Poll Watchin’ – March 1, 2011

Detroit is (rather obviously) not included in the Division 1 polls (Nike/Inside Lacrosse and USILA Coaches’), but a couple opponents are:

Team Nike/IL USILA
Ohio State 14 12
Maryland 3 3

UDM lost to the Buckeyes by a slim 3-4 margin, and Maryland blew the Titans out 4-16. Those are the only opponents, past or future, listed, so UDM will likely have an easier go of things as the season goes on.

Onto the MCLA polls. This is a little kinder to teams from Michigan. The adidas MCLA Lax Mag poll has the Wolverines at #1 and Michigan State at #7. The Prodigy MCLA Poll (the one used to determine the field for the MCLA tournament) has the teams in the same order.

There’s some (legitimate) griping about Oregon’s inclusion on 412 Lax. The Ducks moved into the top-25 thanks to losing competitive game to Michigan and Chapman – probably not the way things should work.
