They definitely have an argument based on their record, but their strength of schedule is a joke for a Division 1 team. They have played all lower level teams, struggled with the last place team in the Trinity League, and will likely beat an SC team that got throttled by CDM. It could be a one-and-done year for MV regardless if they are #3 or #4. If they do advance, it'll look a lot like last year (over at halftime.)FriarJoe wrote:Mission has an argument for #3 if they finish a dominant 10-0. I have no issue with that. CC’s loss to MD means zero but the Cathedral Catholic loss does lower their esteem a bit. I’d much rather be a 6 seed than a 4 or 5 seed. The 4 or 5 seed has MD and a guaranteed beat down waiting for them in the second round. I think it’s clear that it will be hard for Servite or JSerra to drop out of the Top 8 unless they suffer a bad loss to OLu or SM. That is becoming very clear.
...but, honestly after #1 and #2, it's kind of irrelevant.
