The best solution


Recommended Posts

okay bear with me this is gonna be a wild ride.

first thing were doing is moving to a 15 game regular season, and forcing out of conference opponents, so we can get proper ratings for all teams.

were getting rid of the mercy rule because its shit.

were getting rid of the all in format.

10 points required to make it to playoffs

1 point for a win against a school of 400 or more

2 points for a win against a school of 1000 or more

no location based games in playoffs, this bracket is seeded all the way from first to last. by sagarin rating.

higher seed gets home team every single game.

only one tournament all classes duke it out together

state championship is a best of three played on the same day (so I still get to watch football all day), since it would otherwise only be one game.

Mr. Football exclusively goes to a player from whichever team comes out on top, because lets face it, he earned that shit at this point.

edit: I'm aware 'the best solution' is a stupid name for an idea, however I had to change it to that after a sudden realization about the former title.

I think this is a given. I know I chuckled just seeing you started the topic, and was fully prepared for something off the hook

 

 

 

 

that makes PERFECT sense.

This is my serious attempt at solving all of the problems for the IHSAA in one go, starting with the most crime; the mercy rule.

 

this is very very super serious.

Please tell me all punts are live. 

You know I didn't really want to change to much to do with the game itself, that would be a lot in one go.

However, I would be more than happy to add it in there if there were interest.

Love the best of three in one day. That gives the iron man competition a run for it's money. 

You have a pretty decent point regarding Mr. Football going to a state champion.

it originally was going to be a best of 7 (with all 7 games being required), so We could still make two days out of it. 

However, that was potentially getting into a relatively high game count on the season.

and no I don't believe Mr. football has to be a state champion right now (though he most certainly should be a state champion in 3a or higher)

But in my format, it is undeniable that the team who played a 15 game season, potentially a 10+ game post season, ending with a best of three in one day.

and came out on top

deserves that shit.

I would think you of all people would appreciate football at the 1A level. You seem to like a good challenge. What's more challenging then putting together a good football team with an enrollment of 300 kids?

I've been advised to not discuss the topic

there are lurkers with extremely thin skin.

Here's the dirty little secret: the mercy rule or some form of it had already been informally used in Indiana high-school football before it was codified. Anyone who regularly attended Wabash football games at the turn of the century can confirm that.

It was informally done but there were instances where one team would refuse to do it so regular clock rules were applied. This eliminated that option. That's why coaches pushed it.
