Following the first full week of the 2012 college baseball season, there was slight movement among the top-10 teams in the CB360 Composite National Rankings – as #1 Florida, #6 North Carolina and #7 Arkansas maintained their same spots, while others swapped positions: current #2 Stanford and #3 South Carolina, along with current #4 Rice and #5 Texas A&M.

Elsewhere in the CNR top-10, Georgia Tech bumped up from #9 to #8 (while Texas plummeted from #8 to #19) and LSU slipped from #10 to #13, with the new teams in the top-10 being Florida State (#11 to #9) and Miami (#12 to #10). The CNR top-10 now includes four teams from the ACC and three SEC (plus one each from the Pac-12, Conference USA and Big 12).

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)
