Another thought about struggling with Iowa classification is what Oklahoma does. They split their top division. There are 16 in the top division. What if Iowa did that and then kept everything the same after that? ( Next 48 or 52 in each class) Even go one step farther and think if the top 16 was not only by BEDS, but a success factor as well. I would think schools may try and get into the top 16. This also may even out the current competitive level of 4A. You would think schools like Indianola, Roosevelt, Ottumwa, Marshalltown, Ft Dodge would feel like they could win a state championship without those top schools. My guess is Xavier, Solon others would be a top 16 type program? Great message board discussion or sports talk topic. What schools would be in the 5A super division??? And for playoff purposes, I think the top 8 make the playoffs in Oklahoma. But then again they play after Thanksgiving... UGGHH. Don;t quote me, but think they take an off week for the top class between the semis and the finals. More Hype.
