Interesting! Archbold beats my Cats by 30 and gets beat at buzzer by OG at the Supreme Court and no where to be found!

Oh , my bad, Kaufman hit a jumper with 4 seconds to go to put them up one. Sorry not at buzzer. Archbold led by one with 4 seconds. so I guess it wasn't really that close!!!

Woops made another exaggerated statement. Archbold beat my Cats by 28, not 30! I'm so sorry that I tried to mislead anyone. You are right they are not that good! Sorry!

Listen, I know you are probably from O'town and I can see your allegiance....but, as Rocketman and Flounder once said....we will rank no team until it is their time...we never played favorites......with that being said....Ottoville does not belong in your top 10...especially when you are ranking all divisions....give it some thought!!!!! :whistling:

Actually they do, but i do appreciate your input, it's always welcome. They battled right to the end with a very good Elida team. And no, definitely not from that area.

Actually......you are polling from your heart... :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: ...PG will spank them!!!!

I watched Elida play Ottoville. Ottoville is a very good team and will only get better with their two freshmen gaining experience. I know PG is a great team also, just donít see them ďSpankingĒ Ottoville.

Ottoville has beaten Ft. Jennings, Crestview and Lincolnview while PG's best win is Kalida.
As always, rankings will change weekly.

You will see......I really see PG's one win over Kalida more to hang your hat on than those 3 wins by O'town that you mentioned!!!!!!!

Flounder Iím sure if you have shown your allegiance to the almighty Blue Jays a time or two on here so donít be foolin with baseball here. Lmao

Why do we get butt hurt over rankings? Idc who gives them on here, they are nothing but opinions. Nobody is what I would call an expert. Even the state rankings are an absolute joke so why even take anyone serious on here about rankings? Rankings are irrelevant and just something to talk about. Why they rank high school teams is beyond me. The only rankings that matter are tournament seeds.

Do remember his rankings do consist of the top LOCAL teams. So depending on what your definition of local means could determine if you agree or disagree with them. But my take on Ottoville so far is this. Are they better than what most people thought they would be? Ya I think so. I think they seem motivated more than ever. Defense is what concerns me the most about them. But I think they are a team that could make some noise in the tournament. Iím not sure they are better than PG at this moment but to say PG will blow them away is a bit premature even for someone like you flounder 😉

Ottoville beat McComb 55-49. Very tough games coming up: at Minster, at PG, MC at home. They have to lower the T/Overs & make more free throws in order to continue their success.

Sterio....
How is it going my leetle friend.....you know that I have nothing against the Big Green and actually I hope they do well except when they tangle with the Blue Birds....and you are right...rankings don't mean squat....hell, the last time we won state we were not even ranked.......but this lifer dude is ranking with his heart....Ottoville beat a very poor McComb team tonigh by 6...he!!, McComb will be lucky to win 5-6 games this season....but who cares....my legitimate point is this...he is ranking 4 divisions in one poll and for Ottoville to be ranked 6th,,,,,,just doesn't make sense.....it blows me away that Lima Senior isn't even ranked.....so tell me honestly....would Ottoville the 6th best team in the region beat the unranked Spartans on Ottoville's home floor even....you could even pull a couple of the Markward boys out of the stands and let them officiate........wouldn't matter......I say NO......sheeet, those Ottoville freshman would have just that running down their legs in a encounter with the Spartans.....I know ol lifer has a lot of pride, but maybe splitting up the divisions into seperate rankings might make more sense.......just a thought from ol Flounder!!!!!!

Well at this point we donít really know. Heck I said before the Elida game that if they can even just keep the game within 10 points thatís a win for them, but they were actually up by 10 and if not for an awful lazy 3rd quarter they beat Elida pretty easily. Plus Elida just beat Senior by 1 if I am correct so who knows? Iím not going to guarantee it but I wonít say it canít happen. Problem with Ottoville is there is too much inconsistency.

As far as the rankings. Iím never a huge fan of ranking teams with other divisions. Itís just unfair and may I say pointless? The higher divisions travel more plus the numbers and what not. Even though Iím totally against rankings, I do like how you flounder and rocketman make the nw Ohio teams by division even if i disagree with them lol. But as far as how he has them ranked, on their best days I can see them in the top 10 of his poll. But at times they definitely donít belong. Like I said consistency is important for them.

I said from the beginning that these rankings are the best local teams against their schedule they are playing. The 10 on my list are who I believe are doing the best in our area against the schedule they were given.

Wow......this really makes sense :wallbash: .........if all polls were like this everyone would have a legitimate bitch for their team to be number 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guys can sit there and criticize all you want, and trust me, I expected it. However, my top 10 right now has a combined record of 80-8 and is taking care of business against their schedule. Granted, some schedules are much easier than others, but these players aren't the one's that sit down and make those out. They have zero control over who they play and how tough their competition is. Most of the teams on this list would have 2-3 wins if they played Lima Senior's schedule, but they don't have to worry about that. Therefore, I'm not going to leave out a team that has 10 wins, despite the fact they haven't played great teams.
I'm sure people will continue to complain all season long, but that's what makes rankings fun in my opinion. I personally, think Stephen A. Smith is the worst sports journalist on TV today, but he earns a paycheck for whining and complaining about everything.


Wow come on here for the first time in a year....and i see the same ones still posting BS.
Ehh Don't worry about Flounder and rocketboy. They've always trolled others for rankings including mine back in the day of which were featured on other sites as well.

Just keep on keeping on. They want to discredit anyone for doing rankings b/c they used to think they had the best rankings in the state and felt no one else should have any.
But at least after all these years, they are still consistent and still posting about DSJ and PG. :pokey:

Thanks Captain, will do.

I consider the poles interesting, not accurate. Everybody knows Ottoville cannot compete with Lima Senior. They played a great game vs. Elida, still does not predict how they would do vs. other bigger schools. I think the polls are great. Something to see and think about. I love everybody's comments. Keep it up. Thank you.

Briny bear,
You're so full of poo it makes me sick. Starting back in '99 I partnered up with Johnstown Benny and the Flound on both boys and girls rankings......over on the old Huddle they were the most read, most accurate, most respected, and certainly the most informative of all the rankings......bar none
JB, Flounder and I would consistently thrash all the others in depth, knowledge, and common sense......You were like the kid who was always saying "look at me!"...... I appreciate your sticking up for the Baller, but the JB & Rocketman's were THE best boys rankings and the FLOUNDER & RM's girls rankings were not only followed by the Ohio "people in the know" but nationally by coaches and recruiters......zooooom
home to the "Flounder & Rocketman's" Girls HS rankings

They are just rankings people. Personally I donít care who you are on here unless you have the luxury of seeing every high school team play in the state on many occasions and pay attention to detail and not just the scoreboard then Iím not sure just how credible anyoneís rankings can be on here.
