Last week, Maryland broke into the coaches' poll with three votes, which at the time seemed pretty awesome. Well, get ready to be hit with some awesome-r: this week's polls see the Terps with a grand total of seven coaches' poll votes, plus a very-respectable six votes in the AP Media Poll. Maryland jumped four spots from last week's ranking in the coaches' poll to #45 (woot!) and debut in the AP poll at #42.
Important? Hardly. Cool? Undoubtedly.
Of course, this brings up the future-focused obvious: what if Maryland pulls off the slightly possible and beats West Virginia next week? You have to figure that a 3-0 team with a victory against a top 25 team away from home is top 25 material, right?
The long rise up the polls continues.
