A lot of attention is on Dallas AAA Academy, and it begs the question to whether or not these charter schools are fair or foul for UIL competition? I saw in track where Dallas Gateway Academy shattered state records in the 1A division. Should they have to compete in a higher classification like any TAPPS team that moves to the UIL does?

Yes. They should be forced to compete at least one class higher than any team I root for, especially if they're as loaded as Triple A.

Actually I think the real answer is not to have them in the UIL at all, but if you are going to allow it then just make them play by the same rules as everyone else. I'm not sure if in the end Triple A has any more of an advantage than any small school located near or in a large population center (Brock, Ponder, etc).

It is alot like a 1A around a metroplex but with the addition that they started the school themselves basically with the AAU team they had.  My problem is with the UIL.  If they allow this, th purity of basketball in Texas is in trouble. 

All that being said, all it takes is 1 game for them to be beat.  You heard it hear first, I predict they will not win it all.  Yes, I could be wrong, but I am going to say they will not.  Just like everyone thought Yates was a lock for State Champion this year?

 

If something does not change in basketball in Texas (1A-5A), we are about to lose a lot of what makes basketball so great.  The UIL better start doing something with Yates, and Triple A, and Kimball, on and on.

 Triple A will win the Class A state championship next season unless it is ruled they are doing something illegal.

 

And Yates wasn't a lock to win 4A last year.  Kimball had almost as many players recruited to play there as Yates did.

Hindsight is 20/20.   There was no discussion of Yates not winning State.  Triple A can be beat and I predict they will.  32 minute game, anything can happen.  I bet no one thought Argyle had a shot this year.

Triple A's star guard was named a second team freshman All-American by Maxpreps, for whatever that's worth. (And was newcomer of the year in the DFW area by the Dallas Morning News (all classes), also for what it's worth.)

I can't wait until they release their schedule. I bet they load-up non-district with some incredible teams. At least, I can't see how they could sell 1A ball to these kids otherwise.

I have seen bigger upsets....not saying that it will be tough....but there is a chance they will be beat....I was on a team very similar that everyone said there was no way could be beat...in a 32 minute hs game and a team shoots 75 percent from floor and makes all 31 free throws.....any team can be beat....now if it was a best of 3 in the playoffs, then I would say no way.....but one game anything can happen.

ANY non public schools that are admitted to the UIL is fine, as long as they are all grouped together in their own class (regardless fo their enrollment). Play their games @ State earliest & latest, & we'll see how many fans they have.

Charter schools are public schools but the difference, in this instance, is that their charter determines their geographical boundaries They can get students / athletes from multiple district attendance zones. Since UIL is allowing charters to pull from other places they might as well do away with transfer eligibilty. Everyone should play by the same rules
