: : A friend just told me that CIF-SS is planning on dropping the Open Division to 8 teams this season for both the boys and the girls. Apparently, CIF is unhappy with the consolation side of the bracket with teams tanking to make sure of their placement for the state playoffs. The coaches are unhappy with the amount of the extra games and the gap between the Open games and the start of the state playoffs. Also, CIF is doing away with Division 1-A and just making one Division 1 with enough teams that would qualify for full 32-team playoffs minus how many teams qualify for the Open Division. This is big news considering how much money CIF will be losing by cutting down on the games for the Open Division. I know it is a bigger ticket on the boys side than the girls but I just think CIF is making a huge mistake financially and with competition.
: Your friend might want to check his sources. Just an FYI
There may be some division consolidation, but the cash cow that is the Open Division is going nowhere...
