  1. UND actually had a #52 RPI in 2011 (and NDSU was #42!). UND was ineligible for the NCAA Tournament that year (last year of transition), and NDSU won the Summit League. I wonder if either would/could have been an at-large bid. http://web1.ncaa.org/app_data/weeklyrpi/2011WVBrpi1.html
  2. http://www.undsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=13500&ATCLID=211605695 Opener against the Bison.
  3. I know a kid from Marcell, MN who is only 15, but already 6'6" with a 7' wingspan. He loves BB and can dunk. He's skinny, but who isn't at 15, especially with that awkward body. His mom says he's gotten way more coordinated in the past year. I don't know what he'll turn out to be like as BB player, but is this someone that the coaching staff should be alerted to?
  4. Would be great if something like this could/would work. I've long felt that the #1 seeds should be able to host the regionals, but realize there are only 5 days between finding out if you're a #1 seed and needing to play a game at your arena. That probably works fine for certain arenas, but not so great for others.
  5. Looks like a great facility. Plenty of chances for trips to Sioux Falls for UND fans with the Summit League BB Tourney there, too. I may have to do it.
  6. !
  7. http://www.undsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=13500&ATCLID=211557507 New VB player from Cali.
  8. Those are not NCAA sanctioned events. They are under the jurisdiction of their respective conferences.
  9. I'm guessing it's not even worth the effort. NCAA dislikes Vegas.
  10. Denver and DC are another two where they missed the mark by not selecting them, IMO.
  11. I would agree with that sentiment. Must not want to risk non college hockey markets like San Jose, Nashville, Phoenix, LA, Miami. Really surprised about no St. Louis (UND was bidding to host there) and Tampa (big time success in '12 and '16, IMO).
  12. Maybe this is old news (though I have not seen Brad S. report it), but it appears the next round of frozen four sites have been determined. http://www.freep.com/story/sports/college/2017/04/08/college-hockey-frozen-four-2019-detroit/100210456/
  13. Still concerned about how young our D-men will be. I think tournament history backs up the perception that experienced D-men are really the backbone of championship caliber teams. Not saying we don't have a shot (we always do), but at this point, I don't see the likes of Stecher and LaDue on the roster. Absolutely. It's all about the right combination of things: players, hot goalie, coaching adjustments, and, probably most important, some lucky breaks. One lucky break can keep your season going, and one unlucky one can end it. Like the old saying goes, I'd rather be lucky than good.
  14. Appears to be the largest crowd ever for a hockey venue (Ford Field has an attendance record that will never be broken). http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/frozen_4/2016-17/007-Attendance.pdf
  15. Not sure about atmosphere, but according to the box score, attendance was 19,783, which I'm guessing is one of the highest ever.
