They have ranked every D-1 program with a short blurb on each. Here is how we look this season.
Miss St 89
Ark St 259
Robt Morris 262
Stony Brook 214
St Fran PA 333
Boston U 205
Holy Cross 215
Schedule looks very favorable and PL looks weak.

Thanks ’90. I would expect BU to be in the top 150 or so with all of their talent if they can put it together at all. I also think (and hope) that Bucknell, HC, and American are better than these predictions.
In the OOC, LaSalle is a pretty big wildcard with a bunch of transfers. They could be quite good if it works or a disaster if not. One of their supposedly impact transfers has already left the program in the pre-season.October 21, 2016 at 3:10 pm #28909
Great work, 90!
And, not to be overlooked: Loyola #304
304. Loyola (MD)
Not enough pressure defense and not enough toughness inside to put the Greyhounds higher. They’ll be battling at the bottom of the Patriot League.
Average PL Ranking: 262.7October 22, 2016 at 12:26 am #28916
It would be really nice to get a win in the first 4 games. Maybe we knock off one of the Ivies or pull upset at Miss St.October 24, 2016 at 8:58 pm #28971
KenPom has also published initial rankings for the upcoming season. Time to re-up!! Sneak preview – he has us at #142, followed in the PL by BU at 162, and Bucky at 179. Bottom half of PL is… not pretty.
For OOC schedule, our top opponents:
La Salle 100
Miss St. 102
For those into such numbers – beating Princeton at home on 11/20 would be a NICE boost, I think. PL comes in at #26 conference, while Ivy is at 14. Ivies have at least a handful of teams with very high expectations.October 25, 2016 at 3:39 am #28979
I would also recommend checking out collegesportsmadness.com. They rank the Top 144 teams nationally. Lehigh checking in at 119 there, the only PL team on the list. Very good synopsis of Lehigh there. Good discussion of lineup options (Holba vs going small).November 1, 2016 at 2:34 pm #29112
