At least the Notre Dame program earns respect in this ranking

In football, Notre Dame just claimed their first win of the season on Saturday against California. It was their first win of the season as they are now 1-2. This was also the first win in the coaching career of new head coach Marcus Freeman.

Sadly, the new rankings are out and Notre Dame is out of the top 25 for the second week in a row after a few consecutive years of appearing on it. Fortunately, football is not the only sport played at the University of Notre Dame.

The preseason poll is out for college hockey and Notre Dame is getting a lot of respect. They are currently ranked ninth in the survey. It’s a great spot for Notre Dame to be sitting in what promises to be a great season.

Denver is listed first with Minnesota, Minnesota State, North Dakota, Minnesota Duluth, Michigan, Quinnipiac and Northeastern ahead of them. Massachusetts is right behind them to round out the top ten.

Notre Dame will be ranked nationally to start the 2022-23 hockey season.

It’s going to be a crazy season with a lot of craziness all year. Other teams such as Harvard, Boston University and St. Cloud, are also looking to get into the mix. Many teams believe they can be linked to the Frozen Four and Notre Dame is one of them.

ESPN’s John Buccigross is one of the best college hockey analysts and his rankings look a little different. He gives Notre Dame even more respect for his personal ranking at number four. Only Denver, Minnesota and North Dakota are ahead of Notre Dame on this list.

Notre Dame sports fans should join this hockey team this year. We know how the school outperforms the football and basketball team, but there is no doubt that the Irish also have a very good hockey program.

Seeing them ranked nationally along with the respect John Buccigross is giving them should get fans very excited. This show has produced some very good NHL players like Anders Lee, Kyle Palmieri and Vinnie Hinostroza to name a few.

Now, it’s time to see who on the show is next. It all starts in October for the Irish as they begin their quest for an NCAA title in 2023.
