I have enjoyed your posts but lets face facts here:
In the past myself and many others have known about these issues even before the new system started, We have done many shows talking about how unfair this was and going back as when I was an AD I made a proposal to not allow these PPTS to be the way to go in seeding brackets.
John you have defended the AIA in countless posts when people like myself stated to you and others there were number problems. We did not have to be an engineer to see 1+1 wasn't equalling 2! But now supposedly you think you have found something many of us have known for a while.
Here is the reason why I am bringing this up. No program!!!! and I mean no program can do this the right way! That is why we have continually proposed that do the PPTs but then seed the teams not by PPTs but as a committee.
As an AD I proposed even the better to allow all teams in, seed them by committee and then no more issues.
So I am glad you found the problem you needed to see that this has been wrong but for many of us we have been preaching this fight to you and other supporters of the AIA for many years.

In D-3 I think you discount how tough the North rez teams are when you drop them for playing themselves and losing. You mention how Ft. Hills has played tough competition but not Holbrook and wRock.
Now in D-4 who has Orme played in a mere 8 games to be #1? Have you seen them? The teams below them have played very tough competition. yes, PCDs did lose but the circumstances were the following: L vs Bc was because hess got to T;s and was ejected and they lost without him. Then he was held out of the ALA game based on AIA rules and lost in a fairly close game without him. They did lose the DC game but have you seen DC? I was at the game. DC is the toughest smallball gym to play in. Yes they deserve to drop but 3 away games, 1 without hess does not make them a worse team.
ElCap lost to kenab Utah but have you seen them play? I wish you guys would do at least a top 10 rankings so we can add you to our rankings list. At www.azsportsnetwork.com we do top 15. Keep up the great work. I would love to have you guys on our rankings shows!Jan 17, 2012
