: Not disputing that, but unless someone in 5AA has a bye, the paperwork wouldn't have made a difference - there weren't any spots open according to the bulletin. I blame CIF for cramming too many schools into the lower divisions.
5AAA bracket has 6 byes. 5A has 8 byes. But 5AA had 35 auto-qualifiers and no at-large berths. Major failure.
Two of the top ten teams in 5AA, St. Pius X- St. Matthias and Webb, don't get in, despite having qualifying records. Both play in leagues where all of the auto- qualifiers are in divs. 3 and 4. Neither of them have a single loss to a team in either their own division or 5A.
In this case, CIF-SS has failed.
