Fed block vote ^^^ haha

Massillon and Hoover should be a great match up now. Massillon trending up, Hoover seems to have flattened out.

If Massillon beats Hoover, I will be really surprised.

Lake whooped Massillon and beat Hoover twice this year I'm not really following your rankings. And Hoover also has beaten Massillon. Just curious of to why you have Massillon so high? Lol

1. Jackson
2. Hoover
3. Lake
4. Allliance
5. Massillon

Because I did them today, not weeks ago when those games occurred. Each season has its ebbs and flows. Massillon trending up the last 10 games, and I think they would beat Lake or Alliance right now. I think Hoover may have peaked too early.

Just my opinion. Stay calm. lol

I would be a little surprised, not shocked. I would call it a mild upset at this point. Blackledge still not at full strength. Massillon is a little more athletic. A healthy Blackledge would expose Massillon on the inside. Without that, its a close call IMO. If Blackledge is better, Hoover wins.

I am calm I'm just asking for facts of why Massillon is number 2 that's all. They lost 5 of their last 6 regular season games. That's why I'm confused. I don't really see how they are trending up?

Judging by your reaction his rankings did what they were intended to do.

I don't know how to tell you any more clearly. An idiot on another thread asked me if I felt bad about saying Massillon was playing poorly two months ago. Uh, no - they were playing poorly.

Polls are current, they are a snapshot of recent activity and performance. Massillon is playing their best ball of the season because they are healthy and their new coach has identified what works best for this group. If they play their next game like they played the second half of their last game, the Hoover game will be close.

Honestly - I think you are over-reacting simply because your team is ranked below others. Guess what - if Massillon loses and Lake wins your team will move up. See how that works?

Ummm are you closely related to BigIdiot? They aren't ranked below others. Your rankings do not mean anything other than your moronic thinking and opinion. Massillon plays one good game out of 7 and all the sudden they are trending up, OK, good thinking.

I think they might be brothers. 2sense, I think you're the one that needs to stay calm since you're the one throwing insults around and I'm the one simply asking for an explanation. Your rankings don't mean anything at all, and frankly Lake already has won the head to head by nearly 30 points. If you think Massillon has made up a 30 point difference on Lake based off of one half of basketball then you should just give up being a sports fan. Clearly to you one half of basketball is more important to you than losing 5 of your last 6 games.

You guys give him exactly what he wants, a response.

Simply make up your own top five and post it, end of story.

I ask myself that often also. I just hope that the way that some act on here, is not the way that they act in their real lives. That would be sad.

Lol at no point this year was Massillon the 2nd or 3rd best team.
And Alliance is even worse.

Just as I predicted, Hoover with a healthy Blackledge was the difference. The question now is can they beat Jackson on a neutral court.

You may want to ponder the phrase "tournament edition".

Are your Vikes going to pull off the upset?

i think its an even game and either team can win...that type of game doesn't lead to an upset.

Never heard of a slight favorite or a mild upset? Two teams can be close but there is still a favorite. Very very rare that the two teams are actually even.

I think most unbiased observers would think Jax was a slight favorite.

you are right that most games have one team perceived as the favorite team and i have no doubt Jackson is that team.

that being said i dont consider it an upset if the 5 point underdog wins.
