: : I read a post about division placement and started to look at my team and other teams placements. I found that there were teams that won 10 to 20 more games than a number of teams over a two year period and did not move at all. three moved down. In my case teams that beat my team two times
: : moved down. ( and had better records) So i crunched the numbers and so far there are some things that do not add up. I suggest if you are not satisfied with your placement to check the numbers..
: Two thing s to keep in mind if you are "crunching the numbers"
: 1) only games against other Southern Section teams count for placement points and for overall record. For instance a team who was 20-5 may only be seen as a 15-5 team if 5 of their wins were against City Section teams.
: 2). Still haven't figured out how they add the playoff points. An example would be helpful.
The playoff points are listed on the CIF website. All that happens is you get additional points added to your total for each round of the playoffs. It all depends on your division. But, for example, the winner of the open gets far more points added to their total than division 6. Flintridge prep won their division (5AA I think) and subsequently moved up to 3A this year mostly because of thre added power points. They added 24 points to their season total for winning (as did Price). Since they probably played about 24 games, that raised their average by a point. A point in this system is very significant. If you lose in the first round, you only add a couple of points to your total. You divide your total by regular season games only, not playoffs. Additionally you do not count games against teams outside the southern section, which is quite ridiculous. Some teams play a ton of city or out of state tournaments and none of those games count toward placement. They need to come up with a way to count those games, perhaps using the maxpreps final ranking and saying a team in the top 2000 would count as D1, 2001-4000 D2, etc.
