THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #9

to Dec 3/17

This week leads to the exam and Christmas breaks. I have reviewed all the standings and scores and found that a lot of games first reported as decided in regulation time actually went into overtime. Those results had only a minor impact on the rankings.

THE TABLE:



* indicates total includes a tie game
Conf. indicates overall conference record
Con-x indicates exhibition record within conference
CIS-x indicates exhibition record within CIS but outside conference
CIS indicates regular season and exhibition record against CIS teams
Other indicates record against non-CIS teams
Total indicates record against all teams




Acadia was teetering and have now tipped over into the B level, whilst Lethbridge's two wins over Calgary and elevation into the playoff picture warrants a boost for them. Nobody else shifted a level.

There are two groups of teams (in blue) which are now teetering between levels. The bottom of the B level (from #13-#16), namely MRU, Laurier, Guelph, and UQTR, could be characterized as C+ level teams. And at the bottom of C+ and top of C (from #22-#25), we have four teams who could interchange in the near future, namely UBC, PEI, Windsor, and Nipissing.

And since many teams shifted about, here is the conference comparative rankings skew:



The OUA West should probably have a better curve. They have 6 of 10 teams at the C level. Windsor's record makes no sense A decent record against the C level would have them well into C+ level, at least. Brock has had a funny schedule, with just one game against a C+ team.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
