Friday football digest, week 13
Is this thing on? Apparently so.
No one told me when the issues with our hosting server were finally resolved, and frankly I had gotten tired of checking in every day only to find the same “we’re sorry” message.
I apologize to those of you who also kept checking regularly. I don’t have a good explanation for the prolonged outage, and I can’t say it won’t happen again, but I welcome you back.
When we were last operational, the regular season had just ended. Now we’re at week two of the playoffs, which brings with it the first real degree of unpredictability the season has seen in some time.
Has Danville improved enough to take down the team that knocked it off last season — and give coach Sam Harp his 300th victory? The Admirals are better, but Green County is still pretty good, too, and the Dragons have to be confident at home after their win in Danville last year.
Three hours or so to the east, will Garrard County be able to give Breathitt County a battle for the second straight year. The Golden Lions have been the area’s most wildly unpredictable team this season, but it’s hard to see them containing Breathitt well enough to win.
And somewhere in the middle will be Boyle County, in what is easily one of the most predictable games of the second round.
Since I’ve already tipped my hand, I’ll go ahead and make this week’s predictions official:
- Boyle County over West Jessamine.
- Breathitt County over Garrard County.
- Green County over Danville.
Two weeks ago: 2-1; season 41-10 (.804).
