People always seem to be slightly annoyed by those way-too-early preseason polls that media outlets present for differing college sports.
And yet, everyone looks at them. They’re too enticing not to. It’s like you want to get mad — or excited — over something you know means nothing. Personally, I think it’s fun to make predictions before you have any idea on how good teams are. Now, if you use those same preseason rankings and predictions to determine who earns certain berths in playoffs or bowl games, etc., that’s another issue entirely.
The same can be said for early-season records of high school baseball teams in northeast Ohio. Predicting which teams are legit and which ones are pretenders is next to impossible after a handful of games, and yet, again, it’s hard not to at least give people a glimpse into what could be.
The All-American Conference is an OHSAA-sanctioned league, created in 2008 as the result of the merger between the Trumbull Athletic Conference and the Metro Athletic Conference in Ohio. The league has 21 different member schools, with 17 sports offered throughout fall, winter and spring sports seasons.
