A new way of ranking prep football

Is there a truly fair high school football ranking system in Tennessee? That is a question I am asking today.
   After glancing across the Internet yesterday evening, I came across a new set of high school football rankings at a major market publication.
   I read through the picks and saw some big question marks, and gave me more reason to usher an idea into the minds of the Tennessee Sports Media.
   This idea is the "Tennessee Football Composite Rankings."
   It is something I have spent many hours into preparing for your interest, as well as the interests of many football fans across the state.
   There are several things that sets this device apart from many of the other polls. However, I hope to be able to use some of these to enhance the new system's advantage.
   I will begin with a point system going to a team's win/loss record and the combined record of their opponents to that point in the season. It adds a flavor of fairness, and a taste of the strength of schedule.
   There are three polls that I look to on a regular basis for an accurate account of how things work in the state of Tennessee: The Sonny Moore's Computer Power Ratings, Earl Nall's Prep Performance Rankings, and the CoachT.com Fan Poll.
   Mr. Moore and Mr. Nall have been providing their ratings each season, while the CoachT.com fan poll revels at the opinion of the fans of this great state.
   Hopefully, I will be able to use each of these factors in the system, as well as the Associated Press weekly poll, only topping it off with regional standings and record.
   I practiced the device on the playoff teams in the five public school divisions, and surprisingly, I came up with the state champion and runner-up in the top four each time with the exception of 3-A.
   I will begin this system during week three of this year's football season, so stay on the lookout for this.
   Pre-Season Regional Predictions
   While everyone is jumping in on the pre-season ranking bandwagon, I decided to jump aboard and list some predictions for the region one conferences as follows:
   5-A: Science Hill, Dobyns-Bennett, Sevier County, South-Doyle, Bearden, Jefferson County, Campbell County, Karns.
   4-A: Elizabethton, Tennessee High, Johnson County, Daniel Boone, Sullivan Central, Sullivan South, Unicoi County, Sullivan East.
   3-A: Gatlinburg-Pittman, Seymour, Sullivan North, Pigeon Forge, Rutledge, Union County, Claiborne County.
   2-A: Hampton, Chuckey-Doak, Happy Valley, South Greene, West Greene.
   1-A: Cloudland, Jellico, Powell Valley, Unaka, North Greene, Cosby.
   OTHER NOTES:
   The Elizabethton STAR Football Edition will be released on Friday, August 23rd.
   This special edition will feature the best coverage of your area teams as well as the most in-depth previews of the additional conferences in the region.
   Tennessee was ranked number one in the nation in the recent Phil Steele's College Football Review publication.
   For the past three seasons, Steele has had the most accurate pre-season magazine in the nation. Steele also listed Elizabethton's Jason Witten as the top tight end in the nation.
