    Need to get the Illini team installed asap, as otherwise Bentley will be entrenched in the cellar for the forseeable furure.

    Looked back at his post from 2011, UMD was ranked #20 at that time. It's been an exciting 9 years to be a Bulldog fan.

    If I remember correctly, neither was RIT in 2010. UAH snuck into that tournament from last place in the CHA, making RIT the # 15. That was one of DU's gripes that the bracket didn't protect the # 1 seed.
    Can't we all just get along?
    Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

    DU's problem was that once it was determined that you fly, you can be placed anywhere. That gave the committee a reason to put more of the #1 seeds closer to home. Not to mention, Denver was the #2 seed. Miami was #1. By closest regional, Denver could have been placed in the St. Paul region. That would have put Wisconsin as the #1 in Albany. If you take the brackets that were set up, Denver-Cornell-UNH-RIT makes more sense for attendance in Albany and Wisconsin-St. Cloud-Northern Michigan-Vermont made more sense in St. Paul.

    Thank you to the volunteers thus far. It makes this process significantly easier.

    So far, I have:

    Atlantic Hockey: komey1
    ECAC: drshoen
    NCHC: SiouxfaninSeattle

    If anyone is interested in doing the writeups for Hockey East, Big Ten, and/or WCHA, please let me know. I'll take care of the Independents .

    Below is a sample of how the countdown will go this year, and the type of writeup that I am looking for (without the specific points/rankings/etc. that I will put in):

    #96 - Minot State University Beavers
    Points: 18.0172
    Points in 2088-2089: 0.5812 (Rank: 61)
    Points in the 2080s: 12.0861 (Rank: 32)
    NCAA Achievements in the Decade: 2084 NCAA Northwest Regional Semifinalist; 2085 NCAA Semifinalist
    Conference Achievements in the Decade: NIHC Conference Regular Season Champions: 2084, 2085; NIHC Conference Tournament Champions: 2085

    Minot State had its best decade in the Division 1 era, making its first ever trip to the Frozen Four in 2085, and winning back-to-back NIHC Regular Season titles for the first time in program history. The Beavers struggled in the early years of the 2080s, going a combined 47-80-8 in the first three seasons, which led to the dismissal of head boss Barry Bradford following the 2081-2082 campaign. MSU turned to native son Mark Morelli, a former Beaver blueliner, to helm the program, and Morelli did not disappoint. The Beavers began to turn things around in the 2082-2083 season, winning 20 games for just the program's fifth time. In 2083-2084, Beaver Tech lifted the NIHC Regular Season Championship for just the third time. The Beavers won their First Round game over Minnesota, but fell to #1 seed, and host, Oregon in the Northwest Regional Semifinal. The 2084-2085 season was the highlight of the decade for MSU. Morelli's squad captured both the NIHC Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships, and were the #1 seed in the Northwest Regional. Minot State knocked off Lindenwood in the First Round, before taking down Cornell in the Semifinals to set up an epic showdown in the Northwest Regional Final against #2 seed and defending National Champion Michigan Tech. After spotting the Huskies an early goal, the Beavers scored three in a row in the middle stanza, and held on for a 3-1 win to earn the program's first Frozen Four trip. Unfortunately for Minot State, eastern powerhouse, and #1 overall seed, Bentley awaited the Beavers, and a sterling display in net by Hobey Baker winner Aaron Pelino catapulted the Falcons past MSU. Minot State was up and down the rest of the decade. The Beavers finished in the top 3 of the NIHC in both 2086 and 2088, but failed to make the NCAA Tournament. The 2090s do look promising though, as the freshman class on last year's squad led the team in goals, and MSU lost only 3 seniors from the 2088-2089 team. All-American netminder John David Wilson, who returns for his junior season, may be the key to Minot State's success early on in the next decade, as the Beavers look to keep rising in these rankings.

    Is there a choke factor component to your ranking?

    Just curious, where does "powerhouse" Bentley rank in 2089? :-)

    Not specifically, but I suppose it does factor into the rankings. For example, if the Gophers hadnt choked away the 80s and 90s they might be ranked a bit higher.

    Let me look into the crystal ball...

    34th overall. But they were in the top 5 in the 2070s and 2080s.

    how about 1968 to 1978 a better time for all.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    You do realize the difference between being bad and choking right?

    I'll start entering in the data here over the next few weeks, but we should be able to start these rankings probably towards the end of May or early June. I believe I still need volunteers for the B1G, WCHA, and Hockey East. If you are interested, please post here, or shoot me an email.

    Initial thoughts:

    Minnesota Duluth will jump to #9, and will likely be within striking distance of Michigan State.

    Massachusetts will make a big leap, certainly into the Top 40, and perhaps into the Top 35.

    Denver continues to edge closer to Minnesota, but will stay at #4.

    Providence likely jumped past New Hampshire to solidify a Top 20 spot, but unlikely to challenge RPI for #17.

    SCSU likely pushed its way into the Top 30, and Mankato likely jumped back into the Top 40, but both programs really missed an opportunity to climb even further.

    AIC will likely eek out of the bottom 5, and will be close with UAH and Robert Morris.

    Arizona State will leap out of the cellar. I think they'll creep by Connecticut, but I doubt they'll challenge Canisius.

    In the past decade 4 programs earned their first title (Minnesota Duluth, Yale, Providence, and Union), and 6 programs made their first trip to the NCAA Tournament (Alaska, American International, Arizona State, Canisius, and Penn State). Only 4 active programs have failed to make the NCAA Tournament: Army, Bentley, Connecticut, and Sacred Heart.

    Need another new Div 1 team ASAP (Illinois?), so that Bentley can once again get out of the cellar.

    That's only five. The sixth should be RIT (first trip 2010).
