The INCH power rankings also came out today and place BU up two spots to #14 in the country. For some reason they respect the EZAC and have Colgate, Union, and Yale ranked ahead of BU despite Yale's unproven 1-0-1 record and Union's loss to UNH this weekend. Everyone will find out how weak that conference is once they all fail to make a Frozen Four again. Yes Yale that is directed at you.
