One of the first things we look at when we do playoff projections is the bubble, and the bubbles are taking shape in the first round of playoff projections this week.

Take a look below:

4A Playoffs

Last 3 In: Leesville Road (4-4, 2-3), Harding University (4-4, 2-3), South Mecklenburg (4-4, 2-3).

First 3 Out: South Central (4-4, 1-3), McDowell (4-5, 1-4), Purnell Swett (3-4, 0-2).

3A Playoffs

Last 3 In: South Johnston (3-5, 1-2), Central Cabarrus (3-5, 2-5; MP #54), East Rowan (3-5, 2-5; MP #60)

First 3 Out: Fred T. Foard (3-5, 1-4), Jesse Carson (3-5, 2-5; MP #63), North Henderson (3-5, 1-4), West Henderson (3-5, 1-4), West Iredell (3-5, 1-4)

2A Playoffs

Last 3 In: Mount Pleasant (4-4, 2-1; MP #39), Thomasville (4-4, 2-1; MP #63), Polk County (4-4, 2-2; MP #53), Bertie (4-4, 2-2; MP #57)

1A Playoffs

First 3 Out: Cape Hatteras (1-7, 1-3; MP #79), Starmount (1-7, 1-4), Albemarle (1-7, 1-5)

These numbers will change over the coming weeks as more results come in. Keep in mind some of the teams, especially in the east, are a game or two behind because of Hurricane Matthew. That is impacting some of the projections because of the differences in winning percentages. This will become clearer over the next week or two.
