Changes to high school football playoffs would not be good

A storm is brewing in Louisiana high school football.

Separate playoffs for football seems to have momentum, and we have reached a tipping point.

Here’s what football coach turned broadcaster Rick Gaille said: “A tipping point is approaching. if non-public schools – that is private, parochial, charter or magnet – win all five state championships next month, momentum for a split playoff will grow.”

An Louisiana High School Athletics Association (LHSAA) source told me today to watch what you vote for, because it can often have unintended consequences. That could mean two separate associations in Louisiana.

That would not be good.
