Well, in terms of the City we know that Riverside should win the City title this year and that Bay View is definately in the playoffs. With 4 games to go, what remaining 1-2 teams from the Richardson do you guys see qualifying?
Here is a rundown of the "bubble" teams:
Bradley Tech (2-3, 2-0)
Riverside and Bay View are legit playoff teams. I don't see Tech being able to realisticly compete in these games as they are very overmatched. What determines there playoff quest is how they play versus Hamilton and Pulaski-two teams also in the hunt. Bottom line: Although Tech surpised people with their 2-0 conference start, they put a scare in to the alumi and split the remaining 4, finsih 4-2 in conference (4-5 overall) and get in.
Pulaski (2-3, 1-2)
This is a much improved Pulaski team. But two conference losses already hurt this team. Bottom line they must run the table if they expect to go.
Hamilton (1-4, 1-2)
@ North Division
@ Bradley Tech
The 'Cats begin their remaining 4 games versus North Division in a non-conference game. North Division is much better than the past (having beat Washngton). In terms of playoffs this game is insignificant, but important nonetheless. The big test will come versus Tech. They too, must win all remaining conference games to get in. Bottom line: Hamilton wins out, goes from 2-7 in '05 to 5-4.
Washington (2-3, 0-2)
The Purgolders probably have the steepest hill to climb. Some how they must find a way to beat either Bay View or Riverside and then beat both Vincent and Hamilton. Bottom line: better luck next year.
Vincent (0-5, 0-2)
@ Bay View
Do you believe in miracles? Despite being arguably the 2nd most athletic team in the conference Vincent starts the season 0-5 for the first time in school history. In order to get in they have to win out. Bottom line: Vincent splits the next four, winning both at home, to finish 2-7.
BT gets a split, beating Hamilton and Pulaski to qualify.
Pulaski loses the rest of their games and does not qualify.
Hamilton wins 2 of their 3 conference games (over Pulaski and Washington) and qualifies as a .500 team.
Washington loses the rest of their games and does not qualify.
Vincent splits their last two games and does not qualify.
