Would Max join South Prairie? Glen Ullin looks to be in a tough spot unless maybe joining up with R-T-H

I was wondering if RTH might not split up and Glen Ullin and Hebron join since they already have a coop in other sports.

I thought about that too but didn't know what the numbers situation was when I first responded. That seems most logical to either all 4 towns come together and play 11-man or split the two and play 9-man each.

Would this 8 region plan help the QRF by creating more out of region games? Next question will it be a 16 team playoff(top 2), 24 team playoff (top 3), or using the QRF to decide "wild card teams" to fill out a 24 team bracket

I think there are more details to come out pertaining to your questions soon. According to the synopsis online on NDHSAA, they are awaiting feedback from schools before determining the playoff format.

Interesting questions Woodchuck. If the top two teams from each region get into the play-offs I would say that almost all of the regions would be able to put forth two quality teams. Region 3 may be the weakest region based on what those teams have done this year. Regions 1, 4, 5, and 8 probably all have at least 3 or more teams worthy of making this year's play-offs in 9-man football. Some of those teams will likely lose a lot to graduation. Regions 2, 6, and 7 I feel have two solid teams and then a pretty decent drop off.

This new plan is ludicrous it will result in a lot of lopsided football games. Last time these double A teams were down there was no competitive balance (Hillsboro played one game in the regular season within 20 points and it was against Kindred). The argument that they play class b basketball so should be playing football down there is terrible. You are going to see the top 2 or 3 teams in each region run ramshod over the rest of it and then in two years we will adjust it again. The state needs to stop this; it isn't helping any of the existing single A schools. The only benefactors of this system are the AA teams that moved down and the two Grand Forks schools. Sacrificing the good of the many to the whining of the few is a solid plan....not.

Could not agree more. It is ridiculous how the NDHSAA bows down to certain schools and doesn't care about sticking it to the smaller ones. I could not agree more that this plan will lead to a large number of complete blowouts which will lead to fewer kids playing FB at the schools who are constantly getting blown out by the bigger schools. I have never understood why the NDHSAA insists on realigning FB every few years.

How many of these schools in class b 9 man would be better off dropping down to 6 man football and would they have done this if Activities Association would help develop this division by fully supporting it and creating playoff and state title game. I look at least half a dozen schools on the above list would be better dropping down where they would have long term stability and could always field competitive team. I see they have teams back in plan that are playing independent schedules now and i don't see where things have changed that much with these schools. The class11b I just see where you have number of schools that have been playing class AA level coming back to class b 11 man nothing has changed for these schools they have size and numbers to play up class but here again we have I believe the politics of this is that again they want to be dominate school with smaller schools trying to compete with them. I guess if i was doing this i would have number schools playing 6 man and then these smaller class b 11 man schools i would move to 9 man b and this would be the way to most balance the structure. I think the problem is that coaches and administrations look at playing 6 and 9 man is not football they want to play instead of what would be best for the schools and athletes. You here this all the time when people talk about football this is not classic football and of course it will hurt athletes who want to play college football but does it or is it hurt to pride that school is not large enough to support 11 man football. I wonder if kids and parents are going to force changes by their not participating in the future in football.

I believe that the magic number is 12.... the NDHSAA requires there to be at least 12 schools committed to any activity (In this case, 6-man football) before they will sanction it and organize a play-off/championship.

I think 6 man is fun to watch but I just a 11 man is football to me. I get it if a school has under 30 males but Like Midway Minto they have 50 males in that coop... how are they not fielding a 9 man team.

There will be 10 in AAA next year. Why can't the NDHSAA sanction 6man with 8 or 10 teams?

From what I have read, it appears that 9-man will have an eight game regular season and a five-week playoff. The regular season schedule would be as follows:

Regions 1 and 2
Week 1 - any opponent
Week 2 - crossover (Region 1 vs. Region 2)
Week 3 - crossover (Region 1 vs. Region 2)
Week 4 - region game
Week 5 - region game
Week 6 - region game
Week 7 - region game
Week 8 - region game

Regions 3-8
Week 1 - any opponent
Week 2 - crossover (Region 3 vs. Region 4; Region 5 vs. Region 6; Region 7 vs. Region 8)
Week 3 - crossover (Region 3 vs. Region 4; Region 5 vs. Region 6; Region 7 vs. Region 8)
Week 4 - crossover (Region 3 vs. Region 4; Region 5 vs. Region 6; Region 7 vs. Region 8)
Week 5 - region game
Week 6 - region game
Week 7 - region game
Week 8 - region game

I've got to say, I'm really impressed with Shanley. They opted up to the highest class. Their male enrollment numbers are somewhere between 1/3 (the next lowest) and 1/5 (the highest) of the other schools in that Class. That's taking on a challenge! I sure hope they can stay competitive!
