Ok, we are down to the last week of the regular season and the playoff picture is pretty much set. Who will play who in both 6A & 5A, and where?
I don't know all I know is that 2-5A is going to sweep 1-5A in the 1st Round.
If Bel Air makes the playoffs, will they be D1 or D2? If they are D1, who will drop? Del Valle or Eastlake?
Coronado will play the winner of Odessa Permian vs Lee Rebels. It will be good experience to play OP at legendary Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.
It is still a bit early but here are my projections for 6A:
Permian vs Coronado
Lee vs El Dorado
Montwood vs Midland
Pebble Hills vs San Angelo Central
Permian and Montwood would host. Im not sure about the other two.
Del Valle vs Chapin
Bel Air vs Andress
Bowie vs Eastlake
Burges vs Parkland
The 4th playoff spot in 1-5A is definitely up for grabs. El Paso, Bowie, and Irvin all have a 2-4 record. Not sure how 1-5A does their playoff tie-breakers. Logic would dictate head to head then point differential. But something tells me they do coin flip.
However if logic prevails and the favorites win out next week, then Bowie will beat Jeff, Irvin will beat Austin, and El Paso will lose to Burges leaving Bowie and Irvin tied for fourth at 3-4. If 1-5A does head to head, Irvin gets in as a result of their win over Bowie and will most likely face Eastlake in the bi-district round. But again, I think 1-5A uses a coin flip to decide tie breakers....
On the 2-5A side, things are pretty much decided. If Bel Air defeats Ysleta it does not matter what Canutillo does as Bel Air has the tie breaker on Canutillo and Bel Air would get the fourth playoff spot. They would be big school along with Del Valle.
If Bel Air loses and Canutillo beats Eastlake, then Canutillo would get the fourth playoff spot and would go small school with Eastlake then becoming the second seed big school behind Del Valle.
Interesting time of the season!
Eastlake will have a walk in the park if Bel Air makes the playoffs. Del Valle will have a tough match up against Chapin.
Bobcat this will be a good game no El Paso team will get mowed down.
Every single 1-6A team out of El Paso is going to be eliminated in the 1st RD of the TX ST PLAYOFFS. I guarantee it! You heard it here first.
no it won't
1-5A might get even crazier. If Austin beats Irvin (which it might) and Jeff bests Bowie (they got momentum) and EPHS winds up losing as expected, then there is a five way tie for the last playoff spot. Anyone have a five sided coin?
what's confusing. this has been the case for a while since they want to 4 teams.
that's classifications and divisions again what's confusing.
Boxing, Wrestling, NCAA FBS vs NCAA FCS.....size does matter....lol
Montwood was up 55-34 going into the 4th and thats when Midland came back. Similar to this last game vs Pebble Hills, final score was much, much closer after Montwood went up by multiple scores. I dont know if they started playing prevent or the players just got complacent or maybe even tired. That is some concern going forward.
Quote from Felix Chavez story on game
The Rams build their lead in the second half and led 55-28 and 58-34 before Midland High scored a handful of touchdowns for the final margin.
Yes they scored 20 in the forth quarter on Montwoods 2nd and 3rd string. I don't believe that will happen this time. All year our 2nd string has played in almost all the games. Montwood is ready for the playoffs. Next man up if needed Go RAMS.
A week away from the playoffs and that means that right now is about the time when out of town dads, brothers, or whomever out of town come into this forum. I've been coming to this message board for years and those of you who have also know this. So those of you that just started coming to this message board this year be ready cause these out of towners will come all of a sudden 2 to 3 of them and at times in herds all at once several of them to this message board talking a big game especially in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the playoffs. If you choose to stay quiet that's fine I and I'm sure a couple other veterans of this message board will go toe to toe with these out of towners as we have done so in the past.
Spartandad Montwood did play they're starting QB it was his first game back.
In 5A Division 1 the scenarios are as follows
Del Valle will play the loser of the Andress/Chapin Matchup
If Bel Air wins then they will play the winner of the Andress/Chapin matchup
If Bel Air loses and Canutillo wins then Eastlake will play the winner of the Andress/Chapin matchup
If Eastlake is in Division 2 then they will play either Bowie, Irvin, El Paso, Jefferson, or Austin
Parkland will play Burges.
If Canutillo ends up in the playoffs then they will play Burges and Parkland will play either Irvin, Bowie, El Paso, Jefferson or Austin
Hope this clears up things for everyone!!!!!
The playoffs start this Friday for Austin, Bowie, El Paso, Jefferson, and Irvin. Win and increase their chances for the fourth playoff spot in 1-5A. Lose and stay home. Good luck to these schools and their athletes as they reach for the Texas State Playoffs.....
Any team can win any given day. Look at EPHS losing to a weak Jeff 22-0 this past Friday. Montwood don’t take Midland lightly, they have even more reason to wanna win (besides wanting to advance to area of course) considering how they lost to y’all earlier in the pre season. Just do what y’all do best and win. More importantly prove all those basin f**kers wrong.
I personally would like the head to head toe breaker; but what f just what if Eastwood beats Montwood. They will be tied with the winner of the PHHS vs ED winner. Will there be a coin toss; so are playoff matchups really set already?
By the mighty power of my Hammer El Paso teams, sss plural, will reach the 3rd round of the playoffs or my name isn't Thorsito God of Thunder.
Noone answers because they know Montwood is going to pounce on Eastwood.
