    There was a well-publicized case of this same sort of crap in Guthrie, Kentucky, which ought to be appended to boots' optimal-places-to-get-an-ass-whipping list.

    No one with half a brain is really all that fooled.

    Uh, actually Kentucky was neither Union or Confederate. Had solders fight on both sides, but definitely more of a state with Confederate sympathies. Which is why people in the South don't consider Kentucky part of the south.

    But yeah, real proud to be from The Bluegrass State right now. Still lots of high schools with the Rebels mascot, too.

    They are the Rebels. There are at least 7 high schools (Allen Central, Louisville Atherton, Boone County in NKY, Boyle County, Casey County, Owen County, Todd County Central) and at least one middle school (East Hardin) that I know of. And most of the high schools mentioned either don't have any black players on the team or have just a few...except for Atherton.

    BTW, David School got beat by 97 this year (125-28)...so, suffice it to say, a forfeit looks better. They joined the KHSAA two or three years ago, and have yet to win a darn game.
