Men DII College Rankings Week Oct 12

Last week we bailed on picking some games because we weren't sure about them, but of the games we had the guts to pick, we were right on 25 and wrong on four, which is a success rate of 86%.

Not bad, and we did get one winning margin exactly right and a couple of others one or two points off. So we'll take it.

The big question remains how long Iowa Central CC stays in this ranking or gets bumped to the DIAA ranking. We're waiting on an appeal on a forced move. 

UMass-Lowell makes a big jump thanks to a solid win over a ranked opponent, and an overall reassessment of where some of these teams are.

Kings Point won, but by a point. Do we move Marist up, or USMMA (Kings Point) down? Or bother? Or neither? We picked "both" but this is one of those cases where a slim victory can be kind of tossed out if the victory puts in better results later on.

Boston University beats Quinnipiac, and moves into the top 40.
