The Michigan Softball team gained 1 first place vote in the USA Today/Coaches poll released today. Although we did not move up in rank, we picked up more points. Last week Georgia was #4 but they jumped over us by a convincing win against #2 Florida. This is the first time in a very long time that a PAC-10 School is not rated in the top 3.
Our 2 wins against a very good Northwestern squad proved huge. Many pick NW to finish 2nd in the B1G conference. The voters must have realized that, coupled with Georgia's leap-frog of us. Alabama finished #1 in the poll.
We play Bowling Green tomorrow and Indiana this weekend, all in A2. This should be 3 nice wins. Alabama, Georgia and Florida all play baby seals.
