Well, the regular season is in the books.
The high school football playoff-bound teams from San Luis Obispo County awaiting seeds are: in the Southern Section Northern Division, Atascadero and Arroyo Grande; in the Northwest Division, Nipomo; and in the Central Section Division V, Mission Prep.
In the mean time, I was wondering: How do all of you feel about both the PAC 7 and Los Padres League tiebreaking systems? For those who may not know, three-way ties in both leagues are broken with random-chance number drawings conducted in the preseason. Hence, that’s why Paso Robles, even at 3-2 in league play, just as Atascadero and Arroyo Grande, is out, as the Bearcats had the worst draw of the three. Would you rather some other kind of criteria were used? Such as certain points scored or points allowed in league play? Some other kind of stat?
Or, are you OK with the current system because in a three-way tie, there are simply too many arguments to be had (in other words, Paso Robles could say it beat Atascadero, but just the same, Atascadero beat Arroyo Grande and Arroyo Grande beat Paso Robles), so it’s just as well that such a pre-determined, set-in-stone method comes into play? How would you break the three-way ties?
In any event, look soon for our photo galleries from the Paso Robles-Atascadero and Righetti-Arroyo Grande games.
