JJH CBP Survey: Ohio’s Athletic Directors Speak Out
Will the fourth time be the charm for a Competitive Balance Proposal in Ohio? Less than 24 hours before the start of the OHSAA’s swift seven-day sales pitch (the first Town Hall Meeting is Wednesday in Dayton), here’s what we know. We sent a survey to every athletic director in Ohio last week and plenty responded. If it’s up to them, the answer is…
It’s going to be agonizingly close again.
Nearly 200 schools responded to our 10-question survey and their answers are below. Eight questions were Yes/No. Two allowed for more descriptive responses.
Also, as noted, we sent this survey to Athletic Directors, not Principals. While principals will officially cast the vote for their school on the OHSAA ballot, we wanted to know what the main athletic leader in each district thought about the burning athletic question statewide.
Here are the results. Click on a question to see the results.

9. Any general thoughts/concerns on the New CBP? And the impending vote? Do you feel there is an unfair advantage? Do you feel something needs to be done? What don’t you like about the new Competitive Balance Proposal?
