    I know this ranking uses a formula, but I think it is pretty dead on from everything I have observed this year. I would have Collins at number one. Still think Simon Kenton may be a little high after their last loss. Gallatin County's schedule is too weak to warrant anything higher.

    I too think that Collins is worthy of your ranking and praise. Rankings are for keyboard jockeys to pretend they know something. But your comment about GC is uneducated at best, considering that GC beat the team that you think should be number one.

    I do recall that Collins beat Gallatin in the regional tourney last year and it was a barn bunner, and for the most part I think Gallatin is better than last year. Jon Jones in the regional tourney..good luck with that, they will be a hard out. For the LIT ratings, they go by margin of victory, don't count out of state wins, SOS, wins and losses of course. Not a big fan of them. Gallatin went down to Gatlingurg and that doesn't count for them, and Oldham went to Florida and those would not count for them as well.

    Gallatin' schedule has turned out to be weak. They play schools their size for the most part and schedule most of the bigger schools once. Two years ago playing Owen three times was brutal. Computer rankings have a bias toward harder schedules. Every game is different in high school. Match ups are a key. South Oldham presents match up problems for everyone, no true center - can your center guard a 3 point shooter. There are several teams that can win in the 8th. It will be an interesting tournament.

    I believe the Harvest Prep team Gallatin lost to would win the 8th by an easy spread. They were loaded.

    I don't think it's uneducated at all. That game was at the beginning of the year when Collins was missing some key football players and I believe one injured player. I try to watch everybody play in the 8th region and I don't feel like Gallatin is as good as some might have you believe. No disrespect to them at all. Just my opinion. I will say they have an excellent coach. Next three games will tell us where Gallatin stands. I wish them luck.
