to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

You are right about RealTime.RRI.com's not listing Bryant as a member of the NEC. However, Sagarin does include Bryant as a member of the NEC, thus accounting for a one position improvement in its ranking of the NEC over that of RealTimeRPI.com.
Bryant is in its last transition year to full-fledged membership in the NEC per NCAA rules. Its games count in the records of all NEC members as conference games, but Bryant was prohibited from winning the championship regardless of its conference record. (I note that the NEC website includes Bryant as a conference member in the football standings.)
Perhaps another contributing factor in the Dukes' being over-looked as a serious candidate for an at-large bid in the FCS playoffs was having a very weak Valpo (1-10) on its schedule.
Regarding RealTime.RPI.com, it has listed the Dukes' conference record as 0-0 for the last two years. Attention to detail just may not be that site's strong suit.
