Cowlishaw: Why I hate having two Class 5A champions
Columnist Tim Cowlishaw answered questions in a chat Thursday. Here are some highlights.
Matt ... On the same note as 70 college football bowl teams, what do you think of Texas having 12 State Football Champions (2 in each classification). No other sport does this. $$ driven? or everyone gets a trophy driven?
Tim Cowlishaw: Money driven. Always hated the two Class 5A champions. Is the one really inferior to the other because it has a smaller enrollment? Having said that, I went to the DeSoto-Allen game Saturday night with my son and his friends. Besides being fun, I believe we counted 27 tubas in the Allen band. I don't know about everyone gets a trophy but clearly everyone gets a tuba.
