Metro Top 10: Edina states case to be No. 1

Let the argument begin.

Let the argument begin.

Edina's victory over Eden Prairie on Friday should ensure the Hornets the top spot in the metro rankings. And they do get the nod, but it's not a slam dunk. As so many commenters pointed out, Totino-Grace beat Edina 15-12 on Sept. 7. Since the Eagles are still undefeated, don't they deserve the No. 1 spot?

It's a solid argument with no definitive right or wrong. Here's my reasoning: Rankings change each week, therefore, how a team is currently playing carries the most weight. In successive weeks, Edina has won at Hopkins, at Wayzata and at Eden Prairie, breaking a 49-game Eden Prairie home winning streak. I can't imagine a more impressive stretch of victories.
