TAPPS realignment is out.

Going back to two divisions. No complaining when you wind up in a district with someone with a bigger enrollment :)

I have always been a fan of the 2 divisions. I'm glad they went back.

21 teams in Division 1.

41 teams in Division 2.

I would think that they could have made them a little more equal. I don't know the rationale behind what they decided so maybe they couldn't have.

8 Districts, I would imagine the top 2 in each district make the playoffs. 16 teams make playoffs, 4 weeks of playoffs, nobody gets a first round bye.

That's just a guess.

Still quite a few teams to choose from, but a little better.
I am curious to hear why there is such a big difference

It's based on the school's listed enrollment. Don't have the cutoffs listed yet. I think they would go to 16 teams in Div II at least. Perhaps they could do away with the bye week in the regular season, expand the field further, and just start a week earlier. I wouldn't want to be making these decisions. Prototype darned if you do, darned if you don't scenario. Even out the numbers you'll have folks moaning about how unfair it is they're in the same division as schools with a much bigger enrollment. Set strict size limits and folks complain about limited playoff spots.

The good part about the larger districts is it makes non-district scheduling a lot easier. Depending on your location (Houston area where 6 man is not common in the public school ranks) It can be a life saver.

They'll probably have 32 out of 41 in the playoffs. LOL

How about 24. Top 3 from each district make it, district champs get a bye, 2nd and 3rd place teams from different districts face off. Gets plenty of teams in and still makes it competitive.

I'd like some rational on the numbers across the board. Why is Midland Trinity, Waco Vanguard and Giddings still in the sixman ranks, but in basketball they are being bumped up to 4a.

They are going up to 6 divisions in basketball in other sports. 4A is like the old 3A. Giddings will always be a special case as there's only a limited number of kids who will be eligible to play at any time.

I will just say that our Football Coaches are not happy with the line up. Seems to be too few in Div 1 and too many in Div 2. The district we have been ailigned with is good but goodness gracious by jimminy...
