DII BlueCross Bowl .................................................... Dec. 2, 2017

Dead Period ............................................... June 24 – July 7, 2018 

 

Here are some important dates but you prolly already know.

 

I thought the TSSAA was gonna rotate (forward) the Blue Cross Bowls for each class starting this year. According to these dates I found on their website they moved 1A, 3A, 5A to Thursday.  Moved Class 2A, 4A and 6A to the Friday game slots this year and gave DII the Saturday games. 

 

That means the 4 year cycle will look like this:

 

Class 1,3,5A will get  Thursday,  Friday,  Saturday then another Thursday Blue Cross Bowl date.

 

Class 2,4,6A will get Friday, Saturday, Thursday then another Friday date.

 

DII will get Saturday, Thursday, Friday then another Saturday date.

 

***Also, it's showing DI having to play their quarterfinals on Nov. 18, 2016. I assume that should be Nov. 17, 2017.

 

Just something to chat about maybe.... I'm bored.

Here is an excerpt from their special called meeting minutes in July 2016.

 

The Board voted to rotate which football championship games are played on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday – three games each day.
Division II will be on Thursday in 2016, Friday in 2017, etc. . .

Does this mean 1A still gets the first game on Thursday? They should rotate it where all divisions get a chance to play under the lights at least every other year.

1A will always get the shaft.   According to the TSSAA minutes DII was to be on Friday this year. That means 1A, 3A, and 5A would have been on Saturday.  Instead they rotate the games in the opposite direction.

Splitting DII into 3 classes added an extra game and forced the 3 games on Thursday, which I do not like.   

 

DII should get their own weekend.  Play a week before DI does.  Why wait 2 weeks to play?

That would make too much sense and we know the TSSAA doesn't ever make much sense.

This is perfect. Now I know for sure I'll watch the SEC title game this year. D2 gets that time slot. I'm glad D-I is Thursday and Friday. I wish it would stay this way.

Your original post had DII on Saturday.   I assuming this post meant to say DII will be on Friday [NEXT] year.
