Acrosse the Lacrosse Polls: March 10, 2014

Aggregating the media and coaches polls, and generally making life terrific for everyone.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The media and coaches polls are out and Maryland solidified its position further at the top of the nation:

  • In the media poll, Maryland picked up 22 first-place votes. One voter, however, put Loyola at the top of his or her ballot, keeping the Terps' from assuming a unanimous position atop of the media run. Notable upward movers this week were Cornell (rising seven positions), Albany (rising four positions), and North Carolina and Loyola (rising three positions each). Notable downward movers this week were Yale and Notre Dame (falling six positions each), Massachusetts (falling five positions), and Virginia (falling four positions ). Ejected from the poll were St. John's, Drexel, and Ohio State while Bryant, Colgate, and Hofstra moved into the top 20.
  • In the coaches poll, Maryland earned 13 of 14 first-place votes (Loyola earned the other first-place vote). Notable upward movers this week were Cornell (rising seven positions), Albany (rising around five positions), and Denver and Loyola (rising three positions each). Notable downward movers this week were Yale (falling around seven positions), Massachusetts (falling five positions), and Notre Dame and Virginia (falling around five positions). Ejected from the poll were Army and St. John's while Fairfield and Bryant moved into the top 20.

Below is an aggregation of both the coaches and media polls. I'm holding off on featuring computer-type rankings until next week because my database somehow went kaput this morning.
