  1. So let's take a look at that Fayette Super position. If that is a publicly traded company with 5800 employees, working out of 50 facilities, and serving 40,000 clients each day, and gross receipts of $450,000,000, is the CEO (Superintendent) making $250k? Not a chance. So given the argument that most seem ok with what a CEO makes, would those same folks be ok paying a government employee with the same span of control similar salaries/ compensation packages? Not saying any answer is right or wrong. Just want to see how you feel about such compensation if they are footing the bill.
  2. Joker I get the point that your trying to make, and your point would be valid if not for one simple issue. Moseby has only been prosecutor for five months. The number of cases of alleged police misconduct that were settled in civil courts that she would have chosen not to prosecute would be few, and most likely none at all. I think you, Bash, and I all agree that her future relations w/ police are damaged. I would submit that her public comments, prior to, during the election, and since have served to set the tone for this problem. Her actions since have only served to seal the fate of that discord. Your point about a high number of allegations of abuse not being prosecuted is probably a big part of the reason Mosbey was elected. The losers in all of this will be the people of Baltimore. I read this morning that the number of homicides in the city for the month of May was adjusted down to 42, as one was deemed to have been a justified killing. Yes I said 42 murders in one month! On a side note. I have spent a little time in Baltimore and there is not enough money in the world to make me want to live there.
  3. I know that what you are saying is the standard answer when such a list is made but are you kidding! Venneman should be on the list before any and all of the receivers listed. One of the receivers listed as 1st team, Hughes, played quarterback the majority of his teams snaps this year. Nothing of his wide receiver production suggests All State recognition at that position. I know that kid is a really good player but he is not all state at WR or QB this year. Why attempt to defend such an obviously flawed process? Sometimes when we put together our best effort and then look back and see that the end product is a miserable failure (that's what this list is) we just have to scrap it. If I am a member of the AP and I know I have a faulty system I would object to proceeding with that system and discrediting the very organization that I represent. To defend the process in any way is to say that you are ok with it. I know of no 'professional' organization that would proceed in this manner. To the players listed, congratulations. It's a great honor to even be considered. Thanks for a great season.
  4. Have no idea what you were watching but there were no subs put in during the 4th quarter. None.
  5. You just came on to the Trinity Highlands thread to complain that people talk to much about Trinity and Highlands. You know you just did that,right. :no::no:
  6. It means UK will have plenty of options. They will return an experienced starter, a backup who saw some action, and a redshirt freshman that is highly thought of and has had a year to refine his skills and mature physically and as a QB. If the returning starter was successful roll on. If he was miserable move on. If results are mixed open up the competition and earn your coaching salary in making wise decisions. Towles currently has three years eligibility remaining.
  7. So for those of you against the use of SWAT as it has evolved to its current form I will give you a scenario and you are now the police officer. You have obtained a warrant for arrest and the search of Johnny's house. Johnny has sold weed to an informant three times in controlled buys. On one occasion Johnny had a revolver in his hand when he answered the door. He told the informant that he trusts nobody and that he is not getting robbed by some punk, and the cops are not sending him back to prison. Johnny has been arrested several times, mostly for drinking, fighting, and minor drug stuff. He did serve 18 months for a burglary and resisting arrest conviction. Johnny has been out for a year, has no job and spends his time drinking, fishing, and hunting. Johnny usually sells by the ounce and buys by the pound which he gets from two different sources. You don't know either source but Johnny claims his guys are real big wigs and not to be messed with. Today Johnny has told the informant that he can sell him two ounces after he re ups and told the informant he can drop in sometime after noontime. As you obtained the warrant another officer watched the house and saw a man arrive 10 minutes ago and carry a package inside. As far as you know Johnny and his visitor are the only people in the house. It's high noon (that's when warrants should be served right?) you and the other two officers that are working today are ready to go. You send the rookie around back to cover back door. You and the other officer are going to the front door. Are you ready? .........Are you ready? ........or should we wait and call SWAT?
  8. Interesting discussion for its own thread. Floyd would destroy Rhonda, as would a good number of BGP'ers.
  9. My guess is that you show up on a lot of lists. Often very near the top.
  10. You know I think you might be on to something. We could have all policemen work Monday through Friday. Say maybe they could come in to work around 9ish when the sun is up and it's daylight. Everybody home by 7:00, before darkness sets in, so they can be with their families. Maybe if the police could call ahead and make sure everybody is home so as to not waste time stopping by the house if the drug dealer isn't home. Think of all the taxpayer dollars that would be saved. Cops wouldn't be killing themselves at 10 times the national average. A lot less burnout when everybody gets to go home at night, spend time w/ family, sleep at night. Costs to hire and train new cops will go way down and we can use that money for more worthy causes. Your reality is not of this world.
  11. Please make this stop. This debate is based on information from an ACLU 'report'. That is in no way, shape, or form, a report. It's a story! It was written with a conclusion already determined and facts that supported that conclusion were inserted and surrounded by dramatic accounts of horrible outcomes. Had I turned in that 'report' to my high school English teacher I would have gotten no better than a C due to lack of effort to find balancing argument to at least compare. For a creative writing piece, this is A+ work. Look at the choice of language. What are 'military style weapons'? One account describes a 'grandfather' being shot as an example of a SWAT raid gone bad. I guess if ones mind is open to such suggestion one could conclude that the police were storming houses with tanks and firing them at little old men. Or could it be that that 'grandfather' is a 35year old man, just like the guy who lives two blocks down the street from me with his daughter (16) and grandson, (In an apartment that has a high probability of being the subject of a warrant based on what I see) and that the weapon used was a police issue handgun. And all this torment being thrust upon the public, as if the police were executing warrants upon the public at random, rather than directing those efforts against subjects of criminal wrongdoing, based upon probable cause, supported by sworn oath, and signed off upon by a judge.
  12. Gotta disagree here. You can do a lot of things in life for others. Playing high school football is not among them. Football, and particularly line play, is about the choice of out efforting ( I know that's not a real word) the guy(s) across from you. This is a conscious choice that you make maybe 100 or more separate times in a single game. You simply don't do that for someone else. Doing it for team, another person, etc... Simply will not work. YOU have to want to do that or there will be a let down. That letdown can, and likely will, lead to injury.
  13. 1. Reinstate Pete Rose 2. Denounce the use of banned substances, those who have used them, and teams that have ignored use of banned substances by players. Make harsh and lasting punishments for players and teams. 3. Speed up the game. Pitch timer on pitcher, hitter can ask for time out to step out of the box once per at bat. Limit of two throws to first per batter. 4. Revenue sharing formula 5. Salary cap with a hard ceiling for guaranteed money and allowances for incentives for team accomplishments. 6. Salary floor to avoid uncompetitive teams (the Marlin-Astro rule) 7. Tell LaRussa to shut up. Every time he cries to the media his team forfeits a game. Cardinals never would have been a .500 team with that rule. 8. Write down all of the" unwritten rules"
  14. Mass Maine Conn NY NJ Penn Maryland DC Virginia W Virginia N Carolina S Carolina Florida Georgia Alabama Louisiana Tenn KY Ohio Indiana Illinois Missouri Michigan Minnesota Texas Colorado Nevada Arizona California Canada Mexico Bahamas Caymans Jamaica Dominican Republic Costa Rica Ireland England France Germany Austria Chech Republic To do list includes Italy, Greece, Spain Reading that list makes me think.........had I invested the money I have spent on travel/ vacation????????
  15. Flash back one more year to 1997. Mueller repeatedly pulls his starters even in playoff games, then loses in double or triple overtime in the playoffs with a bunch of guys who are accustomed to playing less than half a game. After that experience I would have instituted the one series into the second half rule and stuck with it. What this all boils down to is that one of the best offenses in the history of KY football scored a bunch of points. It didn't matter who you put in front of them, they were going to score. They put 55 on the best 4A team. Why is it surprising that they would score a bunch against a struggling D w/ a new coach/ system, attempting two platoon for the 1st time, and unprepared for a spread offense in scheme and personnel. How does anybody have a problem with a team throwing the football up 28 - 0?
  16. Glyde, you do know that HHS vs. CCHS used to be an annual rivalry game. I think both teams hoped at that time that that would be the case again. Highlands happened to be a national contender and on the front end of a three year state championship run. A team that put 55 points on eventual 4A state champion Male one week prior. CC is looking to get back to that by scheduling their neighbor and using them as a measuring stick for where they need to be to get to their ultimate goals. Being maybe the largest school in NKY, they should be scheduling and competing with the top teams in the area. Back then it didn't work out. Hopefully those days are past and CC has 'raised the bar' to the point where all of the future games are competitive.
  17. If you look at some of the names of players on that roster whom do not appear in the box score it shows just how much the dogs were called off. The backup QB on that team was sophomore Gino Gudugli. Other Sophomores included future All American Brent Grover who was the backup tight end, and two time all state and Mr.Football runner up Brett Hamblin at WR. I remember leaving that game and thinking Highlands had done a good job trying to keep the score down. Guys played and got touches on the ball that did not even start JV games. One guy scored a touchdown on what may have been his only varsity touch of the season. Every kid on the roster played and played a lot. There is no shame in this game, highlands could easily have scored 100 even playing backups the second half. With starters it would have been much worse. As another poster stated CC was starting guys who were not ready. That, coupled with the talent HHS had in those three classes made for a horrible mismatch. Sometimes that happens. It certainly was not the fault of the HHS coach as he did everything in his power to keep it respectable.
  18. To further clarify, there is no risk to CovCath for playing him if his family were to get an injunction. No forfeits, fine or penalties, even if he is ultimately ruled ineligible. You may recall this was all clarified a few years ago when the legislature stepped hard on the KHSAA and the former commissioner 'retired'.
  19. FF18 there are about 20 or so kids here at the local school, and I suspect every other school, who really 'deserve' all that CovCath has to offer. Maybe you could take on some of those folks and try that 'transformation' thingy that you all do.
  20. Dead on Purple. The answer to that used to be UK. Few BCS schools don't have a four/ five star guy among there QB depth chart. UK now has 2 four star guys and have extended offers to a few more in the class of 2015. They will continue to recruit that calibre for both classes. The days of coming to UK to get early playing time are almost completely gone. That will happen for fewer and fewer as the Stoops area progresses.
  21. That's awesome! Congratulations to Austin. I know we are crossing over sports but it is great when one our KY football players gets recognition for whatever reason.
  22. This is exactly what the thread said. You defend Bruce and bash Votto. Why? When Votto has been able to play he has been far more productive than Bruce. Remember. Bruce was the first round pick that was to save the franchise. A five tool guy that could do it all. Votto happened to come along at the same time, with a whole lot less fanfare, and happens to be the better player. I like Bruce, but I will say that he has not progressed to the point that was expected. If Votto's production is :poop::poop: and it is still better than Bruce's production, how can you defend Bruce
  23. I know coach speak, and everything Brown says is exactly that. I also know what I saw in the spring game and Barker was not close to the other two. I don't blame Brown and Stoops for playing it the way they have. Guys know its close and they are pushing each other(and feeling pushed). Every one one is an injury away from moving up/down the list. Why as a coach would you announce a starter and risk transfer. Furthermore, from a recruiting standpoint if you bring a guy in who is the supposed gem of your class, he leaves high school to enroll early and get a head start, he damn well better appear to get a legit shot. If that guy feels he never got a shot and transfers he is a noose around the neck of future recruiting. One week into fall coaches know if anything has changed since spring that would extend this thing. At that point reps will start to go to the guy who leads. A week later that guy better have separated himself. If so, he starts getting the lions share of the reps.
