GC schedule sets up pretty well, travel notwithstanding. Gilman should be less of a challenge than prior. SJC will have a ton of talent. Both of those games will pit new head coaches against one of the best in Milloy. They could easily go undefeated into the last game of the season vs. DM. They have talent all around - but do lack quality depth. They have two good scrimmages and an early game against a tougher than they get credit for Spalding outfit. They should be ready. If they stumble vs. Spalding...then we know they have issues. That being said, that may be too high of a national ranking. Outside of DM and SJC performing as they are "equipped", we will might not know how good they really are as those guys win on anybody's paper. They will beat Gonzaga - and if they beat SJC in their regular season match up - they lose to DM in the season final and get SJC in a rematch in the playoffs. Both will be different teams by November. Nobody knows what that game looks like right now.
DM ranking is about right.
GC is probably too high. But probably still in top 100.
Gonzaga is definately too high. They lost a lot from what I have read.
SJC is anybody's guess. But on paper probably higher than the GC and GZ. So it's up to what the new HC does. His resume would lead you to believe they will be much improved vs what we saw in prior years given the talent. The DM game will be a war.
No hate on anyone. #2, #3 and #4 are all closer than ever. Dont see any of them knocking #1 twice. Just how I see it before any pads.
