Would the human element do better than the current system?
This is how I would seed it. Feel free to post your own seedings and let the debates begin.
4. Gilbert Christian
5. Valley Lutheran
7. Valley Union
9. Glendale Prep
10. St. David
12. TIE between Joe City and Ajo (I will explain)
I feel Mogollon deserves the higher seeding over Pima. Record is unblemished and they have looked very strong the back end of their schedule. Gilbert Christian with the nod over Valley Lutheran due to tougher overall schedule and their tough showing in Mogollon with a back up QB.
Ray over VU due to head to head victories. Superior gets the 8 spot over GPA due to the tougher overall schedule.
Why the TIE between Ajo and Joe City? I have seen Joe City this year, but not Ajo. I would need to at least see film of Ajo before I make a decision.
Why not Duncan? They beat Joe City. Well, you have to look at when they played. Teams improve over the course of the year. Duncan seemed to limp to the finish line.
Why not Mayer? Similar to Duncan. They did not end well.
When looking at head to head. A lot of these bubble teams beat each other. Mayer beat Ajo. Duncan beat Joe City. Joe City beat Mayer. Etc.
In the end, I think Joe City and Ajo are the most deserving for how they finished. And I would want to see film on Ajo to make that final decision.
