    I kind of scratch my head seeing Bellarmine, Arch Mitty and Serra above Logan. I know that Del Oro loss is killing Logan, but Serra’s Biggest win is against Buhach Colony by a point. Same team that beat SRV by 4. SRV, who got shut out by Logan 35-0. Bells’ best win is over Mitty, and next to that they beat San Leandro in almost the same fashion (at most) as Logan did.

    But who of any significance has Logan beaten other than
    perhaps San Ramon (whose QB, Cameron Birse, at the time was still limping from the Folsom game beating)?
    Serra has two WCAL wins, and their 1 point squeaker over Buhach was 110 miles on the road, Thursday night, and against a team that played much tighter than against SRV (I saw both games).
    Perhaps one could make an arguement against Mitty, but the Monarchs have played a schedule, that it’s fair to say noticeably tougher than the Colts’, very tough.
    Bellarmine, to a smaller degree but in a tougher league, is BELLARMINE like DLS is DE LA SALLE.

    @schoolmarm

    are you really factoring in the travel and the fact they played on a thursday night? Logan traveled further past Sacramento and got themselves in OT. Barring that muffed PAT, Logan was never out of that game.

    Everything mentioned in that comment is all BUTs. I’ll give credit for the WCAL wins. And I know Logan’s schedule has turned out to be fairly weak. I’ll give you the SRV shut out as a something to pass on. But if you’re gonna tell me that bellarmine did equal damage against San leandro compared to logan and only back it up saying theyre in a tougher league with a tougher schedule, there should be no doubt that those two teams are interchangeable due to that common opponent.

    Some strong privates in schoolmarm’s top 25.

  • Prepfan

    No strong publics??? 7 of the top 10 D1 schools in NorCal are public per CalHi Sports.

  • http://aol BigJoe

    ok, so we’re in agreement that there should be no seperation betwwen church and state.

  • Prep Fan

    No relation to the Prepfan listed above. Schoolmarm’s ratings are the greater Bay Area whereas CalHi Sports is all of NorCal, so it’s not apples to apples. It’s no surprise that many private schools do well in athletics, especially in the CCS, where the WCAL schools dominate is just about every sport. In NCS D1 there is just one private school, which is “pretty good” at football, but the D3 and D4 privates also do quite well.

    Granada can go 5-5. They need to just have good playcalling. If they get the ball to Soltis a lot, that can help them go 5-5. Hopefully Matt Richards comes back from his injury. He doesn’t want to lose his scholarship.
