in the loss column:

USF lost to Northern Arizona 1-0
Gonzaga got pounded by WSU 4-0

Teams we have played:

TAMU beat Kansas 1-0
Penn state won its first league match with Michigan st. 1-0
Rutger beat UConn 2-0
Wisconsin beat Minnesota 1-0 the Big ten will be interesting this year
OK state beat Mizzou 3-1
SMU beat East Carolina 1-0
Northridge beat UC Davis 1-0


PSU tied Utah Valley 1-1


in the loss column:

Syracuse lost to ND 3-0


and just for fun:
Oregon State over Weber st 3-2


An interesting game Saturday should be St. Mary's –– Cal

here's something to keep an eye on besides the usual top ranking games--

Right now the WCC owns an 8-7-3 lead over the PAC10 in interconference games.

Three games remain, all today.

USF-Arizona
Santa Clara -Stanford
UP-UW

It will be interesting to see the final outcome for bragging rights.

BTW - did you know the only linkage between the WCC and the ACC this year is a game between Maryland and Gonzaga?

(UM won 2:0)

Stanford and Santa Clara tied 0-0 at the half, with Stanford outshooting the Broncos 12-0.

In the goalkeeper special for the day, Nebraska defeated Texas Tech 5-4 in OT. Nebraska led 4-2 with 4 minutes left, and TT scored twice to tie it (the second at 89:59), but then lost in the first two minutes of OT.

I've lost track of this a little. Am I correct that Notre Dame, BC, Stanford, UNC and UP are the top 5? Notre Dame and Stanford one and two?? If so, BC's loss would seem to drop them to 5, with UNC or us in 3rd. Correct??

I did some checking - Notre Dame has two losses, including one to UCLA. Stanford has two ties, against BC and UNC. UNC also has a loss to Va. It seems like that should make Stanford number one, unless I am missing something, with us having a reasonable chance to be in the top 4, maybe even number 2 (right now). Does that compute?

Notre dame has 1 loss. Here's the records and unadjusted RPI for the top 20. it is VERY close at the top.

The Notre Dame loss to VA was an exhibition game, which does not count. So Notre Dame does have only one loss for the purposes of RPI, playoff seeding, etc.

Thanks, Geezer. It really is close. It looks like we could win out and maybe still end up 5th if everyone else also wins out because of a weaker conference schedule.

The Notre Dame schedule shows a 4-1 loss to Va on 8/13 and a 2-1 loss to UCLA on 9/10. Maybe the 8/13 was considered a scrimmage or pre-season??

[quote="fan from afar"]Thanks, Geezer. It really is close. It looks like we could win out and maybe still end up 5th if everyone else also wins out because of a weaker conference schedule.

I'd say if we win out we'll be ahead of Notre Dame, at least, because their conference is much weaker than ours. Their URPI is already dropping like a rock with every conference win, whereas ours would drop slightly. Our ACC and Pac-10 rivals will raise their URPIs as long as they win out—but then, they are less likely to win out, as Boston College showed today.

Someone recently pointed out that the WCC is actually about tied with the Pac-10 in head-to-head wins. However, the WCC is well below the Pac-10 in total nonconference play.

Curiously, our URPI rose by .001 since Geezaldinho posted the chart, putting us in a tie with Stanford at this moment in time, and actually listed above Stanford on the basis, I would guess, of Element 1. But that will have no significance.

But does anyone really believe that UNC or UND would be given a #2 seed even if the RPI says that they should? It looks to me an awful lot like good ol' UP on the outside looking in ... again. Unless someone else loses again.

I know this is off an off soccer topic... But.....

Heck, if there is going to be pulled pork sandwiches, lets please do the same quality as years past. I little Lunchable mini meal kids sandwich with a 16th oz portion of meat on a squishy kiddie bun is not up to Trenchcoats food intake standards. Those pulled pork burgers with sauce choices from a few years ago were epic! Trenchcoat-

OK- Way off topic- I thought I was on the other board topic.... It's Monday and Trenchcoat is still in Weekend Pilot soccer bliss.....

USF and Santa Clara lost, UP won, so there are no bragging rights to be had this year.

'The Pac10 and WCC are even for the year - at least until the tournament.

The rest of today's ACC scores:

Wake over NC state 2-1
Miami over Duke 2-0 -- two scores in the last two minutes of the game.
FSU over Clemson 3-0


the BC loss dropped Stanford below UP in the unadjusted RPI. not by much, but it's still nice o see Smile

Idaho State and N. Arizona played in Idaho (pocatello?) until dark when the game was called. Since they just made it past 70 minutes, it's official at 0-0

I'm glad we don't have that worry anymore.

You know what time the sun sets. Why would you not schedule kickoff accordingly?

They were trying to start as late as possible to get more fans in, according to their coach in the postgame radio broadcast (their coach does postgame interviews --hint, hint)

Cloudy day made it darker than normal, and there was a 30 minute lightning delay (oh My!) They last had a game called for the same reasons in 1998.

the game was called at 72:31 when the ref announced he couldn't see any more. Clearly not our ref from last weekend. Rolling Eyes

I remember we used to cut it pretty close sometimes. They are looking for a donor for the lights. It's a naming grant opportunity...
