    I REALLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW CMR COULD BE RATED HIGHER THAN BUTTE HIGH. WE PRETTY MUCH DOMINATED THEM IN OUR FIRSTGAME, ALTHOUGH WE HAVE HAD SOME DEFENSE ISSUES IN BILLINGS WE HAVE DOMINATED ALL OF THE TEAMS RANKED ABOVE US WHEN WE PLAYED THEM. MAYBE IT IS GOOD FOR US NOT TO BE RANKED 1 SOMETIMES IT IS A CURSE!

    It’s all about the chase, Ron. Sometimes it’s better to be the hunter, than the hunted.

    But I agree, I think BHS should be ranked higher than CMR.

    Agree Mr.Collins it’s pretty much a three way tie. CMR beat Capital which was obviously way overrated but that’s when they shot up the poll. The head to head win should count for more though.

    The loss to Skyview wouldnt count that as bad. Weather is the great equalizer and had to favor the Falcons that day. Probably 120 degrees on the turf, at the worst possible time of the day.
