: : Will CIF accept only those 19? No more 32? All the other teams are nowhere near .500 and are either in last or second to last place in their league.

: : What do you think will happen?

: : I know what the bulletin says, but is 19 it? Will they fill in 32 with those applying without criteria?

: : I think they'll stay true to what's written. Personally I would've used a sliding scale like what they do in golf for at larges. There based on the par of the venue you must shoot certain team scores a certain number of times to get in at large. Something like the following: 25 or more games must win 10 games, 20 games must win 8, 15 or less must win 6 to earn consideration.

: : Does anyone know?

CIF was losing money on the lower divisions last year. There was a D6 playoff game last February where no students showed up and just a handful of parents, most who didn't want to pay. Some watched the game through a window from a corner outside. The home team was blown out by a school that wouldn't make the playoffs under the current format.

The CIF coaching advisory board doesn't want super leagues forming for basketball, and wants to take away the safety net for coaches who push their teams in the preseason before a tough league schedule. This format will encourage the breakup/realignment of leagues such as Gold Coast and Del Rey, as a team like Cantwell was a couple bounces from missing the playoffs this past week.

Communicating this in January to coaches was a poor way to handle this. I suspect any coach on the advisory board asking for game film from eliminated coaches this week will not hear back.

My sources also report the CIF-SS has announced a partership with Justin Timberlake on an official song for the 2017 playoffs. It might sound crazy, but it aint no lie - Bye Bye Bye
