New Playoff System Approved

This just in from the CIAC:

The CIAC Board of Control voted unanimously at its meeting Thursday to accept the proposal of the CIAC Football Committee to adapt a new division and playoff structure for the sport of football beginning in the 2010 season.

The format calls for four equal divisions by enrollment (down from the current six). Eight teams in each division would qualify for the playoffs. A quarterfinal round will be on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, followed by semifinals on the next Saturday and the four championship games the Saturday after that. In 2010 those dates will be November 30th (16 quarterfinals at sites of the higher ranked team), December 4th (eight semifinals at neutral sites if possible) and December 11th (four championship games at one or two sites).
