Hofstra is Ranked in the USA Today/NFCA Coaches Softball Poll
In the poll at https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softball/d1/rpi Hofstra entered in 25th and James Madison is third in Receiving Votes, which is 28th. Hofstra's strength of schedule got worse, so in the RPI they fell out of the Top 25. http://gohofstra.com/news/2018/4/17/soft...h=softball is titled "SB: Hofstra Ranked #25 In National Polls." There are three polls, two of which the NCAA doesn't list, and Hofstra is Number 25 in every poll.

RE: Hofstra is Ranked in the USA Today/NFCA Coaches Softball Poll
Hofstra swept Drexel and James Madison swept Elon with 5 of the 6 wins by at least 7. James Madison won one game 5-2. On Saturday and Sunday, Hofstra is at James Madison. Hofstra is 15-0 and leads by 2 games. Assuming the tiebreaker is head-to-head, Hofstra would clinch the regular season title if they win 2 out of 3, which would give them a 3 game lead with 3 games left. 23.4% of runs allowed by CAA teams are unearned, which is almost three times the percent of runs that are unearned in MLB so far this year. James Madison has had 42.9% of their runs allowed be unearned compared to 16.3% for Hofstra. In the NCAA statistics through April 18, James Madison had the highest percentage of runs allowed that were unearned. Hofstra was 12th out of 296 teams in fielding percentage. Fielding could make the difference in a close game. In the 2015 CAA Tournament, James Madison led 3-2 when Hofstra hit into a game-prolonging error and went on to hit a 3 run home run.

James Madison swept Hofstra in a regular season series and is ranked, with Hofstra having dropped out, but if they make a poll after the regular season on Tuesday, James Madison will drop out, and I hope Hofstra will re-enter.
