I don't know the secret formula for determining the regional rankings, but I've always managed to come pretty close at least with the top 5 teams just by using my limited brain power. Here's this week's best guess:
- Alderson-Broaddus (18-2 vs. Division II teams, 2-0 this past week)
- Gannon (16-2, 2-0)
- Virginia Union (16-3, 1-0)
- Kutztown (16-3, 2-0)
- Indiana, Pa. (15-3, 1-1)
- Johnson C. Smith (15-7, 1-1)
- West Va. State (16-4, 2-0)
- Edinboro (14-5, 2-0)
Mercyhurst (14-6, 0-2), Elizabeth City State (15-6, 1-1), and West Liberty St. (12-5, 1-1) should battle for the final two spots in the top 10.
The biggest games this week include Edinboro at Mercyhurst, West Va. State at 16-4 UPJ, and Alderson-Broaddus at West Va. State.
On Wednesday I'll post the exact rankings and the top 8 teams' schedules for the week.
