Will you pretend you won’t be complaining whenever they’re making the playoffs with only 3 wins?

Here's what I have at the moment:

LHACWestmont, Richland, J-town, McCort, Guilfoyle, Carroll, F.Hills, C.Cambria, P.Cambria, Somerset, Bedford, C.Ridge, Central,Tyrone, Huntingdon, Bellwood, BEA, Penns Valley, Bellefonte, Clearfield, Philipsburg = 21 Total

ICCW.Branch, Curwensville, Mo Valley, Glendale, Claysburg, Williamsburg, Berlin, Meyersdale, North Star, Mt. Union, J.Valley, S.Huntingdon, Everett, NBC, Tussey Mt, S.Fulton, F.Road, McConnellsburg, Fannett-Metal = 19 Total

HeritageW.Shamokin, Pur. Line, River Valley, Marion Center, United, N.Cambria, H-Center, Cam. Hts, Portage, Conem. Valley, Penns Manor, Comemaugh Twp. = 12 Total

Windber seems to be an LHAC/ICC coin flip
No clue what Hollidaysburg's status is. Heard LHAC except football but how can an all-sports conference allow that?

Others are Independent (Harmony, JCS, Hope for Hyndman) or WestPac I guess.

If LHAC were to currently start with the 21 teams mentioned, it could be a 3-section, 7 team ea. section lineup, with the top 3 section champs and the next best overall record for a 2 week 4 team league championship playoff before districts. But then any changes going forward would screw that up. I'd picture something like Sec. 1: Westy, Richland, J'town, BMCHS, Somerset, Bedford, FH. Sec. 2 would be Central, Ridge, CC, PC, BC, BG, Huntingdon. Sec. 3 the other 7. Thats an 8 week schedule with 2 weeks to either sit out or schedule rivalry games like Ridge-Bedford. FH-CC. Just thinking here.

If you add Windber they go in Sec 2 since BC doesn't have football.

The other way to look at this for football is to have no sections and allow schools to pick a certain number of locked in games each year. Let's call that 5 or 6 games. The remainder of the games would be filled on a rotational basis.

What is Windber going to do? They initially planned to go to LHAC but with those other teams switching tracks, almost takes me back to when Ridge was hopping around like the Easter Bunny between LHAC, ICC, Mountain League/Independent, ICC, LHAC and so on. WIndber is great fit for the LHAC, with nice facilities.

A little bird told me that LV has reached out to the LHAC about interest in the conference. Please let this happen.
