2013, Week 6, 10 Changes in Top 10

The weekly UT-San Diego football poll went through a topsy-turvy Week 5, beginning with Oceanside’s loss to Mission Hills,  and flip-flopping all the way down to El Capitan’s high-powered Vaqueros, making their bow in the Top 10.

I differed on a few of the vote’s results.

My essential disagreement with colleagues was over No. 2.  I had Cathedral.  They went for San Pasqual.

San Pasqual opponents have a combined 11-12 record.  Cathedral’s is 13-8.

Consensus was for Eagles.

Consensus was for Eagles.

I weigh heavily San Diego teams’ performances against those out of the area, essentially from Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside Counties.

Cathedral was upset by a strong, local Helix squad but measured Vista Murrieta, the Los Angeles Times‘ No. 4-ranked club coming in to the Broncos’ match with the Dons, who beat the Riverside County power, 35-28.

Cathedral also took on what appeared to be an elite challenge in its season opener when the Dons signed Jordan High, a 2012 state champion from Sandy, Utah.  The Dons won 38-6 and Sandy has struggled since, posting a season record of 3-3.

My associates apparently don’t think much of my applications.  They voted Cathedral low enough that the Dons are fifth this week.

San Pasqual is 5-0 against Torrey Pines, Del Norte, Mt. Carmel,  Poway, and La Costa Canyon.

No knock on the Eagles, who have passed every test, but Cathedral has lined up against far more formidable opponents.

I like Cathedral.

I like Cathedral.
