This is how GoffRugbyReport will vote in this week's DIA rankings.
There are some teams that moved up but who didn't make the top 40, such as Syracuse, Boston College, and Northeastern. Illinois moved up thanks to a very close loss, while your biggest movers are Utah State (crushed Wyoming), and Minnesota (beat Purdue).
Here are our HS Select-Side rankings for JV boys teams —also known as Tier 2.
We looked at how teams performed in the tournaments and gave some losing teams credit for close losses. But if you are inconsistent, that drops you down.
At GRR we're a little late with all the scores, but here are most of them.
Tri-State teams are still woefully slow in reporting scores and we think they should start using the USA Rugby CMS ... it works! Please go it next year.
Upstate NY had the week off.
Here are the latest DII games this weekend with scores coming in.
Watch out for NC State vs Queens in the Cardinals, GVSU vs Bethel in Great Lakes, Northern Iowa vs Marquette in Great Midwest, Vermont vs Sacred Heart, and RPI v WPU in Tri-State as games of note.
We've got our D2 college rankings at this link as part of GRR's partnership with FloRugby.

What's the thinking behind it all?
A few thoughts and comments on Boys HS Rankings.
The new Boys HS Rankings are on FloRugby here - you've got to sign up to see them, but it's worth it, as you'll also get access to a whole bunch of other stuff.
Who should we be looking at with the High School Rankings?
Well, watch out. GRR is partnering with FloRugby on our High School Rankings once again, and they will be available on Wednesday.
Here's a little sneak preview:
Far be it for us to burden you with our problems, but our final Men's DII rankings are late, and in fact we missed a few weeks, and we're sorry.
Many, many changes in the rankings thanks to a couple of weeks' data.
The MARC teams get a big boost, in part because the 2016 conference winner, Rowan, has been tearing it up in DI. At some point, that has to indicate that this is a very, very competitive conference. So the undefeated teams get a big boost.
Two weeks of data plus some upsets means we have a TON of moves in the Men's DII college rankings.
Furman drops. So does Sacred Heart. So does Western State. RPI gets a boost, and so does UNC-Charlotte, Middlebury, Bloomsburg and other MARC teams, and Quinnipiac.
We missed the D!! rankings last week ... long story ... so we've got some massive movements.
Northern Michigan, VMI, Montana State, and UNC-Charlotte all make big moves up.
Here are you latest Men's DII College Rankings.
We made some changes as we had a few mistakes last week - mostly teams in the rankings had moved out of the division. We also have some significant moves, including Appalachian State, VMI, Marquette, Principia, and Scranton.
