    I have a gut feeling the championship is going to be BG at Tech.

    This is true but isn't that the case for most athletic programs, unless you have a D1 football team that makes it's own coin. I know Suzanne did some deep digging to the alumni base.

    Yep, same with UAA vs. UA_ back in 2014.

    I think you meant to say that UAA will win.

    I don't think that Racki was a nerd.

    I updated my projections based on last night's games: http://blog.wchaplayoffs.com/2017/03...ns-2017-03-11/

    I'll do that again on Sunday morning if either Bemidji State or Minnesota State wins tonight and then next week before the one-game final.

    Thank you. Hard fought series that could easily have gone either way. Last night's game was worthy of more than just a blurb at the bottom of the WCHA column today.

    In just two years time, Bemidji becomes the third WCHA regular season (co)champion to not make the NCAA Tourney. Just let that sink in for a second. Two things we can take away from that:
    1) League parity remains as tight as ever
    2) Non-conference play has to improve in 2017-18

    Feel a little bad for the Beavers now sitting at home just polishing the Cup until next season.
    Huskies/Mavs fans already been there, know that feeling.

    One thing that keeps it interesting is that, though there may be some team with a few more losses, there are no gimmes on the schedule
