DU Moving On Up In The Polls

USA Today Hockey PollFrom: Rocky Mountain News

The University of Denver hockey team rose two spots to No. 4 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll released Monday.

The Pioneers (1-0), who defeated Notre Dame 5-2 in their opener Saturday night, are just behind No. 3 Colorado College (2-0) in the poll.

LetsGoDU Top 10 SuperPoll®

1). Denver - Mr. Boone goes to Washington?
2). Boston College - 4 more National Championships and they'll be tied with DU
3). Michigan - Need to spend more money on football program
4). New Hampshire
- The "Colorado College" of the East
5). Miami - Playing in the CCHA assures Miami 20 easy wins a year
6). Notre Dame - Played DU tough for 50 minutes
7). Minnesota State - Finished last season with a kick
8). St. Cloud - The Frozen Four will be in Washington DC, Husky fans will be fishing in Minnesota
9). North Dakota
- We rank UND #9 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts behind BC, BU, UMass, Northeastern, Lowell, Harvard, Merrimack & D-III Worcester State. Congrats on two straight losses to open season to BU & UMass.
Last). Colorado College - 52 consecutive years ending the season with a loss

The LetsGoDU Super Poll® is a scientific analysis factoring strength of schedule, player statistics and coaching tendencies. Then Denver is automatically placed in the one hole, CC is placed last and the rest of the teams more or less settle where they might likely finish.

You know, I like your "scientific poll" better than the others...you don't think there is any personal bias do you?

Some people are better than others at disguising the biases. I wear mine on my sleeve. Its a problem that my therapist is working 24/7 to resolve. :-)
