IQA Rankings

Looking at the new and updated IQA rankings today, I can almost finalloy respect them. With Canadian and Australian teams being an exception, (I don't think McGill or the Melbourne Manitcores deserve to be in the top ten) here is what the rankings look like.

1. Texas A&M
3. Texas
4. Maryland
5. Boston
6. Baylor
7. Emerson
8. Miami
9. Marquette
10. Texas State
11. Ball State
12. USC
13. Hofstra
14. Silicon Valley
15. Michigan
16. Kansas
17. Bowling Green State
18. Villanova
19. Michigan State
20. Tufts

Here are the IQA's rankings mixed with the current (February 27th) Eighth Man Rankings with point value being given to placing.

1. Texas A&M
2. Texas and UCLA
4. Maryland
5. Baylor
6. Boston
7. Miami
8. Emerson
9. Marquette
10. Ball State and USC

Just another example of how a mixed ranking approach- a formula and a poll voted on by quidditch experts is better. In my opinion, both polls point out each others flaws and support each others strengths. A serious coaches poll would be awesome too.
