One of the biggest decisions we have to make in our rankings is whether to keep a tie as a tie in the rankings.
Yes Notre Dame College tied Davenport, but does that mean they have to be deadlocked from now on? This week, we've decided to separate the two. This is mostly because Davenport still has some games to play, and the data on NDC is pretty heavy, if a bit confused.
We have to find a new #1 as the team that has been camped out at the top of the rankings, Wisconsin-Whitewater, lost.
Yes, sure, the Warhawks lost by a mere five points, but it is very, very tight at the top in these rankings. With #2 Furman being idle, and Norwich playing #6 UMass-Lowell and winning in impressive fashion, it's the Cadets who get the #1 ranking.
As usual we have some big movement with conference playoffs, and we have to say we're not surprised that happened happened.
Some decisions have to be made this week as we vote in the DIA rankings.
Such a great time of year for ranking DII colleges, as everyone is active and playing meaningful games.
This past weekend was very educational for us in many ways, and almost every team moved up or down.
Some quick housekeeping items: Iowa Central and Sam Houston State are in DIAA now so they are taken out of this ranking.
