“The Southern Section is seriously considering creating an eight-team Open Division for the football playoffs and picking the teams at the end of the regular season. Teams would come from Division 1 only”

Should be interesting as to what they come up with. I also heard they are considering allowing Open Division semifinalist to go to the state bowl games.

Ya ,makes somewhat sense, since the CIFSS has so many teams, especially the CIFSS D1 runnerup not being allowed currently to go to a state bowl game is bogus..

I think allowing open semifinalist teams to go to a bowl game is stretching it a bit and
there would not be enough bowl spots to make it happen any way, I'm thinking...

No, but letting the open division runner-up play the Div 1 champion for the right to go to the Div 1 bowl game, makes sense.

The biggest loser is all of this is Folsom. They would no longer be playing the 11th or 12th best team in the state in the D1 state finals.

CIF must have read my post a couple years back when I suggested they should go to a 8 team playoff. Do I get a consulting fee?
