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

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

These pieces are usually more substantial, but as everyone is still kind of idling in the driveway, it's really hard to make internal combustion when you're just holding a can of gasoline and a bucket of screws. So, you get what you get at this point.

The media and coaches polls are out and things are kind of:

  • In the media poll, Denver took home 22 first-place votes while Notre Dame (two) and Syracuse (one) each earned first-place nods from the poll's voters. New to the poll this week are Towson, Marquette, and Princeton while Hofstra, Drexel, and Bryant fell out of the top 20.
  • In the coaches poll, Denver earned all 12 first-place votes. New to the poll this week are Towson, Marquette, and Colgate while Hofstra, Lehigh, and Bryant fell out of the top 20.

Below is an aggregation of both the coaches and media polls. I'm holding off on featuring computer-type rankings until we get a little deeper into the season.
