Hartnell got robbed of a bowl game today.

Re: 2012 Football Bowl Game Participants Announced 

I would agree with you, if a team got in with a 5-5 record any team with a 6-4 record should get in. Not sure why they didn't get in but would like to hear the answer.

Re: 2012 Football Bowl Game Participants Announced 

My opinion about Hartnell:
  • the Coast Conference is aligned with Bay Valley into one Bowl Game set up for the 2 north state "C League" Conferences
  • Coast Conference has three schools tied for first place- 4-1 conference record
  • in non-conference MPC beat Los Medanos and lost to ARC, Foothill, Reedley and DVC ( 1-4)
  • in non-conference Cabrillo lost to Los Medanos, DeAnza, Redwoods and Chabot, and beat Mendocino (1-4)
  • in non-conference Hartnell beat Mendocino and Contra Costa and lost to Laney, Modesto and Los Medanos (2-3)
So against the top two leagues MPC was 0-2, against the B League MPC was 0-2, and 1-0 vs  Bay Valley team, LMC.

As for Cabrillo, they were 0-1 against A league, 0-2 against B League, and 1-1 against C league

Hartnell went 0-1 against A league, 0-2 against B league, and 2-0 against the C league, the BVAL.

So on strength of schedule, MPC grades out higher --plus, MPC is the host school for the game event.

I saw Hartnell play Laney, they are deserving, but in this particular case, you can see why MPC is the Coast Conference Bowl Game representative. RTS/311120009/Loss-MPC-costs-Hartnell-bowl-bid

Re: 2012 Football Bowl Game Participants Announced 

I agree but 6 wins used to be the requirement to make a bowl game unless you didn't have enough 6 win teams. Not a big fan of a team going to a bowl game at 5-5 over a 6-4 team. Just my thoughts.

Actually none of the teams beat a "B" league team.  MPC beat los medanos who is a "C" league team.  Hartnell battled with laney and cabrillo competed with Chabot (Golden Gate champ).  Anyone who followed these teams would say that Cabrillo or Hartnell were the deserving teams.  Cabrillo allowed less than a TD per game in conference play.  Plus Cabrillo smashed MPC!

Thanks for correcting my mistake, Los Medanos is of course Bay Valley Conference.

This September schedule mismatch also happened for DVC, Chabot, Siskiyous, Reedley, West Hills. Let's hope next year produces much fewer " 0 for Septembers".

Did Chabot file an important form with state? A friend of mine said that they didn't complete a title 9 form and have to forfiet games after november?  Any truth to this?
