: : What y'all thoughts on the teams in the open division watchlist?
: Antelope Valley just made the list
First of all, too many teams on this list.
Personally, I think this is a good year to only have 12 teams, but we all know CIF won't pass on the $$$
A couple of examples of list being too big:
Antelope Valley? Not a chance. 1 win vs. a good team (Canyon - which isn't even ranked), no wins or even losses vs. elite teams (best loss is to Granada Hills). Sorry, not making it.
Village Christian? Uh, no. Good team in lower division. No big wins. Played two good teams - Fairfax and El Camino - and got blown out in both. Should win 4AA though.
Teams not in 1AA that aren't named Fairmont Prep. There are some really good teams in 1A and 2AA - for example Rosary beat Ventura the other day. I like Camarillo too. But just because they put it all together and beat an elite team, doesn't mean they should go to Open.
I would figure the list will shrink each week. And while parents get excited their kid's team is on the watch list, I bet most of their coaches want to no part of it.
