Just got hold of the recommendation’s by the CIF’s Football Advisory Committee and by unanimous 8-0 votes, the motions to consider Piedmont’s three-year experient with the A-11 and the motion for the CIF to ignore the NFHS rule change regarding the A-11 were defeated. At this point, the A-11 offense as we now know it is likely dead. Piedmont administrators will likely still work to have the Federated Council considered their petition, but if I were to guess on the chances of that happening after this unanimous vote, I’d have to say it’s about a 1,000,000-to-1. But as Jim Carrey said in “Dumb and Dumber,” “So you’re telling me there’s a chance!.”
