CCHA coaches, media rank NMU eighth in preseason polls
October 3, 2012 - Matt Wellens
MARQUETTE — Apparently my fellow CCHA media members and the league’s 11 coaches don’t see eye-to-eye with me this season.
Last week in revealing my preseason ballot, I picked Western Michigan to claim the final CCHA regular season title while slotting the Northern Michigan University hockey team to finish fifth overall.
In the 2012-13 CCHA preseason polls released this morning, Notre Dame topped the coaches poll while Michigan ran away in the media poll, which included 87 members.
The Wildcats were ranked eighth in both polls with NMU tying Bowling Green State at No. 8 in the coaches' poll. The media slotted the Wildcats in eighth ahead of BGSU.
Note: The CCHA listed the Wildcats ninth, but NMU tied BGSU for eighth in the coaches poll. Both scored 43 poins in voting.
