That 2nd team you cannot think of is Arlington - defending state champions DIV - that beat LB in the first BVC game this year.
As for your Arcadia comment - I, too, was high on them coming into this year. I really thought they would roll thru the BVC, but they have had some serious early season struggles in losing to Ada (gulp), and then to Leipsic in a close one. All of the sudden, Arcadia AND LB are needing some upsets in the BVC to get back into it. I gotta feeling Arcadia will be just fine in the end, but also cannot ignore McComb who has a nice blend of size and speed...Oh, and did I mention Arlington is currently on a 29 game winning streak???
The streak is over. They were beaten quite handily by Leipsic. Looks like McComb is sitting atop the BVC. A lot of games to go but who would have thought that LB, Arlington and Arcadia would all have a loss already?

After noticing yesterday that my buddy Rocketman decided it was time to post his finished product, I scrambled my packet of notes that I accumulated this past summer and made a attempt to rank my teams in some rational order......I never view Rocketman's first ranking, although it seems that we are never very far apart on our rankings.....I have always felt that both of our rankings are the original thoughts of each of us consisting of our own views towards all those teams we have followed over this past summer......I know those AP buffs never do such a thing......I even went to bed early last night and 'slept on it'.....just to make certain my decisions were correct......you see, there is a lot at stake here since the majority of our followers believe that....."we know girls high school basketball"

Well, all those fruitless hours spent in gyms this past summer will give our readers some form of proof that Rocketman and Flounder really do know their girls hoops..........during those hot summer months we devote most of our time evaluating a team's weakness and strengths..........while many of our friends and other pollsters are golfing and hitting the local taverns, we are in Rocketman's cherry 1986 Ford Fairlane buzzing down the interstate to take in more games........it is a never ending job, but we both feel that we owe it to our readers to give them the best product out there..... :hifive2:

I don't remember how many years we have been doing these polls......maybe 11, 12, or 13...I know I am close, but I still enjoy it....I especially enjoy when we have that certain reader who actually thinks our polls 'suck'...so to speak....I always love it when someone is being honest and gets right to the point.........so please, if you do feel this way, do not hesitate to let us know.......it probably won't change anything, but it will certainly aid us to know what we are dealing with :furious: ......

Well, just wanted to share a few things with our avid readers on what it is like to live a summer in our shoes.....now, it is time for my edition......as usual, feel free to post a reply and let us know how you feel about the polls.....and remember....these are the only accurate polls you will find all season.......so enjoy them!!!!!!!

Your poll is always well researched. You make an attempt to see the teams and players. The AP writers and broadcasters poll is a joke. They rarely see teams or players. Their votes are base on past success. They are out of touch. Thanks for the hard work and effort. I can't wait for next year.
