  1. Congrats to Cooper who has been, like many others, severely impacted by Covid. While not a scoring fest by either team, only giving up 28 points is a positive and staple for the Jags who has traditionally had a stingy defense.
  2. Looking forward to seeing the Jags playing most, or maybe even all, of their games on turf. They were long overdue for having their home games on a great surface. Will be a huge benefit for practices as well.
  3. Congratulations to Cam and he is a heck of a player that’s for sure. Unfortunately for him, and for many great D1 athletes, NKY “can be” a liability in getting significant looks by bigger schools. Too many times stop in Cincinnati and pass right through NKY headed to Lexington and Louisville. I would tend to think if he were at a school in Lex or the Ville he most likely would have had at least 1 D1 offer, just my opinion. Of course the Covid situation did not help one bit either as all players got the option to return for another year. Everyone’s path is different and I wish him nothing but success. JJ Watt, Baker Mayfield and many others were all walk-ons who turned out ok. Best of luck to the young man!
  4. I don't think the last part will be an issue. As the phrase goes, "It's not personal, it's strictly business". I think everyone will agree that NKY and KY football is better when HHS is competitive and whoever gets the job, if and when that happens, will know that expectation but the main thing is that there is more parity in the region than in years past.
  5. FINALLY! How/why his name got dropped in from this perspective was a head scratcher to begin with.
  6. As you continue to prove my point. The current HHS coach is still there so really not even sure why someone would bring Coach B. into the discussion and yep, Cooper has been outmanned for the last several years but they seem to be moving in the right direction, as evident Friday, and beating Ryle and/or Dixie are very possible and I'll venture to say they will finish .500 at worst especially if they end up the 2 seed in the district. Frankly, with what Cooper has in the pipeline the Jags should be in very good shape and getting the long overdue turf will be a plus for the Cooper coach especially if their freshman team sticks together. If your litmus test for the next coach, if that does come to pass, is beating CCH, that list is going to be very short and if that is true, you have a coach that has done that before why do so many want him gone? As for your "Job One" comment.....well, it's been a minute since that box was checked
  7. This is too funny. HHS has a coach currently but yet the dialogue shifts to talking down about the coach that laid the beat down on HHS and was supposed to get “boat raced” by 3 or more TDs? It would appear to me that one would at least wait until there is a vacancy before putting candidates up for consideration but certainly Borchers might be a worthy candidate IMO vs what is taking place right now if that is what he has interest in. The Jags were obviously outmanned Friday night but certainly weren’t outcoached. My suggestion to the Bird faithful would be to let it play out but like I’ve said previously, teams don’t “fear” the HHS mystic any longer and there is more parity in NKY, outside of CCH, right now.
  8. Check and didn’t see it previously. Based on last night I believe Cooper would be at the top of that tie-breaker. The earlier post showing RPI I hope did not include last nights game.
  9. If memory serves me correctly, Cooper had this problem in their 2012 State Championship runner-up season. Unless the rules have changed, the tie-breaker then was you counted the total wins of your opponents excluding the results of one another. Cooper ended up 3rd and went on the road for every game in the playoffs to BG. Not sure if the rules have changed.
  10. What amazes me is Lee does this late in the 4th qtr after virtually playing the entire game. He, like most of the Jags, plays both ways and for Lee to make this run after handling every snap on offense and playing every snap on defense plus kickoff and kickoff return is truly special. Most don’t fully realize all he has been asked to do since his freshman year.
  11. Anyway, back to the game. Anyone happen to have the rushing stats for the game. Curious to see how many yards Lee and Wright ended up with? Great job popping those two loose as they don't need much room to break free.
  12. Can't see that happening. The Jags pipeline is plenty full with the freshman class and new turf coming not to mention he's also the AD at Cooper.
  13. He didn't. Personal reasons. He's definitely a baller though.
  14. HUGE Win for the Jags! Lee and Wright are a 2-headed monster and the were virtually unstoppable. Had it not been for the late 3rd qtr INT they probably would have scored on every drive as I do not believe they punted the entire game. Defense bent but didn't break and made HHS have to put long drives together...Coach B's philosophy. Thanks to HH folks for broadcasting the game so those of us who had to move away could watch the game!
  15. Nearly all of Cooper's players are going both ways. Be interesting to see if they can dig in.
  16. Both teams are focusing on Ball control, Ball Control, Ball Control!!!
  17. Let's see, I read earlier "HHS Names the Score", "HHS by several TDs", "After the CCH beating they will be ready to play or I feel sorry for the Jags after last week". Looks like somebody forgot to tell the Jags not to show up!! Like I said earlier, do not be surprised if the Jags squeak this game out. Scoring 27 points in the first half certainly was not expected but I will surely take it. The Jags don't have the depth of HHS but they are just lining up and playing...period! Yes, there's another half to play but the near 90% of people from the poll definitely didn't expect this, that I am sure of! Go finish Jags!!!
  18. I’ll take Cooper in a close one. Understand on paper and previous games one would think Birds all day but If HHS goes all out thinking Lee is the only weapon on this team they could get surprised. Be overconfident if you must but I won’t be too stunned by an upset.
  19. While there may be some truth to your comments, I do not agree that there is a substantial gap in talent level between NKY, Lexington, and Louisville. If some of the higher level NKY talent played for a school in a larger metro area I would venture to say that those players would be receiving looks from larger schools. Contrary to some belief, exposure plays a significant part in recruiting and while there NKY doesn't have year in and year out high level D1 players, there are several that get passed over simply because of location and it's not always not tall enough, fast enough or whatever. To bring it back to the thread, this is true in Rulli's case. The young man, who's only 16, would have been one of the best linemen in the state for his senior season but going to Taft will provide him not only an additional year of development, it will give him some major D1 exposure as there is an abundance of big schools that come through on a regular basis. He will land somewhere some where big in '22 I am sure of that.
