  1. Great web-site, except for a couple things. How could Centerline & Clintondale be ranked ahead of Cousino H.S.?? You can't even compare the schedules, and all 3 have the same record. Just asking.

  2. Thank you and I agree Cousino is better but those two are ahead because they both won and Cousino lost both games this week.

    Power rankings are based off the past week. If it was like a straight top 36 or whatever, I would have Cousino a little bit higher, they will comeback next week though.

  3. This site seems like it is waiting for East Deroit to fail(?two close wins?), so you can move them out of the top spot. East Detroit is better than Madison(?lost to AB by 25?). Madison's offense is based on one guy. Stop Damon, stop Madison. But, stopping Damon is not an easy task, he is a offensive wizard. But, ED has too many pieces. But, if it makes you feel better put ED at number 2. Since like you mention the only reason ED is #1 is because of number, and it is not your opinion that they are #1, just the numbers. Put them at #2, we will see who's still standing at the end of the year.

  4. Appreciate the feedback but thats not true, your twisting the words around. They had close wins and thats a fact. I think its pretty clear from the past and what I tweet during the week, that it no doubt ED is #1.

    Last week before Madison lost and they were both 9-0, I moved East Detroit to #1.

    Theres no question its ED, Madison and SC.

  5. I'm just messing with you, it really doesn't matter to me who is #1, now. It is more important how long they can continue getter better. The goal for ED should be nothing short of the Breslin Center. That would make for a great season, and hopefully get some of those guys recruited. The site is great, keep up the good work!!!

    P.S. I like Madison and ED, but not in that order, lol

  6. Ok I did not mean that in a rude way, it looks rude but I meant it as respectable as possible haha :)

    Thanks again for the feedback, I really do not get much of it yet but I like feedback positive/negative so its all good.

    But it really does not look like E.D. will leave #1 anytime soon, pretty tough scheduling and they keep winning.

    Who will be in their district do you know? probably - Rville, Mt Clemens, etc?
