: : : : : What y'all thoughts on the teams in the open division watchlist?
: : : : Antelope Valley just made the list
: : : Mark Keppel is on the Open List, but aren't ranked anywhere in any division. Which division are they?? 1AA, 1A, 2AA or 2A???
: : : I know they just beat Fairmont Prep last Saturday.
: : Keppel is in Division 1AA
: Keppel is a good team but not an Open Team this year. No true senior leaders and their PG is out for the season with a knee injury. They will probably struggle in the 1AA division, but that's the price you pay for success in the prior years.
"but that's the price you pay for success in the prior years"
And there is the flaw in the system yet again.
Just because you were good the last 1, 2, 3 years doesn't mean you are at same level now.
Somehow, adjustments need to be made for graduation, transfers (in or out), etc.
Nothing you can do about injuries.
But the other stuff - not fair to make current team suffer for prior teams success when they all leave. Current players may not even have been on varsity.
This will come up in the more and more in the next year or two.
Not sure what the answer is, but it needs to be addressed.
