winner, the above statement is precisely why I have a problem. You are stating by going to a 3-class system, inferior players and/or teams will be participating at state. Why? Inferior to who? The NBA, college, class A? It depends where you draw the line. They will be going to state because they are the best team/players at that level. If Cavalier makes it to the state championship game in football this year, since they are class A and not AAA, they shouldn't be there? Your logic doesn't make sense to me.
Of course it makes sense...Cavalier won 48 games in a row (using them as an example because you did, not boasting) and three championships at AA when their enrollment was more inline with A Schools.....WHY??? because of the standards, the ethics, the culture, the heritage, the legacy....(see, these are all sports associated terms) and last but not least The program
Size (in this case or in Baketball in ND doesn't matter as much as the three party backers thinks it does....teach them how to play the sport....and take the ones who love playing it and play them....get the favorites off the floor and play the ones that should be playing....and half the battle is solved.
Your points are valid for any system and era, period. The good programs do that at all levels and always have. But no matter how much you follow that, you still will not compete with larger, bigger programs. So, where do you draw the line?
You didn't answer my question. If Cavalier makes it to the championship in football, are you saying they shouldn't be there because they are not AAA?
They wouldn't make it there, so i dont have to worry about it....and they Should Not or Better not (for the benefit of the sport) start building on a plan to help them make it there....so, there's your answer.
