Despite the college baseball season being 10 weeks old, there still was plenty of movement in CB360′s exclusive Compositional National Rankings (click on link for CNR archive) – including big jumps by multiple teams in both the Pac-10 and BIG EAST conferences (see highlighted notes below).   (front-page photo courtesy of Oregon)

Arizona State sits atop the CNR for the fifth straight week, but Texas has risen back to #2 (the Longhorns were #5 the previous week) while UCLA slipped from #2 to #6. Virginia remains in the #3 spot and Arkansas still is #4, while current #5 Georgia Tech, #8 Coastal Carolina and #10 Louisville each moved up one position. LSU has climbed from 10th to 7th, with Florida (#7 to #9) and its in-state rival Florida State (#8 to #13) both dropping back multiple spots.

The CNR’s all-inclusive ranking formula currently includes 14 different “ingredients:” six national polls (coaches, writers, BA, CB, Rivals, & Ping), five RPI-type calcuations (NCAA RPI, Boyds World Pseudo-RPI & ISR, W-Nolan RPI & NRPI) and three NCAA Tournament field projections (BA, SE-Baseball, & Rivals).

COMPOSITE NATIONAL RANKINGS (CNR) CRITERIA: CB360′s 100-point Composite National Rankings formula currently is centered around 14 core ingredients – combining a diverse collection of “experts” (ranging from coaches, media, computer calculations and projections) – to help provide a preview of teams that could be in the running for the 2010 NCAA Championship field (hypothetically 50 teams, plus 14 others from lower-rated automatic-bid conferences – those teams will be projected in upcoming CNR updates). Later in the season, other factors – such as  “last-10-games” records – will be included in the CNR formula, with CollegeBaseball360 set to begin generating its own projection of the NCAA field (based on the CNR formula).

Here’s the breakdown of the current “14-ingredient” CNR formula (three main areas):

Six National Polls/RankingsUSA Today/ESPN (coaches poll) … NCBWA (writers) … Baseball AmericaCollegiate Baseball …  Rivals and Ping!Baseball

Five RPI-Type Ratings: Official NCAA RPI … Boyds World ISR and Pseudo-RPI … and Warren Nolan’s RPI and NRPI

Teams receive points based on their standings in each poll/rating/projection (60 pts for #1, 59 for #2, etc.). For polls involving voting points (coaches and CB) and the RPI ratings, the CNR adjusts to reward teams that have larger margins in the voting/point totals (whereas two teams with nearly the same voting-point total will be closer in the CNR allotment for that poll). Note that strength-of-schedule typically is factored into RPI formulations … thus the actual SOS numbers are not used in the CNR when RPI already are in the mix.

The 14 core factors are averaged, with 40 points then added to each total in order to yield the 100-point benchmark.

Here are links to the 14 criteria used in the CNR:
