    Makes no sense to me to put Air Force/Western Michigan in Providence....

    Not happy about Union's draw, but you got screwed. I can't comprehend why Union or BU didn't swap with Western Michigan to play in Providence.

    Speaking of having it both ways. Here's a dummy talking about "advanced metrics" and failing to cite the small sample size of his "point"
    Go BU!

    Appears the goal was to get a 2nd eastern team to manchester. So that is why cornell got switched. Cornell and AF were only separated in pwr by 1 slot. Also i do remember the committee saying they try to set up bracket integrity for the QFs. And that is exactly what we would have. 1 v 8 etc

    If BU had lost to UML in final would BUs bracket changed?

    Yes, BU would have been a #1 seed, probably in Manchester.

    I asked that in the Pairwise thread and someone said they would've moved up to 4 and been a one seed. I don't see how that would be possible losing to UML in the final, but I'm not a PWR person, so that could be true.

    ETA - Or what Tater said.

    This scenario Jofa asked about still has UML winning Hockey East. Just BU winning Friday night would have made them a #1 seed.

    people seem to forget there's a part that comes after a blocked shot

    edit: and there's a hell of a lot of difference of getting a D-shot blocked down low versus up high... losing it up high often means the other team takes it... unless you're us and you play every **** puck presented, ever. Down low... hell, some times its just as effective as a pass

    Zero fans, since Moses Brown does not have an ice rink.

    Diffley and Switzer have the same sample size....so let's talk sample size....3 goals in 6 games vs 4 goals in 37 games and he's allegedly 1st team all hockey east...suck on that dummy

    Let's not jump to the conclusion BUTogether is a person.

    ah ha...

    didn't someone write last week that the 4-5-6 group at the time (western, goofs, terriors) were set up where in that order whomever won a game was going to get 4?
