  1. Big time hire. Owensboro Catholic has been quite good for some time. This hire is not unlike when O-Cath hired Tim Riley for basketball. Two great decisions!
  2. These are the types of things you rarely think about in single-school districts. I’d say Douglass may have better luck landing a game on October 8. Have they advertised to potential out-of-state opponents?
  3. They’ve ebbed and flowed. At times they’ve looked okay and at times not. I don’t believe they’ll beat Bardstown but I also didn’t expect them to beat Collins.
  4. I think the musical chairs got to be too tough. This seems like what @ChiefSmoke mentioned when he said Tackett and the KHSAA were willingly to work with the coaches association on scheduling. I think it’s the right move. It will be interesting to see how it effects RPI later, although RPI only affects eight teams per class - I’m sure they could modify so everyone is calculated only ten games if necessary.
  5. Crittenden County, an all sports member of District 5 and semi-regular football opponent of Trigg County, is also open on October 8 and searching for a game.
  6. Could be possible that this move is being made to set up a rescheduled Larue game on October 8. That’s fall break for Larue and they typically don’t play that week. We’ll see.
  7. RPI will play a big role in who gets to play at home. Boyle's large-school heavy schedule will probably help them get a home game.
  8. Holmes, Scott, Boyd County, Rowan County, Harrison County - one of those will be a district winner and like you said that third round matchup will be brutal.
  9. Horrible quality but the first Norm MacDonald joke I remember. I was a freshman in high school and was allowed to stay up and watch Saturday Night Live for the first time in my life. Norm was the best.
  10. Belfry’s problem is not unlike Johnson Central’s - they are always a state title contender, it’s a million miles from anywhere, and nobody but the absolute best teams will take a call to schedule a game against them. It shows up really bad when the talent takes a dip.
  11. Yeah, in Illinois they aren’t official. The AP classes and ranks them based on their enrollment, but teams aren’t officially put in a class until the postseason starts (teams have to qualify and then they’re grouped on enrollments of who qualifies).
  12. That step is next to impossible in college football. Firing a coach after three appearances in the semifinals/finals without a title would mean every team outside of Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State should fire their coach. Is Oklahoma firing Lincoln Riley?
  13. Two playoff berths and a BCS championship game is underperforming?
  14. A few notes: Cahokia has an enrollment of 769 students per the IHSA (https://www.ihsa.org/Schools/School-Directory?url=/data/school/c.htm). Assuming half are boys, that would mean a male enrollment of 385. That puts their enrollment very close to Elizabethtown and Franklin-Simpson in Kentucky, so they would be right on the fence of 3A/4A in our classification. Illinois doesn't sort their teams until the playoffs (a novel idea that I proposed for Kentucky on this site and to the KHSAA a couple of years ago without luck), so looking at Calpreps, you only see the rankings of all schools
  15. Too many picks but that’s a good win all things considered.
  16. Touchdown LCA. 37-7 early fourth quarter. I’m done with reports. LCA has looked very good. This was never really in doubt, even when it was close in the first half. CAL is good but not remotely in this league. I don’t know what that says about 3A, either.
  17. LCA blocks a punt and runs it in for a touchdown. 30-7 LCA, late third. Over.
  18. LCA intercepts CAL and marches into the end zone on several successful runs. LCA up 23-7 with 4:20 left in the third quarter.
  19. Impressive opening drive by LCA, going about 65 yards in four minutes capped by a short Moore to Selby touchdown pass. LCA 16-7 mid-third.
  20. My opinion as well. LCA hasn’t attempted anything downfield. They clearly don’t trust Moore to do that. He directed a nice drive there, though, aided by a nice hook and lateral on the far side of the field.
