Women's hockey / 2019 Bracketology

You guys working on a women's bracketology? 

Men's hockey / D III Pairwise
« on: November 26, 2018, 12:39:13 pm »
So is going to be able to produce a PairWise rankings (similar to what is done for Div I) that will all but take the guesswork out of the NCAA selection process?  I still haven't decided if I think this is good or bad...

Women's hockey / 2018 Bracketology

Since I know you aren't busy or anything, guys, I was wondering if a third women's bracketology was in the works this week?  I don't always comment on them, but I definitely always read them...

Women's hockey / 2016 Bracketology
« on: February 18, 2016, 05:04:19 pm »
The first Bracketology is posted for the 2016 tournament!  That sound you hear is Adrian's fans exploding over in Michigan!

My only question, though, is it that cut and dry for Elmira over Adrian for the first Pool C?  Adrian wins WIN and RNK.  I know Elmira wins SOS, but shouldn't Adrian's head-to-head win count for something here too?  I think Adrian would be my first Pool C, with Elmira clearly taking the second Pool C and Amherst being on the outside looking in....

Care to take a crack at this one too?  I'd be interested to read!

Men's hockey / 2015 Regional Ranking speculation
« on: February 17, 2015, 12:36:15 pm »
Just thought I'd take a stab at the first NCAA regional ranking.  The records are the NCAA tournament records (no Canton, no Div II games).  If I'm off, it's because I looked at it quickly:

1. Oswego (16-1-3)
2. Trinity (19-2-1)
3. Norwich (17-3-1)
4. Mass-Boston (17-3-1)
5. Amherst (15-4-1)
6. Plattsburgh (16-5-1)
7. Hobart (18-6-0)
8. Babson (13-5-3)

I also considered Nichols, but there just isn't anything on their schedule that warrants their being ranked.  I think Williams has also fallen out of contention...

Women's hockey / ECAC West Tiebreaker?
« on: February 22, 2014, 08:37:09 am »
There is conflicting information in Plattsburgh about the ECAC West tie-breaking procedures.  Most of the fans were under the impression that record against common opponents was one of the criteria.  However, news started making the rounds that is no longer considered and hosting for the ECAC West playoffs may come down to a coin toss.  I have three questions:

1.  When did the rules change?  I had the impression from people who would know that Plattsburgh had the tie breaker advantage.  I fully admit that my impression could have been wrong because now I can't remember where that impression came from.

2.  If there's going to be a coin toss, how will it be conducted?  Not to be paranoid or anything, but the way this information has come out has me a little paranoid toward the ECAC.  Probably unfounded, but what can I say?  I'm getting old?

3.  This was an entirely foreseeable possibility the way the ECAC West is constructed.  How do you implement tie breaking procedures that can easily end in a coin toss?  That seems to be horribly bad planning by the league.  Also, if you make a change this big, as the NCAA did with its selection criteria this year, you should make it as public as possible.

OK, rant over.  Any answers would be appreciated!
