    I hate the “They always win, and we can’t, so let’s change the rules” mentality.

    Any school that works hard at building a program can potentially win a championship. Might not have the numbers or the fancy stadiums, but hard work and great heart go a long way. How insulting to say “you will never be as good as them, so you guys play down here.”

    Looking at the poll results and who voted how has be wondering something. Can the people that voted maybe (including 2 that I believe are private school fans) tell us what circumstances would make you say this?

    Ironic that there is all the talk of too many classes, and yet a thread about adding a new class.

    Maybe you have an open division where best private and public schools can opt to play and then the rest get divided into classes by enrollment. Just speculation because will never happen due to administrative costs.

    Not debating you, but giving you another viewpoint. I grew up in a county school system that had at that time had 9 high schools, but there was also an independent school district in the county as well. You could easily tell just by the condition of the buildings & grounds that the county schools struggled, while the independent schools did not. Mind you this was just that side of the equation. When you discuss athletics, none of the county facilities were even close to offering what the independent school had for their teams. It was evident in stadium & gym conditions, condition of uniforms, etc. This was the 80's & early 90's. I can remember that my high school football team in 1992 was wearing the same uniforms from 1980 & the same with basketball, the uniforms were nearly as old. Contrast that with the independent & they were always wearing the best of the best, new equipment, etc.....

    Now saying all that, it comes down to this. We still went out & competed against them when we played them. We weren't playing them to lose, we played them to win. We never did get over the hump in football, honestly there was only 1 of the county teams that gave them trouble, but we would at least split with them in basketball if not sweep them in the home & home. We always wanted to beat the city kids.

    Just my 2cents, not that its worth that much!
