Northwest Missouri Champions!

Posted by nwmosports on October 5, 2009 at 11:16 AM

What if there was a NWMO area football championship and it wasn't settled by voting like college football but rather in a tournament like you have all likely seen in the movie the Hoosiers. What would happen?  Well, in this complete hypothetical, I came up with the 8 team field which would have conference champions from the GRC, MEC & KCI conferences and 5 at large teams. (Note, I had to project this of course on the conference champions).  Also, no matter what your schedule was, you had to have a winning record, otherwise, no dice.

 

The champions:

 

1) Maryville - MEC champions

2) Lawson - KCI champions

3) Hamilton - GRC champions

 

At large teams:

 

1) Chillicothe

2) Savannah

3) Platte County

4) Cameron
5) South Harrison

 

Computer Rankings from Maxpreps.com decided the seedings once in but champions got the first round home games and top 3 seeds.

 

1. Maryville - 32nd ranked.

2. Hamilton - 44th ranked.

3. Lawson - 72nd ranked.

4. Chillicothe - 34th ranked.

5. Cameron - 45th ranked.

6. Savannah - 73rd ranked.

7. Platte County - 97th ranked.

8. South Harrison - 114th ranked.

 

So, the 1st round matchups would go as follows:

 

South Harrison at Maryville - This game will actually happen in districts but in this dream world, it would be a 1st round game in the NW Tournament.

 

Platte County at Hamilton - Could Hamilton upset a huge school like Platte County?

 

Savannah at Lawson - What a game as two power running games would collide.

 

Cameron at Chillicothe - Another game that will take place in real life as the rivals would bang heads in the 1st round.

 

On Tuesday, I'll be back with the 1st round results but until then, feel free to muck it up in this fantasy world on the Forum!

Interesting topic, would be fun to just see these games. For what it is worth, I would see the games as follows:

Maryville would have a pretty easy 1st round game and be well rested heading into their 2nd game.

Call me crazy, but I will take Hamilton. Depth would hurt but the front 11 would match up fairly good and they would play with a chip on their shoulder.

I'll take Savannah in an upset on the road by a point.

Finally, I'll take Chilli in another low scoring win.

Any more projects on the Northwest Missouri Champions? I would see the finals as a rematch of Maryville and Savannah.

what happened to this website? How come it wasn't really updated after midseason? I thought it was an interesting idea, but then it just stopped.

Well did Lawson beat Plattsburg in the High School football game Friday night? Got a very muddy picture of grandson Tyler Kirkendoll but no results

Lawson won a battle by 1 point, 7-6 over Plattsburg. Lawson's defense was outstanding. By the end of the game it was hard to tell who was on what team as they were all completely covered in mud!

Effie,
Lawson won a battle over Plattsburg 7-6. Lawson's defense played outstanding. It was hard to tell who was on which team before it was over they were all completely covered in mud!!
