wayyyyyy to early to be thinking about that.

It's never too early. That's why they set goals before the season starts. Now our focus should be on the teams we play that week, but never too early. I mean the wall in the weight room says the road to Omaha begins here... (Put that in there for all the superstitious types. I'm not superstitious; I'm only a little stitious.)

Carolina remains number 4 in Perfect Game's rankings...and it's amazing that this is the case especially when they keep Virginia at number 1 after losing 2

Pretty ridiculous. If we were up there at #1 or #2 and had lost games like they have; we'd be lucky to be #10 still on these polls. Wtf?

Boyds World RPI & ISR both have us at #1. So that works for me.

These writers have their favorites. I seriously feel like these guys want an ACC team to win the National Championship more than they care about being correct in the rankings. At this point in the season, I'm sure you how you can have a team with two losses ranked above teams that are undefeated and coming off of a sweep over a top 15 team. Even if it doesn't matter (which it really doesn't).

Pretty cool to be the only undefeated team on that list though.

You may want to give some slack to Cal State because they have played a tough schedule so far. But UVA, give me a break.

Kendall Rogers is usually one of the best in the biz. He didn't make the trip to SC like Aaron Fitt. That being said his love of UVA is absolutely rediculous. And they are in love with Winston on FSU too. No team has a better resume than us at this point. No one.

Default Re: Season Rankings Thread...

http://www.boydsworld.com/ is a much more accurate site for raw #s etc.. not based off the "polls" etc. It counts what really matters such as RPI, ISR, etc.

The only thing it misses is the Neutral vs Home/Away field advantages.


Currently to be in the Top 8 at the end.. we need one of the following:

Quote:
25 home wins, 16 road wins, 1 neutral wins
26 home wins, 14 road wins, 1 neutral wins
26 home wins, 15 road wins, 1 neutral wins
26 home wins, 16 road wins, 0 neutral wins
With the Clemson sweep at home, neutral, and their place... we look good.

Default Re: Season Rankings Thread...

Some of these ranking rags are self serving and to an extent manipulate the system to satisfy their preseason predictions. For example, they picked UVA as being no. 1 this season. Of course they're not going to now recommend that they are less than that. They don't lower teams that play them and therefore make them look all the better for losing to a highly ranked team. Its incest at best.

Whats amazing to me is that Aaron Fitt said there was a strong push to put us at #1 but that the rest of our schedule was really weak. Isn't everyone's schedule weak at this point in the season? Also, we were the only ones in the top 5 that hadn't lost a game to weaker competition, and had 3 wins over a top 15ish team in Clemson.

UVA, FSU, and Cal State all lost today(Saturday)...we should be the unanimous #1 in the next rankings. I might also add that they were not to quality teams either...Duke, Maryland & Baylor, respectively.

For Baseball America I wouldn't be surprised to see, "Virginia won their series against Duke and therefore stays at #1."

I mean sure winning series is the ultimate goal but there is clearly one team with a better resume than any other team at this point. They just don't want to admit their preseason pick hasn't panned out as well as they planned yet.
