Until today, I didn't know that Florida Gulf Coast University existed. For a school that opened its doors in 1998 and was admitted to an NCAA conference in 2006, #23 is pretty good.

It seems that a bit of Slippery Rock logic is in order. Central Arkansas defeated Houston Baptist, which beat Oral Roberts, which topped IUPUI, which bested Cleveland State, which upset Akron. So I guess Central Arkansas (3-12-0, and with an RPI that ranks 192nd among 204 Division I teams) is a real heavyweight.
