  1. I don’t see a way 7 teams get in. The maximum I see getting in is 6 teams. NMU needs things to bounce just right as in the highest seeds winning most games with Cornell losing both of their games. If that happens I see WMU, NMU, and Cornell tied for 14th with Cornell having the lowest RPI. I don’t see any other way NMU gets in.

    If BGSU somehow wins the CCHA title I see them bouncing NMU and possibly WMU or MSU from the field.

  2. I only see 6. At first I thought 7 could make it if BG wins and WMU wins the consolation game, but then I realized that NMU or MSU would then be kicked out  after all the tiebreakers.

    • I would absolutely puke if 7 CCHA teams got in.  NMU is not good, OU is not good.  This is getting a little ridiculous.

      • NMU is not good!  You’re nuts.  They were good enough to go 5-1 against the WCHA.  Sure they lost to BGSU, but so did Ferris St..  Bye the way, all of the CCHA teams fared well against the WCHA.  Another point: just because FSU and NMU were beaten by BGSU it does not mean either of these teams were somehow over-rated.  Any CCHA team can beat anyone.  I wouldn’t be surprised in the least to see BGSU go to the frozen four.   It just doesn’t seem that long ago when NMU went to Minnesota and took away their invitational
        tournament trophy.
