With only one week left in the regular season things are heating up in each district with teams securing their playoff positions and competing for the coveted district title.
What happens in District 1-6A if El Dorado beats Americas tonight and Americas goes on to lose their final game of the season to Franklin next week? And if MW beats Eastwood next week will they be crowned district champs because of their win over El Dorado? Or will we see a coin flip?
What happens in District 2-5A if Eastlake wins their game tonight against Ysleta and goes on to beat Canutillo next week? Could we see a three way tie between De Valle, Eastlake, and Canutillo?
What happens in District 1-5A if Andress, Chapin, and Bowie all win their respective games tonight? And Bowie goes on to beat Jefferson next week, while Andress beats Chapin. Could we see a three way tie between Bowie, Andress, and Chapin?
I guess some people are salty because their team has no chance of making the playoffs this season, while others that do don't want to see any scenario playout that doesn't include their team wining the district title outright. In any case we will know where teams stand in the rankings by next Friday! And it starts tonight in District 1-6A in a matchup between El Dorado and Americas.
Lets wait until after tonights game chief.
Take it one game at a time. Worry about the team in front of us, yada, yada, yada.
I believe if teams end up tied (same district record) then they are considered Co-Champs or Tri-Champs or whatever no matter who beat who during the season.
The coin flip only comes into play to determine playoff seeding if they are in the same playoff bracket (Big vs. Small School) to determine the #1 seed and #2 seed for the District.
Two teams got their first district loss tonight...Chapin and Americas.
What are your comments on the teams vying for district titles and the playoff picture?
In 1-6a the pressure will be on Montwood and Americas to win their respective games against Eastwood and Franklin. While El Dorado has it easier against Pebble Hills. A win by all three teams will put them in a three way tie for district.
Suddenly ELDO peeps will become Franklin fans!!!
Small school big school I think no matter the size of the school, they should do 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3, this side of Texas is ridiculous UIL is ridiculous small school big school is hogwash
So the drama continues in 1-6A:
MW beat ELD
Americas beat MW
ELD beat Americas
Could we see an upset next week between Americas/Franklin or Montwood/Eastwood?
I heard on the radio that 2-5a has a point differential tie-breaker. Im not sure how the seeding would work out if theres a 3away tie since Del Valle beat Eastlake. If canutillo wins then Eastlake is the 2nd seed in Div 1 and Del Valle the 1st. If Chapin beats Andress then it is Eastlake vs Chapin rematch and Del Valle- Andress for the 20th time in the past 10 years (feels like it).
Parkland vs Bowie is locked in as is Canutillo vs Burges/El Paso. Playoffs start now for Mustangs and Tigers.
This thread subject line reminded me of Jim Mora....Hehe
"Playoffs?! Don't talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me? Playoffs?! I'm just hoping we can win a game, another game!"
DV will be the 1 seed division I no matter what the outcome with eastlake/ canutillo. They beat Eastlake head to head. Point system is irrelevant. Eastlake will play the winner of Chapin/Andress and Del Valle will play the loser of Chapin/Andress. An Eastlake win vs Canutillo will give 2-5a a trip champion. Canutillo DV and Eastlake. A Canutillo win will put Canutillo as District champions DV 2nd Eastlake 3rd parkland 4rh
Each district has their own individual tie breaking process that all head coaches agree on at the beginning of the season. For some it's head to head and for others it's margin of victory and it becomes a point process. The tie breaking process can change from year to year
I saw on twitter Franklin will play San Angelo in first round of playoffs. November 11 in San Angelo
Midland at El Paso El Dorado
El Paso Franklin at San Angelo Central
Wolfforth Frenship at El Paso Americas
El Paso Montwood at Amarillo Tascosa
CLASS 5A DIVISION I
El Paso Eastlake vs. El Paso Chapin
El Paso Andress vs. El Paso Del Valle
El Paso Parkland vs. El Paso Bowie
El Paso Burges vs. Canutillo
Well SAN ANGELO is ranked 5th in state
40th in NATION; officially toughest overall schedule
ever in El PASO 6A football; Go Cougars!!
Glad those are just projections. Franklin @ San Angelo isn't a good match up.
Franklin will play San Angelo, that is not a projection......
Franklin @ Central set for Friday, Nov 11 7pm
AT LEAST WE GET A SHOT TO BE SCORED ON
I CAN THINK OF A FEW TEAMS SITTING AT HOME NOT DOING
CHIT ON THAT WEEKEND.
Doesn't midland Lee have a chance to get in? They play Odessa Permian which seems like an easier foe than Tascosa going up against SA central...then there'd be a 3 way tie for 2 playoff spots. If Lee were to get in they'd be division 1 moving SA central to division 2
Keep in mind that these are projections only and subject to change.
Friday Nov 11 / 7:30p
Midland @ El Dorado (El Paso, TX)
Screen shot these brackets....
If Lee, Tascosa and Frenship end up tied at 3-3, Lee is out. Not sure how many times one has to repeat this. In a three team tiebreaker, the Rebels are odd man out. The point differential puts Tascosa and Frenship ahead of Lee. Lee beat Tascosa, but Tascosa beat Frenship and Frenship beat Lee. You cant use a head to head tiebreaker BEFORE the points differential.
The reporter who covers Midland Lee reported an inaccurate statement regarding Lee's playoff chances.. The district 2 playoff teams are locked in and the playoff games against El Paso teams are set.
Amarillo is hosting a first round game and Frenship will travel to El Paso for a first round game..
updated Bidistrict/Area bracket from what I can gather on maxpreps & elsewhere tonight:
5a Big division:
Andress vs. Eastlake (winner plays Amarillo/Lub.Monterey)
Chapin vs. Del Valle (winner plays Caprock/Lub.Coronado)
5a Small division:
Canutillo vs. Burges (winner plays Dumas/Ab.Cooper)
Parkland vs. Bowie (winner plays Canyon/Lub.Cooper)
6a Big division
El Dorado vs. Midland (winner plays Keller Central/Arl.Bowie)
Franklin vs. SA Central (winner plays Timber Creek/Arl.Martin)
6a Small division
High seed Montwood/Americas vs. Frenship (winner plays Abilene/Arlington)
Low seed Montwood/Americas vs. Tascosa (winner plays Fossil Ridge/Mansfield)
If Americas loses tomorrow, Montwood is high seed. If Americas wins, I think the seeding will be decided by coin flip due to 3-way tie w/ El Dorado.
Bonus 6a Big division
Los Fresnos (District 32-6a) vs. Edinburg North
Los Fresnos is coached by Patrick Brown (former Andress HC, Franklin OC, Chapin assistant)
