: they finished 10-16 and 3-5 in league placing 4th out of 6 teams in their league...is it even possible for them to be ranked higher? can they even make the playoffs in division 5aaa, because last time i checked they were ranked #4
This goes back to the .500 rule.. they played a good non-league schedule, lost to some bigger schools then went into league and couldn't get it done. They may be ranked #4, but if they're below .500 and lower than 3rd in league, they're out. So it goes back to the rule- does it pay-off to play "up" in on-league? Why play tough teams that are better than you when there is no pay-off? Play up in the summer and fall, get beat in those games when it doesn't matter.
