With everyone making the postseason, does this Friday count as a playoff win in everyone's opinion?
Might as well count as a playoff win. If a historically bad program gets the opportunity to "make the playoffs" and upsets someone then they deserve to count that as a playoff win. Rules changed for this year, everyone is given an opportunity. You still have to go out and win the game.

There are quite a few games that could come down to the wire with a lot of rematches from the regular season! Should be a fun week in 2a

I agree, super hard to pick the games. The byes for the top seeds make for great games across the board this week!

Through the predictions yesterday, a couple of observations:

We have unanimity on wins by Estherville-Lincoln Central, Algona, Independence, Monticello, Mount Vernon, Mid-Prairie, Wellman, Saydel & Greene County.

We were evenly split on Oelwein at South Tama County, Tama & West Liberty at Maquoketa.

Good luck to everyone's teams tonight.

Toughest game of the night for us picking was Anamosa over CPU 25-24 with only one of us picking Anamosa. The near disaster game was Saydel over Clarke, Osceola 14-13 where we all had picked Saydel.

For those who follow the bcmoore rankings, following his predications would have gotten you 19 as well.

Some better games this week. I think the 3 games to watch will be West Liberty vs Mount Vernon, Tipton vs Mid Prairie and the game of the week will be Clarinda vs Greene County. The District 1 games will be hard fought battles I think both Lyon County teams will win but they will be close games.

Right now I see the top 5 games as
Algona vs. ELC- They have really similar resumes, and simlar margins of victory against common opponents
IFA vs. Indee- I think Indee will win, but something tells me that this one will be close, Indee didn't play Waukon or Crestwood who I would see as the other two top teams in their district so I have questions I guess about them.
Crestwood vs. Monticello- No one has mentioned this one, but Crestwood I think will give Monticello a good game, they have always been well coached.
West Liberty vs. Mount Vernon- Mount Vernon was rolling along nicely until they met up with Solon, then last week they didn't look that impressive against Vinton, West Liberty is always a tough out.
Tipton vs. Mid Praire- On paper this could be a barn burner, I think if Mid Prairie is at their best the win, but they haven't always been at their best this year.

A lot of people mentioned Clear Lake vs. Spirit Lake, I don't think that will be a blow out, but I expect Spirit Lake to win with more confidence than some of these other games I guess.

BC Moore has the spread of Tipton vs Mid Praire at .87, it also looks like this thread is pretty torn on which way it go. Is this the matchup to go watch this week?

Depends on where you are at in the State. It also looks like Clarinda-Greene County could be an interesting match-up. I'll be at the Oelwein-Solon game cheering for the Spartans.
