BGSU appears loaded.

BG always seems to find a way to come up just short. Whether that be the regular season title, playoff title or an NCAA Bid........

Maybe this year is the year they finally get over the hump, but so far Bergeron has not proved he can get this team to win the big game.

Seems the media and the USCHO posters are in almost complete agreement. Coaches not far off, either.

The upshot of those two polls: the coaches have no idea who's missing the playoffs besides UAA, and the slightly larger sample of media members (19 v. 10) differentiated things a bit.

No, I won't release the detailed responses. :)

If you're curious, my fan poll came to the following:

School (First Place Votes) — Total Points

Bowling Green (5) — 159
Minnesota State (8) — 156
Michigan Tech (4) — 148
Northern Michigan (1) — 146
Bemidji State —*104
Ferris State — 90
Alabama-Huntsville — 71
Lake Superior — 52
Alaska — 43
Alaska-Anchorage —*21

Picked to miss the playoffs on the 18 ballots: Alaska-Anchorage, 18 (3-9th, 15-10th); Alaska (10-9th, 2-10th), 12; Lake Superior, 5 (4-9th, 1-10th), Alabama-Huntsville, 1 (1-9th)

Fans self-identified as:
UAH: 3; UAA: 0; UAF: 1; BSU: 0; BGSU: 2; FSU: 1; LSSU: 1; MTU: 4; MSU: 3; NMU: 2; Undetermined, 1

GFM <— too lazy to put the teams together right now.

Only real surprise to me is that the coaches picked UAH 9th.

The spread between 7th and 9th is essentially meaningless.

I find it more interesting that MSU, MTU and NMU are the only ones getting love in National poll. I would have thought maybe BGSU would get some love as well....

EDIT: Saw MSU #10... I'm an idiot :p :D

Would've had two but I bowed out after I saw you could vote for player awards, don't watch enough of the other teams to make even an educated guess.

I was referring to the fan vote, not the media vote. Yours counted there. :)

I'll try to find the time this weekend to compile it. It's not hard, just tedious.

I'm pretty sure that you were in the list. I know that spam filtering ate Michael's invite.
