Women’s Soccer Wins Regular Season AAC Championship


Recommended Posts

Heading into this season, USF's team was the 17th most successful in the nation over the past 5 years. This season's performance will likely elevate that ranking slightly as well. That type of sustained success usually gets recognized after a while in the form of better seeding. We will see if I am wrong, but I am going to stand behind my prediction that a 10-0-1 USF squad will get a top 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament this year. Now the ladies just need to take care of business and win their last 3 games to see if my prediction comes to fruition.

Somebody check ikea because the women might need a bigger trophy case.

Where have I heard this before?  Either we'll lose or win out and screwed by the selection people.

Of course, the first season that we have a shot at a top-4 seed is the season in which all of the games will be played at one, centralized sit, thereby eliminating the home turf advantage. Such is the luck of USF athletics.

Santa Clara is currently ranked 9th this year and 11th over the past 5 years.   So your prediction is that 2 G5 teams will get Top 4 seeds?   Sounds ambitious, but good luck.

The US Soccer Coaches rankings are outdated and don't include their loss to BYU. Santa Clara is actually ranked 16th in the latest rankings from Top Drawer. 

This season is complicated by the dearth of out-of-conference games in which to judge the mid-majors against the P5 teams, and from the split schedules between the fall and the spring. However, given the lack of OOC games, a lot of the P5 teams were unable to pad or bolster their records with wins over smaller opponents. It will be interesting to see how the committee decides to seed the teams.

The team currently sits at #15 in the recently (and irregularly) released US Coaches Top 25 (up 6 spots from #21 in the March 21 poll), to go with a #9 RPI and #13 Top Drawer ranking. They close out the regular season Sunday at Cincinnati. The comes the conference tourney. This will be an interesting stretch where they will have to play 3 games in 6 days after only playing one game per week all season.
