    I think everybody had Tech steamrolling over UAA this weekend. Boy we were all wrong. I guess the Seawolves aren't as terrible as everyone says.

    Or Tech is not that good. I also noticed that Mankato did great vs Minnesota on friday, ( who plays a similar style to Tech) but things changed on saturday. Seems like a systems sort of thing, or was minnesota just executing better.?

    I spared Tech fans an analysis of how hard it will be to pass Bemidji at this point (note: still really hard). Somehow I contained my frustration with UAH.

    They took Bemidji to OT also. I just hope they don't figure out they do have talent until after we finish our second series up there.

    Game 2 was a good game, until it wasn't. UAH threw in the towel after the ENG making the final score much uglier than it should have been. Guerriero was left hung out to dry.

    Some interesting numbers put together by Brian Schultz and the Beaver Radio Network regarding experience for each team in terms of games played:

    Team Games Played Average Games Per Player
    Michigan Tech 1457 58.5
    Bowling Green 1349 56.3
    Huntsville 1452 56.2
    Bemidji State 1277 55.5
    MSU Mankato 1229 52.4
    Ferris State 1248 50.1
    Northern Michigan 1131 49.2
    Fairbanks 1068 42.9
    Lake State 934 42.4
    Anchorage 1035 40.1

    And now, experience in terms of the D-men and goals given up:

    Team Defense Games Played Average per Defenseman Goals Allowed

    Michigan Tech 620 86.5 2.44 (3rd)
    Huntsville 460 57.8 4.06 (10th)
    Bowling Green 391 55.8 3.14 (5th)

    Part two of my Recruiting Ground series is out today, this time I discuss the BCHL. A league many of us are familiar with since almost every D1 team has a player from the BCHL on their roster:

    I completely agree with this, while they are bad, on any given night, Mantha gives them a great chance to steal some points.

    Week 9 predictions: http://blog.wchaplayoffs.com/2016/11...ons-above-1-3/

    The Alaska schools have a puncher's chance, but that's about it.

    Interesting tidbit out of Bemidji. The game between Princeton and the Beavers has a female referee. I think that is the first female referee for a Beaver men's game!

    I realize that each game impacts future predictions. But I am curious as to how many games have ended with a result that was less than a 50% probability. I'd look but then it would appear I understand your methodology.

    And as an aside, I despise the Seawolves. But according to BG announcers, every time a Falcon hit the the the ice they were brought down without a call. And every time a Seawolve hit the ice they slipped or fell. I admit that the Seawolves suck and can't skate, but that's beside the point, give me a break. BG announcers are a bunch of homers. It gags me me to give the Seawolves a compliment, even back-handed.

    There was a lot of BG players receiving checks to the numbers. It went uncalled all night. If the "obstruction crackdown" hadn't ended, there would have been a lot of 4 on 3 and 3 on 3 play throughout the game.

    It's absolutely frustrating as a fan because it is still enforced at very random times. Can't imagine what it's like to be a player or coach right now.
