Not a bad article, Josh.

I neither agree nor disagree with your premise, but I would rather there be too many playoff teams than too few.

And just to pick nits, there have been three Central 'A' state champions since 1980. Laurel was a member of the Central 'A' from 2000-03. Their 2002 championship over Havre was a payback game for them after having finished second in the conference to the Blue Ponies that season.

So long as there are rivalries between high school teams - which is tantamount to surmising that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning - regular season games will always be important, whether or not a playoff berth is in the balance.
