Take the state polls for what they are worth ... OPINION

The Associated Press state polls for basketball are not gospel nor should they be taken so seriously that they ruin your day.

Cliche as it sounds, they are what they are.

Voters from all over the state of Ohio are asked to vote on teams they have never seen. Imperfect system, but that's what we have to work with.

So don't get too caught up in who is ranked where or who isn't ranked at all. Not worth your elevated stress level.

Is Mentor ranked too low? Is VASJ ranked where they should be? What about Kenston in D-II?

It just isn't worth worrying about or taking too much stock in one way or another, folks.

It is certainly nice and a bouquet on the resume, but understand, it is not a scientific look at the best teams in the state.

Yearly complaint of mine, so there it is and let's all move along.
