Posted something similar on Dermott thread on 2A board - unless concrete rules on participation are put in place for the next cycle, 8-man will become nothing but teams who can't compete in 11-man.

Where are these schools that were supposedly going to start football and play 8-man?  Frankly, I don't think they exist.  The start-up costs of 8-man and 11-man are virtually identical.  Still need field, equipment, staff, etc.  I do not see any current basketball-only program adding football at 8-man level.

I do know there is a push from some - coaches/admin/etc. - to move to 6-man instead of 8-man.  If it is truly about low participation, that would be a better move.

Article please?

From Lonoke County Sports Report on May 24:
“The Carlisle-Lonoke football game has been moved to Week 0, according to Carlisle coach Caleb Shock. The date for the game is Aug. 30 at Fred C. Hardke Field.
Carlisle had lost a home game against Brinkley in Week 9 because of the Tigers choosing to play 8-man football this season.
With the Carlisle-Lonoke game being moved to Week 0, the Bison were able to schedule Johnson County Westside in Week 1, the second game of the season.
Carlisle will have four home games and six road games.
Home games including Lonoke on Aug. 30 against Lonoke, Sept. 6 against Westside, Oct. 4 against Des Arc and Oct. 11 vs. Marvell.
Road games include: Sept. 13 at DeWitt, Sept. 20 at Baptist Prep, Sept. 27 at Hazen, Oct. 18 at Marianna, Oct. 25 at Clarendon and Nov. 8 a Earle.
The Bison will be idle Nov. 1.”

Would the small private schools in big cities ever play 8-man? Like Haas Hall and the Arts Academy.

It still doesn't say where they will play!

They don't have a field and are still in talks with multiple sites in Texarkana

There is a huge difference between numbers and quality of numbers. I've seen some 8-man teams with 20+ , but most have less than 20. Woodlawn has a very good class but only 15-18 players. They usually only have 4-6 come to summer workouts because of jobs. If you try to play Junction City with 15 players and only 8 true starters, what happens? That goes for playing basically anyone in 8-2A. All the teams that have committed to 8-man have done everything in their power to stay in 11-man. I used to think it wasn't real football but all you have to do is go watch a game, and you'll realize too, that's it's still football. Blocking, tackling, running and throwing. It's just condensed into a 40 yard wide field. It's a fun game to watch. If you can play, you can play. As far as those 1A baseball/basketball only schools are concerned, it would be worth the startup money to at least make it an option. Football makes money. As they say on Field Of Dreams, "if you build it, they will come."
