Well... this makes the Florida State, Santa Clara, Stanford, USC, Oregon State, and Washington matches more interesting... Wait! I already knew that. As for that second poll... Behind UW?! Really? Red Card!

Actually, the second poll looks like last year's end of season poll to me, As it mirrors the tourney results.

I find it hard to believe that teams with 5 or more losses would be ranked ahead of the pilots for this year.

UW with 9 losses is just not credible.

I realize that I forgot to mention UC Irvine. But, I just want soccer season to start! 11 days, 23 hours, and 56 minutes according to your countdown!

OK, here's topDrawers real rankings for the year, at least his top 25.

In this one we are ranke 7, same as NSCAA.

UCLA tops the list this time. Pretty interesting considering the season they had last year and the new coach. I think TDS is banking on the recruiting class pulling them through.


Other WCC schools are BYU at 17 and SCU at 25.


School Conference Overall Conf.
1. UCLA Pacific 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
2. Notre Dame Big East - National 0-0-0 0-0-0
3. Stanford Pacific 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
4. Boston College Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
5. North Carolina Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
6. Virginia Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
7. Portland West Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
8. Florida State Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
9. Maryland Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
10. Ohio State Big Ten 0-0-0 0-0-0
11. Duke Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
12. USC Pacific 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
13. Florida SEC Eastern 0-0-0 0-0-0
14. Wake Forest Atlantic Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
15. Georgetown Big East - National 0-0-0 0-0-0
16. Texas A&M Big 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
17. BYU West Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0
18. Marquette Big East - American 0-0-0 0-0-0
19. Washington Pacific 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
20. South Carolina SEC Eastern 0-0-0 0-0-0
21. Oklahoma State Big 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
22. West Virginia Big East - American 0-0-0 0-0-0
23. California Pacific 12 0-0-0 0-0-0
24. Penn State Big Ten 0-0-0 0-0-0
25. Santa Clara West Coast 0-0-0 0-0-0

He also has San Diego making the tournament field.

Full Rankings: Tournament 64 Rankings

purplegeezer - pretty safe to say UCLA's incoming class needs to kill it for them to be even close to #1.

The NSCCA has UCLA picked at 16 for the preseason. I'm predicting they will finish higher than that.

They ended up with a 15 RPI.

Based on my "refined" RPI as applied over the last four years, which takes into account game locations and regional biases, TDS appears to be overrating the ACC (7 of the top 14 teams) in comparison to the Pac 12 (5 of the top 23 teams). The ACC may be slightly stronger than the Pac 12, but not to the degree that TDS thinks.

I'm going to have some fun this year, if things turn out right, because I'm going to run my refined RPI in parallel with the NCAA's RPI and report on the differences.

Looks like historical reputation was a major factor in placements. USC as the third highest PAC 12 team Top Drawer's poll???? I'll bet a phliney that won't be the case at the end of the season.
