16 team playoff bracket

Post by Play Hard » September 6th, 2017, 1:39 pm

In the 2017 bylaws it is showing the same playoff bracket that was used in 2016. Is this correct? Or are we using the 2014 brackets where R1 plays R2 and R3 plays R4 in the first round?

I'm just curious as to why it would matter? Both brackets have 16 teams in them. Not trying to be rude, just curious as to your request.

Typically there is a rotation on the playoff brackets so you don't play the same teams year after year in the first round of playoffs. Inquiring minds want to know who they may be playing first round.

Yes, I agree @Play Hard. Potential playoff teams can anticipate which teams they may possibly draw in the 1st round, and begin to make preparations accordingly...scouting, etc. Nobody wants a "blind date" in the 1st round. If we use the 3-year rotation that has been followed in years past, then I believe the format used in 2014 should be the same one used in 2017. But, I don't make the rules...or interpret them. I guess we'll just have to wait a bit longer.

Got it. Thank you for the clarification. I wasn't aware of the 3 year rotation.

We use a rotation, but I haven't really looked at that yet. It will not be the same as 2016.

We should have the playoff brackets posted on this site this week. Due to the Bantams and the unusual setup in Jr. Midgets, it wasn't as easy as taking the 2014 version to this year, but it will be very close.
