Swimulator Top 25 Rankings for All 3 NCAA Divisions

by Andrew Mering 6

January 03rd, 2017 College, News

Swimulator has a top 25 rankings feature separate from it’s national meet simulation feature. The top 25 rankings are based on a power point approach. Power points have fewer problems with unreliable mid season relay rankings or swimmers at mid season meets messing around in non primary events. For example, perennial powerhouse Texas A&M women are ranked 7th in the current national simulation due in part to their current low relay rankings, but are 5th in the power point based top 25 rankings.

The full invite and dual meet team strength power point scores are available by clicking the links in the header for each division below. These power point scores are division specific. The fact that the Emory women’s score of 710 is better than the Stanford women’s score of 684 doesn’t mean Emory women are better than Stanford. It means the Emory women are better than the Stanford women relative to their competition. Also on the Swimulator page, each team name links to a full breakdown of the power point scores of each individual swim for the team and a ranking of the strength of the swimmers on that team based on times this season.

Alright it’s beginning to not be funny anymore. UNC men have continued to fall in the rankings to now be UNRANKED??? They’re SO GOOD and have swum SO FAST this season. I’m telling you, just wait until they take off the drag suits they’ve been wearing.

You are too funny

Any chance of doing a D1 Mid-Major ranking?

Not sure about these rankings (at least the D2 Men). I can’t see a way how Nova Southeastern finishes outside the top 4 at NCAAs, but in these rankings they fall at 21.

Not just Nova’s men. Their women. And FSC’s men and women. And Tampa’s men and women. My guess is maybe not all of the winter invite results were added to the simulator before publishing the results?
