What a playoff with 5A and 6A teams would look like this year.
« on: November 10, 2019, 07:47:27 pm »
So based on previous threads about 5A and 6A, out of interest i decided to form a theoretical playoff that consists of 6A and 5A teams and resembles that of the bottom 3 class playoffs. After looking up the 4A playoff format, pairing the conferences to be geographically similar to the 4A confs, and plugging in the teams, this is what i got.

QUADRANT 1
W8 Benton - Bye
3rd-3 Wynne vs 4th-4 White Hall
W2 Searcy vs 5th-8 El Dorado
3rd-7 Magnolia vs 3rd-4 Maumelle

QUADRANT 2
W1 Harrison vs 5th-2 Sylvan Hills
2nd-3 Forrest City vs 5th-1 Greenbrier
2nd-7 Texarkana vs 4th-3 Batesville
2nd-4 Pulaski Academy vs 4th-7 Camden Fairview

QUADRANT 3
W3 Valley View - Bye
3rd-8 Lake Hamilton vs 4th-1 Morrilton
W7 HS Lakeside vs 5th-3 Blytheville
3rd-2 Marion vs 3rd-1 Alma

QUADRANT 4
W4 LR Christian vs 5th-7 Hot Springs
2nd-8 Greenwood vs 5th-4 Watson Chapel
2nd-2 West Memphis vs 4th-8 Sheridan
2nd-1 Vilonia vs 4th-2 Jonesboro

What cool potential matchups do you see? Would this be an appealing playoff?

As far as reference for the conference pairings

1-5A is the 5A West
2-5A is the 6A East
3-5A is the 5A East
4-5A is the 5A Central
7-5A is the 5A South
8-5A is the 6A South

The playoff teams were plugged in based on the 4A playoff format

Looking at how both playoffs turned out, this would have been epic

5A and 6A combined would be epic some years... I think this year being one.

I agree. Benton, Greenwood, Searcy, PA, LR Christian, and Harrison all being in one bracket. That would be insane. Not really a major gap between 6A and 5A

It is funny that people acted like Searcy was no good.  It was a great game between Morrilton and them. Down to the wire. Others said they gave up points against other teams but those games were decided. Searcy will win title I think. Coach Kelly is a former devil dog.
