JMU is 7? They beat UNC and UNC has 2 losses already. Virginia had a good win against Cuse but lets not get carried away jumping up 5 spots.


Worst of all the polls.

JMU
BC
Virginia

All belong in the Top 4.

Northwestern too high.

Penn State not Top 20.

Cornell , Denver, Virginia Tech should not be ranked.





I can guarantee you that JMU and Virginia will not be top 10 in polls come May, BC the only one of the three that a chance of being top 5


BC will not be in the top 5 at end of year either as soon as they start laying their ACC schedule and not the cupcake non conference games they will be exposed.

Im not a fan, but if Florida can continue to play like they did against UNC they will have a legit shot this year. as good as the offense was that day the goalie played out of her mind in that game and was the reason they won. games like that are hard to duplicate.

As the saying goes... Defense wins championships. As we are seeing there are a lot of teams that can compete this year. Maybe more than ever. Down the stretch, once we are in the quarter finals the team that play the best defense will advance. A hot goalie can make the difference in a tight game vs two competitive teams. Looking forward to it, should be a lot of fun.

Penn State, Cornell and Denver are not Top 25 Teams.

Maryland should not be number 2.

North Carolina too high.

JMU too low.

A few others teams out of place.

I guess you are one of the no nothings who does not value Defense. not going to win many games giving up 17 goals. Offense was not the problem. Go take a course or something and learn something.

It will be fun watching how this season plays out. It's exciting seeing so many different teams and their players work hard and experience success. What is a quality win - beating a top ten team? Then Maryland, UNC and Florida only have one quality win at this point, also. Good for the teams like Stony Brook, Navy, JMU etc. that are inserting themselves into the conversation. They certainly don't have the advantage of numerous "top recruits" and benefit of the doubt that other teams get year in and year out, but here they are competing with and beating top teams. Not sure why that bothers some of you so much.

The difference with SB is they will never play another competitive game until the NCAA tournament and a good chance that no team they play will be in the top 10 at the end of the regular season ,curious if that will have impact on seeding. As far as BC I just think they will have a difficult time when they get to their in conference schedule not sure why you think that means their ranking bothers me.

With 13 (did they go to 14 this year?) automatic qualifiers which teams will get an at large bid and who will be left out?

America East: Stony Brook

Atlantic Ten: UMass / Richmond?

ACC: Maryland (only kidding) BC / Virginia / UNC?

Atlantic Sun: Jacksonville

Big East: Florida

Big South: High Point

Big Ten: Maryland

Colonial: JMU / Towson?

Ivy: Penn / Princeton?

Metro: Fairfield

Northeast: Bryant

Pac 12: Southern Cal

Patriot: Navy / Loyola?

Southern: ??

At large:

Virginia
UNC
DUKE
Syracuse
Notre Dame
Georgetown
Northwestern
Hopkins
Penn State
James Madison / Towson?
Princeton / Penn? Maybe Dartmouth, Brown or Yale?
Stanford
Colorado
Navy / Loyola?

Any other teams have a chance?

Some good teams will be left out this year and getting to the final 8 will be tougher than usual.

Don't forget the committee always has favorites and if you aren't one of them, you better win out and not go the at large route

All the teams you just mentioned are trending up the polls, except Penn State and Duke. Polls all had Penn State about #4 to start the year, that’s a big tumble if they don’t make the playoffs. At the rate they are going, they will likely fall of top 20 this week, just as Duke has done.

Some good teams will be left out this year and getting to the final 8 will be tougher than usual.








Bold prediction that teams on that list that won't make it are: Duke, Penn St, Stanford, Princeton, Colorado


All the teams you just mentioned are trending up the polls, except Penn State and Duke. Polls all had Penn State about #4 to start the year, that’s a big tumble if they don’t make the playoffs. At the rate they are going, they will likely fall of top 20 this week, just as Duke has done.


Polls have nothing to do with selection.

I'm betting Princeton and Duke get in. Either Colorado or Stanford but maybe not both.

Penn State will have a tough time. There schedule gets tougher as the season goes on.

The NCAA does not take the polls into account. Strength of schedule, common opponents, significant lobbying by schools and cost of travel are all issues.

Bold prediction indeed. I knew Princeton and Duke were strong programs but I didn't realize how strong.

Duke has made the NCAA Tournament 19 times in the past 22 years.

Princeton has made the NCAA Tournament 23 times in the past 26 years.

I think they will both make it this year.

Duke didn't make it last year, which is the most relevant of those past 22 years. They got destroyed by an "ok" Stanford team and look very average in general. They have their difficult ACC schedule still to play. I don't think they will get an at-large bid this year. The Ivy other than Penn looks to be down this year. Princeton squeaked out a 12-10 win over Brown?? Princeton will likely get in on reputation, but they are on the edge of deserving to IMO.
