: : : How exactly can you quAlify for playoffs? top 2 in league what about an at large bid?
: : Teams need to be top half of league.
: : 6 team league-3 teams qualify
: : 8 team league- 4 teams qualify
: : Odd number teams- round up
: : Then it moves to at large if a division cannot fill a 32 team bracket with auto qualifiers. CIF website shows on average how many teams usually qualify for each division and how many at large teams have been accepted recently.
: Don't forget the magical ".500 or better record" to be eligible to petition for an at-large.
: This is what keeps some teams from playing at a little higher level. Teams can't afford to take a few beatings to "toughen up" like they could in the past.
We could see up to 4-5 ranked teams in some divisions missing playoffs due to not qualifying through league. 20-25 wins may not even be good enough for one school in particular.
Divisions 3 and higher need to be capped at 40-45 schools.
