    Atlantic Hockey Pick the Standings Contest 2019-2020

    Half the season is gone, so we are just going to process this for the remainder of the year. Enjoy yourself. Your prize is your name written at the top of this post next season. Very prestigious.

    Here is how it will work. The following is plagerized:

    Pick the Atlantic Hockey Standings at the end of the 2019-20 season in order from 1-11 (no ties). Playoff seedings determine the position of the teams in case of a regular season tie.

    Scoring is as follows: You will receive a score based on the square of the distance from your picks to the actual standings (e.g., if you pick a team in 4th but they finish in 7th, you get (7-4)2 or 9 points). Sum those up for the eleven Atlantic Hockey teams and you'll have a score between 0 and 440. The entrant with the lowest score will be our winner.

    You have until December 13th, at 1:04PM, just before the Niagara v. AIC game, to get your picks in.

    Tie breakers are:

    Pick correctly the Atlantic Hockey Regular Season Champ.
    Have the most teams in the correct order of finish.
    Have the most top 6 teams in the correct order of finish.
    I will flip a coin.

    You can change your picks at any time up till the drop of the puck on December 13th, however DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL PICKS. Just put up a new post with your change.

    I look forward to participating with the 3 people that may see this.

    Ugh, math and typing! I see you used acronyms and full names, is that even allowed? Once I can remember my USCHO password, Iíll be the second person to guess the impossible due to homer picks and sheer stupidity on my part.

    I have had to ask the administrator over 5 times to renew my status because of forgetting my password over 18 years.

    In other news, just to compete against myself, I am going to see how far off my original October picks are compared to the "more informed picks" of this weekend.

    Pre-season October Picks:
    1) sacred heart
    2) robert morris
    3) AIC
    4) air force
    5) niagara
    6) bentley
    7) mercyherst
    8) RIT
    9) Holy Cross
    10) Army
    11) Canisius

    For anyone wanted to participate, picks have to be in by December 13th, at 1:04PM

    Re: Atlantic Hockey Pick the Standings Contest 2019-2020

    So, based on the current information, which is not much, here is where it would stand at this point:


    TalonsUpPuckDown - 10 (KRACH - Because it is never wrong)
    Earl_Leatherland - 32 (Wow! Half the season helps! Who would have thought that?)
    Preseason Earl - 108
    Coaches Poll - 132
    Last Year Results - 162

    I couldn't find the preseason media predictions. I found 2018 and 2017, but not this year.

    Re: Atlantic Hockey Pick the Standings Contest 2019-2020

    Average Predictions (not including Last Year Regular Season Placement and Random Number)

    Code:
    Sacred Heart  1.429
    AIC           3.286
    Robert Morris 4
    Army          4.429
    RIT           5.571
    Air Force     5.857
    Niagara       6
    Bentley       6.714
    Holy Cross    8.714
    Mercyhurst    9
    Canisius      11
    Consensus seems to be forming around Sacred Heart and Canisius sticking to where they are.

    The middle of the pack has a lot of fluidity. AIC to Mercyhurst, at least so far, appear they could go anywhere.
