Schools in the top 64 that are clearly unable to compete with the rest of the teams in the division can be moved down if the OHSAA chooses to do so (this would most likely apply to inner-city schools). No more than 16 schools can be moved up to DI in a given year (maximum 80).

DII-IV - 190-200 teams per division. Schools divided evenly by enrollment with no competitive balance. Teams can be moved up or down based on performance like in DI. Have a "Texas style" state playoffs where there's two playoff brackets per division. Top 16 teams per region in harbin points make the playoffs with each region divided into 2 brackets of 8 teams based off of enrollment. This would still allow the best teams to make the playoffs and play against teams of similar size.

DV - 64 teams. 8-man football. Schools can move up to other divisions but teams can't move down to DVI. 64 smallest schools plus any new programs that aren't larger than the biggest school in the division.
That actually makes sense. There are a few teams ive seen in rural and urban Ohio were they would be best suited in 8-man football.
