On the WL-Napolean thread, there were numerous posts stating that Region 1 would sweep the first round. Another poster stated that the top 8 teams from Region 1 were better then the 2nd seed from Region 2, with people agreeing. I think we can lay that to rest now that Region 2 held its own against the Region 1 teams. Flip has been very adamant that Region 1 was far superior to all other regions and their top 2 teams may very well be. But I think it's safe to say that when playoffs come, nobody really knows.

I didn't say I know anything. I'm not dumb enough to come on here and say Cavalier has no shot of winning this week. I have zero bias towards any team remaining in the playoffs.

w/o going back and looking at that thread I'm pretty some people agreed if the #1 seeds played each other and the #2 seeds played each other, etc. There was a decent chance region 1 would win all 4 games. I think I was the only one that picked region 1 every playoff game.

Well you know I have Zero Bias.....but I do recall you posting (and i can find it) that your not going with Cavalier because of a "certain Member" on this Forum..... that was of course during Basketball!!....maybe football erases bias, I don't Know....Like I said, if Hartz still has a flat Tire on Saturday.....it will be a long Saturday!

So when R4F picks every single game in every class if he hasn't seen them play he's picking his favorite team? I haven't seen Divide County play and I think they're going to be in the championship game, that doesn't mean they are my favorite west team.

You don't need to find I believe you. Last BB I thought Cavalier was the best team in region 2, this football season I think they are 3rd best team in the state. It is what I think. I've been wrong before, I'll be wrong in the future too.

Nobody can see all the teams and most are just going to take a pick on who will win them. What I was talking about is you being so adament that no other team can compare with the region 1 teams this year. Give credit where credit is due and there are many other great teams out there that aren't in Region 1. Like what was brought up in a previous post.....the top 8 teams in region 1 are better than the 2-4 seeds in region 2 garbage.

Halfway through the season I stated that there would be a surprise champion from the west this year and I went with CM. I'm sticking with that pick and have them winning on the road at Northstar in an upset this week 30-24. I think DC beats MR again in the other matchup out west 36-20. In the east, I said NB would be my surprise pick and knock off Nap in round two and I'm sticking with that, too. I'll go with 12-8 NB. The other east game is going to be a heck of a game and is really a tossup who wins, but I'll go wtih the home team and Cav's d to squeek out a win over WL 24-22.

There was also at least one poster who picked all region 2 teams if I recall corectly. I realize people do not like to think that their teams are not as good as teams from another area. But a region one sweep was not all that far fetched. Congrats to North Boarder and Cavalier. But remember it took a last second score and an unusually accurate day from their qb to beat LaMoure, and in talking to Cavalier fans after the game, their victory was much closer than the final score indicated. I don't think the other two games in the east where competitive, where they? I have not talked to anyone at either of those games, only seen the scores.

This is why your previous statement of picking your favorite teams is not true.

Top to bottom I don't think there was another region that could compare to region 1 this year.

I'm not sure there are any "great" teams in the state. Definetely some good ones. Cavalier, NB and DC are all pretty good.

Like what was brought up in a previous post.....the top 8 teams in region 1 are better than the 2-4 seeds in region 2 garbage.

That is a poor statement and I don't think anyone said it, I know it wasn't me.

Edit: I went back and looked and no one ever said the top 8 teams in region 1 are better than the 2-4 in region 2.

From: http://www.ndhsaa.org/athletics/footbal ... egulations

RECOMMENDED VIDEO EXCHANGE:


Teams involved in the first round are encouraged to exchange videos of the two previous games or suitable substitutes as determined by the coaches involved.

Home teams involved in play-off games should video the games and distribute copies to the visiting team and to the opponent of the winning team for the next play-off game.

You don't need to find I believe you. Last BB I thought Cavalier was the best team in region 2, this football season I think they are 3rd best team in the state. It is what I think. I've been wrong before, I'll be wrong in the future too.



I would buy into anything.....Nap and NS.... Divide County and W-l......they could all easily be better than Cav then NB.....I don't know!!!
The one reason I am not comparing Cavalier to anyone as far as being better or worse is because they played A ball last year.....They had a nice run and sorta bombed in the last game.....this young Team has not exceeded expectations....they just didn't have to worry about it.....in the end their rated #1 (which could a come earlier) and they are focused.
Anybody on this forum who has their mind set on who they think is best, will never in a million years change their minds just because a few games get played and the theres a last man standing.....believe me! I've been a member of this forum long enough to know that.............. Everything's a Fluke!!!

Now I am not saying that the 2-4 seeds in region 2 are garbage. IMO some of the non playoff teams in Region 1 were better than the 3 and 4 seeds from region 2. NGS could have easily won their game this weekend by 50 over NRS, but showed a lot of class. From the sounds of it WL left no doubt against Hillsboro either.

Nobody said the top 8 or top 7 teams could beat NB. All that crap is made up because the region 2 backers want to feel disrespected.

I already did that. Quoted it in front of yours a few back.
Listen, all I am doing is making a point of how hard it is to say one region is "so much" better then another region when there was no play outside of each region to compare. Your statement of a region 1 sweep being very possible and another of yours stating that region 1 is the best in the state, easily, just kind of set me off. You may be correct that from top to bottom they are. Just didn't sit right with me at the time.

"could match up" and "beat" are two different things. NB is better than those teams, the next 3 could compete with the other Region 2 teams mentioned.
