: : : That's right we got 20 and that's through the top 4 with the supposed better teams. 20 games at what $10 a ticket for adults in the playoffs? Yikes
: : Kudos to the CIF for wanting to upgrade the playoffs with teams that have good records with the goal of eliminating 1st round blowout games.
: By that logic the NCAA tournament should start at the Sweet 16? Come on, everyone loves those underdog games, despite the fact that a 16 seed has never beaten a one seed. And there are four of those match ups each year. Let the kids play. FYI, the coaches and players who get the bye would much rather be playing as well.
The other thing is that all of the teams who get a bye get a home game second round,where as without the bye they'd be on the road second road..that's a big deal.
