    Yup sucks even more if you have a large crowd following, reminds me of a few years ago when Oswego went there, Rink capacity is on the small side like Hobarts, good luck getting a ticket if they make it and you had interest in going.

    What might Augsburg's SOS move to, by virtue of their last game against St Thomas? Is it likely to break the .500 barrier?

    No need to worry about that as Augsburg will defeat U$T on Saturday night and make it in.

    Cool. I'm certainly not worried about it and would imagine Augsburg is the favorite in that one.

    If you wanna pull a Pool C bid out of the MIAC, a team would be best served to bring a regular season record like St. John's did in '04-'05 (not that it's impossible - see St. Thomas in '11-'12.)

    Anything can happen in a given conference tournament, for instance, and a couple of upset wins in one of those those events can easily undo the RS, and award wildly exponential value to 2 or 3 games over a weekend.

    Except in the WIAC and ECAC-W, a win is a win and a loss is a loss as they don't have the AQ.

    Yes. And I'd like to see that apply across the board.

    Ummm... OK. So you're saying that ND is someone's statistical favorite? IDTS.

    To your "point", the FBS system was a lot better than the coach's poll, and a better metric than any other major college sport uses.

    Sure, people had problems with it, but I'd guess that those folks never did the math. (Eg, just because some peoples' heads exploded when TCU won their last game a couple of years back and was overtaken by a team one spot behind them which had a better win that same day, didn't mean that TCU deserved to stay where they were, on the basis of an entire season.)

    That sort of statistical integrity is what many of you apparently fail to appreciate. The last game you play counts no more than any other game you play, if you are evaluating a single season in a logical sense.

    But that wasn't what the original question was about which I responded to.

    Based on the original question, I stand by my answer.

    What you are bringing up is an entirely different (albeit, should not be ignored) topic.

    The Division III culture has decided - for better or worse - that the way to award NC bids is to emphasize conference championships. The conferences have decided (in all sports) that the way to award a championship is through a conference tournament. The formulae for determining field size has also created an increasing number of conferences being formed that (magically) have just about 7 teams. The best way to get to a point at which there are more at large bids is to increase the minimum size of a conference for an AQ from 7 to 10. There would be a consolidation of conferences - the number of Pool A slots would go down, the number of Pool B and C slots would correspondingly increase. Pool C slots largely come from the excess teams in conferences (the number of teams in conferences in excess of 6.5). This is not just a hockey thing, this same effect is found in every DIII sport. The conferences, want their tournaments to mean something, so they award their Pool A slot to the winner of the tournament. You can argue philosophy all you want, but that is how it plays out given the way the NCAA does things in all sports. Teams and fans need to play in the system that exists. We can argue all we want about what would be better, but it would require agreement from more than just hockey people to change this. There are a lot of entrenched interests and conference philosophies that would have to be changed. In particular, the "little" conferences in all sports like the system as it works. If you think the CCC or the MASCAC is going to voluntarily give up their AQ in hockey or award their AQ to the regular season champion, you are not thinking.
