Just so you guys know, there was some SERIOUS DRAMA at the CIF-SS Council meeting that had NOTHING TO DO WITH TRANSFERS …

During the Century League’s final appeal of having the Sunset League (Los Alamitos et al) taken out of the PAC-5 and placed in the Southwest Division, the league made the suggestion at Wednesday’s Southern Section Council meeting that the Sunset be placed in the Inland Division and the Sierra League be placed in the Southwest.

The Century League reportedly contacted all the schools in the Sierra League to inform them of this proposal and those who responded reportedly liked the idea, but the Sierra was handcuffed because it did not originally appeal the new playoff grouping proposal.

The council voted down the suggestion, but the fun wasn’t over. The Empire League, which is also part of the Southwest Division, was up next and momentarily sent a room that just hours earlier had voted 41-40 to pass part of the controversial transfer proposals into a frenzy by moving to have ALL PLAYOFF GROUPING PROPOSALS denied and revisited in two years during re-leaguing.

Technically, legally, you’re not allowed to suggestion such a thing. But even CIF President Bill Dabbs momentarily was thinking that it was a valid request because “telling” the section that is HAS TO APPROVE the playoff grouping proposals is not reasonable.

A lengthy debate ensued and for a while the playoff grouping proposals were hanging in the balance. Then, things calmed down and a vague rebuff of the Empire League’s proposal put the fire out.

But I’m telling you, for several minutes it felt like the council was going to vote on whether to even enact ANY of the playoff regrouping proposals.

Aram’s take: In my opinion, moving the Sunset from the PAC-5 to the Inland makes way more sense in terms of competitive equity than moving the Sunset all the way down to the Southwest. Yes, the Southwest makes way more sense geography-wise, but as we all know geography is an argument that people often use to support their point when it’s convenient. And of course, the Sierra League is a way better fit in the Southwest than it is in the Inland where the league has won THREE playoff games in two seasons.

  • CIF-SS vs Arizona allstars

    speaking of CIF-SS coaches, the all star football game between CA and the Arizona all stars, the SGV has 2 players on the 43 player roster for southern CA:

    JR Nelson of Wilson (Univ of Montana) and Travis Santiago CO (APU, the game will be in AZ on June 23

  • New York

    These divisions are so insulating. How many teams from the SGV have the opportunity to play teams from other counties in the playoffs? How many OC, Riverside or San Bernardino schools play teams from other counties in the playoffs? Aside from larger schools, it seems that these divisions are just extensions of leagues…they are so local.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I believe I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I am having a look forward on your next put up, I will try to get the grasp of it!
