What to you has been the most important/interesting development of the season so far that you might not have anticipated before the season started?

Mine would have to be PSU looking like a team with a title shot.
I've been especially impressed by their freshmen: Alton, Taylor, and Ruth. If Pataky makes it back to the level he's competed at that gives them around 8 guys with aa chances and a few with shots at titles.

What's the big story for you?
