9-0-1 teams had missed playoffs in the past. One example: Plano tied #1 Sherman in '77, 14-14. Sherman 9-0-1 stayed home and Plano won state.

Going through the DCTF archives and doing some old UIL realignments...fascinating to see old schools that no longer exist, schools that are now huge that were once tiny, and some of the really quirky

Makes you appreciate G. A. Moore win total at Celina and Pilot Point .

Matt, do you have any record of Class B during these alignments? I'm pretty sure that's where Crandall was at the time.

I do now...but it'll take quite some time for me to catch up

Yes District Champion was the only playoff team. In theory a 9-1 team could miss the playoffs.

I was about to say that...I remember hearing of some GREAT teams that yep, never made the playoffs. Pure suckage...the reverse of now where everyone's a winner.

1968-1969 realignment

 

 

when you look at some of these giant (13 & 14 teams) districts...you could have possibly had 3 teams be 10-0 and I bet it would have caused chaos at playoff time breaking that tie by points or first downs, etc to even get 2 teams from the district.

West Hardin went 18-2 over a 2 year stretch during the late 50's or early 60's and never made the playoffs........

they were split into zones and last week of the season would play for the playoff spot....14 team district; 2 7 team zones..play 3 non-district games...play your six zone games...last week of the season Zone A Winner plays Zone B winner for the playoff spot

Kinda like a playoff game within itself. I wonder how many rematches happened.

I doubt many because non-district games typically weren't played with the other zone

In 1980 our district played a double round robin schedule.......Colmesneil beat High Island at home and lost to them on the road......Both finished 9-1......flipped for first.......Colmesneil went two rounds while High Island sat at home......lol.....

Did the winner from both sides have to play each other in a championship game to see who got in? If it was a 12 team district?

Zones were pretty popular in all sports back then.

I've been researching Longview baseball results this month, and have found a lot of times they did zone districts for baseball as well. One was Longview/Marshall/Texas High in the North zone, Lee/Lufkin/John Tyler in the South zone.

I find it extremely fascinating.

I am guessing some of these schools in Tyler and Marshall were the African American schools like Tyler Scott and Marshall school right? 

Tyler Emmett Scott and Marshall Pemberton were the 4A schools yes.

Only lasted two years with the 4A schools however.

Were districts allowed to determine if they wanted to have a zone or not when they didn’t absolutely need one? I would imagine UIL wouldn’t really bother to zone a 6 team district themselves, though they might have because of all the travel.

I think back then the UIL mandated the zones
