GRR: Men DI Rankings
Now that the two latest D1AA finals are done we have new spring rankings.
Back for April's DIAA rankings for the spring.
Really, the results this spring have shown us that many of these teams are very close to each other. The three semifinals (how can you have three semifinals?!?) this past weekend showed us that. Every game was in doubt late.
Not a lot of changes in our DIA Rankings this week.
In the end, everyone did just about what the rankings would expect. Cal is a great example of that. Ranked #5 by GRR and #4 by the entire DIA voting process, Cal beat #7 Army a week ago 31-14, and then lost to #1 Navy 33-28. Central Washington, ranked #2 by GRR, beat Army 36-14.
We've been a bit quiet about ranking D1A teams this winter/spring but here's an update.
Right now Navy remains atop the rankings but there are teams circling. Key among them may well be Cal, but we could also point to Central Washington. We wanted to get these rankings out before CWU hosts Army on Wednesday just so we'd potentially have a reason to change them again.
This past fall we conducted a rankings experiment, ranking DIAA and NCR D1 and D1A teams all together.
