  1. This is no different than Dudley beating both Northern and Ragsdale but remain 3/4 spots below those guys in the polls. Their losses were to Hillside Smith and Page..top teams.

    However I do agree one game shouldn’t not affect Smith, but they lost to SA..that’s the difference. Had it been to Hillside of some other top tier team they would not have fell out of pole.

  2. Shudda played a tougher non conference schedule,their only competition was HP Central and their conference. No worry . . .be back to the same ol’ Smith next season . . . . . .and payback gonna be a r-e-a-l bee-itch ! watch and see ! Don’t run now Rodney …. . . . . .lmao
