    UMD Bulldogs! Gotta expect Merrimack and Notre Dame to fall further than that!!

    Your rankings are quite the joke.  BC splits and moves to top spot.  And ND and Merrimack should both drop out of top 10 for the paper tigers they are.  UMD should be in top spot after a good sweep and have play great since their early sweep by the Gophers.

    BC #1 is a reach; but you are entitled to your opinion.
