: : : It pays to lose for a few years, then you get to play in the lowest division and win.
: : They are not a good team and they are not very well coached. This will be a quick and not pretty game.
: : City really needs to re-evaluate how they send teams to state.
: : No one below D1 should go, and they should only take 1-2 spots per state division and force their teams down divisions like SS to make everything more competitive.
: Are talking about LA City or all sections when you say below D1 should not go to State?
It really depends year to year.
Outside of Open teams and the D1 champ and runner up, it's hard to justify taking anyone else.
I'm not picking on Cleveland, more the City in general this year. It may be true in SD and Central too, but I have not seen them play.
My feeling is the best teams in each section go to State - period.
There should really only be three divisions - Open, D1 (current D1 and D2), and D2 (current everyone else).
There are too many teams in state playoffs. But I understand - it's just a money grab.
As for Cleveland, they came in a distant fourth in their league - and got CRUSHED by Granada and ECR.
Congrats to them on winning D2 City, but that should be it.
Too many good/more deserving teams are at home as they had to play in harder playoff divisions.
