For UWSP and UWEC, maybe it should be titled:
The 2014 Edition of My Team Got Screwed by my conference giving up an automatic bid for questionable reasons thread.

I'll say one thing, I used to only look at the USCHO poll and wonder how the crazy decisions were made. I recently checked out the other polls/rankings (NCAA rankings, pairwise, etc.), and the picture gets a lot less "obvious". Good luck all!

L25 is a bad stat that favors some regular-season over other regular-season games, and uses a tiny sample size in a division where teams only play 25 (or fewer) regular-season games as it is. It shouldn't be a primary criterion at all, let alone one that the NCAA seems to be giving a ridiculous amount of weight. I'm not sure exactly which selection I'll use to lodge this complaint, but I'll definitely find a way to use it somewhere, darnit.

This entire thread must be what it means when someone has "uptown problems".

Yessss. Actually, now that I look at it, some Western poster might be able to sweep the U column with a single, relatively concise post.

Utica has about as much right being on this list as Stonehill !! I think you might want to add Plattsburgh, they will be the 3rd and final Pool C after Adrian & Geneseo.

You can't win bingo with one ball. it takes 4 or 5 balls to win.

I forgot to mention that Utica is a free space. Everyone can claim Utica!

I like the idea of the L25 and it should carry some weight. There is a saying "What have you done for me lately". The L25 shows if a team is on the rise or is falling down on the stretch run. A team that has a 20-5 record that has lost five games during the course of the season should be given more consideration over a team that loses the final five games. For some teams it may take a portion of the season to jell and get their chemistry together.

It should still take into account who those games were against!!

Fine. If I'm Adrian or SNC I'm doing everything in my power to make sure that my last four regular season games consist of a series each against Northland and Finlandia. Get those four wins, get past the 1st round opponent, and at the absolute worst I'm looking at 6-1 in my L25.
