David Collier: As you well know, I have been involved with high school sports in this area for more than thirty years. In that time I have seen the KHSAA make more than an abundant share of blunders and miscues, and more comical missteps than a Keystone Cops movie. The latest reorganization/realignment/restructuring of the high school playoffs might just stand right up at the top of the heap. When the first two rounds of the playoffs are nothing but a re-run of the regular season district games it adds nothing to the playoff atmosphere and reduces the regular season games to nothing more than a race for home-field advantage. It is ridiculous to see the same teams compete against each other on the last night of the regular season and then meet in the first round of the playoffs the following Friday night. This format penalizes good teams that happen to be in the same district and adds nothing to the enthusiasm and excitement of the "third season" for most teams. I can only hope that before the KHSAA migrates to that ridiculous six class format that they will at least return to the previous playoff structure. Thanks for all of the high school coverage provided by the Advocate-Messenger. Your staff articles, the web site and the extra photographs are tremendous. Thanks for supporting local sports.
