2022 Official Hollywood Top 27 - USports Football

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 -POLL 1

This season kinda snuck up on me. It's 2022 already!

The weird thing is that the Urban Cowboys are defying the world and bringing in masks again this year. The CIS should make their football team play in masks! Just so that UWO fans can read this, the most authoritative ranking in university football, I have had the draw inspiration from a selection of masked ladies, all of whom love their football.

STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.

CANADA WEST

1 Sask (1-0 2-0) beat Man# Cal
2 Reg (1-0 1-0) beat Man
3 UBC (1-0 2-0) beat Cal# Alta
4 Man (0-1 0-2) lost Sask# Reg
5 Alta (0-1 0-1) lost UBC
6 Cal (0-1 0-2) lost UBC# Sask

I saw large portions Reg-Man and Alta-UBC. There was some potential with all four teams, and some weaknesses. I suspect a lot of mixed results amongst those teams. But those Dinos! WTF?

ONTARIO

1 UWO (2-0) beat Gue Laur
2 Que (2-0 3-0) beat McG# Tor Ott
3 Ott (1-1) beat Wind lost Que
4 Tor (1-1) beat Carl lost Que
5 Carl (1-1) beat McM lost Tor
6 Wind (1-1) beat Gue lost Ott
7 Wat (1-0) beat York
8 Laur (0-1) lost UWO
9 McM (1-1) beat York lost Carl
10 Gue (0-2 1-2) beat York# lost UWO Wind
11 York (0-1 0-2) lost Gue# Wat

So York is on Jabroni Alert already. Lots of teams in that mid-range look like they could rise or fall by a lot in the next couple of weeks.

QUEBEC

1 Lav (2-0) beat Sher McG
2 Mtl (1-0) beat Conc
3 Sher (1-1) beat Conc lost Lav
4 Conc (0-2) lost Mtl Sher
5 McG (0-1 0-2) lost Que# Lav

Not even the Q is producing disgusting blowouts. Good! Is anybody else hoping that Sher, Conc, and McG do well for a change and make the final?

ATLANTIC

1 MtA (1-0 2-0) beat SMU# Bish
2 St. FX (1-0 2-0) beat Aca# SMU
3 Bish (1-1) beat Aca lost MtA
4 SMU (1-1 1-2) beat Aca lost MtA# SFX
5 Aca (0-2 0-3) lost SFX# Bish SMU

How long until we get courtesy votes for AUS teams in the Top Ten?

STEP 3: THE BLEND

"POTENTIAL CONTENDERS"

"COULD GO EITHER WAY"
1 UWO (2-0) beat Gue Laur
2 Sask (1-0, 2-0) beat Man# Cal

4 Que (2-0, 3-0) beat McG# Tor Ott
5 Reg (1-0, 1-0) beat Man

20 Gue (0-2, 1-2) beat York# lost UWO Wind
21 Conc (0-2) lost Mtl Sher
22 McG (0-1, 0-2) lost Que# Lav
23 Cal (0-1, 0-2) lost UBC# Sask
24 Bish (1-1) beat Aca lost MtA
25 SMU (1-1, 1-2) beat Aca lost MtA# SFX
26 Aca (0-2, 0-3) lost SFX# Bish SMU

"JABRONIS-IN-WAITING"
27 York (0-1, 0-2) lost Gue# Wat

Hopefully this will be a season of relative parity. So far it has proven difficult for a team to win twice in a row.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - POLL 2

No big surprise results so no big shake-ups. This week's assistant convinced me to shuffle the categories a bit, recognizing the Potential Contenders and bringing back the Ham'n'Eggers.

4 Alta (1-1 1-1) beat Man lost UBC

The Evil Monkeys beat the Bisons so #4 and #5 switch-a-roo.

ONTARIO

1 UWO (3-0) beat Gue Laur Que
2 Que (2-1 3-1) beat McG# Tor Ott lost UWO
3 Laur (1-1) beat Tor lost UWO

9 McM (1-2) beat York* lost Carl Ott
10 Wat (1-1) beat York* lost Gue
11 York (0-3 0-4) lost Gue# Wat Carl McM

The Urban Cowboys solidified themselves as #1 and York is clearly jabroni material. Wins over York really don‛t count for much. In between, there is much potential for major shifts to occur. This ranking has no "oddball" results, i.e. nobody has lost to a team behind themselves in the rankings.

QUEBEC

1 Mtl (2-0) beat Conc Lav
2 Lav (2-1) beat Sher McG lost Mtl
3 Sher (2-1) beat Conc McG lost Lav
4 Conc (0-2) lost Mtl Sher
5 McG (0-2 0-3) lost Que# Lav Sher

One shuffle here caused by Montreal‛s win over Laval. Will either of them lose to one of the other teams?

ATLANTIC

1 MtA (2-0 3-0) beat SMU# Bish SMU
2 St. FX (2-0 3-0) beat Aca# SMU Aca
3 Bish (1-1) beat Aca lost MtA
4 SMU (1-2 1-3) beat Aca lost MtA# SFX MtA

No changes here.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - POLL 3

I guess you could say that the early season is over. Teams seem to have found their level. This week‛s assistant has lots of masks, making her safe enough for Western Ontario‛s admins and every member of this forum. Those tattoos likely distract you from the masks.

STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

[color=Gray]The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.

CANADA WEST

1 Sask (3-0 4-0) beat Man# Cal UBC Reg
2 Reg (2-1) beat Man Cal lost Sask
3 Alta (2-1) beat Man Cal lost UBC
4 UBC (1-2 2-2) beat Cal# Alta lost Sask Man
5 Man (1-2 1-3) beat UBC lost Sask# Reg Alta
6 Cal (0-3 0-4) lost UBC# Sask Reg Alta

We now have our first rankings loop. UBC beat Alberta who beat Manitoba who beat UBC. Calgary played just UBC (21 point exhibition loss) and Alberta (11 point loss). Sask played just Manitoba (1 point exhibition win) and UBC (19 point win). This doesn‛t break the logjam, UBC being ahead on one and behind on the other and Manitoba/Alberta having no common opponent outside the loop. So margin of victory gives it to Alberta, with UBC then Manitoba following.

ONTARIO

1 UWO (3-0) beat Gue Laur Que
2 Que (3-1 4-1) beat McG# Tor Ott Carl lost UWO
3 Laur (2-1) beat Tor York* lost UWO
4 Ott (3-1) beat Wind McM Gue lost Que
5 Wind (2-1) beat Gue Tor lost Ott
6 Tor (1-3) beat Carl lost Que Laur Wind
7 Carl (2-2) beat McM York* lost Tor Que
8 McM (2-2) beat York* Wat lost Carl Ott
9 Gue (1-3 2-3) beat York#* Wat lost UWO Wind Ott
10 Wat (1-2) beat York* lost Gue McM
11 York (0-4 0-5) lost Gue# Wat Carl McM Laur

Windsor leapfrogs Toronto and margin of victory allows McMaster to leapfrog Guelph. Once again, this ranking has no "oddball" results. The gap from #3 to #9 is not that much. The gap between #2 and #3 will impact The Blend.

QUEBEC

1 Mtl (3-0) beat Conc Lav Sher
2 Lav (2-1) beat Sher McG lost Mtl
3 Sher (2-2) beat Conc McG lost Lav Mtl
4 Conc (1-2) beat McG lost Mtl Sher
5 McG (0-3 0-4) lost Que# Lav Sher Conc

Next week is the Q‛s mid-point. Still no surprises by the bottom three. I had high hopes early last year. Dare I dream?

ATLANTIC

1 MtA (3-0 4-0) beat SMU# Bish SMU Aca
2 St. FX (3-0 4-0) beat Aca# SMU Aca Bish
3 Bish (1-2) beat Aca lost MtA SFX
4 SMU (1-2 1-3) beat Aca lost MtA# SFX MtA
5 Aca (0-4 0-5) lost SFX# Bish SMU SFX MtA

No changes here, again. But the scores are close so there will likely be some reversals in the return matches in two weeks. With nobody taking charge of the conference, they could all soon be ham'n'eggers and jabronis.

"JABRONIS"
27 York (0-4 0-5) lost Gue# Wat Carl McM Laur

The Gracious Queens beat McGill by 7 (in exhibition) and have messed up Toronto (by 22 points), Ottawa (by 10 points), and Carleton (by 32 points). This seems to confirm my suspicion that there is a huge gap between #2 and #3 in the OUA, much more than the gap between #2 and #3 in the CW. So a boost for the tightly-wound middle of the CW. The ?could go either way? category is shrinking, as it should.

Guelph, Mount Allison, and St. FX could soon be ham‛n‛eggers, and jabronyism beckons Acadia.
