    Pairwise 2018-19

    A couple additional thoughts on UND... UND's PWR position has a couple interesting deviations from following RPI--because we're already winning the comparison against Union, we can't climb a spot by flipping that (UND is below Union in the rankings because we lose the comparison to Canisius, which we can't reverse). So, the three comparisons actually in play are Bowling Green, Notre Dame, and Denver (which UND would flip by winning 2, but not if it takes 3 games!) The path to #15 this weekend is pretty much what everyone else said, I just thought the "why" might interest some.

    Exactly right. Most important of those two is the teams we're fighting for bubble spots. UND really needs some of #9-#19 to get out of its way (in that group, only Western can't be flipped on RPI), so cheer against them. UND PWR details

    Western Michigan PWR trend - Were 9th going into CC, but you can't lose 3 of 4 when you're 9th and expect to stay there.

    Yeah, the thing about UND's position in PWR is that they lose all but 1 of the 12 comparisons above them on the sole basis of RPI, with only ~.02 separating them from #8 (UND RPI details). So, their position is very volatile with different game outcomes. It's still possible to climb toward the bubble (e.g. #15-16) with a pair of wins this weekend, but it will also take some luck on other outcomes.

    Got it. Two things made this year challenging for the score scrapers that have worked well for the last 5 years or so--1) UND's quasi-Big Sky status resulted in the Big Sky schedule only containing games vs. Big Sky opponents, forcing me to scramble for other data sources; 2) Big Sky changed their web site to reformat the way they present result. Both issues were affecting the standings. I previously checked to make sure both teams were conference members before allowing a game to count toward conference stats, which doesn't work with games vs. UND this year; and the revised data format resulted in me not properly capturing Big Sky's indicator of which games count as conference games. I think it's all fixed now, but continue to let me know of problems. Thanks!

    Yeah, the spam seemed to be in Chinese or some such other language. It should all be removed from the forum at this point. I notice that the removed spam posts do still show up on the feed of the front page of the site, I'll see if I can do something about that. UPDATE - Ok, I think all traces of the spam are gone. Let me know if otherwise.

    FYI - in response to the recent uptick in spam, I've changed it so new accounts have to be manually approved. For prospective new members, sorry, this will create a delay between when you register and when you can begin posting. I hope to switch it back to an automated registration system once the spam problem dies down.

    With one game remaining, it looks like andTheHomeofTheSioux!!! wins if Notre Dame does (though jimdahl ties for second!), or 01grad wins if Duluth does. http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketleaders.php

    Definitely some Western bias in the picks... a lot of love for Denver, a 2-seed, and very little for Cornell.

    I dunno, Schloss has a forum account, no one's stopping him from submitting! (Ok, I guess I am, it's too late now)
