: 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.
There are different levels of champions in every section in America. The difference is they do it by school size in most of them and competitive equity in our State. There is no difference. In power states there are d5 teams that win their section that are good enough to compete in d1 but they can't due to enrollment. They rip through the playoffs. Isn't it better that our best 32 teams are aligned in each division based on their ability. This creates close games. Would it be better if they did it on enrollment. You would have 50 point massacres all the way through. There is no perfect situation but this is the closest it gets and you can best believe that other states will follow in our model. As long as there are going to be multiple divisions (there always will be because of money for CIF in hoops and football) there is no other way. Bottom line there are no blowouts anymore and more upsets are happening because there is balance. CIF made sure the 60 point games are a thing of the past.
