My scenarios would have weeks 11 and 12 at home field sites of the highest seeds.Right. Just like this year when ML was a 2 seed. I know what you mean. A 2 seed can be better than a 1 etc. But based on this logic, the OHSAA has to have an approved system that would allow for their point system to virtually be meaningless in the first scenario by week 12, only to pick it back up in week 13. In the second scenario, instead of looking at potentially 2-4 playoff sites for the winners, we are looking at any variable of 4-8 playoff sites depending on outcomes for each of the top 4 seeds. I just don't see how it could be adopted. I like your thoughts on the second scenario, I just think there would be far too much planning to find suitable sites and for 28 regions and having 8 potential outcomes in each region going into week 12
1-4 get a bye, and then a home game.
Eliminates all of these potential issues of finding sites.
