Michigan falls one spot from 7 to 8 after not playing last weekend. Quinnipiac beat a Maine team just on the outside of the Top-20, so they flip spots from 8 to 7.

Minnesota tied Colgate Frday night but Ferris State lost to Colgate Saturday night, so the Gophers stay at #1.

Our next opponent Wisconsin fall one spot after sleepwalking through their series against Alaska-Anchorage, getting a late goal to avoid a home sweep.

Past opponent Nebraska-Omaha was dropped from the poll after a sweep from New Hampshire, who rejoins the poll at #20. Boston College moves into the Top-5 after the Frozen Fenway win against Notre Dame.

No much change here but Michigan moves up a few percentage points from last week.

Boston University is sliding, and it doesn't look like they will be a quality win on our tournament resume.

The RPI rankings are starting to take shape. Minnesota is the only team above .6000, and eventually there won't be any. About half of D-1 hockey remains above above .5000.

In the state of Michigan four teams rank above .5000. Ferris State (.5851), Michigan (.5599), Lake Superior State (.5200) and Western Michigan (.5031). Three teams are below; Northern Michigan (.4880), Michigan Tech (.4863) and Michigan State (.4772)

College Hockey's Pairwise Predictor Up and Running

College Hockey's Pairwise Predictor Up and Running

Submitted by goblue7612 on March 12th, 2012 at 12:28 AM

USCHO's annual pairwise predictor is up and running now that Denver has beat Wisconsin. It can be found at http://www.uscho.com/rankings/pwp/

The concept is that you can choose who wins each game of each conference tourney's final weekend, and it will spit out what the pairwise rankings will be. Michigan needs to be a top 4 in the pairwise to get a #1 overall seed. I have run one scenario, which I envision to be a worst case scenario for Michigan and can get them down to a three way tie for third, and we lose the threeway tiebreak, as we have the lowest RPI of the three. My scenario is as follows, if anyone is able to get us lower that'd be interesting as well. It'd also be interesting to see how likely it is for both Michigan and Minnesota to be #1 seeds, as well as watching the 3 CCHA teams on the bubble.
