Well, FWIW, the ECAC segment of the ECS this week would put the Engineers in a tie for first with Yale.

Could you explain? I might understand it if I knew what ECS means.

You don't read Bracketology? :(

I certainly did. :) Searching your blog just now, I didn't find ECS used. Jayson didn't use it either, but I suspect you mean WaP.

Here's a little hint: Your personal one is just RPI. ;)

Don't worry, the acronym threw me for a loop as well, at least until realet mentioned his weekly Tuesday article.

OK, I got it. It certainly wasn't obvious because Tom hasn't been using the abbreviation.

Had to make an adjustment to Bracketology after discovering that CHN's PairWise calculations are jacked up. I tend to use their matrix since it simplifies examining COp comparisons by listing common opponents in each comparison. Problem is, they're awarding TUC comparison points for comparisons involving Merrimack and Princeton, neither of which have the 10 required games against TUCs. That's messing up the calculations.

So I redid it. I'm still not jiving with Moy's prediction today, but I've got a bracket I think the committee could at least live with. Now projecting RPI in Bridgeport against WMU with Yale/RIT.

This used to be done at RPI back in the day (well, for me that's the mid-90s). I've attempted to break it out on occasion only to end up being the only guy yelling it.

Consider yourself no longer alone. We in Section 17 relish in needling the sieve all game long.

Clearly it's the calf for Bergin.

Yep. I know someone in the Sports Medicine dept - says it is about a two inch long, deep cut. It's been stitched up.

Apperently Brut was joking with Bergin about it - "I would have kept playing with that, not left the game"

I've been trying to start the same thing in Section 15 with maybe 1 or 2 other people cheering along. Getting the entire half of the stands would be awesome.

There is no longer a 10 game requirement (http://www.uscho.com/2011/01/19/committee-makes-another-change-to-ncaa-tournament-selection-criteria/). See: 2010.

Let me know what you have in mind, I'll see what I can do with getting 33/44 involved.

It's looking to be a good thing to have the various "factions" scattered across HFH.

Ah, so it's CHN that's right and USCHO that's messed up. Gotcha.

Posted a poll for ECAC's top freshman. You can vote more than once if you feel more than one player warrants a vote...every vote counts!

2 inches long is not any sort of problem-on the leg perhaps 10-15 stitches. If it was just superficial he could play bandaged this week. The concern with the calf is the underlying gastrocnemius. If either of the 2 heads are lacerated-it is a much deeper and bigger deal. Here's hoping we are looking at skin deep only. We are sure getting freaky injuries this year. In 47 years I cannot recall this many concussions and lacerations.

Isn't part of the problem with concussions that they are more concerned about them now? Wouldn't some of those that RPI players got might have been ignored in the past?

Agreed. I'm not even sure that doctors of the past knew what a gastrocnemius was whereas now it's common terminology among all of us! ;)

Very true-back in the old days-you got hit in the head-you blacked out-you got dizzy-you sat out a few shifts. You got back on the ice and played. I had 2 major concussions in my life-one from football and one from hockey. The last was 46 years ago-I swear that I am still somewhat symptomatic at times. Doctors are very much more conservative now. The medical legal ramifications have caused some of this. That plus better diagnostic tests like CT Scans and MRIs. I am sure some of f the concussions we saw this year would not have been diagnosed 30 years ago.

It helps that we have a doctor on call.

And some very astute hockey fans.
