: : : 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
: The weighting per year is easy algebra, the hard thing is figuring out what division teams that are not from this state belong to. For instance, when teams go out of town and play a tournament in Hawaii, Florida or Illinois, what points are allocated to those team wins and losses?
: Also, are you supposed to add the points for every game then divide by total games played? CIF is not giving very specific guidelines.
Games against teams not in the southern section are not counting in the point system. Those games are dropped like they never happened as far as making the point system.
