    No. To successfully bribe the Commissioner, you will need:

    Death Wish Coffee- 5 lb bag
    A case of St. Julian Social Butterfly
    A case of Apothic Rosé
    A mammoth jar of kosher dill pickles
    New Holland Dragon's Milk
    New Holland Passion Blaster
    About a month's supply of Whole Earth Stevia/monk fruit sweetener
    A loaf of brioche
    A loaf of challah
    Homemade raspberry jam
    Industrial size jar of Nutella

    In all likelihood, October's Top 6 will be:

    1. RPI
    2. SLU
    3. UAA
    4. Merrimack
    5. Connecticut
    6. Ferris State

    We will see about a nerd school 99 miles northwest of Marquette...

    But as I said, several Atlantic Hockey schools are in the Sludge 16. Sludge, because there's nothing sweet about them.

    As some of them should be. It's just refreshing as a fan of an Atlantic Hockey team that the conference bottom doesn't rank at the top of the MARS rankings.

    Let's just say it helps that teams like Merrimack and UConn are in way over their heads in Hockey East.

    And komey1, it REALLY helps that RPI, UAA, and SLU have been hot garbage for so long, they're preseason favorites every time I start the MARS system.

    Last year, we introduced Pillow Fight of the Week, featuring the suckiest teams squaring off against each other. This week, we have two Pillow Fights to watch:

    UAA vs. Maine
    UAH vs. Omaha

    And holy shhhhh... Maine and Omaha were the far superior teams last night. This is why UAH and UAA are top 5 teams.

    October MARS will be out next week.

    Plenty of WCHA, ECAC, and Atlantic Hockey teams. There will be representatives from the Big 7 and the Nacho too. And we may have a new entry into the top 5.

    I'd like to respectfully nominate the University of Illinois as host institution for all rounds of that other tournament. So much talk and so little action should be rewarded, IMO.

    6. Sacred Heart
    7. Colgate
    8. Canisius
    9. Merrimack
    10. Daloot
    11. Western Michigan
    12. Lake State
    13. Miami- the one in Ohio
    14. Michigan State
    15. Air Force
    16. UConn

    So right now, conference breakdown:

    Big 7: 1
    Hockey East: 2
    ECAC: 4
    Nacho: 3
    WCHA: 2
    Atlantic: 4

    Could be an AH/ECAC showdown this year in the Futile 4.

    This could be a theme. All the schools who have been profiled as a potential jump to D-1 hockey (Oakland U, Minnesota-Moorhead, St. Thomas, etc.) could be utilized.

    I'm also going to lean on MissT and Fade for their input to the Northern Winter Solstice (NoWinS) midseason tournament field and host location in the coming weeks.
