Thoughts? Franklin in D1 again this year. 4 less boys they would have been D2.

OHSAA Basketball should have 5 divisions--coaches association has petitioned for it since the 90's. The big D1 schools have a massive advantage over the smaller D1 schools like Franklin, Turpin, Mt. Healthy, Anderson, Kings etc... when it comes to tourney time. All those schools have strong football teams and can make a playoff push because they are all D2 in football--not sure why basketball can't have 5 divisions--I'm guessing it's a $'s concern to run another division tourney up through Columbus. Thoughts?

Discussing Franklin there is even more of a disparity between football and basketball. They are D1 in basketball but they are actually D3 in football, and they were 28 boys from being D2, so it wasn't like it was right on the line. I'm not sure the reasoning of not going to more divisions for basketball, but if they did I think it would be a good improvement.

They don’t even need more divisions, just don’t have to have same amount of teams in each division.

That makes sense to me and would help the issue. Would be an easy fix really.

Even if you double the number of teams in a division it would only add one more round to the tourney for that division. Not a big deal. Use a bell curve. D1 and D4 would probably have smaller amounts of teams. D2 and D3 would have more teams. I’m sure there’s some mathematical formula that could be used to distribute teams so that they are in divisions without such huge differences in enrollment. And then allow anyone who wants to move up to D1 the option to do so.
