: : Yup! The calculations are selectively off. The "massaging of the data" might be an end to a means of keeping typical distributions of "same league" teams! The "At Large" ticket is the only way for "entitled" teams "Playoff" entry! There is also the "Automatic Bids" too. Imagine a "true calculated" Division that results with 32 "Automatic Bids"!!! No hope for you anyone else!! CIF....Transparency is the best way to deal with this situation! Admit that the need for selective placement is necessary and just increase your budget for legal fees next year!
: Both sides need to show their work here. How do we know "Ditto" added the numbers up correctly according to the guidelines? A possible error would be forgetting to weight the previous season's number at 33% and this season's at 67%
: Ex: (x + 2y)/2 = 2018 point total for placement
: x is the 2016 power point total
: y is last season's power point total
Complaining about what division you're in is silly. If you have a chance to be successful, a half division of movement up/down won't change whether you win a cif title or not. Every system is imperfect short of eliminating all division placement in preseason and doing everything after the final league game. The real issue is that the Southern Section is just too big with too many teams. Break it into counties and then focus on just league standings for playoff consideration. Then everyone can complain during releaguing cycles and eliminate the drama with playoff positions outside of seeding. Basing results on history is rough for teams like Esperanza, but it's the best we've got at the moment.
-A coach whose team is 3AA but should probably be 2AA.
