2nd Tier
Capital Blue
Elite Orange
Steps Blue

BBL Elite black
Pride Red

Top 5
M&D black
YJ Colbert/Thorn
Hero’s Green
TG black
CT Grizzlies



Being that M&D lost to your tier 2 selections (Capital Blue, Steps), I would called this skewed already. Plus SW beat M&D so I suppose they should be a top 5 above them too. Perhaps you did not see things as you thought.

M&D had a tough fall losing to Steps, Skywalkers, TG and YJ. If you listed it in order M&D ranked 1 is questionable

Hahahaha.
So you think when an unranked team beats a top 10 team that means they should jump into the top 25 in football, basketball or any sport. They are called upsets and they happen.
That was the first and only time M&D lost to steps or capital.
Great win for those teams but don’t mean they belong in top tier.
Does it?? I think outside that win just this fall steps lost to YJ, Monster and Ultimate CC.
Alabama lost to Auburn Saturday. Does that mean auburn is in the playoff picture?? Nope they have 3 losses.

notIntelligent response. Its called a pattern of bad loses. In the short fall season, your M&D team lost to, your perceived tier 2 teams. What about a lose to teams last year that you didn't even mention?

Duke was #1 in BB. Had a bad loss to SFA. So they dropped from the top rank. If they had 2 of those in back to back weekends, where would you put Duke BB then?

Like I said, not a logical response at all.

Next...

M&D has 4 losses in probably 7 years prior to the fall. Doesn’t drop them into 2nd tier.
Next yourself
M&D still the best.

M&D is still top tier, maybe just not clear #1. The top tier is probably bigger than just those you listed though, as parity seems to dominate among top teams. NXT and Capital Blue went to finals of Level Nine, so I think both could be considered top tier afterwards, although I don't know if you would have had them in it before. But when you look at what they did over the fall (NXT wins vs Skywalkers, Grizzlies, Ultimate CC, Capital Blue, BBL Elite; and Capital Blue wins vs M&D, Monsters, Salt City, BBL Elite, Mass Elite and only losses to Tier 1 teams), they probably go into the Tier 1 category too. So M&D's losses aren't bad loses, just loses to other Tier 1 teams. Which makes the point that Tier 1's are probably teams that beat each other, but then beat the other Tiers when they play them.

You bring up great points. So many nut job parents want to call their kids team #1, which is ridiculous. How about appreciate the talented teams out there and be happy that your kids are playing a sport that they love (hopefully). Enjoy the competitive spirit of the great organizations. Most of all what the next poster said “coaches recruit players not teams/organizations.”

First of all...4 losses in the last "7" (6) years is not even close to being true. And yeah...I get it was said in jest.

No one said that it drop M&D to 2nd tier. It was to respond to the lunacy of the tier system stated as M&D did lose to perceived 2nd tier teams. So don't get all protective and such. And at this time, M&D is not the best team. Fact...

No college recruiter ever cared what teams won how many games. The top players will all go to top schools for all these teams. That is all that matters. That is why we play club lacrosse to get seen.

Also, you jumped YJ up to #2 after a couple good games? They have no body of work. You did exactly what you are arguing against!
