CCHA Media Day

The CCHA held their Media Day today. I didn't watch it over the internet, though the CCHA website did a great job of gathering up all of the pertinent information and putting it on the web.

Also, the Ann Arbor News' Antoine Pitts got some audio clips from Red Berenson, Rick Comley, Jeff Jackson, and CCHA commissioner Tom Anastos.

Here's a look at the Coaches Poll and Media Poll, though as I found out last year, these often aren't incredibly accurate.

Coaches Poll:
1. Miami(5)
2. Michigan State(6)
3. Notre Dame(1)
4. Michigan
5. Ohio State
6. Nebraska-Omaha
7. Lake Superior
8. Northern Michigan
9. Ferris State
10. Western Michigan
11. Alaska
12. Bowling Green

Media Poll
1. Michigan State(25)
2. Miami (21)
3. Notre Dame(13)
4. Michigan(4)
5. Ohio State
6. Nebraska-Omaha
7. Western Michigan
8. Ferris State
9. Lake Superior
10. Northern Michigan
11. Alaska
12. Bowling Green

And now, an even worse indicator of future success, my picks:

1. Notre Dame
2. Miami
3. Michigan
4. Michigan State
5. Ohio State
6. Ferris State
7. Nebraska-Omaha
8. Lake Superior
9. Northern Michigan
10. Alaska
11. Western Michigan
12. Bowling Green
