: Any new intel on changes this year? Someone said earlier that conference record would be weighted more heavily? That would make sense.
Many/most leagues are created geographically, not competitively. Most leagues have 1-2 teams that are way better than everyone else. So putting more weight on league play - that you can't control - only hurts competitiveness in the playoffs - which is the ultimate goal.
Take the league with Windward. Windward and Sierra Canyon are state level contenders pretty much year in and year out.
They both pretty much blow everyone else in their league out by 50+. A couple years ago Sierra Canyon beat a team in their league by 70 points and didn't suit up their starters.
I'm sure there are plenty of other examples.
