JC Grid-Wire Top 25 (9-12-06)

Ranking the nation's community colleges this early in the season is like trying to catch a bouncing beach ball with suntan lotion all over your hands.  In other words, ones guess is as good as another.

After careful flipping of coins and studying whatever stats are available at this point, we have come up with El Camino's Warriors as the numero uno honcho.

John Featherstone's lads traveled to No. 4 Chaffey and came away with a 25-20 victory. Last week's leader, Butler, managed a hard fought win over 0-2 Dodge City, gaining a measure of revenge for their 2005 playoff loss at the hands of the Conquistadors.  Pre-season favorite, San Francisco, travels to Fresno, also 2-0, in a tilt that should separate the men from the boys.  Mt. San Antonio still hasn't found a scoring punch, but might need it at Cerritos Sat. night.

Defending national champion, Grossmont, bounced back from the opening loss to MSAC to whomp Canyons 25-3 and, who knows, may not lose again.  It takes a spotless record to hit the top-25 this week.
