: : : : I appreciate your insight. Since you are a bit more versed in the selection process, do you feel that this process by which the state slides up (and down) teams is fair? Do you know if their is formula/criteria? I don't have the insight, but it seem like conflict of interest could sway members of the selecion committee. A few phone calls here and there could land you in a favorable situation in the state bracket. Let me know...I appreciate the education.

: : : Its easy

: : : Each section forms a committee. They rank their teams accordingly. For example, the Southern Section ranks their teams 1-44. Doesn't matter what division they are in. They justify each slot with computer ranking and head to head. For example, if you look at the Southern Section Seedings you can see that Wilson LB was ranked 17 Santa Monica 18 Bishop Amat 19 San Clemente 20. All the way down the list. Lancaster was ranked 28.

: : : Once all sections have their teams in order the State slots them and ranks them and puts teams in sections. The one thing you can for sure say is that no team lower in ranking in the same section can be seeded ahead of a team higher.

: : : Where they put teams is up to them but State clearly did the following:

: : : Teams 1-6 Open
: : : Teams 7-16 D1
: : : Teams 17-22 D2
: : : Teams 23-27- D3
: : : Teams 28-36- D4
: : : Teams 37-44 D5

: : All subjective BS favoritism, etc

: Well not really

: Open was done in order 1-8 based on how they finished

: Here was the rest of the Southern Section 1-22
: 9. Harvard Westlake (4 seed in D1)
: 10. Troy (5 seed in D1)
: 11. King (6 seed in D1)
: 12. West (7 seed in D1)
: 13. Orangewood (8 seed in D1)
: 14. Fairmont Prep (10 seed in D1)
: 15. Marlborough (12 seed D1)
: 16. North Torrance (13 seed D1)
: 17. LB Wilson (1 seed D2)
: 18. Santa Monica (4 seed D2)
: 19. Bishop Amat (7 seed D2(
: 20. San Clemente (8 seed D2)
: 21. Crean Lutheran (10 seed D2)
: 22. Mira Costa (16 seed D2)

: I see no problem with he way they were ranked. None whatsoever. The problem is when Sacramento makes the cutoffs and sends our teams to the different brackets. There is no favoritism for the Southern Section. Its CIF State in Sacramento that makes the brackets. They obviously had our cutoff at 22 for D2

: Not sure what you mean by favoritism. The only favoritism is iff good teams were ranked low. Everyone wanted to go lower.

How does Troy and HW face each other again in the second round? They should have been opposite sides of the bracket. Also how is Orangewood below the two teams they beat and they were semi finalists?
