Videos, Stats and Thoughts
There's about 9-10 new videos on the main page of the site...36 total videos so far this season. The latest includes last night's game between Fenwick and Latin.
Also new to the site are the Strength of Schedule and Ratings Percentage Index listings. SOS probably is easier to understand since it is basically measuring who has played the more difficult schedule so far after six weeks of water polo. The RPI is a little more in-depth and attempts to balance out strength of schedule with quality wins, number of wins, etc. And depending on your outlook of things, you could pretty much use any of the rankings to determine how well your team is playing or at least provide a little better picture as to where each team stands. If you're not into statistics or anything, then you might not even care to look at the links. Anyways...
I was just randomly thinking at 1am what a shame it is that the boys and girls state tournaments have to be played on the same weekend at the same site. I'm pretty sure no other sport in high school has that same setup, and, I understand the logistics issues and such but, wouldn't it be much cooler to have 16 teams advance to state instead of 8? Then at least the teams that advance to the Sectional finals get to play on the main stage in front of everyone instead of just at their small sectional site where no one outside of the teams involved gets to watch them play in their last game. I'm not gonna get into seeding or ranking the teams, but last year, just like in years past, a couple of the top teams in state didn't get the chance to play at state because of the way the current system is set up. I know I get the chance to see pretty much everyone throughout the course of the regular season, but most people do not get that same opportunity.
