The fact that you know there's a picture of pecan pie indicates you already go to the Main Chat forum, so wouldn't you rather just go to one place?

No, there's value in having a sanctuary.

Re: Possible seeds


Can someone please explain why the top six seeds are already determined? Shouldn't the 14-0 and 13-1 teams have equal shots at the 1st and 3rd seeds, respectively?

they use the following to break ties:

1) Division Winning Ratio. (+1/2 per win, -1/2 for loss)
2) Head-to-Head results (best winning percentage against each other if more than two teams)
3) Best Record against common opponents
4) Best Win (continuing through all wins)
5) Strength of schedule
6) Coin Toss

Adam is right, except they only actually use steps 2-6 to determine the seedings for division winners. Step 1 is only used within a division to determine the divisioon champ. This year VTech had the best win (Maryland) and Nova won the common opponent tiebreaker with Minnesota.
