And while you may be right about outside the G, the facts are that when the alliance or omha top teams have met most of the G teams this year they have had there hands full. I blame the coaching in the G this year compared to last years 96. The top 96 teams last year all non parent. This year all top 4 teams coached by dads (until recently when TF resigned from JRC). I also believe the prospect game would have been better if WG would have loaded a few lines rather than spreading out the top talent. Last year CMD, JHS, MDC on a line vs DS, RF and cant remember winger. anyway just my 2 cents, cheers,
Even with Mike Babcock coaching, the 97's are not as good. I agree last year there was some good coaches like Ken Strong and Geoff SChomogyi. Coaching your own children is one of the hardest things to do, I dont know how some of them pull it off. All star or All-state games are the worst to judge players. There is no chemistry, very little structure, very individualistic mindsets.
