: : : Is this true? If you don't have a .500 record or better you cannot apply to playoffs as at-large.
: : : Our team is below .500 by one game,and not in top 3 of league. But we are in top 25 of Maxpreps playoff prediction due to strength of schedule. We cannot apply?
: : We just received confirmation last week that this is true. Regardless of what MaxPreps ranks your team, they will need to finish .500 to apply for an at large birth.
: Say goodbye to 32 team brackets, 20-24 will now be the norm..
The rumor on the street is that there is a discussion to try and get that rule waived but that it won't happen this year. I just looked at Div 2A and there are right now 23 teams in and another 5-6 teams with a chance to qualify and get in. Max would be 29 but realistically it will be about 26 or 27 teams out of the 39 in the division.
