Re: Cut / Added College Programs

This is their first year. It is an NAIA program, but their coach has aspirations to turn it into a D1 program. I believe the coach is from Bulgaria.

Re: New USAWP website

I'm curious how others view this 'improved' website now that you've had to, perhaps, get rosters filled out for a tournament. My impression is that someone made a financial decision to switch their solution provider, but didn't actually do the DD to determine if this new company had any idea about h...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D5 Thread

Just did a little bit of tweaking to my spreadsheet and noticed a very interesting thing. This being an abnormal year, the power ranking process is not working quite as well as in 2019, it seems to me, as I see some D1/D2 teams not performing well at all and some lower division teams performing very...

Getting the ball live

I have a quick question regarding the "getting the ball live" rule. Defensive player commits ordinary foul and knocks the ball forward about 1 meter. offensive player moves inside to get the ball now at 5 meters with defender behind him. As the offensive player "pops" the ball u...

Re: Question on rules

I'm going to answer this in a new post - I hope you don't mind.

I'm no expert, but I think this could be an interesting discussion so it deserves to have its own topic, in my opinion. :-)

Yep - Thanks. Must have fat-fingered it when I put them in my spreadsheet.

Re: 2021 CIFSS D1 Thread

interesting new tool http://polocoach.com/cifss/ratingsreport.php It would be interesting to know how they calculate the ratings. Strength of schedule seems to make a difference, which I've often thought is not a very good indicator of how good a team really is. A 10-0 team that plays mostly weak o...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D1 Thread

@Oldtimer, I'm not the expert, but based on the games I have watched over the last 3 months, I don't see HW ranked over HB at all. Unless something has changed, there was a SIGNIFICANT experience and talent gap between those two teams. I think: 1. HB, 2. MD, 3. HW is probably how i'd rank them. But...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D1 Thread

You all are much better at handicapping this division by seeing games than I can do simply by scraping data from CIF, but with the limited data available at this point it looks like

1. HW
2. HB
3. NH

After that there isn't enough info to make rankings with any confidence.

Re: 2021 CIFSS D2 Thread

Looks like a number of teams have not reported all of their results to CIF, so this is pretty thin data. At the moment, in no particular order, these are the teams with the best looking records:

Westlake
Aliso Niguel
San Marcos
Irvine
Edison

Re: 2021 CIFSS D5 Thread

Based on current CIF data base results, it looks like the following to me: 1. Carpinteria (has beaten 4 teams in a higher division and not lost to a D5 team) 2. Downey (has beaten 5 D5 teams and one higher division team) 3. Burbank (has beaten 3 teams in a higher division) 4. Centennial/Corona (5-0 ...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D3 Thread

Based on admittedly thin data scraped from the CIFSS database, D3 looks something like this: 1. Brea Olinda 2. Thousand Oaks 3. St. Francis 4. Rancho Cucamonga 5. Troy 6. Walnut 7. Chadwick After that is a mix of teams. Will need another few weeks of data to start sorting things out, I think. Thousa...
