    Iowa High School Football payoffs are a joke!!!

    Ok I was just looking at the Register and they had the first round playoff games.

    When the State of Iowa went to 32 teams it made the playoff system a joke. In class 4A there are 9 teams with a losing record that made the playoffs. as the other classes have numerous teams with losing records in the playoffs too.

    I'm sorry but this is ********!!!!

    End rant.

    agreed, but my brothers team in 2006 beat then #1 solon, but lost to dyersville-beckman also. those three teams ended up 8-1 and we got the short end of the stick and got knocked out of the playoffs, by what rule i cannot remember. it sort of evens out.

    If it's ********, then how ******** is the setup of basketball, where every team gets a chance at postseason play?

    False. I was on that Monticello team and Dyersville Beckman had 7-2 record but they still went to playoffs. They lost to a non-district opponent, Western Dubuque.

    Basketball vs football is apples to oranges. BIG time apples to oranges. More games in basketball, its indoors, slower bounce back time, no holidays to interfere with scheduling, shorter games, etc.

    It's either have some teams with losing records get in (and get dispatched by a district champ in the first round anyway), or have teams that are 8-1/7-2 not get in.

    There are teams with winning district records but losing overall records, because their non-district games were against teams in higher classifications. Why should they be penalized for losing to a school one or two classes larger?

    That is strange. In Illinois you have to have a winning record to even be eligible for the playoffs.

    its not that big of a deal when you realize that "state" doesnt start until after Wed.

    The stupid team is when teams make top 4 in the district go around making substate tshirts and celebrating it.

    IMO, 4A football is dumber. If a 3-6 team is going to make the playoffs, you might as well let them all in.

    They actually changed it. They now call the whole thing "State" playoffs

    QFT.


    Some of you guys do realize that we are talking HIGH SCHOOL, not college or NFL football, right? Who gives a **** if the kids get one more game? It isn't about money at this point, its about the game.
