  1. Region 1: South Greene and Happy Valley can each guarantee a home game by winning. Even with a loss, the Rebels can do no worse than third, while the Warriors could drop as far as fourth. Hampton needs a win and a Happy Valley loss to hang onto their title hopes, and stays in the running for the top two with either of those results. A win guarantees the Bulldogs a playoff slot, which will be at least third if Happy Valley also wins. Sullivan North cannot win the league, but has clinched a playoff spot. A loss leaves the Raiders with a ceiling of third, or fourth if Hampton wins. Cosby needs a Hampton loss to keep its playoff hopes alive. Even then, they can only manage fourth. Region 2: The winner between Oneida and Meigs County wins the region. If Oneida loses, the Indians are second; Meigs County, could still lose its home game if they lose and Wartburg beats Rockwood. Wartburg Central, as discussed above, can remain in the race for second with a win and an Oneida win. On the other hand, a loss eliminates the Bulldogs altogether; a win clinches a playoff spot only if Hancock County (from outside the region) beats Cumberland Gap. Cumberland Gap and Rockwood cannot finish better than third, but both clinch berths if Rockwood wins. if both lose, the Tigers (but not the Panthers) are capped at fourth. Region 3 Tyner wins the region. Bledsoe County can clinch third with a win, or fourth if Tellico Plains wins. Tellico Plains can clinch third with a win, or fourth with a Bledsoe County win. The Bears' hope for second place ends if they lose and Polk County wins. Marion County needs a win to stay in the race for third, and also needs a Bledsoe County loss to keep a chance at second. A win or a Bledsoe County win will put the purple Warriors in the playoffs. Polk County can do no better than third; that possibility ends if Marion County wins, and a Wildcat loss means outright elimination. Region 4 Watertown's Thursday win was half of what they needed to clinch the region. A Westmoreland win will finish the job. The win also advanced the Purple Tigers' floor from fourth to third; a win by Cascade would guarantee a home game for Watertown. Trousdale County now needs a win to stay in the title race as well as a Westmoreland loss. A win and a Westmoreland win would land the Yellow Jackets in exactly second place; a win guarantees third place, while they clinch a playoff spot with either that or an East Robertson win. East Robertson needs a win and a Trousdale County loss to stay in the hunt for first, and one of those two results to stay alive for second. The Indians clinch third with a win, or fourth with a Trousdale County win. Westmoreland lost its chance at the title on Thursday. They now need a win to keep even third place in their sights, and to stay alive for second also requires a Trousdale County loss. Cascade is capped at fourth with a loss and at either second or third with a win (the former requiring also an East Robertson loss). Jackson County had to win Thursday to avoid playoff elimination, and they didn't. Region 5 The most complex yet. Forrest is in the playoffs. The Rockets can clinch third with a win or if either Lewis County or Summertown wins; second with either a win or a Lewis County win, either accompanied by an Eagleville win; or first with a win and a Loretto win. If Summertown loses, they are out of the title race unless Forrest and Lewis County both lose. A win, on the other hand, guarantees at least third place, and if Forrest and Loretto also win, then the blue Eagles are exactly second. Lewis County clinches a playoff spot with a win, or third place if Summertown also wins. A loss plus a Forrest win would take the Panthers out of the title race, and if Summertown also wins, from the second-place race too. Eagleville needs a win plus losses by Forrest and Lewis County to have a shot at first. The maroon Eagles are capped at third with a loss at all, or fourth if Lewis County wins too. Loretto can do no better than second. A loss lowers the Mustangs' ceiling to fourth, while a Summertown win limits Loretto to third. Community must win and have Loretto and Summertown lose to avoid playoff elimination. Region 6 Houston County has clinched a playoff bid. A win gives the Fighting Irish the region; a loss could eliminate them from first place (if Scotts Hill wins). On the other hand, a Scotts Hill win guarantees the Irish no worse than third. Waverly can win the region tonight with a win and a Scotts Hill win; a loss immediately eliminates the Tigers. Waverly can finish no worse than third, period. Riverside needs a win and a Houston County loss to stay in the title hunt; a loss and a Waverly win would lock the Panthers out of the top two. If Riverside wins, they finish no worse than third. Hickman County can at best finish second; they are capped at fourth if Houston County and Riverside both win, or at third if one of them does. On the other hand, a Riverside win clinches the playoffs for the Bulldogs. Scotts Hill needs a win to stay alive. If they get it, their best possible finish is third. East Hickman is dead in the water. Region 7 Peabody clinches first with a win and an Adamsville win, or second with a win or a Union City win. The Golden Tide has already clinched at least third. McKenzie needs a win and a Peabody loss to stay alive for first. A win locks the Rebels into the playoffs; if Gibson County or Peabody also wins, McKenzie is at least third. Gibson County stays in the title race with either a win or a Peabody loss; elimination from a home game would require both of those to fail and also a McKenzie win. A win or a McKenzie win guarantees playoffs for the Pioneers. Union City and Adamsville each have a cap of second place with a win and fourth with a loss. In addition, Union City can seal a playoff berth with a win plus wins by Peabody and GIbson County. Halls can do no better than third. The Tigers can be eliminated in two ways: (a) they lose and either Adamsville or Union City wins, or (b) Adamsville and McKenzie win (even if Halls itself also wins). A loss or a McKenzie win limits Halls to fourth place. Region 8 Fairley clinched third place with their Thursday win. The same result means that Mitchell clinched fourth. MAHS missed a chance to clinch the playoffs Thursday (indeed, since Fairley also won, they would have clinched third with a win). Douglass was eliminated from first place by Fairley's Thursday win, but by winning their own game, the Red Devils preserved their shot at second. Trezevant was also eliminated from first Thursday, by their own loss, and would have been locked out of second had MAHS won. Hillcrest kept its ceiling at third place by way of MAHS's loss. KIPP retained its chance at third place with the MAHS and Trezevant losses, and must now win to continue holding on. Hamilton and Manassas were out even before the Thursday games.
  2. (Note: When I say that something is possible, I only mean it is mathematically possible. In other words, it is possible for Red Boiling Springs to beat McCallie...) Region 1: It is known that all four will qualify, Unaka fourth. If Cloudland beats Jellico, they are first and third respectively, with Hancock County second. If Jellico wins, it's chaos for those three. Region 2: Coalfield is in. If either Sunbright or Oakdale wins, they're guaranteed no worse than third. Greenback can clinch a playoff berth with a win. If Sunbright also wins, the Cherokees will get a home game; if not, they are still locked into the top 3 if they win and Oakdale also wins. Oliver Springs retains all possibilities if Greenback loses (anything from first to out). If Greenback wins, then the Bobcats can clinch a bid with a win, and are eliminated from first place if they lose. Harriman cannot win the region. A loss ends the Blue Devils' chance at second place, and even at third if Oliver Springs also wins. Midway needs a win to remain in the title race. If they lose and Greenback wins, the Green Wave cannot get a home game. Sunbright must win to keep its playoff hopes alive. Even if the Tigers win, they are out if Harriman and Oakdale both win, and if one wins, they cannot reach third. In no case does Sunbright host the first round. Oakdale can finish as high as second, although that possibility requires both Greenback and Midway to lose tonight. If the Eagles themselves lose, theirplayoff hopes are destroyed altogether. Region 3: Copper Basin will finish at least second. South Pittsburg is the only other team with a chance at first place. If either the Pirates or the Sale Creek Panthers win, both clinch playoff places, and whichever one won (or both) are guaranteed no worse than third. Whitwell and Lookout Valley can finish no higher than second, and both must win for either to keep that hope. Either team is capped at fourth place if it loses (whatever the other does). Region 4:Monterey and Clay County have clinched top-3 finishes; Gordonsville clinches a playoff spot with a win. Any of these three can win the region. Jo Byrns, Picket County, and Red Boiling Springs can finish no higher than third. In fact, RBS can finish no better than fourth, and a Gordonsville win would also end Pickett County's shot at third. Region 5: Fayetteville has won the region Cornersville clinches a playoff berth with a win, and it will be at least the #3 if Huntland also wins. Huntland cannot clinch tonight, but also cannot be knocked out of the race for second and a home game. Mount Pleasant needs losses by both Huntland and Cornersville to remain in contention for second. Richland and Moore County need to win to remain in the hunt for second. Moore County, in fact, cannot even finish third with a loss. Region 6: Huntingdon will host in Round 1, and can clinch the region with a win. Hollow Rock-Bruceton is thus eliminated from first with a Huntingdon win; a McEwen win, on the other hand, guarantees the blue Tigers postseason play. McEwen must win to remain in the first-place race, and also needs for Huntingdon to lose. The Warriors clinch a playoff spot with a win, and at least third place if HR-B also wins. Collinwood can at best finish second; if HR-B and McEwen both win, the Trojans' ceiling drops to third. Wayne County can finish as high as second with a win, but no better than fourth with a loss. Perry County needs the upset of Huntingdon to remain in any playoff contention, and even then can only hope for fourth place and the trip to Fayetteville. Middleton is out. Region 7: Lake County will finish at least third. Greenfield and West Carroll are also guaranteed to make the playoffs, and each can clinch third place tonight. The Yellowjackets need a win to do so, while the War Eagles' own result does not affect the question: what they need is a Humboldt win. South Fulton and Gleason cannot make the top two; each drops out of the third-place race with a loss, and South Fulton can even be eliminated if the Red Devils lose and Greenfield wins. Dresden and Humboldt can finish no better than fourth, but cannot be eliminated tonight. Region 8: I haven't yet redone the analysis to account for Freedom Prep's forfeits.
  3. Not an automatic suspension, but the losses are enough that they cannot hope to qualify..
  4. Here's the thing, though. The alignment you are showing is based on the earlier votes. But then an item after those indicated accepting another proposal. That suggests that something else is changing... Here's what I would have done. Three regions. The true Eastern teams (Grace Baptist, Silverdale, and King's) plus the two clearly east of Nashville (MJC and MTCS) form an East region. The middle would be seven (Columbia, Clarksville, Davidson, NCS, GC-Franklin, DCA, and Ezell-Harding), or move one of those (probably Ezell, maybe Donelson) to the East. The west would be the five in Jackson and Memphis. Use essentially the same playoff bracket as is current in AA.
  5. Indian: what you're describing is basically what Illinois does. Adapting it to Tennessee would give you five classes, which would mean a minority of 5-5 teams qualify if you include Division II, or all but one if you exclude D2. (If you draw the lines based on next year's classes, you can only have four classes and still have to exclude some 5-5 teams.) This will take me a day or two to work out.
  6. Word is that Sullivans North and South are about to join the list, with the new West Ridge High taking their place.
  7. The school itself closed (and the university attached has since also closed), but Chattanooga Girls' Leadership (charter school) has opened on what was its campus.
  8. Rule 5-1-4 applies: "Unless first touched by R beyond the neutral zone, if the kickers recover a scrimmage kick in or behind the neutral zone, the ball remains live and belongs to K and the down counts." Thus, if it was fourth down, the receiving team takes over on downs; if not, the kicking team keeps the ball, next down.
  9. Region 1 Sullivan North wraps up the title tonight if they beat Happy Valley. The Raiders are already guaranteed a home game. Happy Valley needs both a win and a Hampton win to clinch first. They have clinched at least third. South Greene clinches a playoff berth (indeed, third or better) tonight with a win. They remain in contention for second even with a loss. Cosby and Hampton are both playing for third at best, and lose even that possibility if Hampton loses. Neither would be eliminated from the playoffs tonight, though. Region 2 Meigs County is in the playoffs. A win tonight takes the region. If they lose, they still clinch top three if either Cosby or Rockwood wins, and can still win the region unless Wartburg beats Rockwood. Oneida can claim the region by beating Meigs County if Wartburg wins, and is out of the race with a loss. A win or a Wartburg win is enough to get the Indians into the top three, and a playoff berth is certain. Rockwood maintains an outside shot at the title with a win if Oneida also win. A loss plus an Oneida win would eliminate Rockwood from second. Rockwood clinches playoffs with a win. Cumberland Gap's best case is second. To stay alive for that, if they win, one of Oneida and Rockwood must win and the other lose; if they lose, then specifically Rockwood must be the one winner. Cumberland Gap is in the playoffs if Rockwood wins. Wartburg Central must win to stay alive. If they do, they can reach second if Oneida wins, or third if Meigs County wins. Region 3 Tyner is the winner. Marion County is in the playoffs, and clinches third with a Polk County win. Polk County clinches third with a win. Bledsoe County must win to remain in contention for second or third. Tellico Plains cannot finish second, and needs a Polk County loss to stay in for third. Region 4 Trousdale County is in. A win or a Jackson County win guarantees a home game for the Yellow Jackets, while a win plus a Watertown win is a gold plaque headed for Hartsville. Jackson County remains alive for the title with a win, or if Trousdale County and Westmoreland both lose. A Blue Devil loss with wins by both Trousdale and Westmoreland would eliminate Jackson even from second place; on the other hand, a win and an East Robertson win guarantees the top two for Jackson County. A win clinches the playoffs, as would wins by both Trousdale and Westmoreland. Watertown needs a win and a Trousdale loss to remain in title contention. A loss can eliminate Watertown if East Robertson wins, but a win can clinch second if Westmoreland wins. A win or a Jackson County win gets the Purple Tigers onto the bracket. East Robertson is the last team in title contention. If they lose or Jackson County wins, the Indians can at best finish third; a Trousdale County win would eliminate East Robertson only from first. If East Robertson loses, they can be eliminated if Watertown and Trousdale both win; if they win, a Jackson County win would guarantee the Indians a playoff slot. Westmoreland's best possible finish is second; to preserve that hope requires a win and at least one loss between Trousdale and Watertown. A Westmoreland loss and a Jackson County win combined end the Eagles' playoff chances; a win gets the Eagles in if Trousdale and Watertown win too. Cascade has a glimmer of hope for fourth, which dies if they lose or East Robertson wins. Region 5 Columbia Academy is in the playoffs, and clinches second with a win or third with a Community win. Lewis County is also in the playoffs, and clinches second with a win or a Columbia Academy win. Eagleville can at best finish third with a loss, and at best second if Lewis County wins. Wins by Eagleville and Community get Eagleville into the playoffs. Loretto needs a win and a Columbia Academy loss to remain in the chase for second; a loss eliminates the Mustangs from the playoffs altogether. Community can do no better than third, and needs a win plus an Eagleville loss to keep that alive. Forrest is also third at best, and needs Columbia Academy to lose to hang onto that. Summertown is at best third and at worst out. That cannot be changed in week nine. Region 6 Riverside clinches a playoff bit with a win. If they do so, then Waverly Central can also clinch with a win over East Hickman, who would then be eliminated. East Hickman retains a shot at second place with a win, or at fourth if they lose but so does Riverside. Houston County can still win the region with a win, but is at best third with a loss. Nothing interesting can be said about Hickman County or Scotts Hill. Region 7 Union City wraps up third place with a win, or second if either Gibson County or Peabody wins too. Trinity Christian clinches a playoff spot with a win, or third if either Union City or McKenzie also wins. A Peabody win also gets Trinity into the field. A loss and a Union City win would end Trinity's shot at first. Peabody clinches the playoffs with a win, and needs either a win, a Gibson County loss, or a Union City loss to remain in the race for first. Adamsville remains in contention for first with a win, or for second with a Trinity Christian loss. McKenzie can finish no better than fourth if they lose. Even if the Rebels win, a Trinity Christian win would cap them at second place. Halls cannot get a first-rounder at home. To finish third, they must start with Peabody and Union City having opposite results. Region 8: Douglass and Fairley will be 1-2. Their game (not tonight) will decide in which order. With the Thursday win over MAHS, Mitchell clinches third, and Hamilton's playoff dreams are burninated. The MAHS-Manassas game (again not tonight) will decide the final qualifier from the Bluff City.
  10. (Note: I'm assuming we don't get previous results overturned by ineligibles. If that happens, all bets are off.) Region 1: Straight up, the Cloudland-Jellico game decides first and second. Hancock County is third. Region 2: Coalfield is in, and is guaranteed top three with a win from Sunbright or Oakdale. Greenback can clinch with a win (in fact, would clinch third), and gets a home game if Sunbright wins too. Harriman must win to stay alive. To keep a chance at third place, they also need either Oliver Springs or Sunbright to lose. Midway's playoff fate will not be decided tonight. They do need to win to remain in the title race, and if they lose and Greenback wins, they cannot even finish second. Oakdale, like Harriman, can at best hope for third. If Greenback or Sunbright wins, they can only hope for fourth, and a loss ends all hope for the Eagles. Oliver Springs can clinch a playoff bid with a win plus a Midway win. To remain in the hunt for the title and the unusual first-round bye, they must either win or get a Greenback loss. Sunbright's best possible finish is second. This drops to third if Greenback wins, and to fourth if the Tigers themselves lose. Region 3: South Pittsburg and Copper Basin will almost certainly finish 1-2, in order of their result tonight. Lookout Valley can maintain a small hope of the top two with a win, and even stays in the title hunt if South Pittsburg also wins. The Marion County pair and the Lookout Valley-Copper Basin winner will be the top 3, with the LV-CB loser fourth. Sale Creek was out even if they'd won last night. Region 4: Clay County will still be in the title hunt after tonight, and will still not be sure of qualifying. Gordonsville is already in, as third or better, and wraps up second with a win. Jo Byrns cannot clinch a bid tonight, but a loss will cap their finish at second. No one else can win the region. Monterey and RBS have to win to stay in the hunt for a home opener, while Pickett County can hold onto that hope even with a loss if Jo Byrns and RBS both lose. Monterey also risks elimination from the top three if they lose and Jo Byrns wins. Republic can only sneak into fourth; a loss or a Monterey win will mean the end of their trail for the year. Region 5: Congratulations to the region champion Cornersville Bulldogs! The rest is a scramble, with Fayetteville, Grace Christian, Moore County, and Mount Pleasant all being able to finish anywhere from second to out. Nothing tonight can falsify that statement. In addition, Richland can reach third, but only if Moore County loses tonight. Elsewise, Richland can only get to fourth. Finally, Huntland is also alive for third, but is eliminated outright with a loss tonight. Region 6: Collinwood is out of the first-place race if they lose or Huntingdon wins. Hollow Rock-Bruceton can at best finish second, and that drops to third if Wayne County wins. Huntingdon is guaranteed a home game, and can win the region outright with a win or with losses by Collinwood and Wayne County. McEwen is out of the title race already; to stay alive for second, they need a win or a Collinwood loss. Middleton and Perry County each need a win to stay alive, for fourth only. Wayne County loses its chance at the title if they lose or Huntingdon wins. If they win along with Collinwood and Huntingdon, they clinch a postseason appearance. Region 7 Dresden is in. A Greenfield win assures the Lions of second place, while a Lake County win means at least third for Dresden. Gleason needs a win and a Lake County loss to stay alive for the title. A loss means the Bulldogs can do no better than fourth. Greenfield cannot finish first, and a loss eliminates them from second place too. Lake County clinches a playoff spot with a win; in fact, this would guarantee them third, or second if Gleason also wins. They can be eliminated from the title race with a loss if Greenfield wins. South Fulton's best possibility is second; to keep that requires a win and a Lake County loss. West Carroll will still be alive for the title if they win; a loss means they can at best finish third. Region 8 Booker T. Washington is already out of contention for first. If they lose, they cannot hope for second either; third would then be out of reach if Freedom Prep, KIPP, or Oakhaven wins. If it's Freedom Prep, or both KIPP and Oakhaven, then they are out altogether. Even if the Warriors win, they can be eliminated from second by wins from Hillcrest and Westwood. Freedom Prep needs a win to keep its shot at first. Hillcrest cannot clinch anything nor be eliminated from anything. KIPP is out of the title race if they lose or if Hillcrest wins. They are out for second if both. Middle College is also out for first if they lose or if Hillcrest wins. Oakhaven can at best finish second; to retain that hope, they need a win and at least one loss between Hillcrest and Westwood. A win keeps them in the race for third no matter what, as do losses by both Freedom Prep and KIPP. Science and Engineering is already playing for no better than third, and must win for any playoff hope to remain. Wins from Freedom Prep and Middle College would eliminate even a victorious MASE; either Freedom Prep or KIPP winning knocks MASE out of third-place contention. Westwood cannot clinch anything nor be eliminated from anything
  11. The point about bowling is that it only has one class, so nothing would affect it anyway. But I have to admit it will be hard on their other sports, having Baylor and GPS/McCallie as their only region opponents.
  12. From Chattanooga, mainly do wrestling stuff. Went to Baylor, but now consider Red Bank and Silverdale Baptist "my" teams.
  13. Semi-related opinion: Tennessee should offer eight-a-side football for the small schools.
  14. Actually, Southtowner, it could have been, because according to the previous posts, he didn't play in any previous game; therefore even if he was too old, it would only have mattered for the one game he appeared in.
  15. And for the small class, you have five teams in the West, eight in the Midstate (my autocorrect wanted to call it the Misstate ), and three in the east (Concord, King's, and Grace Baptist). Do you go with a region of just three, or does someone get sent east? That someone would be Zion, probably, or maybe MTCS, or both. (upon further review, it could also be Friendship, since they face Knoxville).
