Here are some new/old rules on the national tournament
1: we will be allowing fan votes for the national tournament, however unlike the Florida tournament, the fan vote is all or nothing, meaning that whoever wins the fan vote gets a 2 vote tally added to the existing expert votes (not a tally count like in the Florida tournament)
2: expert votes will include posters on this board as well as experts from other national high school football sites
3: this year seeding was removed so every game should be treated as a neutral site contest, in addition for those not familiar treat rematches as new games, meaning if a team faced off twice during the actual season, treat the matchup in the tournament as if it would be the third matchup of the year between the teams, if they faced off once, treat it as the second matchup of the season when they meet in the tournament
4: the team with the most votes at the end of each round will advance after all votes from all platforms are tallied
I'll post the podcast once it goes online tonight, we also have a special guest planned to help with the release of the national tournament brackets later tonight so you all won't want to miss it!
Did a little research yesterday and found out the so called best state for high school football has 3players on Ohio state(1starter),1 player on clemson, 0 on lsu and 1 player on uga(back up qb that will never see the field). So you cali folks must know better than the top college programs?
East has made a rapid ascent into the national scene. They challenged Centennial two years ago and surprised many with an upset of De La Salle last year. They move up in class from 4A to 5A looking to take their place as the king of Utah football and validate several top 25 preseason rankings when they take on the incumbent 5A champs. On the other side, Bingham has been synonymous with high school football in Utah and has represented Utah in several postseason classics and against national teams. The game should be a hard hitting affair pitting the upstart versus the big, older brother. How do you have and what are your thoughts on the game?
