Minnesota received two votes in this weeks coaches poll, good enough for 37th in the country right behind Maryland and tied with Washington State. Other teams of note in the top 25 are Purdue at # 17, Michigan State at # 20, Ohio State is ranked #21. Somehow, Michigan still isn’t ranked. Yes it is early, and yes they were very bad last year, but they have the two most impressive non-conference wins of any team in the country so far. Couldn’t they at least sneak in at #24?

Last year at about this time the Gophers received a couple of votes and I was elated. This year it is little more than an interesting curiousity. Things must be looking up.
