    What is the point of a regular season if everyone makes the playoffs?

    Hurricane and Snow Canyon each won 33% of their games this year. Their reward is for us to pay to get the teams to Tremonton and Cache Valley so they can have a shot at the state championship. Would anyone complain about having the top four teams from each region go to state rather than all six teams?

    We really need to reevaluate our priorities in our education system. Total waste of money for most of us.
