Early rankings and these coaches voting are so sketchy.
Of note, Pepperdine is 0-6 and will lose to ASU and UCLA shortly. Unfortunately for them they are so over scheduled this year but you have to beat someone?
Hawaii is still in the rankings at 2-7. Ok, Hawaii were 2-6 when the vote was taken but 2-6 or 2-7. How can they still be be ranked.
On the other side, I heard St Marys beat what must have been a comatose Stanford 4-3. Great win but I looked and see they also lost to #43 Washington 5-2 and unranked San Diego State 4-3. Form has previously mentioned how these knee jerk responses to a single win really mess up realistic rankings for everyone. Great win for the Gaels but is that really indicative of their strength to the point they now get an at large bid off one win? Maybe they should throw out the high and the low when the computer kicks in to get a better read of team ability.
