Class 1A Football Playoff Projections Week 10

Final Week of the Regular Season and still a few league title to be given out.  For those I will be predicting who I think will win and then I will give a few scenarios for seeding.  I will do 4 different scenarios; #1 is current RPI, #2 Is Rye and Buena Vista win, #3 is Buena Vista win and Rye lose, and #4 is Buena Vista and Rye both lose.

Qualifying Format

The Top 16 teams in the classification based on the final RPI rankings will qualify for the post-season bracket.  Each conference champion will automatically be placed on the playoff bracket.  Conference champions are determined by the conference Bylaws or policies.  If a conference champion is not ranked in the top 16 based on the final RPI, they will replace the lowest ranked team that is not a conference champion in the top 16.

Seeding Criteria (once qualifiers are determined)

Four sources of data will be collected used when seeding teams for the playoff bracket: RPI Ranking System; MaxPreps; Packard Rankings; Coaches Poll.  Each source of data collected at the end of the regular season will be equally weighted.

Coaches Poll: All Head coaches are required to vote 7 of 9 weeks in the online Coaches Poll during the regular season.

The sources of data collected will be utilized to place teams on the 16-team bracket. Once on the bracket, teams can be moved one slot at maximum based upon a head to head regular season game, if they are consecutive seeds on the bracket.  If the scenario exists where three of more consecutive seeded teams have all played one another, they will remain as originally placed on the bracket

A conference champion not ranked in the top 16 of the final RPI rankings will be placed in the bracket.

When possible, conference opponents will not be paired against one another in the first round and geography will be consideration in the first round.  These adjustments can be made for seeds #9-#16.

Seeding Procedure

Conference champions that are ranked in the Top 16 of the final RPI rankings are placed on the board for consideration.

The seeding committee will determine the #1 overall seed and place that team on the bracket.  The #2 team from the same conference as the #1 overall seed will then be place on the board for consideration.  The seeding committee will then determine the #2 overall seed and place that team on the bracket.  The #2 team from the same conference as the #2 overall seed will then be place on the board for consideration.  The process will be followed until all 16 teams are seeded.
