    As such...it is the ranking that matters...KRACH, Massey and the voter polls determine zip.
    Get it yet?
    If you are ranked in the Top Ten of the PWR, what does it really matter? For a fan of a program that has been to just ONE single FF, but who claims to have won multiple Conf Titles or Conf Tourneys, you would think that you understood this better than anyone???

    KRACH and Massey Ratings have BOTH been found to be better predictors of who will do well come tourney time, THAT is why they matter. The fact you don't get this is what astounds me.

    Being buried? With what? Insults that are meaningless, are just that, meaningless. And multiple schools??? There are more teams in the NCHC than SCSU right? OH, good, I can see that you can add. Good for you.

    And I do have a clue. You claiming I do not says what about your own abilities of perception???

    I don't care what ratings say who will do well...ratings do not determine who wins.
    To be honest...for me...ALL ratings mean little.
    But again and for the last time...the PWR matters because it picks the tourney...that's it...nothing more.
    After that...ratings mean diddly.

    I'm willing to make my prediction, are any of you insecure JBSU fans???

They may not require such an advanced course at JBSU, but you UMn grads have to know what I am talking about,
    Ok, you said you aren't sure that SCSU will win more than they lose. So you are going to back that up with how much money?

    Who are these SCSU fans??? Just because they are #1 in the PWR at this early point in the season, you have to be a MORON to question their ranking??? WTph is up with that?

    How dare I question it? How dare I analyze their schedule, its weaknesses and strengths? How dare I bring up anything before this season. How dare I go against the majority, or at least the majority in this thread?

    Let me break it down like this, window-licker: If the only thing that matters is the tournament, then rankings/ratings that don't have any bearing on the tournament are meaningless. The PWR are the only ones that have any relevance to the tournament. SCSU is #1 in those rankings. Which, if they hold, will mean that we get an easier draw relative to other teams. So, by earning the #1 ranking in the Pairwise to this point, SCSU has put themselves in a better position to succeed in the NCAA tournament than any other team in college hockey.

    You claim our schedule is weak....it's rated 6th according to your precious KRACH so if that's weak...what the hell is strong besides MN?
    You claim we've peaked and won't go better than .500 from here out. Based on what?
    You claim all this BS about us...with zero to back it up other than your mouth.

    I'll check the Vegas odds and get back to you. But otherwise, YES, I am very willing to back up my talk with cash. Something I seriously doubt SCSU fans are willing to do.

    Right now I have 2 posters saying SCSU will win 13 games. Until I hear from a few more what their predictions are, it would be hard to establish any kind of base to work with. I'd feel very guilty taking advantage of just 2 posters who are obviously delusional, or who simply made reckless predictions knowing no money was at stake.

    The base we have to work with is the first jagoff to open his mouth, which was you. You said you aren't sure they will win half their games. So I bet you that SCSU wins over half their remaining games and I will give you 3 to 1 odds. How much money do you want to bet and then welch on? $50? $100? $500?

    Dude, I apparently am just smarter than you, and all of your simple minded SCSU fellows, I'm hoping to make some money off of you and your fellow SCSU fans, lol, or if not money, than to at least have some fun at your expense, lol. So I'm not about to divulge my secrets now. I've already posted too much. The fact that you and your fellow SCSU fans are unable to accept reality is something I am banking on!!! You are right, I have ZERO to back up what I say, I'm just a full of sh1t blow hard. I've just been talking smack, trying to get your goat, that is all.

    LMMFAO, 3 to 1 odds??? SCSU is the #1 ranked team in the entire country, in the only rating system that matters, and all you are willing to give me is 3 to 1 odds that they lose 8 of their remaining 15 games? You must think I'm the moron some here have suggested I am???

    What, the almighty NUMBER ONE ranked SCSU Huskies, #1 in the only rating system that matters, needs only give 3 to 1 odds that it can win more games than it loses the rest of the regular season???

    That is the most PATHETIC excuse of fandom I've ever seen.


    Where in the hell does all of this SCSU bravado come from if you aren't even certain your team will win more than half its remaining games????

    I mean, at least 2 posters so far posted that SCSU would win 13 of their remaining 15 games. So I'd expect far better odds than 3 to 1 that they will win only 8 games.


    Man, you SCSU fans talk a lot of smack, but end up being total poosies. All talk, no walk.

    Re: Big Ten > NCHC

    Personally I feel pretty good about guessing that SCSU goes 9-6 for the rest of the regular season (counting ties as .5). I'd put the over at about -150 on that line.

    I feel less confident on 10-5. There I'd put the over at maybe +120, with the under at maybe -125.

    The NCHC, night in and night out, is the toughest to play against, and 14 of their 15 remaining games are conference games, with a real good Mankato team as their only remaining non-conference foe.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

Had I chose the West Point route, it would have added an additional 9 years to my contract and anyone having put in 13 years, especially someone having graduated from WP, would surely feel it best to serve another 7, so that they could get retirement benefits. So, finish up my last 3 years of my contract, or stick with the Army for another 19 years???

    Not a tough choice for someone who, while never regretting serving my country, didn't want to be a professional soldier his whole life.

    I wanted to be a drug and alcohol abuse counselor, and hence why I went to UMD, that was a niche program they had there.
    Sure, Oxford was an option for me, but SCSU just offered so much more in terms of convenience.

    Re: Big Ten > NCHC

    And to add to my recent post. I think 9-6 wins SCSU the Penrose, and also keeps them in position for a #1 seed in the NCAA's, pending the conference tournament.

    I've got plenty, just not dumb enough to tell you all of my inside info, when I'm trying to induce you to bet against me!!! I want either your money, or to make you look bad. I could care less about "looking smart".

    It is YOU who has nothing. You talk a lot of smack, but aren't willing to back it up. Just a blowhard.

    Wow, finally an intelligent post. I like your thinking in this post SJHovey.
