Region 3AA has turned upside down; check the standings

What happened in Region 3AA last week?
What a Friday night! Where do we go from here?
Look at the standings after one week: Jefferson County 1-0 (OK, not upside down); Harlem 1-0; Metter 1-0; East Laurens 0-0; Dublin 0-1; SCHS 0-1; and Swainsboro 0-1. Three of the favored playoff teams are at the bottom. Is that upside down or what?
One thing that happened is for sure, I don’t have a clue about anything relative to this region do I? I have been exposed. Am I a fraud? Whatever the case, there is certainly no punditry here. The facts bear that out.
