Adam: #1 Notre Dame—If you like goals, look away, but the Irish defense looked fantastic this weekend. "Run DMC" couldn't get anything going against Epple, Sexton, and company. I'm still unconvinced they'll be able to score goals against good teams but for now, they default into the #1 spot after a bunch of top teams lost.

#3 Penn State—The Nittany Lions did something they haven't yet had to do this season: Come from behind and win. They did just that against a good Penn team on Saturday. 5-0 with an electric offense, they're #3 for now but their upcoming schedule is a bit of a cakewalk, so they may drop as other teams play tougher opponents.

#6 Rutgers—This bona fide lacrosse school is 5-0 with solid wins over Army, Fairfield, and Brown. Offense looks fine without Charalambides but the story for them has been their excellent defense.

#8 Johns Hopkins—The Jays laid an egg at Princeton this week. They weren't prepared and took a very talented Tigers team for granted. But they're still a top 10 squad, and their pair of wins over UNC and Loyola is still the most impressive resume of any team.

#11 BU—The Terriers are 6-0 with wins over Air Force, Bryant, Navy, and Providence. They've yet to allow double-digit goals. Explain to me how they're not in a lot of people's top 15? That's a borderline top 10 resume at this point in the season.

#14 Yale—Even with Reeves, they couldn't get the job done at home against Bryant. What happened? Suddenly they're 1-2 and have yet to notch a significant win. Their very light non-conference schedule doesn't give them many opportunities at good wins. Going to have to earn it in league play.

#19 Princeton—I know, Hofstra beat them, but Princeton's win over Hopkins may have been the most impressive, statement win of the season by any team. Sims and Sons are for real.

Safe: No comments from me this week as I will save them for the aggregation post but here are a couple funny Tweets from Ryan about Hopkins’ bad loss to Princeton.

You gotta laugh through the pain.
