on past success Irrelevant to this year
future success What will the Mega Millions lottery numbers be for Friday?
strength of schedule This year, yes. But SLC's stats were not comparable to Colerain's, even when SLC's tough games are thrown out.....
strength of team For 2004, I highly doubt it
fame OK, but what does this have to do with being a better team in 2004?
tradition Colerain has been quite good for years now, but again, this doesn't make one better than the other for 2004
blood lines(many dallas cowboy son playing on team) Please. Got any d-linemen who can bench 500 lbs? A RB that can bench 400?
rich, top notch coaches(I ought to be a salesman) able to adapt to any situation This is ridiculous.
All great teams have close games, regardless... Look at USC this year, they were ranked number one all season, just like SLC.... they had to play everbody at their best otherwise they would've lost that ranking. Look, does this sound familiar - USC battled against 6-6 UCLA and barely won... But that doesn't mean USC doesn't deserve the #1 ranking at that time, USC still won the game. Not to mention, USC is suppose to have the best defense in the Pac 10.. Hmmmmmm
Stats don't matter.... it's the game itself... and we will never know about SLC and Colerain... What could've, would've, should've... They are both great teams, Congratulations to both of them.
We can say this about our Team, Can you?
