NCR D1 Fall 2023 Rankings Week 7

Brown reaches #1. But for how long?

We didn't think we'd unseat St. Bonaventure for losing to Navy 15-3, but in the end we did.

We did that not because St. Bonaventure lost to a Navy team that has been dominant through the fall; we did it because Brown beat #8-ranked Iona. If we're going to look at a team beating a #8 team and saying "eh, what have you done for me lately?" seems a bit wrong. 

(Remember this when we decide to keep a #2 team at #2 when this happens again.)

Dartmouth slips down after a loss to Fairfield while Southern Nazarene edges up. Despite an independent schedule, we think SNU will get into the NCR playoffs (if they want it). There are two at-large positions in the NCR D1 playoffs and SNU should surely get one (and we think Notre Dame College gets the other).

By the way, when we listed our combined NCR D1 and D1A sugested ranking last week we forgot about Brown! Sorry about that.
