The email was sent to ADs all over the state from the NWDAB Secretary. This was an information only email and was a suggestion from Cbus to keep everyone in loop. District presidents were already aware of it.

it’s obvious you are aTaft fan and will never understand unless Taft gets the #1 seed. So let’s just agree that a system that works the best may not be perfect and move on. The fact the all district reps support the idea says something.
Fan of good basketball, not necessarily Taft. Look through the SWDAB site over the years, many times especially in D3/D4 teams with an average record are seeded above teams with a great record. That was my only point, it is not an extreme situation.

I get your point you are trying to make but the fact a there is no system known that will take every situation for 800 teams and deal with it perfectly. Even teams with perfect records are not always given top billing. The beautiful thing is with basketball everyone makes it in and the games decide who is the best. Not a formula, not a board and not a fan.

@spirit454 I heard from a SWOH coach last week and he said they received an email from the NWDAB secretary telling them they are using the RPI this year and telling them they are doing it across the state to see if it can be used in the future. It also says they want to do the pilot to see how closely it compares to actually seeding at the end of the year. Two thoughts:

1. Why is the NWDAB pushing this so hard? The secretary even offered to input scores for people if they send them to him. Sounds like he REALLY wants this to happen in other districts for some odd reason. You would think, if there was support from OHSBCA and OHSAA, a request for a pilot would come from them, not the secretary of the NWDAB.

2. I think this is GREAT and follows everything I have said in this thread. If they can tweak it to match reality, I'm all for using it. They recognize the seeding by coaches is the most accurate and they want to match that closely. Good for them!

that’s not any different than what he did last year lmao.
