don't know if there is a solution......LN hasn't been competitive in the AA since 2010 and nobody in the AA has been competitive with Loyola since they joined...nobody wants to play CC/BR/DLS/OLSM and none of the really small schools want to play Loyola/DC/AAGR/NDP
With the shrinking of the CL school base, the talent has been consolidated in football...UD isn't competitive in the Central so they crossover down to the AA

Only the Central Division in football is top notch....basketball in now a very average league and baseball is now heading down that path as well

Still just to balance the numbers, should Cranbrook be placed in the AA? I know they aren't great but they aren't bad enough they need to play schools with 200 kids.

There are three Class B teams in the Intersectional - Lutheran North, Cranbrook, and Cabrini

It would make a lot of sense for the CHSL to go back to the Central East and Central West setup that they had in the late 90's.  Two divisions w/ 6 teams each, but that would require promoting all three of the Class B teams in the Intersectional.  Crossovers could be played to make it a six or seven game schedule, and it would free up a spot in the lower division for Cardinal Mooney to rejoin the conference.  So it might look like this:

EAST: 
De La Salle
Brother Rice
OLSM
Lutheran North
Notre Dame Prep
Cranbrook


WEST:
Catholic Central
U of D Jesuit
Loyola
Divine Child
Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard
Cabrini


That said, I'm sure that the "AA" schools would fight this promotion tooth and nail, even though it's been done before to great benefit for the whole league, especially from a scheduling perspective.

They would fight it and why wouldn't they....except for OLSM, all the Central teams have at least twice the amount of boys...this isn't the 90's- the landscape has drastically changed

It's not he AA programs problem to solve

DLS and UD spent a little time in the AA in the late 80's I believe.....DePorres/OLSM were part of the league with Saginaw Nouvel and Benedictine in the 80's as well

Leave the all boy schools in their own division
AA could be
Loyola
AAGR
NDP

DC
North
Cranbrook

make all aa teams cross over with central once, then they can cross over with intersectional once if they want to
you could even split intersectional up in two divisions
Also let cranbrook and north play in prep bowl.

And get Country Day back into the mix like they were for a few years, allowing them to play in the Prep Bowl, as well.
