    Great question, and obviously if McMahon had won, would they have gotten into the Top 10? All relative questions really, is NC #1 w/out Casione? And does Middletown deserve to drop from 3 or 4 to out?

    Again, all relative, I think as time goes on, we’ll know more.

    • ACL says

      I agree that dropping Middletown out from #3 is a bit harsh when you consider they lost on a field goal on the last play of the game, on the road, against a hot New London squad playing their first home game in almost a month. Middletown was due for a letdown, especially after the Farmington game.

      I also agree that its all relative.
