    1A & 2A Baseball Playoff Bracketology

    I just don't have time to do 3A or 4A this year, was a lot to get these two done....but if you want a general idea for one team in 3A....go look up their most recent adjusted maxpreps ranking, if it's in the top 60 or so, you should be in the playoffs, unless you're buried in the conference standings under a team that will not make the playoffs
  3. Here is my latest update of 1A & 2A Baseball Playoff Bracketology

    baseball preview

    Now that we are to the point where almost everybody has played a few conference games, I will soon start to check scores every day and work on potential bracketology for 1A & 2A as the playoffs get closer....over here at South Granville, we have been off to a slow start, sitting at 3-6 and 2-4 in conference play....definitely lost to graduation from last year's team that made it 4th round and lost to eventual state champion Whiteville in extra innings....the guys that did return and a couple of newcomers have been in every game; they say it's just part of baseball when you lose a close one where the ball just didn't bounce your way or an error or mental mistake or questionable call comes back to haunt you but we've seen that time after time after time in these six losses...in both road losses to county rivals JF Webb & Granville Central, we lost by one run, in which multiple errors in the 1st inning led to a flurry of unearned runs that proved to be too much to overcome...in the two conference losses to Bunn, in the road game, our starter had a no-hitter through 4 innings but our bats never woke up to drive in any runs, despite out-hitting the home team; and their one big inning late proved decisive...in our home against Bunn, SG led 2-1 in 6th and allowed a big inning...also 2 tough losses to Nash Central, at home led 6-0 in 5th and went on to lose 10-6 on a flurry of walks, hit batters, and a couple of hits, on the road, it was much like the Bunn game when it felt like a pitchers duel for a while, but the home team eventually prevailed with a big inning late...all three of our wins were 5 inning games at home, two of them against those county rivals that we lost to on the road by one run thanks to unearned runs, and one against Carrboro, who is very, very young this year...long way to go this season, hoping the Vikings can get to the playoffs, and then you see what happens...Northern Carolina 1A/2A conference race taken some crazy turns already with Louisburg sitting at 5-0 in first place right now, with a win over Roanoke Rapids, and Bunn's only loss was to Roanoke Rapids, who they beat by one run at home, but lost by 10 runs on the road...RR & Lou haven't played their second game yet thanks to weather, whoever finishes first might have 2 or 3 losses by the end

  10. It's only about a year away before the officials in charge of realignment will begin looking at the new set of conferences for the four year cycle to run from 2021-2025....With this year's ADM numbers, I started tinkering with some numbers and realize they have quite a dilemma, and must say that I quickly discovered exactly why they went with the 20/30/30/20 model for the 2017-2021 cycle. As you might guess, if you follow high school sports (or politics) in NC and read a lot of message board banter, the primary complicating issue is charter schools: For years and years, the 25% rule worked well to separate the four classes, but now with SO many schools with enrollments of 300 or less, many of whom do not have a football program, going 25% across the board would put 104-105 schools in each class, but in 1A, only 68 of the 104 current schools in the bottom 25% of all schools actually have a football program. As many more charter schools have applied to open over the next few years, the number of non-football 1A schools will most likely continue to increase. What the NCHSAA did for the 2017 realignment, to offset this problem of a disproportionate number of 1A schools without football, was go to a 20%/30%/30%/20%, using only the football playing schools (about 380) from the total number (about 420), then when they set the ADM range for 1A/2A/3A/4A, then went back and plugged in the non-football schools in the appropriate class, so we wound up with something like 78 4A schools, 114 3A schools, 116 2A schools (DSA & NCSSM without football), and 111 1A schools (including about 75 with football plus about 36 without it). Looking ahead to 2021, many are clamoring to return to the old 25/25/25/25, but here's the problem: If we go to a straight 25/25/25/25 and use the same process of taking out the non-football schools to set the range for each class, then add them in after the class range is set, then we wind up with something like: 95 schools in 4A, 96 schools in 3A, 97 schools in 2A (these all seem reasonable) BUT....132 in 1A, with potentially 4 or 5 new ones added every year or two as more charter schools open...and bear in mind, about 36 or more of them do not have football)....perhaps the board of directors or realignment committee or whoever decides such matters would be ok with this, as it would allow both 1A & 4A football playoffs to probably go back to allowing 64 teams to qualify instead of 48. I think the most troubling aspect of this plan (if football schools are taken out when setting the range) is not that there are 132 1A schools, but that the ranges would be as follows: 1A would be ADM up to ~725.....2A would be ADM ~734-1019.....3A would be ADM ~1023-1506.....and 4A would be ADM ~1507 and up For what it's worth, if they use the same 20/30/30/20 process they used for the 2017 realignment, and take out the non-football schools when setting the class ranges, right now we would be looking at approximately 76 4A schools, 116 3A schools, 115 2A schools, and 111 1A schools (only about 75 with football). The class range cut lines would be as follows: 1A ADM up to 626....2A ADM from 628-1013.....3A ADM from 1014-1596.....4A ADM from 1622-3513 If they go to a straight up 25/25/25/25 and not take into account whether or not a school has a football program....That would put 104-105 schools in each class, and allow 4A to probably go back to 64 teams in the playoffs (and 1A in many sports, not football though), and the cut lines would be as follows: 1A: ADM up to 592.....2A would be ADM 596-943.....3A would be ADM 944-1480......4A would be ADM 1482-3513. Many schools will probably look much different next year, but remember one thing, just like every year if you go into the A or AA subdivisions for the playoffs: It's not just about whether or not your school goes up or down; it's about how much you rise or fall, RELATIVE TO EVERYBODY ELSE

    I believe not going would result in a fine.....they had the chance to opt out of the playoffs, but that has to be done ahead of time, not after the brackets are released

    Well, see that's what makes it interesting.....most people on here only see their team, who their team plays, maybe film from who the teams you played have played, maybe an occasional game you went to watch when your team wasn't playing, and highlights from others in your area on the local news....other than that, we have very little to go on, other than things published online
