Coaches like new playoff setup

The Louisiana state basketball, baseball and softball playoffs will have a different look this year.

And most coaches up here like it.

I spoke with several basketball, baseball and softball coaches and they seem to think letting playoff-bound coaches seed the brackets will work out better than the old system of matching certain districts with one another.

"To me, I feel like it’s a good change," Parkway coach Brian Rayner said. "The way it is now, sometimes you get put in a situation where you may be faced with a lot of adversity in the first round. It’s been so much the same year after year. We know if Bossier makes the playoffs, where they're going."

Only time will tell if the results back up their faith, but, for now, the coaches are happy.
