With the .500 rule for playoffs, there is no reason to play tough games- unless your team is a true championship (league or CIF) contender. 85% of teams are scheduling in such a way as to give themselves the most possible wins. If you get into the playoffs, you have a chance to do something since the divisions are supposed to be set up based on competitive equity.
If they went back to just filling 32 teams without a win pct requirement, you'd have teams more willing to schedule up and get tougher. It's the rule of unintended consequences..
BTW.. "nobody's" means that something belongs to nobody.. ie: "Who's warm-up top is this left in the team room?" (no response) "Well, I guess this extra warm-up top is nobody's.."
"nobodies" means more than one nobody.. ie: they're getting free wins playing nobodIES..
