Take your time in (at) the Grand Canyon, WCD.  Enjoy the views especially this time of year when the crowds should be non existent.  You're going to the South rim (since the north rim is seasonal) - correct?  We did a day tour through there and while I enjoyed it I wish I had longer to enjoy the views.

I retired 18 months ago and sold my house 2 months ago, bought a 5th wheel and we are on the road checking out America. Karla and I are headed to the Grand Canyon for 2 days of exploration and then drive Route 66 back home. Having a blast!  WCD😳

Looks like Trumann is getting hot.

Could be. They face a talented Westside team next Tuesday. Did Trumann have a player become eligible after the break?

Have heard nothing will happen because Hartford numbers were not counted as football numbers...however their numbers would have been counted for basketball. Will they be 2A in football and 3A in basketball now?

Banner Chaser, do you think it's time to modernize the State Tournament bracket construction?  I hate to refer to a "plug in teams to slots" method as a seeding procedure.  I've said for a while the State Tournament should use some sort of ranking system similar to what MaxPreps uses.  This would also prevent the sandbagging some coaches have been accused of using to get a better tourney slot.
THIS IS WORTH THE READ, I promise.

The ďplug it in systemĒ has major drawbacks especially in rural 1A basketball. 2015 shows you that with a 4 seed making semis. Thatíd never happen had you done the plug it in system. I like the basic system that follows. Beat the team and you are in. So if you win a game in your regional tournament youíre in. However to me the mistake is that thinking 5 regions is the answer. Kirby drove 2 hours to play County Line in Regional finals. Which is actually further than teams they were already paird up with. AAA neeeds to do a basic demographic study, realize where the schools are! Divide the state down the middle north and south, then divide it again east and west and anyone with basic knowledge will show you that what, 70% of the population in this state is in little rock or above. So you hold all finals in Little Rock, case point and shut on that. Itís the state capital with over 1+million in its surroundings areas. It can hold all state finals I promise!

Anyways you do a basic 3 regionals. 8 teams qualify for the regionals just like normal except you do 2 teams to state tournament as automatic qualifiers. (6 teams automatically qualified)

So at this point if we stopped the season and I predicted the regional final match ups for those three regionals

Your state tournament automatic qualifiers would be Kirby and dierks from region 3, Omaha and Couny Line  from region 1 and Guy  and ICC from region 2.

(Now I get the state isnít divided equally doing this, and 6 teams have been punched in, so how does a team like dierks get in after flying through the radar all year, well because they made the automatic qualifier and made that regional finals)

So you seed your other 6 teams (12 team tournament) by the rankings which is kept by actual people in the league (THE COACHES POLL) and then the press poll just like college ball. Which would give us 1) Concord (Region 2), 2) Deer (Region 1) 3) Nevada (Region 3) 4) Mt. Vernon-Enola (region 2) 5) Armorel (Region 2) 6) Wonderview (Region 1)

Then you seed them as so automatics rank 1-4 are given byes the other 2 are your 5-6 seeds automatically and theyíre voted on as well but obviously how regionals go will also help seed the first 6

So (Omaha 1 bye, ICC 2 bye, Coutny Line 3 Bye, and Kirby 4 bye) (Guy 5, Dierks 6)

First round match ups would go as such 8vs9 (Deer vs Nevada) 5vs12 (Guy vs Wonderview) 7vs10
(Concord vs MVE) and then 6vs11 (Dierks VS Armorel) so we will just say all the higher seeded teams win which would give us

1Omaha vs 8Deer
4Kirby vs 5Guy
2Icc vs 7Concord
3County Line vs 6Dierks again we will just say higher seeds win out giving us a Omaha vs ICC state championship

Itís not perfect and I doubt anyone read it all. But Iíve thought about it for a while and basically all it takes is the people putting the show together to care, coaches have to vote for their poll, (Maxpreps or something else) gives us our media poll and you rank them as you go. Itíll never happened I just wanted to explain my perfect state tournament. Sure theirs flaws but I like it, and it sure as heck beats 20 teams sure youíre in. It should be an honor to play in state. 10-3 Woodlawn isnít going to pull off the run of the year and win state. Sorry rison folks, we will see you come baseball season.

Pangburn always has great record but turns out to not be very good every year. Plays an extremely weak schedule.
Changer must be talking about boys?

I'd be fine with just flat out using maxpreps....do I disagree with their rankings....sometimes... But do I disagree to the point itd cause a problem with a team getting completely shafted in their seeding? Probably not

Roy Halladay, former major league pitcher, and cy young award winner, died in a plane crash today
He was 40 years old..

https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/roy-halladay-autopsy-toxicology-report-results-reveal-morphine-in-his-system/

"Before jumping to conclusions, recall that Halladay was a professional athlete who dealt with injuries -- a debilitating back problem in particular -- and it's entirely possible that the substances named above were prescribed and perhaps not sufficient to impair him."
