Friendship Christian moving to Division II in 2013

Defending 2A State Football Champ FCA will compete in Division II beginning with the 2013 school year. IMO a very difficult move for them to make, but I definitely wish them luck as they move forward with their athletic programs...

Here's a link in case you're interested:

IMO the difficult part will be losing rivalries with Watertown, Gordonsville, Trousdale County along with gimme wins against the likes of Red Boiling Springs, Pickett County, Clay County, etc. they were assured of in Region 4A Division I..It will be MUCH harder to play (and beat) the Division II teams they will now have on their schedule(such as Knox Webb, DCA, BGA and so forth)..
IMO They were concerned that students who were receiving need-based financial aid were not eligible to play sports at the Division I level and this will open up those opportunities.

Private school s should play in a private divison IMO. Gald to see them get out of playing mostly schools than can't compete with recruiting and money that fca has.

We played Fca in the championship game last year and I was amazed at the money that showed up there...guy that was playing for them was from smith county where my cousin was from said he was one of smith county s best players. Think if you can recruit than you deserve your own divison.Should not be in the public school system playoffs.

We should start paying. Maybe We'd stop losing our best players to McCallie and Baylor.

You can't recruit. That's why FC is moving. So they can.
Also there is a multiplyer rule. Private schools multiply there student body by 1.75 to determine class. That's why Grace Knox, BBS, and FCA were 2a when they are 1a sized schools.

If they are not recruiting they are getting very lucky to get the players they are getting..... My point is schools like these dont need to be in the same playoff system as teams like dresden, union city, adamsville,trenton etc

People who choose to make sacrifices and send their kids to private schools might choose the one that has a good football program. Thats not recruiting, that's the same as choosing to go to an open enrollment public school for the same reason.

I personally would like to see fewer divisions right now we have 8 state champions. That's crazy. Should be 5 max IMO. 2 private offering scolly and 3 public/private non scolly.

I guess they figure that if you drive through South Pittsburg and still want to go to school there, that's your problem.
