Scrogcast: The ‘logic’ of CIF-SS hoops playoff seeds and Fan Laws

The Mission Prep boys basketball team is on the road to start the CIF-Southern Section Divisional playoffs, which would be fine if the Royals weren’t the No. 3 overall seed in their bracket. They might even be on the road for the first two rounds should they advance. How can that be?

For the first half of this episode Alex and I discuss that slap in the face and review where the other local teams wound up in their respective divisional playoff brackets. We had to record in the lunch room, so please don’t mind the reverb. We’ll be back in the regular studio next time.

The quality improved when I went to the Fansmanship.com headquarters to talk to Owen Main about the responsibilities fans have in support of their teams. Two basic fundamental laws of fandom are handed down, using Cal Poly and, specifically, men’s basketball as a backdrop.

There’s also a spirited discussion about Long John Silver’s that you will not want to miss. So, stick around for that, and let us know what you think.
