FORFEITS

FORFEITS 


Is it clear to anyone out there how Maxpreps finally calculates forfeits?

2 Boys basketball teams in D 4 have multiple forfeits on their schedules (for whatever reason- inelligible players, failure to file paperwork etc. who cares..)

It seams like their records on the official AIA website 8-4 and 6-5 will not reflect the actual losses by forfeit.  The seem to just take away the games as if they never happened.

The school guilty of the forfeit gets no loss counted against them and the school who did things right gets no win.  Is that right?  That sounds like if I were a D4 school scheduled to play, say - Gilbert Christian and I was staring at a guaranteed loss by 50 pts- why not play an inelligible player!  I get no loss. And the other school gets no win??

Is that crazy?  What am I missing...

I haven't checked the website, but Carl Hayden forfeited four games.  One of those games was against Westwind Prep which no longer has a team.  How would that work?

Check out Thatcher/Pima Jan 9th 0-1.  The records on the official AIA website reflect a WIN for Thatcher and a LOSS for PIMA.  With a score of 0-1 I can only assume it was a forfeit.  Thoughts??

Re: FORFEITS 


Forfeits are deemed uncountable in algorithm. That means that forfeits do not COUNT as a win or a loss. Carl Hayden was allowed to erase the four forfeits from their record, then they rose in the rankings. They are currently in the sectional playoffs even though they had four games which should have counted as losses due to forfeit, however the AIA said no, they just never happened. While I agree it is an absolutely idiotic move, this is what they decided. And the AIA doesn't change it's mind.
