WNC Ranking

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After three weeks of play, we have a better idea of how teams actually are. Some are surprising, some are underachieving and some are right where you expect them to be. I personally prefer to rank the public schools in WNC but since Christ School has been playing public schools for a couple of years I guess I have to rank them.

I am sure this will raise some eyebrows and some tempers but here goes.

1.      Christ School      2-0

2.      Murphy                3-0

3.      Heritage              2-0

4.      Mitchell               3-0

5.      AC Reynolds       1-2

6.      Robbinsville        3-0

7.      W. Henderson    3-0

8.      Swain                   3-0

9.      N. Buncombe     3-0

10.   Hendersonville   2-1

11.   Pisgah                  2-1

12.   Polk                      3-0

13.   Brevard                2-1

14.   Avery                    2-1

15.   Smoky Mtn         1-2

16.   Asheville              1-2

17.   Owen                   1-1

18.   Hayesville           2-1

19. E. Henderson        1-2

20.McDowell            1-2

21. Enka                     1-2

22.   Rosman               1-2

23.  Andrews            1-1

24.  Tuscola                0-2

25.   N. Henderson    0-2

26.   Erwin                    0-3

27.   Franklin                0-3

28.   TC Roberson       0-3

29.   Madison              0-3

30.   Cherokee             0-3

Time will tell on some of these, Paul I don't think you included Asheville on this list.  I'd have Tuscola a little higher, they are definitely better than Rosman, McDowell and Enka.  Erwin has fallen hard but they've also played three good teams.  I'd bump Reynolds to #2 and move everyone down a slot.  They don't have a loss to hang their head about. I added Asheville School since we are including CS. 

1.CS

2. ACR

3. Murphy

4. Heritage

5. Mitchell

6. Robbinsville

7. W. Henderson

8. Hendersonville

9. Asheville

10. Swain

11. NB

12. Pisgah

13. Brevard

14. Polk

15. Smoky Mtn

16. Owen

17. Avery

18. Hayesville

19. Andrews

20. East Henderson

21. Asheville School

22. Franklin

23. Tuscola

24. Erwin

25. TC

26. McDowell

27. Enka

28. North Henderson

29. Rosman

30. Cherokee

31. Madison

Whats Murphy done for you to rank them so high. They barely beat your #11 and#26. 

 

 

Pisgah has a good defense and it was the first game of the year. Franklin always plays them tough.  Defending champs still means a little bit.

Tuscola's offense is abysmal. They had 4 first downs and 47 total yards against Pisgah. Enka, Rosman and McDowell also have won a game. Are they a better team? We will see, but right now Tuscola has to win or it could be a very long season.

These rankings are really in three groups. The top 13-15, the 16-23 group and the teams with no wins. Movement will come for some of these teams but it will take time.

Yes ACR is good and that's why they are #5. But they lost two games, yes to very good teams, but why does a 37-point loss mean less than a 33-point loss? Does getting blown out by a 2A school have less meaning than getting blown out by a 1A school? Reynolds is good, but the four teams ahead of them are playing better right now.

Its easy to critique others work. The list looks pretty good to me except. Any team that has played less games should not be on the top 10 or so. I think Mtn. Heritage has only played 2 games. Anybody can lose a game anytime. They may be the best team in the state. But giving credit for games yet to be played isn't a fair comparison for any team. West Henderson and North Buncombe have both earned their spot and surprised so far. Their match-up should be a good one.

Murphy very overrated ,don't belong in top 10 this season .

Yep, nothing to see there. Don't even know why anyone would mention Murphy what have they or there coach ever done to deserve any respect?  Geez man take your smack talk somewhere else.

Not sure what it says when most everyone has 5 1a schools in the top 15. I know there are several 1a schools in WNC but the other schools need to step up. 

Just hope Mitchell can maintain for a few more years, I have enjoyed the ride.

 

Go Mountaineers

Paul, I'm sorry to say that my Wildcats are 1-1 not 2-0 so Titanman's  rankings are probably more accurate.

Your right. I'll reflect that in my rankings. Thanks for noticing that.

Right now I'd have Murphy #5 too, young team still finding their way in some spots and adjusting to losing one of their best lineman for the year. 

If 'Dogs can give Christ School a real game though.. who knows.
