    Re: NCHC Pick 'Em 2019-2020

    Yeah Iím not trying to ruin the fun of the thread and I certainly wonít be offended if the bonus questions proceed. But Iím inherently lazy and Iím not interested in spending more time on the picks than it takes me to flip a coin between teams.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

      Nor am I trying to ruin the fun, just expressing my opinion. Kudos to anyone that puts together a thread like this. I know it takes a lot of work, and I will continue throwing those darts!
      Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.

        The week 17 winner with 26 points was...me! Woohoo!! By my count the total number of higher PWR league points picked up were 15 (UD: 0, SCSU: 6, UND: 6, WMU: 3).
        Code:
        Player			Bonus
        TalonsUpPuckDown	5

        John J. MacInnes	2
        Siouxfaninseattle	2
        SJHovey			2
        Code:

        8	John  J. MacInnes (62-50-5-2)	17	198	15	213	.555		119
        I wasn't sure what to do regarding the bonus debate so I left it off for week 18. If that changes, let me know and I'll include for week 19.

            The week 18 co-winners with 16 out of a possible 17 points were BroncoHockeyFan and TalonsUpPuckDown (go MAC!). What looked like an insurmountable Siouxfaninseattle lead a couple of weeks back is now down to 4 points. Which brings me to the most important question of the season: What are we playing for?

            Code:
            Rank	Contestant (W/L/SOW/SOL)	This Wk	Points	Bonus	Total	Points %	Games
            1	Siouxfaninseattle (91-54-3-5)	13	284	13	297	.619		153
            2	TalonsUpPuckDown (90-55-5-3)	16	283	10	293	.617		153
            2	Bronco Hockey Fan (89-56-6-2)	16	281	12	293	.612		153
            4	SJHovey (81-64-6-2)		14	257	 5	262	.560		153
            5	SweeneyHawksHockey (80-65-6-2)	13	254	 7	261	.553		153
            6	S11R9Seat8 (80-62-5-3)		13	253	 4	257	.562		150
            7	gochiefs (78-51-4-4)		13	246	 7 	253	.599		137
            8	John  J. MacInnes (66-51-5-3)	13	211	15	226	.563		125
            Bonus for week 19 is the total number of SOGs in the CC/USAFA outdoor game at Falcon Stadium.

              NACHO Cup - picks only
              Penrose Cup - total points
              Frozen Faceoff Championship - playoff champs


              They seriously need to brand the tourney trophy.

                BONUS QUESTION for next week:

                Total goals allowed by the team(s) that do not win a particular contest. (meaning both teams' GA are counted in games that officially end in a tie)

                  Anybody wanna go double or nuthin (bonus points only) on the BONUS QUESTION for this week:?
                  Weather forecast for the outdoor game is: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a low around 17. Northeast wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
                  20 shots per team may be high.
                  Should be lots of seats open if you want to go:
                  https://www.denverpost.com/2020/02/1...tomer-service/
                  Go Col Force! I won't be too disappointed if Airorado College wins. I just wanna listen to Frankie's post game, and get you all warmed up for Loveland regionals in March, Colorado's snowiest month.

                    ....so sayeth the player with the fewest SOGs picked for the week. Non merci. Though I know some people over on the WCHA Pick íEm who may take your wager.

                      Due to some timely homer picking, SweeneyHawksHockey won week 19 by going 6-for-6 on on the picks and scoring the most bonus points. There were 59 SOGs in the CC/USAFA outdoor game. We should have taken s11r9seat8 up on the double-or-nothing ploy.

                      Code:
                      Player			Bonus
                      SweeneyHawksHockey	7
                      Siouxfaninseattle	5
                      TalonsUpPuckDown	5
                      Bronco Hockey Fan	4
                      SJHovey			4
                      John J. MacInnes	2
                      Siouxfaninseattle leads by 1 in the race for the Penrose Cup and TUPD currently holds the NACHO Cup lead.

                        Yep, you shooda all taken me up on that 2X/0 and wiped out all of my points. It sure looked to me like a slogfest brewing, especially while i was shoveling 11" of fresh (light Utah quality) snow in the morning at the ski area.
                        I will continue to pick wild and crazy-stupid picks here and there in the hopes that fate will give me one small victory up against you smart fokes...

                            Welp... working til 6pm yesterday has sunk my Penrose and NACHO campaigns. Playoff trophy re-branding to "NCHC Frozen Faceoff Championship". Might as well put the conference name in there.


                            BONUS QUESTIONS for the last two weeks of the regular season:

                            Next week:
                            1. Total penalty MINUTES called on the first four alphabetical teams (CC, Denver, Miami, Minnesota-Duluth) This one might need to be a 10-pointer.
                            2. Total PENALTIES called on the last four alphabetical teams (North Dakota, Omaha, St. Cloud, Western)

                            Final week:
                            1. "Senior Night Goals": Total goals scored by seniors (both home and away) in their final regular season contest. (NOTE: This includes any Seniors who play Friday but not on Saturday)
                            2. Total shutout periods by the goaltenders (60-minute regulation only)

                              Good with the bonus questions for week 21. However, I am not a Nacho guy by trade, so to calculate the results for bonus #1 in week 22 would require me to go through all 8 rosters by hand and figure out who the seniors are and cross index that with all 8 box scores. While I love ya BHF, I'm not entirely certain I love ya that much. Plan "B"?

                                The week 20 co-winners were the WCHA duo of John J. MacInnes and TalonsUpPuckDown each with 17 points. There were 16 goals scored by the non-winning teams (including Friday night's UND/SCSU tie). Only two players picked up bonus points: John J. MacInnes (4) and TalonsUpPuckDown (4).

                                There's now a tie atop the leaderboard. Siouxfaninseattle takes the lead in the race for the Nacho Cup.
