It is that time again. May marks time for the yearly slugfest of C&C’s Preseason Magazine Cover Tournament. Our West Virginia Prep Football Insider has become an enormous hit across the state and making it on the cover is something special. While we analyze, evaluate, and rank Big Boards ourselves- BUT we let the cover be in the hands of our followers and the state!
It is a 32-team single elimination tournament. The vote-in round consists of 12 2020 non-playoff qualifiers (teams with multiple 2021 Big Board prospects of a certain ranking). The state has one week to vote what four teams are the last ones in the entire 32-team bracket. After that, every round is the same: teams will face off 1v1 and whichever receives more votes will be victorious and move onto the next round until one remains. The initial 28 teams already in the tournament qualify by having multiple Big Board prospects and made the playoffs in 2020. Seeding was decided by the number and ranking of Big Boards prospects.
The team who wins will be on the cover of our magazine and have a special article included. The two highest placers belonging to the other two classes (whatever they may be) will also have special articles in the magazine for them.
Prior magazine cover teams will not be in the tournament (Ravenswood, Poca, and Oak Glen). Teams that have already won prior special articles by being their highest placing in the class will be bypassed if they do not win the entire contest but are the highest placing in their class yet again (Parkersburg South and Man). They still can win the overall cover, however.
In past years, we have spotted people cheating by those voting more than once. Our software tracks IP addresses and adjusts the percentage based off any multiple votes from the same IP address. There is no way to cheat. If there is ever a quick change in percentages in a short amount of time- it is the filtering of repeat votes and proper correction. Vote once. We completely recommend to share the poll with as many people as possible to win! Have fun but don’t cheat!
