The polls are out. Well, as usual, three of the four polls are available online at this time on Monday. After their tremendous weekend, Michigan has garnered some national attention and claimed a spot in one ranking.
Coach Rich Maloney's squad cracked Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Top 30 by defeating former top ten teams Georgia and North Carolina on successive days. The Wolverines (5-2)check in at number twenty-four.
I have conflicting information on the Sports Weekly/ESPN Coaches Poll. The one I've linked to below does not list Michigan under "Others Receiving Votes". However, the poll emailed to me indicates the Wolverines got nine points in this week's survey. While I think they should have mustered more than just nine tallies, which probably puts them around a number forty ranking (give or take a couple of spots), it's a start.
Baseball America doesn't have U of M ranked and doesn't reveal all the schools that get votes. I continue to wait for the NCBWA Poll to pop up at their site.
Here is a look at the three polls. Texas and Tulane continue their battle for the consensus number one ranking.

Both the Wolverines and Ohio State's fine showing at the Keith LeClair Classic were the subject of Baseball America's Will Kimmey's College Weekend Recap. The Buckeyes (2-3) were probably a win away from getting votes in the polls, as well. Regardless, you know the Big Ten had a great weekend when they get this kind of ink at BA.
