    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites.

    The 2017 season, was one to forget for Jesuit. A 2-9 record, meant the Jays produced back-to-back losing seasons. Something the guys on Banks Street just aren't used to. Close losses to rivals Rummel and Brother Martin, more experience on both sides of the ball, give the squad optimism for 2018. "We had a lot of young players that needed to grow up, and they went through and took their lumps last year. They've come back experienced. Certain things don't bother them. Their work e...more>>
