  1. On a football thread, a Highlands fan suggested that the basketball rivalry between the two schools (paraphrasing) recently grew by a 1000%. Other than the football game last night and a heated middle school basketball game between HMS and one of the CCH feeder schools on Thursday, I am not aware of anything else. Did something happen in recent weeks between the basketball programs that intensified the rivalry?
  2. They didn't run up the darn score. Those are misguided comments by an emotional fan. EVERY team has groups of fans like this. We could start a very long thread exchanging examples of obnoxious/misguided fan behavior amongst Highlands and Cov Cath fan bases. Whatever.
  3. Not to high jack a thread, but how did the basketball season get more interesting? Are you referring to the SPX/HMS games Thursday, or did something happen at the high school level?
  4. Another first cousin, Jeremy Collins, also from the class of '92, pitched at Bellarmine, but was injured early.
  5. To eliminate confusion amongst all of the Brandons and Bergers. I am referring to: Matt Berger - CCH Jelani Brandon - Lloyd Brandon Black - Boone Co Yes, Brandon Berger was in the following class.
  6. No, Matt Berger - his cousin. Neither Matt Berger nor Brandon Black were drafted out of high school.
  7. 1992 Etler - UK - 3rd Round Reds Berger - Louisville & on to White Sox Lantz - Southern Illinois Soward - Miami OH Brandon - UC - 6th Round Royals Black - JUCO & then UK & NY Mets Johnson - Pirates draft pick Hacker - Morehead State Proccacino - William Carey Collins - Bellarmine Maley - NKU Bertsch - NKU Greene - Indiana How many classes have had two preps selected in top 10 rounds of MLB draft? My guess is not many. I believe a couple pitchers with Campbell Co also pitched at NKU - Haggard and Neace?
  8. Roughly - 8-10 carries for a buck 30 and 2 scores. First time he has seen varsity action this year.
  9. Easily, the coolest high school stadium I ever played in. Awesome place for high school football.
  10. That's what I figured. CCH is very lucky to have him. He has some nice talent and willing pupils. Bright days ahead at 1600 Dixie Hwy.
  11. "High Motor" "Plays with great pad level"
  12. Ah yes, the PHM reference. In truth, Eddie is doing a great job with this team. This fan is thrilled to have him and expect great things - maybe even yet this year. I expect some very tough practices and good preparation for this week's game.
  13. No disputing the results. Maybe someday the Colonels will start turning it around. We're splitting hairs on the definition of a rivalry. My guess is several members of your own fan base still consider CCH a rivalry. But, at the end of the day, arguing over the definition of a rivalry is silly, so I'll stop. Good luck the rest of the way. Hoping both sides earn a rematch.
  14. Hard to call it a rivalry, yet beating Cov Cath is 1 of 2 key factors in a successful season? What?
  15. Right on about Mayer - very bright days ahead.
  16. Birdman - as a fan of CCH, you're right, it is very frustrating. But, regardless of how it looked, I really enjoyed watching both sides compete yesterday. Kudos to Hergott - he's been blasted on BGP this year. He made plays and guided that offense turnover free. As we all saw, turnovers played a huge part in the outcome. They were not the sole reason for the outcome, but man, securing the football is so important. Good job Birds! I hope both sides earn a rematch in Ft. Thomas.
  17. Congratulations Highlands and its fan base. You should be very proud of those kids today - they played turnover free football and found a way to beat their rival on the road. Not an aesthetically pleasing game, but fun to watch two storied rivals compete. It's why I love high school sports.
