I think #7 E is accurate, but Endicott, Hobart and Oswego are not where they ought to be, in mine.
Do tell, I'm curious... And I invite Birdwatcher, NUP, and everyone else to do the same.
It's easy to hide behind the status quo, but somewhat more difficult to defend it.

https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/icehockey-men/d3 I will be honest, I rejected the reasoning for many years because i didn't see it their way...but after you understand how they set up their party...it is fair and the numbers do not lie !
"FEAR THE BIRD!"
D3 is a massive entity in all sports, spanning the country from coast to coast. This isnít the only sport where teams that have never seen each other, and have no common opponents, are compared. With a much more limited schedule and budget than D1, the NCAA decided that criteria with some room for subjectivity would be best, and I donít disagree. So, accept what it is, and trust in the league/school reps to make good decisions, or keep beating your head against the wall. Only one of those choices will kill you
Looking at Utica(and I know all of D3's logistics) I see, UC beat #1 Salvina, tied #4 Oz, in Oswego and Oz pulled their goalie in the last minute to get the fortunate tie, and lost to #1 Adrean away by one goal.
They are 20-5 in a weaker league(SOS hurts) not their fault Hobart left the league. No AQ (again) ECAC West I believe was supposed to get one this yr but the name changed and they added new teams.
They can play with "anybody" in D3 (except the two hiccups against Elmira)
Looks like even with a win Saturday beating Elmira they aren't going to make it.
League Champions and maybe Tourney Champs(IF they win)
They get royally screwed, of course it's all mute if the lose Saturday, I would assume.
I follow D1 but D3 has to change their rules. Just my .02 cents.
It all starts with the goaltending.
Has the "wrong" team ever won a title? Does anyone believe that an excluded team would have been the Last Team Standing?
If so, which one and what year??

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?
