Part of that was also, when it was first implemented, it took four points to stay up instead of two points, which I though for sure would set up a situation of roughly three or four teams taking turns wearing the crown. That hasn't ended up materializing; especially with the two-point modification. That kept Pioneer up in 2A instead of letting them back down ... and keep in mind that had they returned to 1A it would have been on the heals of picking up a regional title in 2A the year before over Andrean. For the most part, there really hasn't been any yo-yoing of 1A teams. Note that LCC won a sectional in 2A last season, so another sectional win and they stay. Although it's been about a decade since the first teams were SF'd, we're still still very young in the process. We've only had a about five cycles and, in that time we've also had some issues with having to modify the stay-up points, so we've really only had four cycles and one of them was the wonky COVID cycle. We don't have as many data points as it seems like we might have at this point, but I think SF is doing a decent enough job at this point, even if it's not at 100% of what it was expected/hoped to do. I'd say it's a step in the right direction and better than where we were. As for the p/p auto bump, in 1A, the only really competitive school at this point is Lutheran that's there. SF is about to take care of them. I also suspect that they will be able to pick up two points in 2A barring getting a 2A sectional of death like the 3A sectional of death or the infinite wisdom of putting Chjatard and Roncalli in the same sectional when Chatard bumped up to 4A. Enrollment will end up taking care of Covenant Christian and Park Tudor most likely the next time around, so it's likely to be a fairly moot point in the next year or so. Appreciate that! 😆 1 hour ago, US31 said: For the record...any SF discussion I particpate in is supposed to begin with DON'T FORGET ABOUT WEBO!!! 🤪 My issue with 1A is you could very well end up with a yo-yo situation of P/Ps moving up and down "taking turns" in 1A. Lutheran, LCC, CC... Shrinking 1A down to 32 would bump some of these schools up to 2A. I don't think its unrealistic to move any other P/P up into the 33-?? 2A. You can all leave us out of this... 😆 We have been in 3A going on 3 years... We will more than likely be back to 2A in the fall of 2024. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
