  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. !
  4. http://www.undsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=13500&ATCLID=211557507 New VB player from Cali.
  5. Those are not NCAA sanctioned events. They are under the jurisdiction of their respective conferences.
  6. I'm guessing it's not even worth the effort. NCAA dislikes Vegas.
  7. Denver and DC are another two where they missed the mark by not selecting them, IMO.
  8. 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).
  9. 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/
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Not sure about atmosphere, but according to the box score, attendance was 19,783, which I'm guessing is one of the highest ever.
  13. I guess I'm on board with Denver. I like the way they play better than Duluth. As much as I like having more titles than them...
  14. Definitely pulling for Harvard after watching Duluth's crap.
  15. Thinking of who I want to win it all - normally I cheer for the team that has never won it, or it's been a long time since they've won it. In that case, Notre Dame (never, lost championship game in '08) and Harvard (once, 1989) would be the most consistent with my rooting interests. Denver or Duluth would keep the championship in our conference, but I don't necessarily need reassurance that the NCHC is the best college hockey conference. Plus, a Denver win would put them tied with us again for number of championships, and a Duluth win doesn't give me warm fuzzies like it did in 2011. So, who is the champion that's most favorable to UND and/or college hockey as a whole?
