According to Joe Eitel’s website that is the official tracker of the OHSAA’s Harbin Ratings, this is how the SBAAC teams stack up.
D3 R11: Western Brown is currently 6th and likely a top 12 seed. Wilmington is likely eliminated.
D3 R12: New Richmond is in playoff limbo. Suffice to say, the Lions must win and get some help to advance. Goshen is likely eliminated.
D4 R16: Clinton-Massie is 5th and likely a top 8 seed meaning the Falcons will host in Week 1. Bethel-Tate is 6th and likely a top 8 seed as well. Batavia is likely eliminated.
D5 R20: Williamsburg is 11th and likely controls own destiny with a win. Blanchester is 13th and East Clinton 14th. Site says Wildcats and Astros both likely control their own destiny, so almost certainly a win or go home scenario at Barbour Memorial Field Friday night. Clermont Northeastern must win and get plenty of help.
D7 R28: Fayetteville is 8th and almost certainly will play Week 11 however a home game is still up in the air.
