Men DII College Rankings Week #5

Bethel moves up. So do others.

Many, many changes in the rankings thanks to a couple of weeks' data.

The MARC teams get a big boost, in part because the 2016 conference winner, Rowan, has been tearing it up in DI. At some point, that has to indicate that this is a very, very competitive conference. So the undefeated teams get a big boost.

Top 10 teams Middlebury and VMI lost recently and drop. Hartford put in two superb results against ranked opponents, and move up. Southern Indiana is out because, actually, they are officially NSCRO (sorry, SIU, you're great and all but it's a different competition). Millersville and Marist come in thanks to solid results there's also good news for UW-Milwaukee and Bethel.
