Acrosse the Lacrosse Polls: February 23, 2015

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 (this is the same first-place vote split as last week). New to the poll this week is Holy Cross while Penn State fell out of the top 20.
  • In the coaches poll, Denver earned 13 first-place vote while North Carolina earned a nod from someone. New to the poll this week are Princeton and Holy Cross while while Drexel and Penn State exited 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.
