: Why have poll when there possibility those rank team may not be eligible for playoff because they didn't meet the requirement for league finish? Some league are way stronger than others.
: You want competitive equity in playoff but you allow team that want have 500 record overall and their league is not strong at all to enter the playoff.
: I just wish that all rank team in poll get automatic bid for playoff and team that finish 1st and 2nd in their league will get automatic bid as well. After that every other team must submit at large bid for selection for playoff. If we do that way then we will have competitive equity for the playoff.
I wouldn’t trust those polls to determine who deserves to go to the playoffs. Many of the coaches polls are way off because it is impossible for a coach to monitor 40 teams over the entire section and really know who is deserving. In the end coaches who vote, usually vote their friends’ way higher than they deserve and teams always get overlooked. Last year a #1 seed lost in the 1sr round. That is a combination of not only the seeded team being overrated but the non seeded team was obviously overlooked by the voters (and they won in the 2nd round too). You will not please everyone all of the time but if you cannot finish .500 AND not finish in the top half of your league you shouldn’t be in the playoffs.
