: : I guess my question is....
: : Why does this...
: : 2015-16: 24-2, 14-0 in league, ranked 257 in state by Max Preps
: : 2016-17: 18-7, 10-0 in league, ranked 189 in state by Max Preps
: : Equate to just a 11.88 2 year average?
: : There are teams with way worse records and way worse MaxPreps ratings, who scored way higher in the 2 year averages.
: CIF uses different formula then maxpreps including playoffs performance which means a lot in the formula.
To answer the question, for CIF placements, it is strictly on who they play, not their record or ranking. Playing a D1 team, win or lose, is different than playing a D5 team. So even though Foothill Tech has had a few quality opponents, they have also had a lot of games against low division teams. This has hurt their rating for CIF. The combination of some tournament/non league games against lower division teams and their league, which is all D3 or lower, has kept them down division wise.
