Playoff Time: The Moment Of Truth!

 

    OK! Throw out the rankings and the regular season records—now it all comes down to one elimination game at a time.  

 

    They say “you are what you are.”  The meaning in this case: A team’s record is a reflection of its talents and flaws and a strong indicator of its potential playoff performance. But unusual and unexpected things—sometimes—occur during this time of the year when the weather is cold and expectations are high and nerves are on end.  And in this year’s playoff bracket with every team, save Omaha Northwest and Fremont (sorry guys), having a realistic chance of winning every game they play—we could see more than our fair share of unexpected outcomes. Unless, of course, you believe that undefeated Creighton Prep and Millard West are superior teams headed on an inevitable collision  course pitting Nebraka’s top 2 ranked Class A teams against one another in the state finals.  


    Creighton Prep vs. Millard West would be a great final, and based on their regular season records and performances, a game that should happen. However, the strength of the Class A bracket suggests to me that one– if not both–of these teams will not reach Lincoln. On the other hand, if I am wrong, what a game it would be!
