    You might have also mentioned that Western Michigan has 4 games in hand on every team ahead of them in the league standing. If they split those games, as they have done with all their league games so far, they will be right in the middle of the 4-5-6-7 group.

    Actually, Bryce, ND beat and tied (and won the SO against) WMU, taking 5 of the 6 possible league points. That’s not a split.

    • Bruce

      What I meant is that they have split, on average, all their league games so far. Out of six league games, they have two wins, a home series against Michigan State, two losses, at Notre Dame and at Ferris State, and two ties, a shootout loss at Notre Dame and a shootout win at Ferris State. That totals two wins, two losses, and two ties, one with a shootout win and one with a shootout loss, for 9 points out of a possible 18. That is what I call splitting their first 6 games.

    okay… as the performance this week shows, maybe we are a bit overrated….
