Looks like MIT's SOS and OWP killing them

AND YET GORDON OF OCURSE IS RANKED #8....

Luckily Endicott plays Gordon still this year...

Endicott absolutely deserves to be in.  Shocking..... Gordon is right where they should be.  They are 2-1 against other regionally ranked opponents - EConn st was a pretty easy win. Tough match win against a good Wentworth side and a close 1-0 loss to the defending champs.

The 2-1 vs regionally ranked teams doesn't count until next week so that would not factor in for this ranking.

Gordon and Wentworth have no reason to even be in the top 12....ECONN is ranked way to high most likely because of their wins over UMASS Boston and Wesleyan. Gordon will not move up the rankings even if they keep winning. One more loss to Endicott and they will be off the map...The MIT ranking is very surprising most likely due to their horrible SOS but they did draw Brandeis

I understand. I'm just stating it as evidence that they deserve inclusion in the rankings.

Endicott has a sub .500 SOS at .487.  I'm not convinced anything else matters so long as a team's SOS is under .500 which seems to be a deal breaker.

EDIT:  I notice that MIT got in with a sub .500 SOS at .497.  So, there is no .500 SOS threshhold, but it is extremely hard to overcome.

Midd SOS not bad . . . . 586.

I wish calculating this was easier cause I would have pounded the under if that was the vegas line given that they faced a team that is 1-14. it was a road game so that helps with the multiplier. just goes to show you that you can easily manipulate you SOS to make it appear you play better teams than you actually do.

Playing a 1-14 team doesn't help with or without a multiplier. Still hurts a team's SOS either way. It's when you play a good team on the road that you get "extra" points.

10. MIT                     11-1-1   
11. Wentworth           11-3-0   
12. Bridgewater St.    11-2-1

Wesleyan and Wentworth most likely eliminated from Pool C consideration with today's losses.  As they drop out of the top 12, Endicott and Williams should move in.  Endicott's SOS should have been brought up over 0.500 with today's game.
