Florida and Vanderbilt also were 1-2 in the CNR the previous week, while SC has slipped back one position and LSU moved up six spots (from #13) after an impressive sweep of Cal State Fullerton. Elsewhere in the top-10: Oklahoma dropped from #3 to #6 (after a loss to Arkansas-Little Rock) … Florida State bumped up from #5 to #3 … Arizona State dropped from #6 to #8 … Fullerton dropped from #7 to #11 … current #9 Clemson fell one spot … and #9 TCU slipped outside the top-10 (#12). In addition to LSU, Virginia has cracked the top-10 (rising from #11 all the way to #4) while Texas is back in the top-10 (after moving up two spots from #12).

We’re only one month into the 2011 season, but nearly all of the SEC’s 12 teams already have spent at least one week in the CB360 top-50 (all but Kentucky).

The CNR formula now includes Boyd Nation’s “Pseudo-RPI” (with the BN preseason predicted strength-of-schedule dropping out of the criteria). Note that other RPI-type factors (BN’s Iterative Strength Ratings, Warren Nolan RPI and NRPI, and even the official NCAA RPI) will be phased into the CNR formula over the next few weeks (RPI numbers will become more accurate/useful as the sample of games continues to grow).

The CNR’s current top-10 includes the four SEC teams, plus three from the ACC, a pair of Big 12 teams and the Pac-10′s ASU.

The CNR’s all-inclusive ranking formula – which will expand significantly as the season progresses (adding RPI/power rankings, NCAA projections, etc.) – currently includes seven different “ingredients:” six national polls (coaches, writers, BA, CB, Perfect Game, & CBL) and the aforementioned Boyd’s Nation Pseudo RPI.

COMPOSITE NATIONAL RANKINGS (CNR) CRITERIA:CB360′s 100-point Composite National Rankings formula currently is centered around seven core ingredients but in upcoming weeks will include upwards of 20 different factors – ultimately combining a diverse collection of “experts” (ranging from coaches, various media, computer calculations and projections) – to help provide a preview of teams that could be in the running for the 2011 NCAA Championship field (hypothetically 50 teams, plus 14 others from lower-rated automatic-bid conferences – those teams will be projected in upcoming CNR updates).

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. For the NCAA field projections used later in the season, teams will be awarded CNR points based on their respective seedings, “last in” and “last out,” etc.

Currently, the seven polls/ratings listed below are averaged, with 40 points then are added to each total in order to yield the 100-point benchmark. The CB360 Composite National Rankings will add factors to the formula throughout the 2011 season, with the additions to include various RPI/power rankings, NCAA Tournament projections and a late-season bonus/penalty for record over the past-10 games.

Here are links to the seven criteria currently used in the CNR:
• National Coaches Poll (USA Today/ESPN)
• National Collegiate Baseball Writers poll
• Baseball America poll
• Colllegiate Baseball magazine rankings
• Perfect Game rankings
• College Baseball Lineup rankings
• Boyd’s World “Pseudo-RPI” (this page updated daily)
