    All I have to say is make your own rankings and then post your formula when you are done.

      Wow... that's putting a lot of weight on things that have no place on an "all-time" list. Marginalizing earlier results in order to favor a team whose results are more recent... recent, of course, meaning a team whose best years ended FIFTEEN years ago... would have no place here.

      The gap between the two is small... think of a real reason LSSU should beat Tech, and try again.

        LSSU uses two primary colors while Tech uses one.

          While I have to say that I currently consider MTU to be very much in the lower rankings....all-time as a whole they deserve to be up there. Like FS23 said, they'll continue to fall with each bad season.

          And to use an age-old argument, back in the day when only 4 made the tourney, there is assumably higher talent (due to less programs), and therefore equally as tough, if not tougher, to make said tourney. In other words, the more programs there are, the more diluted the talent available for a team.

            Yeah, but Tech has worn one for more seasons.

                            15 years ago is more recent than 30 plus years ago is it not??? I realize the following would not necessarily figure into a mathematical formula so i guess the argument that this thread may not be the ideal place to debate this is valid, but better competition, more dominating teams, better players to come out of said "dynasty"...If you would like to message me I will gladly chat with anyone and everyone who wants to respectfully discuss the merits of LSSU vs. MTU as it relates to their pace in the annals of college hockey

                              Everyone's been respectful here. I'm not messaging you. Go nuts right here. I am actually anxious to hear it and have no preset opinion on your Upper Peninsula measuring contest.

                              However, you're 2 posts in to making a main argument that doesn't work on an "all-time" thread supported by unquantifiable opinion. My hope for you dims.
