    Hello and here we go again folks, the curious ranking of the "top 25" men's teams, that yet once again, makes me wonder just what the criteria is for making this weekly selection?  As you might know, I've been wondering now for quite several decades - going back to when I was on the selection committee in the late 70's and early 80's - why teams from the Far West, west of the Rocky Mountains can only "boast" of 5 teams?  Golly gee and willikers, there are quite a few other teams worthy of the weekly selection, and close "inspection" of the other 20 selected teams are from east of the Rockies, Continental Divide and Mighty Mississippi. So, once again, I ask, what gives?

    I suppose "no one knows" anything about the selection committee, and so I ask - YET AGAIN! - where's the transparency in the weekly selection/ranking processes?  Any info out there? any one, anyone home????
