Swimulator NCAA D1 Team Rankings (All Teams)

by Andrew Mering 14

February 04th, 2017 College, News

Swimulator calculates an invite power score for ranking teams by their chances to defeat other teams in an invite style meet (such as a conference meet or nationals).. This score is based on the power point scores of the top 3 events of the top 17 swimmers on a team from times so far this season (no diving included). The Swimulator top 25 rankings are based on this score. I dug a little deeper and grabbed the invite strength score for every team in Division 1.

These rankings are based on top times, which are mostly achieved at mid season invites, so the order of the top teams hasn’t changed too much since the last time we published the Swimulator top 25 rankings in January. However, this time the list includes every team in the division and I’ve added the ability to click each team’s name to pull up the Swimulator team stats. These include a ranking of the swimmers on each team by power points (the same methodology as the individual power rankings we published last week) and simulated conference and national win percentages.

Funny how UNC is placed significantly higher, yet were defeated by Duke a couple weeks ago.

My same observation about Milwaukee and Green Bay. GB men defeated Milwaukee by quite a large margin a few weeks ago.

UNC men will be in a tough battle to stay in the top-40 at the end of the year. They’ve got Cornell and Pacific hot on their tails! We’ll see how those rankings shake out at the end of the season

Aahhooo? I…um..well this doesn’t change anything! Like I said, the snapbacks stay fitted. We’ll see who’s wearing the white leather belts at the end of the season ha HA!!

Oh Andrew. I used to think you were the smartest swimming guy in the world. Then this article. I have no idea what’s going on in the diving world but Stanford women are gowing to win by a zillion points. No need for anyone to even watch the carnage.
