The Scouting Guru’s mock draft for the Pac-5, Southeast, Mid-Valley is in, check it out

The Scouting Guru has been all over the San Gabriel Valley and beyond, and like always, he’s offered to share his thoughts, free of charge. Don’t hate, enjoy it for what it’s worth, which is one man’s opinion on the talent and teams in the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding areas.

The Scouting Guru Bracketology: Well, we’ve crunched the numbers – looked at the protocol that the playoff committee has to work with and here is out best estimate of what the area’s Divisions for the CIF-SS Toyota Football Playoffs look like (do you like that Thom Simmons?…).

Southeast Division

16 Automatic Bids
0 At Large Bids

Top Seeds

1) Charter Oak
2) South Hills
3) Schurr
4) Burbank

Top Bracket

(1) Charter Oak (Miramonte 1)
Muir (Pacific 4)

San Gabriel (Almont 2)
West Covina (San Antonio 2)

California (Del Rio 1)
Rowland (San Antonio 3)

(4) Burbank (Pacific 1)
El Rancho (Del Rio 3)/Alhambra (Almont 3)

Bottom Bracket

(3) Schurr (Almont 1)
Bonita (Miramonte 3)

Santa Fe (Del Rio 2)
Crescenta Valley (Pacific 3)

Burroughs (Pacific 2)
Diamond Ranch (Miramonte 2)

(2) South Hills (San Antonio 1)
El Rancho (Del Rio 3)/Alhambra (Almont 3)

Post note: It is a really tough projection to see what South Hills gets. Both El Rancho and Alhambra look very similar on paper and on the computer (El Rancho 12.6; Alhambra 10.6). If the committee decides to flip the West Covina vs. San Gabriel game with the Cal vs. Rowland game, then South Hills gets Alhambra. Order has been restored with the brackets in this division. Look for the committee also to strongly consider flipping the West Covina v. San Gabriel – Rowland vs. California game. The dynamics of the brackets doesn’t change.
