: : : : Legacy is in for sure probably at around 6.
: : : : I would flip Granada Hills and Fairfax only because they try to avoid league matchups as long as possible.
: : : : Flipping them means league matchups don't happen until finals.
: : : El co doesn't deserve to be a 2 seed. Fairfax would be them by 15. Every year el co gets ranked high and never wins, so overrated
: : You may be right but that's not the way it works.
: : Oh, and last year Elco was seeded 4 and made it to the finals by beating Fairfax (5) and Granada Hills (1).
: : So I guess it may not be "every year". LOL
: That was last year and we both know that Granada hills didn't deserve to be the number 1 and it took a last second shot to beat number 5 fax. Palisades/fax are clearly to two best teams. Let's see if the committee can finally get the seedlings right. 1) Palisades 2) fax 3) Granada 4) el co
As I said, you may be right.
But you said "every year Elco gets rated too high and never wins". Last year it wasn't the case.
Also, last year the seeding was 1. GH, 2. Legacy, 3. Pali, 4. Elco, 5. Fairfax.
It should have been 1. Pali, 2. Legacy, 3. Elco, 4. Granada Hills, 5. Fairfax
But Legacy over Pali due to head to head win - which will always be first consideration. At that point, GH snuck in because they had better resume than Legacy and won a much better league (got automatic entry over Elco due to better quality win). It's not right, but that's the way it works.
It happens in SS too. Did anyone really believe Oaks Christian was a 15 last year????
I am convinced City will keep the two sets of league rivals separate, so it will be
2. Elco/GH (whoever is determined as auto entry)
4. Elco/GH (whoever is #2 from West Valley)
And as an obvious Fairfax supporter, you should want that, as it keeps Pali away from Fairfax until finals.
