In some ways this fall has been a season of turnarounds in Men’s D2 rugby, but few, if any, are more profound than what has happened in Mankato, Minn.
DIAA NCR playoffs this fall are just part of a fairly muddled picture for (mostly) club teams in (mostly) large colleges.NCR

It was a bit of a tough week for making these rankings because we do have some teams we'd like to move into the Top 50, but those ranked in the lower reaches actually did pretty well.

One of the more interesting results of the weekend in men's college rugby was Kentucky's tie with Ohio State.
The playoffs are coming.
When the playoffs are here we will see some significant movement. Don't expect the rankings to be perfect. No, not at all. To be honest, while we are pretty sure of the top three, even they could, of course, lose at some point. And we are pretty sure that teams #4 through #11 could all be mixed up and we wouldn't argue.
