    Yeah, this is on me. I started a new job here a couple weeks ago, and I have been absolutely swamped trying to get my feet underneath me. I'm hoping to post a batch of teams (perhaps all?) this weekend. The only write-up I'm waiting on is Michigan Tech's, so I should have everything set to go.

    The real question: Can Denver top both BC and BU?
    I suppose some might be interested to see if the gophers oust Michigan and become #2.

    13 teams left, which is really 12, as #2 and #1 are announced together. Plenty of time to wrap up another year of rankings.

    Another flip in the standings, but just barely, by 1.3 points; squeak!

    Previous flips:
    Penn State over Huntsville, Rob Mo, Army, Canisius, and UConn, from 56 to 51, by pts
    Air Force over Niagara and Princeton, from 44 to 42, by ~1.4 pts
    W Mich over Minn State, from 41 to 40, by <0.2 pts
    UML over Brown, from 34 to 33, by ~1.3 pts
    NU over St. Cloud, from 32 to 31, by ~0.8 pts
    Notre Dame over Quinnipiac, from 27 to 26, by <0.6 pts
    I predict MN st and SCSU will flip back this year.

    #15 – Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs
    Points: 130.5415 Points
    Points Earned in 2016-2017: 13.8243 (Rank: 2)
    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 19.9991 (Rank: 11)
    Last Season Ranking: #16

    The Bulldogs had a great season, winning the NCHC Frozen Faceoff and getting to the NCAA championship game before falling to Denver in a nail biter. UMD finished with the program's 2nd best winning percentage, a record of 28-7-7, and were ranked the #1 team in the USCHO poll for 14 weeks. Early departures, including freshman Hunter Miska (.910 SV, 2.20 GAA), and graduation of seven seniors will make it difficult for Minnesota Duluth to repeat their 2016-2017 success. – Siouxfaninseattle

    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 25.3888 (Rank: 10)
    Last Season Ranking: #14

    The Crimson won a share of the ECAC regular season title (sharing it with Union) and won their second ECAC tournament in three years. Harvard made the NCAA tournament for the third year in a row, and won the NCAA East Regional before falling to Minnesota-Duluth in the national semifinal. Their .806 winning percentage was the highest for the program since the 1988-89 squad.

    The top 3 (and 4 of the top 6) scorers all graduated in 2016-17, so Harvard will need to regenerate offense. However, junior goaltender Merrick Madsen returns for the Crimson, who will be looking to stay on top of the league and continue their NCAA success in 2017-18 to hopefully move up these rankings. – drshoen
    Harvard also won the beanpot for the first time since '93, so there's that.

    earlier, you offered also to provide a ranking where you take FS23 point total and divide by total number of games over which rankings stretch (you said you couldn't do it per season because your data wasn't organized that way).

    It will be really interesting (if you are able to follow through) to see how that changes things, as the top gross point totals also seem to be associated with programs that have been long-established, with successful results in several decades as well.

    No need to spread that "reveal" over time, from my perspective at least.

    Thanks again.
    Its interesting, but I think if you were to plot number of points accumulated vs ranking you will find 3 or 4 different groups of teams. The analysis of those different groups would be especially interesting.
