Using the men’s soccer team ratings, I have put together a projection of the national tournament. Check out who is playing who, and let me know what you think the rankings should be… right now…
|1||Northland International University|
|8||Clearwater Christian College|
Notes: Brutal first round match up, if this is what happens. I believe that Clearwater will eventually move up into the 4-5 seed range, but the computer, as of right now, is not convinced this is the same Clearwater we have expected to see in years past.
|4||Ohio Christian University|
|5||North Central University|
Notes: Ohio Christian University ranked this low is brutal for Northland. I think they will eventually move above Manhattan, but for now, Ohio is ranked here. North Central is an up and coming team this year, and I actually like this spot for them.
|2||Moody Bible Institute|
|7||Lancaster Bible College|
Notes: Lancaster is an interesting team. They seem to be coming together late in the season, which makes ranking them very difficult (Kind of the opposite of Manhattan). Moody should not worry too much here, but Lancaster is a well-organized team.
|3||Manhattan Christian College|
|6||Ozark Christian College|
Notes: Ozark is the big question mark. The coaches don’t like them, but the computer does like them. What do you think? Manhattan is on a downward spiral right now, therefore we will see where they bottom out.
