  1. The opening speech from Patton No [one] ever won a war by dying for his country. You win a war by making the other poor, [dummy] die for his country....
  2. It's summer ball. The refs aren't going to make any more calls then they absolutely have to.
  3. So here's my question. Pseudoephedrine purchases are tracked and people are able to purchase only a certain quantity in a certain time frame. In a previous discussion about this it was also implied that if a person made several attempts to purchase outside of their buying window, their name could be turned over to law enforcement. We still have an issue with meth even with all those safeguards, but that's another discussion. Why couldn't that sort of system be set up for opioids?
  4. I realize that, said so in post #1. Just stating that the HI rules could make playing a game at 6 in August interesting.
  5. With KY’s heat rules a 6:00 kickoff in August could be interesting.
  6. Will be televised on ESPNU as the first half of a HSDH. Second game will be Mater Dei (CA) at Bishop Gorman (NV).
  7. All the court would say is that the kid is eligible, not that he/she has to pay. Just because they are ruled eligible doesn't mean the coach has to play them. If the coach truly has the best interests of ALL their players in mind why would he/she do anything that could potentially jeopardize all the team works for?
  8. If common sense regulation saves only 1 life isn't it worth it? I don't agree with that sentiment but we've certainly heard it used when we talk about limiting another constitutional right.
  9. Here's the thing I've never understood. The court ruling only says the player is eligible. That doesn't mean the school has to let the player play. People try to skirt the transfer rules then get butt hurt when the KHSAA rules against them. If they fight the KHSAA ruling in court there's no way as a coach I let the kid play.
  10. Beyond blessed to be able to announce that I've committed to commenting on this. IMVHO it's just an attention grab just like all the announcements about commitments and offers which mean absolutely nothing. I saw a kid on Twitter announce that he was beyond blessed to be invited to pay hundreds of dollars to attend some camp.
  11. First round games Monday at 11 AM Central @ Male Ballard @ Trinity (playing at Bellarmine U) Seneca @ Eastern St. Xavier @ Manual Semis and finals at UofL Tuesday and Thursday
  12. If I remember correctly when he won the Best Director Oscar for The Piano he of course wasn’t in LA to accept it and whoever did implied that he was being unfairly persecuted.
  13. I still have a bit of an issue with the seeming hypocrisy involved in this now. Roman Polanski plead guilty to unlawful sex with a minor in 1977. When he learned that it was likely he would get prison time rather then probation he skipped the country. He continued to work and even won an Academy Award in 2002. In 2018 in the wake of Bill Cosby and the #MeToo movement he was expelled from the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Why did it take them 40 years?
  14. I believe the only season he actually read the votes on the island was the very first when Richard Hatch won. Season 2 when Tina won they did a silly thing where they had her and Donaldson dressed in the same clothing as at final tribal and transition straight to the reunion from the island even though it was very apparent they had cleaned up. From then on they gave up on that silliness. I put the below before I saw someone post just about the same thing. I believe that in every tribal council Probst and production look at the votes and put them in the order they want to read them
  15. Freedom of Speech only applies to the government preventing the speech. An employer on the other hand has every right to discipline someone for saying or doing something that they deem inappropriate. The NFL is an employer, nothing more and NFL players are employees. Just like any other employee they are subject to rules imposed by their employer.
  16. I honestly believe it starts on the court/field/pitch, etc. Coaches at all levels in all sports seem to think that they are the next coming of Bobby Knight and are on officials constantly. That translates into players thinking they can mouth at the official and likewise spectators. Start penalizing them more. I was at a charity flag football game between Sacred Heart and Assumption recently and the way the "coaches" were screaming at the officials you would have thought it was the Super Bowl. I am fully in agreement that spectators should be on a very short leash. All their admission
  17. If the parents were negligent in some way letting this animal get the guns then I have no issue with civil and even criminal penalties for them. Part of responsible gun ownership is storing the safely.
  18. Run 2 meets on Saturday. It's been done in the past. And I think is ludicrous that basketball teams miss almost an entire week of school.
  19. Or instead of missing school days schedule the state meets on Saturday and Sunday.
  20. I don't disagree. Way to many parents now give their kids the impression that the entire world revolves around them. They don't tell them no and cater to all of their wants. Then when something happens and they don't get their way they don't know how to deal with it. They lash out, the vast majority are no where near this level.
  21. Only the gov can call a special session and since he adamantly opposes any expanded gaming there’s no way he will. Once again Kentucky misses the boat.
  22. Laural said she knew she probably couldn't beat Dominick or Wendell in the final and yet she voted to keep them??? Do I keep the people I can trust or the people I can beat??? How is that even a question? Right now she and Donathan are riding coat-tails to 3rd place. If both Dom and Wendell are in the F3 one of them wins.
  23. Districts are supposed to be geographic. That's what we've been told in every iteration of district alignment in recent memory. The fact that Trinity, Eastern and Ballard now have one less "assigned" game makes scheduling problematic for all of them. Very few team in KY will voluntarily play Trinity and even if they would this game will be in a "district week" so most other schools in KY will already have games. Trinity can afford the hit, Ballard and Eastern not so much.
