    Certainly more than the polls...

    Kindly direct me to a better objective metric, and I'll be all-in on that.

    We're dealing with enough smoke and mirrors in Washington, rigged systems, bald-faced lies, and just simple BS; let's make D-3 hockey a bastion of factual information, FCS, and lead our nation ahead towards the millennium!

    A half-way decent statistical analysis -even the RPI- carries far more logical credence than a throw-away beauty contest, don't ya think?

    But, if they "fixed " it, I'd honestly like to hear your take on that. There always seems to be a man be hind the curtain to ignore in D-3. If they agreed on any sort of objective measure, there goes the controversy.
    I only like the polls when Utica isnt involved.

    Entertainment. Simple as that.

    And it also gets these organizations which run the polls free advertising, as they are mentioned numerous times by other outlets.

    Seriously? Are you that dense? Someone realized that 13 votes for Trine were really meant for Trinity (and they may have asked the voter to verify that). So, the 13 votes were switched to Trinity. That's all. Sheesh...

    Now why in the world do you think that your reference was obvious? I never mentioned any such thing.

    Talk about "dense".

    I have a head cold right now. So, I definitely feel dense...

    You were implying some man behind the curtain when it was a simple logical look at what happened to the voting between Trine and Trinity.
