Thoughts on who will be the 2018 season's D1 and D2 top 10 teams. I know for sure Strawn has to be #1 in D2, as for D1 not to sure. I haven't decided my top 10 yet and thought the fine people of sixmanfootball.com could entertain the rest of us.

McLean may be the favorite to come out of the West in D1

It's hard to speculate not knowing who looses who to graduation. I look forward to DCTF for this reason. That said based on history and Coach Burkhart it's hard for me to see RS down to 10. If I remember right Tippie is a sr this year and it seems like another one or maybe two of their top players graduate but they still will have some excellently coached experience. U Hill is hard to figure. Not much in the news from that part of the state about them, I've looked. I think they bring back a couple of hosses maybe the upback/qb (tight), a good size linebacker. Heard they had some injuries this year. If they're healthy who knows. They should know Coach Mallory's program by now.

Richland is at 10, I'm being generous to the Coyotes. Expect changes AT THE TOP of Coyote Country. Trade winds on the South Plains tells me this info.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say neither Sands, nor Crowell will make the playoffs in D2.

I agree with most of this, except for I'd put Buena Vista in and take Motley County out of D2. I honestly think BV will be the heavy favorite this year in their region. Move RS up some spots. I'd also move Balmorhea close to #10. They lose 7 Seniors i believe. Loaded with a bunch of freshman this year who all got playing time but i do expect a bit of a down season compared to their last 2.
