  1. “BU is back”…you guys are too funny. BU played noone the first 6 weeks of the season…move aside ugly stepbrother, the real deal flexed its muscles this weekend, which is a prelude to what’s coming in March…On to 3 out of 4, says me out loud, and says Jerry behind closed doors!

    • Try again Eagle Watch. Try watching more hockey instead, unless you really think #16 Wisconsin and #11 Notre Dame are “noone” (one set of “noones” who also hung a loss on your vaunted team). Maybe if your team continues to “flex its muscles”, you might be able to steal a game from Merrimack this year.

  3. BC received the easiest possible road to the frozen four. I’d rank them: Northeast > Midwest > West > East. I ranked west below Midwest due to MN being the clear cut favorite with Yale being weak and Niagara being AHA.

    • Don’t think there is a clearcut favorite in West. You have no idea the rage between UND-Minnesota. Rates up there with us and CC.

    • You have the number one rated team, plus BC, and a frozen four team from last year in Union but the East is weak? Does the East region have any rivalries, no but to say it is weak is rediculous!,

  4. How does Yale make in over WMU? Less wins, more losses, lower winning percentage against TUC, and they compete in weaker conference. I know WMU played very poor late, but still a quality season. Oh well, maybe next year…

    • an even bigger joke is Niagara, beaten 10-2 early in the season by a nobody, swept by lowly Michigan State and no quality wins that I saw I’d take WMU over that crap any day, might as well given ND a bye

  5. Funny how conference matchups are avoided in the first round but almost each bracket contains a possible one in the second round. NCAA loves grouping Mn and No Dak in the same region. Why not just give each a bye to the region final and avoid the pretense of impartiality.

  6. I live 10 min from providence and there is no way i would pay to go to those games. Going to the Northeast regional instead. Great job for predicting the brackets. was hoping you were wrong with north dakota though
