    Best thing to happen to high school football in this state in YEARS!

    Can someone explain to me what is the main hang up with having Spring football here? I have heard some reasons such as having to pay coaching stipends all year instead of half, cuts into other sports etc....

    I doubt we will see the dissolution of the A-AA designation in the playoffs. Including more teams overall in the playoffs is generally a good thing for the school's bottom line and for the kids.

    Kind of miss the old days though when there fewer teams in the playoffs - each game playoff game from 1st round to last was extremely competitive and hardly ever a sure thing for either team.

    With the POD system abolished does this mean there will be less teams in the playoffs as well? Also, I agree those who are wanting Spring Football. It is something that is LONG over due for this state.

    lazy...I agree, wake county will still play a signifigant amount of playoff games against each other, but, at least without the POD system, you won't get 2 10 win teams playing in the first round, or teams with better records traveling to schools with less wins, but higher conference finishes....

    I'm sure it is for the best, but triangle schools will continue to play each other repeatedly in the the 4A playoffs. With about 96 4A schools in the state that means 48 eastern schools which in turn means 23 of them from Wake Co. alone. Throw in the Durham 4As and you've got over half the east. You guys will be playing each other over and over again.
