  1. UML needs wake up, and do it right now. It’s officially crunch
    time and by my estimate, if they don’t go 4-1 (or possibly 3-2 if the 3 wins come vs BC and UVM) down the stretch run, they don’t make the national tournament. If the season ended today, they’re out. Their #15 PWR would get bumped by non PWR ranked conference champions (PSU, and RMU).

  2. Here’s take on the current PWR… Now that Vermont has dropped in the past two weeks, Miami and Minnesota are the most suspect to me. Miami, like Vermont did last season, is benefiting from the strongest conference ranking. Neither has beaten many teams .500 or better. Miami may be good enough to make the final 15, but they are hardly the #6-8 best team in the country.

  3. UND should be #1 this is power ranking. The mavs haven’t play that hard of a schedule. Heck CC could play their schedule and be in the same position as the mavs. UND is the best team in the country hands down, Hopefully they don’t poo the bed in the playoffs though it’s been known to happen.

    • Neither UND nor Minn. St. has great SOS. Minn. St is 16, UND is 9. Reason Minn. St. is ranked #1 in Pairwise is their RPI rating. UMD and DU are 1/2 in Strength of Schedule.
