  1. Ricky, what do you think a loss to a DII team will mean to the coaches voting?

  2. I’d like to think it’s meaningless. It didn’t affect my top 10 positively or negatively, but I’m sure some will see “Loss 3-2” and issue a demerit.

    I’d also like to think that everyone will know that Clarion is a D II program. However, unless it’s denoted on the voting materials, I’m not holding out hope that everyone will know. Even if it is denoted as a loss to a D II team, I doubt that everyone will see it as, at worst, a neutral event in the grand scheme of things in D III.
