    At this point we know that winning a title is very important for points.

      Colgate winds up at #27. The (Red) Raiders have made 4 trips to the NCAA tournament, including their memorable run in 1990, advancing all the way to the National Championship.
      Their one brush with greatness, if you will.

        I think count right to very much confirm- there are 17 teams that have won NC's, and only 18 teams left on the list. What will be very telling is the next team-are they the best team never to win, will the never win pass a winner?

        And if I'm reading the results right, the next team should be Clarkson- 20 NCAA's, 2 runner ups. 4 thirds out do UNH's 2.

          Indeed. I would generally put teams like New Hampshire and Clarkson ahead of some teams with a title or two like Bowling Green, Northern Michigan or RPI. This is not a criticism of these rankings, I think fans of any team without a title would trade all of their achievements for one. I remember that CAH's rankings a few years ago had those two schools above some that had won National Titles.

            I think UNH, Clarkson, even tUMD would be higher than those three, but that's just an observation. FS23 has the numbers, I don't.

              I say we should have threads like these all year.

                    VERY, very possible, Tech has more NC's than 7 of the 17. And based on the 3's- I *bet* the scoring will have Tech at 9 and Lake State at 10 at least- what will really be interesting is if Tech is above MSU, since they both have 3, Tech has a better FF record, but State has been to the tournament 17 more times.

                      FS23 has posted that the equation will be posted after #1 has been posted.

                        Northern Michigan comes in at #18. The Wildcats have made the NCAA Tournament 8 times, but none were more memorable, or impressive, as their 1991 run. Northern was dominant that year, and averaged nearly 7 goals/game in the NCAA Tournament. The followed that up with another two NCAA Appearances, but failed to get back to the Frozen Four. Northern Michigan eventually switched back to the CCHA, and has been fairly consistent since then. They've made two more NCAA Appearances, and have had only 1 losing season since their coming back to the CCHA.

My thought process was that since this is for "all-time", programs with more history should get some sort of advantage. What could easily be done though, is you could take the amount of points a team has, and divide by the number of years that they have played D-1 hockey. Then you could rank by who has the highest points/year.
