Watch: FCIAC officials talk football rivalry changes
Just a day after the FCIAC announced it would do away with its 21-year tradition of Thanksgiving rivalry football games, members of the league's executive committee sat down with Hersam Acorn live on Thursday's "Coffee Break."
FCIAC President Mike King, past-President Dave Schulz and Executive Secretary John Kuczo appeared on the HANRadio.com and Hersam Acorn Network show, which airs daily from 11 to noon, to discuss the changes. You can watch that video here:
The league decided to move up the traditional rivalry games by one week and move the FCIAC championship to Thanksgiving morning, where it was formerly held for nearly decades — before 1994.
This move, which has been met with some criticism by coaches, students and fans, will allow the rivalry games to count toward state playoff points. However, 15 of the league's 17 teams next year will play only nine games to make the schedule fit the state's schedule limits.
