For the record, the top 16 in the Coaches' Poll accurately predicted the 16 first rounds given out this year. (Assuming, of course, you remove Cal BP who chose not to apply.)

I find this fascinating given the discussion from earlier in the season about how it was not a measure...etc.

True, but the discussion from Repko and Hester simply suggested that they would vote differently for the top 25 than 1st rounds. No one made the claim that the Top 25 rankings couldn't predict the 1st rounds, just that those who vote in both processes don't want to give the impression that they vote the exact same way in both.

that's fair - I wasn't trying to argue or start a debate of any sort. I was just commenting on how accurately it predicted them! I thought it was neat.

The Hanson team rankings also accurately predicted all of the first rounds, minus Cal BP. The Bruschke team rankings (same page) did not do quite as well, ranking a team that missed (Emory JG) 7th, a team that hit (Wake CM) 36th and a team that did not apply (Trinity BH) 12th.
