright & AD, Stuart Dill. First class leadership and super to work with.

  43. To lose a brother is a big deal. To lose 2 brothers in 2 months is unreal. Please pray for the Eviston family. They are good people and even though they knew this day was coming it won’t make it any easier. I hope Highlands will do something at the game to honor a great man and his family who fought the good fight. They did their part to raise a lot of money for others in the same boat. Result of this one really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Go hug your siblings!
