: Teams that play in tougher leagues get penalized by not making playoffs if they do not place in top three in league.Example Campbell Hall, who is one of the best teams in 4A, will finish in fourth place in their league and may not make CIF playoffs if their are 32 auto qualifiers. CIF has made some great strides with new policies. However expanding playoffs by adding a expansive wildcard qualifying round would help kids schools and CIf as far as revenue and equity is concerned. There are teams who are very good who have been the victims of being in tough leagues and not being able to compete. A wild card round would be a step in right direction to solve this problem. Your thoughts?
Playoff is suppose be competitive equity. The best of best teams are suppose have the chance to compete in playoff for section and state title. unfortunately there big differential in league competition. You can evaluate the best teams by league competition. With that being said. Team should not get penalized because they are in tough league. Cifss does need to make the decision of letting these team into playoff this year. So they can really evaluate for next year to resolve this problem. It not fair to kids are the fans knowing that their team deserve to playing in playoff and watching a team in playoff that they know is not better than them. Kids goes playoff games to watch team that are better than them. So they will know what take to play in the playoff. Let BEST OF THE BEST PLAY IN PLayoff
