So far it appears again that $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Is mor important than true bracket integrity.......why they even to pretend to have a PWC is beyond me

Other than a bit of shuffling to keep Michigan and Michigan State from playing in the first round and some minor movement to get teams closer to home, I think they followed the true bracket pretty closely. I still think my picks would have been even closer to true bracket integrity while still putting teams in locations where they'll draw a crowd. Then again, I almost always agree with me.

So what time will UND be playing on Saturday? Top seeded, but in Minnesota's back yard.

1:30 ET or 5:00 ET.

Who will get the late game?

EDIT: Got it from above.

God I hope BU bounce the goofs.....for many reasons

One end of the spectrum wants to see the goofs watching more hockey at the excel

The other end is that I don't like the thought of a good quality pissed off UM team.......

Plus if they possibly could get us the mindless masses of gooferville would hang a banner and pop their jerseys about it for years

The gophers at 5

And the championship is at 5:30

Those are EASTERN times.

A run could mean

Western mich. - UMtc. - BC. - Michigan

A daunting task but to think after the Bermidgeeee game??........to even be here with 17......

One helluva job by Hak and the boys....

Anybody on this board that says fire Hak if they don't bring home trophy should be banned from the site, the Ralph, and holding property and voting for life.

All the top seeds have the early game except for Michigan.

I hear ya. I would've rather had Cornell than WMU also. However, we're getting it done at the moment. I was hoping for UND to be in that 5 spot but none of my pairwise predictor outcomes would allow it. That would have moved us out to the east, which is no doubt the easiest bracket.

Don't we want the earlier time? More time to rest for our game against BU.

Only Michigan as a top rated team plays late. Gives the higher ranked team more rest time, evidently. Looks like we will have to open the bar early in AZ.

More rest is ok but I've always put more stock in keeping with a normal gameplay routine

ESPN year in and year out has the worst coverage of the selection. No knowledge. But I am glad Melrose picked BC. West Regional is by far the toughest and should be three great games. GO SIOUX!
