I know that. But that's what makes it ridiculous and very unfair. Obviously head-to-head shouldn't be used as the #1 tiebreaker, as evidenced by Wisconsin's seeding over MSU. Like I stated earlier, it's a poor system when one team is two spots ahead of another team that it loses the individual tiebreaker with. It means your seeding is determined by results in games you didn't play in. That shouldn't happen. NHL has head-to-head as #2, behind wins. And that works more fairly.
