Question for Josh

Shut up LMAO

 

I actually dropped Chaminade to low 20s in my poll 

I can’t ask a question?  They lost and only fell one spot.  I need to know why because they are a pick em game and I know nothing about them other than they acquire players like the Yankees acquire  free agents

Sure you can

 

I was giving that response because of that little comment about me doing the rankings even though I have a much different placement in my rankings for Chaminade lol

They have some talent but are not as strong overall as the team last year if it helps

 

I actually picked Atlantic to beat Chaminade

Or did you pick them because they play Columbia.  I got to figure this out.

3 reasons for my pick

 

1 Atlantic is a larger school and should have depth advantage

 

2 Chaminade isn't as strong as team from last year

 

3 Atlantic may very well be strongest team in PBC and from what I saw of them they looked pretty damn good

I picked them too but have no idea why.

how does Chaminade stay ranked #7 when they lost to #22 this week?  Was somebody hurt?  Is columbiafan doing your rankings?

The reason I didn't drop them that much is because after looking at everything, it was very evident the officials played a significant role in the outcome of the game. I am not 100% sold on Carol City. If they lose to Atlantic that is certainly going to drop them further, but I can't fully justify a full drop after something that was not decided on the field. Carol City is struggling up and down and really I feel Chaminade-Madonna is the better team still.

Interesting.  I'd be interested to hear you elaborate on how the officials played a significant role in the outcome of the game.  

Admittedly, I don't have a dog in the fight, but I like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy.

Apparently, the video showed Chaminade-Madonna making a critical conversion on 4th down to keep their drive alive to potentially score points and the officials ruled that they didn't have enough. It is controversial and that is why I didn't want to knee jerk on moving them down many spots because of that and being a 1-point game.

Thanks for answering.  I didn’t see the game or hear what happened.  Sounds like  Chaminade wasn’t a lock to win even if they didn’t get hosed on a spot.  They can redeem themself this week.
