After the opening weekend of the 2012 college baseball season, there was little significant movement in the CB360 top-50, based on its Composite National Rankings (CNR) formula. In fact, two of the national polls/rankings do not even update their rankings after the opening week (see below; note that all polls used in the CNR take into account games played through Feb. 19).

The formula for the current CB360 Composite National Rankings (CNR) now includes seven ingredients: rankings by USA Today/ESPN (coaches), NCBWA (writers), Baseball AmericaCollegiate Baseball magazine, Perfect Game and College Baseball Lineup, along with preseason projected season strength-of-schedule (from Boyd’s World; used for small bonus in formula).

Five top-10 teams (four from the SEC) retained their same CNR position from the preseason top-50: #1 Florida, #2 South Carolina, #3 Stanford, #9 Georgia Tech and #10 LSU. Three other five top-10 teams moved up  a spot – current #4 Texas A&M, #5 Rice and #7 Arkansas – while North Carolina slipped from #4 to #6 and Texas moved back a position to #8.

Scroll down for complete listing of the current CB360 top-50. Also see below for listing of teams that have made the biggest jumps and drops, plus newcomers and departed teams.

CB360 also uses the CNR to project the 2012 NCAA Tournament field (updated below), taking into account the CNR along with various conference preseason prognostications from around the world of college baseball.

Updated NCAA field-of-64 field projection (based on the CNR and preseason conference rankings, from league coaches and national media):

• 49 of the top-50 teams listed above (all but Arizona State, which is ineligible for the NCAAs)
• Two more additional at-large teams North Carolina State and Cal Poly
• 13 more automatic qualifiers: UNC Wilmington (CAA), San Francisco (WCC), Stony Brook (AE), Texas State (SLC), Oral Roberts (Summit), Wright State (Horizon), Princeton (Ivy), Canisius (MAAC), Bethune-Cookman (MEAC), Monmouth (Northeast), Austin Peay (OVC), Navy (Patriot) and Alcorn State (SWAC)

 

COMPOSITE NATIONAL RANKINGS (CNR) CRITERIA: As the season progresses, CB360′s 100-point Composite National Rankings formula ultimately  is centered around 15 core ingredients – plus a bonus/penalty factor based on record over final-10 games. The CNR combines a diverse collection of “experts” (ranging from coaches, various media, computer calculations and postseason projections) – to help provide a preview of teams that could be in the running for the 2012 NCAA Championship field (hypothetically 50 teams, plus 14 others from lower-rated automatic-bid conferences).

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 various RPI-type 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 used only early in the season (SOS are not used in the CNR when RPI already are in the mix). For the NCAA field projections, teams are awarded CNR points based on their respective seedings, “last in” and “last out,” etc.

The polls/ratings/projections are averaged, with 40 points typically then added to each total in order to yield the 100-point benchmark. Early in the season (projected SOS) and late in the season (final-10 games), a maximum bonus/penalty of 0.3 (SOS) or 0.5 points (final-10) is factored into the formula (in that case, 39.7 or 39.5, rather than 40, is added to the poll/rating/projection avg.).

Here are links to the eight criteria currently used in the CNR, as of Feb. 22, 2012:
• National Coaches Poll (USA Today/ESPN), preseason/no update after opening week
• National Collegiate Baseball Writers poll
• Baseball America poll
• Colllegiate Baseball magazine rankings
• Perfect Game rankings
• College Baseball Lineup rankings, preseason/no update after opening week
• Boyd’s World preseason projected season strength-of-schedule (bonus points)
