Thanks for the feedback, Ralph.

I'm floored that less than 50% of officials were in favor of the shotgun spike proposal.

It struck me that some of the biggest states weren't in the top 4 of officials' voting, such as CA or FL. Are we just that much more opinionated in the midwest? :)

California    274 coaches          98 officials
Florida           0 coaches          16  officials

Apparently there are more things to do in those states than to stay warm and fill out questionnaires  :) !

I only knew about this survey because I saw Bossman's original post on this site.  I've always wondered how many other FL officials were on this site.  Now I know - TampaSteve, me, and 14 others.  :)

I learned the same way. there will be overflowing suggestions in the NFHS suggestion box about making it more user friendly.

Off to Indy and then back to sunny Florida. Back in front of ole' Dell on Ground Hog Day.

I'm assuming but wouldn't coaches be notified by email from NFHS of the availability of the Questionnaire?
I mean 0 FL coaches?

Depends on who sent out the survey link. I don't remember if I got mine from NFHS or IHSAA. All IHSAA officials are NFHS members so maybe there are no NFHS members in Florida?

I found about about the questionaire on here, but the AIA (Arizona) sent out a link to everyone a week or so later.

I'm a tad surprided that it seems coaches (or ADs) across the country are not apparently emailed soliciting them to complete the questionnaire.

RALPH:
maybe information to pass along.  It seems participation for the questionnaire would be better if coaches & officials were aware of the questionnaire.

I also received the link from this Board.
I then tried to find the link on the NFHS site, but was unsuccessful.  It seems they (NFHS) should send a link in an email to all NFIOA and NFICA members.   

Ralph,
Can you make this suggestion???
 
Also, how did GA rank in participation????

PIAA has been sending the questionnaire out the past couple years to everyone in the state.  Prior to that, they never sent it.

So, the state associations just aren't sending the questionnaire that have low participation.  Maybe make that a POE among the committee members this year?

My guess is any meaningful will get voted down.

No offense to our valuable and welcome contributor Ralph, here, but this just shows why there needs to be more turnover on the committee, perhaps a term limit.  I'm convinced, without even being in the room, that the inertia of a significant number of people on the committee is just too great for there to be any meaningful change.

Also voted down:

(1) Any proposal to speed the game up via clock rules (restarting clock on OOB outside final X minutes of half, etc)

(2) Rewording illegal formation to allow for fewer than seven on the line as long as there are no more than four in backfield

*sigh*

Itís becoming obvious the Fed doesnít care what we think. For a state the size of GA that a terrible participation rate.

Hard to take a questionnaire you don't know about.

For that matter, I think the committee doesn't really care about the results anyway.
