Median Power Rankings by Class - Last 5 Yrs


Recommended Posts

Done a lot of analysis on this one as well over the past 17 years. I'm absolutely positive if Pinkos, Massey, etc. were to perform the same exercise, their charts would look very similar.  

Class 5 Yr Avg
8A 127.80
6A 126.86
7A 126.77
5A 122.96
3A 122.30
4A 114.58
1A 110.11
2A 101.82

Actually only slightly.  A lot less than most people would imagine. It's not even worth charting. If we remove Madison County from 1A, the 5 year number drops from 110.11 to 109.69. And while Madison County is surely the most dominant team in 1A, the balance of the class is steady. Unlike 2A where the bottom half of the class is more on par with large school Freshman or JV teams. That's not a slight to Champagnat, University Chr, Victory Chr and some others who obviously have some pretty good programs, so please I mean no harm by that comment. But the fact still remains. The average 1A team (with or without Madison County) is still at least a touchdown better than the average 2A team.

1A schools are usually much larger than 2A, and even 3A schools.  Why they chose the #'s (1A, 2A, 3A, etc.) the way they did is so perfectly "FHSAA." (a synonym for careless).  So by the #'s, they should be a TD above.  That's similar to saying 4A schools are a TD favorite over 3A schools.  Would you agree?

Class 3A: 749 - 377; Class 2A: 376 - 56; Class 1A (rural): 600 – 100

Not necessarily a touchdown but it would seem logical to me that the only reason we would have eight classes based on size, is because the higher classes have a significant advantage in the level of performance due to their student population. Clearly, this is not the case. So this reasoning does not compute. Based on actual on-field performance, we are splitting hairs here. Especially with classes 6A through 8A. What is the real reason for having eight state champions? The data says there is no need for more than 5 or 6 at the very most. I'm just of the opinion that we need a complete overhaul of the current classification system. The options are out there, we either haven't found them or we have and won't implement amidst fear of change. Personally, my biggest fear is if a restructure were to occur, history will repeat itself and we will actually end up increasing the number of classifications. Quite possibly, I would find this ridiculous and would more than likely lose interest all together. In my perfect world, there would be no more than 4 classifications. Large Public, Large Private, Small Public, Small Private. Each would win a State Title. Four Champions, not eight.
