"I don’t know how you punish a kid who beats Ryan Mango in Folkstyle & Greco, IN THE SAME SUMMER, and rank him below."
Punish? In preseason rankings?
The only ones getting punished are rankers who get brutalized for preseason ESTIMATIONS, which is, in reality, all they are at this early stage.
But, If you insist..........then I would say Jamie Clark got punished more than Cox.
I doubt that you will get punished for your preview picks. Calling for 6 PA winners along with Cox gives you a politically correct position. Quite non-punishable.
