  1. The pre-season media poll is always a seemingly “educated” guess as to how the season will unfold. I’d switch Denver and Omaha in the media poll and agree with the other guesses.

  2. This is just stupid, no way UND is #3. They are the clear lead in talent after all the recruits they brought in and the seniors they have this year.. Maybe they don’t have faith in the new coach but its should read 1. UND 2. UMD 3. DU 4. UNO 5. SCSU 6. UM 7. UWM 8. CC PUT IT IN THE BANK!!
