    LOL this site is something else, Staples is NOT 6-0 they lost to Masuk…and you have Greenwich beating Staples and Staples beating Greenwich. Can someone at least get the records right before the “top 10″ are voted on…

    • Not a Joke says

      Don’t you suppose that the records were correct when the poll was taken and that more games were played between then and when the results were tabulated? Relax, OK?

    • Not a Joke says

      Why does it matter? Mid-season rankings are subjective. What matters is who wins the league and CIAC tournaments.

      • Henry ChisholmHenry Chisholm says

        Very true, and it’s a long year. However, it is nice to know what the states writers, and some coaches, think. Also it’s fun for some people to bash the site and its writers, like joke does lol.

    Not bashing anyone…just think voters should be informed and know what teams have what records…those should be accurate, don’t you agree.
