I don't think st joes is a better team than bpt central.ridgefield beats staples by a field goal this week,and bethel mite give pomperaug a game.also by end of season the elite crown will stay in the fciac.

the growing pains for masuk's defense are obvious. i think theyll start playing much better as time goes on. i think we all are hopin on both masuk and pomperaug to make it to the swc championship game.

No love for Cheshire S.P.B.,or should I say no respect!You know better than I do.The GAELS suffer from weak coaching and trying to play both sides of the field.They are a running team that is too spread-out.New Caanan and Greenwich are 2 of the best coached teams in the state,and it shows-off thier best players talent with great play-calling.Hamden is a big-boy team that will push you around on both sides of the ball.A strong and fast team that will tire you out by the half.I can see why they are ranked so high.ST.JOE is good and the praying sure can't hurt,but elite eight???Once again S.P.B.,YOU KNOW BETTER THAN ME!

How can Masuk be only 8, how many times does Masuk have to keep getting wins to finally get a little respect? Plus how does Pomgeraug surge all the way to 5, especially infront of Ansonia and St. Joes? They haven't really played anyone yet. Any chance of a recount for ballots in these rankings, I feel like it's becoming as bad as the BCS in College Football.

Hey SPB, real good elite 8. I think both St Joe's and Ansonia deserve the rating. They are S division teams that beat MM and L division teams. And they looked great on both sides of the ball getting their wins. Winning in tougher divisions is important.

But how did you leave out Wilbur Cross, just makes no sense. This is an L division team that beat 2 LL divisions team. I am trying so hard not to mention "you know who". But where's the logic in putting a L division team in the Elite 8 when it beat 2 S divisions schools. And with an average defense.

Looking forward to the WC / Cheshire game, should be a battle.

St. Joes is a little overrated I think. By a little I mean very. St. Joes is the same every year. Start off good vs. ok teams and everyone is high on them. Soon enough they'll get upset by Danbury or someone like that, lose to all the good teams on their scehdule and not make to playoffs.

I agree with Guy on St Joe's it's the same thing every year but no one seems to remember that - it's pretty pathetic!
