Just an FYI - That's the OHSBCA poll, not the AP poll.

Interesting. Tallmadge finished 18-5 and beat Jackson, the #1 team in D1 (their only loss I might add) and also beat Aurora, ranked in D1, yet didn't even get an "others" in D2. We will see how they fair against Field if they make it that far.

Kenny doesn't kiss voter butt. I kind of admire that.

Tallmadge looks like the real deal. Polar Bears are back to back final state poll champs with a total of 2 losses in the last 2 years. However, the Bears are after the real championship - it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

Coaches can choose to email all the coaches that are on the poll committee and tell them how good they are and ask them to vote for them. Technically the poll coaches are supposed to do their own legwork, but can also be lazy. It's also easy to vote purely on record. I think this is a reason Field is ranked and Tallmadge isn't. This is not to disrespect Field, but their schedule was weak. I don't know any local coach that believes Field will beat Tallmadge if they both make it to the district final.

I like that he hasn't begged for votes.

Gotcha. I wasn't aware that is how it works. I can't imagine being a coach and contacting other coaches to beg for votes for a poll. And to say Field's schedule was weak is the understatement of the year. Anything can happen, but I cannot see Field beating Tallmadge if they do meet.

I don't think he necessarily meant "begging", it's more like "providing info". It's not like statewide baseball scores get published in newspapers all around the state like basketball and football. I can assure you there are likely some D3 or D4 coaches on the Eastern edge of the state who have never heard of some of the teams in NW Ohio....and it goes the other way also. Yes, proven teams like Jackson, Moeller, etc can be ranked almost based on record alone...you know they play the best teams they can find and if they are 23-1 there is a really good chance they are one of the top 2 or 3 in the state. Now put some small town western Ohio team at 23-1 and I can't imagine that everyone would agree that they are better than a Newark Catholic team that may be 17-8 (just using NC as an example)....but how would you know....they don't play nearly the same caliber schedule.

Refreshing to see a team that lets their play do the talking. The way all sports and teams should be.
