Thanks for the feedback - all of this is seen by MaxPreps.
Simply put, for now, all games on the schedule count towards a team's record. That is why it's important to exclude these contests (scrimmages, jamborees, exhibitions, etc.).
MaxPreps is aware of the need to include these types of games in the future, but it is going to require a major rewrite of their software architecture. However, it is on their list of "wants" and they have proven with their last several revisions that they will achieve that goal down the road. For now, let's be patient and adhere to the policies set forth.
Thanks for your cooperation - the feedback is instrumental!
