A Cornell win ends Merrimack's chances.

I thought so, too, until I found this: UND, Maine, Union, WMU, AFA. I think that gets Merrimack in as the last. Right?

How do they break 3-way ties?

Merrimack would be tied for 15th, but would trail MSU and NMU in rpi.

I thought RPI was the tiebreaker, but I could be wrong.

Very strange situation here. Under this scenario, the comparison between NoMich and Merrimack is crucial. If it goes to NMU, there is a 3-way tie, and MSU gets the last spot, because of higher RPI. If it goes to Merrimack, Merrimack is a clean #15, no ties. USCHO's PairWisePredictor shows this compare going to NMU, by .5306 to .5305 in RPI. CHN's YATC, shows it falling to Merrimack, .5305 to .5305 in the RPI (in other words, the difference is in the 5th decimal place).

CLOSE!! WOW!! just WOW!!

At this point, I'm rooting for a tie and a smoke-filled room to break the tie in NMU's favor... :(

A small team like NMU, that would make a great story for being so close every year, gets to sit out because of the early exit to cinderella story Bowling Green.

... And Tom Anastos lucks into a *ing tournament trip in his first *ing year. :mad:

Lot of tie-breakers... who wins the 15th place tie-breaker? MSU with RPI? Another team with the NCAA's grey area?

I hope someone has the seedings the instant the last game goes final. I hope I can roadtrip somewhere We shall work on that. One little problem: The issue discussed above where USCHO and CHN don't agree about the NMU/Merrimack compare is still alive with only 2 games left. We will keep that in mind.
