I don't think Long Beach Poly is on anyone's national Top 25 list.

Maxpreps Excellent 25 has LB Poly 10th unbelievably. That's probably more ridiculous than JSerra at 24 in the other poll.

Is that the Excellent 25 of Los Angeles County?

I don't know what's up with Maxpreps. Their Composite rankings has STA #9. One of those is what they call Excellent 25 rankings and has STA at #5. And then they have what they call Computer ranking which doesn't even rank em. I saw where they have what they call National ranking and they're at #44. Huh? I don't think this first poll has a whole lot of credibility. I would say there's gonna be a lot of rearranging after the first week.

With the exception of Bishop Gorman, the poll cited above is still looking good at the top end, anyway. After three weeks it looks like most national polls have reached a semi-consensus top 5 of a couple of Florida schools, a couple of CA schools and IMG, which isn't a school at all.

Mater Dei's national title hopes have taken a big hit through no fault of their own... all of their preseason opponents have lost games already, as well as Bosco. Even if MD wins out (not a sure thing by any means), if IMG does as well they will probably get the nod...and as far as I know IMG is done after the regular season (no playoffs)

Maxpreps' new computer poll has four local teams in the national top 10 - MD, SJB, CC, and LB Poly...and Mission Viejo at #25...Friday night Poly vs. MV at Veterans Stadium...

FYI On the Calpreps/Maxpreps computer poll Mater Dei finally leapfrogged IMG this week into the #1 spot, that makes them the consensus #1...now all they have to do is win out :hide:

Wrong. While MD was beating #118 OLu by 30, IMG was idle and yet managed to climb back into the #1 spot by 0.1 rating points in the computer poll, go figure. While MD has been rolling through the Trinity League, IMG has played just once since Oct. 6...

To be fair IMG has played...wait, why the hell is IMG being compared to actual high school teams (even MD which barely qualifies anymore)? If any of these national rankings were legit, they would immediately drop IMG. They have no league, no championships, play 9 or 10 games a year, and don’t have to follow any version of state or league rules.

These polls need to stop legitimizing IMG and they will eventually go away.

The only way to stop legitimizing IMG is for high schools to stop scheduling them.

I can't understand why anybody does, unless IMG promises some sort of substantial payoff for playing them.

The Wall Street Journal had an interesting article about them within the last few days but you have to be a subscriber to read it. Tuition is $75,000 and they must have the most bizarre collection of parents in the country .................................Luca
