    Orlando has a very nice facility but for the 1A championship it felt way to big and that was with two teams with fan bases that travel well. I feel that your team is in the championship game you attend no matter if it's in Pensacola or Key West (key west sounds good). Orlando is about 6 hours for us. Tally or Lake city are closer but a long drive for South Fla schools. Where you are playing your state championship game is a good problem to have.

    I don't think you could do it off roster size. That number is too easy to manipulate. Plus every school is a little different. There are some schools that make cuts, or limit their roster sizes, while others allow anyone who wants to be on the team to play.

    I think in 1A we should take the smallest 32 public schools that will give us all a 4 team dist.

    Sharkbait,
     
    First realize that my proposal doesn't affect 1A because they are so unique in their requirements.
    As for how quickly they move up or down, well that would depends on bad they did and how close were they to the cutoff lines. If we continued to use population and last 5 years of success.
    Or we can use simple measures like the total number of district wins over the past two seasons. The lowest team in each district moves down. The 16 teams that make it the furthest in the playoffs combined over the course of 2 years move up.

    Gator, the concern is not that it was only 50 kids or only 3 teams. The concern is that when questioned the FHSAA acts as if there is nothing to see and no one is above the limit when clearly they were and acknowledged it privately. It opens Pandora's box is all I am saying. Transparency is all I am looking for. As for your idea I think it is a well thought out and researched idea. I don't agree with it though. You are punishing kids, I'm sure not in purpose but it is none the less. Say you have a 5A school that has alot of success and maybe wins a state title. Five years go by and now they are 6A and they have a team just as good and the one that won state a few years back only this time they have to play Miami Central and 20 D1 kids. Well they get beat and had a great year but they will never be remembered like the team that won state. I realize what you are trying to accomplish with the idea but there is always two sides of the story. Appreciate the dialogue.

    With the population growth in the state we need a solution that is going to be long term and not one that has to be readdressed in a few years.  I think we may need to look at the rural school designation I know that's not popular and I don't like it myself.  Punishing successful teams by moving them up and rewarding losing teams by moving them down in competition is a terrible idea at that point why keep score.  Successful teams are already having to play tougher competition outside of their districts due to the difficulty in scheduling teams that know they don't stand a chance against you. With as many teams as there are now we may one day not have state champions just regional. I don't really have an answer just a few thoughts I wanted to share. Forgive me if this is kind of jumping around I'm trying to watch the Lightning.

    Yes three schools were allowed in, but a school that was in rual went on to win a state championship. The rual division was created so the small public schools didn't have to play the private school powers, and now we're concered about 50 kids over enrollment max. If the FHSAA gave everyone what they wanted then we would probably have more classes, then the complaints of having to many classes would really get fired up. It's not perfect and never will be.
     
    If some sort of point system is adopted, I love the fact that every game will mean something. I do think that some of the small school powers will have a little trouble scheduling but you will see great match ups from week 1 through Daytona.

    I know spring is not the best indicator of future success since some teams treat it like a championship while others are using it as a scrimmage but it is great to hear those pads popping again. A lot of the Friday games up here were moved to Monday due to weather so maybe I'll get to catch catch a couple next week. Dist 7 has always been solid but Trenton was so dominate last year that if they just keep focused they shouldn't have to worry.  I think the same teams that are normally in the hunt will be again up here. Taylor County might make some noise in 3A they sure had a lot of raw talent last year.

    You'll pass through Apalachicola on the way here lots of good seafood places,  We have quite a few new starters but had enough lopsided wins that most all of our boys have had quality minutes.  We should know a lot more by November.lol

    So I guess Trenton will struggle like last year lol. Such an impressive program I would have loved to see all of the champions from each class play Trenton would give them all a run for their money. I guess we will see y'all up here I think in September.

    They are choosing, to be independent. Probably more than half of those schools have no business playing varsity football anyway. Again how did it get to the point of people not wanting to play the same great teams every year?? The FHSAA has turned a blind eye to the NFC, University Christian and Trinity Christian's for all these years. If they would have ever addressed that issue so many years ago they may not have these issues today.
    Sure Josh, they don't have to offer a playoff, what would be the point of being a member of the FHSAA then? That is the silliest point I have ever heard.

    I agree with Tigerfan1 roster size is up to schools hiring the right coaches to get the players to come out. There are 1A schools less than 250 total students having to play 1A schools with 600 students as it is. I don't think any changes need to made until we see how the new school choice legislation shakes up the balance of power in all classes.
