The coaches had Division 5 pegged pretty well from Day 1.
8 of 10 teams from Week 1 are still there in Week 12 with Hilbert and Black Hawk being replaced by Marion and Fall River.
Just out of curiosity I checked the Div.5 poll for the FIRST week of the 2012 season and found that 7 of those 10 teams are in THIS week's poll. (Barneveld,Heritage Christian, Assumption, Newman, South Shore, Fall River, Owen-Withee)
Something to be said for consistently producing winning programs that are recognized statewide.
Yep, but I dont think Newman belongs there either. They are not the same as their past teams. The talent level just isnt there this year. They have a decent team, just not as strong as the past. I think their ranking is based largely off their past success. Assumption has a good, solid team and should do well again this year in the post season.
