I don't think we've done this before, but with the additional AQ for the MCHA let's see how good we are in picking the NCAA field BEFORE the first practice.

(a) Pick how many bids your conference will get (Pools A + B + C)
(b) Now for the tough part -- WHO gets the bid(s).

Deadline is 00:01 on 10/15/09.

Scoring:
You get 2 points for getting the # of bids right
You get -1 point for every # of bids you're off.

You get 3 points for every school you get right.
The tiebreaker is which school gets the Pool B bid.

Thus, you think the MCHA is going to get only 1 bid and pick Adrian for the bid. If MSOE gets the only bid, you would get +2 points for getting the bid right, but 0 points for the school.


Please fill out the ballot like this, as it will make the spreadsheet a lot easier:
USCHO Name:
School you root for:
# bids for ECAC - E school(s)
# bids for ECAC - NE school(s)
# bids for ECAC - W school(s)
# bids for MASCAC school(s)
# bids for NESCAC school(s)
# bids for SUNYAC school(s)
# bids for MCHA school(s)
# bids for MIAC school(s)
# bids for NCHA school(s)

Clearly he made the mistake of thinking the NCAA is capable of implementing an idea as outlandish as a balanced and symmetrical bracket.

LOL, someone once posted this (http://board.uscho.com/showpost.php?p=4374542&postcount=3), actually, I had to go back to see what you were talking about, I must have been looking at Superior (line above) and typed it:o

There is not a lot of love for the MASCAC is there? -- Not that I blame you. I have to look @ their OOC's to make sure, but I think most of them did not look at the math of the PWC to see how do draw up your OOC to all but assure an NCAA bid for the conference champion.

If there is a stats geek out there they can show the math and how it IS possible.

You rang?

I haven't looked at it yet, but given the way the committee is able to twist the PWCs, I'm not so sure. That's just a first impression based on no data.
