In what seems like a recent trend, Colorado College was not ranked in the Top 15.
Obviously these rankings should be taken with a grain of salt, because INCH ranked DU's 2004 class #8 (Stastny, Mannino, Dingle, Thomas, May, Paukovich) and seven months later they won a National Championship. Many believe that the 2004 class was DU's best recruiting class in the modern era.
Last season INCH ranked DU's 2008 Class as the 8th best in the country. Colborne, & Wiercioch are now considered All-WCHA elite players just one year later.
