A change for football
It may not have been the biggest vote taken this fall but the decision by the state's MIAA-member schools to dramatically change football's postseason was a huge step. No longer will 19 teams say, "We're No. 1." No longer will Super Bowls be spread across the state. No longer will Tuesday night semifinals frustrate school administrators, parents, and yes, even journalists. Will it be a good thing? Will it hurt Thanksgiving rivalries? Time will tell. But the 161-131 vote means the majority think it is worth trying. "Excellent day for high school football," said Xaverian athletic director Charlie Stevenson after the vote.
