EIAC Football Split

October 11, 2013

Yesterday I explained the reason for the EIAC split in the football portion of the conference.  To me, when you have a 9-game regular season, it is not that difficult to schedule the other 7 schools and have a single conference champion.  Theoretically, someone could win a single game in their portion of the conference and still be crowned conference champion.  The conference championship is based on your record against your division foes, not the games played against the other half of the conference.  For example, the 3A schools could all beat one opponent in their section thus making each one 1 for 2 and all of them would be c0-champs.  I know you say this is impossible, but you have to remember that some schools play all the conference schools and some will only play part of them.  Therefore, you don’t have the normal “wins must equal losses” like you do if you have just a single conference format.  This year the 3A schools (going into tonight’s schedule) will have better overall records than the 4A schools, and yet someone in 4A will be named conference champ for that division.  To borrow a phrase from a local TV personality, “doesn’t this stink?”
