List/Trivia/Quote: Strength atop 7-AAAAAA makes for tough playoff contingent

LIST

Last month, GHSF Daily used the computer Maxwell Ratings to rank the regions using the average rating of each team. Below, the regions are rated using a different formula, one that rates only the top five teams in each region. This formula provides a better look at how difficult it is to make the playoffs in a given region and how the region might fare in the playoffs.

The number is important but not entirely indicative. Marietta and North Cobb both beat Region1 foes. North Cobb also beat a Region 7 foe. Both lost to Lovejoy.
