CSCAA NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Team Rankings Supported by TYR

TYR Logo

TUCSON – A knock-down, drag-out dual meet between Texas and Georgia two weeks ago produced some of the most exciting races so far this college season. By winning the meet, the Texas Longhorns were able to keep their No. 1 spot in the College Swimming Coaches Association of America’s coaches poll, while Georgia moved up to the second spot. The poll is produced in conjunction with Swimming World Magazine.

The goal of the CSCAA rankings committee is to produce an in-season poll of the 25 best-performing teams in rank order at the time of each poll. The poll is not designed to predict the results of the NCAA Championship, but rather which teams would win head-to-head against other teams in the country.

Specifically, the poll committee does not differentiate between the types of meets, or the status of a specific team in terms of rested versus unrested, when considering votes. Further, rankings are only based on performances that have taken place up to that point in the season, with an emphasis on action from the previous poll.

Swimming World has been invited as a media member to participate in the polling process, and has a vote in each poll. Jeff Commings serves as Swimming World’s representative on these weekly conference calls.
