  • Hawk Yeah!

    SOAR! ……..quietly

  • TheTbone

    Does she not look at the Class Rankings at all, CG is ahead of Naz!!!! She must be a moron.

  • Public Powerhouses

    Cary-Grove should be Number 5 instead of Loyola.

  • beer-run

    Bolingrook gets “ranked” after a loss to the #7 team. Cary loses to the #1 team by 1…on the road…and still no respect.

  • Rhino70

    Lyons is a good team. Always is. But I’ve seen it before where Lyons (or HC and OPRF in previous years) are sitting nice in the standings until GW gets untracked and plays to their potential. GW has that really brutal 3 game gauntlet agains HC, LT and OPRF. If they pass that test (and that’s not going to be easy), then the MS loss would be a strange anomaly. Should be a great challenge for GW and usually they rise to challenges.

    So help me understand this. CG holds #2 PR to 7 points in week one and they put up 52 on a Jacobs team that lost to #16 Huntley 30-27. Obviously the author of this ranking has absolutely no respect for CG. I’m betting that a win over Huntley this weekend still doesn’t crack her top 25.

      I think Beth believes Cary – Grove is in Wisconsin.

      • Greatgig13

        She’s probably thinking CG will meet PR in the playoffs and lose so what’s the point in ranking them.

    • TruthBeTold

      I said the same thing in a Week 2 reply. I live in St. Charles and I would take Cary-Grove straight up over either one of the St. Charles teams. Beth will have to own up to this sooner or later.
