    There's your problem right there.

      Is Colgate top 29 or bottom half? I bet their run in 1989-1990 is what's currently keeping them afloat without being mentioned.

        I think the main reason they haven't been seen yet is that this season doesn't count.

          The Seawolves land at #41. Despite struggling in the WCHA for much of the last two decades, Anchorage had a strong run in the early 90's that lead to 3 straight NCAA Tournaments. It was in 1991 that they had their greatest run to date, upsetting Boston College in the First Round before losing to eventual National Champion Northern Michigan in the Quarterfinals. UAA has won more games against NCAA Title teams (118) than any other school listed so far. Since joining the WCHA though the Seawolves have yet to post a winning season. If they can get things turned around, they will have chances to move up. For now, UAA sits at #41.

            Are you saying that a win over Michigan Tech or Bowling Green is worth more than a win over New Hampshire, or is this just a fun fact you're throwing out?

              My understanding is that he's saying a win over Bowling Green in the same year that they won the national title is worth more.

              But I could be implying more merit than is warranted.

                It's part of the formula, so yes. If/when New Hampshire actually wins a National Championship, then a win against UNH will equal a win against Michigan Tech/Bowling Green.

                    So if Merrimack ever wins a title Maine is going to skyrocket up the standings.

                    I forsee a huge gap between Eastern and Western schools considering a victory against a bottom feeder like Tech is meaningful because they won a championship when I was a baby.

                    Edit: And before this devolves into a flamefest, I'm just giving one take on the situation, not saying the whole formula or the rankings are garbage; and there will be plenty of time for this to devolve into an East vs. West thread later. Opinions are like *******s - everyone has one. My only problem with this list is that he's doing it in February, not May

                          FWIW, Tech wasn't always a bottom feeder. North Dakota sucked for a decade...but I don't think anyone here would say a victory against North Dakota should be less than a victory over New Hampshire. Michigan went 27 years and only made the tournament once, and was at the point where they were thinking about disbanding the program.

                          No team is going to "skyrocket" up the rankings if Merrimack wins it all, nor New Hampshire for that matter (other than Merrimack/New Hampshire).

                            Holy Cross winds up at #40. The Crusaders made two tournaments in three years, and put up one of the biggest upsets in NCAA History in 2006 on their way to the Quarterfinals. Unfortunately for Holy Cross, since the highs of 2006, they have yet to post a winning season. If Holy Cross doesn't find its winning ways, look for the Crusaders to drop in the rankings.

                              Princeton comes in at #39. The Tigers have a long history, but have only made the NCAA Tournament 3 times. Unfortunately for Princeton, they have yet to win an NCAA Tournament game, going 0-3 in their three appearances. The Tigers have been trending upwards though over the last few years, and if they can add more NCAA appearances and some wins, they could move up in the rankings.

                                Western Michigan comes in at #38. The Broncos used an 11 year span to make 3 trips to the NCAA Tournament from 1986 to 1996. Unfortunately, they haven't been back since. That could very well change for the Broncos this year, as they are challenging for a bid to the tournament. While Western Michigan has 3 trips to the NCAAs in their resume, they do not have an NCAA Tournament win. The Broncos currently have the title of most NCAA games without a win, thanks to St. Cloud's victory over Northern Michigan in the NCAA Tournament. In the NCAA Tournament, the Broncos are 0-4. That could very well change this year however, but for now the Broncos sit at #38.
