Happy Halloween! I've been having nightmares trying to sort out all these football teams with all of these crazy upsets lately. Just kidding, doing these rankings has been as fun as getting a full-size candy bar while trick or treating. Seriously though, a lot of these spots could be disputed, from No. 1 all the way down to No. 10, good arguments could be made for any team to rise or fall. So when sorting things out I have to favor recent results over what happened earlier in the season, I have to look at what the final records are likely to be, etc. It's not as simple as just saying: Centennial beat Reservoir and Hammond beat River Hill so they get the better ranking.
