Nutmeg, you obviously are intent on making a point, as you continue to request the SOS rankings. What is it?

Not sure how strong this schedule is.  It does include two teams ranked in the Top 25 at the end of last season...

Loras (11)
Chicago (18)

I would say that is an average to slightly above average schedule...


Above average?  This one is pretty solid, Nutmeg.

In regards to out of conference games:   @ Loras, traveling to Georgia for Ogelthorpe and Berry, @ UWO.  Even with U of Chicago at home is no "gimme".     Throw in conference foes Elmhurst (2x) and North Park... it could/should be on the top 10-15 schedules next year.

Okay, so the rankings I pulled were from the data sheets generated 10/27/14...   ughh

It's not bad if you sort them out by region, but to mesh them together on the national scale is a pain in the arse.

I don't think they changed too dramatically, but if Nutmeg or Flounder wants that data, it is there at the link.

I am just curious what the SOS's were before the tournament started as playing the tournament games obviously increases the SOS.  Just want to see how it played out.  In all honesty, I am not trying to make any point.  I am just trying to see regular season final SOS's.....

Are BF and Nutmeg one in the same?  Someone asked Nutmeg what his real point is and now BF responds out of nowhere with the above.  What point are you all trying to make?  If it is that NESCAC schools have by far the toughest schedules in the country then rest of us will just concede that and move on.

My post was removed... NCAC, I would also like to see it.  I am not trying to prove anything.  Why do you always insinuate matters? If I wanted to say the NESCAC had the hardest schedules, I would have done so.  I don't need to beat around the bush. Look, you often attack many and gave a bunch of NESCAC posters multiple negative scores, and several NESCAC posters picked up on that without reporting you. You were on a mission.  So, please withhold from your negative comments. It really doesn't do anyone any good.

BF, your post was removed?  For what reason?  Was it profane?

As far as reporting me, did you bother to notice the number of negative points I have racked up?  The feature is there.  If someone doesn't like a post he or she can give someone negative or positive points.  I went days and days without posting and was getting negative posts daily.  Are you going to intercede on my behalf?  Post something that has some substance and that isn't just cheerleading or that isn't completely transparent.

Are you and Nutmeg one in the same or not?

First, I didn't know you were the Judge or the great prosecutor, second, I don't have to answer you but, just to satisfy yourself, I am not Nutmeg, third, you probably deserved the comments for the actions you took against NESCAC posters just out of spite.....

First, thanks for the link, Off The Pitch. Second, while I am a touch late to the party, I am my own man...sorry to disappoint. BF probably has more money than me so maybe I should be him....haha.. Third, it helps to look at these regionally.....

New topic: What programs do we know that have good youtube channels showing goals, highlight videos, etc.? I know it doesn't get any better than Messiah's because they upload literally every goal scored and have every goal scored since I think the 2008 or 2009 season on youtube which is pretty darn cool.

There have to be more though. I never hear or see much coming from the northeast. Do any NESCAC teams have them? With all their success recently (last 6 years), Amherst should definitely have a good one. Williams should with their trips to the Final 4...I think these channels are really good as recruiting tools.
