  1. Wow! Good stuff, Purple. I'm not convinced I'll become a fan (I don't really love any motorsports) but I'm going to give it a try based on this recommendation.
  2. Really opens the door for Fleming County, who should be a prohibitive favorite against both Powell and Pendleton. Their game with Mason was a 7-6 final in the regular season.
  3. Is there only one driver in Formula 1? I ask only because every Sunday the ticker says "Lewis Hamilton wins XXX Event." Formula 1/Grand Prix driving is boring to me no matter what, but it can't be enjoyable if the same person wins every time.
  4. They made the agreement almost a year ago with the KHSAA to replace Jenkins and automatically take the 4th spot. I'm guessing, had they known the toll Covid would take on football this fall, they probably would have asked to let the RPI seed!
  5. 5 - Caldwell County (77) 4 - DeSales 3 - Wayne County 2 - Hopkinsville 1 - Highlands
  6. I think a win for Sayre is avoiding a running clock. I like what they are doing at Sayre, and they should probably be the 3rd seed (it would be interesting to see where they are vis-a-vis Hazard), but expecting a win at Pikeville is likely unrealistic.
  7. Evangel Christian has played football on two separate stints over the years. They were 2-9 in 1976 and 0-9 in 1977. The program restarted in 2002 and lasted until 2008, compiling a 3-52 record (a forfeit win over Beth Haven in 2002 and two more victories over Beth Haven in 2004).
  8. Thanks for the clarification. Had heard a couple different stories on the move.
  9. Wow. Odd to leave before the playoffs. Evangel had a program for a few years with little success. They seem to be making a big push for athletics at the school.
  10. Has anyone ever watched an 8-man or 6-man game in person? I'd love to do a weekend trip to Texas one fall and watch a 6-man game and a game at one of the huge 6A schools to see the difference.
  11. Yes. I believe their last season was 1974. But Pennington has absolutely built from scratch.
  12. Same. I only see two potentially capable teams: Beechwood and Covington Catholic. RPI based travel works against Beechwood and I’m not certain CovCath has the athletes to compete with the best in 5A.
  13. Thanks. I've only ever used Spence and I-275. Wasn't sure what might be there to help locals traveling between states.
  14. How many bridge options besides Brent Spence can get you from Ohio to Kentucky? Anything besides I-275?
  15. That bridge has been a potential disaster for years. Been lots of promises but nothing has ever happened. Maybe this will be the impetus to get it replaced.
  16. Not sure I follow here. Why is a team called the Packers using a javelina or boar as their mascot?
  17. All of this is true. College athletics are very regional, very tribal. We most like the teams that are close to home or where we attended school (in some cases both). We will always watch their games. The time zone thing is important, however, because folks in the Eastern Time Zone sit down to relax at about 7pm, which just so happens to be when eastern teams are on television. I'm not particularly interested in Virginia/Boston College, but I'm watching it. UCLA/Washington, which will probably be a good game, doesn't come on until 10:30 when I'm gone to bed.
  18. Exactly. And let’s all remember every “doom and gloom” prediction about the KHSAA this fall has been wrong. How much time have people here and online spent certain the KHSAA was going to do one thing and they did another?
  19. Easier said that done. Quite possibly the best team in Class 3A is currently ranked 14th in the RPI because they were only able to play five games and at least three RPI-boost games were canceled due to Covid issues. I'm reluctant to deny a team an opportunity for a state championship, especially when they did nothing to cost themselves that chance. I'm okay dropping from 32 for one season, but I wouldn't go below sixteen teams.
  20. Because I'd argue the district should be decided on games played throughout the regular season. Deciding a football district champion during the postseason has only happened three times in KHSAA history - 2006, 2007, last year, and now this year.
  21. Provided the postseason is played, I suspect the champion of each class will be found in the Top 5 their respective Bluegrasspreps class rankings right now.
  22. They are on Calpreps for the full 223 team statewide rankings. They weren’t supposed to be eligible for the playoffs until 2021 but were allowed to take the fourth spot in District 7 after Jenkins dropped their varsity program.
  23. It had to feel good for the DeSales kids to finally get to play.
  24. RPI is extremely positive for Bryan Station. Provided no upsets, a third round home game with Dunbar, and a semifinal that is at worst a road trip to North Hardin. Anything else would be at home. The Defenders have put themselves in a good postseason position.
