Glad to see the polls out again. The fun of it is that we get to state our opinions.

Can't help but point out an obvious mistake: UNC is not #13. They are Top 5 for sure.

I've said it in the past. MAWLL teams who don't travel to CA don't get the love. Out of sight, out of mind.

UNC beat JMU by 12. JMU beat Duke (#11) by 6. Duke beat Colorado (#6) by 1. Colorado beat UCF (#12) by 1.

The transitive property doesn't always work, but there's no doubt UNC is supremely more talented than #6, #11, and #12. They are on par with Delaware (lost 11-10) who came in at #4 in the poll. Note that an argument can be made that UD should be #1 as the defending champs until they lose, but that's what make poll watching fun.

I'm interested to see how UNC fares against UGA and Colorado State. They will be quality games.
Just glad to see a MAWLL team playing some interesting opponents in the regular season. Don't be surprised to see UNC-UD in the MAWLL regional finals (although UVA and VT may have something to say about that also).

Yes, UNC deserves a higher ranking. UNC is a very aggressive technical team. That being said, Delaware is a very aggressive team that makes UNC look tame, and I'd probably place Delaware tied for 1st. and UNC tied for 4th but again I see only MAWLL games as my daughter is in the MAWLL, so I'm biased that way. JMU meets Virginia Tech on the weekend of 3/24 and Virginia on the weekend of 4/8 so we will see how the MAWLL Chesapeake shapes up from that. My understanding from my daughter is that for the invitations to the regional tournament, only the first meeting of a team during the season counts (at least in MAWLL) so hope they are able to beat Tech and UVA.

I had a bit of a time determining which teams Florida has played and had no luck with the scores, but it appears that Florida has played Miami twice, Florida Gulf Coast, Southern Florida, Florida State, Florida Atlantic, and Central Florida. So, although this information may not be complete, and no one on this forum owes you an explanation, it appears that Florida's strength of schedule may be why they're not in the top 20.

Yes, Florida was not ranked due to their strength of schedule to date and loss to unranked FSU. They will have their opportunities against Duke and Towson in the coming weeks.

Don't be so snarky....and yes...and explanation wasn't OWED...but requested. My daughter explained it to me soon after I posted this. Excuse me for having a football mindset.

Lacrosse folks.....ugh!

And Florida is not that good. I would put them in the top 50. Somewhere between 35-50.

Yes, I watched them play Alabama. 9-6 is a very lackluster win. Which explains further why they are not ranked and get limited love. If they can play Duke tough or get a win, maybe they move up. But at this point they are the 4th seed in SWLL and the 3 teams above them have proved better. Good luck in the rest of season!

The majority of Stony Brook's wins are of the same fashion. Using YOUR logic....are they a lackluster team???

How Sway????
