This is a weird AP poll ... Harlan has the most first-place votes with 6 (Humboldt has 3, ADM and Mount Vernon 1 apiece), yet someone has the Cyclones so far down their list that Harlan doesn't even get the overall 2 spot but instead is 3rd.

And have Davenport West #6 in 5A…LOL
Yeah, except for beating a decent Dubuque Senior team last week West hasn't played anybody - their opponents' winning percentage of .3148 (17-37) is the worst of any team in 5A.

Even so, with Kennedy, City High, and Muscatine coming up the Falcons may have a shot at going 7-2 ... which is pretty amazing considering they've been 1-16 the last two years.

Just for grins - Waukee Northwest and Dubuque Hempstead have played the toughest 5A schedules so far (their opponents are 35-19) followed by Ankeny Centennial (33-21). Opponents for Dowling, City High, Johnston, and Waukee are all 32-22.

In 4A one reason why Pella is 0-6 is because they've played by far the toughest schedule, a direct reversal of Davenport West's with their opponents going 37-17.
