random deafsports thoughts

question from a coach:
Does DeafDigest Sports rank teams in #1, #2, #3, #4, etc order
in basketball?

This also applies to football and volleyball.

reply from DeafDigest Sports editor:

No.

Stopped doing it years ago because many schools took these
fun ratings too seriously! One athlete from one school
mailbombed DeafDigest Sports editor, upset at being
“outranked” by another school.
