Comments.

Safe. As usual I’ll save my comments for the Aggregation. Here’s my ballot though.

Ryan.

Johns Hopkins: Yes, I know Hopkins beat Rutgers, but given they were right next to each other and RU won and JHU lost this weekend, the Knights move slightly ahead.

Chris.

Syracuse: Praying that this week's #1 doesn't lose.

Maryland: Maryland's still the top team in the Big Ten.

Albany: Really want to see how the Great Danes do against the Terps. Is Albany legit?

Hofstra: If Hofstra runs the table and stays undefeated for the rest of the season, how high will they be seeded in the NCAA Tournament?

Penn State: Even though they lost to Maryland, they are a pretty good team. Their game against Hopkins next week is going to be huge.

Duke: I think they're the hottest team in the nation right now.

Notre Dame: Have teams started to find their weaknesses?

Yale: At this point, Yale does look like the slightly better Ivy League team.

Princeton: But Princeton still manages to rack up to good wins.

North Carolina: I think we all know how big that UVA win was for them. It is now acceptable for voters to put the Heels in their top 20.

Monmouth: I'm putting Monmouth in over Robert Morris and Loyola, but I really wanted to put Robert Morris in there. They have a big game against UVA tomorrow and I think they have a legitimate chance to win. If UVA is in voter top 20s, that's not right.

Jake Nazar.

Maryland: The King Stay The King. Whoever decided to make them an underdog got a reminder into just who the hell they are.

Albany: Undefeated and dominant, but this game against Maryland will tell us a lot. Need a good performance at minimum.

Syracuse: No team in the country has a better resume. Defense looks good. But may be multiple teams I'd take over them on a neutral field

Hofstra: Low key very solid resume, great defense, but also haven't seen them vs a tournament team in awhile.

Penn State: Offense still looked pretty good in defeat against Maryland, but the defense could be what keeps them from a first ever Final Four

Denver: Very impressed by the offense, best faceoff situation of any team in the country, still a few questions on defense

Army: Riding their luck the last few games, but 10-1 is 10-1 and that Cuse W could look good for seeding purposes.

Duke: Most complete performance of the year from them. Developing the kind of depth scoring they've lacked the last 2 years

Notre Dame: That offense will not get it done in May.

Ohio State: Very strong win over Hopkins. Defense might be the best in the Top 10. If the offense clicks they're a threat to go deep in May

Yale: Best team in the Ivy yet again. Beat Albany, win the Ivy tournament, and they've got a good shot at getting a home game

Johns Hopkins: Struggling with consistency, but offense and defense are both capable of very good things.

Rutgers: Back on track well with a W over Michigan. Need to show up at home vs Maryland though

Princeton: That offense is lightning in a bottle. Lot of threats. Defense is iffy though. Probably bubble-in

Richmond: Couple goals here or there vs Duke and UVA and they'd be in the conversation for a home game

North Carolina: Really needed that UVA win. Need to see the offense and defense click vs an elite team though.
