: I've read the CIF winter playoff bulletin, but still trying to understand a few things.
: Let's say we are #7 in the latest coaches Poll, does that mean we will be a #7 seed? We will play an unseeded team in first round, and then play the winner of the #10 seed vs unseeded team in second round?
: Since we are #7 seed does that mean our first game is automatically at home? Second game location will be determined by coin flip if both home teams wins?
: Please help me out if I am understanding all of this correctly!
It could happen that way, but there are other factors involved. It's in the CIF Bulletin at www.cifss.org First rule is that all First place teams get a home game unless there's more than 16. Also if you're a second place team you can't be ranked ahead of the First place team in your league. Also, if a team in your division is moved up to the Open you could also move up in the rankings. The CIF Playoff Committee can change rankings and/or move a team in the bracket so League teams don't play each other until the semi-finals
