Swimulator Mid Season Rankings for D2 Conferences

by Andrew Mering 2

January 17th, 2017 College, News

I’ve run the Swimulator conference simulation tool for D2 conferences to see how the standings look now based on top times (minus diving). If you like this sort of thing, the D1 rankings (big conferences, small conferences) and D3 rankings (part 1part 2 ) were posted recently. D2 is is not being split into two parts due to the smaller number of conferences.

Mid season rankings are a flawed predictor of conference results. Different teams approach in season meets in different ways. However, teams tend to have a consistent approach to mid season meets every year, so comparing this season’s mid season rankings to last year’s rankings at this point and last year’s actual conference scores can give a decent idea of what to expect in February. Teams that picked up a bunch of points last year are more likely to do the same again this year. Teams that saw a big drop off are more likely to be caught by their competitors again. Teams that have noticeably more or less points this year are in a position to perform differently this year than last.

There has been some significant conference realignment in D2 over the last year so a few of the last year sections are a bit off. Also Swimulator only does one division at a time, so conferences with NAIA, D3, or D1 teams are missing teams.
