WTF? Montwood won. They beat Socorro. How does Montwood drop from #1 to #2? I don't freaking get it. Ok fine Pebble Hills beat Franklin but for Pebble Hills to skyrocket from #5 all the way to #1? Are you freaking kidding me? Franklin is weak this year!!!!! This is bocus on so many levels!!!!!!!!!!
#1 PEBBLE HILLS SPARTANS
#2 MONTWOOD RAMS
#3 EASTLAKE FALCONS
#4 PARKLAND MATADORS
#5 DEL VALLE CONQUISTADORES
#6 EL DORADO AZTECS
#7 CHAPIN HUSKIES
#8 BURGES MUSTANGS
#9 CORONADO THUNDERBIRDS
#10 ANDRESS EAGLES
Montwood is the true #1. They have played and beaten better teams.
Don't worry about the rankings, just focus on the next game eldorado.
Relax relax, EPG has some weird way of ranking that makes no sense at times. All that matters is who stands on top in the end. El Paso times and Dave Campbell had us ranked 5th or 6th and look at how wrong they've been. For what ever reason MHS dropped even though they haven't lost is beyond me, maybe they want to shake up the boards or maybe MHS didn't beat Socorro by enough points in their eyes who knows??
Keep eating Spartans! Haters gonna hate
Cats I agree,
All that matters is the Rams take one game at a time. No need to worry about the rankings by the gridiron, times, and Dave Campbell's.
I see the rankings differently. Being ranked #1 also means living up to that ranking. So the pressure is now on PHs to remain at the top. But for the Spartans it couldn't have happened at a better time because they have the T-Birds next on their schedule. A game that I predict will improve their record to 5-0. While MW has a tougher and rival game against ELD, who always plays like they have something to prove against the Rams! The Rams won last season's contest but the Aztecs have the momentum in their favor after a resounding victory against Eastwood.
Chapin rated to low. They beat Eastlake.
According to the Gridiron line Montwood was a 56 point favorite over Socorro but only won by 23 while Pebble Hills was a 7 point favorite over Franklin and won by 29 points. Not sure about giving the home team 5 points when it is two SISD schools playing each other at the SAC though.
So I guess based on that logic MW should have played their starters the entire game and beat Socorro by a minimum of 70 points to retain their #1 EPG ranking!
Not defending the logic, just saying why I think they dropped to #2. Montwood finishes the regular season 10-0, they will be ranked #1. Maybe do not be so worried about where your team is ranked the first of October?
EPG probably looked at this.
Montwood beat Midland 58-53
Franklin beat Midland 48-22
If Franklin beat Midland 48-22 and Pebble Hills beat Franklin 57-28 surely this played a role in there somewhere because although Pebble Hills has not played a out of town team Franklin has.
MONTWOOD RAMS SCHEDULE SO FAR
Frenship is 0-5 everyone is beating Frenship
Midland is 0-5 everyone is beating Midland
Burges is 3-1 burges wins have come against weak teams like Ysleta, Deming, and Bowie
Socorro is 0-5 everyone is beating Socorro
Deceiving Montwood 4-0 record. Montwood should be ranked somewhere between #3 and #6
