Anybody have the AA and A brackets? Shouldn't the tournament start this weekend? I know the Turkey bowl but what is the other game in AA? Any info. out there?
The format changed to a point system to prevent the 2016 playoff with a winless team getting a bid. SJC and GZ opted out but the others were eligible just didnt have enough "quality points".
Pretty sure Sidwell, Maret and St. ALbans were not included. It looks like the new set up for the low division is charter school champ v low dciaa champ. Privates crushed field the past 2 years in a row. Wasn't fair to others.
Sidwell was 2-7
St. Albans 2-8
Maret was 5-4 but their schedule is littered with lowly ranked teams and their one good win is against MSD. They did beat St. James (6-4) but they were decimated with injuries by the time they played with their starting QB, WR, and I think RB.
No offense, these schools wouldn't have done well this year.
Based on the point system developed this season. Pull out the 2 turkey bowl teams (semifinal for Class "AA") and 2 gravy bowl teams (semifinal for Class "A"). The next two teams make up the other semifinal game.
