: : : so it seems that this year cif has decided to not accept teams that do not have a 500 record and did not come in at least in 3rd place in their division. no petitioning will be allowed. so some divisions may only have between 20 and 24 teams that fill the criteria. extremely disappointing for the teams that schedule tough games in preparation for league and playoffs.
: : THE 5A DIVISION MIGHT ONLY HAVE 10 TEAMS IN THEIR PLAYOFF. RIGHT ON
: There are so many things wrong with CIF choosing to do this
: 1) they will not be able to field full brackets in the majority of the divisions 3-6. Cost CIF and schools money by having so many BYES
: 2) For teams that have been moved way down (Example a D2 team that is now in D5) that gets hammered in league but is in correct in playoffs to do some damage will never ever get a chance to get to playoffs, even though they are a high seed
: 3) Not one team will schedule tough games from now on if you are in a decent league. You need to schedule cream puffs to make playoffs. This makes for decent teams to have a really tough time trying to get games
: 4) Tournaments are going to be tough to field. Nobody wants to play 4 or 5 tough games. Teams are going to be looking fro weak tournaments
: 5) Not only does it count against you record wise, but just scheduling tough teams and beating them cost you points. Again, meaning more teams will schedule cupcakes so they can drop divisions.
: 6) Many highly seeded teams ARE NOT GOING TO GET IN
: CIF needs to change this ASAP. Too many things wrong wrong with this flawed system. Football changed it, now basketball needs to follow
I agree. I purposely scheduled a really tough pre season but now it is going to bite me in the behind. Now we are going to see coaches going back to light scheduling next year. I for one, will have to chambge my pre season games.
