Post by: PRESSPass on October 08, 2019, 03:21:21 pm
Ok, boys and girls...this is probably the week that has the most important games for the most teams in 6th grade this year!  (Is there a rule limiting the number of "Game-of-the-Week" games you can have in one week?)

Post by: PRESSPass on October 09, 2019, 12:34:05 pm
There are some TOUGH picks this week. I'm still not sure about several of my choices but I guess I will post what I have.

Division 1
EDMOND HUSKIES(3-3)   host CHOCTAW BLUE(4-2) This one is tough for me because I’ve seen both teams play and was much more impressed with the Huskies. Choctaw Blue, however, has been winning a lot of games since the season started. Guess I’ll go with the home team.
WESTMOORE(5-1)   hosts NORMAN TIGERS(0-6) Westmoore is a strong team and will have no problems shutting the clock off on the Tigers.
YUKON(1-5)   hosts PIEDMONT(2-4) I would like to think that Yukon is due for another win but I think Piedmont is far too scrappy, especially after they scored on Choctaw Gold.
CHOCTAW GOLD(5-1)   hosts EDMOND WOLVES(1-5) The Wolves will not be able to get their second win here.
NORMAN T-WOLVES(3-3)   host EDMOND BULLDOGS(6-0) The T-Wolves seem to be inconsistent this year but the Bulldogs will be ready, no matter what.

Division 2
MUSKOGEE(1-5)   hosts CATOOSA(1-5) Catoosa gets the edge from me because they have a little more momentum going into this game.
BIXBY RED(6-0)   hosts JENKS SILVER(6-0) GOTW I have been trying to decide my pick for this game for a couple of weeks now. One of the few times in the past few years that I picked Red to lose, they shut the clock off on McAlester. Red has struggled at times this year but continues to find ways to win and they have still not allowed a single point. That is tough to do in this league, even against poor teams. It only takes one dropped coverage or misalignment or one missed tackle for a team to score, even against the best. The amount of discipline that Bixby Red and the Edmond Bulldogs have had on defense to allow 0 points is amazing. I think Red will win a close one to take their place at the top of Division 2.
WAGONER(2-4)   hosts OWASSO WHITE(5-1) O-White will continue to solidify their place in the Division 2 third playoff spot.
TYAA RED(2-4)   hosts MCALESTER(3-3) Despite holding the defending champs to 13 last week, I think TYAA Red has given up too many points this year.

Division 3
BA ORANGE(3-3)   hosts COWETA BLACK(0-5) Orange will bounce back from their close loss to Jenks Maroon and win this one easily.
UNION SILVER(6-0)   hosts TYAA BLUE(6-0) GOTW Another game I have struggled with for a while now. These teams are extremely close in stats and strength of schedule. Silver has scored 11 more points but allowed 2 more. Silver has the home field advantage but has a tricky history with Blue. Silver is also coming off of a “come-from-behind” overtime win against a tough O-Red team. Both teams are extremely well coached so this game could go either way depending on which boys show up ready to play. Winner will take the top spot in Division 3. If this were played at McClain, Blue would have my pick so I guess I’ll go with Silver since it will be at Union.
JENKS MAROON(4-2)   hosts SKIATOOK(2-4) It took some creative play calling at the end of the last game for Jenks to win but I think they have an easier time with their victory this week.
CLAREMORE(0-5)   hosts OWASSO RED(3-3) O-Red is too tough to stumble here. With only 4 standings points separating them from J-Maroon, the last game of the season might be interesting.

Division 4
BA BLACK(2-4)   hosts SAPULPA(1-5) BA had a tougher non-division schedule so they get my nod here.
SAND SPRINGS(4-2)   hosts BIXBY BLUE(6-0) GOTW Sand Springs stumbled and went scoreless against a tough Metro team and also has a large roster which means they have to work to get all of their play counts. Blue scraped by that same Metro team with a 2-point win so they should have the edge here but I know from experience, never count SS out of the game until the game is played. One interesting note about this game is that if Blue wins, but by less than 4 points, Metro could slip ahead of them in the Division 4 standings which means Blue could go undefeated on the season and still not win their Division. (As pointed out in the thread below, this scenario is likely based on incorrect information)
UNION BLACK(3-3)   hosts METRO CHRISTIAN(4-2) Metro is well coached, disciplined and has had a much tougher schedule. Not only will they win this one, but I’m going to predict they win out to take the second (possibly the first -  see above) spot in Division 4.
GLENPOOL(1-5)   hosts STILLWATER(0-6) As predicted, Stillwater finally scored in their last game but it wasn’t enough. I think Glenpool handles them for the easy win.

AA1
BA PLATINUM(5-1)   hosts LINCOLN CHRISTIAN(6-0) GOTW This was almost a clash of unbeaten teams but Platinum stumbled last week. That, and the fact they have had a much weaker schedule means I give LC the win again in my picks this week (as long as they aren’t already looking to next week’s showdown with Cascia for the top spot in AA1).
JENKS WHITE(1-5)   hosts BARTLESVILLE(3-3) Bartlesville has both a better record and a tougher schedule so far so they should win this easily.
COWETA WHITE(1-5)   hosts PRYOR(3-3) I think Pryor is the safe pick here.

AA2
VERDIGRIS(4-2)   hosts UNION RED(2-4) Verdigris rolls over Red as they prepare for their end of season showdown against Hilldale.
HILLDALE(5-1)   hosts BERRYHILL(4-2)   GOTW This game could very well be for the second spot in Division AA2. If Hilldale wants a shot at the first spot, they will need this one before facing Verdigris in 3 weeks. Hilldale stumbled with a non-division loss to Pryor but has rolled over everyone since. Berryhill has lost a couple of close games to tough opponents (by 5 to LC and by 1 to Verdigris). Hilldale has a slight edge on defensive numbers and a large edge on offense so I’m going with them for this game.
COLLINSVILLE(3-3)   hosts BISHOP KELLEY(0-6) BK has had a tough ride this year and it won’t get any better here.

Non-Division
SEQUOYAH(0-6)   hosts CASCIA HALL(5-1) Cascia with the cake walk.

There is no way BXB Blue goes undefeated and doesn’t win division. Win / Loss record is above points.  Marginal Points are only in the event of a 3 way tie.

That is good to know...except I'm reading the INFC Rulebook (again) and it's not exactly clear on that. It talks about two teams being tied in marginal points and then the winner of head-to-head advances which implies that marginal points are used first. It does NOT mention win/loss record in that section.

It does mention record in a separate section about the playoffs, but doesn't even spell out if it is divisional record or overall record (I'm 99% sure it's divisional record). 

I doubt seriously that Bixby Blue will win by less than 4 points so this is likely a moot point (but interesting). I have copy/pasted the pertinent rulebook entry below:



Article 2: Marginal   Points   shall   be   calculated   for   each   divisional   game   played throughout the regular season. Post-Season eligibility and seeding shall be determined utilizing marginal points. The maximum number of marginal points per game shall be eight points. No team shall add or subtract more than eight points per game.
A. The maximum number of marginal points for any games that went into overtime shall be plus or minus one point.
B.  If  two  teams  are  tied  (on  marginal  points),  the  advancer  shall  be  the  team that defeated the other during the regular season.


We need some of our INFC playoff veterans to chime in on this possible scenario.

And just for fun, here is another section of the rulebook that contradicts the section that I copy/pasted above (this one agrees with 52Spartans):

Article  4: Division  Tie  Breakers  If  two  teams  have  equal  records  at  the  end of the regular Conference play, the team that won over the other will be considered to have the higher league standing
.A. In the event three or more teams are tied with identical records and no winner can be determined, the advancing team shall be determined by  totaling  the  margin  of  points  for  each  tied  team  in  all  Divisional  games  (or  division  games  if  two  or  more  divisions).  The  advancing  team shall be the team with the greatest number of marginal points.B.       Any  remaining  playoff  spots  for  the  remaining  tied  teams  shall  be  determined by the winner over the other during the regular season as above.

Smh. If BXB Blue goes undefeated then they are the division champs. It's that simple. Here some simple mathmatics for all the analytic guys... 9-0=1

WESTMOORE(5-1)   hosts NORMAN TIGERS(0-6)
YUKON(1-5)   hosts PIEDMONT(2-4)
CHOCTAW GOLD(5-1)   hosts EDMOND WOLVES(1-5)
NORMAN T-WOLVES(3-3)   host EDMOND BULLDOGS(6-0)

Division 2
MUSKOGEE(1-5)   hosts CATOOSA(1-5) - I haven't seen Catoosa play yet but going by record, it has been tough sledding over there.  Going with the home team Muskogee in a close one.
BIXBY RED(6-0)   hosts JENKS SILVER(6-0) GOTW -  Hopefully this game will be a microcosm of this years High School game, but the O of BXB Red currently and Trojan pride won't let that happen.  Predicting a defensive battle with BXB Red getting the win at home.
WAGONER(2-4)   hosts OWASSO WHITE(5-1) - Rumor number 7 for OW may be out.  If true, I think OW still has too much for Wagoner to handle.  Owasso White in a easy one on the road. 
TYAA RED(2-4)   hosts MCALESTER(3-3) - McAlester passes the eye test and is getting better each week and year in this grade.  Run a nice no huddle.  The question is can they run that no huddle offense quickly to put pressure on TYAA Red and test their conditioning and endurance.  Can McAlester handle the environment?  How will they do mentally when it is loud and crazy from the sidelines and stands?  Can TYAA move the ball?  They had negative yards of offense against the trash defense of BXB Red.  Going with TYAA Red in a close one. 

Division 3
BA ORANGE(3-3)   hosts COWETA BLACK(0-5)
UNION SILVER(6-0)   hosts TYAA BLUE(6-0) GOTW - I wish I could go see this game!!  I think this game comes down to who is more discipline and can take care of the football.  I could change my pick every hour until game time but I'm going with Coach Koch and the Hot Boyz, based only on the fact they are at home.  If this was at McLain, I would be going with Sheldon and the Dawgs.  Should be a great game!!
JENKS MAROON(4-2)   hosts SKIATOOK(2-4)
CLAREMORE(0-5)   hosts OWASSO RED(3-3)

Division 4
BA BLACK(2-4)   hosts SAPULPA(1-5)
SAND SPRINGS(4-2)   hosts BIXBY BLUE(6-0) GOTW -  Can SS contain the edge long enough and not over pursue the backside to contain #10?  That is going to be the deciding factor in this game.  BXB Blue with a road win.
UNION BLACK(3-3)   hosts METRO CHRISTIAN(4-2) - Metro with an easy win this week.  Don't think BA can stop #6.
GLENPOOL(1-5)   hosts STILLWATER(0-6)

AA1
BA PLATINUM(5-1)   hosts LINCOLN CHRISTIAN(6-0) GOTW
JENKS WHITE(1-5)   hosts BARTLESVILLE(3-3)

BA ORANGE(3-3)   hosts COWETA BLACK(0-5)
UNION SILVER(6-0)   hosts TYAA BLUE(6-0) GOTW - I wish I could go see this game!!  I think this game comes down to who is more discipline and can take care of the football.  I could change my pick every hour until game time but I'm going with Coach Koch and the Hot Boyz, based only on the fact they are at home.  If this was at McLain, I would be going with Sheldon and the Dawgs.  Should be a great game!!
JENKS MAROON(4-2)   hosts SKIATOOK(2-4)
CLAREMORE(0-5)   hosts OWASSO RED(3-3)

Division 4
BA BLACK(2-4)   hosts SAPULPA(1-5)
SAND SPRINGS(4-2)   hosts BIXBY BLUE(6-0) GOTW -  Can SS contain the edge long enough and not over pursue the backside to contain #10?  That is going to be the deciding factor in this game.  BXB Blue with a road win.
UNION BLACK(3-3)   hosts METRO CHRISTIAN(4-2) - Metro with an easy win this week.  Don't think BA can stop #6.
GLENPOOL(1-5)   hosts STILLWATER(0-6)

AA1
BA PLATINUM(5-1)   hosts LINCOLN CHRISTIAN(6-0) GOTW
JENKS WHITE(1-5)   hosts BARTLESVILLE(3-3)
COWETA WHITE(1-5)   hosts PRYOR(3-3)

VERDIGRIS(4-2)   hosts UNION RED(2-4)

"They had negative yards of offense against the trash defense of BXB Red."    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  (I'm trying to figure if this is as funny as I think it is or if there is some unknown, positive meaning to the term "trash defense")

Week 7 – 6th grade

Division 1
EDMOND HUSKIES(3-3)   host CHOCTAW BLUE(4-2) edge CB by two scores
WESTMOORE(5-1)   hosts NORMAN TIGERS(0-6)
YUKON(1-5)   hosts PIEDMONT(2-4) both struggle to score, but Piendmont scores more
CHOCTAW GOLD(5-1)   hosts EDMOND WOLVES(1-5)
NORMAN T-WOLVES(3-3)   host EDMOND BULLDOGS(6-0)

Division 2
MUSKOGEE(1-5)   hosts CATOOSA(1-5) Muskogge at home
BIXBY RED(6-0)   hosts JENKS SILVER(6-0) GOTW BEST Defense in the League creates good field position for the Red O to put short drives together for a couple of scores. Silver is the best team to play Red to date, but still may not break the goose egg in Red's Points Allowed column...
WAGONER(2-4)   hosts OWASSO WHITE(5-1) O-White keeps tuning up
TYAA RED(2-4)   hosts MCALESTER(3-3) on paper McAlester wins this by a couple of scores, but i think T-Red keeps it close due to sheer athleticism.

Division 3
BA ORANGE(3-3)   hosts COWETA BLACK(0-5) BA at home wins by a TD (or less)
UNION SILVER(6-0)   hosts TYAA BLUE(6-0) GOTW U-Silver has Athletes...T-Blue has more. the stat lines on this game are crazy similar avg pts per game: TB 31.7 / US 33.5; avg. pts against per game: TB 3/ US 3.3. TBlue's Defense wins this one.
JENKS MAROON(4-2)   hosts SKIATOOK(2-4)
CLAREMORE(0-5)   hosts OWASSO RED(3-3) O-Red makes a statement coming off a tough L

Division 4
BA BLACK(2-4)   hosts SAPULPA(1-5) Sapulpa has a shot to pull the upset in this one, but BA at home wins it late
SAND SPRINGS(4-2)   hosts BIXBY BLUE(6-0) GOTW - SS has a strong Defense and keys well on opponent's strong players; however, Blue has too many options to go to for SS to key all of them. Blue wins a dog fight.
UNION BLACK(3-3)   hosts METRO CHRISTIAN(4-2) this is a must-win game for U-Black to make the playoffs. they have a few weapons on both sides of the ball and speed to match Metro's; however, Metro's passing game proves to be too much in this one. Metro by 2-scores
GLENPOOL(1-5)   hosts STILLWATER(0-6)


AA1
BA PLATINUM(5-1)   hosts LINCOLN CHRISTIAN(6-0) GOTW
JENKS WHITE(1-5)   hosts BARTLESVILLE(3-3)

AA2
VERDIGRIS(4-2)   hosts UNION RED(2-4)

Division 2

BIXBY RED(6-0)   hosts JENKS SILVER(6-0) GOTW  Jenks silver is tough but Bixby Red has not lost in my time in INFC.
WAGONER(2-4)   hosts OWASSO WHITE(5-1)
TYAA RED(2-4)   hosts MCALESTER(3-3)

Division 3

There is no way BXB Blue goes undefeated and doesn’t win division. Win / Loss record is above points.  Marginal Points are only in the event of a 3 way tie.

Win / Loss
Head to Head
Marginal Points in the event of a tie

According to Article 4 of Section 18 in the rule book, you are correct about this. (I still can't figure out what Article 2 is all about other than to make me look silly in the forums.)

There is an interesting wrinkle if Sand Springs wins this weekend in that it could put Division 4 into a three way tie. As close as the divisional points are right now, that slight possibility could allow Metro to slip into first place. That makes tomorrows game even more important for Bixby Blue and Metro both.

If that is the case, then your marginal points will matter.  But hey you finally get to use them. Haha.

There are some TOUGH picks this week. I'm still not sure about several of my choices but I guess I will post what I have.

Division 1
EDMOND HUSKIES(3-3)   host CHOCTAW BLUE(4-2) This one is tough for me because I’ve seen both teams play and was much more impressed with the Huskies. Choctaw Blue, however, has been winning a lot of games since the season started. Guess I’ll go with the home team.
WESTMOORE(5-1)   hosts NORMAN TIGERS(0-6) Westmoore is a strong team and will have no problems shutting the clock off on the Tigers.
YUKON(1-5)   hosts PIEDMONT(2-4) I would like to think that Yukon is due for another win but I think Piedmont is far too scrappy, especially after they scored on Choctaw Gold.
CHOCTAW GOLD(5-1)   hosts EDMOND WOLVES(1-5) The Wolves will not be able to get their second win here.
NORMAN T-WOLVES(3-3)   host EDMOND BULLDOGS(6-0) The T-Wolves seem to be inconsistent this year but the Bulldogs will be ready, no matter what.

Division 2
MUSKOGEE(1-5)   hosts CATOOSA(1-5) Catoosa gets the edge from me because they have a little more momentum going into this game.
BIXBY RED(6-0)   hosts JENKS SILVER(6-0) GOTW I have been trying to decide my pick for this game for a couple of weeks now. One of the few times in the past few years that I picked Red to lose, they shut the clock off on McAlester. Red has struggled at times this year but continues to find ways to win and they have still not allowed a single point. That is tough to do in this league, even against poor teams. It only takes one dropped coverage or misalignment or one missed tackle for a team to score, even against the best. The amount of discipline that Bixby Red and the Edmond Bulldogs have had on defense to allow 0 points is amazing. I think Red will win a close one to take their place at the top of Division 2.
WAGONER(2-4)   hosts OWASSO WHITE(5-1) O-White will continue to solidify their place in the Division 2 third playoff spot.
TYAA RED(2-4)   hosts MCALESTER(3-3) Despite holding the defending champs to 13 last week, I think TYAA Red has given up too many points this year.

Division 3
BA ORANGE(3-3)   hosts COWETA BLACK(0-5) Orange will bounce back from their close loss to Jenks Maroon and win this one easily.
UNION SILVER(6-0)   hosts TYAA BLUE(6-0) GOTW Another game I have struggled with for a while now. These teams are extremely close in stats and strength of schedule. Silver has scored 11 more points but allowed 2 more. Silver has the home field advantage but has a tricky history with Blue. Silver is also coming off of a “come-from-behind” overtime win against a tough O-Red team. Both teams are extremely well coached so this game could go either way depending on which boys show up ready to play. Winner will take the top spot in Division 3. If this were played at McClain, Blue would have my pick so I guess I’ll go with Silver since it will be at Union.
JENKS MAROON(4-2)   hosts SKIATOOK(2-4) It took some creative play calling at the end of the last game for Jenks to win but I think they have an easier time with their victory this week.
CLAREMORE(0-5)   hosts OWASSO RED(3-3) O-Red is too tough to stumble here. With only 4 standings points separating them from J-Maroon, the last game of the season might be interesting.

Division 4
BA BLACK(2-4)   hosts SAPULPA(1-5) BA had a tougher non-division schedule so they get my nod here.
SAND SPRINGS(4-2)   hosts BIXBY BLUE(6-0) GOTW Sand Springs stumbled and went scoreless against a tough Metro team and also has a large roster which means they have to work to get all of their play counts. Blue scraped by that same Metro team with a 2-point win so they should have the edge here but I know from experience, never count SS out of the game until the game is played. One interesting note about this game is that if Blue wins, but by less than 4 points, Metro could slip ahead of them in the Division 4 standings which means Blue could go undefeated on the season and still not win their Division. (As pointed out in the thread below, this scenario is likely based on incorrect information)
UNION BLACK(3-3)   hosts METRO CHRISTIAN(4-2) Metro is well coached, disciplined and has had a much tougher schedule. Not only will they win this one, but I’m going to predict they win out to take the second (possibly the first -  see above) spot in Division 4.
GLENPOOL(1-5)   hosts STILLWATER(0-6) As predicted, Stillwater finally scored in their last game but it wasn’t enough. I think Glenpool handles them for the easy win.

AA1
BA PLATINUM(5-1)   hosts LINCOLN CHRISTIAN(6-0) GOTW This was almost a clash of unbeaten teams but Platinum stumbled last week. That, and the fact they have had a much weaker schedule means I give LC the win again in my picks this week (as long as they aren’t already looking to next week’s showdown with Cascia for the top spot in AA1).
JENKS WHITE(1-5)   hosts BARTLESVILLE(3-3) Bartlesville has both a better record and a tougher schedule so far so they should win this easily.
COWETA WHITE(1-5)   hosts PRYOR(3-3) I think Pryor is the safe pick here.

AA2
VERDIGRIS(4-2)   hosts UNION RED(2-4) Verdigris rolls over Red as they prepare for their end of season showdown against Hilldale.
HILLDALE(5-1)   hosts BERRYHILL(4-2)   GOTW This game could very well be for the second spot in Division AA2. If Hilldale wants a shot at the first spot, they will need this one before facing Verdigris in 3 weeks. Hilldale stumbled with a non-division loss to Pryor but has rolled over everyone since. Berryhill has lost a couple of close games to tough opponents (by 5 to LC and by 1 to Verdigris). Hilldale has a slight edge on defensive numbers and a large edge on offense so I’m going with them for this game.
COLLINSVILLE(3-3)   hosts BISHOP KELLEY(0-6) BK has had a tough ride this year and it won’t get any better here.

Non-Division
SEQUOYAH(0-6)   hosts CASCIA HALL(5-1) Cascia with the cake walk.


I went 17 - 7 this week.  Either there were some upsets, or I can't pick worth a damn! 🤨
