SHP is "God's Gift to Football"--it's on our school-sponsored tshirts. We should not be ranked #4 if we're God's gift to the entire sport.

Which is why your ranked #4...

I think Menlo should be the ones with the gripe, being seeded 7 after a 26 point win over #4 SHP. It will be tough for either team to make it to the finals though. Carmel will probably make it to their 3rd consecutive title game, and face Palma.
