A polo jersey?
before the explosion of TV coverage, that's all most americans had; local sports teams. on volume alone, i would think prep sports have more live attendees than college and pro combined.
You are basically a troll on this message board.
why the MHSAA can't seed the playoffs 1 through 32 in each division and do the same for basketball.
It's simple, cost savings you can't expect a school to travel across state (or down from UP) 2-3 times over a playoff run. The cost of buses, food, hotels (on long trips i.e. Marquette) for 80+ kids and coaches can really hurt schools who already are working on small budgets.
In that scenario, Melvindale ABT (southeast MI) would have to travel to Ishpeming in western UP (Division 7 match up). That's a 475 mile/8 hour drive and most likely require an overnight stay. That's just not feasible.
is traveling to Iron River, easily 7 hours in a school bus. No different.
Long distance games can be played on Saturday as most already are now. There is no difference or justification for not seeding the state playoffs.
There are some scenarios that are simply unavoidable, especially when there are teams up in the UP. I would also bet that TC and their families have the resources to rent a Greyhound and/or pop for a hotel. Melvindale...not so much.
Temperance Bedford gets Westland John Glenn as they continue their path to an undefeated season. Go Kicking Mules!
Did Northview make the playoffs? I know it was an outside shot.
Pfeh, GP South got the fastest ticket out of the playoffs anyone could have: a first round date with Cass Tech.
Apparently, I've made the bulletin board over at GPS. Even though there are 50+ other tweets saying GPS is doomed. I mean, when you lose to a MAC Blue team and you are supossed to be the terrors of that crappy division, it doesn't say much for your chances against the D1 football factory of Cass Tech. This guy's twitter bio says he is the GPS Offensive Coordinator-
“@WolverinesMike: RIP Grosse Pointe South. They're playing Cass Tech.” We can use this attitude as motivation
South alum? That's my school now. Isn't it just so lucky that South gets to play Cass Tech for a second straight year? And let's not forget that two years ago South also got eventual state champion Martin Luther King. South just has the best luck, don't we?
No, currently a senior at Utica. No doubt GPS is going to MAC White next year. They've been killing it in Blue and Roseville has been awful since they've moved up. Wouldn't doubt it that LCN moves up to White also since Cousino has been stinking up the joint recently.
I really dislike the floating divisions. Competitive balance is what they argue, but it has destroyed rivalries.
Utica hasn't played Eisenhower since 2007 and they share a stadium.
Utica hasn't played Romeo since 2009 and they've been playing for a trophy called the Little Brown Jug since 1947.
Angers me that I'll be an alum soon and will have never experienced a rivalry game.
Blame your AD. South and North often don't share a division but play every year. I imagine if your AD gets his shit together (and can get another AD to do the same) you ought to be able to play at least one rivalry as a crossover every year. The exception might be if the teams are more than one division apart.
Lcn will likely jump two spots to the red braise the majority of other coaches in the conference can not stand their head coach. He is shady as can be and constantly calls out teams Lcn would have no shot at beating. Don't e surprised if they jump two divisions and get slaughtered in the red.
You might be right but you can't complain about having your words used in that way if you put them out there on the Internet.
I'm really confused as to why anyone would complain about this. I don't follow recruiting at all, but as a high school varsity coach in non-football coaches that also went to high school in michigan, hell yeah I follow the tournament a bit. I check in on my alma mater, my cousins'/parents' alma mater, and I definitely sit on the couch on black Friday and watch the games.
District 1 in Region 3 is crazy. DCC is a 4 seed! a very competitive district
I think this is great, the internet keeps expanding the availability of content, which has the net impact of making the world smaller, which is fantastic for those of us who no longer live close to where we grew up.
I moved to Los Angeles after graduation from Michigan, but I still donate to both schools that put me on the road to success.
Go Blue, Go Warriors!

I disagree with your main point, but it could always be worse.
Utah has 6 divisions from roughly 115 total schools. There will be a state champ out of 12 schools in some divisions.
That got pretty amusing as far as schools per division go
When did that start? I thought it used to only be 1-8
Division 9 is 8-man football. I can't exactly tell you when it started but it is for the uber small schools.
I had no idea Michigan had 8-man football. I'm pretty sure that's got to be fairly new, like within the last 5-7 years but I'm no expert
in 2011. This year 37 schools played 8 man football. Most of the schools represented were Class D from the thumb and UP. I expect this division will continue to grow esp in rural areas.
Notable 8 man schools.

It's so weird seeing my high school team 9-0 and a 2 seed in Division 2. We were a laughingstock while Larry Caper ran all over us every year I was there.
Go BC Lakeview!
I would have never thought that they were 9-0 until I watched the show yesterday. Usually an okay team, but we played them in a 7v7 at ford field back in the summer and they didn't look very good. They must have a solid line and run game. Best of luck! Guess it goes to show how lite those things matter.
Let's go Clarkston
Your boy Krenzel played for one of our local rivals, Ford II. His jersey is hanging in their gymnasium along with BUCKEYE ALL-AMERICAN in big letters painted on the wall.
He was probably the last 'elite' player ford II has had. It's been down for a minute now.
Anyone know when all conference honors go out? Or is it just based on the conferences?
It's generally done by conferences. Although most are done around the same time for the papers. I have to have my league votes in by this Friday so likely a week or two after that.
Thank you sir.
Wooooooo, go CC-C Eagles!!
Much more interesting than Ohio's process, which is entirely mathematical (points for wins depending on school size, and points for wins that the teams you beat get, again based on school size, all averaged out by number of games per sample). New wrinkle this year that they went from 5 to 6 divisions, with only the biggest school division having only 2 regions (instead of 4). Current unofficial status here - one more weekend to go. Locally, Jake Butt's alma mater has clinched a playoff spot, but we don't know yet if we're hosting the first round. Taco Charlton's alma mater is sitting at 17th in the region, so is currently on the outside looking in, but given the formula, they have a decent chance to clinch a spot (but likely not a home game first round).
