2009 Section II football predictions: Class AA

I went through the Section II football master schedule and circled who I thought would be the winner of each game based on all of my preseason research. I've added up the totals, created a set of imaginary standings, figured out playoff pairings and played them through to determine a potential Super Bowl winner in each of the five classes in Section II.

Am I right? Am I wrong? Only time will tell, so feel free to sound off in the comments section in the meantime.

Class AA - 2009 projected regular season standings
Empire Division

Shenendehowa (5-0, 7-0)
Saratoga Springs (4-1, 5-2)
Ballston Spa (3-2, 5-2)
Albany (2-3, 3-4)
Christian Bros. Acad. (1-4, 2-5)
Guilderland (0-5, 1-6)

Liberty Division

Schenectady (4-1, 6-1)*
La Salle (4-1, 6-1)
Columbia (4-1, 5-2)
Shaker (2-3, 2-5)

Bethlehem (0-5, 0-7)

* Schenectady beats LSI in week 7, LSI beats Columbia in week 5. (real playoff positioning will be determined by quarter points)
