Things under Obama got a lot worse before they started to get better – and they only started to get better after the GOP took over half of Congress and put the brakes on spending.

Professor, I think your list of Trinity League champions may be in violation of Title IX.

CIF placed Bosco baseball in D2 for the playoffs before the start of the season. So now are they going to follow through with this brilliant decision and have the Trinity League Champion in the D2 playoffs.

Leagues are irrelevent in playoff division groupings. Per CIF:

"For your information, we no longer will be using league based playoff groupings. Instead, individual schools will be evaluated and placed into divisions on a yearly basis for the sport of baseball utilizing a formula which includes the following factors: regular season record, strength of schedule and CIF Southern Section playoff performance over a two-year period."

Based on their "competitive-equity formula", J Serra was #1, OLu #4, MD #10, SMCHS #17 and Servite just made the Div. 1 cutoff at #42. SJB was #48, thus D-2.

The new playoff placement process is a big step in the right direction. However, its most glaring shortcoming is that it ignores the results of the current season. Bosco was placed in D-2 because of what its teams did in 2015 and 2016. It could have fielded the best baseball team in high school history this year, and it still would compete in the D-2 playoffs. That's why I can't understand why the CIF can select the best (current season) boys and girls basketball teams for the sports' top playoff division, but it can't do the same for football or other sports.
