While I'm glad the ACHA now does autobids to the Tourney, I still wonder when some of the perceived biases will be worked out.
Take a look at Cornell for instance. While I understand their SoS in extremely weak, they never broke into the top 25 last year with a superb record, and at 4-0 this year, they are still in the bottom of receiving votes category (behind an 0-2 Berks team, and 1-3 Niagara team, and an 0-5 Mercyhurst team).
It seems that the ACHA rewards teams that play a tougher schedule, regardless of how the teams perform. All other unbeaten teams with 4 or more wins are ranked in the top 10. Cornell may not be a top 10 team, but still.
And I'm not speaking only Cornell here... they are just the most blatant right now. Many of the teams with the weaker SoS just don't get any play in the rankings at all.
EDIT: And I know you can see I went to Cornell (many moons ago), but I speak on behalf of many of the ECHL, ECHA, and NECHL teams that get dumped on annually in the polls.
