#2 Whatever It Takes (6-2) -- won h2h vs Sec, 0-1 common opp (BBOF) vs Sure

Hopefully you can follow along as we meander thru the myriad NFL tiebreakers. Here goes. There are four teams tied at 6-2, 2 of which are from the same conference. Therefore, you figure out from within that conference which teams dominates the other...
6ft-sj: second coming 63, SJ hibachi 6ft 57 (OT)
...Therefore, SJ Hibachi can finish no higher than Second Coming. Essentially, SJH6's fate depends on the strength of Second Coming in relation to the other teams outside the conference.
I might also note that in the NBA, when you have 3 conferences (well, in the NBA they are "divisions") -- when you have 3 "groups" as it were -- you still take the top four in order of seed, but you make sure the three conference winners are definitely in the top four.
Head-to-heads are the best determiners of tiebreakers, obviously. But there was only one other head-to-head amongst these four teams...
6ft-sj: whatever it takes 66, Second Coming 51
That means Second Coming can't finish higher than Whatever It Takes no matter what. As such, we know this so far: WIT is higher than Sec which is higher than SJH6. What about Sureshots? There are no head-to-heads amongst the 6-2 teams involving Sureshots, so we must compare the next tiebreaker: record vs common opponents. We leave SJH6 out of the equation because they've already been dominated by WIT.
The only common opponent for WIT, Sec, and Sure was BBOF. WIT was 0-1 against BBOF, Sec was 0-1, and Sure was 0-2. Therefore, we know that Sure cannot finish higher than either WIT or Sec. With WIT and Sec remaining, we already know that WIT is ahead of Sec.
But we don't necessarily know if Sure is ahead of SJH6. So we gotta check them head-to-head. There was no actual head-to-head between Sure and SJH6, so we goto common opponents: Visual Basic and Cali Xpress. Sure beat both VisB and Cali while SJH6 lost to VisB but also beat Cali. Therefore, Sure is ahead of SJH6.
And that's why we have this...
#2 Whatever It Takes (6-2)
#3 Second Coming (6-2)
#4 Sureshots (6-2)
#5 SJ Hibachi 6FT (6-2)
Let's continue to the teams stuck at 5-3. There were no head-to-heads between BBL and Cali, so we look at common opponents: ZerOne 6FT and Brave Hearts. BBL was 1-0 against each of those common opponents while Cali beat ZerOne twice and BrvH once. So Cali is 3-0 while BBL is 2-0. That intra-repeat against ZerOne proved to be the difference. Obviously, had ZerOne managed a split against Cali, BBL would've finished higher than Cali. So that's why the next two teams are...
#6 Cali Xpress (5-3)
#7 South Bay BBL (5-3)
Finally, let's look at the teams tied at 4-4, Visual Basic and Just The Tip. There were no head-to-heads between VisB and JTT, so we goto common opponents: Sure, BBL, and SJH6. Both teams lost to Sure, but while VisB lost to BBL and beat SJH6, JTT beat BBL and lost to SJH6. So we are tied even after looking at the records against common opponents.
This is where it gets interesting. The NFL's tiebreakers state that the next one after common opponents is something called "strength-of-victory". That's it. No explanation. So dreamleague has always interpreted this to mean point differential in games won.
Why not? I think it's better to look for comparisons against the greater community versus a vacuum. For example, you might intuitively say, why not take the point differentials of the games that only involved common opponents? Well, yeah, but the NFL says strength of victory and whatever is point differential in games involving common opponents (which includes losses), that's NOT "strength of victory". So I'm gonna trust that there's a good reason the NFL went with this and probably spent a million bucks hiring some math PhD guy to come up with it. My theory is that it's another way to test the team across the whole of the league rather than just against a select few teams in a vacuum. I'm all for a resume across the entire regular season than just a narrow subset.
One other thing dreamleague abides by is that in basketball, a blowout's a blowout. After 20 points, it's pretty much a done game. Beating a team by 20 is as sound as beating a team by 30. And if there's a team knowingly trying to beat a team by 30, then there's a problem. It degrades into desperate 3-point heaves from 25 feet by the winning team. That's not basketball. Therefore we cap any point differential discussion at 20. It doesn't make a difference in our case, though.
VisB won their games by 4, 6, more-than-20, and 6. That's a strength-of-victory equal to 36. JTT won their games by 1, 3, 4, and 6. That's a strength-of-victory equal to 14. Visual Basic wins the strength-of-victory tiebreaker over JTT.
And there you have 'em. These are the matchups for the first round on 4/5...
upper-p1a: #9 Just The Tip at #8 Visual Basic 6FT
upper-p1b: Winner-#9/#8 at #1 Basketballs Of Fury

6FT-SJ playoff seedings (Lower Bracket)
TUE 3/31 (11:00PM) -- Here are the seeds in the Lower Bracket of the 6FT-SJ. All teams get SINGLE-elimination status. Yep, it's one-and-done here.
#1 ZerOne 6FT (3-5) -- beat Bkwy head-to-head
#2 Breakaway (3-5) -- 1-1 h2h vs NBN, 2-4 common opp (intra-conf) vs NBN, won h2h vs BrvH
#3 Nothing But Net (3-5) -- 1-1 h2h vs Bkwy, 1-5 common opp (intra-conf) vs Bkwy (cannot finish > Bkwy), no h2h vs BrvH, 2-1 common opp vs BrvH
#4 Brave Hearts (3-5) -- 2-0 h2h vs MIR/Dime, lost h2h vs Bkwy (cannot finish > Bkwy), no h2h vs NBN, 1-1 common opp (Bkwy/MIR) vs NBN
#5 Make It Rain (3-5) -- 1-2 h2h vs BrvH/Dime (cannot finish > BrvH), 1-1 h2h vs Dime, 2-4 common opp (intra-conf) vs Dime
#6 Dime Squad (3-5) -- 1-2 h2h vs BrvH/MIR (cannot finish > BrvH), 1-1 h2h vs MIR, 1-5 common opp (intra-conf) vs MIR
#7 SJ Barons (2-6)
#8 Uptempo (1-7) -- no h2h vs Rite, 1-2 common opp (SJB/Dime/NBN)
#9 RiteNaow (1-7) -- no h2h vs Upt, 1-3 common opp (SJB/Dime/NBN)
Let's walk through it. There are a whopping SIX teams tied at 3-5, but what we always do first (like in the NFL) is look within each conference to see which team dominates the others from the intra-conference perspective.
In the Southwest, ZerOne is all by itself at 3-5 there. In the Northwest, we have Breakway and Nothing But Net. In the Pacific, we have a 3-team deadlock with the Brave Hearts, Make It Rain, and Dime Squad.
Breakaway dominates Nothing But Net as follows. They split their two head-to-head meetings, so we goto the next tiebreaker: common opponents. Breakaway went 2-4 against those common opponents, who happened to be all in the Northwest, while NBN went 1-5. Therefore Nothing But Net cannot finish higher than Breakaway no matter what.
The Brave Hearts dominate Make It Rain followed Dime Squad as follows. In the threesome head-to-head, the Brave Hearts went 2-0 while MIR tied Dime at 1-2 amongst the three teams. Now, we figure out the tiebreaker between MIR and Dime. They split their head-to-head meetings, so we look at common opponents, which were again intra-conference. MIR went 2-4 against those common opponents while Dime went 1-5. Therefore, Dime Squad cannot finish higher than Make It Rain which cannot finish higher than the Brave Hearts, no matter what.
So now we must figure out which of these three comes out ahead: Brave Hearts, Breakaway, or ZerOne. This one was easy. ZerOne beat Breakaway head-to-head, which beat Brave Hearts head-to-head, so ZerOne is on top of Breakaway which is on top of Brave Hearts. Officially, it's a 1-0 (ZerOne), 1-1 (Breakaway), and 0-1 (Brave Hearts) standing between the three teams.
Since the fates of MIR and Dime are dependent on how the Brave Hearts compare outside of the conference, since the Brave Hearts don't compare well, MIR and Dime are going to get pushed down and be relegated with low seeds.
Let's not forget NBN, which remember cannot finish higher than Breakaway. Since Breakaway cannot finish higher than ZerOne due to the head-to-head between Breakaway and ZerOne, we don't even bother checking NBN vs ZerOne. Instead, we check NBN vs Brave Hearts.
NBN and the Brave Hearts split their head-to-head meetings, so we move onto common opponents, which were Breakaway and Make It Rain. Both teams beat MIR but NBN split its two meetings with Breakaway while the Brave Hearts lost their only meeting against Breakaway. That means NBN is above Brave Hearts.
As such, the two teams dominated by the Brave Hearts intra-conference-wise, MIR and Dime, get pushed all the way down to the bottom of the 3-5 logjam. And that is how we got to this...
#1 ZerOne 6FT (3-5)
#2 Breakaway (3-5)
#3 Nothing But Net (3-5)
#4 Brave Hearts (3-5)
#5 Make It Rain (3-5)
#6 Dime Squad (3-5)
The SJ Barons are the only team at 2-6 so they get the #7 seed. To figure out the tiebreaker between Uptempo and RiteNaow, quite surprisingly these two cellar dwellers never faced each other despite the late-regular-season matchups based on standings. So we goto common opponents.
The common opponents for Upt and Rite were the SJ Barons, Dime Squad, and NBN. Uptempo went 1-2 against this group of common opponents while RiteNaow went 1-3. Therefore, NBN snags the #8 seed while RiteNaow gets the #9 seed. It hardly matters though, since #8 faces #9 in the play-in. The winner immediately advances to face #1 ZerOne.
And there you have 'em. Here are the matchups for the first round of playoffs on 4/5...
lower-p1a: #9 RiteNaow at #8 Uptempo
lower-p1b: Winner-#9/#8 at #1 ZerOne 6FT
lower-p1: #7 SJ Barons at #2 Breakaway
lower-p1: #6 Dime Squad at #3 Nothing But Net
lower-p1: #5 Make It Rain at #4 Brave Hearts
Remember, it's all single-elimination so there's no Losers Bracket here. 3 wins and you're the champion (unless your #8 or #9 in which it will take 4 wins in a row).

inter-p/nw: Dime Squad (2-5) at Uptempo (1-6)
Again, with 18 teams and looking at the current standings, my guess is that we'll get 11 teams over .500 and 7 teams under .500. The bottom 7 (or whatever number it is under .500) will play in a separate Lower Bracket with its own separate championship along with championship t-shirts. That's because if we had a crystal ball in the beginning of the season, we would've stratified this division into an upper and lower, anyway.
The Lower Bracket would be a single-elimination bracket, with the #1 seed getting a first round bye if there's no #8 seed to play against. I would try to avoid having seeds #2 thru #4 (assuming they win) play another round just so that the #1 seed could play on the first weekend of playoffs. I just don't think that's as fair as giving #1 of the Lower Bracket a first-round bye, again assuming there isn't a #8 to play against.
Let's go with the example of 11 teams with double-elim in the Upper Bracket. The teams *not* subject to a potential doubleheader if they advance in the 1st round is equal to the number of those after #8 (just think of a 16-team NCAA bracket with teams missing, in this case, from #12 thru #16). So if there are 11 teams, that means there are 3 teams beyond the regular 8, which means only the top 3 teams avoid a potential doubleheader in the first round.
Of course, even if you lose the 1st round game, you'll still be alive but in the Losers Bracket dungeon. There, anything goes and you will probably play a doubleheader to keep pace with the advancement/elimination of teams in the Winners Bracket. It's impossible to predict.
I'm sure I'm leaving out some details and quirks, so you'll just have to trust me as we go, that I'm not making things up and that I don't really care who wins. I'll keep a lookout for not having too many repeat matchups in the early rounds, but with so many teams, I think that will naturally happen. If there are questions along the way, just have your captain ask me. And it's always better to ask your captain first, then escalating further if you guys are restless and can't come up with the probable solution on your own. And remember, it's double-elim so at some point you have to avoid two losses anyways. The only unfair thing I can think of is the top 2 or 3 teams facing each other right off the bat, and that of course cannot happen with our seedings.
(12:45PM) -- Check roadmap below for matchups for 3/29. Explanations coming soon.
TUE 3/17 (12:45PM) -- No recaps from 3/15, no outlook beyond 3/22 yet.
TUE 3/10 (11:00AM) -- No actual recaps from this past weekend, but I'll post some outlooks here and there for 3/15 and beyond...
6ft-sj: bbof 70, rite now 54 -- Champions from 2 seasons ago and last season's runners-up, BBOF is cruising at 5-0 and has double-elim status clinched. We will split the 18-team 6ft-sj into an upper and lower, so my guess is that we'll end up with 9 or 10 teams at .500 or better with 4 or more wins. That means there's still the #1 and possibly #2 seed to play for, which will have the benefit of playing against a low seed in the first round, and that low seed will have played its 2nd game of the day by then. Newbies RiteNaow, which is an offshoot of a team that struggled last season, are destined for the projected 7- or 8-team lower bracket and as we all know with one-and-done playoffs, anything can happen. So even though things seem bleak "rite naow" (hehe!), who knows, this team may yet go deep into the lower bracket playoffs.
6ft-sj: breakaway 40, uptempo 35 -- Breakaway is only 1 loss away from single-elim playoff and Lower Bracket status, but that might not even be a bad thing given the ultra-competitive high seeds we will likely get, such as last season's champ SJ Hibachi along with the aforementioned BBOF, the veteran previous Oakland champion Cali Xpress, BBL, veteran dreamleague franchise Visual Basic, the upstart Second Coming and anybody else not off the top of my head. They get to try to avenge a 1-point loss against Nothing But Net on 3/15 -- read on for more details.
6ft-sj: Cali Xpress 54, brave hearts 44 -- Brave Hearts (fka In It To Win It) is a solid squad and, quite frankly, I'm not surprised Cali beat them and covered the Vegas spread at that. Cali is a tough, veteran team that has won either the AAA-E or A.L. (sorry, can't quite remember) in Oakland in the past. They also play in tournaments, so actually they might be my favorite to win this division if I had to put money on it.
6ft-sj: Just the Tip 41, BBL 38 -- Buzzer beater by Gary Sikes. I know that BBL is a strong squad, so JTT must be pretty tough as well. Just goes to show, I think our 6ft-sj Upper Playoff Bracket is gonna be more cut-throat than the NBA Western Conference playoffs!
6ft-sj: second coming 63, SJ hibachi 6ft 57 (OT) -- Another team I have not seen, Second Coming. For them to beat two-time champion SJ Hibachi, wow.
6ft-sj: sureshots 63, zerone 54 -- ZerOne's in a tough spot, although like I've been praising these top teams in the 6ft-sj, maybe this season it's OK to go down to the Lower Bracket. After all, there's still championship t-shirts to be won there. I usually do that anytime we have a ton of teams because if we had a crystal ball and could accurately predict things, we would have had separate 6FT-SJ "Elite" and 6FT-SJ "Premier" divisions. But alas, in the Lower Bracket you only get single-elim status, so it's still not a good idea to tank. And there's no lottery either! Anyhow ZerOne's got a standings-based matchup against BBL on 3/15. Ouch. After that, they'll have 2 more standings-based matchups so attaining double-elim status in the Upper with 4 regular season wins is certainly within reason.
6ft-sj: visual basic 53, nothing but net 49 -- I am impressed by Visual Basic's standing this season, currently 4-1. They have been a little helter-skelter in past seasons when I've scorekept them, but I bet they've got much more chemistry now. That's what happens when you "pay your dues" a few seasons and get "beat up" in dreamleague, then finally become a "veteran" squad. They've already clinched their 4th win and therefore double-elim status in the cut-throat Upper Bracket, but they belong there. Nothing But Net can't lose another game otherwise they'll end up with single-elim in the Lower Bracket, and they've got a winnable repeat against Breakaway on 3/15, then 2 more standings-based matchups to close out.
6ft-sj: whatever it takes 72, make it rain 46 -- Make It Rain moved up to this division from last season's sweep and championship, but I didn't think they'd be 1-4. I have not seen Whatever It Takes, but if they've been more than hanging albeit atop the standings with the likes of vets BBL and Brave Hearts, then they are for real. Make It Rain's in the same predicament as all the other 1-4 teams. If they get relegated to the Lower Bracket, guess what, they're my pick for the Lower Bracket championship simply because they've already won a championship before and know what it takes (yep, "whatever" haha!) to win a bracket. However, if it's the Lower Bracket, they won't have the benefit of double-elim status which they needed last season.
Here are the matchups for 3/15...
intra-rep: Nothing But Net (1-4) at Breakaway (1-4) -- This is nw-5th vs nw-6th. Breakaway beat Uptempo (by 5 pts), which beat Nothing But Net (by 14 pts), which beat Breakaway (by 1 point). So what I did was, I went by point differential just amongst these 3 teams. Note that for the entire season and division, we wouldn't just go by point differential between tied teams because, like the NFL rules suggest, you don't want to keep tied teams in a vacuum, at some point in the tiebreakers you need to compare to the greater populace. Interestingly and perhaps related, the NFL uses "strength-of-victory" instead of straight point differential (as in, no use of point diff in games lost, who knows?) as a tiebreaker before straight point differential. Don't wanna dwell on this too much at this early juncture, but just an example.
intra-rep: Uptempo (1-4) at SJ Hibachi (3-2) -- Here's where maybe winning a tiebreaker in the standings doesn't help. Uptempo with its 14-point defeat of a tied team and therefore in 4th place not 5th or 6th, their reward is to play against perhaps a wolf in sheep's clothing, SJ Hibachi in 3rd place. Ouch. Vegas line has SJH to win by 8 pts and also clinch double-elim status, although it's still worth SJH's while to climb up the standings because who wants to play an elite team in the first round?
intra-rep: Visual Basic 6FT (4-1) at Second Coming (5-1) -- Second Coming destroyed Visual Basic in their first meeting, 72-55, so here's Visual's chance to prove that was a fluke. They'll need to prove themselves this one so they feel confident they can go deep in what will assuredly be the most cut-throat playoffs in all 12 dreamleague divisions.
inter-sw/p: Basketballs Of Fury (5-0) at Whatever It Takes (4-1) -- Inter-conference matchups. Here's where things really start getting interesting. This one's a good litmus test for both teams, even though both have already clinched Upper double-elim status, so it really doesn't matter. Well, maybe it does. Whatever It Takes certainly doesn't want to limp into the playoffs and needing to play an elite team in the first round. So are they an elite team themselves? Let me just say, you don't wanna head into THIS playoff bracket limping in at 4-4.
inter-sw/p: Sureshots (4-1) at Just The Tip (4-1) -- Just The Tip beat BBL on a buzzer beater earlier in the season so they are technically currently ahead of BBL in the standings and draw the Sureshots.
inter-sw/p: ZerOne 6FT (2-3) at Southbay BBL (3-2) -- Due to a quirk in the schedule in which, to accommodate Cali's bye request for 3/15, we had to force a matchup between Cali vs BraveH last week. The other option would've been Cali vs Dime and we purposely didn't do that. So now ZerOne gets the unfortunate circumstance of playing against BBL because we have to skip Cali this week in the matchups. It certainly would be even less fair to have ZerOne face a team higher than BBL, and if we went lower than BBL, then I'd be forcing a lower team than ZerOne, like SJB, to face BBL. So without any other options, here you go. In any case, if ZerOne wants to prove to itself it can hang in the upper echelons of 6ft-sj, we might as well get it done this weekend against a team like BBL. Even if ZerOne loses, they'd still be one more loss away from relegation to the Lower Bracket. Whatever happens will happen.
inter-sw/p: SJ Barons (1-3) at Make It Rain (1-4) -- Good test for both teams. On paper, though, I think both teams could end up in the Lower Bracket. They haven't been playing like they belong in the Upper (yet!).
inter-sw/p: RiteNaow (0-5) at Dime Squad (1-4) -- Dime Squad is still alive for double-elim Upper Bracket status, actually. RiteNaow needs a ray of hope, a statement win.
6FT-SJ season roadmap
