    They're poorly paid or not at all, so the chances are that they just didn't spend any time on it. It is disappointing, though. It's a slip from the days when I wrote here.

      I would not have cared about only calling out the 1975 championship, but they listed all of them for DU...granted that might be because each of the 4 writers each wrote up a preview for one team...but yeah, I feel the $ sentiment. As much as I thought it was cool to do some CHN previews, etc, the way they want stuff written isn't my style and its ALOT of work for very little money.

        Well, none of the CHN "experts" picked us to beat DU. That's a start.

          I believe standard practice was to only list the most recent title, but the author for the DU segment didn't follow that so it made Jack look bad on the MTU portion. WCHA Final Five was a typo, it happens to all of us.

            97% of all CHN brackets at one point had DU winning over MTU.

              Makes a bit more sense now, and yes, typos do happen.

                I'm not doing a bracket, nor did I do picks, but holy crap that's tilted. Looking at KRACH, I'd say that it's no higher than 85-15, so a lot of people could be upset with that upset.

                [I did come up with a name for a 60-team rating system. I have to worry about BELOW first, though.]

                    MTU Hockey fan since I was carried to a game in 1986 - for those counting... that's a lot of depressing hockey. Still love it.

                      CHN posted a tweet I believe with their distributions at that moment:

                        Thanks!

                        WOW! I can't believe people are more confident in Western Michigan than North Dakota though.

                          I can because of the easterners...but I'm certainly not more confident in WMU than UND, but we're westerners.

                              • How balanced are the Huskies? Of all the players who have appeared in more than 15 games this season, only Cliff Watson and Thomas Beretta have yet to be named SNB Superior Player of the Game. Reid Sturos and Joel L'Esperance each have 5, and even Mason Blacklock for it once.

                                In all, 18 different players have been named to the spot.
