        Friday Update:

        Shirtless Bob was the big winner last night, going 5-0 with his picks. Nobody else did better than 3-2, with the average being just over 2-3.

        Both bonus questions are now halfway (at least day-wise) complete. There were 26 non-conference goals last night, putting most of our group in position to gain at least some points tonight with 9 games on tap (if the average from last night continues, we'll wind up with 71-72 goals scored). In WCHA play, there were 9 "special teams" goals scored, including 2 extra attacker goals.

        Good luck to everyone tonight, and good luck to Shirtless Bob, as he looks to become only the third "perfect" predictor this season (and the first since Week 2).

          I just thought I'd post a quick update. I'm finishing my finals tomorrow and Tuesday, so I will not have scores tabulated and the next round of games up until Wednesday morning. Of course, those games won't take place until late December, so everyone will have a little over a week to get their picks in.

            *Best Winning Percentage
            ** Best Winning Percentage amongst posters who have picked every game.

            We're essentially halfway through the season. Our average correct pick % is 54.78%. That has improved since Week 8 when we were 52.54%. Generally, that number improves in the second half of the season as we become more familiar with teams and the like. I believe last year as a group we finished right around 60% before tournament time, when we collectively **** the bed.

            Keep in mind as well that points go up in the second half of the season (from 2 points per correct pick to 4 points...bonus generally remains the same), so anyone can still walk away the winner!

            I'll have the Holiday Pick'em posted here shortly, and good luck to everyone in the 2nd half!

                              If you continue at that rate though (and everyone else continues at their current rate) you'll move up the standings quickly thanks to the bump in points for getting games picked correctly in the second half.

                              FWIW, 61 correct predictions is tied for 3rd most currently, and you are one of four "regulars" that are have a 60% or higher correct pick percentage.

                                This cannot and should not be right. That record is simply terrible. I vacate my position in t9 and give it over to someone, anyone with a better record.

                                NMU Hockey Since 1976 ...there at the beginning.

                                Bill Crawford, LSSU radio announcer, on NMU hockey: "This is their MO right to the tee: get out shot, get out played, keep hangin' in there, just rope-a-dope it in your own zone, get it up the ice, bang it in and win the game."
