: : : : CIF playoff system does not accomplish the main goal of a playoff system. The best teams get to participate. 17 teams that were ranked in top 10 in various divisions did not make it or get a chance to play in. My team being one of them. A team auto qualified in their league because they added an extra game against a league foe who rested their starters. This is fine. But if teams had to participate in a play-in this would not play in to the situation.
: : : : What do they have to lose. However this change has to be approved at league level. That would help alleviate the lack of league equity at the d-3 level and down. If you are upset with this situation and want change discuss this in all league meetings and be heard.
: : I believe it time to take it to higher level. the state level. It obvious there to many school members in southern section that cant even manage simple playoff by sbowing intregrity of being fair to teams that deserve be in the playoff
: Why not guarantee top three only and then rest are at large based upon MaxPreps ranking? What if a league has four teams in six team league ranked in top 10 and yet fourth cant get in because a team with a 9-17 overall record as a fourth place team from an 8-team league gets in?
: Also if its based on playoffs, like the idea a poster made about if you don't win a first or second round game in playoffs, you don't go up a division?
If you are that borderline on making the pkayoffs them you really didnt deserve it anyways. Do better and next year you can show why you deserve to be there. If you are whining about the system then figure out how to do better and schedule better within the system. That is the coach and AD fault, 100 percent. Dont blame CIF for not being able to achieve your goals
