Football 2008: Picking the MVC

I’m far from an expert on Class 4A football, but I’m going to take a wild stab at this:

MISSISSIPPI DIVISION

*Iowa City High 8-1

*Cedar Rapids Xavier 7-2

*Cedar Rapids Kennedy 5-4

*Dubuque Hempstead 5-4

*Dubuque Wahlert 5-4

*Iowa City West 3-6

Waterloo West 2-7

VALLEY DIVISION

*Cedar Rapids Washington 9-0

*Cedar Falls 8-1

*Cedar Rapids Prairie 5-4

*Cedar Rapids Jefferson 3-6

Linn-Mar 2-7

Waterloo East 1-8

Dubuque Senior 0-9

*playoff qualifier

    So, 3-6 can make the playoffs? Hmmmm….

  2. Beef Says:

    3-6, and perhaps even 2-7(if the tiebreakers go right), could make the playoffs this season in 4A. The state changed the format and are allowing 32 teams per class. 4A only has 48 schools, as opposed to 64+ in the others. Team with losing records will certainly make the Substate round.

    I don’t think 2-7 is going to make it very often. And 3-6 is no guarantee, though some 3-6’s probably will get in, in Class 4A. It’s a shame.
