      On the men’s side there are 3 significant drop offs that are interesting.
      4 to 5 (How do you not think Williams is the 5th best team? This is shocking to me)

      10 to 11

      18 to 19 (not as large in numbers, but still large in percentage drop)

      On the women’s side, the big drops are,

      3 to 4

      10 to 11

      14 to 15

      Also, based on the bottom 5 or so ranked teams, either coaches know less about women’s teams or there is greater diversity in talent.

      Lou, i remember watching you predict notre dame to win 8 games this season……..please don’t post here again, as anything you say will plainly be considered random bumbling from a senile old man.

      is wheaton just in terrible shape this year too? i’d expect to see them on this list for the men’s side

      Notre Dame could still win eight games but it might take until 2009. Let’s face reality . . . it’s like a man falling from a 20 story building and as hes going by every floor he’s saying, “Hey I’m doing OK so far.”

      Here’s what I told the guys:

      This poll is far superior to the other poll recently released. There was a lot on angst and anger directed to the other one, but I don’t think too many negative things can be said about this one. Props for whoever decided on the system

      the coaches poll is better than the cs power ranking system, the only problem is that teams that have few times or arent even on the times sheet get screwed since most coaches just go off of that and dont actually know much about the team.. for example santa cruz should be higher on both the mens and womens, but they werent on the sheet..
