Newest biggest series of the year this weekend.  If somehow we can come out with a sweep of Duluth, that would put this team right back in the mix!! 

:D  I like the optimism, but that's a longshot anyway, and now even more with Scheel out.

New Orleans has a better chance of the NFL organizing a “do-over” of the NFC Championship Game than North Dakota has of sweeping UMD.

Not sure if UND has a less than 0% chance of sweeping UND, but I'll have to check into this. Lol.

Any team can win any night..  see Holy Cross vs UM, Air Force vs. St. Cloud, UND vs UMD Saturday night in Duluth earlier this year, etc etc.  To say UND has no chance of winning two games this weekend is just asinine.  Are they the better team? No. Can they pull out a couple of wins? Yes.  Is it likely? Probably not, but that's why they play the games.

Good points, bro.  Any team can sweep any other one on any given weekend.

Just ask Canisius College.

What would it take over the remaining games for UND to get to 13/14 in the pairwise?  Without a sweep of UMD, is a pairwise invitation even mathematically possible at this point?

When did you become the biggest pessimist of all time?  Gotta say, you sound like all the Hakstol haters.

I was under the impression that splits against DU, WMU and UMD, along with sweeps against UNO and CC and a first round NCHC win would get us to right around there. We didn't get quite there, but we were close.

Super quick play with the Pairwise tool, no other results counted, a split with Duluth and two sweeps against CC and UNO has us at 13. Sweeping the next six games, we're 11.

I would guess UND would need some help from other teams.

Being this low in the PWR this late in the season. The concrete is 90% cured.

so still a bit of chance..  thanks guys

Sweep against UMD would be massive for our chances. Would absolutely keep us in the battle for an at-large.

Surprising, given that wins vs CC and UNO aren't much help.

Some of those Hakstol haters who couldn't wait for a change are already screaming for another change (cough, cough, Cratter, cough, cough).  I have quickly grown tired of the Berryisms and Hennessyisms and climbing back into the "I think we can do it" bandwagon only to suffer the latest and greatest season-killing loss.  Old Yeller's got rabies, folks, and the only thing we can do is put him out of his misery.

Yeah, I was a bit surprised, too. Also remember that I did that with no other results taken into account.

Don't conflate my high standards for UND hockey with wanting coaching changes. :D

(Never in all my posts over the years had or have I called for the firing of Berry or Hakstol.)

Search function.

12,000 posts over 15 years. I probably have a post for everything. :)

Hard to remember if I was being sarcastic or serious some of them.

Bring Back Hakstol.

In May 2015. That was before Berry had coached a game for those following along.

Cant quote it directly because the thread was closed.

Pretty weak sauce. All posters know we lost twice to Canisius, we don't need to be trolled every week.

Very small margin with UND sitting at #21 in the pairwise and #16, it's pretty bunch up.
