So, Dear Reader, here’s a question for you…
How much of an underdog-flying-below-the-radar type are you if you’re a highly seeded team in the playoffs?
When Matt Stewart and I were doing the Football Fridays in Georgia Bracketology show Monday afternoon, we got the chance to go through the brackets and see what the Round 1 fun was set to be. There were a few teams out there that, when you looked at them, you wondered aloud where they came from and why hadn’t we talked about them sooner.
A few examples: Rockmart, Brooks County, Milton, Hillgrove, Creekside, Warner Robins, Cartersville, Pierce County, Monroe Area … you see where I’m going here.
In each of their respective classifications (with other teams on the list as well), there are teams where the eyes instantly gravitate. In 7A, it’s Colquitt and Grayson. In 6A, it’s Lee County. In 5A, it’s Rome as they chase a three-peat. In 4A, it’s BT. In 3A, it’s Calhoun and Peach County. In 2A, it’s the defending champ in Hapeville Charter. And in Class A, it’s Clinch, Irwin, and ELCA.
