Tribune Super 35 Rankings: Glendora, Diamond Bar, Diamond Ranch round out the Top 5

10-4-13 DRANCH05
1. Bishop Amat (5-1) — No question the Lancers are No. 1 in the area, but to finish No. 1 in the Serra it must win games on the road like the one at Notre Dame. The Lancers are giving up way too many points and big plays and have struggled away from home in the Serra in recent years, which is why they’re 12-points underdogs at ND on CalPreps.
2. Chino Hills (4-1) – Fresh off a bye week Chino Hills should be fully prepared to face South Hills on Saturday at Covina District. South Hills has a punchers chance, but Chino Hills has emerged as a huge favorite to win the Sierra.
3. Glendora (5-0) — It’s been an unbelievably great start for the Tartans with wins over Charter Oak, South Hills, Bonita and Ayala, but they haven’t been dominant wins. They deserve being No. 3, but with Upland in town next, can they keep it going?
4. Diamond Bar (5-1) — An impressive two weeks in the Hacienda, beating Bonita, West Covina with Los Altos up next. If the Brahmas get past the Conqs, all that stands in the way of a Hacienda league title would be Diamond Ranch, whom it plays next week.
5. Diamond Ranch (5-1) – The Panthers beat previously undefeated Los Altos and are feeling good about their Hacienda and Southeast Division chances. But there’s still a lot of work to do.
6. Charter Oak (1-4) – How is a 1-4 team No. 6? It’s the Amat rule. The Chargers’ win over Los Osos was more impressive by far than any victory of the teams ranked below. It’s that simple.
7. Los Altos (4-1) — Still say when all is said and done the Conqs finish third in the Hacienda behind Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch.
8. Bonita (4-2) — The Bearcats beat Rowland 59-0 which is the kind of win they need offensively and defensively for their confidence after losing to Diamond Bar. Can they still make the playoffs? Yes, but it won’t be easy.
9. South Hills (2-3) – The Huskies lost to three quality opponents and twice by a touchdown or less. With Chino Hills next their top ten ranking could be short-lived, but they deserve to be here this week.
10. Arroyo (4-1) — I’m going to throw them the Aram bone. I’m not so sure if they deserve No. 10, but they have looked good since a season-opening loss to Los Altos
The Rest: 11. Damien (2-3); 12. Ayala (2-3); 13. San Dimas (2-3); 14. Baldwin Park (5-0); 15. Pomona (5-0); 16. Northview (5-1); 17. Rosemead (4-1); 18. West Covina (2-4); 19. La Puente (4-1); 20.

Gladstone (2-3); 30. Nogales (2-4); 31. Sierra Vista (1-4); 32. Bassett (2-3); 33. Wilson (1-5); 34. Workman (2-3); 35. Ganesha (1-4).

    What the heck we blast los Altos who everyone said was going to win league and we get jumped by dBar? If anything we should have jumped Glendora who could easily be 0-4. There is absolutely no chance in the world that dBar can hang with us on the field as everyone has seen the last 3 years running. Everyone on the blog keeps taking shots at me each week and yet we keep proving everyone wrong by destroying all the hacienda pretenders. I predict we finish the regular season 9-1 and a top 1 seed in the playoffs. Yes we are that good and we keep proving it each and every week

      Win or lose, DR fans like you are a$$holes with no class

      • disqus_wD2qThRkJd

        I feel sorry for the kid if he really is somebody’s father!

    • OuttaYourMindTrib

      Ummm…. Mc Fly… you lost to A-FREAKING-YALA!!!!!

      Hello. Is anybody in there???

    • disqus_wD2qThRkJd

      Did you see the SGV Top 25?? Maybe that will calm you just a bit!

    • Inland_FB_Fan

      You lost to a sorry a$$ Ayala team….That’s why!

    • Stephen Carter

      Man…lets get a CIF Plaque first! Roddy is very well capable of doing it with this years team. There is nothing better than a quiet Champ!!

    • SGV FB Dad

      Actually, I agree with you on this point. DR is proving to be a very good team. I think you will beat DB and take the Hacienda. DR should be above DB in the rankings, but hey, after you beat up the pansy Brahmas you will see things change in your favor.

      • disqus_wD2qThRkJd

        still trying to live your dream???

        • SGV FB Dad

          What dream is that?

    • reality

      @DR pop: Last 3 years? Last year alone your powerhouse squad lost to Elsinore, West Covina, La Serna 49-0, and oh lest we forget your big bad team got worked by that monster team from ROWLAND.(lol). Best to keep your yap shut till you actually prove something over there in Pomona lest you wind up like Monrovia and have to hide from the blog.

    • The Dude

      That’s what everyone was saying about West Covina, that DB couldn’t hang with them, couldn’t stop the run. They also said that about Bonita. And San Dimas. Only time it was correct was Norwalk, who is much better than DR up front, and that was the game Peterson was hurt. Watching the DB/WC, DB’s offense was actually not very precise, compared to what it had been, and not by WC’s doing, and DB still put up numbers. If DB’s offense can start to click again (which it will), watch out

      • The Dude

        And wow I apologize for the awkward wording toward the end of that comment haha

  • 12th man

    1st time in recent years Amat has no running back in the top 10!! How important is the running game in the pac5? Just ask last year’s pac5 champion LONG BEACH POLY~

    • Valley Athletics

      Poly had 2 d1 running backs and huge Line .

  • Not So Fast My Friend

    I’m sorry, I’m still not understanding the value of Charter Oak at six with a 1-4 record over several other teams. The value of the their win over Los Osos shouldn’t give them that big a boost. Certainly not over more impressive (and deserving??) teams with better records, unless you’re going off of the strength of schedule. And what’s the “Amat Rule?”

    • AMAT 73

      The AMAT rule according to the Trib guys is that a win in “our corner of the world” ( in this case beating Los Osos by CO ) is far greater than any win by the teams below them . One year they gave AMAT the number one position due to beating Crespi simply because no one in the SGV could top that win . That’s why these rankings make no sense what so ever . You never know what or why or how come teams are rankied where they are and many times you get more love for who you lose to than who you beat ( just look at SH ) and you can run the table ( Pomona & BP ) on teams in front of you and wind up below a team like Damien #11 who has done nothing except lose to teams they should beat .Do you really think SH is the 9th best team in the SGV ????

      • Not So Fast My Friend

        Damien? lol, uh no. Thank you for that explanation. I agree, that’s nuts. So CO beating Los Osos is a bigger win than any of the teams beneath CO will have during the year? That means if SH beats CH, but loses to CO and CH beats CO, then SH should be ranked above CH. Man, that’s confusing just looking at that. Actually, I think I confused myself! lol

        • AMAT 73

          And me too after trying to decipher all that . I will say this , CO is much tougher than their record speaks. I think they truely used the preseason to find out what the team will be all about during the season and you saw some of it against Los Oso . Not a huge win but non the less a win against one of their peers in the Inland . Looks like they are coming together at the right time but we will see when they face Damien . I think CO wins by at least 10 – 14 points .
