And here I thought you didn’t like BC much, judging by how you taunt Eagles fans on the boards....


...I don’t dislike BC; my interaction with the Eagles’ fan base is primarily with one fan, whom I first met almost eight years ago and like as well;
Oh that is just fantastic. Cheers :D

I'm glad it's finally back. I started a weekly women's thread over on reddit in the college hockey subreddit this year and have been waiting for these to start up again. I find these to be a great overview of women's college hockey and wanted this column to be one of mandatory links I incorporated in my post. So thanks for doing these it helped me get an understanding of D1 women's hockey when I first started reading them when RIT moved up four years ago and hopefully I get a few more redditors reading WW.

big gap between the top teams and the rest?

here are the combined records of the teams the top 4 have played, plus the goals for and against for those teams:
Minnesota W13 - L20 GF75 - GA124
Wisconsin W12 - L17 GF60 - GA122
Boston C W11 - L24 GF79 - GA124
Clarkson W11 - L27 GF90 - GA135

interesting that by the numbers, MN & BC, they must be playing the same teams
in fact, MI & WI nearly have, up until last week, which accounts for the small difference in their numbers

the only team these 4 teams have played that has a winning record:

Bemidji who is 6-2-2 and has scored 18 goals and given up 15 (7 of them in losing twice to WI)

the only other team to score more than they have given up:
Syracuse, who has scored 24 goals and given up 18 but is 3-4, beaten by Clarkson once

IOW, the statistics of these teams are somewhat inflated
wait a few weeks, as was said in the column, before drawing any conclusions about the difference between the top and the rest

Not arguing that the stats aren't inflated, but you have to remove the games played against the four teams you are looking at from the records and stats of their opponents. That's basic methodology for this kind of analysis.

Yeah "the teams that have played undefeated teams have all lost a lot" is kind of a scorching hot take lol

Also "wow these teams that have played teams that score a lot of goals have given up a lot of goals" haha

IOW, ...

apparently you two DB's failed to read this, reading the forum, fans of MN, WI, BC talk as if ... well let's use brooyone's thread title: ...confection free"
are you kidding me? the MN schedule this year is no different than the one BC played last year

somewhat surprising that eeyore would skip over the conclusion, given eeyore is such an expert on statistics, scientific design, and come to think of it law, hockey, ... just about everything, why waste time reading the statistics and critiqing the methodology when the conclusion is there is too little data to draw any conclusion.

yeah, throw out the games against cupcakes, there are no games left for MN & BC

IOW,take off your Maroon and Gold (cardinal & white for the cheeseheads) glasses
your teams are feasting on cupcakes

Call the fire department because pokechecker is just spewing blazing hot takes this morning.

Anyway you missed the point that both of us are making which is that you are making a calculation error. We said no more nor less than that. In fact Eeyore said "Not arguing that the stats aren't inflated..."

But you know this.

The basic difference between the top (MN, BC, WI) and the rest is that these three teams are definitely playing in the national championship tournament. Can't say that about any other teams right now.

all of these arguments mean nothing until the teams play each other. nobody can figure out who is better. not a scholar nor Will Hunting.

TTT cut him some slack...heard he got a 12 on the math section of the ACT.

all of these arguments mean nothing until the teams play each other.I just hope that they do. I'm still bummed that last season ended w/o ever getting to see BC versus Wisconsin or Minnesota. Carpenter played each of those teams in her first two seasons, but the sport really needs it to happen now. I wish we had a tournament more like the NCAA men did ~ 40 years ago where East #1 played West #2 in one semi and West #1 played East #2 in the other.

The whole cupcake discussion last year was based on the wcha being superior to hockey east and therefore BC's schedule was softer than um's or uw's. Is that still the case? I'll leave that up to everyone's imagination.

I hear you, but given that there are only 8 teams in a western conference...

I hear you, but given that there are only 8 teams in a western conference...Remember that the CHA is a western conference as far as the NCAA is concerned, although that doesn't solve the numerical inequity.
