    I did this is about 25 minutes during planning today. Don't quote me on the totals but a good starting point I think.

    1. EC Glass 3-0 76 pts = 25.3
    2. Salem 2-1 65 pts = 21.6
    3. Byrd 3-0 64 pts = 21.3
    4. Cville 2-1 60 pts = 20
    5. GW 2-1 60 pts = 20
    6. Pulaski 2-1 56 pts = 18.6
    7. BBurg 2-1 55 pts = 18.3
    8. Amherst 1-2 54 pts = 18

    9. JF 1-2 47 pts = 15.6
    10. LCA 0-2 25 pts = 12.5

    It is very early so things will obviously change.

    Observations: Glass with 5A and 6A wins give them a nice lead. Salem jumps Byrd via 6A, 4A win and 4A unbeaten loss. Byrd's two 3A wins and a winless 4A win have them in 3rd.

    I'd say the Seminole teams have a toughest schedule, playing each of the other three 4A teams plus 3A powers Brookville and Heritage.

    Salem, BBurg and Pulaski play each other as well as PH.

    GW has Magna Vista. We have the Jefferson slate, which I personally think will be stronger this year than in years past.

    Byrd has SR and LB as tough games left. Their soft non district schedule could come back to bite them, they could go 10-0 but may get outpointed by a 9-1 Salem/Blacksburg/Glass.

    Teams like Glass and Amherst with tougher non district foes could go 6-4/7-3 and outpoint a 7-3/8-2 team. Blacksburg has played some tough opponents but 3A LB and 2A Giles and Richlands won't help them too much unless they go 10-0 or 9-1. Beating a 9-1 2A is like beating a 7-3 4A or 8-2 3A on the points scale. Will be interesting to see how it all shakes out. 4D will have the most 7+ win teams of any region in the state, mark my words!

    I think its safe to say 7 wins should get you in the top 8. At 6-4, you'll be sweating and praying for help on that final friday.

    Good Luck to you and yours.

    Orange County Hornets, Porterfield Park, 48-14. Motivation is upon us for this bye week. JD opener next friday!

    I said that when the new classifications were announced last year. It's for this reason that I wish VHSL did playoffs strictly based on points. Take the top 32 teams in each classification, regardless of region.

    I cannot agree more, Vol. That is exactly how a true state level playoff should be run. But we all know it will never happen since that approach will result in two things which will rear up yet again: travel complaints and reduced gate receipts.

    I understand the reduced gate complaint but I never understood the travel time argument. In a state that covers the area that Va does, travel time is inevitable regardless of playoff format.
