    should prevail rather than some statistical crap. Hmm, I see the games were played at Augs earlier this year.
    New to D3? This is great compared to way it used to be.

    somewhat sarcasm alert..

    Oh, even the 2008 SNC team, which finished 27-1-4 couldn't beat Gustavus that year, or the 2017 Norwich team couldn't beat Endicott. It's a matter of making sure you beat them at the right time!

    We could explain it to him, again.

    Pairwise rankings are composed of 3 components, each worth 1 “point”, with RPI being the tiebreaker. The three components are: Record Head-to-head, Record against Common-Opponents, RPI (conglomeration of winning %, opponent’s W%, Opponents’ opponent’s W%). So, not only are SNC and Augsburg being compared to each other, but every other team in the nation. The number of comparisons won against all others = their relative rank in PWR. With 83 teams in D3 this season, the max number of comparisons won is 82...UWSP.

    Augsburg won 75 comparisons, SNC won 79, hence the higher seed.

    In other parts of this board they’d say “Simple Math”

    They might have squeaked out a tie.

    Yes and that is why a game with St. Norbert is special. You know it is the top level of the D3 athletic landscape.

    I'm not gonna lie, we are due.

    And based on the series we had back in December, so is SNC.

    Should be a great game.
