The game between #5 Trinity (TX) and (RV, "29th") Mary Hardin-Baylor was called off with Trinity leading 4-0 in the 29th minute.  Rain/lightning forced the cancellation and the teams will attempt to reschedule.

Wow!  4-0 after half an hour.  And to think MHB was on a number of voter's Top 25 ballot.  Official game or not, that would temper how I rate MHB.

North Park seems awfully high for having picked up three ties already, the two against Methodist and NC Wesleyan not exactly top quality though they were on a long road trip.

Surprised that Wm. Paterson stayed in as the highest ranked NJAC given that Montclair St. beat them 3-0 with shots and SOG confirming they were much better on the night.   I thought Rutgers-Camdem and/or MSU should have been in but not Wm. Paterson.

Not a fan of DePauw being ranked given the cupcake schedule they have played.  Plattsburgh St. has played a pretty soft schedule to date, so it's hard to know if they really are Top 25 material or not.

A lot of results so far this season that make rankings difficult.

You'd think so, but Chapman went to TX and lost to both Trinity (TX) and Southwestern, getting outscored 12-1, and went all the way from receiving 30 vote points to 20 points. 

In the TU-UMHB game, Trinity scored their fourth goal at the 7:12 mark.  1:30 separated the last three goals.  If they can just start playing like that on the road ...

Glad you brought that up.  I noticed that when I first saw the new poll.  Not sure how anybody could justify giving a Top 25 vote, even for spot #25, to Chapman after that.  Mind boggling.

Since there's no SCAC board, I'll post this here:  Trinity (TX) 3-0 win at Centre was highlighted by back-to-back goals from Brian Himes.  The two goals, scored in a period of 11 seconds, are tied for second-fastest all-time in Division III (source, Trinity SID).
