Playoff point system has major flaws


Recommended Posts

Hagerty gets 38 points for beating 0-5 Ocoee 22-21

Viera gets 33 points for losing to 4-0 Cocoa in overtime

Miami Central gets 33 points for losing to IMG in a game they led late.

Apopka gets 33 points for losing to 4-0 Lakeland by 7 in the last minute on the road.

Booker T Washington gets 28 points for losing to Miami Northwestern by 7

I could give more examples but no need to.

In conclusion it is better to schedule bad to average teams and win then schedule great teams and lose close.

The important thing to me is getting the teams in the playoffs that deserve to be there.  If a team wins their district they should be in but once you're in then it is about the best team moving forwa

Classes 5-8 have 4 Regions.  Each Region will have 4 District Champions, and 4 wildcards(8 teams).  All District winners play at home 1st Round and are guaranteed seeds 1-4, wildcards 5-8

Here you go Panther. All district winners play at home 1st round and are seeded #1 through #4 (by season seeding points)  Dillard wins district and is seeded # 3. All teams seeded #4 - #8 go

I've been saying that all along. Of course if you just win your district, points don't matter.

Except that depending on whether you are seeded 1 to 4, it will affect not only who you play in the first and subsequent rounds, but whether you are home or on the road. 

District champs gets you no lower than #4 seed and home for round one. That's good when you consider that the old system did the same. 

I don't see why schools schedule teams with little chance of winning with hopes of getting points. 35 points is better than 33. Besides, why play an IMG Academy when there are other good programs that can get you potentially 50 points that you actually have a shot at beating?

I don't like the fact that you don't get anything for playing higher classification teams.  I realize that a good 1a team may be harder to beat than a bad 4a team but a bad 4a team will smoke a bad 1a team.  If classification doesn't matter then do away with classification.  

It's because if we did that teams like Columbia would have no reason to play a 1a Madison team when we could get more points by playing Deland for example 

 

The current system is to reward playing good teams not just high class teams

Well 3 of 4 wild cards projected to come from that district so odds are you all will host 1 of 4 teams from district 16

And how come Carol city would get Jensen beach ????

District champs are locked as seeds 1-4 in order of points among district champs 

 

Wild cards are seeds 5-8 based on points 

 

And because Jensen Beach is listed as projected district champ but that could change

That's the exception if you seeded 4a vs 1a best against best down to worst vs worst 4a wins every single game.

    • FSU is baaaaad.    But, good for those Florida boys!
    • I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people who routinely got their butts kicked when they played football. 
    • The running clock does not assure that a team will back off and avoid injuring players on the opposing team. Having officials fail to enforce the play clock during the running clock can add to the frustrations of players that are hoping to get some actual playing time late in the game, especially when it's apparent that the trailing team is making no effort to run plays in the prescribed time. I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people that came up with participation awards to make every kid a "winner". 
    • I suspect the reason why there is a 'running clock' rule now is because too many times, the opposing coaches didn't see eye to eye on how many points were enough (or how many points were too many) - especially in rivalry games, or when the subs should start playing, or when timeouts should be called, or what plays are appropriate to run, etc.   To a certain extent, the running clock rule was implemented to save a coach from his own pride.  Remember a few years back?  In the third quarter, running clock was "optional" for the team that was getting beat.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter that it was mandatory.   But, too many 'old school' coaches felt like agreeing to running clock in the 3rd quarter was a sign of weakness or, as you put it, throwing in the towel.  So they refused to do it.   And the 35 point differential at the beginning of the 3rd quarter turned into a 50+ differential by the time the 3rd quarter ended.  Hurt egos are one thing.  Hurt players are another story.   I'm pretty sure that's why running clock now becomes mandatory at whatever point in the second half the difference becomes 35 or more.   At that point, it's just a matter of getting the game over with a little sooner to protect the players.  Oh, and it's worth noting that not all schools are as deep as others.  Some schools are lucky to have a full squad of second-stringers. 
    • One thing I will say about some of those 8A schools in the Orlando area is that they've either never had success or they have a student population that doesn't value football. Schools that tend to be large with a heavy population of Hispanic students tend to care more about soccer, baseball and basketball than football. It's mainly because their families didn't grow up watching football so it isn't as big of a deal. A great example is Poinciana. They are historically one of the worst football schools around but they won a State Championship in basketball a few years ago. So the athletes are on the campuses for sure. But if the programs have no history of success then the athletes see no reason to play. Another factor is the laid-back transfer rules. Now, kids can essentially consolidate talent on teams. So that also adds to some of these massive blowouts - especially when districts consist of teams like Cypress Creek being made to play teams like Osceola and Lake Nona. Of course they'll get blown out. It's going to be like that for the foreseeable future though.
