Here is the first-ever Ultiworld College Coaches' Poll.
December 10, 2014 by Charlie Eisenhood in Rankings with 4 comments
We are excited to announce a new feature for the 2015 college season: a top 10 ranking as determined by top coaches in both the D-I Men’s and Women’s Divisions.
We selected coaches from across the country to share their list of top teams, which we compiled into a single list using a simple points system (10 points for #1, 9 points for #2, …). Currently, coaches from every region are represented in the Men’s Division poll; response rate has been a bit lower in the Women’s Division, where seven regions are represented. We will continue to add more coaches in the Spring when judging teams becomes much easier.
Without further ado, here are the results of the SAVAGE Preseason D-I Coaches Poll. The number of first place votes is denoted in parentheses.
