Ohio HS Insider: Decision to add another division not overly celebrated by coaches -

One might think the fact that there are now seven football divisions was a highly favorable move among Ohio high school football coaches. Turns out it was one that was done with limited input – if any – from that group.
While at the North South game talked to coaches from one public school, who were really unhappy with the seven divisions. Then add in if competitive balance proposal passes and they gave example after example of where teams would end up that just made them very unhappy. All they talked about is how unfair things would end up. Then the final point about punishing teams for success. This is not the first time I have heard complains. In fact I have not heard anyone that favors competitive balance, so how was the vote so close last time? I must be talking to the wrong people.
