Lots of props to the teams that are in Division 1 and the teams that petitioned up or decided not to petition out.
I think D1 should be a premier type Division and this is what I would propose.
Each year only 24 teams are allowed in
They should be able to be the only Division to play out of State Teams
They should be able to use helmets and shoulder pads for spring ball
Kids that transfer there should not be penalized, unless it is from another D 1 school
They should play for the State Championship all others would play for the Division Championship
