      Or...

      192.042/122.626 = North Dakota was ~157% better than Michigan
      135.339/64.039 = Minnesota was ~211% better than Holy Cross

      Yes...i consider those significant differences
      I assumed a linear relationship within the rankings.

      Point differential between the two...
      192.042-122.626 = 69.416
      135.339-64.039=71.3

      69.416/71.3= 97.36%
      100-97.36 = 2.64% variation between the two games.

      Simple math and that is not significant. It's all how you spin it.

        But the gophers have more frozen four appearances? And less national titles? How does that work? Guess you like to play the spin game too huh?

          Numbers, Schmumbers.

          It's Holy Cross and Michigan.

          Even in a down year, the level of talent that Michigan puts on the ice is going to be far, FAR superior to anything that Holy Cross can muster. And that wasn't a horrible year for them, was it?

          It's an "Any Given Sunday" kinda thing when you talk about a program like Michigan. They're gonna be able to knock some people off based on who's on their roster.

          Holy Cross should never have beaten that Minnesota team. Not 1 out of 10, not 1 out of 50.

          The two losses are not comparable.

            For my rankings, a linear relationship is probably more valid using rank #.

            137-21 = 116
            358-106 = 252

            116/252 = 46.03%
            100-46.03 = 53.97%

            Quite significant

              Bah, quit living so far in the past. You can look back one year and the current year.

              Frozen 4 appearances, 1-0
              McN Cup, 1-0
              Final 5 title, 0-1
              Add that with wins against top 5 teams this year and weeks spent at #1 in the poll. No contest.

                So we agree then...Minnesota is by far the bigger choke artist.

                  *sigh* I find that a little tough to buy, but there's no way I can successfully argue the point since you made the system and have all the details. I can't compete with all that inside information. I'll just say each of them probably sucked just as much for our respective teams when they happened. That makes everything equal.

                    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                        If you want to talk about disappointing losses, I would agree with you. However, concerning which was the bigger upset, Holy Cross-Minnesota was historic (more so for the fact that it signaled a change in the NCAA Tournament that anyone could beat anyone). Michigan-North Dakota just sucked because I was there and had to listen to the **** Michigan pep band for another night.

                          OK, that really doesn't narrow it down much. Now which long time UND poster ARE you really?

                              Personally, an NCAA Tournament game is an NCAA Tournament game. If you lose, you go home. Now, a Regional Semifinal should be the easiest game a team plays (especially a top seed) in the NCAA Tournament, while a National Semifinal will be likely one of the most difficult. Of course, that is just generally speaking.
                              Great, thanks for the info.

                                Hard to say...considering that we have the largest fanbase in North America.
