Knowing that the UIL is creating a AAAAAA, and every classification will in essence move up an A.  My question is about the present AA and AAA alignments.  If I understand this correctly, the new AAAA which is now AAA is going to divide in division 1 and 2 like the present AA and A.  Right now, there are not nearly as many AAA teams as in other classifications.  Does this mean that division 2 of what is AAA next year, drop their number to about 415 to get more schools into division 2.

 

2014 - 2016

 

AAA formerly AA Division 1 , goes from 290-410

 

AAAA formerly AAA goes division 2 enrollments from 411 - 700

 

                                          division 1 goes from 700 - 1100

 

 

What do you guys think could happen

This is just my opinion (and like bellybuttons, everyone has one) I think they'll raise the upper limit and some teams that are in current 4A will drop down to current 3A, the new 4A.

Per the last realignment packet, there are fewer 1As playing 11 man than there are 3As. Are they planning to junk the two division system already in place in 1A? Because your plan would require the 1A / 2A cutoff to be lowered to keep a respectable number of teams in 2A D2, compressing 1A's two divisions into very tiny spaces, yes?

 

I think you have to dig up, not down.

Does anyone see the chance of keeping the division 1 and division 2 in other sports like basketball and baseball.  The size difference is just as big in those sports as it is in football.

since 4 now go to the playoffs, why don't they split div I and II among 4 top teams in a single district?  similar to what 3A has been doing.  It will mean less travel for district games.

I just hope that Winnsboro is put in a district more centrally located than what they are in now. Start at I30 and go East. Put them back in a district with Mount Vernon. Does any one know what kind of numbers that they will turn in on snapshot day?

Will this new realignment lower the amount of teams in each district?

 Why would we be in a district with Eustace, Malakoff and Kemp which is really out of our area? The district that would make sense is Quitman, Mount Vernon, Winnsboro, and Grand Saline and other east of Mount Vernon.

The UIL is on record saying Location will not play a part. They want equal enrollmemnt. You could have a town 8 miles apart like Troup and Apr and be in different districts. Also Mount Enterprise plays a school that in the town you can litearlly see the Gulf of Mexico. You think the UIL cares LMBO.

Why bother with adding an "A" for no apparent reason when you can just have a division one and two in 3A and just adjust the numbers? This adding an "A" to what already exists is useless IMHO.

Official numbers aren't reported by the schools until next month if I'm not mistaken......

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Truthfully, this is being done more for basketball than anything else. They're going to make 1A Division 2 (basketball) as 1A, 1A Division 1 as 2A,  2A as 3A, etc.

And in football 6 man becomes class A. Also in track there is a 1A division 1 & 2.
