    How can North Dakota be such a great hockey school for so many years, being in Grand Forks? I mean, nothing against Grand Forks, but it's pretty isolated with a bitter winter climate. And North Dakota is not a very populous state. Where does the money and mystique come from. Take this as a complement, not disparaging the University, city or state. Just wondering how the heck they have the money for staff, recruiting, etc. and how they got the long term attractiveness to good recruits and coaches.
    And, North Dakota sent Grant Ptulney to win a NC for the Gophers in 2002.

    I have always liked this thread. To be honest in my opinion FS23 doesn't give enough points for runner up. It's dang hard to make it to the championship game let a alone win it.

    Nothing says this has to close before another is started...

    As far as volunteers, I'd like to suggest having one person for each conference; that person can probably give a bit more information about "their" teams. If we can find enough people, I think this might work. I'd be willing to help with ECAC schools.

    Now the question becomes what to discuss in the last 50 or so posts?

    Sounds good to me.

    Given that we won't be able to finish unveiling the Top 60 programs by the time this thread closes, perhaps we can get to 1000 by the time I have the numbers all in. That way, it will be a fresh start.

    Arizona State had not added its program when I started this iteration of the thread (The original was only #1-58, as Penn State had not added its program when I first finished the calculations). Rest assured, when this thread reaches its maximum posts, I will start a new thread correctly noting 60 programs. And I know...I'm a slacker. It typically takes me about a week or two to enter in the numbers and do the double-triple check to ensure accuracy. I should have the rankings ready probably a bit after Easter. I will likely be asking for a volunteer or two to help post the rankings similar to how previous rankings have been posted. All that being said, expect Denver to add a huge amount of points...similar to what North Dakota did last season. This year's DU squad was one of the most dominant teams of all-time. No question they are #4. Big question will be how close they got to Minnesota for #3.
