USAU Releases Post-Stanford Rankings

Yesterday, USA Ultimate released the second iteration of the College Rankings that will ultimately determine the bid allocation to Nationals. Take a look at the current top 20 in each Division and see the projected bid allocation based on these rankings.

D-I Men’s

Projected Bid Allocation

Atlantic Coast: 3
Great Lakes: 1
Metro East: 1
New England: 1
North Central: 3
Northwest: 4
Ohio Valley: 1
South Central: 2
Southeast: 2
Southwest: 2

Notes

  • UMass is no longer ranked after playing with an ineligible player at Queen City Tune Up and having those results thrown out. If UMass plays well at Centex and Easterns, the excluded games are unlikely to affect their ability to earn a bid (although it may not matter as no other New England teams are in the top 20).
  • BYU is currently earning a bid for the Northwest, but if they choose not to play in the Series (since it is extremely unlikely accommodations would be made for their inability to play on Sunday), their bid would drop to the “next highest ranked team,” Florida State (Southeast).
  • UBC’s big weekend at Stanford vaulted them into the final wild card spot at #18. Currently, the Metro East and New England regions are receiving autobids.

D-I Women’s

Projected Bid Allocation

Atlantic Coast: 2
Great Lakes: 1
Metro East: 1
New England: 2
North Central: 2
Northwest: 2
Ohio Valley: 1
South Central: 4
Southeast: 1
Southwest: 4

Notes

  • Dartmouth leapfrogged Stanford to take the #1 spot after their thumping win over Superfly in the semifinals of the Stanford Invite.
  • Is the Northwest is facing a new 2-bid reality after years of 4+ bids?
  • Colorado State is the last team in the Wild Card spot. Can they hang on to a fourth bid for the South Central?

D-III Men’s

Projected Bid Allocation

Atlantic Coast: 4
Great Lakes: 1
Metro East: 1
New England: 1
North Central: 2
Northwest: 1
Ohio Valley: 1
South Central: 3
Southeast: 1
Southwest: 1

Notes

  • Connectivity is still quite low in Division III, so expect some changes.
  • The Atlantic Coast is one spot off of having five bids, but the new rule capping any region at four bids, regardless of the rankings, nullifies any chance of that.

D-III Women’s

Projected Bid Allocation

Atlantic Coast: 1
Great Lakes: 1
Metro East: 1
New England: 4
North Central: 2
Northwest: 2
Ohio Valley: 1
South Central: 2
Southeast: 1
Southwest: 1

Notes

  • Connectivity is still quite low in Division III, so expect some changes.
  • The New England region is sitting pretty with four teams in the top eight.
