6 Classes in football

Page 8 of The way I understood it there would be an A1 and an A2, then a AA1 and AA2 then a 3A1 and a 3A2. Three classes with two divisions. I am sure there will... 176 comments | 6228 Views | Go to page 1 →

    How about 1 class, 1 champion.

    Ive always said that the Lexington,Louisville,and some suburban Cincinnati schools need to have their own class and play for their own championship. The much smaller East Ky schools would have a better chance at adavancing instead of having to play glorified 2a & 3a schools. This would truly bring balance back to the playing field in this state. Ohio has a similar system with the Cleveland,Columbus and Cinci schools all in their own division I beleive. I say why not?

    6 classes is part of my suggestion for the prop 20 argument.

    You would assign a point value for each issue/factor that effects the "balanced playing field" question - such as; open boundarry, scholarships, # of transfers accepted in a certain time period/season/calender year(this would account for publics who "get" players), same sex schools, etc. [you get the idea].

    When a school scores a certain point value they get bumpred up to a higher class due to the alleged advantages.

    This is just the basic idea & it only applies to football (for the moment) but I think it's a very valid suggestion to consider & enable us to keep the ONE playoff system.

    Cheers, Woody Jr

    P.S., I want credit for this if adopted - or at least call it the Woody Plan

    That is one plan I will take off work and march on. Your reward for doing well is to be moved up a class? :creepy:

    Some of you get it and some of you don't. We are talking about a state championship. It is supposed to be hard to accomplish. Why water it down to make some kids feel good. Be happy knowing you worked as hard as possible to accomplish however far you get, but realistically, one should be the best of the best to be a legitamate state championship.

    If one wants to feel dominance over their particular area, schedule rival teams, or be proud of a district championship. So you win your district, that means you are the best in that area. What does it matter if you win a diluted state championship? Nothing, but it means everything if you win a real one.

    I could have dreamed this, but in the '70s and early '80s didn't Louisville area teams play for their own title? Seems there was 4A then 4A Louisville??

    The Louisville team might have went on to play the State 4A team for the overall championship.

    It also seems as though most, if not all Louisville teams were in 4A, again could be dreaming........

    What is wrong for allowing kids a realistic chance to win a championship in the class level they are at. " Private" schools have quite few advantages that make it hard for a Public school to compete at that level year after year. Getting to win a championship in the system that is in place in unfair to 90% of the schools in the playoffs. District and rival games are great but all schools that make the playoffs should not have to be just satisfied, they should be able to compete on a level playing field.

    Why can't private schools with quite a few advantages win in 1A. 2A, and 3A?

    So compete, but if you don't win tough, it is life.

    Exactly!

    There's no such thing as a completely level playing field. If there was, the games would all end in a tie!

    I think sort of right. I believe the state 4A and the Lville 4A played each other for the over all 4A. Basically Lville was in its own regions...which geographically it should be. I think they split them so there could be a possibility of an all Lville final and draw a bigger crowd.

    No, they split them because the rest of the state complained that a Louisville school always got into the state finals, thinking that splitting them up would make it so two out-in-the-state schools could meet in the finals.
