Did BSU's chances of getting into St. Paul evaporate when they didn't win CHA Tourney (heard rumor they could've been #4 if so)? Thanks!
    Your best bet might be for Cornell to rise to #6, which will send #3 Wisconsin to Albany and Denver to finish #2 overall and get St. Paul. Then #7 Bemidji is in their bracket.

    2 - Denver
    7 - Bemidji
    10 - XXXX
    15 - Huntsville/AF

        Basically, what I was saying is that the NCAA is not locked into the 1-16, 2-15, 3-14, 5-13, etc., seedings. There are other factors that come into play as to where teams end up playing.
        2009 NCAA Tournament:

        NE Regional (Manchester, NH) #1/#16, #8/#9
        #1 Boston U.
        #15 Ohio St.
        #8 UND
        #10 UNH

        MW Regional (Grand Rapids, MI) #2/#15, #7/#10
        #2 Notre Dame
        #16 Bemidji St.
        #6 Northeastern
        #11 Cornell

        W Regional (Minneapolis, MN) #3/#14, #6/#11
        #3 Denver
        #13 Miami
        #7 UMD
        #12 Princeton

        E Regional (bridgeport, CT) #4/#13, #5/#12
        #4 Michigan
        #14 Air Force
        #5 Yale
        #9 Vermont

          Seems like there are some allowances to try keeping regionals as geographically interesting as possible & not strictly sticking to seeding guidelines.

            That was screwed up because both UNH and Yale were hosting, and the committee had to avoid conference pairs (Notre Dame/Ohio State, Miami/Michigan).

              This has probably been mentioned, but is there a scenario in which UMD gets in?

                  Edit: The key game is this afternoon's BC/UVM tilt. A BC win seems to put Vermont behind UMD...then it's just a matter of the autobids...and the NMU/Ferris loser must also lose the third place game.

                    Actually the key game is the SH - RIT game. If UVM loses and RIT wins UMD is out and still behind UVM.

                      What is the second tie breaker if two teams are tied have the same RPI.

                      I managed to get UND, St. Cloud and BC all tied at 4th. However, UND and St. Cloud would have the same RPI at .5562. Any idea on what the next tie-breaker is? Would it be head-to-head, which UND wins in my scenario?

                          RPI goes beyond four decimal places you know...
                          Current NCAA D-I rinks I've been to:

                              RIT advances.
                              Cornell eliminates Brown. They're in.
                              The winner of the NMU/Ferris game is in.

                                Ferris needs the autobids to be Cornell, Miami and BC...
