Tie-Breakers are NOT factored in.
Tie-Breakers ARE factored in.
Tie breaker policy to determine seeding for playoffs:
a) Any team with a forfeit is automatically seeded lower
b) Head to Head (only if all tied teams played each other an equal number of times);
c) Record against common opponents;
d) Strength of schedule (Total winning percentage of all teams played against).
e) Record against each common opponent starting at the top, one team at a time.
f) Coin Toss
If multiple teams are tied, go thru criteria one at a time until one team is determined stronger (or weaker) than the rest, then start at the top again with the “new” tied teams.
