Men's College D1A Rankings

Final 2018-19 D1A Rankings

Well we took a break through the playoffs because we don't have a lot of games going on, of course, and the rankings pretty much held up throughout the tournament.

But now we cap off a really exciting season with the final rankings. But it should be noted that there is a significant gap between the top 10-12 teams, and the rest. Varsity, elevated club, and other supported programs are pulling away from what are just very good club teams. It's no insult to tell a very good club team that it's nowhere near as good as Life or Cal—just look at the scores.

As the same time, more programs are getting support. We used to say there were two teams and then an enormous gap.

No surprise that Life moves back to #1. Cal drops to #2. Saint Mary's or Lindenwood could have been #3, and we pick Saint Mary's based on the repeated close losses to Cal rather than just the one close loss for Lindenwood vs Life. It was a tossup, though.
