So there is every team in the area's place in the standings as well as their matchup for week one of the playoffs. The 1v8 winner will play the 4v5 winner and the 3v6 winner will play the 2v7 winner. The higher seed will receive homefield in each round of the district playoffs. Consider this to be your place to discuss what you think of them and what do you think will be the matchups throughout the district rounds. Which one seed is most likely to miss the finals? Who is a darkhorse (3 seed or below) who you think has a chance at playing spoiler? As far as I can tell, there are zero teams that I can see appealing their seed as most every spot featuring teams who played in succession has the winning team on top. On Monday, I will start the first round prediction thread so be looking out for that but consider this your space to discuss any and all questions until then. If anything is confusing to you, I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on everything related to this process so ask away. Also, some of the point totals may slightly shift with some Saturday games being played but no seeds should change. If they do, I will update you all immediately. Thanks.
Great Work as always Sideline.
I appreciate it Malden.
Kennett got a win and still got the lact seed? Please help with this one.
I've got a question someone might be able to explain, how is it that Charleston and Malden ended up with the same record and they both lost to Caruthersville and ctown lost to sikeston malden lost to p'ville, but malden somehow got the 2 seed over ctown?
Because Maldne played up in Class more games than Charleston I would suspect. I know they did the last game anyway. That could have been the deciding factor
The one game I want to see is the Charleston vs Malden game. Of course I can't be there bc I'll hopefully be watching Cville in the 2nd round. That will be the game to watch IMO.
mule, Kennett's one win was against East Prairie. Their strength of schedule is so bad that it almost hurt teams to play against them. Lift for Life played up in class a few games and had a couple of close games that help their point margin. Meanwhile, Kennett lost each of their games by 13+ besides the last one and never played up in class.
mz259, Charleston got more bonus points for playing up but also had two losses by 13+ while one of Malden's losses was by 9. Plus, Charleston had to pull out some close games (20-14 over Hayti, 14-10 over New Madrid, 16-8 over Dexter) while each of Malden's wins was by 13+. The team's had a close to exactly the same strength of schedule so Malden's advantage in average margin of victory barely put it over Charleston's advantage for playing up in class more. You really have to split hairs. Every point matters.
Wow I never knew NMCC and potosi were that close. Man that's close! Not that it would really matter, they would still play each other, just at different locations. The top 3 teams in class 3 are deffinately head and shoulders above the lower 5.
Buck, Potosi had a BAD second half to their schedule. They won their first three and haven't won since. They lost to Desoto this week. You guys have a good chance of going up there and getting the win this week.
Thanks for the answers. I agree with you cheese that will be a heck of a game between the two.
Possible spoilers include Hayti, St. Vincent, or Thayer in Class 1; Malden or Charleston in Class 2; Fredericktown in Class 3; Cape Central, North County, or Hillsboro in Class 4. I don't see anyone upsetting the top seeds in Class 5.
Portageville, Ste. Gen, and Jackson will have the hardest time winning their districts IMO.
Trust me, no one from Caruthersville is overlooking Malden or Charleston. We will have some key guys back by that game but the coaches and players will be focused one team at a time.
Well i would say last nites performance by sikeston was a heavy dose of realitycheck. One thing for certain is u cant fault their effort or desire, the boys give it their all. However as the turnovers continue to pile up at an incredible rate, at least 5 per game, its understandable i guess that confidence is taking a beating. This far into the season its tough to believe it can be fixed, but lets hope! That being said, when u add in the turnover factor i think the dawgs can be beaten as early as the 2nd round of districts. I still dont see them beating sullivan if they get there. I would LOVE to be wrong about this!
That loss for Sikeston was better for them then a win if that makes sense!
Well speaking from experience Sikeston is going to have to find some passing to go along with their rushing attack. Caruthersville had that problem last year, 5000 or a little more rushing yards going into the quarterfinal game against MRH last year. So they stacked the box making us have to try to beat them with the pass. Smart move by their coaching staff because that was our weakness.
I know Sikeston relies on the run alot more than the pass and good coaching staffs with good athletes will key in and take that part of your offense away.
I understand why u say that bleed but in my opinion no loss is a good loss. Maybe some losses are less bad than others ifya wanna split hairs. Bottomline is sikeston has a serious turnover issue.
As does SG and if they don't get it fixed they won't make it far
Please correct me if I am wrong but "IF" C'ville wins district 1 we will have to go on the road to play the winner of district 2 and "IF" we win that game there is a chance we will have to go on the road again in the semi's. This new playoff format is for the birds also I don't doubt C'ville in any way, shape, or form and should walk through the district but upsets do happen and we are not overlooking anybody. Good luck and safe travel to all of the teams and fans!!!!
I think after the district rounds the playoff format is essentially the same as last year and who gets home field is dictated by the number of playoff home games you have had so far and if both teams have equal number it alternates each year, i.e. Dist. 1 winner hosts in odd years and dist. 2 in even years. Haven't seen a full bracket yet.
St. Vincent went on the road 3 straight games when they went to the dome a few years ago. It was an even year and district 1 could be on the road for every playoff game if the "wrong" team keeps losing. I think St Vinny made 3 trips that were 4-6 hours long.
Sikeston appears to be on a path to play Cape Central,
IF Sikeston cannot stop it's "fumbleitis", it will not advance. Exchanging the football should be second nature at this time of the year. It's astounding to me how this cannot be a science by now seeing that it's offense is reliant on the run. By the same tokein, shotgun snaps should be at the numbers. Fundamentals and attention to detail are the two most important aspects this time of year.
