: : : Coaches you are driving me crazy
: : : I go thru the different divisions and see where the coaches have teams ranked and it baffles me when 2 teams played head to head and you still rank the loser over the winner. I get it, sometimes you say it went into OT like Poly (who hasnít lost yet this season and is still ranked #2) over Mater Dei (still ranked #1) or it was a close game like some other divisions, but then I come across 2 teams where one beat the other by 30+ points. Really and you still rank them higher than the other. I know there are rumblings in the HS Southern Section football world of doing away with the coaches polls and going strictly by a formula for seeding, well with some of the division polls right now I can see why there is a push for that. These divisional coaches polls deserve better and some of the coordinators need to either be more transparent with their results or do a better job of educating their voter base.

: : Give an example of the point you mare making please

: Formulas never account for injury, kids missing a game, etc. Sometimes coaches might "see" something.

You can't assume a team would win if they had another player. What if someone else gets hurt the next time? What if it throws off chemistry? You have to go off of results not speculation. What's the point of playing the games if they don't mean anything?
