So a local writer is already looking at the statewide polls and bemoaning the fact that Martinsburg is ranked number 2 in the first week's poll.  Really??  Can we not wait a few weeks before speculating about a bias against the Eastern Panhandle?

With the George Washington loss Friday night (without Ryan Switzer) Martinsburg will clearly ascend to number one and all will be right with the world.  Frankly, I would not mind waiting until week 4 before rankngs come out given the task of trying to rank teams who have only played one game.  That amounts to guess work in many instances, like the voters who must have guessed that Martinsburg cannot be expected to be as good as the previous two years due to graduation losses.  It may take a few games, but soon everyone across the state will realize that Coach Walker and Martinsburg have successfully reloaded and are primed for another title run.  At that point, we won't have to worry about any bias.  The best team in the state will be apparent to everyone.

Polls mean squat
I've always wondered why we care what a Charleston paper compiles as a poll in any sport. One of the few things the SSAC does right is its football ratings system, which makes sure playoff seeding is at least mostly logical. It renders the poll just a conversation piece.

Squat it is
And I agree to give the SSAC its due where it is due. Now that is a switch
