Is Class AAAAA stronger than AAAAAA? When comparing top-10 teams, the Maxwell Ratings favors the lower classification. Using those power ratings, AAAAA would be favored in all 10 matchups if the two classes played crossover games (i.e., No. 1 vs. No. 1, No. 2 vs. No. 2, etc.). Is AAAAA that good, or is AAAAAA having a down year? Perhaps both. Northside of Warner Robins, ranked No. 3 in Maxwell's AAAAAA rankings as well as GHSF Daily's composite rankings, has lost to three lower-classification teams. Jones County and Warner Robins of AAAAA have two of those wins (Peach County of AAA has the other). And remember that Dutchtown beat Jones County last week. Here are the projected margins of victory on a neutral field if the two classes' top 10s faced off.
#1 - Rome vs. Lee County -4
#2 - Warner Robins vs. Creekview -9
#3 - Dutchtown vs. Northside -9
#4 - Buford vs. Coffee -11
#5 - Jones Co. vs. Valdosta -6
#6 - Stockbridge vs. Allatoona -5
#7 - Carrollton vs. Sequoyah -3
#8 - Wayne County vs. Douglas County -3
#9 - Ware Co; vs. Harrison -3
#10 - Kell vs. Dacula -1
