Not for the players, not for the coaches, and not for the analysts.
So while individuals and teams have been working to improve their game the past few months, RivalsHigh has been gearing up for its preseason Top 100 football rankings, which will be announced beginning July 25.
"It is non-stop," RivalsHigh Senior Analyst Dallas Jackson said. "It is just like the teams and players we get to cover, if our team of analysts chooses to take time off we will get beat. No one in this organization wants to be one to drop the ball."
Jackson has had countless talks on the phone, online, and in person with prominent coaches, numerous discussions with analysts and publishers in the Rivals network across the country and plenty of miles on the car, going to see dozens of top programs at 7-on-7s.
"The depth of our network - we have more than 40 high school experts covering schools in almost every state - helps make the RivalsHigh Top 100 the deepest and most complete rankings in the country," Jackson said.
And while this year's preseason rankings appear more challenging than ever - we challenge you to order a deep crop of teams in the top 20 - we're confident in the early placements.
At least for now.
That's the beauty of our rankings. Winning is never enough and no spot is ever secure. Each week we'll take a look at how the top teams played and reorder as necessary.
Until the games begin again this fall, the only competition will be in the form of analysis of our Top 100.
Don't worry, we don't mind. It's just part of the sport - one that doesn't seem to have an off-season anymore.
