I think at this point we've figured out that there are more than ten top-ten caliber teams. This being said, it would be impossible to put all these teams in the top ten.

Maybe what Crazy Puny Man means is how do you think that Munster (no offense to your school!) gets into the top 10 over Mounds View or some of the other really good schools from last year?

For one, I'm in Tennessee and B division, so I feel no bias. Maybe we should expand this to a top 15.

I don't see how being in TN/Div B or not makes bias, never was pointing that out (I can see that from your account, no worries). Most people have their bias with making this top 10, I'll make my own if/when that official top 10 thing comes around again on the site. What I meant was that those really good schools (Mounds View, WWPS, Camas, etc) have done quite well in the past. If you want to rank everyone through to the top 20 you can (is anyone against that?), but I think even if unexpected results can always be considered most people tend to go with safer predictions.

Alright, I guess I'm getting too nitpicky, and I didn't mean to start an argument by any means.

Yep, wasn't meaning to make an argument, sry if I said something weird. Most people have their own views about this, we'll see.

When all the teams are announced I want to see at least five people post a complete ranking of all 60 teams. There's your challenge. Do your research.

Oof.

Ranking through 20 would be interesting... 15-20 would be slightly difficult, IMO...
