      I think #1 or #3 is fine. Skimmed through all 6 pages today, paying more attention to some of the games where I knew the teams better. May I suggest highlighting the scoring plays, so those of us skimming through can get a better sense of the score and players on some of the teams.
      I know 2 CC squads square off in the first round. That should be interesting. There are also possibilities where back to back years from the same program square off (example: '68-69 Cornell could play '69-70 Cornell).

      When you say "highlighting the scoring plays", do you mean more description, or like putting the text in bold?

      Also, thanks to everyone for the feedback. It seems like everyone likes how it is done for the most part, so unless there is an outcry for one of the other options, that is probably how it will continue to be done.

        FS23, is your simulation program easy to use? Wondering if there is any way to use it over in the WCHA 3 thread to simulate the current season's "What-if" New WCHA playoffs.

        And I'm thoroughly enjoying your work in preparing this top 100 tourney. What a wonderful event!

          I would vote for option 1. I also would be available to help with the write-ups, but having 2 Sioux fans doing the narrative might make some posters heads asplode!

            Bolding would be great

              Gotcha. I'll do my best to remember to do that going forward.

                Yeah, the "Predictor" was used by CHW to predict games early on in the season, and it could easily be used to predict a "What-If" Tournament (In fact, it was first used last year by CHW for their "What If" Tournament that featured all 58 teams...and it correctly predicted a BC National Championship). FWIW, early in the season, it was only getting games correct around 60% of the time. That being said, when I used it in early February, it was getting games correct around 70-75% of the time. If you'd like, I could run the teams through and send you the box scores. Just let me know what teams are playing what teams, and I'll do my best to get the information back to you ASAP.

                  Well maybe we could start by simulating the rest of the nWCHA regular season :P

                      I thought I would post the order of games for the First Round. I generally will be able to do 1 game each Wednesday, 1 game each Friday, and 1 game on the weekend. However, there may be times (during my spring break for example) where I will be able to do 1 (or more) game each day. There may also be times (during my final period for example) where there will not be a game played for a stretch of time (although I'll still try to do at least 1/week). That being said, here will be the order of the remaining (30) First Round games...

                        So Which MTU team is #86 and which is #89? you have both listed as the 1975-76 team, I assume one is the 1974-75 team.

                            #86 = 1974-1975
                            #99 = 1975-1976

                            Also, what were the odds that 3 of Michigan Tech's teams would meet up with 3 of Wisconsin's teams! Combine that with the order coming out with two of those 3 matchups back to back. I just used a random generator to pick the order of the games. I may have to move one of those Wisconsin-Tech matchups so we don't have back to back games with the same two teams. If I do, I'll update my original post and note it in the thread.

                                For those that plan on following (and feel free to comment while the game is going on), the 1988-1989 Harvard (#35) vs. 2006-2007 Boston College (#94) has a puck drop of 12:05pm Central (1:05pm Eastern) from the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
