A few notes on the various polls:

-Minnesota is still number one in everyone's poll, despite losing a game to Notre Dame last weekend. Their margin in most every poll shrunk considerably though.

-If KRACH has one major flaw, it's that it doesn't quite know what to do with undefeated teams. Luckily, after Minnesota and St. Cloud took losses on Friday night, everybody had at least one loss, and KRACH started looking a lot more realistic.

-All four human polls have the same combination of the top eight teams this week. The computer polls also have pretty much the same combination, with the exception of Notre Dame being outside the top 8 in both Pairwise and KRACH. It's kind of funny, because there was some surprise that Notre Dame didn't move up higher after beating #1 Minnesota last week, but if anything, it seems like the human polls have overrated the Irish a bit.
