  • Zip_ME87 changed the title to 2022 Season Polls / Rankings
  • 3 weeks later...

Thursday night was not the best night for the other MAC teams.   Northern Illinois lost 3-2 to San Francisco.   Western Michigan lost 2-0 to Butler.    Chicago State was a pleasant surprise as they battled the Northwestern Wildcats to a 3-3 tie.   Indiana vs. Clemson is on ESPNU right now (7 to 9 pm eastern)

Isn't it far too early in the season for RPI calculations to be meaningful?  I believe those RPI rankings should be more accurate in ~2-3 weeks.  Lots of teams batting 1.000 and lots of teams batting .000 right now.

In the coaches poll, Akron went from not ranked to #14 in the country

   I was amazed by Stanford's jump.  Not ranked in the preseason poll.  #3 now in regular season poll.

Are there only 8 voters in that poll?  The '1st vote' indicator is a rather low total.

As others have stated, I realize RPI doesn't mean that much this early in the season, but I find it interesting to watch the changes as the season progresses.
