Two new polls out...BU 3rd in HE media polls, 13th in USA Today poll

Two college hockey polls were released in the last 24 hours. One of which was the HE media poll which ranked BU as #3 in the conference in the annual pre-season poll. Terrier juniors Matt Nieto and Garrett Noonan were selected to the All- Hockey East team with Nieto as a forward along with some scrubs from BC(Newton),Maine and Lowell( Gaudreau, Diamond, and Wilson). Noonan was joined by Ruhwedel on the d pair and Newton College goalie Parker Milner was named the goalie. The standings were as follows
1. BC(Newton University)
2 Lowell
3. BU
4. UNH
5. PC
6. Maine
7. Merrimack
8. Northeastern
9. UMass
10. UVM

The national USA Today poll was also released. It has as much significance as the HE media poll which is zero but here it is anyway. BU comes in 13th with BC and Lowell also coming in ranked. Maine, UNH, PC and Merrimack received votes in the poll. Here is the rest of the top 15
1. Newton University -overrated
2. Minnesota- choke artists
3. Michigan -
4. North Dakota - Half the team is suspended for one of their first two games
5. Union -EZAC always has high ranked teams early in the year..they never win shit. Granted Union was a Frozen Four team last year so I am more sold on them than the rest of the conference
6. Cornell
7. Lowell
8. Denver
9. Miami
10. Notre Dame
11. Western Michigan- Should be higher. I think they are a Frozen Four team this year
12. Minnesota-Duluth- Shouldn't be this high with everyone they lost
13. BU
14 Ferris St.
15. Wisconsin
