2017 South Atlantic
« on: August 31, 2017, 01:05:06 pm »
I thought we would start a new thread for 2017 with the preseason poll and rankings for the CAC.

No surprises at the top.  CNU picked to repeat with Mary Wash close behind.

There is a short video and an interview with CNU coach Steve Shaw embedded at the bottom of that article.

Let's bump the poor South Atlantic before it falls off the first page.  Pretty nice in-region road victory for Mary Washington, 2-1 at Lynchburg yesterday.  Matchup of projected #2s in their conferences.

Roanoke travels to Mary Wash today.  Should be another good in region match.

W&L picks up 2 good wins. Rolling SVa 7-0 after the short road trip to Buena Vista Wednesday and beating Capital 4-0 at home today. That closes out the non-conference schedule and we're on to ODAC play next Saturday with a 5-0-1 record.

few of these teams have some cupcake schedules...WPU has one legit win over etown. and same with stockton. i'm more of a NJAC tracker but i can tell you Newark is LEGIT. hopefully they get their first NJAC trophy. and a lot of these teams are teams i've never even heard of, which is awesome.

While I get that perhaps Willy P or Stockton's schedule hasn't been the best let's make sure we are fair with our assessments.  The overall record of Stockton's opponents thru 6 games is 15-11-13 in comparison the overall record of Rutgers Newark's opponents thru 7 games is 16-25-3.  I don't have the time to get into strength of schedule etc for every team but Rutgers Newark is off to a great start and is riding their ranking from the end of last year.  I really don't see an impressive win on their resume yet (only beat 2 teams with winning records; Nazareth 4-2 & Elmhurst 3-1-2).  Let's see how this plays out a little more before we dismiss or crown teams before more of the season is played.

i saw them play a few times this year so that's the only reason i claimed they were legit. they also have a pretty soft schedule but we will see when they meet Rowan what level they are on. Rowan is also very good now that Doherty is back

Randolph Macon cracks regional rankings even though they've played 1 team with more than 2 wins.  I get that they are 6-0, but that schedule is laughable.

Agreed.  I suspect that an unranked CNU would spank them.

Saturday they play W&L. That should provide some clarity.
