High school notebook: New mercy rule for football draws mixed reaction

In 2001 the Kentucky High School Athletic Association adopted a mercy rule for football: a running clock any time the point differential reached 45 points in the second half. In 2013, the KHSAA is showing even more mercy. This season the clock keeps ticking when the margin reaches 36 points.
