Laughing out loud. The “Model” is a farce! I am actually a Hawks hater but you have to give them their due. My model is called eye sight. One team beats all others, that’s all that needs to be known.

Hawks are at 3rd place, nothing wrong with that, it’s a respectable placement.

8 Laxachusetts Black (2026)
9 Express North Brameier (2026)
10 Madlax Capital (2026)

Rankings are less relevant after NAL. The Hawks proved they were #1 and Express proved it was #2. Those two spots shouldn't be debated. After that it is more up in the air with Sweetlax and Towerman followed by others. Crabs moving to #5 after being in the consolation bracket is odd.

You can take your subjective debate and put it where the sun don’t shine. There’s a reason they count all the games in the calculations for the rankings and not just a head to head match up between 2 teams. You realize it isn’t just wins, it’s the quality of the wins and by how much. Computer takes the data and analyzes it and spits out a rating. And before you go off, I realize the game is decided between the lines. But the ratings make for good banter and give tourney organizers a way to even out brackets. And they use the same type of systems in college football, basketball, hockey and just about every other sport. Yes, the number one ranked team doesn’t always win the national championship. But there has to be some merit to it seeing as much higher levels of sport are using it. At the least, it’s has to be better than Joe LI and Joe MD trying to determine which team “looked” superior. Let’s try to be a little objective, shall we?

Objective is easy... Win Baby Win... The winner is the top team no matter how little they win by.

Crabs are one year away from being # 1. This time next year most people will be in awe

No one is in awe of a team who has to continue to ask 25s to reclass in order to compete at the elite level. Not knocking the reclass BS, do what you have to do to be #1, simply stating your team is nothing without them so you should really sit down.

They seem to be struggling this summer, jumping to #1 may be a stretch.

Unless your son plays for Looneys, why do you care? And FYI they keep the scores up on Tourney App in case you want to track teams besides your own.

He had the answer before he asked the question.

Wins are for fun….my kid is there to develop his skills for high school.

We beat the team that won it and lost to them in OT semifinals.

This ^^^ Assuming teams are closely matched, it is tough to beat the same team twice in one weekend. That was the case here, and the go-ahead goal came in the final seconds. Both good teams, both played well.
