Unofficial Rankings B

Postby Unome » March 11th, 2016, 6:47 am

Since someone started this for Div C already; make predictions about team rankings for top 10 (or more if you're brave) here!

P.S. At this point, I have no idea how it'll go yet; there hasn't been any clear top teams like in previous years.

1. Daniel Wright
2. Solon
3. Meads Mill
4. Winston Churchill
5. Piedmont
6. Muscatel
7. Magsig
8. Ladue
9. Auburn
10. Marie Murphy

Maybe if I don't rank Beckendorff in the top ten they can win nationals again ;)

I'd say Auburn will be 10th-20th and Longfellow will place top 10 again (didn't both of their teams beat Solon at Kenston invite?)

I haven't seen anything about the Kenston invite, but Solon does seem a tad weaker this year (only got second at WSU and I think Tower Heights MS has been beating them in OH). I also just realized that Longfellow got 7th at nationals last year; they should definitely be here. Speaking of which, I think that Tower Heights MS should probably be up in the top 10 too

Not sure about Auburn, have they gotten worse?

Either way, my revised (and more serious) rankings are:

1. Daniel Wright
2. Solon
3. Piedmont
4. Winston Churchill
5. Beckendorff
6. Muscatel/Kraemer
7. Longfellow
8. Meads Mill
9. Marie Murphy
10. Tower Heights

I Just love how far off the predictions are every year. Ever since solon's winning streak at nationals ended rankings have been all over the place, especially in B. I'd be very surprised if anyone here just predicted the top 2 teams correctly.

I still kinda think Solon is going to win again. 152 at Nationals is pretty amazing. Idk if Daniel Wright would beat them at Nationals but I guess we'll see. On the other hand, Im confident Troy is winning Nationals again but below that I have zero clue.

Daniel Wright beat Solon handily at WSU, and I think they're going to be super motivated this year after doing poorly last year at nationals. Solon has been losing (I think) occasionally in Ohio, which makes me think that Solon has gotten a bit weaker and that other schools in Ohio, such as Tower Heights, have gotten a lot stronger. Of course, Solon could just be the Spurs, who completely destroy everyone in the playoffs while coasting through the regular season.

It's important to note that the scores at nationals are relative to the strength of the teams there - although Beckendorff got a lower score last year than they did the year before (194 vs 207 if I recall correctly), I don't think we were better; rather, I think the other teams (other than Solon of course) just got a bit worse.

Also yeah Troy's going to run away with first place in Division C at nationals lol. It's a contest for second place
