    Default 2015 OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27

    OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27

    I heard the pent-up demand for rankings and immediately knew that this was a signal that the people wanted the OHT27 to return. Now, as the loyal followers know, the OHT27 is based on the scores. No scores means no rankings. So my best suggestion is to bask in the glow of the wisdom from past seasons:

    2009 thread
    2010 thread
    2011 thread
    2012 thread
    2013 thread
    2014 thread

    What does 2015 hold in store for us? Well, 2014 was a drab season. The OUA was blowouts, the AUS was uninspiring, and the Q and CW looked like foregone conclusions. But then came the playoffs. Manitoba stunned Sask and Calgary whilst Montreal finally overcame Laval. Hopefully, some of this drama will be injected into the regular season this time around.

    As summer enters its final quarter, we have much anticipation. Will York last 2 weeks before being proclaimed a jabroni? Will Quebec produce any surprises? Will the AUS continue to be decimated by the Q? And how will the CW sort itself out?

    This brings us to the choice of this year's lovely assistants. Since it is not time for the big reveal, let's just say that with X-Files coming back ...

    THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

    No predictions in the OHT27. I will have to miss that one due to holidays.

    Here are the results thus far:

    Toronto 36 McGill 3
    Laurier 10 Saskatchewan 33
    Guelph 33 Manitoba 33
    Ottawa 3 Montreal 36
    Queen's 18 Concordia 21
    Carleton 16 Sherbrooke 12
    Windsor 28 York 12

    Question: Were those Carleton and Windsor wins in actual games?

    It is early, but a good sign is that the OUA is producing less extreme results.

    Remember, the truth is out there.

    Hopefully you don't go and put too much stock in exhibition results. I already see my team getting trashed and down-graded because of an exhibition game. While you will continue to be high on Carleton as it's the in thing with their money and fabulous recruiting, shiny uniforms and new MNP Park name.

    Let's just say Campbell would have more than 6 carries in a real game, although the 7.7 yard average per carry is about right.

    That said Hillis is a beast, and Burko's running of the zone read has improved immensely. Both good signs for the Huskies pushing the Dinos in the West.
    2019: 10 weeks, 17 games, 6,587kms.
    2018: 11 weeks, 17 games, 7,952kms. (preseason incl.)
    2017: 12 weeks, 21 games, 9,675kms. (preseason incl.)
    2016: 14 weeks, 18 games, 9,791kms. (preseason incl.)
    2015: 11 weeks, 16 games, 6,247kms.
    .......
    2009: 12 weeks, 19 games, 11,063kms.
    2008: 12 weeks, 19 games, 6,191kms.
    2007: 11 weeks, 18 games and 7,531kms.

    Due to the numerous references to the OHT27 in multiple other threads, it is ime for a brief preview. A hint, if you will, as to the first ranking.

    If one team beats another team, even in an exhibition game, they will be ranked ahead of the team they beat.

    As for a tie game, those teams need to be ranked evenly.

    With the OUA getting an early jump on things, their rankings will begin to emerge. And their exhibition results have been encouraging. More decent scorelines would be much appreciated.

    It will take a while for categories to emerge. Especially if there are lots of unexpected results and situations where A beat B who beat C who beat A.

    Default OHT27 - 1.1

    OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 1.1

    I don't always issue a ranking after just the OUA has played. But with all the pent-up demand, here it is. Many teams have not played so they get an “n/r” which means “not ranked”. And remember: The truth is out there.



    PRIOR OHT27s:
    2014 – final

    STEP 1: WEEK 1.1 RESULTS

    Exhibition

    Toronto 36 McGill 3
    Laurier 10 Saskatchewan 33
    Guelph 33 Manitoba 33
    Ottawa 3 Montreal 36
    Queen's 18 Concordia 21
    Carleton 16 Sherbrooke 12
    Windsor 28 York 12
    UBC 41 Laval 16

    OUA

    Carleton 24 Queen's 34
    Laurier 38 York 21
    W. Ontario 76 Windsor 7
    McMaster 55 Toronto 33
    Guelph 78 Waterloo 7

    STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

    The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni. The games marked ¶ had the decision reversed.

    CANADA WEST

    1 UBC (0-0, 1-0) beat Lav#
    2 Manitoba (0-0, 0-0-1) tied Gue#
    3 Saskatchewan (0-0, 1-0) beat Laur#
    n/r Alberta (0-0)
    n/r Calgary (0-0)
    n/r Regina (0-0)

    So far all we can infer is that the CW looks to be exceptionally tough and unpredictable.

    ONTARIO

    1 W. Ontario (1-0, 1-0) beat Win
    2 Guelph (1-0, 1-0-1) beat Wat, tied Man
    3 McMaster (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
    4 Queen's (1-0, 1-1) beat Car, lost Con#
    5 Toronto (1-0, 1-1) beat McG#, lost McM
    6 Carleton (0-1, 1-1) beat Sher#, lost Que
    7 Laurier (1-0, 1-1) beat York, lost Sask#
    8 Ottawa (0-0, 0-1) lost Mtl#
    9 Windsor (0-1, 1-1) beat York# lost WO
    10 York (0-1, 0-2) lost Win# Laur
    11 Waterloo (0-1, 0-1) lost Gue

    The exhibition results were promising for the OUA in that they looked like a less extreme conference. The opening results produced some severe blowouts. Jabroniville may be able to start taking reservations.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Montreal (0-0, 1-0) beat Ott#
    2 Concordia (0-0, 1-0) beat Que#
    3 Laval (0-0, 0-1) lost UBC#
    4 Sherbrooke (0-0, 0-1) lost Car#
    5 McGill (0-0, 0-1) lost Tor#
    n/r Acadia (0-0)
    n/r Bishop's (0-0)
    n/r Mount Allison (0-0)
    n/r Saint Mary's (0-0)
    n/r St. F-X (0-0)

    The Q is in for a tumble this year. Some decisive losses against so-so teams from elsewhere.

    STEP 3: THE BLEND

    1 Montreal (0-0, 1-0) beat Ott#
    2 UBC (0-0, 1-0) beat Lav#
    3 W. Ontario (1-0, 1-0) beat Win
    t4 Guelph (1-0, 1-0-1) beat Wat, tied Man
    t4 Manitoba (0-0, 0-0-1) tied Gue#
    6 McMaster (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
    7 Saskatchewan (0-0, 1-0) beat Laur#
    8 Concordia (0-0, 1-0) beat Que#
    9 Queen's (1-0, 1-1) beat Car, lost Con#
    10 Laval (0-0, 0-1) lost UBC#
    11 Toronto (1-0, 1-1) beat McG#, lost McM
    12 Carleton (0-1, 1-1) beat Sher#, lost Que
    13 Laurier (1-0, 1-1) beat York, lost Sask#
    14 Sherbrooke (0-0, 0-1) lost Car#
    15 Ottawa (0-0, 0-1) lost Mtl#
    16 Windsor (0-1, 1-1) beat York# lost WO
    17 McGill (0-0, 0-1) lost Tor#
    18 York (0-1, 0-2) lost Win# Laur
    19 Waterloo (0-1, 0-1) lost Gue
    n/r Acadia (0-0)
    n/r Alberta (0-0)
    n/r Calgary (0-0)
    n/r Bishop's (0-0)
    n/r Mount Allison (0-0)
    n/r Regina (0-0)
    n/r Saint Mary's (0-0)
    n/r St. F-X (0-0)

    Too early to categorize teams. I know people are on pins and needles waiting to see the fall's first jabroni.

    Mr biased homer here.

    Ottawa should be better than 8 in the OUA. They left half of their starters at home for Montreal.

    Carleton and Sherbrooke did not play an exhibition game. It was a controlled scrimmage.

    Crucial game at Gee-Gees Field on Sunday. Possibly the most interesting OUA match-up this coming weekend. Queen'[email protected]

    There were a cuple of games like that. I checked the team sites and it was reported as a game so I took it as such.

    The rankings are subject to major shifts in the early weeks.

    They seemed to make complete use of special teams which is indicator it was a game, not a scrimmage. But not a "full go" game because of the quick whistles & limited contact of the QB.

    Default OHT27 1.2

    OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27WEEK 1.2

    In the pursuit of the truth, this year's panel of fact-finding experts assisted in getting us one step closer to the ultimate OHT27. This was dubbed week “1,2” since the opening week for two conferences occurred this week. The OUA started last week, and the AUS starts next (after holding their exhibitions this week). So this is the second half of the CIS opening with classes just around the corner.

    One word of warning: The rankings are very sensitive at this point in time. One result could have a massive change to the rankings.



    PRIOR OHT27s:
    2013 – final
    Week 1.1

    STEP 1: WEEK 1.2 RESULTS

    CWUAA
    Alberta 29 Regina 22
    UBC 16 Calgary 49
    Manitoba 34 Saskatchewan 28

    OUA
    Waterloo 0 Carleton 57
    Queen's 17 Ottawa 41
    Laurier 19 Guelph 30
    York 10 W. Ontario 74
    Windsor 7 Toronto 8

    RSEQ
    Shebrooke 37 Concordia 0
    Bishop's 3 McGill 10
    Montreal 9 Laval 12

    AUS – EXHBITION
    Mount Allison 14 St. FX 29
    Saint Mary's 14 Acadia 3

    STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

    The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.

    CANADA WEST

    1 Calgary (1-0, 1-0) beat UBC
    2 Manitoba (1-0, 1-0-1) beat Sask, tied Gue#
    3 UBC (0-1, 1-1) beat Lav# lost Cal
    4 Saskatchewan (0-1, 1-1) beat Laur# lost Man
    5 Alberta (1-0, 1-0) beat Reg
    6 Regina (0-1, 0-1) lost Alta

    After UBC kicked la crappe out of Laval there was much bewilderment as to where they fit into the ranking structure. Were they going from a non-playoff team to a legitimate contender? The fact that Bedrock U took them to the woodshed now makes everybody ask where UBC fits into the conference picture. Did they just beat up on an inferior team? Manitoba then followed up with a hard-fought win in Saskatchewan, gaining a valuable road win. (One more than they had in the regular season last year!) Alberta and Regina were the least fancied teams in the conference, yet their game was quite good by all accounts.

    ONTARIO

    1 W. Ontario (2-0, 2-0) beat Wind York*
    2 Guelph (2-0, 2-0-1) beat Wat* Laur tied Man
    3 McMaster (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
    4 Ottawa (1-0, 1-1) beat Que lost Mtl#
    5 Queen's (1-1, 1-2) beat Car lost Con# Ott
    6 Carleton (1-1, 2-1) beat Sher# Wat* lost Que
    7 Toronto (2-0, 2-1) beat McG#* Wind lost McM
    8 Laurier (1-1, 1-2) beat York* lost Sask# Gue
    9 Windsor (0-2, 1-2) beat York#* lost WO Tor
    10 York (0-3, 0-3) lost Wind# Laur UWO
    11 Waterloo (0-2, 0-2) lost Gue Car

    My optimism for the OUA seems to have been misplaced. This conference is back to its old tricks. The bottom teams are not legitimate opponents and wins over them mean absolutely nothing in the rankings. This makes the conference very tough to rank on the national stage.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (1-0, 1-1) beat Mtl lost UBC#
    2 Montreal (0-1, 1-1) beat Ott# lost Lav
    3 St. FX (0-0, 1-0) beat MtA#
    4 Sherbrooke (1-0, 1-1) beat Con lost Car#
    5 Mount Allison (0-0, 0-1) lost SFX#
    6 Saint Mary's (0-0, 1-0) beat Aca#
    7 Concordia (0-1, 1-2) beat Que# lost Sher
    8 Acadia (0-0, 0-1) lost MtA#
    9 McGill (1-0, 1-1) beat Bish* lost Tor#
    10 Bishop's (0-1, 0-1) lost McG*


    There has yet to be an interlock, and in fact the AUS has just played exhibition games. So each conference should be evaluated separately at first. The Q worked out well with games between the top, middle, and bottom teams against one another. It is hard to see the Q in a positive light so far. Sherbrooke did have a positive bounce after a loss to Carleton. The AUS has 4 teams all capable of a change of direction. St. FX and SMU must be happy with their wins.

    STEP 3: THE BLEND

    "POTENTIAL CONTENDERS"
    1 Calgary (1-0, 1-0) beat UBC
    2 W. Ontario (2-0, 2-0) beat Wind York*

    8 McMaster (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
    9 Saskatchewan (0-1, 1-1) beat Laur# lost Man

    "COULD GO EITHER WAY"

    26 Waterloo (0-2, 0-2) lost Gue Car
    27 Bishop's (0-1, 0-1) lost McG*

    This blend introduces a semblance of categories. It must be noted that the top 22 are only one or two good games away from contender status. It is just that early. The ranking gaps are very small right now.

    Default OHT27 - 2

    OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27WEEK 2

    Now that all conferences have played regular season games the truth is coming closer to be exposed. The OHT27 has gained inspiration this year from Agent Scully and ladies in skirt suits everywhere. That inspiration is paying off right now with a ranking which exemplifies pure wisdom. Here we go ....



    PRIOR OHT27s:
    2014 – final
    Week 1.1
    Week 1.2

    STEP 1: WEEK 2 RESULTS

    CWUAA
    Saskatchewan 26 Alberta 38
    Calgary 46 Manitoba 38
    Regina 20 UBC 27

    OUA
    Ottawa 42 McMaster 57
    Waterloo 24 Queen's 57
    Carleton 62 Windsor 16
    Guelph 49 York 22
    W. Ontario 59 Laurier 9

    RSEQ
    McGill 2 Montreal 42
    Concordia 38 Bishop's 18
    Laval 27 Sherbrooke 24 (ot)

    AUS
    Mount Allison 38 Saint Mary's 6
    St. FX 15 Acadia 31

    STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

    The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.

    CANADA WEST

    1 Calgary (2-0, 3-0) beat Reg# UBC Man
    2 Manitoba (1-1, 1-1-1) beat Sask tied Gue# lost Cal
    3 Alberta (2-0, 2-0) beat Reg Sask
    4 UBC (1-1, 2-1) beat Lav# Reg lost Cal
    5 Saskatchewan (0-2, 1-2) beat Laur# lost Man Alta
    6 Regina (0-2, 0-3) lost Cal# Alta UBC

    Alberta has back-to-back wins and cannot be ignored. The only dominant result so far is the UBC-Calgary game from week 1. The CW is one crazy ride this year. One note: there was an exhibition game I missed while on holidays and it has been added:
    Regina 9 Calgary 25

    ONTARIO

    1 W. Ontario (3-0, 3-0) beat Wind* York* Laur
    2 Guelph (3-0, 3-0-1) beat Wat* Laur York* tied Man#
    3 McMaster (2-0, 2-0) beat Tor Ott
    4 Ottawa (1-1, 1-2) beat Que lost Mtl# McM
    5 Queen's (2-1, 2-2) beat Car Wat* lost Con#, Ott
    6 Carleton (2-1, 3-1) beat Sher# Wat* Wind* lost Que
    7 Toronto (2-0, 2-1) beat McG*#, Wind* lost McM
    8 Laurier (1-2, 1-3) beat York* lost Sask# Gue UWO
    9 Windsor (0-3, 1-3) beat York*# lost UWO Tor Car
    10 York (0-3, 0-4) lost Wind*# Laur UWO Gue
    11 Waterloo (0-3, 0-3) lost Gue Car Que

    The OUA is actually not to hard to rank this year. No upsets, or even mild surprises. What dreadful mismatches so far.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (2-0, 2-1) beat Mtl Sher lost UBC#
    2 Montreal (1-1, 2-1) beat Ott# McG* lost Lav
    3 Mount Allison (1-0, 1-1) beat SMU lost SFX#
    4 Sherbrooke (1-1, 1-2) beat Con lost Car# Lav
    5 Acadia (1-0, 1-1) beat SFX lost MtA#
    6 Concordia (1-1, 1-2) beat Que# Bish* lost Sher
    7 St. FX (0-1, 1-1) beat MtA# lost Aca
    8 Saint Mary's (0-1, 1-1) beat Aca# lost MtA
    9 McGill (1-1, 1-2) beat Bish* lost Tor# Mtl
    10 Bishop's (0-2, 0-2) lost McG* Con

    The Q teams are easily ranked 1-6 due to a nice, convenient schedule. The A is odd. The teams to win exhibition games turned around and lost regular seson games. This makes them hard to blend with the Q teams. We'll know more after the Q-A interlock weekend.

    26 Waterloo (0-3, 0-3) lost Gue Car Que
    27 Bishop's (0-2, 0-2) lost McG* Con

    There are the usual problems – i.e. Trying to find some basis to rank OUA teams who have played a jabroni-laden schedule so far. Despite the howls from Laval fans, it is pretty clear that they are a team with only a tenuous grasp on contender status. They were whipped by UBC and needed overtime to beat a team who lost to Carleton. Had they lost to Montreal they would be in The Blob right now. The Blob teams (after Ottawa) are exceptionally closely ranked.

    The Q teams are easily ranked 1-6 due to a nice, convenient schedule. The A is odd. The teams to win exhibition games turned around and lost regular seson games. This makes them hard to blend with the Q teams. We'll know more after the Q-A interlock weekend.

    Guess you can't put much importance to exhibition games then, right?

    CanWest is so strong ... they keep winning Vanier's it's unfair . I hope the champion of the other league will score once in the next Vanier to save face.Btw nice victory by Calgary against the defending Vanier champion Manitoba.

    Pit Regina or Saskatchewan against McGill or Bishops. Who do you think comes out on top?

    When people are comparing conferences, perhaps they're comparing all of the teams rather than just the champion. Of course Montreal and Laval fans aren't used to anyone below the top two teams being relevant, so I can see the confusion.

    Guelph-Montreal game has yet to start. Isn't it a bit too early to assert your 'CDub Strong, way better than OUA or RSEQ'? We're all tired of hearing you claim this, and I don't recall their being lots of Vanier Cups won by CW either....

    To the point where it gets overrepetitive with his claim of Regina being better than Laval? LOL.

    I think Hollywood is using those scores more so to outline that they were pretty in-line with what ended up happening. St FX knocked off Mount A, same result on Loney bowl. Montreal won their game, Laval lost theirs, so if you're trying to make it fit then you could say that makes sense? UBC won their game in dominant fashion, though Calgary didn't play so who know what to make of that. The Guelph one doesn't really say anything as it was a tie against the semi-finalists from CW who got drilled by UBC. Now if UBC ends up hammering everyone we will never hear the end of it.

    It's pretty blatant that one's pointing to specific scores to really assert his opinion.

    If that's not the case then why didn't he mention the drubbing Laurier had suffered against Sask, Sherbrooke and Queen's' close losses to Carleton and Concordia? Sure Laurier did improve a lot over the season, but for most of it the Golden Hawks did very poorly. Sherbrooke and Queen's had promising starts ending horribly and the other two having an above-average season and finishing well?

    I'm not entirely against one suggesting his/her opinion if different. I, however, do find it annoying that one is drilling it to everybody's ears every single week. Is that any better than 'Guelph has no weakness' argument?

    LiveBreatheFootball ; If you spent as much time as Hollywood does on his rankings then so be it, I would accept your theory. You critically complain and then you refer to games/scores of little or no consequence to the teams remaining and results last week. I see nothing wrong with a little referral to pertinent scores of last weekend. Hollywood Drilling, no , maybe a little gloating. His rankings sure get us involved and are food for thought . I like it, Just like Mikey..............

    If you have problem with criticism then so be it. I've been planning to do rankings for a while anyways, may as well get started next season.

    I have no problem with gloating. Drilling same old stuff every week is not "maybe a little gloating". It's as annoying as many ACG members holding blatant grudge against Guelph and alternating their statements every hour. Maybe go deeper into the content and how and what makes UBC a particularly surprising and good contender would make this healthier...

    Bishop's who lost 1 game by 7pts, is last in the Nation , 2 ranks below York who have lost 2 games by galactic-level margins ( I refuse to give any credence to exhibition game results but if you insist then they lost 3 )

    Laval who was ranked 2nd falls to 6th after beating the #1 team ( and defending Vanier Cup champs )

    And those are only the first 2 gizmos that jumped at me .

    Your ranking is getting weirder and weirder each year.
    Train ride to a home game..$80, season tickets $198. Beer and hotdogs at the game $20, Championship Cap and player's jersey,$100.
    Trip to Vanier Cup 2012,$500. Trip to 2013 Vanier Cup and having a cool lunch with Jim Mullin the next day, $200.
    Being a fan of the only team with 4 consecutive years in the Championship Game, 3 Vanier Cups in front of THEM , 9 Vanier Cups ahead of UdeMontreal...PRICELESS

    Western being ranked #2 after beating 2 terrible teams is another one.

    I appreciate the exercise of Hollywood however.
