Who won the last head to head matchup between R2 and R4? And the year before when St Xavier was state champion, how did R2 do against X as compared to the defending state champs from R3? You're just angry and bitter about SHS. As a GWOC fan, I expected more from you. Read the Cincinnati game article I posted above. Does that sound like they're not taking Springfield seriously? And, the only reason Elks won 2 playoff games this year is because they expanded the playoffs to another round. This year, Elks season ended in the regional semifinals the same way it always does, even when they were R4. If what you say is true, Elks would go farther in R2. But they don't, do they? They've never even made the regional finals in R2. Why didn't they beat Whitmer last year who then got pounded by Marysville who got pounded and shutout by SHS?Not bitter at all; just Springfield is a good program, however, not a dynasty and I'll stick to my opinion that R2 is crap. How many State Titles has R2 produced compared to R4?
In addition, Centerville has finally won consecutive playoffs games this year for the first time since 91, why, because they're now playing in R2, if they were in R4, they might win the first but be out by the second.
