    Might be as fun to watch as a good train-wreck.
    That is so true.

    Also, as you alluded to elsewhere, how it affects basketball and football is going to be drastically different.

    And if you guys want to talk PW, fire-away... (Not seeing that, either.)

    At this point, it's just good to see anyone taking an interest in the USCHO D-3 forum in any regard... Most days, there are <5 new posts, and on many other days there are none at all.

    Why not run with a very intriguing topic, anywhere on here?

    The activity has dwindled so much here in the last 10 years that we could probably get away with a single D3 hockey thread to discuss any subject someone wanted.

    I think it has picked up quite a bit when compared to last season.

    As of Saturday AM, the 4 Pool C slots would belong to Utica, eclair, Babson and Hobart. A 9-3 split with the NEHC grabbing 2 of the 4 at large bids.

    With 8 autobids and 80+ teams, this really needs to be a 16 team tournament. If the WIAC can poach one more team from somewhere we're looking at 9 autobids down the road.

    D3 has a formula. One bid for every 6.5 teams. That’s the only way the tournament gets expanded.

    Re: 2019-20 pwr

    I was really struggling this week trying to piece together a bracket that made sense given the current conference leaders and the PWR. It's a 9-3 split, but really it's more like a 10-2 split since Adrian is within 500 miles of THREE eastern region schools. What was really giving me problems was putting Adrian/Hobart/Geneseo in a pod given that's the 3, 4 and 6 teams in the latest PWR and then still figuring out a flight for the quarterfinals, which I can't remember the last time that has happened.

    However, after mulling it over, I realized that Wilkes might be close and sure enough, Wilkes is 495 miles from Adrian. Just inside the 500 mile rule and that really made everything fall into place nicely after that realization I thought.

    Plymouth at Williams vs. Norwich
    Wilkes at Adrian vs. Hobart
    Augsburg at Eau Claire vs. Geneseo
    Endicott at Babson vs. Utica

    Here's what I really like about this field...yes you have a quarterfinal flight with the Augsburg/Eau Claire winner going to Geneseo, BUT...there is a chance that you won't have to fly anyone for the final four if Augsburg/Eau Claire winner loses to Geneseo.

    The other plus to this (I know it has ZERO factor in the process, unlike at D1), but the potential attendance for a final four featuring the likes of Norwich, Hobart or Adrian, Geneseo and Utica is about as perfect storm as it could get for a Buffalo-hosted final four. I would think tickets would be a very hot item with that group and would probably come close to or easily fill the place.

    The NCAA one is certainly the official one but I think they are exact replicas in a quick scan and last year was too.

    The only time that you'll end up seeing a difference is on the rare occasion that USCHO has a game as neutral instead of home/visitor or vice versa. And that discrepancy usually is spotted and corrected.

    The HarborCenter is small. Technically too small for a neutral site. If anything, you may not want four close teams... :-)

    I agree. It only has a capacity of 1800. Why would the NCAA hold it there?
