Covington should just play regular season.This is definitely a different year. This would be like doing basketball or baseball at the 1/2 point, there has to be some forecasting.
You gotta start out by rewarding record assuming the following 3 are 5-0 at seeding they separate a little
Then record & conference blend for the next 3 I'd go with (4&5 are tight)
7-9 These teams still control enough to move up some - Especially fairbanks
7. Fairbanks - admitted OHC bias
8. Covington - historical respect
9. Allen East - I know the least
So 7-9 you can argue But I think these 3 groups of 3 are pretty real.
seeds pick their spots. every seed 2-8 could try to avoid Coldwater and go to the other side of the bracket.Are the slots seeded or do the seeds pick their spots? If FR gets a 4 seed and picks their spot, there is no way they go to the same side of the bracket as CW.
I believe the seeds are slotted. I am basing that off the 2021 format. It clearly states the seeds are slotted. 5-12, 6-11, 7-10, 8-9, etc.seeds pick their spots. every seed 2-8 could try to avoid Coldwater and go to the other side of the bracket.
They will just build the bracket off the seeds. The first post on this thread is an example of that. If coldwater is voted #1 by the coaches they go in the 1 slot. Whoever is voted #2 will go to that slot, etc. what is to like or not like? The only complaints will be because a team is voted too high or too low.interesting. i actually did not see that part until just now. i don’t like the OHSAA doing the placing, unless they do it somewhat geographically
personally if they're going to seed it like basketball and baseball, they should do the bracket the same way. maybe some of the higher ranked teams prefer to not have a bye week, and letting the higher seeds choose where they go eliminates that. also, some schools may not want to travel far to start off with. they could elect to play a similar seed that is closer to home. im not bashing the system, but I would however like it to be uniform between sports.They will just build the bracket off the seeds.

I think you are spot on with 1-3. I don’t see how WJ is not the 4. Final four team last year. Perennial power with one lose to Mechanicsburg.Pretty sure that most of the 22 coaches in the region will place Coldwater at the 1 seed and then probably Mechanicsburg at 2 and Adena 3. Crossing my fingers that maybe PV at 4, much rather have WJ come to our place in rd. 3 than drive up there.
Versailles scrimmaged Covington and just played Fort Recovery. Unless Covington improved night and day since then, the Indians would put a running clock on the Bucks this year IMO.Since we have dueling threads..........I'll repost too
Your 1-3 I agree pretty cut and dry
But 4-7 ..........
I do get conflicted on record vs eyeball and schedule
You have Covington at 4 - I'm going with no way. At 4-1 are better than 4-1 West Jeff? No. Better than 4-1 paint Valley? ehhh IDK Better than 2-3 Fort Recovery? No
I'm Okay with Covington at 7 just ahead of Fairbanks/Allen East/Greeneweiw but even then those are the teams they go with and depends on what you think of paint valley
Arcanum over Greeneveiw -- Nah
