: Congrats to the 3rd 4th 5th place teams of their leagues that made it to the CIF Championship what a huge accomplishment well deserved. Should be some tough battles for the some of the 3rd 4th & 5th place teams in their league who are playing each other for CIF Championships.
The same scenario has been happening for years even before the competitive balance approach playoff divisions. The only time you will not have that scenario is when they went to League competitive balance for about 2 years in the late 2000s. Then all the 3rd, 4th, 5th place teams from leagues complained they could never compete in the same division as their league powerhouse (Mater Dei, Brea, Poly) and demanded they scrap that plan. Personally I think it is the most logical playoff plan because a CIF Championship in theory should not be easier to win than a league championship but too many schools vote against that plan and want no part of being placed in a division with their league powerhouse. You just canít please everyone and with 600 differing agendas it is hard to have a consensus of what plan is best. I think the current plan is pleasing most of the schools because they feel like they can at least compete in their division at some level.
