Men DII College Rankings Week Oct 5

Well guess what, we've got College DII rankings right here.

It's been a few weeks since you saw any, so don't be surprised that you will see some major changes.

Such as ...Furman, Vermont, and especially Kings Point move up, especially Kings Point. 

Bethel drops down a bit as Grand Valley State beat them. UMass-Lowell moves up, and we have Marist, Pitt State, Colorado Mesa, and Angelo State all jump in.

The big movement in these rankings is in part because the conferences are getting more competitive. This is probably a direct result of the quality of high school rugby players going to these schools. You can't just roll through a conference anymore; you might be a group with a solid group of athletes, but that's not enough. Another team could unseat you fairly quickly.
