: : : Coaches,

: : : I have done rankings with a couple of different schools for about a decade. Recently, I was told by the coach who collects and compiles the rankings that "In addition, no team can be ranked above a league team if they place lower in league standings." Has anybody been told this before? I have never heard of this, ever. In one way it makes since; however, there is a team in our division that has only played 6 (not a typo) total games. They are 5-1 and in first place in their league. I refuse to vote for them. Also, there is a league where the 3rd place team beat the 2nd place team, and I honestly feel the 3rd place team is better. I am just wondering if anybody else has ever heard of this mandatory ruling from CIF. Any insight would be appreciated.

: : Iím the cordinatotor for 3A and I can tell you that has never been told to us.

: Some of you may never have been told of it but it is in the playoff bulletin (released Jan 23, 2018) and has been there for a long while (see the note at the end of the paragraph).

: Adjustments to Seeding: Adjustments to this procedure would be made if the seeds in the same half/quarter of the bracket were from the same league. Another adjustment may become necessary in order to ensure that the No. 1 and 2 entries from the same league are placed in opposite halves of the overall bracket. Note: Throughout this process, a league No. 2 entry may not be seeded higher than the No. 1 entry from the same league, nor may a No. 3 league entry be seeded higher than the No. 2 entry from the same league.

What you posted sounds like an adjustment after the seeding was would be sent in. Doesnít sound like how coaches have to vote. Like I said, in our preseason meeting and in our weekly emails, it has not once been mentioned.
