10/29/15 – Reminders about Football Playoffs and Final Regular Season Week

October 29, 2015 Football Blog Updates

This is being distributed to ALL KHSAA football playing schools. If it doesn’t apply to you, please disregard.

As we prepare for 95 games to be played during week 1 of the playoffs, we ask for your cooperation as we try and pull final brackets together over this coming weekend. We have published what we have as of now, but need game times and sites confirmed so that officials assignments can be made.

A few reminders–

1) BRACKETS AND TIE BREAKERS – All information as we have it now is posted on the KHSAA website. You can find it at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4,

2) PLEASE REMEMBER TO CALL YOUR SCORE TO THE SCOREBOARD as soon as the game is over this week EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING IN THE PLAYOFFS. Many times, the three-way tiebreaker comes down to a single missing result from a non-playoff or out of state team, so all scores are important. This is the most important weekend of the year to be timely with your score report. Win or lose, home or away, please call that score in to 800-453-6882 as soon as the game is over. We don’t need stats at that point (you can log in and enter those later) individual scoring or anything, just the game score.

3) REVIEW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Many of the instructions have changed from prior years PARTICULAR WITH CONTRACTUALLY MANDATED CHARGES FOR WEBCASTING AND TELEVISION. These should be reviewed to minimize dispute. The complete instructions are at http://khsaa.org/sports/fall/football/ under the pull down for playoff Rounds 1-4, select Football Playoff instructions for Rounds 1 to 4 (including forms). The direct link is at http://khsaa.org/football/footballplayoffinstructionswithforms.pdf.

4) IF YOU ARE HOSTING, FILL OUT THE SITE FORM. If your position is already known, please fill out form FB106 online ASAP  at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FBSites2015

5) TIES AND STANDINGS. As soon as all games are reported and recorded, we will break all three-way ties and post final standings, and begin the process of assigning officials.

6) FINANCES. One of the common questions we receive is about the distribution of money and team expenses. This is covered on pages 4 and 5 of the instruction manual.
