As always, the numbers listed left-to-right in parentheses are the teams’ playoff won-lost record, number of playoff appearances, state championships and then the OHSFCA point value. The value is based on 1 point per playoff appearance plus 2 points per playoff victory plus 3 points per playoff championship. The formula comes the Ohio High School Football Coaches Assoc.

Which is a ridiculous formula, as it places equal value on the early years (when 12 teams in the state qualified) and today (when 448 do). This is like equating winning a Nobel Prize to having your name in the phone book.
 
Let the roll call begin…

”Ytown, where is Navarre Fairless in your rankings?”

and

”Can you please post the Top 50+ schools?"

I agree wholeheartedly but as I said above it comes from the Ohio High School Football Coaching Assoc., not me.
 
I don't want to speak for him but I think that's part of what Oil Filter is talking about. In those early days of the playoffs qualifying teams only had the opportunity to win two games.
Absolutely true. Those teams also didn’t have to face quite a few potentially superior teams that didn’t make the playoffs.

Have to agree with this. Points should really be more associated with the round you won. Less points for early round games. A 1 vs 16 or 1 vs 8 should not be the same as 1 v 4.

You mean like all those sub .500 teams that qualify now? I'm sure the prospect of playing a 3-7 Fairfield team would have scared those 70s Moeller teams senseless. :)

It does place a premium on Titles…. Which is what the playoffs are all about.
 
If possible, could you please post the Top 50+ schools?
