Uh, Turpin was undefeated last year at every level. New coach who knows? Woods has D1 talent but are totally out of control and will beat themselves in a lot of tight games.

if Massillon is a top 10 team, the rest of the state should just give up football

Massillon might not even be able to beat the other D2 teams in Stark County, much less secure a spot in the top 10 statewide. They're just too young, among other potential issues.

I think some of the "others mentioned" would beat many of the ones ranked. Also, Troy just beat Anderson the last time Anderson played a game. They were up 34-7 at one point until Troy just quit trying and they made it close at the end. Shouldn't be 5 spots higher.

Just wait and see...Anderson returns a ton from that team last year. Is 4 high for them? Probably for the preseason but their play on the field will speak for itself. Best class Anderson has had since the State Champ team 10 years ago.

I'd argue the 2009 team that lost to Elder was better, but I still agree that this is their best team since then, and it's not even close. Not a lot of teams return nearly the entire core of an offense that was already one of the best in the state the previous season. Defense has added a couple players and should be improved.

As long as the Anderson defense makes 2-3 stops a game, I don't think there's too many teams out there that will slow the offense down.

I think teams like Massillon get preseason votes each year simply due to name recognition.

WinstonSmith has a little shameless behaviour in the past
LaSalle may end up being a top team again, but I wouldn't necessarily count on it. 3rd coach in 4 years and lost a good amount of talent.

Turpin vs. Anderson

I think this will possibly be the game of the year in dII outside of Lasalle.

I think Turpin still matches up well against Anderson even with losing a ton of talent from last year. Turpin's secondary is slowed down Anderson O last year, and they return everyone from that secondary.

I am on board with Anderson being a serious threat in D2 this year, but they need to clean up D, and special teams to have a shot to beat the good teams in there league (Kings, Turpin).

I think Warren Harding at #6 may be a tad optimistic? They travel to Fawcett week one, what a venue for an opener..

Just out of curiosity how many D2 teams are located in Stark County this year?

I know they have a high powered offense I saw it live last year. It's just hard to imagine how they are ranked ahead of Troy, Kings, and Turpin and they lost to all of them just last year. I know it's a new year and last year isn't this year... just me thinking out loud.

It's pre-season unofficial rankings, someone's opinion, means absolutely nothing however D2 must not be that strong,I saw Troy and Dunbar last Friday at Troy and IMO Troy did not look good losing to Dunbar. I believe they lost too much in losing their running back and quarterback from last season. Dunbar should make the playoffs in D4 but they look very undisciplined but outscored Troy 16-0 for the comeback win after being down 20-12. Troy could be a playoff team in D2 but top 10?

I wouldn't read much into a scrimmage. They had backups in there a lot of the game and also some key players didn't suit up. 9 seems fair to me.

TJ05 you're a stand up guy and trust me I don't but they didn't have nine guys dressed when they were up 20-12 at the half and basically dominated the 1st half. They may win 9 games but they're not as good as they were last season and you shouldn't get dominated(2nd half) by Dunbar where everybody plays both ways and your "D2 and they're D4"!?!?

I agree they aren't as good right now. Also I didn't mean 9 players didn't play. I meant 9 is a fair ranking for them. I've seen them as high as 4 in some polls. I know it means nothing at all. Also, Dunbar is d4 but they're going to be good this year and they've got some dudes.
