We wrap up our All-D1 Fall ranking and it's been a bit of an experiment.
The longtime conventional wisdom has been that there's some crossover between D1A and D1AA teams (meaning some D1AA teams are stronger than some D1A teams). And with the development of NCR's D1, which includes teams that play in D1A conferences, that's also thought to be true.
This ranking was very, very tough to do.
OK, not the whole thing. Most of it was pretty straightforward. Sam Houston State gets a bump after a really impressive showing against Southern Nazarene. St. Joe's and Binghamton also move up after close losses in the NCR playoffs.
