Tiger Don from Massillon Proud wrote:The OHSAA has realigned the high school football teams by placing the 72 schools with the largest enrollments in Division 1 and the remaining schools evenly distributed among six other divisions based on enrollment. If only base enrollment figures are used, then Massillon would be assigned a position in Division 2. However, the OHSAA has a referendum up for vote of the schools that would incorporate a Competitive Advantage formula to adjust the base enrollment up or down depending on specific factors. If this passes, then it’s conceivable that Massillon would find themselves in Division 1 when the dust settles. Here’s how that would happen.
Massillon’s base enrollment for 2011 is 555 boys. The formula would adjust this number as follows:
Open Enrollment – Massillon has state-wide open enrollment, so add 6%.
Free Lunches – Massillon has 44% of its students in the free lunch program, so subtract 4.4%.
Playoff Performance – If a team wins at least one playoff game in four of the last eight years, add 6%. The realignment takes place in 2013, so the years 2005 through 2012 would comprise the eight effective years. The Tigers won at least one game in 2005, 2006 and 2009. If they advance in 2012, this would constitute the fourth year, so add 6%.
Calculation – 555 * (1.06) * (-1.044) * (1.06) = 597
I ran the calculations for all of the future Division 1 and Division 2 teams and found the cutoff point to be 594. So if Massillon’s enrollment does not decrease in the next year and if they win at least one game in the 2012 playoffs, it’s conceivable they could be assigned to Division 1.
On another note, it’s possible that Canton McKinley would be assigned to Division 2 if they don’t win a playoff game this year. They don’t have open enrollment, they have 69% of their students on free lunch and they have one at least one game in just three of the past seven years. Thus, their base enrollment number of 630 would slip to 592. So the pressure’s on with them.
Finally, if the assignments were made today, McKinley, Jackson, Perry, Hoover and GlenOak would be in Division 1. Massillon and Lake would be in Division 2. Other Division 2 teams would include Walsh Jesuit, Toledo Central, Toledo St. John’s, Columbus St.Charles, Cincinnati LaSalle, Cleveland Glenville and Fremont Ross. Trotwood Madison and Louisville would slip to Division 3.
That's the best thing for everyone in the city,as soon as a few new members are voted in to the BOE.mattuneDog wrote::shock: when the time comes B.O.E. - combine two Canton city high school campuses ...enough boys for division 1!BULLDOGS!!!!!!!!!!
