The USCHO PWR show the same as what CHN now shows, but USCHO doesn't have an article stating something was changed. Did someone simply drop the ball on reporting this in the offseason when it was most likely changed? As someone else pointed out, I don't see any source or a date given for when this was allegedly changed.

TUCs are stupid anyways. They should've just gotten rid of it altogether and switched to KRACH.

I agree the KRACH is a better ranking system.

They did this midseason? How is that possible?

Very possible they went into a smoke filled room and concocted the idea.

Is the Committe embarassed that the current #1 teams has to throw out so many wins because of the "cupcakedness" of its schedule? Is this an attempt to remove some of the "*"s from the rpi?

Good point!!! I think the fact remains that if you keep stuffing your face with "cupcakes" eventually you will get fat... I wonder if the NCAA is trying to help along a few other struggling teams so the NCAA tourney isn’t stuff full of teams from the “West”… I don't like the fact that they changed the rules in the middle of the game, it makes them look like a bunch of bumbling buffoons.

Speaking from experience there, Goon? :p

I don't disagree with your assessment.. but I thought I heard they did this last summer when discussing some of the on ice rule changes.

It'll be funny when Yale doesn't make the tournament this year! Every Yale fan will start their own personal thread!
Yale will be in. I know this because in the Yale Cheater thread it's been established that Yale is "for realz" and that they will be sending a minimum of 10 really fast skating players each season directly to the NHL for the next decade +.

Despite that, Michigan is projected to have the best recruiting classes........

If they did it last summer, why not announce the change then? Coming out now, it looks bad.

Did anyone even announce it? This doesn't just look bad, this looks like pizz-poor management.

I'm not saying it doesn't look bad. Baffling. Just more fodder for Jayson and company to examine.

Don't forget, there's only one real Pairswise, the rest of them are caluclated for something to talk about.

So this is still almost 3 months ahead of the single Pairswise that matters.

O.K. so why does it just come out now? It's not very transparent in my opinion... Still makes them look like a bunch of bumbling buffoons.

They may use similar criteria, but I've never seen them say "this is the system we use".

Although that still says just the top 25 in the RPI.

Aren't those the 2010 guidelines? The pub is dated Feb 2010, any offseason changes aren't going to be there.

As a an unofficial quasi-representative of the current #27 Pairwise team I just want to say to #26 thru #34 .. "See ya ..." It's been lovely for this short time to be in your presence at this end of the table but we'll be moving up shortly. Best of luck to each of you.
Bwahahaha!!! Oh my god that's funny!
