Like my buddy of mine said, you don't win banners for being number one in the polls during the month of October. I don't even know if I would put UND as the number one team in the nation.  Polls are fun to look at and are basically meaningless when you have teams that haven't played a game yet ranked in the top-20.

I musty admit that I am shocked that UND returned to the number one spot in the latest USCHO poll. Also, the national college hockey media has been fawning and slobbering all over Quinnipiac this season. And they're a good team no doubt. Anyways, there still are 30 percent of the media that believes that QU is the top team in the nation. The nice thing about college hockey is that tourney is settled on the ice and not on paper.

 The rankings really means nothing since next weekend, they NCAA Ice Hockey Committee will look at the Pairwise Rankings and make their selections.

This week, the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks remain fourth in the USCHO poll. UND is also fourth in this week’s Pairwise Rankings. The funny thing, UND swept the Bulldogs this past weekend and dropped one spot in the Pairwise Rankings. Last weekend, UND was swept by the Denver Pioneers and remained at the third spot.
