I'm wondering how many people out there think the wild card should be brought back for high school football.
When the FHSAA used to reward the 2 teams with the next best records in the region, it made every game important, not just the 4 or 5 district games.
It would make each week vital. Teams wouldn't have throw away games.
And in a case like this season where there are 4 teams in District 16-6A worthy of a shot at the playoffs, at least 1 would likely get in. In District 16-4A, Booker T., Edison and Jackson are all capable of doing damage in the playoffs. But only 2 will go and you'll likely have a 7-3 team missing out.
Homestead or Killian or South Dade or Southridge could get left out despite winning seasons.
Meanwhile, you'll have a .500 or worse team make the playoffs in District 12-6A.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to consider this when the FHSAA next re-districts.
