High School Football: Reaction mixed on small schools hosting playoff games

November 1308:40 AM

Allowing higher-seeded teams to host first round or bi-district football games in Texas seems like a good idea in most scenarios. Teams seeded Nos. 1 or 2 in their district have hosted bi-district games in Class 6A since 2015 and in 5A since 2018.  The rule was adopted in part because after fourth-place teams were allowed in the playoffs, some forced No. 1 seeds to flip home-and-home for a bi-district game site. If the No. 4 seeds won, a district champion was forced to play at the home stadium of a fourth-place team.  Allowing the higher seeds to host first round games provided a reward for district champions and runners-up. The higher seeds are capitalizing on their home-field advantage. Last season in 6A, higher-seeded home teams won 48 of 64 bi-district games. In 5A, higher-seeded hosts won 51 of 64 first round games. view article  arw

Supreme Court lets Sandy Hook shooting lawsuit go forward

November 1308:40 AM

The Supreme Court said Tuesday that a survivor and relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting can pursue their lawsuit against the maker of the rifle used to kill 26 people.
