Do they draw these out of a hat?  Seriously.  Otherwise, there was a total no-brainer in 2a. 1E and 1S should be on complete opposite sides of the bracket.  Those 2 teams should meet in finals if they take care of business.  Now they meet in Semis again.  Great job as usual AAA!!!   ::)

I agree Brian, I was hoping to see them in finals assuming we both make it but unless one of us gets the 2 out of regionals we will meet up in semis again...just like state 3 years ago, the winner of the semi game will be the ultimate state champ(that's the year we met EPC in semis up in Cedar Ridge and EPC was the state champ).

If either team makes it to the finals do they really care who they beat to get there.

It just makes for a better championship game to have the best teams play. The number 1 & 2 teams shouldn't meet till the big show.

How do you know who #1 & #2 actually are at this time?

I think what she means is the two teams perceived by most to be 1 &2. Just looks like a case where you set it up for what SHOULD happen. That's how I feel about it. They both obviously still have to earn those spots

Going off current 2A rankings...of course it's subject to change but the season is fast coming to an end.

It's my understanding that Brackets are made up a year or so in advance....Now if it was like football brackets were this year with same district playing each other in the second round I'd understand the gripe..>But you still gotta beat one team at a time, and take care of business against everyone no matter who they are and when you play them....

I totally agree HF, it's just unfortunate when that happens. However it could be our best case scenario since we had such an issue playing at state finals. I've said several times that if that game had been played at Hampton, we'd have done much better...anybody that saw them play last year would have to agree that we played nowhere near our usual game in finals.

Cedar Ridge the past couple of years tended to make teams not play their usual game. I know it was last year but EPC played JC just as tough as Clarendon did, we just didn't make the shot at the end. Most thought that game would be a blowout.

While I agree JC and Clarendon are the top 2 teams, I don't think they are way better than some of the other good 2A teams.

There will be teams on the other side of the bracket that are more than capable of beating both Clarendon and JC

I'm not sure either of your last 2 comments are accurate. I would say that there probably aren't 2 maybe 3 teams that can beat Clarendon on any given day, and for that to happen, I think Clarendon has a sup par night and other team has a better than normal night.

The seedings are rotated every years. It's a fair system set in place to avoid using human judgment to decide the playoff rankings.

And those teams will more than likely be on the other side of the bracket PIck.
