    In Response to Top 25 Boy's Soccer: Why? With not a lot of info? Because it's fun! Kind of like guessing the tournament winners, (which my D-1 picks were ultimate fail last year). I'm really just gues more »

    In Response to Re: Top 25 Boy's Soccer: I have to be honest.  Norwood is a really bad soccer team and if it took OT to beat them with them playing back to back days then that division is far worse tha more »

    In Response to Re: Top 25 Boy's Soccer: Dover-Sherborn with a 4-2 post season win over Lincoln-Sudbury. From what I've heard, the starters were all playing. Definitely very interesting - I'd be curiou more »

    MIAA's seeding system for lacrosse apparently ranks 2 other things besides W-L-T record: 1) wins vs other teams qualifying for the tourney in the division, and 2) a poll of the sport's committee membe more »

    I understand that in lacrosse, MIAA has moved away from simplistically seeding based on W-L-T only, and takes into account the strength of teams' schedules as well.  Of course there are still debates, more »

    What gives with the Globe's latest boys' soccer ranking?  Their own listing of records in league play shows: Walpole 7-1-2 Weymouth 7-2-1 Framingham 7-2-1 Wellesley 7-3-0 Needham 6-2-2 Newton North 4- more »

    Agree with your point about the strong D2 and D3 teams.  I wasn't implying that they should be ranked lower, just that the place to start is to look at who's leading from the D1-heavy leagues.  From t more »

    In Response to Re: Top 25 Boy's Soccer: In Response to Re: Top 25 Boy's Soccer : I agree somewhat with you, but this is a pretty blanket statement about D3 teams. Dover-Sherborn beat Wellsley 3-1 and more »

    It might make sense to start with which leagues have the most Division 1 teams (Bay State 9, Hockomock 7, Merrimack Valley 7), and the teams that are leading those leagues.  Then look at really good r more »

    Just read the Globe's latest list.  They seem to over-rank some teams that play mostly in Division 2 leagues, and under-rank the leaders of mostly Division 1 leagues.  They also seem to over-rank team more »

    NN sure seems like an interesting story.  On the one hand, 4 of their regular-season wins were their games against D2 teams, so one argument would be that with a 3-5-6 record in D1, they should not ha more »

    For D1 boys in EMass, now that quarterfinals are set, you can see that the current "seeding" only identified 6 of the remaining 16 teams.  Such a system should be able to average more like 12/16.  It more »

    Re: Carey and Herget divisions, Carey is the bigger schools, so it's not surprising that they tend to go deeper in the D1 tourney.  1/2 of Herget is D2 schools, and some of the D1s in that division ha more »

    Some purposes of school athletics might be to set examples for competitiveness and fairness, and develop ability. An improvement might be to require at least as many wins as losses in D1 games to qual more »

    Just looking at the d1 boys soccer tourney, for games through Nov. 8, the lower-seeded team has won 14 of 24 contests.  It's particularly notable at this stage, since as the tourney progresses, there more »

    Please correct/fill in below as needed.  Going alphabetically for the leagues in which most of the division 1 teams play (and many division 2 teams as well): Atlantic Coast - 3/7 teams qualified for s more »
