: As we approach the last few days of the regular season, here is a shot at what City Open will look like on Saturday.

: Have tried to reason this out, but City always seems to do something crazy every year.

: So here we go...

: 1. Granada Hills - I like Fairfax here, but currently City has GH #1. Obviously this would change if Granada loses to ECR Friday.
: 2. Fairfax - Again, I would put them 1, but this is very likely where they end up. They will be 1 if ECR beats Granada on Friday.
: 3. El Camino - I think this is where they end up win or lose on Friday. If they lose, they should be ahead of Narbonne given they have a much tougher schedule. If they win, if I understand the tiebreakers, GH will go in as top team from West Valley due to them beating Lynwood while ECR lost to them.
: 4. Narbonne - League champion, but weak schedule. But they will get a home game. I think there is a big drop off after the top 3.
: 5. Eagle Rock - I would put Birmingham here, but because ER won their league, I think they end up here.
: 6. Carson - A disappointing year considering their two impact transfers. I have heard some people say they shouldn't make it, but they would destroy everyone in D1.
: 7. Birmingham - Very solid team, unfortunately they have to play Granada and ECR twice each and that messes with their record. If for some reason they get put in D1 they will be the favorite.
: 8. Westchester - I like them at 8 because not only did they lose to Birmingham, but this would avoid first round league match-up if Granada Hills is 1.

: Others: Venice, Legacy

: I think there is fluidity in the top 3 and bottom four, depending on what happens the rest of the week. Then it is what the committee wants to do. Hopefully whoever is on the committee has actually seen these teams play a couple of times.

: If anyone has any thoughts please share, always up for some positive discussion. But hoping for more than just "Team X is the best" and "Team Y is no good".

: Will try to update again Friday night or Saturday morning before the seedings come out.

That looks and sounds like good reasoning. However, this might be the year that the committee gets it right.

1. Fairfax-has wins over 3 of the top 8 teams(won division)
2. Granada Hills-beat ECR and won Nike TOC(won division)
3. Narbonne-has wins over 2 of the top 8(won division)
4. El Camino Real-beat Birmingham also win over Harvard West Lake)
5. Westchester-beat carson twice
6. Crenshaw- my dark horse undefeated(won division)
7. Carson-play tough schedule probably the scariest1st round opponent.
8. Birmingham- win over Westchester but four beatings in division still not sure about them in open.
