|Virtually all men living in the U.S. must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Men who fail to register become ineligible for important opportunities such as student loans, job training programs, citizenship for male immigrants, and driver’s license renewal in most states. In addition, registration is required for employment with the federal government, numerous state and local agencies, and a growing number of private employers. Men who fail to register by age 26 can be PERMANENTLY barred from these opportunities. Learn more, check your status, or register today at www.sss.gov.
The top five teams in the country are all really good, and chances are they could all beat each other on any given day. When was the last time we could realistically say that?
Nonetheless, none of the top five budge up or down this week. Life did beat Arkansas State, but the rivals leave the regular season 1-1 against each other, with both teams winning at home. The rubber match will likely be a DI-A semifinal.
The next tier of really good teams has shown itself, too. Central Washington beat Cal Poly and played St. Mary’s fairly tough. Army beat Navy, Penn State and Kutztown this season and looks to be as formidable as ever. And Kutztown beat Davenport.
The Midshipmen move up pretty dramatically after a loss, but it was a two-point loss to the Black Knights. We didn’t want to overreact to Navy beating lesser teams all spring, but a close loss to Army and a win over Clemson was enough to push the Midshipmen up.
Utah’s cloudy state as a program forced us to pull them from the rankings, because at the time of print, they were still under suspension.
We also chose to drop San Diego State, who has been inactive for some time, and we brought in Clemson.
The Tigers shut out Ohio State early in the spring, and that win was certainly impressive, but they have been really impressive since, walloping teams in the ACRL and nearly knocking off Navy. Look for the Tigers to be competitive in the DI-AA playoffs.
