    Playoff Information

    I know I'm jumping ahead, but do we know yet which district winners play each other in the 3rd round of the playoffs, and which region winners play each other in round 4? Also, where are the state title games played this year?

    The 3rd round won’t be determined until the results of the 2nd round are over. It will be based on a ranking of each team.

    I posted this in another thread a couple of weeks ago...

    Once the field is whittled down to the final eight teams, those teams will be reseeded within each semi-state using an RPI system.

    The Quarterfinals would look like this...

    West #1 vs. West #4
    West #2 vs. West #3

    East #1 vs. East #4
    East #2 vs. East #3

    The winners of those games would meet in the semis. Higher seeds host. No more alternating between odd and even years/districts.
    Championship games are still in Lexington.

    Not 100% sure. But I'm assuming the KHSAA is bringing in someone to oversee the RPI system for them. I couldn't begin to explain what all goes into the computer formula. I haven't found anything specific online.

    A little off topic but the KHSAA sent this out last night.

    The Board also finalized the schedule for the 2019 state football finals on Thursday, accepting a recommendation to set the championship schedule at Kroger Field as follows:

    Friday, December 6th – 1A – 2 PM, 3A – 7 PM
    Saturday, December 7th– 2A – 1 PM, 4A – 4:30 PM, 5A – 8:00 PM
    Sunday, December 8th – 6A – 2 PM

    I think you have it right for the quarterfinals but from my interpretation, the semifinals will be highest remaining seed vs lowest remaining seed and second highest vs third highest, regardless of east or west.

    I know I am way late to the ballgame, but I don't like it.

    After looking at it again, you're right. That makes three different seeding processes - district, third-round, and fourth-round.

    That last re-seeding seems like one too many, but I'm willing to give this a chance before passing judgement.
