The Colorado College Tigers, 18-19-5 last season, were picked to place seventh in the first season of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference according to a preseason poll of league media.

Nebraska-Omaha was slotted for last place in the eight-team conference with 41 points, just behind Colorado College (42).

Miami was picked to win the regular-season title with 115 points and seven first-place votes out of a possible 16 (two per team). North Dakota was picked as the runner-up with 109 points and five first-place votes. St. Cloud State was third (99, four) followed by Denver (66), Western Michigan (61) and Minnesota-Duluth (43).

If anyone cares, I was one of the 16 media voters. Here is how I predicted things would shake out over a full season. Picking spots 4-8 was difficult:

1. St. Cloud State; 2. Miami; 3. North Dakota; 4. Colorado College; 5. Nebraska Omaha; 6. Denver;  7. Western Michigan;  8. Minnesota Duluth.
