Men DII College Rankings
We have to find a new #1 as the team that has been camped out at the top of the rankings, Wisconsin-Whitewater, lost.
Yes, sure, the Warhawks lost by a mere five points, but it is very, very tight at the top in these rankings. With #2 Furman being idle, and Norwich playing #6 UMass-Lowell and winning in impressive fashion, it's the Cadets who get the #1 ranking.
Such a great time of year for ranking DII colleges, as everyone is active and playing meaningful games.
This past weekend was very educational for us in many ways, and almost every team moved up or down.
Some quick housekeeping items: Iowa Central and Sam Houston State are in DIAA now so they are taken out of this ranking.
The Mid-Atlantic Men's DII College playoffs started last week, but they didn't actually happen.
Villanova beat York 40-21, while Lehigh beat Shippensburg 23-3.
We have some serious changes in the lower half of the Top 40.
We drop four teams out and it's not done lightly. RPI won a playoff game, but drops out because the win was very close with a team that hasn't done a lot, so while RPI could ump back up with a solid showing this coming weekend, they drop out now. Why?
