GRR: Men DI Rankings
As usual we have some big movement with conference playoffs, and we have to say we're not surprised that happened happened.
Some decisions have to be made this week as we vote in the DIA rankings.
Some key changes in who is in what division influence our rankings.
The Lonestar Conference is DIAA now, so their two best teams do move into the Top 40. That decision is bolstered by some independent observations that tell us these teams are solid, and would give some teams outside of the conference a bit of a run.
The big question this week is what to do about the teams in the Chesapeake.
Maryland's defeat of Mount St. Mary's isn't that much of a surprise, but with Maryland having beaten MSM but lost to NCSU, but NSCU having lost to MSM, and with Salisbury having tied Maryland and lost to NC State, but having beaten Virginia Tech, it's a case of shuffling all of these teams and wondering.
Well, it happened, and it happened in a big way. Idle as they are, the top four teams in our rankings are vulnerable to being pushed down by teams that play in the fall.
But the teams in the fall can't just do it on one or two victories; they have to build up a portfolio of results against strong opposition.
