From what I gather if anyone of the three teams directly behind Ellet loses Ellet is in assumming they win. Also if New Philly in the 5th spot (playing Dover) loses it comes down to how the teams New Philly beat do. Wow this is fun.
In 1983 four teams had to lose in the final week for Garfield to get in. They all four lost, Garfield got in and rolled all the way to the state title game. Makes you wonder how many teams that really deserve to get in don't.
In the week before the championship game, Garfield was ranked 3rd in the nation in USA Today. If we would have won, we would have been the paper national champion. The top three teams lost their state championships.
