...and I clearly don't have any ideas for a catchy title.
First things first, as always. Polls come out tomorrow, but I expect us to land in the 10-15 range. That's what happened to Michigan State (from fifth) after losing to Maryland. Thanks to MSU and UCLA losing again this week, our drop should be lessened a bit. Unbeaten Xavier, Wake, Syracuse, and Villanova should jump us, but we will most likely stay ahead of a few one-loss teams and be the top ranked two loss team in the country (hooray).
While interesting, polls have absolutely no meaning, especially this early in the year. Far more important is winning a national championship (weak segue, I'll admit), just like the lady soccer Irish are attempting to accomplish today. 2 PM ESPN2 against North Carolina. Take a quick break from endless NFL coverage to see a very good team representing this school. It'll certainly cheer you up from last night's performance.
