Conference Preseason Polls
« on: October 24, 2019, 10:46:59 am »
The season isn't too far away and most of us don't have the time to look up what teams are favored in each conference. I thought it would be a good idea to centralize all the polls.

It would also be interesting to look back later in the season just to see how things are turning out and the end result.

I went through all the leagues when I started this thread. No new polls. Obviously I'll continue to go through them as the days pass. Hopefully if "your" league posts their preseason poll, you'll post it for me. Thanks in advance!

Greek, if you have done this before, you may be aware that some conferences do not conduct a preseason poll...

I follow the preseason polls just as you do... here are the conferences that did not have a preseason poll last year:

ACAA  (I know, obvious)
CUNYAC
E8
NESCAC
NWC
SAA
SUNYAC

of course, that doesn't mean they won't have one this year ....CUNYAC, E8, NESCAC, SAA, and SUNYAC have not had one in each of the last 3 years...

out of curiosity, I went back and checked to see how each predicted poll champ last year did in the regular season conference standings...

Conference       Poll pick                     Actual Winner

AEC                Gwynedd                        Gwynedd Mercy**********
AMCC              PSU-Behrend                 LaRoche   (PSU Behrend finished 2nd)
ARC             Nebraska Wesleyan           Nebraska Wez *********
ASC E              LeTourneau                 Texas Dallas  (Letourneau finish Tie 2nd)

CCIW             Augustana                          Augustana ********
CSAC              Rosemont                       Cairn   (Rosemont finished 3rd)
GNAC             Johnson and Wales            Albertus Magnus (J&W finish tie 3rd)
HCAC              Rose-Hulman                    Hanover   (Rose Hulman finished 2nd)
Landmark       Moravian                         Drew  (Moravian finish 2nd)
LEC                 East Conn                    E Conn*****  tied for 1st with Keene St

NCAC            Wittenberg                       Wooster  (Witt finish tie 2nd)
NEAC            Morrisville                             Morrisville***********
NECC       New England College         New England College***********
Newmac          MIT                                           MIT***********
NJC                New Jersey City            New Jersey City********
OAC              John Carroll               3 way tie, Mt U, Mar, Cap... (JCU fin 6th!!!)
ODAC            Roanoke                  Randolph Macon   (Roanoke tie for 3rd)

SCAC              Trinity                   Tex Lu, Southwestern tie first (Trinity 7th 6-10)
SCIAC           Pomona-Pitzer               Pomona Pitzer******
SKY              Yeshiva                      Yeshiva******* tie 1st with Farmingdale St

USAC E        NC Wesleyan                        NC Wesleyan********
USAC W       Maryville                     Covenant  (Maryville finished 2nd)
WIAC          UW- Oshkosh                          UW-Oshkosh*******

So of 40 preseason polls last year, 20 correctly picked winners, 15 more had picks that finished 2nd or 3rd, 5 were way off the mark(ASC-West, MACF, MASCAC, OAC, SCAC)

Thanks and good work. I do know there were a few leagues that don't release preseason polls, but didn't know off hand.
