: : Now we beat Cajon twice. Do we get ranked ahead of them in the polls next week!?
: Who is this? Oh Yucaipa...okay. Hmmmmm...what has Yucaipa ever done basketball wise? Let me think nothing. This is probably Yucaipa's first league championship in a long time if not ever. So congrats on that. Also congrats on beating Cajon.
: Now, I wish you parents would understand some things and just let things be. But you come on here and start spouting off about things. Yes Yucaipa should be ranked ahead of Cajon. I agree with you on that but as a coach that votes I don't know anything about Yucaipa and also Yucaipa has never done anything, so it is hard for coaches to give someone the benefit of the doubt. I don't know who else Yucaipa beat nor do I care but if Yucaipa scheduled down then they deserve to be ranked low. If Cajon and other teams have a stronger strength of schedule than Yucaipa that could be a factor on why coaches have Yucaipa ranked where they are. Coaches are usually traditionalist so they will try to keep teams up if they can. Also coaches like to vote for their friends too and help each other out. But Cajon has a new coach it can't be that.
: But here is the good news. Yucaipa will be ranked ahead of Cajon in the playoffs. A team that finishes 1st place can't be seeded behind a 2nd place team. So more than likely Yucaipa and Cajon will flip spots. Even better news is that these rankings really aren't followed or used when it comes to seeding playoffs. So it doesn't really matter where you are ranked because only the top 8 teams really are seeded properly everyone else gets moved around. So bitching about being ranked low or behind someone really doesn't matter or help. But if it makes you feel better than bitch away.
If the Coaches can’t rank the teams correctly then they shouldn’t be allowed to rank teams.
