From the comments of the last post on the playoff tournament, also Kenny Powers thinks it’s retarded. I’d rather have a traditional playoffs, with or without everyone making the post-season, but this will do. I don’t think this format will prevent the best team from winning the title, it just appears to be very roundabout.
The goal is to have an A playoffs and an AA playoffs in the future which will make things easier.
The AA is wide open in the seeding
The Hurricanes play the Matadors, and the Bulldogs play the Warriors tonight, that sets up either the Hurricanes as Allegheny champs (win or bulldogs loss) or the Bulldogs as Allegheny champs (hurricanes loss and win).
Lets assume two things scenario A) Hurricanes as champs and scenario B) Bulldogs as champs.
Scenario B is a lot less messy so I will start with that. Bulldogs beat Warriors, and Matadors beat Hurricanes. Bulldogs Allegheny champion, 5 seed is Hurricanes (AA: 12-4 = 0.750), 6 seed is Ducks (AA: 10-7 = 0.588, 11-6 = 0.647, or 12-5 = 0.706), 7 seed is Militia (AA: 8-6 = 0.571, 7-7 = 0.500, 6-8 = 0.429), 8 seed is Matadors (AA: 5-10 = 0.333), 9 seed is Warriors (AA: 3-11 0.214)
Scenario A: Hurricanes beat Matadors and are Allegheny champion. Here is where it is really messy.
Bulldogs beat Warriors: seed 5 is Bulldogs (11-4 = .733), 6 seed is Ducks (AA: 10-7 = 0.588, 11-6 = 0.647, or 12-5 = 0.706), 7 seed is Militia (AA: 8-6 = 0.571, 7-7 = 0.500, 6-8 = 0.429), 8 seed is Matadors (AA: 4-11 = 0.267), 9 seed is Warriors (AA: 3-11 0.214)
Bulldogs lose to Warriors: seed 5 is either the Bulldogs (10-5 = .667) or Ducks (12-5 = 0.706), 6 seed is Ducks (AA: 10-7 = 0.588, 11-6 = 0.647) or Bulldogs (10-5 = 0.667), 7 seed is Militia (AA: 8-6 = 0.571, 7-7 = 0.500, 6-8 = 0.428), 8 seed is Warriors (AA: 4-11 = 0.267 tiebreaker over Matadors), 9 seed is Matadors (AA: 4-11 0.267)
In Scenario A where the Hurricanes win Allegheny the Ducks must sweep the Militia and have the Bulldogs lose to the Warriors to be 5 seed, otherwise the Ducks are the 6.
So in conclusion: Militia are 7 seed, Titians are 10 seed, Knights are 11 seed, and Eagles are not in playoffs.
Thanks, nate for taking the time to do all the math, i wasn’t up to such an endeavor.
