UIL leadership answer only to the University of Texas. Whenever the executive director position opens or one of the 3 division director positions opens none of the Texas school superintendents, coaches, or music organizations have any input or vote.
Time for all ISD's to stop paying fees to UIL and let the coaches association and TMEA takeover state athletic and music playoffs/championships and marching contests.
TMEA does a great job with our region band and all-state process. There is no reason why TMEA could have its own band state marching contest system and concert band evaluations.
UIL does not have to be the be all - end all that many think it is. UIL leadership is out of touch with our needs just like so much else at the University of Texas.
