problem with your West bracket. You have Cal Poly SLO in and they're not even in the regionals. If you include them then you have to add San Diego State before them. They also beat Colorado State and gain the extra 2 points when coming down for Nationals Bids,

You are completely correct. Even if SDSU doesn't win a single game at Regionals, they will be ahead of SLO.

how did you determine your pools?
You're right I came up with thoes D1 Bids 2 weeks ago in another post and just copied them over, sense SDSU had such a good turn out sense then it simply sliped my mind.
As far as picking my pools I tried to split up all regions (which couldn't be avioded completly) Also I tried to in corporate a Great Team, 2 Good Teams, and 1 Average Team. Of course giving LU and UMSL the top 2 seeds thus making their brackets a bit easier but of course this is just my opinon and is just for fun.
If someone from the NCRHA wants to chime in and breakdown the actuall seeding of the pools I'm sure we'd all love to hear it.

Hey, College Folks?
Please don't argue over grammar. It really hurts the rest of us, as it is a bit like Pamela Anderson arguing with Britney Spears over who is more "real."

Isn't it terrible when your fun and sarcasm can't be noticed?
I've edited my post, but still am working on figuring out Clever Name's identity...
See you at Regionals Clever Name!!

I would think that if the ECRHA had six teams at nationals and there were six pools at nationals you would think that they would have 1 team in 6 pools.
With that logic, I would rework your pools having 1 ECRHA and 1 WCRHL team in the each pool, looking something like this. Lindenwood and UMSL would then be in the middle pools, with Lindenwood getting the 4th best west team because the west is better than the east and UMSL getting the 3rd best west team. Then it is up to ranking the remaining 10 teams and moving them in the pools to avoid having two teams from one region.
ECRHA - 1, WCRHL - 6, 3rd, 6th
ECRHA - 2, WCRHL - 5, 1st, 7th
ECRHA - 3, WCRHL - 4, Lindenwood, 10th
ECRHA - 4, WCRHL - 3, UMSL, 9th
ECRHA - 5, WCRHL - 2, 2nd, 9th
ECRHA - 6, WCRHL - 1 ,4th, 5th
That's how I would do things but in the end it is really up to the NCRHA.
I just wanted to make clear that I never have worked on the pools before or have had anything to do with nationals selection/pool breakdowns.
Yea you're dead on and I attempted to use that logic but ran into a few problems and had to re-do a couple pools, it wasn't something I spent or was planning on spending to much time on it was just for fun.
We'll know alot more after this weekend is over and maybe I'll go back and update it with the East final seedings.
Rankings Per Region
Using my above final rankings and with the help William Bourque's pool breakdown here are my potential pools!
Long Beach State
Pre-Regional Seedings & Final Seedings were taken into account.

Our teams are posted up at SlammHockey (http://www.slammhockey.com). It will be sure to cause a great deal of controversy, just due to the fact that with 24/44 teams making the National Championships we don't feel that if your team didn't crack the .500 mark than you shouldn't get the opportunity to keep playing.
We are looking foward to tomorrow and getting the opportunity to see how the National Championship picture unfolds.

You should use the overall record to see all of the points after every regional adds in cross regional play and regional play
D1 Bids are offical on NCRHA.org
(Identical to the selections I posted the other day)

Good thing SlammHockey doesn't pick D1 nationals bids. Those are terrible.
