Final Divisional Rankings
« on: October 27, 2020, 09:17:55 pm »
Has been a great season but it's just about done at this point. Only a few more games that matter this weekend other than fine tuning before Playoffs or PST. By all means let me know if anyone sees a mistake here or knows something I don’t.

Divisional Rankings
With Piedmont disqualified, D1 playoff spots are locked, just a little question of who lands where possibly?
D1
Stillwater   7-0. Stillwater’s record will show them undefeated on paper.
Newcastle   5-2. Newcastle already beat Gold but if Gold beats Stillwater and Newcastle Loses, they could flip I think.
Choctaw Gold   5-2.

D2 Looks pretty much locked up from what I can tell.
D2

Glenpool   8-0. - This team is so good I barely ever even mention them. Most likely the 2020 INFC champs but they have had an easier path than most this year. Still probably won't matter.
Jenks Maroon   5-3. Locked up with an easy win over BA Silver this weekend.
TYAA   5-3. Yellowjackets have the same record, but TYAA owns the tiebreaker as long as they beat Union Silver. (U has the chance to be spoilers)

I believe D3 is also locked. Even if BA Gold, Collinsville, and U Black all finish 6-3, which is unlikely, U Black will be kept out based on tiebreakers with the other 2.
D3
Jenks Silver   8-0. - An unexpected dominant force. Hope they, and or Skiatook get to play Glenpool.
BA Gold   6-2. - Solid team that could go as far as final four, or drop round 1. Who knows.
Collinsville   6-2. - Sort of a suprising season for the dirty birds. Not as dominant in the past obviously, but could still get to the finals for 3rd year in a row? or 4th, not sure.

I previously said not a lot likely to change in D4, and sure enough, a lot has changed. I said before Muskogee had a chance to ruin someone’s day and they did. With Claremore and Grove losing to them, Bixby Blue has a strong chance to take the 3rd seed from Grove this weekend.
D4   
Skiatook   8-0. As I said above, these guys may be one of only 2 or 3 teams that could beat Glenpool.
BA White   7-1.- probably the best 2 seed there is.
Bixby Blue   5-3.  – I previously stated these guys didn’t have an impressive win, but I am being serious when I say barely losing to Skiatook and BA White is impressive. Was surprised when I saw both of those scores, and they can now hang their hat on the Claremore win. Taking down Grove would only add to their legitimacy as a 3rd seed team that could go far.  I’ll be picking Blue over Grove at this point though.
Grove   5-3. – Muskogee is a great team, but was still a little surprised to see they’d taken down Grove. They’ll have to be on their A Game if they want to get past Bixby Blue.

AA
Verdigris   8-0. – Verdigris is better than possibly half of the Single A teams.
Lincoln Christian 7-1. Lincoln would have a shot at beating at least a few of the 3 seed A teams.
Sequoyah   6-2. Great, well coached, and solid kids that really play as a team.


Overall Rankings
Here’s my best shot at it. I’ll admit I’ve been down on the west teams all year, probably partly out of bias. Hard to ignore that Choctaw beat BA Gold in the playoffs last year, and all 3 west teams will get their chance to prove themselves again soon. Given the right circumstances I’m sure any of these teams could pull out a win against each other on any given day.
1.   Glenpool
2.   Skiatook
3.   Jenks Silver
4.   BA White
5.   BA Gold
6.   Collinsville
7.   Bixby Blue
7b.   Grove
8.   Jenks Maroon
9.   TYAA
10.   Stillwater
11.   Newcastle
12.   Choctaw Gold

To clarify 1 point above, I meant that Verdigris could probably beat half the single A  teams that will be in the single A playoffs.

Awesome breakdowns... It has been a different world down here in AA ball.. The playoffs for AA are just about sewed up, with a battle for the 3 seed happening Saturday... then it should be Metro for the 5th spot,  with Sapulpa having a shot to sneak in at 5...

Do non-division losses count towards playoffs? If not that changes the conversation a little. Bixby White only has 2 division losses and would be playing Collinsville for that 3rd spot.

You are right on the money, and that makes two back to back games at Bixby high school on Saturday -well worth the price of admission.

Good question drop back. That might possibly change things for several teams. I didn't even think about non divisional losses. I just assumed they would still count against teams.

I just looked in the rule book and can't see a difinitive answer really. But doesn't say anywhere that non divisional games don't count. If someone else knows for sure let us know.

I think Muskogee still has an outside shot in D4. If Muskogee and Grove win it will be a 3 way tie

@jk07,

naw, unfortunately, we’re out no matter what. Our loss to BxB Blue hurt our chance for 3rd seed.

You’re right, no clear cut rule in the book but it does say tie breakers come down to marginal points in division games only. So I would guess only division records count for playoff contention.

The crazy thing about Div 4 is BxB Blue could lose to Grove and still possibly get the 3rd seed. If BxB happens to lose, both Grove and BxB Blue would have three division losses, but BxB would still have more division standing points. 🤯

@ puck

are you sure cause
cause if Grove beats Blue then

Blue beat Muskogee
Grove beat Blue
Muskogee beat Grove

all with 3 D4 losses.

I think it would come down to marginal points, but not 100% sure.

@jk07,

Dude! I’m tripping. I kept thinking our CVille game was a divisional game. 🤦🏽‍♂️ But, overall all, BxB Blue still has the edge, standing points wise.
