Marist is deeper than Stanford??? They lost to them 22-5!!
Marist (6) is deeper than Arizona State (2), Fresno State (2), and Long Beach (1) - combined???
Harvard, San Diego State, and UC San Diego are all deeper than Hawaii???

What a joke

The Honorable Mention Team is just too big and loses its importance with so many players. I understand that the sport wants to honor players at all of the schools, but 56 Honorable Mentions is just too many. I think that every Top 25 team had at least one player make one of the All-America teams.

And if you are going to give out 80 All-America awards, how does a team like Michigan only get two spots, a Third Team and an Honorable mention? Maddie O’Reilly was one of the top players in the country. Jeff even suggested that she might have been a finalist for the Cutino Award, but she only makes Honorable Mention? Obviously, the current system is flawed.

Let's assume this is true - then how did Marist, who finished 3rd in the MAAC, San Diego State (4th in GCC), Indiana (next to last in MPSF) and CSUN (last in Big West) get so many other coaches to recognize their quantities of superb talent at the minimum level required to be recognized? Is it just coincidence? Or maybe these coaches command so much respect amongst their peers that everyone blindly goes along with their nominations ---- but not too many as that would put their players on the 1st/2nd/3rd team.

Please - explain it to me like I'm 5 years old, how this happens without horse trading.

I thought 2Ply was a liquored up poster, but this one takes the cake.....

Do not insult us with this dribble.
