Men D2 College Rankings for Fall 2022 Week 2

We are still very early on in the season, so the early results have a big effect when matched against teams that aren't playing yet.

This coming weekend we have about 70-75 men's D2 teams in action so we'll see a lot more adjustment next week.

Big movers include Southern Nazarene, which is a school-supported team that is still playing a D2 season and is listed as a D2 team by NCR even as they won't play in the postseason. So we've got them as a D2 team in the rankings (same for Trine, actually). VMI and Southeastern Louisiana also join. We have bit more about SLU in an adjoining article. But it's all about results. And if your team isn't sharing results, it's tough to produce a ranking on no information.
