Northern Sun D2 College Baseball Poll – 3/10/09

Northern Sun D2 Poll1

Finally, all 3 Division 2 college baseball polls have been released as this afternoon saw the release of the first National College Baseball Writers Association Poll – NCBWA Poll

The Northern Sun D2 College Baseball Poll is a combination of all 3 major rating polls (College Baseball News, Ping!Baseball & NCBWA).  It weights all the teams from 1-30, gives them an inverse number of points and then combines all 3 polls together.

The Northern Sun Baseball Blog recognizes Southern Arkansas as the #1 Division 2 College Baseball Team.  There are no Northern Sun Conference teams in the Top 30 this week but Concordia University did receive votes and would be ranked #31.

NCAA Division 2 Baseball Rankings – March 9th

The NCAA Division 2 college baseball rankings are out for March 9, 2009.

  • College Baseball News broke its tie at the top this week and their sole occupant of the #1 spot is Cal State Stanislaus. The Warriors swept a 4 game series this week against San Francisco State in convincing fashion.  The poll is still in a serious state of flux as 12 different teams that were ranked in the Top 30 last week have dropped out of this week’s Top 30.  The Northern Sun Conference has no teams in the Top 30 this week but Wayne State, Concordia and St. Cloud State all received 1 vote.  College Baseball News Rankings
  • Ping!Baseball kept Southern Arkansas at the top of their ranking, 1 spot ahead of Stanislaus.  The Muleriders swept 2 games from East Carolina but struggled in a 3 game series against West Florida.  That said, they did end up winning 2 close games to go along with a 6-0 blanking by the Argonauts.  There are no Northern Sun teams in the Top 30.  Ping!Baseball Rankings

Later today or early tomorrow, the National College Baseball Writers Association Division 2 poll will be release along with their first Regional D2 Poll.  I’ll include the link to that poll along with the new Northern Sun D2 Poll which will combine all 3 into a master ranking.

Northern Sun D2 College Baseball Poll – Premier!

Northern Sun D2 Poll1

Today marks the premier of my new Northern Sun Division 2 College Baseball Poll!

As of today, there are 2 primary Division 2 polls that are available – College Baseball News and Ping!Baseball.  These 2 services offer widely divergent views of the rankings in D2 college baseball.  As of next week there will be a 3rd weekly poll available from the National College Baseball Writers Association.

My goal will be to marry these 3 polls into 1 combined poll so that it’s easy to see where each team is ranked within the polls and to try and get a better ranking by combining these 3 into 1.  It will be kind of like the college football BCS where multiple polls are used to derive one national ranking.

The CBN and Ping polls are released each Monday and the NCBWA poll comes out each Tuesday so the Northern Sun Top 30 Poll will release each Tuesday going forward.  It’s pretty straight forward – if you are ranked #1 you get 30 points and the #30 team gets 1 point for each poll.

Congratulations to Southern Arkansas for being the first ever #1 team in the Northern Sun Poll!

NCAA Division 2 Baseball Rankings – March 2

NCAA Baseball Logo

The NCAA Division 2 college baseball rankings are out for March 2, 2009. 

  • College Baseball News has a tie at the top of the rankings as both Cal State Stanislaus and Southern Arkansas are tied for #1.  There is still a lot of movement in the rankings as previous #1, Lynn University, dropped to #12 after losing 2 games and teams like Tampa (#9 last week) and Cameron (#11 last week) have dropped all the way out of the Top 30.  The Northern Sun Conference’s Wayne State (3-1) has jumped back into the poll at #24.  College Baseball News Rankings
  • Ping!Baseball continues to recognize Southern Arkansas as the #1 team.  They did split this week with Culver-Stockton but did so in dramatic fashion as they got a no-hitter from pitcher, Hayden Simpson, who came within 1 out of a perfect game.  There are no Northern Sun Conference schools in the Ping rankings.  Ping!Baseball Rankings

Tomorrow will see the first release of the National College Baseball Writers Association poll.  Once that has been released, Northern Sun Baseball will be publishing our consolidated rankings that combines all 3 polls.  Check back for that tomorrow.
