    Re: WCHA Pick 'Em 2017-2018

    Jack Hittinger, WCHA beat writer for USCHO.com, was the week 18 co-winner with 24 points. Jack correctly picked the winner of all 8 games. Congrats, Jack! There were 431 SOGs across all 8 games this week. By guessing 432 SOGs and pocketing 9 bonus points, TalonsUpPuckDown overcame some “challenged” picking this week (as in “what was I thinking?”) to join Jack as this week’s co-winner. BGFan (1), John J. MacInnes (3), and Soulbeaver (3) were the only other players to pick up bonus points this week.

    Soulbeaver trails SweeneyHawksHockey by only 1 game in the race for the Mason Cup. Still a 3-way fight between these two and mbenecke for the McNaughton. Looks like 10 are in the hunt for those final few playoff spots.

    Two weeks left. Eight games and another 10-point bonus on tap for week 19. Reminder there are two Thursday night games this week.

    Creative bump. Reminder there are Thursday games this week.

    Here's a chart showing how many times a team has been picked over the course of the season (through week 18). Lots of Tech believers out there...

    Oh no! I missed a game because I was so busy at work today I didn’t put in my picks at the usual time.

    The penultimate week is in the books with Mich Tech 64 correctly picking the winners of all 8 games and posting the high score of 23. There were so many penalties this week (261) that no one came close to picking up any bonus points. We have some WCHA teams that belong in the Federal League.

    This is it. Do or die. Gut check time. Must win situation. The folks on the bubble are still very much alive as long as they’re peaking at the right time. There is no tomorrow. It all comes down to this. 10 games on tap with a 10-point bonus (and it’s one you've seen before!). Lots of toss-up matchups this week that could go either way. Hardware and playoff spots are up for grabs. Thread the needle this week and you could be lauded as one of the Pick ‘Em GOATs.

    Good luck, everyone!

    Going into the final weekend here's a brief rundown on some of the more interesting matchups.

    There is a 3-person race for the McNaughton Cup (regular season champion) between SweeneyHawksHockey, soulbeaver, and mbenecke.
    For soulbeaver to win the McNaughton Cup:
    + Alabama Huntsville must win on Fri AND
    o Lake Superior must win on Sat AND
    o Bemidji must win on Sat

    For mbenecke to win the McNaughton Cup:
    o LSSU must beat FSU on Sat AND
    o Governor’s Cup SOGs must be between 92 and 100

    SweeneyHawksHockey wins the McNaughton Cup if none of the above happens.


    It’s a good ol’ fashioned donnybrook between SweeneyHawksHockey and soulbeaver for the Mason Cup (highest points percentage).
    For soulbeaver to win the Mason Cup, at least 2 of the 3 teams below must win:
    + Fri - Alabama Huntsville
    o Sat - Lake Superior
    o Sat - Bemidji State

    SweeneyHawksHockey wins the Mason Cup if the above does not happen.


    At the other end of the standings, there’s a 3-person dogfight for the last playoff spot between <3_Blizzard, UAFIceAngel, and HockeyJohn.
    For UAFIceAngel to make the top 16:
    + Ferris State must win on Friday AND
    o Northern Michigan must win on Saturday AND
    o Governor’s Cup SOG's must be between 110 and 117

    For HockeyJohn to make the top 16:
    + Ferris State must win on Friday AND
    - Michigan Tech must win on Friday AND
    o Governor’s Cup SOG's must be between 94 and 96

    <3_Blizzard makes the playoffs if none of the above happens.


    Good luck!

    Edit -- Hockey John needed Tech to win on Fri, not NMU.
