UCCS Fourth in RMAC Snapshot Standings

By Jared Verner published November 8, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - With one weekend left in the regular season for volleyball, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs sits in fourth in the latest RMAC "snapshot" rankings for the best overall athletic department the conference. The rankings use the same point system that was used in last year's All-Sport Competition Cup.

The Mountain Lions are fourth with 518 points with all six fall sport teams ranked in the top four in their respective sports. The point scoring is final in men's and women's soccer and men's and women's cross country, and points will go final this weekend in volleyball and football.

The final All-Competition Cup standings will include the four core sports of football or men's soccer, volleyball and men's and women's basketball. A school will then earn points from the top finishes in three men's and three women's wildcard sports, which are the other sports sponsored by the RMAC.

This is the first snapshot ranking to include the winter sports of men's and women's swimming and wrestling, which creates limitations in the current rankings. Because it's the first ranking to include the possibility for a school to score points in a maximum 10 sports, those schools with fewer wildcard sports (i.e. UCCS women's teams, Metro men's teams) will receive fewer points than those that have 10 sports competing between the fall and winter seasons. The rankings will begin to gain better accuracy with the start of the indoor track and field seasons, and accuracy will improve further in the spring season.
 
The snapshot rankings use the current RMAC standings and assign points from the scoring system as if the current standings were the final results. For men's and women's golf, the points are assigned using the cumulative scoring total from the teams in the RMAC events and ranking the teams accordingly. For men's and women's swimming, the conference lists from USA Swimming and used to assign points as if they were the final results. For wrestling, the national polls were used to rank the team, with all unranked teams in a hypothetical tie. When the dual season begins, the wrestling standings will be based off of win-loss record.

In the tables below, the bold points are those points that are scored. The columns in gray indicate that scoring is final. For schools that sponsor both football and men's soccer, the higher score is kept in the core sport category, while the lower score is moved into the wildcard category.
