Trying to figure this out but was there a note of sarcasm in your voice?:D

Polls mean nothing right now. In my eyes, who cares who is where. Nobody ever won the National Championship in September.

Isn't the third reason basically because they haven't played the games yet?

:eek:

They took their final 2008 - 2009 rankings and shook them right upI can see the top two, but not #3 and #4. Those two teams are going to look entirely different than they did last season. In the meantime, the bottom of the WCHA has improved, and I expect that there won't be a lot of separation between the league's 3rd place and 8th place teams. Thus, it won't be likely that they'll get 3 teams into the top 4 in the national rankings once play gets going. I'd move both Clarkson and SCSU higher if I was voting.


Nobody ever won the National Championship in September.It is possible, but it would require about 5 months worth of OT cumulatively in the NCAA games.:eek:

First thought I had looking at the poll was that this pre-season poll has the biggest potential to be out of wack, or inaccurate as any in the past...or as any pre-season poll in my recent, depleted memory. A number of teams in the poll are pretty drastically changed from last season...I don't know how, or if you can make an accurate or credible ranking based on the teams prior season.

In other words, it seems to me there may be much more pure guess work present than many prior pre-season polls.

B - I - N - G - O

There are so many teams (especially in the prior season's top 10) that have been forced either by graduation, centralization, or attrition for whatever reason, to "rebuild". I think this is going to be the year of the team that is able to bond, adjust, learn, and develop.

More than any other year I can think of, this will be the year of the finisher.

The first USCHO women's poll is out.

http://www.uscho.com/rankings/?data=uscho1w&week=poll

Mercyhurst opens at No. 1, edging out Minnesota. Clarkson posts big gains, pretty much swapping places with BC (now out of the rankings). North Dakota still on the brink of the top 10 despite the split at Wisconsin.

There was no USCHO preseason poll, but USA Today/AHM had one. The USA Today/AHM poll factoring in this week's results will come out tomorrow, of course.

I am surprised that UMD and BU didn't take bigger hits in the polls.

UMDs 4-1 loss to RMU (after beating them 5-2 the day before) should garner a bigger adjustment than 1 position.

Additionally, BU tied both games with Ohio (and lost both shootouts) so I am not sure why they are still in 10th.

No worries, it's my bad. I didn't notice a poll thread had already been started. The threads are now merged.

Men's USCHO poll is out. Women's is not. All that parity must be confusing:confused:
