GRR: Men DI Rankings
So we delayed our rankings of D1A-level teams because the official D1A rankings came out this week and we were waiting for them.
Seemed only reasonable as we vote in that ranking. Below is the ranking that includes the current D1A teams plus the Liberty teams, which were in D1A before moving to NCR, and are eager to be ranked against this top level, so that's where we rank them.
The official D1A ranking, voted on by conferences and the media, is back with this week's Top 25.
These rankings are used, in part, to decide playoff matchups. Leading the way right now is Cal. The votes have also concluded that while Lindenwood may well have been the best team last season, with the players they graduated, they drop down a shade, to #4.
Dartmouth moves to #1 after beating Army, but will have to back that up to stay there.
Bowling Green is still in a strong position and there are some key games coming up in the Chesapeake that could shake up these rankings. Bowling Green vs U. Notre Dame, Clemson at Tennessee, and Salisbury at Rowan are all coming up this weekend.
Brown gets a move up after beating Yale.
Indiana and Penn State won well against ranked opponents, and so did UCLA and all of those teams move up a little bit.
