Thing is though, does Grandfalls- Royalty win a state championship much less get to the big game without the division split? And the answer is noBefore the division split, old District 6 consisted of: Sanderson, Grandfalls, Buena Vista, Marathon, Balmorhea, Fort Davis, Sierra Blanca and Dell City. In 1992 it also included Fort Hancock.
I like it the way it is. I really think combining all schools will kill some D2 programs, some (in certain areas of the state) will be placed in a district where they would very rarely have a chance at a winning record, much less a playoff berth.Thank you for your input. District 1 in D1/D2 is great example. I agree that the UIL would not take 3, most likely 4 granted the 8 team district hypothetical. The cutoff number for D1/D2 pretty much raises every time realignment happens. 104.5 may jump to 114.5 eventually... who knows. My question to you is would you rather have 16, 8 team districts with 4 going to the playoffs, where the best will eventually meet up with the best? Or have a D1/D2 division with multiple 3 and 4 team districts, teams having 1-2 wins making the playoffs and getting slaughtered in 1st round?
If we go to one division in six-man, would the 45ing stop?
Strictly from a fan perspective the split if awful. Both 6-Man games being 45ers is an bad look.
The answer is yes. After GR lost that 1st game to WV, they turned into a different animal. They had the 2 best backs in 1A that season and it wasn't close.Thing is though, does Grandfalls- Royalty win a state championship much less get to the big game without the division split?

I agree they had some dudes, not sure they could have gotten by Crowell that year though (I think that’s who came out of the west in D1 that year).The answer is yes.

D2 Follett beat D1 Crowell that year and lost to Grandfalls in the D2 semis. I think Grandfalls definitely had a chance against Crowell.I agree they had some dudes, not sure they could have gotten by Crowell that year though (I think that’s who came out of the west in D1 that year).
I wouldn’t say 2A-6A. Most of the 5A-6A are consolidated to the urban centers. However, I do know a few 2A-4A examples where it’s “make your playoff shirts” in August.I know there are several 2A-6A teams that make the playoffs with 1 or 2 wins (even a couple with no wins), and they use the system you want to use. Not sure that's a good argument.
There’s 3 teams I really want to transition to Sixman (and they all have 1A numbers)I just wish some of those small school 11man teams would bite the bullet and play sixman.
Glad we all got on the same page. I agree 100% with having the games at AT&T and I like the split. Sometimes the state games are one sided in all classes. I saw great games in the playoffs. Keep sharing your knowledge and personal involvement. Thank you.You are absolutely correct, i meant the first time that all of them were played there the same weekend. I didn't clarify that, my apologies.
