It's sad that the AP only cares about schools and players that are in or around the big cities.
Always remember the 25th of December(for more then 1 reason)

Neg the hell out of me for this I don't care. But I guarantee its harder to avg 20 ppg on the D1 level than the D4 level. That is all.

This isn't a discussion about which division is better. If D4 could hang with D1, then there would be no need for divisions.

All I'm saying is that the people that do average 20 ppg deserve recognition because even though they are in a smaller division, it is impossible to prove (unless putting them into a D1 game or atmosphere against D1 players) how well they would actually do.

Basically the AP seems to think small schools don't deserve respect, and it's getting rediculous.

I don't think its respect but more of value of accomplishment. I am guessing there opinion is that they should reward the higher division player based on similar numbers. This shouldn't matter but maybe thats how they do it. Also, D1 guys are likely to get more exposure and this could lead to a higher placement on lists. It's not like they are forgetting Tillema or Christopherson, two great players. I'm not saying its right to take the higher division player over the lower division player because they may be just as talented, but accomplishments at the D1 level are probably taken as more credible for all-state recognition that similar numbers at the lower levels.

...and you basically summed up my argument with that paragraph. []

This is why I really like some of the changes in the coaches all - state list this year. It may need a little tweeking but listing divisions was a home run.
