Football Playoff Scenarios 2014

Football
Kevin Koile – wyopreps.com

There’s one football game left on the schedule for almost every team in the 2014 Wyoming High School Regular Season.

Some teams have their playoff spot secured and are waiting to learn which team is their first round opponent.

Others are in the post-season, but don’t know yet if they will play at home, or on the road in the first round.

A few teams haven’t made it in yet, but are close. They just need a win, and a few need a win and some help from other teams.

If worse comes to worse, there is also the 3-way or 4-way tie-breaker play-in game, or a flip of the coin.

In the long run, not only to some teams need to take care of business in week 8, but they have to watch the scoreboard as well, because there are certain scenarios that will determine their playoff fate.

Before going through the scenarios, first an explanation of tie-breakers, according to the Wyoming High School Activities Association:

2-way tie: Use head-to-head result.

3-way tie: If one team beat the other 2 tied teams, or lost to the other 2 tied teams, that team moves up or moves down. Use head-to-head for the remaining 2 tied teams.

3-way tie, all beat each other, and all teams are going to the playoffs: This happens when Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats Team A. The first thing is check record vs. the highest team in the conference, not involved in the tie. If that doesn’t work, use the next highest team, next highest, etc…until all teams in the conference not involved in the tie have been checked. If and when a difference is found while going down the standings, that team will move up or move down. Use head-to-head for the other 2 tied teams. If the tie has not been broken, then a 3-way coin flip will be conducted to determine seeding.

3-way Coin Flip: The coin flip will most likely take place on Saturday, October 25th, after the conclusion of the State Cross Country Meet. Representatives from each of the 3 teams will flip their own coin. If all 3 gets heads or tails, then reflip. Once there is 2 heads and 1 tail, or 2 tails and 1 head, the team with the odd flip of the coin is the loser. Use head-to-head for the remaining 2 tied teams.

3-way tie, all beat each other, and at least one team in the tie will end up missing the playoffs: This happens when Team A beats Team B, Team B beats Team C, and Team C beats Team A. The first thing is check record vs. the highest team in the conference, not involved in the tie. If that doesn’t work, use the next highest team, next highest, etc…until all teams in the conference not involved in the tie have been checked. If and when a difference is found while going down the standings, that team will move up or move down. Use head-to-head for the other 2 tied teams. If the tie has not been broken, then the 3 teams will gather at a neutral site, on Tuesday, October 28th, and play each other again, and each each contest will be 2 quarters long. Other details of the game to be explained later. The team or teams that survive will advance to the playoffs, and will play their first round playoff game on Saturday, November 1st.

4-way Tie: (We believe similar rules are used for a 5-way tie)

If one team beat the other 3, or lost to the other 3, that team moves up or moves down. Revert back to 3-way tie-breaker rules for the remaining tied teams. If that doesn’t work, check head-to-head vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie. If that doesn’t work, use the next highest team, next highest, etc…If and when a difference is found while going down the standings, that team will move up or move down. Revert back to 3-way tie-breaker rules for remaining tied teams. If the 4-way still isn’t broken, then the 4 teams will get together and play a 4-way tie-breaker play-in game, to be played at a neutral site on Tuesday, October 28th. Each game will be 2 quarters long. Other details to be announced later. The teams that survive, will play their first round playoff game on Saturday, November 1st.

With the tie-breaker rules covered, let’s examine the situations:

 

4A: (If our analysis is correct, a 3-way/4-way tie-breaker play-in game, will not be needed.)

Natrona: #1 seed

Gillette, Sheridan and East: East plays at Gillette in Week 8, while Sheridan goes to Cheyenne South. If Gillette wins, then the seeds are set…Gillette 2, Sheridan 3, East 4. Sheridan’s outcome vs. South would be irrelevant, because the Broncs hold head-to-head over the Thunderbirds, should they lose vs. the Bison. If East beats Gillette and Sheridan loses, then it’s East 2, Gillette 3, Sheridan 4 (East would have head-to-head over Gillette). If East beats Gillette and Sheridan wins, then there’s a 3-way, with East beating Gillette, Gillette beating Sheridan, and Sheridan beating East. A 3-way coin flip would take place, with the odd flip of the coin, being the loser and would get the #4 seed. Revert back to head-to-head for the other 2 tied teams, to determine the #2 and #3 seeds.

We believe we have anticipated all 16 possible scenarios surrounding Central, Kelly Walsh, South, Laramie, Evanston and Rock Springs.

In every case, Central and Kelly Walsh are in the playoffs regardless.

Cheyenne Central and Kelly Walsh: Central is home vs. Evanston, while Kelly Walsh is home vs. Laramie. If Central wins, they are the #5 regardless of anything else. If both Central and Kelly Walsh win, Central is #5 and Kelly Walsh is #6, because the Indians have head to head vs. the Trojans. KW can get the #5 seed with a win and a Central loss.

Evanston: In with a win at Central. The Red Devils can also get in with a loss, provided South loses and Laramie beats Kelly Walsh (see explanation below).

South: In with a win home vs. Sheridan. There are a few situations where the Bison can still make the playoffs with a loss, because the win vs. Central earlier this season would pay off in certain situations. South is out with a loss AND if Laramie beats Kelly Walsh. Also out with a loss, AND Evanston AND Kelly Walsh both win.

Laramie: The Plainsmen have the most unique situation, because they can lose and still make the playoffs with the right amount of help, and they can win and miss the playoffs, if certain situations happen.

Rock Springs: There is only 1 scenario where the Tigers can make the playoffs, provided a number of other things happen. They have no chance of making the playoffs, should they lose vs. NC.

The 16 scenarios:

Central wins, Kelly Walsh wins, South wins, Rock Springs wins: Central (4-5) is #5, Kelly Walsh (4-5) is #6, and South (3-6) is #7. Laramie (2-7) then gets the #8 seed, because the Plainsmen beat both Evanston (2-7) and Rock Springs (2-7), who would both be eliminated.

Central wins, Kelly Walsh wins, South wins, Rock Springs loses: Central (4-5) is #5, Kelly Walsh (4-5) is #6, and South (3-6) is #7. Laramie (2-7) would get the #8 seed, due to head-to-head win vs. Evanston (2-7). The Red Devils and Rock Springs (1-8) would be eliminated.

Central wins, Kelly Walsh wins, South loses, Rock Springs wins: Central (4-5) is #5, and Kelly Walsh (4-5) is #6. This creates a 4-way, for 7, 8, 9, 10 with Rock Springs (2-7), Evanston (2-7), Laramie (2-7) and South (2-7). Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, Rock Springs would get the #7 seed, due to having a win vs. Natrona, whereas the other teams don’t. As for the other 3 teams, South, Laramie, and Evanston all beat other. Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, South would get the #8 seed, due to having a win vs. Central, whereas the other teams don’t. Laramie and Evanston would be eliminated.

Central wins, Kelly Walsh wins, South loses, Rock Springs loses: Central (4-5) is #5 and Kelly Walsh (4-5) is #6. There is a 3-way tie with South (2-7), Laramie (2-7) and Evanston (2-7) for 7, 8, 9 and they beat each other. Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, South would get the #7 seed, due to having a win vs. Central, whereas the other teams don’t. Laramie would get the #8 seed over Evanston, due to head-to-head win. Evanston and Rock Springs (1-8) would be eliminated.

Central wins, Laramie wins, South wins, Rock Springs wins: Central (4-5) is #5. South (3-6), Laramie (3-6), Kelly Walsh (3-6) would be in a 3-way for 6, 7, and 8. Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, South would get the #6 seed, due to having a win vs. Sheridan and/or Central, whereas the other teams do not. Laramie would get the #7 seed, due to head-to-head win vs. KW, who would fall to the #8 seed. Evanston (2-7) and Rock Springs (2-7) would be eliminated.

Central wins, Laramie wins, South wins, Rock Springs loses: Central (4-5) is #5. South (3-6), Laramie (3-6) and Kelly Walsh (3-6) would be in a 3-way tie for 6. 7, 8 and all beat each other. Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, South would get the #6 seed, due to having a win vs. Sheridan and/or Central, whereas the other 2 don’t.

South would get the #5 seed due to having a win vs. Sheridan, whereas the other teams don’t. Kelly Walsh and Evanston would move up, because the Red Devils and Trojans have a win vs. South, where as Central and Laramie don’t.

3A West:

The Worland at Green River game is irrelevant, because both teams are not going to the playoffs.

That leaves Cody at Powell, and Star Valley at Jackson.

The only way Jackson can get the #1 seed, is to win home vs. Star Valley, hope Powell beats Cody, and then win the 3-way coin flip.

Cody and Star Valley win: Cody is #1 seed and would host the Rawlins/Torrington loser. Jackson, Powell and Star Valley would be in a 3-way tie for 2, 3 and 4, and all would’ve beaten each other. This goes to a 3-way coin flip to determine seeding.

1A West:

Cokeville: #1 seed. The Panthers have head-to-head vs. Rocky Mountain.

Rocky Mountain: #2 seed. The Panthers have head-to-head vs. Shoshoni.

That leaves Wind River (3-4), Burlington (3-4) and Riverside (3-4) in a 3-way tie for the #4 seed, and they all beat each other.

Kaycee at H.E.M.: Winner is #2 seed, loser is #3.

Midwest: In with a win home vs. Normative Services.

Normative Services: In with a win at Midwest AND a Hulett loss at Rock River.

Hulett: Needs to win at Rock River AND needs Normative Services to beat Midwest. This would force the 3-way tie-breaker playoff game.

3-way-tie: A 3-way tie between Midwest, NSI and Hulett could happen if Midwest beats Hulett, NSI beats Midwest, then Hulett beats Rock River. This would result in a 3-way tie-breaker play-in game.

Rock River: Eliminated.

 

6-Man West:

The only game that matters is Farson-Eden at Little Snake River.

Farson-Eden: #1 west seed with win, due to head-to-head win vs. Dubois. #4 seed with a loss and heading to Guernsey-Sunrise, due to head-to-head loss vs. Meeteetse.

Dubois: Assured of no worse than #2 seed. They are the #1 seed if Little Snake River wins, because the Rams have head-to-head vs. the Rattlers. They are the #2 seed if Farson-Eden wins, because the Rams lose head-to-head vs. the Pronghorns.

Little Snake River: #2 seed with a win. Loses head-to-head vs. Dubois for #1 seed. #3 seed with a loss, due to having head-to-head win vs. Meeteetse.

Meeteetse: #3 seed if Little Snake River wins, because the Longhorns have head-to-head over the Pronghorns. #4 seed and heading to Guernsey-Sunrise if Farson-Eden wins, because the Longhorns lose head-to-head vs. the Rattlers.

In short:

Farson-Eden beats Little Snake River: Farson-Eden is #1 seed, Dubois #2, Little Snake River #3, and Meeteetse #4.
