This week's "Burning Question": Monroe and Bainbridge are both 0-1 --- so why are they still atop The Herald's Fab 5 Poll?

This week's "Burning Question":

"The Herald’s sports staff understands that the Top 2 teams in our Fab 5 Poll — Monroe and Bainbridge, respectively — are both 0-1. But when you look at both teams’ losses, which came in Weeks 1 and 2 to a pair of state powers, how would you rank them? And keep in mind, this is an area Top 5 poll, which ranks the five best teams in The Herald’s coverage area, spanning 26 schools."

Preseason ranks means nothing right now. Even in college football the overhype of preseason ranks just gives sportscenter something to talk about. I think you get a better understanding of who's team is good after week 4. In Monroe's case, they are returning the most starters with a team last year that lost a heartbreaker in the 2nd round.
