It’s never too early to start sorting out the league, one level at a time. Anybody can Rank teams 1-32. I like to “group” them, because it makes more sense to my brain.
Plus, I find many teams share similar traits. So they belong together.
Argue with me all you like, but just remember: this could all change next week, and probably will! Let the great “kaleidoscope league” keep us guessing and re-assessing as summer turns to fall turns to winter!
