Why Isn’t Wesleyan Ranked?

I’ll make a case for the Cardinals:

  • 9-4-4 record; 8-1-3 in their last 12 games.
  • Beat 11th-ranked Norwich 4-1; first win over the Cadets ever.
  • Beat Williams 3-2; first win over the Ephs since 1982.
  • Tied 12th-ranked Middlebury.
  • Tied 8th-ranked Mass-Dartmouth
  • Is 10th in the Eastern PWR, ahead of Skidmore and Middlebhury, which are both ranked.
  • Is 14th in the national PWR.

I guess having a captain who is the son of a senior USCHO writer doesn’t get the Cardinals any special treatment. No bias here!
