: : Can never understand why the higher seed in any
: : CIFSS playoff sport does not get the home game always, like it is for the state playoffs.
: : I mean why bust your A** to get a high playoff
: : seed during the season when you have to do
: : coin flips for home games during playoffs I mean would it not be easier for everyone involved if it just went by the higher seed for home games?
: Always about the money - whether it's letting everyone make some, or not making one team lose a bunch.
: Now that Open is giving higher seed all home games, maybe they will switch it next year.
The Coaches polls are already skewed towards those who vote, the division coordinators, and the friends of those who vote. There is little objectivity in the vote and then if you reward the seeding by giving them a home court advantage you will really be asking for trouble on how those votes go. You cannot give coaches a vote that would determine if they get a home game in the playoffs or not. No way you can trust them to do the right thing if it brings an advantage like that.
