  1. Can we get a side-by-side comparison with Elvira Mistress of the Dark?
  2. Go here: https://blog.collegehockeyranked.com/2020/02/04/another-look-at-which-teams-are-likely-to-make-the-2020-ncaa-hockey-tournament/ Scroll down to the heading "How the forecast works", specifically, "Each forecast is based on at least one million monte carlo simulations of the games in the described period." Allow me to translate: Jim's run one million simulated (remaining games) seasons and calculated the PWR after each. He uses that for this.
  3. The Moose are the Jets' franchise? Why Thunder Bay? Why not shop them to Saskatoon? Or Regina?
  4. What folks are missing here: Do want to be in a conference where teams want in , or out? The NCHC is a destination conference. Want in? Make your case, but you'd better bring something to the table.

    1998-99 Season, from the UND Media Guide WCHA PLAYOFFS (at Grand Forks, ND) M12 Mankato State L 2-3 OT M13 Mankato State W 3-2 M14 Mankato State W 10-0
  6. I see Burian as a sleeper at WR. (Call him a poor man's Wanzek.) Lennon is at DE. He's a big body and solid BB player (hands). Why not at TE? Or is that because the kid from Mandan is the future TE?
  7. < and now a playback recording from the 2019 presentation > Yes, yes, thank you all for attending. I'm The Sicatoka and I'll be officiating tonight's award presentation. That said, on to why we are all here. Congratulations to the now back-to-back winners of the RS Pairwise Award, given annually to the team that finishes the regular season atop the college hockey pairwise rankings. Let it be known far and wide this award and $3.50 might get you a ham sandwich if there's a six inch special at Subway. Just like in 2018, can I get a representative of St. Cloud State University to come up and get this prestigious piece of metal, the 2019 RS Pairwise Award! < SCSU officials leap to the stage > < obligatory photos of trophy presentation handshakes > < SCSU receiver holds trophy and associated banner high in clenched fists with proud smile, more cameras flash > SCSU officials will be available for interviews immediately after this session. Thank you all for attending, drive home safely, and good evening. And no, we do not validate parking. Good night.
  8. Yup. There's a historical tab here that allows you to look back.

    I was very crabby when I had to drive for a Game 3.
  10. CHR "wins needed to likely end at PWR" updated for this week (thanks @jimdahl) It's down to two teams for PWR1*, and one of them would have to win out. Seems UND is in the driver's seat. It's down to three teams for PWR2, and one is the near lock for PWR1 and one would have to win out (Cornell). Seems Mankato is the likely PWR2. Cornell seems likely PWR3 as it only needs a win to get there. The competition has to go perfect (or 5 of 6 in UMD's case). PWR4, the last regional 1 seed, is where the the next couple weeks will bring clarity. *Shouldn't there be a "President's Trophy" type award for the team that ends the regular season at PWR1?

    @bale31 I just had to poke you a bit. Those MSU-M teams were a pain in the late 1990s.
  12. Thanks @jimdahl PS - What's with the slide your Caps are on?
  13. Every FCS school with a marquee talent just gulped and clinched up.
  14. More likely to happen: NCHC and (new) CCHA make a trade (BSU/MSU-M for WMU/Miami), or St Thomas as eighth member of CCHA7. If St Thomas to CCHA happens first, I don't see BSU and MSU-M leaving the CCHA. But if "the trade" I speculate happens first, St Thomas is a bit isolated.
  15. I understand what you're saying. But when I see that concave lumbar region taking load and then straightening it makes me cringe. (Don't tell me that's not a lot of lumbar pressure.) However, I can see how that shape of bar would be better than a straight bar as the weight is not in front of you but more aligned with the ball-and-socket joint of the hips. All that said, I'm staying with the machine. It works for me (and my sciatic nerve issues).
  16. Is that what one bulging disk said to another?
  17. < cringing > I know the Lifting Police will jump all over me, but I'd rather see legs done on a machine where the spine is supported and it's just legs.
  18. Q: What's Needed At The Alerus? A: Ws. That solves many issues.
  19. If the students aren't filling them (and they're not), why not and see if there's revenue to be had.
  20. Kierstad (jr); JBD (so, and 1st rd pick).
  21. Do we know yet what will be needed for defensemen next year. In my mind it's anywhere from two to four.
  22. Meet the just announced CCHA. Yes, CCHA, Central Collegiate Hockey Association. So does the NCHC pass the "no good dirty money-grubbing ruining college hockey jerks" baton to the CCHA now or in the fall?
