Just a question for the pollsters. What is the thought behind having Cal Baptist ranked at 15? Don't get me wrong Cal Baptist is a good team and maybe they deserve to be in the top 20? But, they have one good win on the season and that was an early win against Northridge - there next best win might be a 1 point victory over Bakersfield. Lately they have lost to Michigan and San Diego St. who are ranked below them. They have played some tough games and have kept them close, is that why they are getting so much love?

Not a big difference but they're #16. Only team in that last grouping of 5 that has a win over a Top 10 team. Granted they had one-goal losses on the road to Michigan and SDS but #19 Santa Clara has wins over both SDS and Michigan, so its not always simple algebra as many things contribute.
