Re: Clarion Ledger Preseason Rankings
The power point system is a sham. Pad your schedule and go 8-2 and get rewarded mean while a team that actually plays a tough schedule might get left out if they don't win their district. For example if Newton didn't win their district they would have made the playoffs. Or look at Prarie View, they padded their schedule and played a weak district, got awarded the #2 overall seed, almost lost to Wayne in the first round who didn't even have their do it all QB who was their only offensive weapon. And then got trounced by Tri county a week later.
The top two teams from each district should be in the playoffs automatically and the power points should decide the 4 wild cards. Go back to North and South and let the wild cards just be the top 4 power point ratings left regardless of north and south.
