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...
