2017 SUMMER UPDATE

August 30, 2017

NAC Motion: Add another rating in November to bridge the gap from the Preseason poll and the (current) first poll in December.
The NAC decided last year to move the first poll to December to create a solid body of work to be judged by the raters in between the preseason poll and the first poll. Since there are not many conference games played between late October and early December, the NAC did not see the need to add an additional poll in November. DENIED

NAC Motion: Schedule ratings as a hybrid between the bi-weekly and weekly ratings.
No discussion was had because of the three-year sunset period in place for the bi-weekly ratings. DENIED
