Given some comments that I've read here today and just to clear up misconceptions in general I figured I'd post this.
The top 4 going into conference week don't automatically get playoff berths.
Its the top 4 at the conclusion of conference week along with the top 2 scorers during that week that aren't in the top 4 already.
The conference week is still technically part of the regular season. It isn't going to be a bye week for the top 4 (cough, gofer, cough).
