    Sounds like Drake. Anyone ranked from Iowa in the Preps?

    That seems like a nice story. Great for a smaller town to have something to root for during these long Winter months.

    I hope that Wes can come in and be an impact player. If not, then I hope he can redshirt, and get stronger.

    Re: Fremont Bergan ranked 2nd in State of NE

    Well, considering all of the outstanding teams across the nation, to see City High and Ames both in the Top 20 is truly amazing... but trying to rank high school teams nationally? ridiculous in my opinion. This isn't a slam on Iowa kids or Bergan or whoever, just the whole concept of ranking thousands of high schools nationwide bewilders me. Maybe have a national tournament in may with each states largest classification state champs? that would be kind of a cool tourney.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I could not agree more. How many HS BB teams are there in the USA? No way to rank them.

    However, I can give you an even more ridiculous ranking...I had a guy tell me that his kid's Under 14 Baseball team was third in the country last year...what a joke...so many under 14 teams in the US under so many governing bodies and this guy thinks his kid's team in the third best in the country due to some "ranking"...now that is ridiculous!

    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I agree, The rankings don't mean anything nationally, but it is fun when it is your team. I am not even sure the ranking system they use even means that much within the state.

    how are team rankings a farce and nonsense yet

    player ratings and stars are sacred symbols to be worshiped and are the law?
