I was taking a look at the MaxPreps rankings out pure curiosity. I mean, I don't think there is much meaning behind ranking school teams nationally since there are so many variables state-to-state and these are, after all, high school kids.
But something really struck me as odd.http://www.maxpreps.com/polls/football/xcellent25.htm
MaxPreps has two different ranking systems. Both have Mater Dei at the top, but the second has St. John Bosco as number 3, while the first has them at number 10. I also noticed the first table has Allen Eagles (TX) as ranked number 4 while the second has them at 24.
Why such a wide disparity? I mean, it's odd that there is both some consistency at one and two and such wide disparity after that.
Both rankings were last update more than a week ago so there would likely be some shuffling after the games this past few days.
What does the wisdom of this crowd think?
