2022-2023 NCAA Men's Power Rankings: Final Edition

As in earlier years, SwimSwam’s Energy Rating is often someplace between a CSCAA-style doubles meet rating and a naive estimate of the NCAA ending order. Nonetheless, as that is our closing energy lineup earlier than the championships, these mirror a particular NCAA end line. These rankings are subjective in nature and are a place to begin for dialogue. If you happen to disagree with any workforce’s standings, be happy to make your protection in our remark part.

Braden Keith, Spencer Penland, Robert Gibbs, Yanyan Li, Sophie Kaufman, and Anya Pelshaw contributed to this report.

Earlier Ranks:

About that point. The Ladies’s NCAA Championship is on report, and the boys’s match in Minneapolis is simply over 24 hours away.

Within the newest version of the Males’s Energy Rankings, we’re seeing some modifications general, with the Gators rising to 2nd and the Longhorns dropping to 4th, most notably Florida and Texas being relocated. Whereas we count on Texas to outperform their pre-dive seeds (seventh), Cal can be powerful to beat Florida and Arizona State.

Our writers additionally promoted Indiana to the highest 5 in opposition to NC State, and their diving prowess anticipated them to beat the Wolfpack, whereas Auburn and Louisville made large jumps for eleventh place after robust convention championship performances.

A couple of spot has dropped, apart from Texas, Ohio State, Georgia, and Georgia Tech – however as our ballots present, there’s a number of disagreement within the 10-15 vary, they usually’re all going to land on a) who hit the suitable and land on b. ) who can step up and carry out within the morning.

#25: NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRELAND – (PURPOSE: 25)

Chris Guiliano is the dash star who made an enormous break for this workforce. -YL

Web page #24: ARIZONA WILD CAT + (PREVIOUS RANK: NR)

With Brooks Fail gone, the accountability for scoring falls on the relays and diver Bjorn Markentin. -JS

#23: GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS ↓2 (PREVIOUS RANK: 21)

Three swimmers had been seeded to attain, however there was no margin for error within the qualifying rounds with none relay for factors. -JS

#22: MIAMI (FL) HURRICANS ↑1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 23)

As at all times it is all about diving – Max Flory leads the assault and Alabama’s Mohamed Farouk is available in with scoring potential. -JS

Web page #21: LIONS OF COLOMBIA ↑1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 22)

Jonathan Suckow scored Columbia’s all 30 factors in 2022 and will rating the same level this 12 months. -SK

#20: LSU TIGERS ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 19)

No relay races and it hurts that the sprints are busier than normal Brooks Curry‘s–and by extension LSUs–ceiling -SK

#19: Missouri Tigers ↑1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 20)

Missouri scored very low all 12 months. They constructed it across the sleeping Clement Secchi to show up some apple carts in Minneapolis. -UK

Jack Dahlgren and Clement Secchi are a stable duo for the Tigers. -SK

Jack Dahlgren, Clement Secchi and Ben Patton have had some actually robust seasons thus far. -YL

#18: MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS – (PREVIOUS RANK: 18)

That is the place relays actually come into play. Minnesota certified for just one relay occasion, which was not anticipated to attain. The groups forward (Michigan, Missouri, Alabama) are all anticipated to attain not less than three objectives. -SK

#17: MICHIGAN WOLVERINES ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 16)

No Mitchell, no Callan however Gal Cohen Groumi might very properly find yourself with three ‘A’ finals. -JS

#16: ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 15)

Charlie Hawke has had an ideal season and is able to do some harm at 200. Victor Johansson added time (for USC) final 12 months and failed to attain, which is one thing to contemplate. -JS

#15 GEORGIAN BULLDOGS ↓2 (PREVIOUS RANK: 13)

Georgia, earlier this season Ian Grum, Bradley Dunham, Wesley Ng, and so on. -YL

#14: OHIO STATE BUCKEYES ↓3 (PREVIOUS RANK: 11)

Ruslan Gaziev’s absence from the Canadian tryouts exhibits that every one is properly on this NCAA match. -YL

#13: TEXAS A&M AGGIES ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 12)

The workforce depends closely on freshman Baylor Nelson, however he handed each take a look at this 12 months. It will be an enormous enhance if all 5 relays bought factors. -JS

#t-11: LOUISVILLE CARDINALS ↑6 (PREVIOUS RANK: 17)

After rating them very low all 12 months, swimmers like Denis Petrashov, Abdelrahman Elaraby, and Dalton Lowe actually impressed me within the ACCs. -YL

#t-11: BROWN TIGERS ↑3 (PREVIOUS RANK: 14)

How a lot of Auburn will stay in storage after an unimaginable present on the SECs? -SK

#10: KNIGHTS OF VIRGINIA ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 9)

They’ve traditionally outperformed their seed by a major margin, however nonetheless being seeded for less than 26 particular person factors is a surprising quantity. -JS

#9: VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES ↑1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 10)

The Ramadan/Coll Marti 1-2 hit has grow to be one of the vital underestimated punches within the nation. -JS

#8: STANFORD CARDINAL – (PREVIOUS RANK: 8)

I am unable to wait to see how this workforce improves on what they did final season, particularly in relay races. Leon MacAlister flies below the radar. -JS

#7: TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS – (PREVIOUS RANK: 7)

Sufficient of the Tennessee taper jokes – the ladies stored their insemination occasions comparatively good final week and I feel the boys will be capable of try this too. Jordan Crooks and Gui Caribe have taken the UT relay to a different degree and I see potential for enchancment in lots of their swimmers (e.g. Jarel Dillard, who was thirty eighth in 100 chests however was an A-final final 12 months). -YL

#6: NC STATE WOLF DRIVE ↓1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 5)

In contrast to most others, I stored NC State within the prime 5. I do not suppose Indiana’s diving will make up for what the Pack will do within the water. -JS

#5: INDIANA HOOSIERS ↑1 (PREVIOUS RANK: 6)

NC State was forward of Indiana all season. The Wolfpack will compete for each spot with Cal, ASU, Florida, and Texas – Indiana’s dive is extra exact than a lot of the pool races that smash NC State’s path. -SK

I help Sophie’s view – NC State’s competitors is simply too crowded they usually’re additionally lacking out on some swimmers like Michael Cotter and Quintin McCarty that might herald further factors. In addition to diving, Brendan Burns he is additionally very brief on 100 flies for IU and in the event that they put him within the 200 medley relay (*cough* within the Massive Tens). -YL

#4: TEXAS LONGHORNS ↓2 (PREVIOUS RANK: 2)

Do I feel Texas will do higher than 169.5 seed factors? Sure. I feel it could be silly to not count on that at this level. However with an excellent dive workforce by historic requirements, it appears tough for them to achieve greater than 400 factors to complete within the prime 3. -UK

Did I hesitate for a second as I pushed Texas out of the highest three? Sure, it felt virtually uncomfortable in a method. However reality be instructed, rating Texas greater than mine (#4) can be primarily based solely on popularity, not what they really did within the pool this season. Cal, Arizona State and Florida have been higher this 12 months, and there is actually no method round that. Nonetheless, Texas will tremendously enhance on the psychic chart, however they’re thus far behind proper now that they may enhance a ton from seeding they usually’re nonetheless not even in competition. -SP

#3: ARIZONA STATE SUN DEMONS – (PREVIOUS RANK: 3)

Arizona State struggled to seed on the NCAA Championship final 12 months. Sure, this workforce is completely different, it has pleasure and momentum. It has depth, it has some nice new second-period additions. I do not suppose they will compete with Cal for the title however I might be shocked in the event that they drop under 3 at this level. -UK

The State of Arizona has arrived. They broke Cal’s five-year successful streak within the Pac-12s and are second on the psychological chart in scoring. Regardless of not having the diving support they will rely on and their Pac-12 performances are just below a faucet, Arizona State seems set to interrupt into the highest three this 12 months. -SP

Do not peak on Pac-12s. I repeat, DO NOT peak on the Pac-12s. (I do know Bowman stated they would come with every part within the NCAAs, however I am nonetheless slightly cautious). -YL

I feel it’s totally seemingly that ASU as an entire carried out properly within the NCAAs however nonetheless scores lower than the psych estimates as a result of it is a fast-swimming workforce all 12 months in comparison with another groups (like Texas). -JS

#2: Florida Gators ↑2 (PREVIOUS RANK: 4)

Florida is just seven factors behind ASU and I feel they’ve extra room for enchancment than the Solar Devils. If MacGuire McDuff is nearing his greatest time within the 400 free relay, I feel they’re favorites to win that race, and this is only one instance. One thing tells me that is their 12 months. -YL

#1: CAL GOLDEN BEARS – (PREVIOUS RANK: 1)

Sure, Arizona State received the Pac-12s, besides, Cal tops the standings after we bought the psych report. Whereas it is onerous for me to think about Arizona State outperforming their seeds, I feel Cal most likely is, particularly given their historical past of reaching the highest within the NCAAs. -SP
