Class 6A's largest school, Broken Arrow, is 3.5 times larger than Tulsa Washington, the smallest school in the class.
The other football classes are in the neighborhood of a 2-to-1 ratio between the largest and smallest schools, or less. Class 4A's largest school is only about 1.3 times larger than the smallest.
If you don't like the idea of adding a ninth state championship trophy, that's a fair argument. But Class 6A isn't where the resolution lies. Condensing smaller classes, which have smaller disparity in school sizes, would be a better answer to that argument.
Only one of the two plans fully addresses the size disparity. Plan II will continue to put teams from the largest 16 in the same district with teams from the smallest 16. But the playoffs will still be split evenly, and districts will be better formed geographically, to keep travel minimized.
Plan I will likely add travel for many teams, but it will address safety concerns for the smaller schools, whose players are put in harm's way on the field far more often than those from the larger schools.
The OSSAA presented plans that address the major overlying concerns of all 32 schools in 6A — competition, safety and travel.
Early discussions with administrators suggest there is no clear favorite among the two plans, and it's likely to be a close vote.
Now, it's up to the school administrators to decide which of those issues they value most, and cast their votes to tell us what the future of 6A football will be.
