6man League Breakdown

6-Man Football Playoff Team Predictions & Projections

6-Man Football Playoff Team Predictions & Projections

This year to reach the playoffs is simple.  Either win your league title or be inside the top 16 of the RPI.  After they select the 16 teams that make the playoffs, they use the CHSAA Seeding Index to seed the playoffs.  This week I will be giving my predictions on who makes the playoffs, but I will also look at if the season ended today who would make the playoffs at the end.  I am picking League Champions from my league predictions article.  I will not even look at seeding till next week or the following week and will just list teams.

6-Man Playoff Predictions (Who I think make the playoffs)

This is who I think make the playoffs and who win the leagues.  In the 6-Man ranks all league champions are guaranteed a berth.  The rest will be selected by RPI.  10 At-Large berths will be given out and are selected via RPI.  Seeding is determined by CHSAA Seeding Index.  I am picking my 10 At-Large teams via non-league schedules, remaining schedules, and how I think teams will do.  League Champions are posted first then the At-Large Teams. In Bold means team have already locked up league titles.

(NOT IN ORDER!)

#1 Genoa-Hugo (Central)

#2 Stratton (East Central)

#3 Fleming (North)

#4 Branson/Kim (South Central)

#5 Cheyenne Wells (South East)

#6 Sierra Grande (Southwest)

At Large Teams

#7 Idalia (East Central #2)

#8 Arickaree/Woodlin (East Central #3)

#9 Prairie (North #2)

#10 Briggsdale (North #3)

#11 North Park (North #4)

#12 Granada (South East #2)

#13 Cheraw (South East #3)

#14 Mountain Valley (Southwest #2)

#15 Hanover (Central #2)

Playoff Hunt for Final Spots

Eads, Peetz, Walsh, Deer Trail, Hi-Plains

I believe the winner of Otis and Hi-Plains will get into the playoffs.  I also think only Eads or Mountain Valley get in as they play each other at the end of the season.  Peetz, Walsh, and Deer Trail need some help to get into the playoffs.

6-Man Playoff Projections (IF the Season Ended Today)

This is if the season ended today 10/6/2021.  Using the RPI I will come up with the Playoff field.  League Champions are still selected with my League Prediction Article.  In the 6-Man ranks all league champions are guaranteed a berth.  The rest will be selected by RPI.  I will seed the bracket with my take at the CHSAA Seeding Index.  This is nothing official and just my take at the index.

League Champions I selected are: ()=RPI, IF Bold means league title locked up.

Central League: Genoa-Hugo (9)

East Central: Stratton (1)

North League: Fleming (5)

South Central: Branson/Kim (10)

South East: Cheyenne Wells (2)

Southwest: Sierra Grande (6)

10 At-Large berths will be given out and are selected via RPI.  Seeding is determined by CHSAA Seeding Index.  The RPI is what I used to select the 10 at-large berths.
