    Wilson Hunt

    This as one time was on of the best if not the best jobs in the east. I think there is potential to get Hunt back if they get the right coach and administration will support the program.

  3. How can you be so sure they don't want 8 IF there are 8 classifications? The baseball and softball coaches have already been sent questionaries to gain their feedback to see if they would like split classification championships like football does. That tells me that there are sports that are asking about it and putting a little heat to them. Regardless of how the coaches want to do it, if the NCHSAA wants to they will. Before the 20/30/30/20 model was put into place the NCHSAA wanted feed back from the AD's and the regional meetings. My region, region 2, was OPPOSED to the idea but we see what happened. The state sees it as a money maker for state playoffs gates and let me assure you they did not get 36 MILLION in the endowment by not trying to find ways to make money. Will we go 8 for the next realignment...NO. I will be happy with 25% for all classifications. I just am very passionate when it comes to making things better even if it means rocking the boat on some issues.
  4. When you count ALL schools and do 6 champions you roughly have 1 champion per 69.5 schools. My math may be off a little but I counted 417 total schools. If you chose to do 8 state champions your number per state champion is 1 for every 52.125 schools which is basically in the middle of what SC and GA do, not that we have to compare ourselves with them cause we sure don't pay like they do but that is a good point of reference. If you chose to do 1 32 team bracket (16 west/16 east) per classification you get 46% of the teams making the playoffs with 6 brackets while you get 61.4% of the teams making the playoffs with 8 brackets. Currently 63% of the teams make the playoffs in 1A/4A football while 56.6% of the teams make it in the playoffs. So to keep your percentages closer to what you already got 8 classifications is the better model. The KEY in ALL of this if and when there ever will be a change is convincing out leaders in Chapel Hill that the is better for ALL schools and most importantly ALL sports. You got to think like they think. The 8 classification model gets the same number of teams in the playoffs equally among all classifications. No school can complain saying it is easier to make the playoffs depending upon what classification you are in. The state not only gets 8 state champions in football but now would get 8 state champions in all sports, this means more $$$ for the state which they don't need but would be a convincing factor in getting things switch. The only factor i see as a hurdle is of the 417 schools only 378 play football. This means 39 schools do not play football. Again, my math could be off on counting but i feel i am fairly close. I did an 8 classification model, of football schools only, and shared it on the coaches corner blog under 5 classification alignment if you care to look at it. If you take all 417 schools your and break them down evenly you 1A classification, 28 schools would not play football. This leaves 24 teams remaining that play football. To make your math, work if you are trying to keep all the classifications get the equal number of teams in the playoffs, you can allow the 1A classification to have 1 16 team bracket (8 West/8 East) which would give you 66.7% of 1A football teams making the playoffs. In the 2A classification you would only have 41 teams that play football. To would allow a 24 team bracket which puts 58.5% of the teams making the playoffs. Yes, you are going to have byes and i don't think no one really likes that but if your goal is EQUALITY, which I assure you that is the goal of the NCHSAA, no one will really complain. So if you look at percentage of teams making the playoffs under these scenarios, 1A gets 66.7%, 2A gets 58.5% 3A-8A gets 61.4% of teams in their respected classifications making the playoffs in football. In all other sports 61.4% make it 1A-8A. For this to work you might have split leagues but split leagues would not as bad since the numbers are more scrunched together per classification. Smaller conferences could help with the geographical burden some schools could face. We already have allowed 1 5 team league so I don't see the problem with having more 5 teams leagues even if the goal is 6-8 teams

    Keep this model and instead of changing the leagues just add those schools back into 1A and divide that classification into 1A and 1AA for basketball, soccer, etc keep 2A-8A the same

    The schools that are listed in this are football only. But i understand making 1A larger percent wise due to non football schools.

    Here is the 8A model with 12.5% in each league. I love the compact look of enrollment for each league. I also love having 32 teams per classification for all state championships. You would have to have small conferences if you did not have split leagues, which i do not mind if our state did the split league playoff auto bids better, but there is nothing wrong with a 4-5 team league just have to find a few more non conference match ups which could be done. 1A 2A 3A 4A Mountain Island Charter 509 Granville Central 732 Jordan-Matthews 860 Southwestern Randolph 1013 Cherryville 508 Walkertown 725 West Iredell 860 Havelock 1010 Lakewood 504 Red Springs 717 Newton-Conover 856 North Davidson (projection) 1000 Hobbton 501 Surry Central 715 Croatan 852 South Point 999 South Stokes 500 Reidsville 708 First Flight 846 Nash Central 990 Union Academy 495 Spring Creek 705 Hertford County 846 Pisgah 990 Rosewood 492 Trinity 696 Bandys 842 North Lincoln 988 Mitchell 489 Whiteville 692 West Lincoln 840 Currituck County 983 Union 484 West Bladen 688 Forbush 839 Forest Hills 980 Gates County 482 North Wilkes 677 Smoky Mountain 838 Oak Grove (projection) 975 Murphy 470 James Kenan 676 Southwest Edgecombe 838 Tuscola 974 Perquimans 462 Bertie 675 South Granville 836 South Rowan 972 South Robeson 450 Mountain Heritage 665 Randelman 834 East Rowan 968 Pamlico County 448 Northeastern 662 Maiden 832 Cummings 965 Northampton County 445 Thomasville 659 T.W.

    There are still only 8 state champs on the proposed model. 1A and 5A have 1 champion while 2A-4A have 2 each. I like the 8 classifications...12.5% per classification i you did it evenly. That would put about 47 teams in each classification. Make 1 32 team bracket out of the 47 per classification (2 classifications would have 48) and you have roughly 68% of the teams make the playoffs. It will put teams in all sports playing for state titles against schools there size and not have some of the differences we currently have now when discussing enrollment. This is the good. The bad is based on the geography of our state and the population dispersement you would still have to have split leagues unless you make smaller conferences which is not all bad either. Some places could have 8 teams leagues like the Raleigh or Charlotte area schools but if you look at Laney they would have to go to Fayettville, or Raleigh to find a conference for them at the size they are at. That would be terrible on the basis of travel. I will put together a 8 classification model and see how it falls

    Give me your thoughts on this. You still have 8 state champions. The good is your classifications are more bunched up enrollment wise but the draw back is due to having varying sizes of classifications you different % of teams getting in based off of classification. The biggest classification gets the smallest percentage of teams in it which is not good....Up for debate. 1A 15% 57% get into playoffs; 56 Schools 2A 20% 63% get into playoffs; 76 Schools 3A 30%; 56% get into playoffs; 114 4A 20%; 63% get into playoffs 76 Schools 5A 15%; 57% get into playoffs 56 Schools 1 32 Team Bracket (1 Champ) 2 24 Team Brackets; Seeds 1-4 Get Byes (2 Champ) 2 32 Team Brackets (2 Champs) 2 24 Team Brackets; Seeds 1-4 Get Byes (2 Champ) 1 32 Team Bracket (1 Champ) Starmount 536 South Granville 836 Triton 1260 Marvin Ridge 1756 Myers Park 3513 North Moore 535 Randelman 834 Carson 1259 R.J.

    1A East Finals: Pamlico 16, Rosewood 12

    On the outside looking in you could say that. Like I said Pamlico is favored. No excuses because I do not have a dog in the fight but Rosewood had a 2 week layoff. It hurt them and Princeton. Rosewood though they are athletic have struggled against physical running teams and unless it has changed North Edgecombe is a smash mouth type team out of the wishbone.

    1A East Finals: Pamlico 16, Rosewood 12

    No question this year the Coastal Plains is a top 1A/1AA conference in the east. But overall I would put the Carolina 1A/1AA in that conversation. Princeton, Rosewood, Lakewood, and North Duplin are 4 fairly tough teams year in and year out. Hobbton is coming back and will only make the conference deeper and Union has as many athletes as anyone. As or the game, Pamlico is the favorite but Rosewood can pull the upset. They have balance on offense and a very athletic defense. This will be a close game.
  12. I agree. I will go as far as to say that winning your conference should only guarantee you a spot in the playoffs. It will vary from sport to sport but some conferences are more loaded then others. Just cause you win a watered down conference or are the best team of 2 in a split league should place you at the top of the pecking order for playoff seeding. UCF has not lost a game in almost 2 years but has not even cracked the top 5 and is ranked behind teams who have 1-2 losses and will not win a conference title. We want the best teams to be seeded the highest.
  13. Split conferences are ok if they are done better. If you have a 7 team split league (5 3As and 2 4As for example) the 4As should get 1 automatic bid and the 3As should get 2 regardless of overall finish since that is the playoff breakdown set by the state for conferences with all teams in the same classification. Splits would also help ease the burden of travel in some areas too.
  14. I meant to say SC used to have he big 16. Largest 24 schools make up a 16 team bracket..1 champion charter schools, private, etc...1 champion I confused my self in the 1A-4A. In my scenario the schools like bear Bear grass charter, community school of Davidson and mountain island charter etc are already removed from the so when you do the 25% model you can do 2 champions for 1A. My mistake... Basically the biggest 24 need there own bracket. If you look at the ADMs and take the top 24 out you look at about a 50% difference in the smallest 4A school and the remaining biggest 4A school which is close to what it is among the other classifications. All non public N.C. schools need there own playoffs. Cardinal Gibbons and Charlotte Catholic can “recruit” from a 50 mile radius of their school which makes the playing field uneven. I don’t even want them playing 1 classification up...it is just not right IMO
  15. 1st thing, Put all charter, private, parochial schools etc in their own playoffs and on classification. They have a different set of rules athletically and academically but are allowed to play with public schools. 2nd thing South Carolina has what they called the “Big 16” which was a separate playoff for the biggest 16 schools. If you look at N.C. and the ADMs you will notice that the larger schools in our state are located in the Raleigh or Charlotte area. My opinion, and take it for what it is worth, is to take the largest 24 schools in our state and put the top 16 in a seperate playoff bracket. Call it 5a. Based off of this year’s numbers 23 or 24 would be in the Wake or Meck County area. (W. Forsyth would be the only team not from the Wake Meck County area). 3rd Remove non football schools and do a 25/25/25/25 model. Add non football back in. 1A will have 1 champion instead of split 1A/1AA due to not having a lot of football schools. You will still get 8 state champions plus the schools that fall under criteria 1 will also provide a state champion for a total of 9. It is not perfect but does solve some of our problems
