    This is interesting. It means there is no flight saving to the 3-band. NoDak is already locked into Fargo. And, the best you can do otherwise is to have Cornell in the east somewhere.

    I still think Penn State to Cincinnati to bring some fans makes a lot of sense.

    I have no reason not to believe that. We aren't talking ohio state football or hoops here.

    Subtract, and note how much it improves.
    Since Win%age is 25% of RPI, first add to their initial RPI, 1/4 of the resultant gain.
    Then, figure out the QWB for a neutral site win against BC. Add that as well. (Quick calc...add about .0003 or .0004)
    The result is very very very close to what their RPI would have been in the scenario you described.

    I get .0026 of gain, so they would hop Minnesota by about .0003 for that last #1.
    Unfortunately, there is also a schedule change there. So, let me think....Adding a game with UML would raise the Oppwin%. OppOpp wouldn't change much.
    I think they would have had the last #1. But, without the ability to do a full calculation, I can't say that for sure.
    BU would have been a #1 seed if they had made the HEA final:

    Has the NCAA ever concerned itself with a potential 2nd round game? I'm on my phone so I can't access it but I believe they put the overall #1 in the same bracket as the overall #5 one year. They aren't going to worry about the overall #10 (who they would assume will lose anyway)

    That has been my thought as well. Protect the number 1 in the first round sure. But they're not gonna guess at the second roundexcept maybe to put big rivalries in place for attendance

    Which is why providence will end up Harvard, bu, cornell, pc. Besides a cornell pc second day the rest have storylines

    Ah yes the stupid tweet nonsense before the official show.

    Committee got it right with denver to cincy. Now my next question will be if they ho straight bracket integrity in fargo or flip BU and Union.

    Close to last minute, but here's what I got.

    Fargo
    UMD
    Union
    NoDak
    OSU

    Cincy
    Denver
    WMU
    PSU
    Notre Dame

    ManchVegas
    Minny
    Lowell
    Air Force
    Tech

    Providence
    Harvard
    BU
    Cornell
    Providence


    I made the decision to forgo protecting Denver in Cincy to draw the Notre Dame crowd, as I don't believe Tech would draw that well regardless

    If they are going to screw Denver for attendance, they are going to swap Tech and Ohio State...not Tech and Notre Dame.

    I figured Notre Dame draws larger than OSU - but I may be wrong

    I don't see the committee screwing Denver at all, but if they do, I don't believe they'll pass up putting Ohio State in Ohio. Plus its only swapping 15/16 as opposed to 13/16.

    Denver to cincy is not a screw job. And even if it is denver-ohio state in Cincinnati i don't think that is either. Ohio state hockey fans if they exist will not be flocking to cincy. And i think montgomery would take this draw over maybe having to beat north dakota in fargo.

    If Denver is going to Cinci then

    Cinci - 1 Den, 6 WMU, 9 Penn St. 16 MTU
    Fargo - 2 UMD, 8 Union, 10 No Dak, 15 Ohio St.
    Prov - 3 Harv, 7 BU, 11 Cornell, 14 Prov
    Manch - 4 MN, 5 UML, 12 Air Force, 13 Notre Dame.

    Maybe swap Cornell and Air Force to get another eastern school in Manchester, but I'd guess that's it.
