In previous years, we've featured the "Best of the Rest" in addition to the weekly Super 25 high school football rankings, a collection of teams listed alphabetically that didn't quite crack the Super 25. This year, the "Best of the Rest" is being replaced by "The Next 25." As if Jim Halley's job wasn't hard enough already, he'll now be ranking the nation's top 50 teams every week.
