While we all obsess over the official rankings, we all know they don’t always tell the whole story. When you factor in some DIII lowballing, conservative Big Ten judges and the occasional (frequent?) Carol-ing in the SEC, a teams’ ranking doesn’t always accurately reflect how they’ll match up against another squad. So, we present to you our Power Rankings, our de facto way of ranking who’s hot and who’s not and what you can expect from our top 20 teams.
The reveal of NQS shook up the rankings a bit this week, and I shook mine up a bit as well. We were cruelly reminded over the past two weeks that no team is immune from the injury bug, and the trajectory of a few top teams have unfortunately changed because of it. However, with a new No. 1 this week, the excitement continues to build toward a postseason that will be here before we know it.
