Then, take the remaining teams (would there be around 60?) and divide them into three classes. 20/20/20 or 21/21/20 if you had 62 teams...you get the idea.
That structure allows for some flexible scheduling that could low the number of blowouts. ....
Three classes, flexible scheduling and all the state games at one location (I think it would be awesome if it rotated sites, but I know the powers that be like A/B in Portland).

Ararat (709 students), Camden Hills (693), Gray-New Gloucester (596), Nokomis (583), Morse (583), Lake Region (535), MDI (531), Waterville (516), Yarmouth (509), Ellsworth/Sumner (483), Washington Academy (404), Spruce Mountain (402), and Mountain Valley (375).
The Small School division, for schools with fewer than 375 students, would be: Mt. View (374), Maranacook (361), Orono (338), Houlton (336), Sacopee Valley (310), Traip Academy (255), Old Orchard (243), Dirigo (219), Telstar (199), Boothbay Region (192), and Stearns (168).
The MPA Football Committee also recommended that the 11-man Class D, for schools with 419 or fewer students, should be a statewide class in 2020, with eight teams (nine if Orono opts to return to 11-man varsity status).
