Realignment has become a popular and much-anticipated side show for high school athletics and all of the other UIL-sanctioned competitions. Though it is football-centric at first blush, all other UIL activities are touched by it as well.
There are no office pools of which I am aware (yet), but the anticipation still accounts for a growing speculative audience every other year. There are always surprises, and one wonders, amidst the logistics of trying to provide fairness for each school’s travel budget, if there is not also just a touch of surprise factor built in. We’ll see on Monday.
