Recommended Posts

Coleman gets a hat trick, tossed from championship game, and named MVP. Now what would one call that hat trick of achievements?

Here's my west regional prediction:

(1) UND vs. (4) Yale

(2) UMN vs. (3) UNO

Did you do a lot of switching of teams for attendance purposes? I've got these teams in the Fargo regional:

Here's my west regional prediction:

(1) UND vs. (4) Providence

(2) Michigan Tech vs. (3) St. Cloud

 

I flopped St. Cloud with Harvard in the 3 seeds. Providence could flop with Quinnipiac but they're both so close in distance to each other I didn't see a point really.

 

Edit: Nevermind....I think my pairwise results are off.

 

Double edit....I don't know, the pairwise sites aren't agreeing. whatevs.

Not sure if my PWR calculations are correct or not but I have North Dakota out of the tournament at #18 just behind Lakeville North and Minot.

You miscalculated Lakeville North's RPI again I bet.

You banked on Minnesota and/or BC missing the tournament. I don't know what to believe from you. :D:p

I think Michigan Tech will be the 2 seed and Minnesota will be the 3 seed in Fargo going off of USCHO website

Yea, my deep faith in Michigan turned out to be some maize and blue Jim Jones Kool-Aid.

Yeah, I wonder how much longer Red sticks around? It was really feast or famine for Michigan. Depended way too heavily on its offense to pot more goals than the opponent to win games.

I wonder if Dylan Larkin is going to be leaving shortly now with their season over.

Curious how people get SCSU in Fargo, when it's so easy to go chalk 7-10 and put MN there.

It really is quite amazing when you look at some of the talented players that could/will be sitting at home watching the NCAA tournament, isn't it?

I sure hope it doesn't go down like this. That would mean St. Cloud would have to face another NCHC team in the 1st round. And while the rules may allow this, it would be a shame as they could easily switch Denver for Tech or St. Cloud, Harvard, & Minnesota and avoid it.

But this is the NCAA after all....

If they choose to avoid first round intra-conference matchups, St. Cloud can only play Mich. Tech in the first round.

Avoid a 1st round matchup between 2 NCHC teams which doesn't have to be done but is likely.

I wouldn't be surprised if they put Omaha vs St Cloud in Fargo and ship Minneaota vs Tech to Ann Arbor. I know the inter inference matchup is something they avoid in round one but the ability to have three teams bus to one site is attractive.

The 1 seeds are pretty simple: MSUM to South Bend, UND to Fargo, BU to Providence, Miami to Manchester.

In the 4 seeds I see four eastern schools. About the only concern is do they keep Providence (not a host) in Providence, otherwise I expect "straight chalk" (1 v 16, 2 v 15, etc).

In the 3 seeds I see two east, two west. My guess is they'll try to keep east east and west west for attendance and travel. Their problem is South Bend attendance with MSU-Mankato as the 1 there. They need a "name" -- Minnesota -- on the marquee there. That would put SCSU in Fargo.

The 2 seeds I expect "chalk" also: 8 UNO to MSUM (which works for travel also); 7 MTU to Fargo; 6 Duluth to BU; 5 DU to Miami

The actual PWR on CHN doesn't match the prediction with Minnesota and Miami winning tonight, which happened.

I guess I'll wait until morning to make a prediction. Or I could just wait for the selection show tomorrow. But what fun is that?
