Straight bracket integrity for this week:

Green Bay:
1. Ferris State
8. Denver
9. Merrimack
16. Atlantic Hockey Champ

Worcester:
2. Boston University
7. Maine
10. Northern Michigan
15. Miami

Bridgeport:
3. Minnesota-Duluth
6. Mass-Lowell
11. Union
14. Ohio State

St. Paul:
4. Michigan
5. Boston College
12. Michigan State
13. Minnesota (host)

I went straight bracket integrity this week which resulted a higher seed UMD being sent out east even with a regional in their own state. Putting them in Green Bay would result in the highest 1 playing the highest 4 (Ferris vs Minnesota in St. Paul) and the lowest 1 playing the lowest 4 (Michigan vs Atlantic Hockey Champ in Bridgeport).

If that bracket matriculated, I know that there is no way it'd end up exactly like that as there are too many games left to be played. I hearby nominate St. Paul as the Region of Death.

Pairwise haven't updated yet. Lake State and Alaska records aren't up to date.

The rankings should be


1 Boston Univ (HE) 31
2 Ferris State (CC) 30
3 Boston Coll (HE) 28
4 Minn-Duluth (WC) 28
5 Michigan (CC) 27
6 Mass-Lowell (HE) 26

11 Union (EC) 21
12 Mich State (CC) 19
13 Minnesota (WC) 19
14 Miami (CC) 19
15 Ohio State (CC) 17

Since Ferris is going to fly anyway

We took a bus to Marquette and upstate New York. A bus to Green Bay is not out of the question. :D

With so many "ties" in pairwise I came up with this to have less travel for the top seeds. Attendance should be very strong with my only concern being Green Bay. Ferris State and Denver will have to carry the bracke because the AHA doesn't travel well and Merrimack fans are too new to success and it will be parents myself and about 20 other people.

The PWR I'm currently looking at doesn't reflect what you've posted. Plus, if it ended like this, I don't think they'd send the #1 overall seed to St. Paul to take on Minnesota.

How are you getting BC as a #1 seed?

I think we should have the best odds to win if we get in both brackets. At least we avoid St Cloud this year ;)

I guess it makes sense it's 2012 when I finally read a post by somebody HAPPY to avoid SCSU in the first round of the NCAA. Jesus ****ing Christ. :eek:

Well, we were the ones to finally give SCSU their first W in the tourny... I'm with NMU423904832048 on this point.

See, this is the problem with doing pairwise at 3 in the morning. :p

But it makes sense because I had the FS/Nt and NM/BG in my script twice somehow.

Once it is fixed straight pairwise works, once we move the Duluth bracket to the east to avoid the matchup with Minnesota.

That St. Paul bracket is epic.

As a Denver fan, that is about a favorable bracket as you can create.

Priceless, I'd swap Union and NMU for attendance reasons in Bridgeport. Union might not bring a ton of fans, but a regional in Bridgeport with the only eastern team being UML...that's scary.
