The reason why 90 percent of the blowouts are in the 2000’s is because the classes are grossly watered down.
There is no freaking reason Booker T, MNW and Miami Central are in different classes. It’s a damn shame
It is certainly not the number one reason why Gateway schools have had very little success. It has much more to do with a lack of coaching stability (often times due to incompetent administration, for instance the Jackson coach Atwater being fired after greatly improving the team)
