  1. I think there will only be 4 CCHA teams. Ideally it’ll be WMU since they’re still in the conference tourney, but MSU could get in if Miami wins the semifinal. Either way, I’d rather see BC get Air Force than see a good CCHA team travel to face the #1 team basically at home in Mass. Of course none of this will matter when Bowling Green wins the AQ.

  2. All season long most of these teams play two game series, then at national tournament time it’s one and done.  Crazy.  Invite half the teams, play best of 3, put the games in town where attendance favors the better team so they won’t play to an empty arena.  Oh and the Frozen Four is in Tampa this year, NCAA officers gotta love that vacation, too bad the fans won’t make it.  As far as Bracketology, interesting science … or lack thereof … earn your berth … then live with it.   GO SIOUX!

  3. Hey Jayson Moy, In your article you state that MN is the highest remaining seed in the WCHA Tourney, isn’t that supposed to be UMD? They are still in the tourney and you have them seeded 3… Was this just a typo or am I missing something?
    Thanks –

      • Ahh that makes sense now. I was just wondering, as the way the article was laid out, they show the NCAA seedings right before the remaining seeds in each tourney so there was no way to tell they were seaking of each individual tourney seedings info. Thanks for the clarification Dan.
        Gooooo Gophers!

  4. SO much disrespect here for Union!  Let’s see, they whipped Michigan, barely lost at Denver and CC (all on the road), beat Merrimack on the road and tied W.Mich twice, and finished first in the league two years running.
    At least Union and the other ECAC teams turn out well-educated, talented gentlemen, whereas the mid-west and western schools churn out toothless, useless MOrons.

  5. I get kick out of this. UML is a higher seed than Maine, yet travels much further, to play Minnesota at its own rink!

  6. Sioux fans…before you talk about trouncing Union, keep in mind there is still a chance of not even making the tournament… SCSU has been playing well lately and might take the final five…

    • I have yet to find a way for UND to be out on the PWR predictor, but needless to say, your right, anything can happen when the playoffs come around.

  7. I found a way to sneak merrimack into the tournament:

    Atlantic Hockey

    Semifinal #2: Miami defeats Western MichiganSemifinal #1: Bowling Green defeats MichiganChampionship game: Miami defeats Bowling GreenConsolation game: Michigan defeats Western Michigan

    Semifinal #2: Harvard defeats CornellSemifinal #1: Union defeats ColgateChampionship game: Union defeats HarvardConsolation game: Colgate defeats Cornell

    Hockey East
    Semifinal #2: Maine defeats Boston UniversitySemifinal #1: Providence defeats Boston CollegeChampionship game: Maine defeats Providence

    Semifinal #2: Minnesota-Duluth defeats DenverSemifinal #1: Minnesota defeats North DakotaChampionship game: Minnesota-Duluth defeats Minnesota
    This is not impossible, but HEA and CCHA results are pretty unlikely.  Also, it does not appear that AHA really affects their rankings (maybe some around them?).  In any case, its nice to see they still have a shot regardless of how slim it is.

  8. We should probably all stop trying to talk ANY sense into the sioux fans.  They’re idiots, write posts in ALL CAPS, struggle with every day grammar and the use of apostrophes, and no doubt have to be growing sick of their own whining.  Let’s just give them a break guys, they have to work so much harder to get through life than the rest of us.
