    What a joke! Now a state title won't mean as much, and all but just a couple of teams per class will make the playoffs, LOL..

    Talk about watering down a system, KY doesn't have enough teams for this, it would be better off having just 3 classes the way it is now.

    So what there are only 35 fairly evenly divided teams...Patriots won the Super Bowl but heck there are only 32 evenly divided teams.

    One early starting point for drawn up classes and districts had 8 districts per class. Each district would have 4 or 5 teams. They are thinking that 4 will make the playoffs from each district. Yes, that would mean 32 of 35 teams if I'm following their thinking.

    Again, this is all very early and subject to much change.

    No offense, but I look at 5A and think state title appearance every season. There's got to be a better way. I want our accomplishments to mean something like they do now. 5 classes I could except, but 6? This sucks. I hope it never passes.

    How much bigger are HC and NC than Beechwood, Bellevue, Ludlow, Dayton? One initial proposal is that HC and NC would be in 2A while the others would be in 1A.

    There'd be about 10 Louisville teams in the top class: St Xavier, Trinity, PRP, Manual, Eastern, Seneca, Ballard, Male, Butler, and Southern.
    Fern Creek would stay, Warren and Dixie would be pushed down a level though.

    If they'd be having four teams per district make the playoffs... how many districts would there be?

    Assuming no one were playing up, for example, look at the top class.

    10 teams in Louisville, and about 5 more in surrounding counties (like Hardin and Shelby.) You'd make those into 2 districts.

    That's half of 6A right there. Then I guess you'd have 2 more exceptionally unbalanced and geographically incohesive districts for West and East.

    I would expect to see HHS (they will choose to play up), CCH, Scott, and Holmes as a legitimate NKY district.

    In THAT case...

    2 Louisville districts:

    West

    St. Xavier
    Butler
    PRP

    East
    Seneca
    Ballard
    Eastern
    Trinity
    Shelby County

    Unsure

    Male
    Manual
    Southern


    At least 2 of the 'unsure' would have to go in the west. Southern should be one of them, to even out the districts by splitting Male and Manual.

    Beechwood, Ludlow, Dayton, and Bellevue are deffinetly 1A. I suspect that NCC and HC are 2A with this proposal alon with Lloyd.
