2019 teams
« on: October 19, 2018, 11:52:00 am »
Has anyone heard of any new teams joining the 8 man football for 2019? I expect an increase in teams wanting to play, but haven't heard of any specific teams.

I think one of the secrets to making 8-man take off is to make all schools start basketball in November at the same time. Remove the incentive to not having football.

I'll add that there are a few 3A teams who rose to the point where they should strongly consider it. Not naming any names, bud.

or let everyone start playing when the non football schools do.

Arkansas starts basketball way to early for non-football schools. It is the only state I know of in this area that does that.

I really do wish the start date for basketball was the same for all schools regardless of classification.

I feel like basketball season used to start a lot earlier than it does now for the "football" schools

I have always wondered what the reasoning of the AAA was to not allow  all schools the option to start playing in October. I know some may rely heavily on football players coming over in especially the 2A and 3A ranks, but when I played at a 4A school all 5 of us starters where basketball only guys so why could we not start playing earlier. I would have loved the chance to get 6 to 8 more games in, and it would be a great opportunity to really mix in a good variety of opponents. I think this rule of only letting basketball only schools is not fair because 2A and 3A schools like a Valley Springs for example get a leg up on their 3A counterparts who don't get that luxury of starting early on top of the obvious of all their athletes being in basketball to begin with. You follow the sport more down there so I would like to hear your input on that. I really wish all schools had that luxury of starting early if they wanted to.

-I am shocked it has never been brought up to the vote on in the summer.... I honestly think it may have more to do with the possible ref situation (not sure how many of them duel up reffing football and basketball) which would cause a shortage in a 4-6 week window

-then I think the administrators would not want it cause it creates more work for them cause they have a loaded October and November on their plate in athletics


-I think the coaches and players would love it so I think it has more to do with outside factors than anything
