    The Committee felt that SFIS and FS23 would bring in plenty from the biggest fanbase in college hockey. Coupled with bracket integrity, and it was just too much for the committee to go elsewhere.

    Also, STARTING THIS WEEK, PREDICTION TOURNAMENT!! The top 16 posters will square off head to head (this will be in addition to the overall points title). The total points winner from each matchup will advance to the Elite 8 next weekend, where the Frozen 4 will compete during the Frozen Four. Here are the matchups this weekend (don't worry, just predict like you normally would, and I'll figure out the rest...)

    Laker Dude's Regional
    #1 Laker Dude vs. #16 vizoroo
    #8 all bear vs. #9 Irish08

    1988's Regional
    #2 1988 vs. #15 HoosierPioneer
    #7 Aerman vs. #10 gochiefs

    SFIS's Regional
    #3 SiouxfaninSeattle vs. #14 drshoen
    #6 FS23 vs. #11 Shirtless Bob

    Sweeney's Regional
    #4 SweeneyHawksHockey vs. #13 97osu
    #5 FiveHole12 vs. #12 aygwm2

    TIEBREAKERS:
    1. Total Points scored in the Regional
    2. Correct W-L-T eligible game % from the current week
    3. Overall correct pick % from the season
    4. Coin Flip

    RULES:
    1. If I notice any sort of "match fixing" (i.e. higher seeded poster purposefully predicts exactly as their opponent to ensure victory), I reserve the right to award the victory to whoever I see fit
    2. Any change of predictions must be noted by posting in this thread (just as the normal rules require)

    Remember, the overall points title is still like the National Championship and what we should all strive for, but I thought this would be a fun addition for tournament time. Essentially, you should still just worry about predicting like you normally would, and everything else will fall into place.[/QUOTE]

    Week 23 Update...

    Overall, we went a combined 55.56% on our picks this last week...not bad considering the disaster that was last year. Unfortunately that means that our overall pick % remained pretty stagnant, and it will be probably impossible (minus some perfect predictions and the like) to reach 60%. The big winner this week was SiouxfaninSeattle, who put up 85 points, thanks in large part to a solid record (16-10-0, tied for second best), and scoring 21 points on the OT minutes bonus. drshoen had the top prediction % this week, correctly prediction 17 of the 26 possible outcomes correct. vizoroo also scored an impressive correct bonus prediction, correctly forecasting 357 shots on goal in B1G play this weekend. Anyway...

    Week 23 Standings:
    1. SiouxfaninSeattle - 85 points (16-10-0)
    2. gochiefs - 82 points (14-12-0)
    3. vizoroo - 79 points (16-10-0)
    4. 1988 - 70 points (16-10-0)
    t5. drshoen - 68 points (17-9-0)
    t5. SweeneyHawksHockey - 68 points (14-12-0)
    7. Aerman - 67 points (16-10-0)
    8. FiveHole12 - 64 points (16-10-0)
    9. darker98 - 63 points (14-12-0)
    t10. LakerDude - 60 points (15-11-0)
    t10. Irish08 - 60 points (15-11-0)
    t10. ShirtlessBob - 60 points (15-11-0)
    t10. 97osu - 60 points (14-12-0)
    14. HoosierPioneer - 57 points (12-14-0)
    t15. all bear - 56 points (14-12-0)
    t15. FS23 - 56 points (14-12-0)
    17. BCeagle - 46 points (11-15-0)
    18. aygwm2 - 44 points (11-15-0)

    OVERALL STANDINGS:
    1. Laker Dude - 623 Points (146-95-25)
    2. 1988 - 621 Points (147-94-25)
    3. SiouxfaninSeattle - 608 Points (147-94-25)
    4. SweeneyHawksHockey - 603 Points (146-95-25)
    5. FiveHole12 - 582 Points (153-88-25)
    6. FS23 - 577 Points (137-104-25)
    7. Aerman - 576 Points (142-91-23)
    8. all bear - 575 Points (144-97-25)
    9. Irish08 - 567 Points (142-99-25)
    10. gochiefs - 564 Points (130-101-25)
    11. ShirtlessBob - 546 Points (141-100-25)
    12. aygwum2 - 541 Points (122-119-25)
    13. 97osu - 524 Points (130-111-25)
    14. drshoen - 520 Points (135-98-23)
    15. HoosierPioneer - 517 Points (116-105-24)
    16. vizoroo - 491 Points (127-97-22)
    17. darker98 - 445 Points (116-82-17)
    18. BCeagle - 398 Points (94-73-17)

    Obviously, things tightened up at the top this week. When you consider that SFIS gained 25 points on first place, that should indicate that anything is possible during the playoffs. With another 150 points on the line in Week 24, we could very well see some more jumbling of the standings.

    Also, STARTING THIS WEEK, PREDICTION TOURNAMENT!! The top 16 posters will square off head to head (this will be in addition to the overall points title). The total points winner from each matchup will advance to the Elite 8 next weekend, where the Frozen 4 will compete during the Frozen Four.

    #6 FS23 vs. #11 Shirtless Bob

    Sweeney's Regional
    #4 SweeneyHawksHockey vs. #13 97osu
    #5 FiveHole12 vs. #12 aygwm2

    TIEBREAKERS:
    1. Total Points scored in the Regional
    2. Correct W-L-T eligible game % from the current week
    3. Overall correct pick % from the season
    4. Coin Flip

    RULES:

    Should the Big Ten semifinals be included?

    If so, please add Minnesota and Wisconsin to my picks in the previous post
    No B1G semis or NCHC 3rd place game.

    150 points up for grabs this weekend! Good luck!

    WEEKLY RULES:
    1) All picks must be in by the drop of the puck of the FIRST game in the bunch. This week, that is THURSDAY at 3:00pm Eastern!
    2) No late picks will be allowed. NO EXCEPTIONS. This means that if you post your picks on that THURSDAY at 3:01pm Eastern, you will not receive credit for your picks.
    3) Do NOT pick a tie. If you do, you will lose 4 points.
    4) All correct picks will earn 4 points (unless stated otherwise). If a game ends in a tie (regardless of shootout), you will receive 2 points, unless you picked a tie, in which case you will LOSE 4 points. DO NOT PICK A TIE.
    5) If you see a mistake within these rules based on the games selected, please note it as soon as possible. If not pointed out by Tuesday, March 18th at 8:00pm (Eastern), the mistake will stay, and I will interpret the mistake as soon as possible.
    6) Anyone can play. You do not have to continue to predict after this week. You didn't have to predict last week.
    7) If you update your picks before the deadline, please post in this thread to let me know of the changes.

    Bonus #2 - 125 Minutes of Overtime played

    I won't have the standings from this past week up until tomorrow.
