    Will this mean realignment? (again)

    If the private schools in the state are not allowed to compete for state championship, will the KHSAA have to do a new realignment for all sports. With more private schools being in certain districts and regions who would not be eligible to compete in the same post-season tournaments, would it not create disproportionate numbers of teams those district and regions? Would there be a need for 16 regions and 64 districts? Would the number of teams support that many dstricts and regions? While I am not necessarily against the seperation of publics and privates, I do feel that it is going to change the entire landscape of High School athletics throughout the state. If this is going to occur, I feel that Kentucky should go ahead and bite the bullitt and go to a 3 or 4 class system for all sports. If we are going to level the playing field for schools that feel that privates have an advantage, I feel we should level the playing field for all. I mean really what school has the bigger advantage, Lex Cath over Scott Co. or Scott Co. over Deming. What do you think?

    Yes, it will alo mean a Class system in basketball because there will not be enough teams to have 4, 4 team districts in each region.

    Just skip the districts and have regional tournaments with the 16 winners advancing to Rupp. It's not as complicated as everyone is trying to make it.

    Would you seed the regional? Blind draw? Its a lot more complicated than you think.

    This is all moot anyway.

    The KHSAA went against the majority vote the day after it passed. The Kentucky Board of Education will no doubt accept their recommendation, and then it's irrelevant.

    It's not that much more complicated than trying to decide if you are going to seed or draw in the district.

    You could seed by records against regional opponents (in a 14-team region that would mean 13 games), the power ratings or a committee or you could just draw like the All "A" does.

    That's probably true, but I can't help shooting down the "sky is falling, there will be no Sweet Sixteen" hysteria.
