    Does it count as thread killing if it's only one post?

    It think you haven't been in tune with popular culture in about 30 years if you didn't get that one.

    Tom, you're letting rational thought into the discussion. Tsk tsk.

    An AIC win would actually make Union the first team out. FWIW, Dartmouth would also be in the tournament as of now.

    Your response makes the suggestion an obvious loser but I prefer Spinal Tap to comic book movies.

    Those AIC jerseys are hard to come by.

    RPI, though, is the determination of whether or not we are even considered for PWR points. We do not play AIC this year, so they are not a common opponent. I think we could safely say (safe enough to bet an AIC jersey on) that AIC will not be a TUC. Therefore, RPI, in this case, is the only component.

    There is more to PWR than just RPI, as you know. It is, however, the most important component.

    As it pertains to the Ratings Percentage Index (really, the only thing we need to worry about with our opponents unless they are playing each other), you almost always want to root for ECAC teams in non-conference play no matter who they're playing. There are a few exceptions but AIC definitely isn't close to being one of them.

    A Union victory keeps our RPI the same, all other outcomes would substantially lower our RPI. As for poll ranking, I don't think it would really affect us.

    EDIT: My source is the slack.net site, where you can do what-ifs with the calculation.

    Every game is figured in. It wouldn't surprise me if a Union would not count for Union since it might lower their RPI, but there will be secondary effects that will count. Conceivably an AIC win would cause us to pass Union. That would be good. I would root for Union only because an AIC win would cause more EZAC comments.
