Saint Louis rose 69 spots to No. 36 in the latest MaxPreps national computer rankings released Sunday.

The Crusaders (9-1) are coming off a 56-30 victory over Mililani in the Division I state semifinals. They’ll play Kahuku (12-0), which dropped 54 spots nationally after last weekend’s 13-0 win over Waianae in the other D-I semifinal, on Friday in the state title game at Aloha Stadium.

In addition, Saint Louis is ranked No. 8 in the Pacific region by USA Today.

    What no Kahuku? Are they guys drinking Kool-Aid?

  2. AOK November 16, 2015 12:22 pm

    AND…Cue all RR4L coming out of the boonies LOL

  3. EwaEwa November 16, 2015 1:33 pm

    What happened to Oregon last year after they got out of the cupcake pac12 and played a really tough team (Ohio State)?

    Rankings only matter at the end of the season.

  4. ILH November 16, 2015 3:01 pm

    Kahuku is next to go down. This is the best offense in the State ( St. Louis ), and if Kahuku plays like they did last week, it will be another blow out, Cal Lee’s Defense will shut down Kahuku’s Offense.

  5. 88 November 16, 2015 3:39 pm

    You guys never learn yet? Everybody looks good until they play Kahuku. Than after they look like fuams.

  6. Insideoutsidein November 16, 2015 3:41 pm

    @ilh stls …. identified as the the #1 in the state led by the Lee legends. Kahuku’s #2 the underdogs. Tata’s 1st year at the helm and no matter who’s at the helm they would still playing this Friday night. The better defense will win the game. You should be concerned if Stls offense can do what they did against defenses that are no comparison to who they played in the past and coach R. Lee knows. Kahuku are, no doubt concerned about their opponents explosive offense but with the talent and sticking to their assignments they will do good. A defense can’t stop both the run and pass they need to choose 1 and limit the other. Kahuku will not play like how they did last week. This is the show. That’s what their aiming for all year and hopefully take it back to the north shore. It will be a very good game.

  7. Gobigred's friend November 16, 2015 4:04 pm

    Fwam u guys had a hard time with waianae??


    Best qb? Lol straight fwam

    Stay off the xbox

  8. TiueWesley November 16, 2015 4:30 pm

    Forget the last game. Forget stats or you might end up looking like the sports writers on Scoringlive. It’s a Whooollllleeeee new ballgame baby. Bring it on! Best offence vs best defence. Go Big Red.

  9. EwaEwa November 16, 2015 4:44 pm

    Scoringlive is not sportswriters, they are data entry geeks drinking Mililani’s kool aid because they said Mililani would win the OIA title and when that didnt happen their entire staff said Mililani would beat St. Loius and then beat Kahuku for the state title.


  10. EwaEwa November 16, 2015 4:45 pm

    I guess Scoringlive is in kahoots with OC16 so they both gotta represent Mililani!

    BTW Mililani still got 3 first place votes today from the scoringlive groupies

  11. TiueWesley November 16, 2015 4:51 pm

    call it whatever you want, data, stats, sportswriters, geeks fact is. itsa whole new ball game and it’s gonna be played on the field not in this forum. Go Big Red

  12. Aitorahi November 16, 2015 5:25 pm

    Scoringlive’s “Da Five” were 0-5 last week on the Mil-StL game. Lol! Now we get the a classic match-up in the championship game. Best of luck to both teams.

  13. Realistic November 16, 2015 5:26 pm

    I just looked at and they had Kahuku ranked #2,405,791 in the nation. Funny thing is, there isn’t 2.4 million schools in the US. I think we better call the internet police! 88 (Jay)? GoBigRed (Jerry)? GoodStory (James)? Where are you? We need some investigating now!

  14. Insideoutsidein November 16, 2015 5:33 pm

    @realistic. Ha ha good one!!.. Maybe you to should investigate as well, you did fine looking up the maxi rankings. Why not dig deeper… The more the merrier.

  15. Lee Boy November 16, 2015 5:38 pm

    I guess we will find out Friday!!!!!

  16. realistic November 16, 2015 5:49 pm

    @inaideoutsidein, that is decent, haha.

  17. "UNITY=STRENGHT" November 16, 2015 6:04 pm

    I think there is conflicts of interest on both sides in a good competing way if you ask me. Everybody wants to win and nobody wants to lose the big dance and its going to be fun to watch how this game unfolds and turns out. Its funny because after all the blood & sweat getting to this point at the end its back to family and friends!!! 2015 STATE HAWAII FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER TAKES ALL!!!

  18. 88 November 16, 2015 6:04 pm

    Fuam you guys had a hard time with Iolani??

    GBR, YES… Best QB in the State. lol straight ounce.

    Get off the Xbox

  19. DoRightSleepWell November 16, 2015 6:33 pm

    Been enjoying reading all of the comments. Hope the game will be an exciting one, nothing like the 3 -0 snorefest last week. One conclusion I’ve come up with is no matter who wins, RR Nation will always say its because they (any team) won because of all the North Shore talent on the team. Let’s just go on record to say that no team would be worth anything if a player on the team isn’t from the North Shore. Best of luck to both teams!

  20. ilh November 16, 2015 6:56 pm

    @88 Meet me after the game at Gate 8 by the Box office, i will be wearing a Blue Shirt that says we are the best, you can’t miss it. you are all lip

  21. Realistic November 16, 2015 7:23 pm

    @ILH Agreed! The comeback will be I am also ILH (yawn).

    Anyway this is what Jay (88) wrote.

    GBR, YES… Best QB in the State. lol straight ounce.

    Get off the Xbox

    REALLY? Get off the xBox? That comeback is so tired. I recall seeing that back in 2006 before the two papers merged. Can you ATTEMPT to come up with something original Jay?

    Let me guess? Are you going to ask me something lame about Mr. Chang again? You barely have any more material than that and none of it is very original or creative. I am pretty confident I know what school you almost graduated from.

    Also, Jay (88) won’t show. He’s too busy at home thinking about what to write. He does need a lot of time for that.

  22. 88 November 16, 2015 7:25 pm

    You better not waste my time boy!

  23. Hauula 93 November 16, 2015 7:52 pm

    Good luck to both teams.. Everyone on these blogs are too funny…lol..

  24. Paper Crane November 16, 2015 11:10 pm

    Ever since MAXPREP listed Leslie Lee as Kahuku Red Raiders Head Coach like it was only up to this 2015 season 11th victory then only soon after the change was made to Vavae Tata;…lost for info and lack of new quick update sure compromises how their ratings are?

    Yet by next weekend that won’t matter cause it’s Tata and Hao Inc coming home with the victory.

  25. realistic November 17, 2015 11:05 am

    Jay (88) please stop puffing your small chest. We know your moms won’t let you out after dark. Remember the last time you left the house alone and that bully took your milk money and took your Meadow Gold POGS? That was a sad day for the 88 Familia!

  26. 88 November 17, 2015 11:25 am

    You remember the last time you left your tent alone and Mr. Chang took your cookies? That was a happy day for the REALISTIC Familia!

  27. chiefava November 17, 2015 12:30 pm

    ilh & 88

    hahaha too funny!
    maybe you guys should wear the mascot and pumped up your respected teams. GUARANTEED it’s going to BOOOST RATINGS my brahdas! Live Aloha and Alofaz to both sides. Holla!

    I was super happy until Jay (88) came in and ruined the party. He wanted to be the only Mary in the tent. And when he came in let me tell you, fireworks “blew” like Jay likes to say.

    C’mon Jay, don’t lie. It was a happy day for the 3 of us. Admit it!

  29. realistic November 17, 2015 1:48 pm

    Just to let everyone know. I know 88 personally. His name is Jay, he’s 5’5 and 145lbs. He never graduated and was supposed to be in the class of 85. He is currently unemployed, lives at home with his mom who I often visit, and lives off mom’s help and government assistance.

    In Jay’s spare time he enjoys walking on the beach with me or Mr. Chang. He enjoys watching football, especially the team that cut him a record 4 times (he got a special OIA exemption that allowed him to try out). He loves to interact with people such as myself who like to blow on instruments such as the flute, trumpet, tuba, etc.

    He has a grudge against me since I don’t make time for Jay anymore, hence his high activity on the blog.

  30. 88 November 17, 2015 4:15 pm

    Imagination time is only during school, However it is nice to see that you are applying what you learn in class. Keep it up.

  31. realistic November 17, 2015 8:14 pm

    Actually human beings imagine all day long, even through sleep. Could you be any dumber? I am becoming more stupid ever time I have to experience anything you write on here.

  32. Paper Crane November 17, 2015 9:20 pm

    he..he you went to school to eat lunch along with 6th period Drama/no acting like couldn’t remember his lines to tap dancing?

  34. 88 November 18, 2015 8:15 am

    That’s not good cause you already stupid. Now your more stupid? Didn’t think it was humanly possible for the stupidest person in this world to achieve a higher level of stupidity. I underestimated you.
