    Just to let you know Westside has beat Wyoming East 2 out of 3 times this year and you still have them ranked ahead of Westside. Don't understand your thinking.

      Hey Barry - thanks for the comment. However, no human element/thinking at all to these rankings. It's all computer rankings with numbers and strength of schedule. But there are always some areas where it doesn't come out perfect, like you mentioned above.
