If you want more flexibility and less user-friendliness, you can use the self-service hypothetical interface to add, remove, or change any results for the entire season.

At this time of year, people often ask themselves: "Will my team make the NCAAs even if they bomb out in the conference tournament?" or "What do we have to do to get a bye in the first round?" One can already look at the current PairWise Rankings on USCHO, or use our "You Are the Committee" page to figure out how the tournament seedings would probably shake out using the current pairwise comparisons. But of course, when the dust has settled, the final pairwise comparisons will contain results that haven't occurred yet. Now, by using the form below, you can consider a possible set of outcomes for the conference tournaments, and see what the selection criteria would look like if they occurred. The form will send you off to the "You Are the Committee" script, but your hypothetical results will be added to the real ones before beginning.

The remaining games in the five conference tournaments are listed below. For each game, check the button next to the hypothetical winning team. You can leave the winner unspecified, but keep in mind that

  1. The season won't actually end that way;

  2. If you try to specify the results of a later game, the script might be unable to identify the winner and loser of that game.

If you have a browser that supports tables, you might like to try our tournament bracket interface instead.

In addition to following through the selection procedure using the NCAA's selection criteria, you also have the option of instead using a proposed modification to those criteria using the Bradley-Terry ratings (also used to create the KRACH ratings). The purpose of this modification is to produce pairwise comparisons which can be applied to all teams resorting to semi-subjective judgements about the competitiveness of new conferences.
