Great match ups across the board. GE vs. LHS will be a great game. My prediction, we will see another LHS vs. FS game in sub-state.

Ponder this for a moment... You are from another state and you see the top division (6A) playoff bracket and see 3 teams with losing records - one at 1-8 no less. Seriously? How can KSHSAA justify this year after year? There is no way Kansas high school football gains any kind of regional or national respect from this. It is a crime that good teams with WINNING RECORDS are sitting at home now and average programs are rewarded for bad seasons because they are lucky enough to be in a district with teams as bad as them. Just not right! My 2 cents...

I just don't understand how you can get in with one win? This playoff system is so confusing to me.

Three teams tied in their district at 1-2, jr. Wichita North had the best point spread in district between the 3 teams even though they lost 70-7 to Wichita Northwest, because you can only get a maximum of 13 points plus or minus in one game. Supposedly to keep teams from running up the score...that worked real well with them losing 70-7, eh? They need to at least expand that to 28, 13 is a stupid limit. There's a big differnce between beating ssomeone by 13 and beating them by 28. I understand you don't want to embarass kids but obviously this is not stopping teams from running up the score.

Yes, WN in at 1-8 is ludicrous and something needs to be done but it's not the only ridiculous thing this year. SME and LAW both on the road in round 1 at 7-2 and Topeka High on the road at 8-1 plating at a 7-2 team. SME is playing at a 5-4 team. SMW will probably have to play two games in Lawrence to get to state in spite of the fact that they're the 2 seed. There's got to be a better way. It's hard to imagina a worse system.
