: : : Brackets out in 4+ hours..
: : : In the CIFSS playoff bulletin, they list the dates of the contests for a 32 team bracket-
: : : Wed= wild card
: : : Fri= 1st round
: : : Tue= 2nd round, etc.
: : : So does this mean that they are planning on taking more teams or are they really looking to push start of the playoffs to Fri? In most divisions there are not more than 32 auto-qualifiers, so no need for wild card round. Could they be taking most at-large qualifiers (.500+ record) and having 40 or so teams in the dance? For most teams, sitting home til Friday (especially if you finished league last Wed or Thu) is not optimal - unless you have injuries.
: : Wildcard games are for when there are more than 32 auto qualifiers. Unless that is the case in the lower divisions, I dont foresee any of those games happening.
: : I'm not a fan of the layout this year either. One game this week means three games next week, why not 2 per week like most schools are used to? I'm site there is some reason for it, but I cant figure it out.
: Not sure, since there are only two divisions that ended up needing WC games (though Division 5A has a whopping 11 such games this Wednesday)
Changes all the time. For several years first games Friday. HATE how there are byes in first round and many many teams who are good enough but not in playoffs very various reasons, .500, rewarding horrblie leagues with top half go to playoffs etc... changes should be made.
