Second coaches poll released

The second release of the NABC Division II coaches poll came out today, and lo and behold, Harding received a vote! I’m not sure who gets to vote in these polls, but to me, it seems like they’re just looking at won-loss records and scores. Our non-conference schedule is relatively weak, so I find it hard to believe that we’re the only GSC West team getting consideration, while the UAMs and Delta States of our division don’t even get a vote.

[EDIT: I do know that one coach from each region gets a vote, so the South region voter may have included us, along with UAH (and obviously Montevallo).]
