Here's the problem with pre-season polls - outside of maybe the top 5, it's all a guess.

Take Bishop Montgomery. I think they could easily be a Top 10 team by the end of the season (when Pepe is eligible), but not right now. And they were already upset by arguably just an average team.

And no way Fairfax should be on this list. If there is any City team besides Granada on the list it should be Narbonne.

If it was all for just discussion, that would be fine. But every poll is now based on this.

And it's the same with Maxpreps. They are supposedly working solely off raw numerical data - guess what, at the beginning of the season, there is no data. It's based on last year and reputation. And that is crazy in high school. You could graduate everyone and still be highly rated the next year for no reason. Or maybe you get a bunch of transfers and are suddenly really good - you may never make the poll.

For as messed up as the college football playoff process is, at least the one thing they get right is they don't have their first rankings until like week 5.
