2016 Off the Block/Springbak National Media Poll

The Off the Block/Springbak, Inc. National Media Poll is the only national rankings in college men’s volleyball solely determined by media members. The 10 teams receiving the most votes are ranked in National Media Poll, while other schools earning votes but finishing outside of the top 10 are considered teams receiving votes. Teams eligible for this weekly poll must compete at the NCAA Division I-II level or must be in the process of transitioning to the NCAA Division I-II level. The voting committee for the National Media Poll is comprised of college men’s volleyball media members from around the nation and were selected by Off the Block. A new National Media Poll will be released on the Off the Block website every Tuesday during the regular season.
