  1. IF straight pairings hold up, Union would play WMU. 
    Tied them twice early season at Union.
    Congratulations Dutchmen on a spectacular year so far.
    GO GARNET!!!!!

  2. Way to go Union!!!!! Been watching them since ’94. WALSTIB

    Many thanks to RPI this year. Your team did your self proud at the end of the season.
    Great job by RPITV too, for the ECAC Champoionship coverage!!

    On to the NCAA.where does it end????

  3. Union fans please settle down. You obviously have short memories…remember last year. ECAC equals early exit, year after year. It is an inferior conference, plain and simple.

    • I think they’re over reacting, too.  But the assumption that because they lost in the first round year means they’re going to lose in the first round this year isn’t terribly brilliant analysis.

  4. Union fans please calm down. You obviously have short memories…remember last year’s tourney? ECAC equals early exit. It is obviously an inferior conference, year after year.

  5. and according to the Karach we would make the tourney.  We deserve to be there, Union is a strong team and they are gonna show the nation

  6. FWIW:
    Worcester: BC v MSU; UMD v Maine
    Green Bay:  Mich. v AFA; Ferris v DU
    Bridgeport: Union v WMU; Miami v Lowell
    St. Paul:  UND v Cornell; Minn. v BU

  7. Looks like a fairly easy bracket to draw up this year.  The only question I really see is – how does the committee solve the 2/15 matchup (Michigan – Michigan State)?  A swap with Western doesn’t solve it, so Sparty gets swapped with either Air Force or Cornell.  I think the committee protects the #1 overall seed (BC) and keeps Air Force there….meaning Cornell is the #4 seed in Green Bay (playing Michigan), and Mich State is the #4 seed in St. Paul (playing UND).

    •  There are five CCHA teams in the field, so the Michigan-Michigan State matchup doesn’t actually *have* to be avoided.  Not sure if the committee will still try or not.

  8. Jayson – It shouldn’t be too difficult this year.  A popular debate is trying to put UND in St. Paul but it would better for UND to go to GB for attendance reasons and bracket integrity.  UMN should have the St. Paul close to covered for attendance.  UND fans will travel to GB better than Michigan fans will.  So Michigan to St. Paul, UND to Green Bay.

    • Minnesota will be in St. Paul as they are the host there. I don’t see how NCAA can execute the daisy chain, keep intra conference from playing in the first games, and put the #1 band seeds closest to home – not enough degrees of freedom – will be interesting to see what their priorities are tomorrow.

    • NCAA doesn’t care about fans traveling, they care about keeping costs down. It’s 325 miles fro Grand Forks to St. Paul, 593 to Green Bay – they’re putting NoDak on a bus. Besides that, with Michigan as the #2 overall, they’ll “protect” them from having to possibly play the host Gophers. Michigan will (rightly) be in Green Bay. 

      The real question is, do they flip the Maine/Duluth game from GB to Bridgeport and swap out Ferris/Denver from Bridgeport to GB? I think so. Otherwise, it’s as straightforward as they go, really, and this is perhaps the easiest they’ve had in years.

      • But a #4 overall seed (North Dakota) in the same region as the #8 overall seed (Minnesota)?  Will they really do that?  Has it happened before?

        • Honestly, I don’t know if it’s happened before or not, but it’s irrelevant. They’ve shown in the past they consider all 1s, all 2s, all 3s and all 4s as relatively interchangeable. Their focus in the past few years has been on keeping costs low, and I don’t see that changing now without some previously published directive instructing them to do so (which would have gotten out).

      • Good question, sploosh, but I believe they’ll keep Maine/Duluth in Worcester.  After Minnesota is put in St. Paul as the host school, Duluth is the next lowest #2 seed, so they should go to Worcester.  Granted, Duluth probably brings more fans to Green Bay than Maine brings to Worcester, but Ferris will bring a few hundred fans to Green Bay.  They’ll bring none if they go anywhere else.

      • The flip you suggest would likely have 3 out of 4 teams in GB from the CCHA – not likely. Already has #2 Michigan vs #15 MSU in the first game – that’s not too likely either. I can’t figure it out – whole thing gives me a headache this year – it’s really not easy nor straightforward this year.

        • The flip I suggest would wind up with Ferris playing Denver, Cornell playing Michigan in GB. It’d put Maine and Duluth in Bridgeport along with Union and Western – no three CCHA teams in the same bracket anywhere.

          For the record, here’s what I’ve got:
          WorcesterBC vs. Air ForceMiami vs. LowellGreen BayMich vs. CornellFerris vs. Denver
          BridgeportUnion vs. WesternDuluth vs. MaineSt. PaulNoDak vs. Michigan StateMinnesota vs. BU

  9. So Krach means Northern Michigan would go in instead? Both system, or any rating system for that matter, will have holes in it. 

    • Doesn’t have to.  This is all in good fun.  No matter what we say to each other the teams decide it on the ice.  Just hope the NCAA sticks to the integrity of the bracket.

  10. The big debate I see is whether to send Michigan or North Dakota to St.Paul or Green Bay. I’m gonna say North Dakota to Green Bay and Michigan to St.Paul. It helps both bracket integrity and attendance. North Dakota fans will make Green Bay REA East just like last year, Minnesota fans will fill the X. If you put Minnesota and North Dakota together your gonna have a lot of fans standing outside not able to get tickets, but also would have the 4th #1 seed and 4th #2 seed in the same region. I would rather see North Dakota and Minnesota meet in the frozen 4 than in the regionals too as they just played this week.
