      Another summary graph, this time comparing the score distributions over the last 10 years. Hope you all like violin plots.



      This year was arguably one of our best ever, though looking back at previous years with over 100 entries just kind of make me sad. Also, the standings were apparently super predictable in 15-16. I had forgotten.

        I believe this was my historical best performance.

        Thanks for running it! May the predictions be in your favor next year folks.

          That probably reflects the downturn in posting overall on USCHO.

            It's a worst-to-first story as FlagDUDE08 wins this year's ECAC Pick The Standings contest just a season after taking last place (among real people)! His score places him 7th of 17 among the pantheon of our previous winners. He somehow didn't get any teams exactly correct, but he did get 5 teams with one position (and 9 teams within two) of the real standings. His worst miss was Princeton in 4th place (remember this for later).

            As a whole, we did much better than last year, with 7 participants posting scores under 100 (up from one), the Fan Average improving by 58 points, and only one poster (me!) posting a score of 200 or worse (down from 16 last season). Last year's winner, goldenbriggsy, basically matched their performance from last year and took second place. Last year's overall loser "chose not to participate" but as I mentioned above, the worst real poster from last year did well for himself this time around.

            The non-poster picks did decently, as Mr. Last Year, the Media, and the Coaches all placed right in the middle of the standings. The Random Number was toward the bottom of the table, but did beat three posters and had one of its better performances of the last few seasons.

            I take last place, but I'll take consolation in the fact that I had the best ever last overall score, edging out Papa Smurf's 2005-06 season picks. Imagine if I wasn't a reckless homer about RPI!

            The long-distance travel pair had by far the biggest affect on our selections, as they combined to cost us an average of 73 points as we all overestimated Princeton and underestimated Quinnipiac. Conversely, we all did a good job of placing Clarkson, Cornell, Harvard, RPI, SLU, and Yale, which cost us fewer than four points each and were nailed by at least six of us. Looking more closely, SLU was picked in the correct position by 12 of us (over 25%), and Cornell lost us just 1.2 points as only two of us (including the RNG and Mr. Last Year) missed them by more than one spot.

            Thanks to everyone on their participation in this year's contest!

            Two BG shout outs to Lug for constructing this whole fun contest, putting in the time and effort and Flag for bringing home the hardware! As for me, I picked BG to finish 4th, off by one and now off to the playoffs!

                It is great to see this competition still going!

                It is not great to see my only claim to participation is one of the biggest losers.

                        Good grief, one of my alter egos has returned or someone stole his password. I see that I am still mentioned in your sig.

                        When was the last time that you were either here or the Clarkson board?

                          I have not posted for a number of years, but am on USCHO constantly throughout the year.

                          I have been doing the instant replay review for Niagara University for the past 10 years, so keeping up with other goings on via USCHO is incredibly useful.
