PVB’s College Top 25 Composite Poll (Free)

CompFeatPic

Rankings differ based on the criteria used.

The bigger the differences in the processes, the more likely one set of rankings varies from another.

With the addition of PrepVolleyball.com’s College Top 50 this season, there are now five rankings that all have their own system to derive the final listings they do.

In addition to ours, there is the AVCA Coaches’ Poll, the RichKern.com Poll, the RichKern.com Power Index and the Pablo Rankings.

We aren’t going to go into detail on the criteria of each and what they are seeking to use. But the rankings vary enough that it gets interesting.

For instance, PrepVolleyball.com has Purdue ranked No. 9 in our Top 50. The other four have Purdue at 18, 23, 24 and 55. That’s an average of 25.8.

We have two teams not even ranked in our Top 50 that appear in the Top 20 in other polls.

The examples go on and on and on.

That’s why we felt there was the need for something.

We took the combined results of all five rankings and came up with our own PrepVolleyball.com College Top 25 Composite PollTM .

It’s like golf.

The lowest score wins, or in this case, the lowest average.

Below is our inaugural Composite Poll.
