As an Urbandale alum and fan who still regularly attends games, all I can say is WOW. The weather played into their hands, I'm sure, as Urbandale hasn't been able to throw the ball for **** this year and has had trouble defending effective passing games as well. Can't wait to see the stats on this one.
teams like waukee and urbandale shouldn't be in the playoffs. records should matter. a 9-0 team shouldn't have to play a 3-6 team, playing with nothing to lose. should the 9-0 team lose to the 3-6 team? no, but any given night it can happen.
this changed a few years ago when teams in tough districts with very good records got left out in the cold due to the rules. they went too far the other way.
Its win or go home for everyone right now. 9-0 or 3-6... shouldn't matter... You know you have to win- I can't see a psychological advantage of an underdog when in the playoffs.
You don't see the psychological disadvantage of CBAL having all the pressure on them, as an undefeated team, to avoid an embarrassing loss to a 3-6 team in the playoffs? Its the disadvantage for the favorite that creates the advantage for the underdog.
