After glancing at the board today and looking at the Rivals State Rankings post (http://rivals100.rivals.com/viewrank.asp?ra_key=2471&Year=2010) I started wondering why the east side of Michigan is so heavily recruited compared to the west side. As of late the west has been pretty dominant in the state finals (7 state champs last year or 8 counting TCSF) or has held there own in some of the higher divisions. It also has had some highly ranked teams nationally (Muskegon and Lowell). I was just wondering what people thought was the reason for this disparity? If it is just better talent, then why doesn't it translate to the field?
