20 quality programs and the rest are mediocre at best?!? That statement is ridiculous. So other than 20 programs the talent level on LI is basically below average, as per the clown who posted it.
Once you get past the top programs, yes the talent level is average. Its not a slight on anyone, and there are talented kids all over LI but the programs as a whole are mediocre in comparison. Sorry you feel the need to resort to name calling because your reading comprehension skills and simple awareness skills are lacking. So let me ask you this, how do you think the 21st ranked team on your "list" would fair against the top teams from other regions? If we are so superior your #21 ranked team should be able to beat or compete with the top ranked teams from CT, NJ, Upstate, yes?
