Men Fall DII College Rankings Week #2

Norwich moves up.

Here's the latest Men's DII College rugby rankings, and we've got some shifting.

Vermont lost a couple of games, and while those losses were very close, in this deep a ranking that can drop you significantly. Norwich bumps up, and so does Northern Michigan. Western State dropped School of Mines two weeks ago, and they go from unranked to #12. Southern Illinois is another high joiner.

We drop USM&T (need some results!), Molloy (lost twice), Buffalo State (ditto), and St. Louis (harsh, because they're close). And we add in a bunch as we expand to 50.

Keep an eye on Spring Hill. They've lost games, but to strong DI teams. It will be interesting to see where they fall. Right now we're not penalizing them for those losses because they've been competitive.
