I'm not a fan of having schools choose where they go. I think of what I would do. If I were choosing and I was one of the top teams, I would chose to go against tougher teams and thus stacking a District and eliminating a top team if I could. I know that's a complete contradiction of what I am proposing, but what I think is fair for the majority is not necessarily what I would do as a competitor given a choice. If I was choosing, there would probably be a District just like LCCC for D2.

Say Bay was Ranked #1 and chose LCCC. Woodridge at #2 chooses LCCC to show Bay they aren't afraid of them and to get a better feel for what to expect and need to do at the District and State. Then Rocky River at 3 decides to go to LCCC for the same reasons Woodridge chose LCCC and because they think, how many other teams are going to have the nerve to put themselves in a District that already has 3 slots pretty much assured?

I'm pretty sure that the seeded Districts allow the higher ranked teams to choose last. So then, it might be the same where if I were #1, I'd choose to go against #2. There would be things like injury and stuff to look at, but I'm not a fan of having coaches choose.
