Playoffs expand next season.

The new 6A isn't really what that sounds like - slicing the biggest schools off into a group. It's actually the opposite. They are splitting A into two groups, calling the bigger of the two groups AA. All the rest simply get another A - if you were 5A before, you're 6A after.

Last I heard, that was for the 2014-2016 alignment, but I find no confirmation on that.

I'm not sure UIL actually makes more money from this. It's possible, but in honestly, this necessity is coming from the sheer increase in the number of schools in the state. If they didn't do something to add a class, it wouldn't be long before they had to add a round of playoffs in one or more of the classes, or they would have to have more teams per district than current bylaws allow, in order to accommodate the number of schools in the state.

Plano East is the largest school in Texas followed by Plano West, Plano, and Allen. They are all in the same district.
