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.
With the first few games in Men's DII College done, we've got enough data for a first stab at the rankings.
Watch out for a few new faces as the Midwest Conference gets rolling.

Right at the end of the rankings period, we have been moving teams in and out of the Top 50, and even the Top 5. This final week was no different.
The choices we had to make at the top of the GRR-FloRugby Boys HS Club Rankings were fairly easy; it was further down that was hard.
There's nothing like a National Championship weekend to clarify your rankings, and there's nothing like a state playoff to at least give you some fodder for consideration.
The headline is the question, and generally I'd have to say, yes, I do.
That doesn't mean I don't make a lot of mistakes, but as I also say, the results make the rankings somewhat self-correcting.
So here goes with some HS Club rankings questions and answers:
