  1. Sioux Falls Regional -- Yes!

    I'm not "angsty" at all, either about the state of the program or how this season played out. I think the program is in great shape. As I watched the first half of the season unfold, it never really looked to me like this team was going to be a contender for a title, either in league play or on a national level. They could be hard to play against, but I certainly didn't consider them to be an elite college hockey team. But even so, I thoroughly enjoyed the season and another great conference tournament weekend. I just find the comments of a few posters on this board to be a bit
  2. Sioux Falls Regional -- Yes!

    I’ll go wherever I please. I find it amusing that the posters complaining most about missing the tourney are the same ones who 3-4 years ago would post in the “Fire Hak” threads that they’d gladly suffer missing the tourney if it only meant that we’d win a title. Seems to me you got your wish.
  3. Sioux Falls Regional -- Yes!

    I bet SCSU’s Olympic rink vs non-Olympic rink splits might be interesting. A good team in space.
  4. Sioux Falls Regional -- Yes!

    So, it’s “fightingsioux4life, or until they don’t make the tourney?”
  5. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    Didn’t Wodon also report that ASU to the NCHC was signed and sealed, and got all butthurt when western reporters said they weren’t hearing that?

    Wait, Allentown, PA, 81 miles by road from the Atlantic Ocean isn't in the midwest?

    What Wodon is really worried about is his beloved Cornell getting sent to Sioux Falls with us waiting for them.
  8. 2018 NCHC Frozen Faceoff

    I think we should probably also be rooting for Duluth in that game if we lose Friday afternoon. First, there are scenarios out there where Duluth gets bounced from the tournament with two losses, so they will be aware of that. Second, Denver and Montgomery have shown a willingness to basically sandbag the consolation game to rest their top players.

    Yeesh, probably worse than expected. According to Jim, even with one win we only have a 25% chance of getting in. https://collegehockeyranked.com/forecast/pwrtournament/ Edit: I might be misinterpreting it. I wonder if we really have a 39% chance (the 14% if we have zero wins and the 25% if we have one win.) This is why I'm not good at math.
  10. NORTH DAKOTA vs. uno mavs - GAME 2 GAMEDAY

    I was watching that game on NCHC.tv. While I was hoping it would be disallowed, I wasn't surprised that they counted it. If you see the play from above the net, you clearly see Terry kick at the puck. But you also see the CC defender poke at the puck with his stick, and it appears (at least to my eye) from above the net that the defender's stick hit the puck which then was directed into Terry's skate. I bet if you asked the officials that is exactly what they'd tell you they saw. From a replay that was shot from the corner you could also see that Terry's immediate reaction was to look at the referee and point at the CC player whose stick was between his skate and the puck. You could also see that when the official gave the explanation to the CC bench, their reaction wasn't anger, but more like, "ohh."

  12. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    If Mankato loses tonight, then I hope SCSU and DU also lose. A Mankato loss will require a 14 or better spot at a minimum, and maybe a 12-13. In other words, we’ll need to win two next weekend. I’d rather go through CC, UMD and Miami than DU, SCSU and UMD if we need two.
  13. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    I posted that back a page or two. About 7 in the pairwise.
  14. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    Too many teams ahead of us are done, and probably too far ahead to catch with one win. Need Mankato, NE, Providence, Clarkson and Cornell to be good to us.
  15. Far too early, but what the hell...Bracketology

    We really need Mankato and Clarkson to win tomorrow. I don’t see us climbing above 14, even with a win in St Paul. I wouldn’t bet against BC or BU in Hockey east, so we need the WCHA and ECAC to go chalk.
