  1. I am happy to see this game happening. It should have taken place each season and I hope it continues. These two small Western Kentucky schools are exactly what high school football is about. There will be a lot of history and tradition on the field Friday night. What does Mayfield have 9 or 10 State Championships? FC has 6 State Championships and two Kentucky Mr. Football alumni. I don't have any idea who wins Friday; no more Jonathan Jackson for the Cardinals and no more Coach Berner for the Falcons. Coach Morris remains for Mayfield and FC has an exciting kid named Triston Luke at RB that has the potential to be in the Mr. Football conversation someday. I hope this one goes down to the wire.
  2. Nope, nobody thinks anybody should be punished, let's not go too far down the rabbit hole on this.
  3. We noticed the same last year when Central visited Fort Campbell; they had at least 30 more kids dressed then we did. Participation is pretty high at FC with Coach Berner, but we were quite a few players short when we played Central. I agree on South Warren, don't know what criteria the KHSAA used in placing them in 3A, it was not based upon male student population.
  4. I agree, great to have another team from God's Country, (Western KY), in a title game. Would not have picked CC to make it a few weeks ago, but they appear to clicking pretty good right now.
  5. If or when Central wins another title next week, is it time for the KHSAA to bump them up to 4A???? Should they be playing small schools like Monroe County, Belfry, Bell, Fort Campbell or would all be better suited if they played Lex Catholic, Boyle, Highlands?? Just something to ponder.
  6. Congrats Monroe County Falcons on a superb season!! I know you guys in Tompkinsville are extremely proud of your coach, team & community as you should be.
  7. Monroe has more than a good opportunity of pulling this off; here are a few keys for them. 1) Anthony Wales graduated last season and this point can't be overstated. 2) Monroe can't turn the ball over and give Central extra possessions; zero turnovers = Monroe victory. Central is outstanding in forcing turnovers at key points in the game. 3) Central appears to have a few nicks and scars from their last game, Monroe can capitalize on this. This will be a huge challenge for the Falcons, but I am expecting a little magic from the country team against the champs from the 'Ville. Monroe 21 -14 Go Monroe County Falcons!!!
  8. Truer words have never been spoken!! All the chatter had been about having all FC personnel dressed and ready by the Region championship game and that the first two games of the playoffs were smooth sailing. South Warren however, was prepped and ready for playoff football. Congrats to South Warren.
  9. Now you guys in Tompkinsville understand why I have never and will never cheer for PT. Posts on BGP do not adequately describe Randy Wyatt - now that you have had a chance to see him in action, you know the truth. Great game MC, beat South Warren and then get ready to upset Central!!
  10. Congrats Monroe County Falcons!! You guys never gave up and came back from a big deficit - Tompkinsville is a tough place for a road team to win.
  11. Congrats to South Warren great job by a school in only their second football season. FC too many players out on the D-side as a result of suspension from two weeks ago at Hopkinsville. Nobody talked about it and hoped that FC could get through the first two weeks of the playoffs, get everybody back and get ready for the Region final. That was not the case, congrats to South Warren.
  12. Paducah Tilghman on the road in Tompkinsville to play Monroe County
  13. Caldwell County doesn't really play much D, but their explosive O will keep them ahead by a couple of TDs. Caldwell County 28 Hancock County 14
  14. Would like to see Graves pull this one out, but other than their RB they just don't have the talent or depth of talent to beat WC. I expect this game to be competitive in the first half and Graves could even get a lead at some point. After the half, WC takes over and wins by at least two TDs. WC 28 - 12
  15. You are exactly right on recognizing the positive results and the progress they have made in just a couple of seasons. It probably won't be this season and maybe not next year, but South Warren will become a factor in the Region very soon. They have sound coaching and there is a pretty good talent pool for them to pull from.
  16. I picked MC because they will win for two reasons location of the game and coaching. Tompkinsville is tough, MC has Coach Petett who has turned things around at Monroe and is one of the better, yet unknown coaches in the state. On the other hand, PT has Randy Wyatt who yearly accomplishes the least with probably the most talent in 3A with the exception of Central. As a FC fan, make no mistake, it fares much better for FC to play PT at the Fort than to travel to Tompkinsville. PT has never won at the Fort, Coach Berner is 7 - 2 against PT and has beaten PT twice in a row. When you throw the "Randy " factor in with that, FC would much rather play PT. However, being a man of principal I can never and will never cheer for Paducah Tilghman - Go Monroe County Falcons!!
  17. Not going to be surprised if Joker continues to survive for another season. At this point, it is way past overdue so why has it not happened?? Soon, all of Big Blue Nation will be focused on Coach Cal and another title run & Joker won't be in the spotlight. Don't be surprised at all next August when Joker walks out on the field and we start the whole dismal process again. I don't think the University has the courage to fire him quite honestly or it would have already happened.
  18. FC wins this one at the Fort. Sophomore Tristen Luke will break the 2,000 yard mark for rushing yards in this game.
  19. This should be a very good football game. Tompkinsville is a tough place to get to and a tough place to play once you do get there. We were there for the '08 semi-final and the crowd and enthusiasm there is very impressive. I think two things determine this game; location of the game in Tompkinsville & the coaching at Monroe County. As long as Monroe doesn't turn over the ball and give PT extra possessions, the MC Falcons will win by a TD.
  20. This is not '09 when PT was the least worst team in the 3A playoffs, which was the weakest class in the state. Six losses by a state champion pretty much establishes how poor the talent in 3A was during the '09 season.
