2014 Tiebreakers

In some cases, we need to break ties other than those at the top of the division.  We need to determine 2nd-4th place in each division.  Officially these are still ties, but we break the ties to decide how to award BWB Bucks for division placement and possibly to figure in which post-season tournament teams compete.  See the BWB Rules for full tiebreaking criteria.

 

Additionally, there are seeding/home-field ties that need to be resolved.
