Lots of pairity this season in D3. It's funny that the highest ranked ECAC-W team is currently in last place at 1-3, but it seems as though they clearly belong there.

As a SNC fan, I wish they weren't ranked #1 right now. I mean, they lost the last time they took the ice too??? I'd have Williams at #1, not because I'm convinced they're the best team in the country but simply because they are the nations only unbeaten team and the NESCAC has shown to be pretty competitive in out of conference games so far this season...

Because they were in the finals two years ago and had another darn good season last year. They started out ranked pretty high despite losing Lopes and Martinson, which I didn't understand and they have been fortunate that when they have lost, the teams around them have also lost so they have stayed right about where they started the year.

It's just the way the polls work. You reap the benefits from what you did last year until you grossly prove otherwise. Look at what Norwich has done so far this year. Who have they beat? No one and they have lost to every good team they have played. If they didn't win the national championship last year, they'd be a borderline top 15 team right now.

Difference is Gussies have opted no one and their three loses have been to no ones. I still don't get it.

Which is why my computer has them at 35th

That may be a bit low for them. I just don't get the top ten or fifteen at this point. One thing for sure, this poll can sure generate some discussion. Which I guess is what it's meant to do. But if it gets too whacky, credibility is lost!

Jaslow, did you have Plattsburgh in the top 15? If not, what is your reasoning?

Yes, I did ... barely...
