I need to make a few things clear. I am extremely dependent on the results being input to the system in a timely fashion. At times, matches are missing from the previous weekend, so the following week, those will be in the system. Secondly, I have not really validated the data to make sure I am including the right scores 100% in the right ways. What I mean is that there are certain schools within the data that have several spellings for names or may be misspelled somewhere. I will probably get around to fixing these issue after the season, since things are hot and heavy right now.

This is basically a test to generate some interest in a different way of looking at the teams. I welcome any criticisms and have openly responded to several questions asked at zootennis.com.

In the interest of generating some discussion, I want to show the NEXT 20 teams here. I think this is were the styles will start to diverge more and more. Anyone who has followed the scores over the last two weeks knows that the teams from 21-40 can beat many of the top-10 teams on the right day. These mid-range upsets could really be the difference of where a team heads come tournament time.
