Dave Campbell's 2008 Texas Football 6-Man

The "preseason" rankings are out. For what it is worth. Jawing is about all it is worth Fans can say WOW look at us, we are ranked! Or what is going on? We're not even mentioned.

The information regarding Six-Man is written by a gent named Granger Huntress. If you follow Six-Man in Texas you know Granger is a legend. He has done as much as anyone for the sport. I glad to call him a friend. I hope the friend thing is mutual. I certainly am not a legend. When you read the magazine or read the rankings elsewhere, you don't have to agree with them. Granger has done his homework. He might not make straight A's but he has studied things. Let's take a look at this year's preseason rankings.

Division I
1. Calvert
2. Turkey Valley
3. Strawn
4. Richland Springs
5. Fort Davis
6. Follett
7. Abbott
8. Garden City
9. Milford
10.Vernon Northside

Division II
1. Woodson
2. Motley County
3. Highland
4. Zephyr
5. Borden County
6. Sanderson
7. Rule
8. Sierra Blanca
9. Sidney

Interesting! The last couple of seasons appeared to be decided even before the first week of the season. That was especially true in Division I. It appears the landscape may have changed. Again, we are talking preseason rankings and that is the idea. Get people talking.
