That's my intent. And that probably makes the point as best as anyone can.
If there are JV teams who happen to play against varsity competition in varsity tournaments, they'll be counted in these ratings. It's made even worse in some places where one of a team's best players may be both on the JV and Varsity A teams and, throughout the season, plays on both of them. It's a problem I see as intractable that I simply don't want to attempt to solve myself. I know my limits.
And for the record, there are some edits that should be coming to the FAQ--that is one of them, so thanks for drawing my attention to it.

University, North Hollywood, Los Alamitos, and Capistrano Valley are all new or rebuilding programs and their "A" and "B" teams should be labeled accordingly. I think Orange Lutheran is "A" as well, and Torrey Pines B and Rancho Alamitos A are close enough to their previous tournament lineups, I think, so those are fine.
"Edison" to my knowledge contained one A team member and 3 B team members and should probably be labeled as "Edison B." Arcadia A and B should be Arcadia B and C, I believe. I have no idea which Rancho Bernardo is which, as they moved people around, but I'd guess A-C at this tournament should really be B-D in the rankings. "La Jolla A" at this tournament was the exact same team as "La Jolla B" at UCLA, so there should really be a "La Jolla C" as well, though that team apparently contained about 1/3 of the scoring of La Jolla B at Caltech. "Santa Monica" at this tournament should be "Santa Monica B" as well.
Hopefully this will make some of the California rankings less screwy, as Rancho Bernardo/Arcadia/La Jolla/Edison/Santa Monica/Torrey Pines shouldn't really be rewarded/penalized (whichever the case may be) for games in which the vast majority of their A team did not participate.
That explains a lot--thanks. I had thought the screwiness was just from it being an A set, but that description helps things immensely.

I have what you've sent me in my e-mail inbox. They're coming--I promise. Of course, they're anything but complete for the whole tournament, but I'll enter what I've got.
