Boston College reclaims top spot in men’s poll

After a week out of the top spot, Boston College has reclaimed
the No. 1 ranking in the weekly USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll.

The Eagles were one of six teams to garner first-place votes from
the 50 voters, with 32 ballots listing BC at the top. No. 2
Denver had 11 first-place votes and No. 3 Colorado College had
four, while No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 6 Ferris State and No. 10 Yale
earned the others.

Last week’s top-ranked team, Michigan, fall to No. 4 this week.

Western Michigan jumps four spots to No. 7, Minnesota stays at
No. 8 and Merrimack is up four places to No. 9.

Union rises one notch to No. 11, North Dakota drops seven to No.
12, Boston University is down six to No. 13, Northern Michigan
goes up three to No. 14 and Minnesota-Duluth remains No. 15, as
does Colgate at No. 16, tied with Miami.

Lake Superior State comes in at No. 18, Cornell at No. 19 and
previously unranked Quinnipiac enters the fold this week at No.

Seventeen other schools also received votes.

    Your voters are on some sort of drug are they not?

      Truth serum?

    Good to see a team who hasn’t played a game in the top 10.

    With a first place vote.

      The fact that Yale hasn’t played yet is irrelevant.  Based on your standards there should be no such thing as a pre-season poll.

      • Astrocyte

         The fact that they haven’t played is completely relevant. I believe they call it a preseason poll because none of the teams have played a game yet. I’m not out to say anything bad about Yale because I don’t care that it’s Yale – if it was Wisconsin or Boston College or North Dakota I’d be saying the same thing. In a situation where other teams are playing, you can’t be ranked if you aren’t.

      Why are the North Dakota trolls so obsessed with Yale.  Don’t you guys have bigger concerns like whether or not we really landed on the moon, actually got bin Laden or checking presidential birth certificates?

      • Astrocyte

        I guess those are topics for different websites?

      • Astrocyte

        Also I could care less what team it is to be completely honest. A team that hasn’t played a game whereas others have played as many as 6 should not be in the top ten and should not be receiving first place votes. Insert Dave Starman’s comments here.

        Who said anything about Yale. Seems to me after last year that the yalies have just as big a hang up on the sioux as the sioux fans seemed to have on the polls last year. And by the way not that I care since I don’t care about either team but it seems that the sioux fans had a point about the polls last year right?

    Go Minnesota!  Lets hope Lucia holds onto his job by winning the Frozen Four!

    How can the Sue be 12th and Wisconsin not get a top 20 spot?  For once can we have someone screen the pollers for North Dakota bias? 

  • LincolnJim

    well I was all worried until I saw UNO at 31 and UND tied for 33 in the KRACH.  Strength of schedule boys!  Hang in there.
