East Region Rankings
« on: December 12, 2005, 10:48:50 am »
Best teams in the East? :

Undefeated teams:
Hamilton (7-0, 4-0) W over Middlebury
NYU (6-0, 1-0) Ursinus is the only decent team they've played


Cortland (6-1, 5-0) W's over Brockport, Alfred, Ithaca.  Loss to Trinity (Conn)
Fisher (4-1, 3-0)  W over Geneseo, L to Baldwin-Wallace
RIT (4-1, 2-0) W over Oswego, L to WPI
Utica (6-1, 5-1) W over SUNYIT (2), L to Union
Oswego (6-1, 5-1) W over Geneseo, Naz.  L to RIT
Rochester (6-2, 4-1) ** Only regional loss to CMU, not true regional team
Union (3-2, 2-1) W over Williams, L to CMU and Middlebury (combined records of 16-1)

The only teams with decent out of region wins are Hamilton (Middlebury), Union (Williams), and maybe UR (John Carroll).

Round 2 of my rankings (which you have every reason to totally disregard):

1 - NYU ( 12-1, beat UR, lost today in 2 OT to CMU)
2 - SJF ( 8-2, only losses to top 25 teams)
3 - Hamilton ( undefeated but needs to play someone -- someone will be Utica on Tuesday)
4 - UR ( losses to NYU, CMU, and Wittenburg. )
5 - Cortland ( impressive, lot of upper classmen)
6 - Utica ( hung with Fisher, could make a move up the rankings with a win over Hamilton)

I gotta believe they are the best teams in the region at this point.

After this weekend

Fisher (Wins the Chase at UR)
Cortland (on a roll, and Trinity's win over Amherst validates their only loss)
NYU (Compare their schedule to Cortland's - no contest)
UR
Utica
Hamilton (TKO, Giorgi not playing - Stay tuned)

SUNYIT?

Let's try this again, going into this weekend's games:

1 - Fisher ( loss to Naz weakens them a bit, though)
2 - NYU ( barely over Utica.  Win @ Wash U a big deal )
3 - Utica ( on a roll.  Win over Hamilton would have meant more if the Continentals had their full squad )
4 - Cortland ( Only losses to decent teams: Trinity and Oswego )
5 - Rochester ( looks like they lost too much to be an elite squad )
6 - Oswego ( avenged their loss to SUNYIT.  Could be trouble for Cortland in SUNYACs )

My best guess right now:

1- NYU (two losses, one in 2OT at Carnegie-Mellon the other at Wash U.)
2- Fisher (loss at home to Nazareth drops them)
3- Cortland (only two losses were nailbiters against Trinity (13-3) and Oswego (14-3)
4- Utica (for now)
5- Oswego (and rising...game coming up against Utica is huge, Lakers are hitting their stride)
6- Rochester (tough conference will keep them from rising too much this season)

I agree with you for the most part, Bamm. I don't think we can rank the 2nd best E8 team ahead of the best team in the SUNYAC(Cortland) who may be even better than Fisher. That loss at Union looks worse for Utica with every Dutchmen loss. They've played two competent teams on the road so far; they lost at Union and beat cross-town rival SUNYIT. Needless to say, I'm not betting the house on them.

My predicted Region Rankings

1. NYU
2.St. John Fisher
3. Cortland St.
4. Hamilton
5. Rochester
6. Oswego St.
7. Utica

Then after that it takes a significant drop.  Right now I would have Brockport at Eight.  Thoughts

I agree with most of that.
I think you could take C-state, Fisher, and NYU and put them in any order, after that I think it is right on

The Official Rankings:

1 - Cortland
2 - Fisher
3 - NYU
4 - Hamilton
5 - Rochester

Gotta figure that the other contenders are Oswego and Utica.

They're pretty accurate. Can we get the guys who do the basketball ones to do the football rankings?

I agree, although I don't consider it a difficult task this season.  There simply aren't that many top-tier teams.  You could put Cortland, Fisher, and NYU in any order and it would be fine by me.

As last year, I think it will come down to Fisher vs a quality SUNYAC team- this year Cortland.
Beating the crap out of each other, and then the winner running into a buzz saw.

Although last year, they weren't beating the crap out of each other, Potsdam was just beating the crap out of Fisher. From what I saw of Cortland this year though, I think Fisher will match up with Cortland much better than they did with Potsdam last year.
