BC is a easy win in regionals for the sioux :) now frozen 4's on the otherhand :) bad memories :D:)

I think the hatred of Boston, and all northeastern teams is pretty strong in both North Dakota and Miami

05/06

3 seed BC beats 2 seed Miami 5-0 in Massachusetts.

BC beats NoDak 6-5 in the next game, at the Frozen Four

06/07

2 seed BC beats 4 seed Miami 4-0 in the second round, in New Hampshire

BC beats NoDak 6-4, in the next game, at the Frozen Four

07/08

2 seed BC beats 1 seed Miami 4-3 in overtime in the second round, Miami had an early 2 goal lead halfway through the game then BC scores 3 quick goals.

BC beats NoDak 6-1, again in the very next game, at the Frozen Four

08/09

NoDak has a late lead over UNH in New Hampshire, and the inevitable final as you are all aware, and increased alcohol consumption.

Miami dominates the game against BU, and has a late 2 goal lead, followed by the inevitable final as you are all aware, and increased alcohol consumption.

March 28. 1999 is the one I'll always remember. UND, 32-5-2 on the season, faced Boston College in Madison to advance to the Frozen Four. BC upset North Dakota 3-1 in a game that was 2-1 for the entire third period until an empty net goal with 11 seconds left (and it had to be Gionta, didn't it?). The Sioux peppered Clemmensen with 15 shots in the third period alone but couldn't get it done. Ugh.

Give us Denver, Wisconsin, and Miami. I'll take the Sioux against anyone this year. This team isn't as skillful as year's past, but there's something about them that seems a little different, and I like it.

Not me. Michigan is overdue for a win against us in the regionals. But then again, I thought we were overdue for a win against Boston College in the Frozen Four and that didn't happen. :lol:

I wouldn't be worried if it was the team that had the last three seasons, maybe. But dont' they basically have to win their conference tourney to probably get in and that isnt' going to happen. I can't see them getting past Miami. Just my humble opinion.

I'm not that worried about Michigan...from the games I've seen, their goaltending is average at best...maybe they are hot right now but I wouldn't be afraid to draw them in the NCAA's...

sioux tied with bc and scsu in pwr. can the sioux pass BC??

http://www.uscho.com/rankings/pwr.php

is duluth safe with a thursday loss? i would assume so barely but just cant tell

If we win 3 and either Wiso lose 2/BC loses to Vmt, we jump to 3.

I would prefer the Wisco lose 2 scenerio, because both BC and UND would be #1 seeds, and we would stay out of Worcester.

if we win 2 this weekend and bc loses to vermont they will fall to 8th and we'll be fourth. in that scenario denver possibly goes to mass or bc goes to fort wayne.

Just asking for a point of clarification. I think we can beat the Dogs. But the Friday night game against Dumbver will be iffy. (We have a chance for sure.) Did you factor in those matchups or just figured 2 out of 3.

The most likely scenario would be IMO win the dogs, lose to Denver, and beat the huskies.

The second most likely scenario is to win dogs, win pios, and lose to BADgers. (I'd favor our chances against the BADgers but I don't think that we'd be favorites after playing three nights in a row after playing three this weekend.)

yes I did we can go as high is third. it looks like the only way we avoid going to mass is if bc loses to vermont and we win at least one game or win the ff and wisc loses two.

Jim's analysis of the F5 PWR implications:

http://blog.siouxsports.com/2010/03/15/one-last-look-at-pwr/

Unlike last season when the forecast surprisingly revealed that UND could land anywhere from #3 to #13, this year the possibilities are exactly what a human using the You Are The Committee tool would deduce: UND can land anywhere from #3 to #6. Winning it all is required to climb to #3 and would ensure a finish no lower than #5, otherwise #4 to #6 is possible.

The only interesting, though not surprising, thing to note is that UND is likely to finish slightly higher if they lose the play-in than if they win the play-in but go on to lose two. Of course, at this point in the season the absolute ranking is a lot less important than the bracket implications, for which you have to check out some other resources

If you're interested in the original, rather than the copy, You Are The Committee.

I always try to send them to you guys. It seems USCHO gets PWR wrong at least a couple times a year and always leaves me scrambling to prove that the error is on their side (because people naturally assume they've got it right and we've got it wrong). Having CHN and slack.net out there helps a lot.

I always believe you first thing because you're known far and wide to be infallible.

So any news on my request to be a moderator.

Notice how I politely didn't mention that CHN had the wrong scores up for most of last night :)None of us are infallible :), but I am pretty sympathetic to John -- USCHO is pretty much just trying to keep alive a tool Whelan wrote, and they do seem to struggle a bit more on the big stuff (e.g. the first season the no negative games rule hit RPI).

I notice you didn't address my last question. That doesn't mean this year's application was lost again?

What is that 5 years running?
