Mercy would go winless in A. Gerstell needs to move down. They are just fodder for the other teams in A. Of the other non playoffs teams I would say MDS has not competed in a long time and should be moved down. JC and RPCS competed with teams this year but if they continue poor results than move them down top 2 B up. Top C could move to B and give them 8 teams.

I couldn’t agree more. Think they should have 8 teams in a division, 8 in b division, etc…. This would allow 2 cool things
- home and home games within Division(think old acc basketball)
- move the bottom team in a a division down to b next year and the winner of b to a division next year. (Think premiere league soccer)

This would be counterproductive. No way that Mercy moves up. They would lose big time. The issue would not be fixed. If that happened then the IAAM just traded one bad team for another.

Think you're wrong about 2026 as we know of 4 from Heros green 3 from M&D black 3 from Skywalkers

Yes, as several girls are already there. Rumor has it CR recruited them in lower school when he still had carte blanche. /s

I can't speak for all of the years but I can tell you in the years 2011-2015, the years my daughter played for CR at McDonogh the majority of girls that played came through the lower and middle school. He brought in about two to three girls a year from outside of middle school to the upper school entering in their ninth grade year.. The thought that the entire team was recruited is simply not true.

Stupidest thought ever. A conference with 10-12 is fine. No need for a home and home. Good teams already see search other twice a year including playoffs. Too A team enjoy playing top teams in other regions. B conference needs 8 teams and more competition so the final isn’t 19-2.

With only 5 teams in B, it's ridiculous to think of moving anyone out of B. Definitely should consider moving a couple down from A. I just don't get how A can have so many more teams than B and C. Again, 5 teams in a conference is a joke.

I know some Mercy parents. They actually think that they can compete at the A conference. It took all that I had to keep from laughing. Beating up on Park almost every year has given them a false sense of, I was going to say success, but I can’t find the words.

How does this idea preclude the teams from playing outside of their regions? With 8 teams on conference it would mean 14 games(1 more than they play now) and much more competitive games for all of them. As for seeing teams in playoffs, take a look this year at spsg/gcs matchup. They each destroyed eachother once. Spsg gets the title because of the championship but sadly there was no rubber match.
I Underatand this is hypothetical but your idea to keep it as it is simply doesn’t work. Look at this years standings, literally every team only beat the ones that are ranked lower than them(with 2 total exceptions all year). Stop thinking change is bad as the current methodology is broken and simply isn’t as competitive as it should be since it is the #1 conference in the country consistently

Here’s a solution. Instead of the A conference playing each other twice. We need to move some teams to the B conference, so those B conference teams can be competitive with like teams. The A conference can then schedule more out of conference games with highly competitive public schools and private schools. The B conference will get better because of those A conference teams moving down. This may increase the B conference recruiting efforts when parents see that there are more than five teams in the B conference, and that they are competitive.

Completely disagree that it would help the recruiting effort of the teams you want relegated. You’d end up with 60 girl rosters on the 8A teams. No player that view’s themselves as a A player would go to one of the B teams. Just ask Mercy Coach how hard it is to get lax first players to even come visit.

Because it’s 100% true. I hope they do go A and learn the hard way.

Again with the condescension. They may not be a strong enough team to play in the A bracket but there's no need to mock people. These are children you're making fun of. You must be a parent from McD, GCS or St Pauls.
