Curious who was polled for Eastern Maine Sports to arrive at their top 6. Windham has a 1st and 2nd team all league player back and they do not make the top six? How valid is this poll? They also have an all rookie team player.

I was a little curious myself how Cheverus was in there, and Windham wasn't. Both of these teams played in Hermon a couple weeks ago, and understand it's only preseason, but in my opinion, Windham has a much stronger squad. I believe you saw a couple of those games Coach Parker as well, I was impressed with Windham's team. Best of Luck to all the teams!

Polls are opinions. Most everyone has an opinion. Mean nothing in the real scheme of things. Best of luck to the Rams Coach.

Coach Parker: I am just as curious as you are. Like hoopsisme stated in his post. POLLS are just opinions and opinions are like noses everyone has one.

Pollsters didn't take into consideration the following.
1. Flemings transfer from OH to Bangor
2. How young Cheverus is.
3. Deering weaker than usual
4. Coaching

Here's my AA North pre-season OPINION POLL

1.Portland
2. EL
3. Bangor
3. Windham
5. Deering
6.Oxford Hills
7. Cheverus
8. Lewiston

I don't like the fact that Bangor does not play all 7 of the other North AA teams home and away. Only play North AA's Portland, Cheverus and Deering once and play South AA Thornton once . They play AA North Lewiston, EL, Windham and Oxford Hills twice home and away.

They play local 2 A North Brewer and Hampden home and away. and play A North Skowhegan and Nokomis once each.

Good luck coach starting this weekend with your opener at home vs. Lewiston.

Sent an email out to all coaches or at least AD’s. Didn’t get as much input from a few classes until after the fact. Good luck to all and yes these are just opinions. We will probably be wrong with class AA boys, but plenty of times in the past we have been correct, after many wondering why those were the picks. Good luck to all, only 3 days away.

1) Portland
2) Deering
3) Edward Little
4) Windham

There is a big drop-off after Portland however. They should easily win their third straight AA title.

Deering isn't that that good but might still be the second best team in the state. The level of basketball has significantly fallen in the last 10-20 years.
