: Does anyone feel like competitive equity has hurt good programs and helped bad programs? It seems like if you struggle badly for a couple of years you will be rewarded. Another observation is that it loads up the top couple of divisions which means after the first round in the playoffs half of all the best teams in Socal are out of the playoffs while you could have a school of 3,000 that has underachieved for a couple of years beating schools of 500 students in the semi's or finals of division V. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this.
Yes, but that is exactly the point of it. Commissioner himself Said the point of it was to help struggling programs have a chance at playoff success. Also helps group all the schools that recruit every year towards the top so they don't get easy runs at the bottom division. The one flaw is the first year a school recruits it still is placed down....either way though it will all be changed in 2 years when they go to the same year data program, at that point recruiting schools will all be placed higher and the bottom divisions will all be lesser programs.
