: : : : : I want to know if this is just a problem in my area .... coaches will schedule your teams when they are bad but once they get a good crop of kids a lot of coaches don’t want that smoke anymore ..... “now it’s about I have to schedule for the playoffs” and “we won’t be a competitive game for you guys” ..... is this understand to y’all or is it some BS ...... same team that’s been beating you for years won’t give you a game because they “might” lose it’s not even a granteed L they’re
: : : just afraid of the thought of possiblely losing ..... what do you guys think ?
: : : : The only teams a Coach has to play is those in their league. It's a shame when Coaches don't let their players be challenged. Those Coaches never accomplish what they could've by playing weak teams.
: : : : If some teams are in the open and been in open since it begin. They coaches wouldn't mind because they going to face quality competition every night.
: : It’s the hypocritical mindset that really makes me upset .... you schedule a team for a granteed win for 3-4 season and once that team starts to turn the corner or you’re having a down few years you don’t want that team on your schedule anymore lol
: I get the point of this thread, but where should the blame really lie?
: While every coach should be scheduling as tough as they can (within reason) to get better, given the CIF .500 rule to be eligible for the playoffs, many coaches cannot/will not do that because their job is to get to the playoffs.
: Think about it - play bad schedule and make playoffs? Or play top teams, lose them all, and then not make the playoffs?
: The .500 rule needs to go away; then schedules can improve again.
thats why the Trinity League is only playing one round of games...the teams at the bottom struggled to make the playoffs despite being better than many who did. With only one round they can schedule wins in tournaments and heavier games that prepare them for the playoffs.
