This is our opening attempt at the Boys Single-School Rankings.
For the most part this ranking reflects how 2018-19 ended. However, we've made a few changes at the top. With a coaching change and some player losses at Jesuit, we're bumping Gonzaga up to a preseason #1. This is speculation, to be sure, but a sign that just because you won last year doesn't mean you win this year.
The D1A rankings have a direct effect on the D1A playoffs, as they are used to seed the playoff tournament, so it's no surprise that some teams are looking very closely at those rankings as the spring season approaches.
We don't have a lot of explanation here for our final DIAA rankings of the fall.
Iowa Central was ranked #2 going into the final, and beat Western Michigan. WMU did well enough to keep #2 at the moment, but remember that several of these teams have games to play in the spring.
Here is our final Men's DII 15s rankings for the 2019 fall season.
Picking the #1 is fairly easy. The big concern on Queens had been that they hadn't played opponents whose strength we were sure of, and they had a loss to NSCRO team Southern Virginia in there, too. Even so, Queens we never lower than #8, and bumped up to #2 after the first rounds of the playoffs.
