    Worst part is, these morons are putting themselves in a six-team conference next year with a bunch of other entitled assclowns. MN isn't even playing UND anymore, just a cupcake non-conference schedule and a ton of games against Ohio State and the brand new Penn State team. Idiots.

    Might not be all that bad.....time will tell. Not playing UND though, that is just not sporting. One of the great rivalries in college hockey.

    They booked yearly alternating home and away series with Notre Dame and Boston College, and all the MN schools - Duluth, Bemidji, Mankato, and St. Cloud. No UND - word is, MN wanted almost all their non-conference schedule to be home games ($$), and ND wisely wouldn't play ball.

    Still it is too bad, the whole area comes alive when they play...sad to see that tradition go away.

    BC will start their drive tomorrow night. Here is hoping they rise to the occasion from the underdog position, something they have not been in a few years. I thought UNH would be a player earlier....but their stretch run has been sketchy...hard to make the FF with slack tides in your game.

    Interesting FF with three first timers....Quinnipiac looks pretty strong for a D3 school gone big-time. Should be a fun weekend starting on the 11th.

    My bracket says Wisconsin, but I've got St. Cloud in this F4.

    I can appreciate Yale though - F you Money grubbing Minnesota / North Dakota for ruining the best conference in hockey

    Yale...aren't they supposed to be eggheads? Will have to call this the parkway bowl.

    Quinnipiac will win. Or however you say it.

    Worst attendance in recent history, or was last year's Tampa experiment this awful?

    My give-a-fuck for college hockey is about busted. All the Gopher talent went pro after laying an egg in the tourney, Big 10 hockey is going to suck, no more UND matchups.

    Looks like the Wild's AHL team will end up in Des Moines. I could get behind that.

    Sure does look like Yale will have their hands full. You never know though in those big games....1980, kids can do the impossible.

    No, Yale should lose, and lose horribly......I am seriously pissed at UML, WTF, it's called shooting the puck. Even with a .950 save percentage going into overtime (UML's goalie was standing on his head that game) if you let the other team shoot 20 times and you don't shoot at all you'll lose.

    UML had 5 minutes of offense at the end of the 2nd and other than that it was the tiniest of spurts.

    Congratulations Yale. Was hoping for Quinnipiac, but from the highlights I saw Yale really took off in the third period.
