    High School football playoffs WTF?

    Why are there teams that are 4-5 making the playoffs. I guess I don't pay attention to high school much anymore. However when the hell did 4-5 teams start making it?

    There are a lot of 3-6 teams in there too, and one 2-7 team.

    If you field a team this year you get to play in the post season.

    We went 8-1 my senior year and didn't get in. A 4-5 team that we beat 52-6 did get in. Another team in our district, who didn't even manage to score a single point in any of their district games, beat that same team 50-6.

    That was annoying to say the least.

    Isn't it the same sort of things that lets 4-4 teams make it to the Big 12 championship game instead of 7-1, 6-2, and 5-3 teams?

    In Illinois you have to have a winning record to qualify for the playoffs.

    This happened last year when they expanded the playoffs from 16 teams to 32. I don't have a problem with it, take basketball for an example, an 0-20 team still gets to participate in districts and they still get their shot at going to the state tournament. They won't make it but at least they get a chance.

    In class 4A there are 48 schools and 32 now make the playoffs.

    Re: High School football playoffs WTF?

    I'd like to see some statistics on the number of kids/injuries for these teams with poorer records getting in.
    The Iowa High School Athletic Association has figured they can make some jack with extra games, but at what price?


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    Didn't all of you want to get into the playoffs when you were in school?

    Why is it so bad to let more kids get into the playoffs?
