Kentucky High-school Football, Um ... Wow

KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett, in a press release, on the Class 2A football semifinal "won" by Louisville DeSales against Murray on Nov. 28:

"There are simply no do-overs when the human error element has entered into the picture in this manner in athletics. In every game there are moments where coaches would like to have a second chance to call a different play, players might like to have another chance to execute the block, run or pass; but those opportunities don't exist. I know for certain, the officials would like to have a ‘do-over' here, but there simply is no administrative remedy. To replay any situation or start over from another point would be to commit another wrong, and unfairly affect the other team as well."
