The main thing I agree with is that I wish the NDHSAA would get out of the box of wanting an even number of teams in all the upper classes. The level you play at should be based on school size, not some arbitrary number of teams needed to fill a class.

I'd start with defining how big a school should be to be able to comfortably play 11 man vs needing to be 9 man. Once that is decided, every school above that line would be 11 man and you can divide the 11 man teams however you wish. And if you wind up with 15 AAA teams or 29 A teams, then that should be acceptable.

Did that huge mega co-op of tiny schools around Cooperstown breakup? If so, what are they doing?

Yes. From what I've heard GCC is going 9man and BCN is cooping with VC. You'd think BCN would have enough kids to field a 9man team, though. Haven't heard anything on Midkota

I would say there is no way FW stays in 11man. They will drop to a JV schedule or go the 6man route. They are just starting to build their program again. I also think Drake-Anamoose will either coop with Velva or Harvey or go the 6man route as well.

Also curious to what BCN, Drayton, and Midkota will end up doing.

You said "build their program again." Were they ever good in FB?

Larimore has 13 or 14 kids out this year with 7 seniors. I'm not sure what their plans are next year.

They have never made the playoffs, but had one year with 3 wins. By build their program, I meant simply competing at the varsity level and having the chance to win a game or two. If you have 12-15 kids that are all fresh/soph you don't have that chance. You got up to 11man and that all goes out the window.

What's the story there? They have plenty of kids in the school, why the low participation? Just a couple year dip or are their JH numbers low, too?

"Blame" Bismarck St. Mary's...Shanley made the decision to go AAA and the thought was St. Mary's would make the move also; they said no...so next up is Jamestown.

St. Mary’s would rather travel to Belcourt, Stanley, and New Town and win by 40 than play the BisMan schools in their backyard and be in competitive games. Kudos to Shanley for some self awareness and opting up.
