If this scenario plays out it looks like to me the toughest game for McEachern/Colquit will be each other in the first round till the semis. Wow what a cupcake bracket.

@Yo, can’t be in toughest bracket every year. Last year we had to go through North Gwinnett, Camden, and then Grayson all on the road. Besides in playoffs it always easier on paper you still got to play the game.

@Chip Saye
…today’s “Projecting the playoff field: Week 12″ article seems to be at odds with yesterday’s “Predictions: East Paulding, Grayson will bring home region titles” article…

@Region 7-AAA
…in theory ….maybe …but these projections haven’t always been so …take for example, this weekly column had Grayson winning region 8 for 2 weeks after the Parkview upset of Grayson despite the fact that it would have taken 2 loses by Parkview down the stretch …come to thing ’bout that it still does :D …also come to think ’bout it (not sure) wasn’t until after Parkview beat Brookwood were they projected to win their region…
