No they didn't, at least if you're referring to the NCHC as the "super league".

" . . . where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence . . ."

In the past three weekends, the "super conference" has won 11 and lost 2 in games against those teams left behind in the WCHA.

Most of us will miss the WCHA. There is some great tradition there. But once the big boys in the big ten made their decision, changes were bound to happen. We move on.

" . . . where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence . . ."You said they had a 57% winning record against the teams left behind. Even if we include the UNO-UAH games (UAH was left behind a long time ago) I think the NCHC had a 7-4-1 record last weekend against the "left behind" teams. If you think that equates to 57%, I suggest you get out your pen and paper again.

For further clarification:
UND 2-0 vs. UAA
UMD 2-0 vs. MTU
WMU 2-0 vs. Ferris St.
UNO 1-1 vs. UAH
SCSU 0-1-1 vs. BSU
Miami 0-2 vs. NMU

My guess is you counted CC's win vs. DU as a win for those left behind, and a loss for the NCHC. But, of course, that would be silly since they are both NCHC teams.

Let me know if you need additional "evidence."

Twelve games, seven wins. 7/12 = 58% Still not so "super" for many sports fans. The other 1% was for ND, which the superteams conference would have loved to recruit and which went 0fer2 last weekend.
Yes, I would appreciate more evidence than a 1% swing to be convinced by your argument.

Okaaaay. Do the math however you'd like. I'll just have "faith that reason" will let people judge whether 7-4-1 equates to 58%

I get 63%, but what do I know.

If the "super league" you refer to is the NCHC, then the teams left behind are Alaska, Tech, Mankato, and Bemidji. The teams forming the new national conference had no control over what the Big Ten teams did and who was left behind by that decision. The NCHC's teams' record against the remaining teams in the WCHA was pretty one-sided. Does that make the change preferrable? Probably not, but the implication was that the National conference would not be that strong. It seems there will be fewer soft games in that conference schedule than any conference in the country.

Wins - 7, games played - 12, winning ratio 7:12 , seven divided by twelve = 58% When people refuse to recognize the validity of arithmetic it's no wonder the U.S. can't manage its finances, nobody, including congress, can agree about much of anything, and slates of candidates are what they are.

7-4-1 is what I used. When figuring winning percentage using ties it's 7.5 divided by 12. Try that once and see what you get. Rinkpig is a way better troll then you.

Hockey statistics certainly are different. So if a team plays five game and ties all five it has a 50% winning record, even though it has not won a game?
I imagine a legislator developed this statistic, which kinda lies in your face. Apparently they have also made conjunctions and adverbs interchangeable.
Yup, it's tougher and tougher to communicate if you value accuracy and clarity.

What's the point of bringing up congress twice now? Trying to be a political troll in the hockey forum? :confused: Weird.

Yup!
Team A is 0-0-5, .500 winning%, and 5 points in the league.
Team B is 2-3-0, .400 winning%, and 4 points in the league.
Government Conspiracy!

Equal number of wins and losses = .500 winning %. Even if that number is zero. Shocking. :eek:

Osorojo is probably a WCHA ref, hence his conspiracy against UND.
