A slight break from spring
First of all, the MHSAA this week approved a state playoffs for smaller schools who can only field eight-man teams.
The K-Man isn't sure how many local teams are going to take advantage of this, but he does have some questions about whether it will work.
First of all, if football gets a playoff for eight-man teams, why can't other sports? What's next, 3-on-3 basketball state finals?
Kosmo hopes this isn't another case of the MHSAA catering solely to football.
Second, how are smaller schools going to get motivated to get an eight-man football team in the first place. If these schools wanted to put the money/time to find or build a field to play on, the interest would obviously be so great that those schools would have norma1 11-on-11 teams.
It seems this implementation will only benefit some select schools in particular areas around the state.
Regardless, Kosmo also wants to say good luck to Bob Brugger, who was recently named the boys basketball coach at Brighton High School.
Brugger was a class act at Lakeland for the last decade and he'll be missed in Oakland County, but Brighton hired a good man.
