: : : : Is it too many byes, or too many divisions?

: : : Remember, the only reason this happened is CIF changed the rule in November after everyone set their schedule.

: : : This won't happen next year because coaches will schedule easy wins to ensure being .500

: : The rule was made in the summer ALONG with all other sports EXCEPT football. For those crying that the rule was made in November, you are incorrect. Maybe your schedule was done in the summer, but the rule was known before the season started.

: ...there are a lot of uniformed coaches out there. I have talked to several coaches both boys and girls and they didn't know about it until it was too late.

: And they are all planning how to ease up their schedule next season to assure .500.

: The question is - will the tourneys now not take top teams if they are a mid-level tourney? Because the mid-level teams no longer want the L's.

: Just a mess all the way around.

I run a mid level tournament and 2 years ago we had a couple big names, the mid level teams complained already and last year we didnt have any. I think it might make it harder for top teams to get into smaller tournaments if they get the same backlash.
