The Atlantic Cost Conference (9) edged past the SEC (8) as the conference with the most teams in the current edition of the CB360 Composite National Rankings (CNR) top-50, following play during the week of March 5-11. The top-3 teams (Florida, Stanford & South Carolina) in the CNR remain unchanged, while current #4 North Carolina and #7 Rice have swapped positions from the previous week. Arkansas (now #6) and Arizona (#9) both bumped up a spot, while Florida State made a move from #9 to #6 and Cal State Fullerton (#13 to #10) re-entered the top-10. Texas A&M slipped back from #5 to #8 and Georgia Tech tumbled outside of the top-10 (#8 to #15).   front-page photo courtesy of NC State 

CB360 Composite National Rankings (2012 season) …
• Preseason … • Update #2 … • Update #3 … • Update #4

Carlos Rodon sparked NC State's series win last weekend at Georgia Tech, helping vault the Wolf Pack to #23 in the CB360 top-50.

Surging Kevin Plawecki and his Purdue teammates have moved up to #21 in the CB360 top-50 and have extended the program's best start in more than 50 years to 12-1.

The CB360 top-10 now includes three teams from the SEC, plus two each from the ACC and Pac-12, and one each from the Mountain West, Big 12 and Big West. When projecting the 16 #1 seeds in the NCAAs, based on the current CNR, there would be five from the SEC, four ACC, four Pac-12 and one from the Mountain West, Big 12 and Big West. Half of the current top-50 come from either the ACC (9), ACC (8) or Pac-12 (8).

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 six criteria currently used in the CNR, as of March 5, 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
• Boyd’s World preseason projected season strength-of-schedule (bonus points)
