FYI - Division 1-AA doesn't exist any more....There are now 3 divisions....Division 1, Division 1 - FBS, Division 1 - FCS...I believe these were changed around 2006, so you boys should brush up on your knowledge.

Additionally, EKU is and "FBS" program, and Morehead State is "FCS", non-scholarship...some of the other above mentioned schools are still simply NAIA.

The most recent successful football players from this area (my memory only) would be Chris Jennings (Fairview), Arliss Beech (Ashland) and Jeremy Sheffey (Boyd County)...all 3 played large Division 1, and all 3 at least had a brief sniff of the NFL
Nope. There's only two subdivisions of D1. Both give scholarships, but FBS can give aid to 85 players per team. FCS can provide 63 full scholarships total but may split them up among a max of 85 players (e.g., 41 full rides and 44 half-rides). Those two subdivisions:

FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision), schools that play in Bowl Games AKA former Division I-A. UK, Ohio St, Marshall, etc.

FCS (Football Championship Subdivision), schools that are eligible for the FCS playoffs AKA former Division I-AA. Morehead St, EKU, Youngstown St, etc. Marshall was in this division when it was I-AA until the mid 1990s.

Going to a bigger School doesn't always help. Look at Ashland! O'bryan was a good player and where did he go?? Georgetown !! The same school that Devon Turner from that little school of Fairview is going to. So it shows that it doesn't matter where you play. If you can play , they will find you. Nice try Ashland lovers. Hahahahaha

There are 3 Divisions....I did mis-state it, but there is the "non-football" school division as well. And by the way, the Division you're in limits scholarships, but doesn't force an institution to provide them...ie Morehead State - they are a non-scholarship program even though they are FCS.

Notice all that (bitw) does is call names. Fact is fairview has signed to play the tomcats next season. Whatch how high you eagles sore when they play real teams with real players. Your lil thug recruits won't know what to do. I've heard from men at work that these recruits were bench Warner's when they left their old schools. Said "they were bottom lot players" we have talent like that riding our benches.

If your kid is a stud, and I mean dominating a game type player, the kind that has the talent to play somewhere like OSU for example...do you send him to fairview or do you send him to Ironton? As a recruiter when you look at the tape, and the tape don't lie, do you have more interest in a kid that rushes for 2000, 20 tds at fairview, or a kid with the same stats at Ironton. If you honestly tell me that has no effect on a kid being recruited, your insane. Look at all the drama at the NFL combine. Dez Bryant was asked if his mom was a prostitute for gods sake....every little detail is under a microscope. If my kid is mega talented...I buy a house in Covington and see what he does at St X. What's one of the big knocks of NFL players on draft day? They went to a small school and didn't play good competition so teams are afraid to take a chance on them early or at all...same goes for major NCAA programs.

When did thus happen? Seen a schedule and didn't see Ashland on it. I hope it is true!!! I love seeing local teams play.

Kentucky is Division 1-A, Eastern Kentucky is 1-AA. The 1 stands for division 1. The difference is the number of scholarships. 1A/1AAboth require being cleared thru the NCAA clearinghouse. All other classes do not. Pikeville is Div 2, Georgetown is NAIA. I hope this helps.
I know what it means. It means the differrence in talent level between, say an Eastern Kentucky as opposed to an Alabama. It means the difference between a good football player and a VERY good football player.

Im not sure you know about all the players coming next year, but my nephew is already a star at his school of 1800+. I will promise that he will be all over the front page of the Ashland paper. He hates his current coach, like 95% of his team, and thinks Fairview will be a good fit. Some other kids might also transfer with him.
Is he getting a substantial pay increase for coming or stock options?

Hopefully this is not true, because it will ruin that kids chance at getting to a big school and be taken seriously. Fairview sends kids to places like Georgetown, morehead, etc...
No team like OSU is gonna look at a LB, winning state or not, that plays against teams like Lewis county, phelps, etc. There is just no way to gauge true talent because the competition is trash. I have always believed to be considered the best you need to play against the best. I would send him to ironton, Ashland, or somewhere similar. At least he can show what he can do against 4-a talent. And if you try to argue fairview plays elite teams, stop it. I hope I live to see the day a kid from fairview makes it to a top 25 team and is a factor. And before you go saying chris Jennings, he went to JUCO then transferred to Arizona. I know he played 1 season in the NFL and scored a TD against Pittsburgh. But as I said, he had to transfer to get to Arizona. These kids as sad as it is won't be recruited by elite college programs due to their level of competition.
Dude what ever. We play Hazzard, Pike Central, and we playing a damn good team from Ohio. Also, we are looking at playing JC. I bet you're another tomcat bashing on Fairview. "Typical Jock"

If you are playing a damn good team it's only because you have to. Everyone we beat to death the last few years is tired of it and will not continue their home and away contracts. Get the tour busses ready, it's going to get to the point the only way we can schedule a sure win is to travel eighteen hours to do it. You surely don't expect them to schedule someone out of district who could actually beat them do you?

Let's see Boyd County and Greenup quit playing us cause they couldn't win. Russell won't play, Ashland wants to play on their terms so hmmm don't leave alot of choices.

Plain English so you can understand; everyone quit playing us because we knew they were down that year, got them on the schedule for just that reason, and kicked the shit out of them to the point of embarrassment when it was totally unnecessary. Get it now?
