Would like to see some opinions of other fans on which poll is better. I like how USCHO gives a larger view with a Top-20.

The poll that has my team ranked higher!.....but seriously, I look at USCHO first. It's focus is college hockey, I put more stock in it that the USA Today poll.

Just my 2 cents.

Polls are irrelevant.

Polls are irrelevant.

Totally agree.

I only really care about Pairwise. Polls in college hockey are window dressing.

Since USA Today barely, really, even covers college hockey I'm not sure why they even bother, though.

Only because some schools feel inferior if they don't have that little subscript number next to their name during telecasts.

I follow the Brent poll/pole/Pole: -1. Gophers, 2.Either....Who cares?...or..everyone else.

Answer is C. The Pairwise. But only after Mid-January.

Technically, the pairwise only matters on Selection Sunday :)

However, the January 1 pairwise are 72% accurate for who makes the final field. By the end of February it's 91% (and actually dips slightly during the conference tournaments).

That's actually more accurate than I thought.
