    Post Frozen Faceoff 2017: DU, UND, UMD and WMU

    Figured I'd make a thread. Why not!?

    It will be DU vs UND and WMU and UMD on Friday. Looking forward to it!

    Do we have game times yet? For Friday and Saturday? And anyone know anything about TV coverage?

    Can almost guarantee you Duluth-Western will be the early game (4:07 CENTRAL) and Denver/North Dakota will be the later game (7:37 CENTRAL).

    Third Place game is at 3:30 CENTRAL and Championship at 7:30 CENTRAL.

    Semi-Finals and finals on CBS Sports Network and third-place game on NCHC.TV.

    UND/DU is indeed the late game

    Would have been VERY surprised to see otherwise.

    Not me. DU makes that decision. I could see them wanting the early game so they could get more rest for their Saturday game.

    Do they really? I thought it was a conference decision.

    You must be talking about me then! 50/50 on whether I'll go or not. Flights to Fargo are outrageous from Denver for the West regional though so that might keep me from going to Minneapolis. If I'm there, come say hi because I'll definitely stand out in my DU gear.

    Nope, the top seed gets to pick the time.

    It's a pretty easy pick to have Denver roll this thing, right? They looked so good when they made the trip to Kalamazoo. The WMU/UMD series could be interesting though. I'll be a homer and say WMU will win a very tight one, but it wouldn't surprise me if Daloot meets DU in the final.

    Given that in the prior three seasons of the NCHC, the regular season champion has never won a game at the Frozen Faceoff, I see no reason to doubt DU's chances.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    The Frozen Faceoff tournament winner has also never won an NCAA tournament game the same year so maybe you don't want to win this thing.

    We don't exactly have a large sample size to make that a solid connection.

    That said, I think UMD bests DU in the championship game.

    UND pushes too hard in the 3rd place game, knowing their season is on the line, and drops a heartbreaker to WMU. (That's more wishful thinking on my part than any actual analytical reasoning.)

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    It is a streak that SHOULD be broken this year and is definitely just a coincidence. For the best conference in college hockey it is somewhat interesting though.

    Re: Frozen Faceoff 2017: DU, UND, UMD and WMU

    You'd have to go with DU to win this thing, they haven't lost since that game at Western in mid-January. They feel like that 2012 BC team that was unbeatable and dominated to the national title.

    I think we'll have a UMD-DU title game with DU winning.


    Although my predictions are crap so I could be a jinx on all of this.

    Hopefully you continue to be a jinx at least on your DU prediction
