UNO has good chances to get to 16 if they can pick up points in their remaining games. Especially against CC, Minnesota, and Denver. You have a major shot to shoot up in the PW right there.

They have said in the past they will not move teams around to make attendance better and right now the midwest would look like that unless they go against there word.

Remember I opened up by saying that it was a futile argument....but yes.. you followed my logic. Bracket integrity, travel, attendance in that order.

UNO is currently in 21st position in the Pairwise. Making the tournament would be impressive, but hardly shocking. Just last year CC was #21 at this point and made the field. In 2010, Alaska was #21 and Northern Michigan was #24. Other late bloomers: St Cloud (#22) in 2008, St. Lawrence (#21) in 2007 and Maine (#24) in 2006.
How come you neglected #26 Union? :p

Through some mathematical fluke, Union was #12 at this point last year :p

Three CCHA schools in Green Bay is pretty unavoidable with seven CCHA teams hanging around. Feels like that all WCHA Frozen Four all over again.

Minnesota is the host school in the Midwest. Therefore, they need to be in the Midwest. UMD would have to be moved to prevent a first round matchup between conference opponents.

This would be the worst possible draw for ohio state.

Yes, sorry. My mistake. I knew that but was thinking Midwest for some reason. Thanks.

Wait for UNO to sweep in and blow your minds!

And by blow your minds I mean make it into the tourny

We can't be splitting with the 11th place team on the road and blowing 3 different leads in the loss.

We give up too many goals and too many bad ones at that.

IMHO, UNO's schedule sets up for them favorably to get into the tourney, and I think they might still get it done, but they have to end the Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde inconsistency right away. They also, out of the blue, have started taking stupid penalties. 3 majors and game misconducts in the last 4 games.

All are signs of a young team, which UNO is in a big way. Focus has CLEARLY been something of an issue for this team this year. Hudson getting kicked off the team, Sustr's injury, and, our Head Coach and one of the team's leading scorer's disappearing for two weeks at mid-season (thanks, IIHF) certainly have not helped, either.

Don't know what your post has to do with bracketology, but okay.

T20th in the PWR with 10 games to go against Minn, Denver, Bemidji, MTU and CC would suggest to me that UNO will have to go 7-3, 8-2 just to try to slip in as a 4th seed at large, IF some other teams drop out. A better bet would be to win the WCHA tourney and get the autobid. Tall order there RC.

The issue might be that USCHO is not removing wins that hurt a team's RPI from the mix. The RPI data for teams that have beaten a weak opponent does not match. There are a few other RPI values that are a little off, so there may be another problem as well.
