    Interesting mix. I've not come up with my own biased poll, but this one looks like at least some thought went into it. Not sure why they have Ashland so high vs. Ferris though. And Indy being top 7 jumped out at me. Can't wait for the games to support some rankings.. can't get here soon enough.

    Thanks for sharing.

    GV, Ferris and Ashland should all be in the top 10.

    That said, this is still light years better than the other one.

    This poll looks a little better. But the polls will make more since after the season is about 4 week into the season

    So you're thinking Ashland is top ten? Personally I haven't identified 10 better teams, yet, but I thought Ashland was losing a ton (so I'd put them somewhere in bottom top ten myself). But I have no idea as to what they are planning to fill those holes with. I suppose some of the same could be said about GV, though it looks like the holes there are being closed a bit.

    Ashland is basically at a point like GV and Ferris where they reload, they don't rebuild. They're good enough where notable contributors graduating doesn't have that big of an effect on them anymore.

    Very true. All 3 teams always have good recruiting classes. So there’s always players ready to step in.

    Not much love for the champs. Did they lose some key guys?

    QB was a pretty big loss, I think.
