    Listened to semi #2 on radio online. Haven't heard so many hard O's in my life. Both guys couldn't have sounded more like the Midwestern cliché especially the color commentator. Loved it! Oh no doncha know!

    And can someone remind me why these D1 Frozen Four games aren't being streamed free on NCAA.com? Seems like they were just a couple of years ago.

    Shea Tiley's a winner and as the Jane Fonda look-alike argued deserves a Patty Kazmaier award, but will just have to settle for her 2nd National Championship. Clarkson wins Sunday, but what a gritty performance by Colgate in their win over Wisconsin.

    I'm basically in category #3, though I will be there to watch.

    Because people complained and complained that the games weren't on tv, so now that a network is providing the resources to broadcast the games on tv, they want to get $omething out of it.

    If you want free streaming, you can't have tv, if you want tv, you can't have free streaming. (Personally, I'll take the tv, because that means the streaming is significantly higher quality than what we were getting on ncaa.com)

    In the 2017 final four, the first semi was won 1-0 on a late goal. The second game went 4-3; one team would take a one-goal lead, the other would tie it up; one goal lead, tie, one goal lead, tie. Again the game winner came on a late goal.

    If 2018 continues to be a replay of the 2017 FF, with the actors playing different roles, then Colgate carries a one goal lead late into the third, gets an insurance goal when Clarkson abandons playing defense, and an empty-netter at the end.

    I'm going with Clarkson, because Colgate is the only school of the 4 that didn't send their real band to the Frozen Four, and to the best of my knowledge, no school has ever won the title while using a rent-a-band.

    I'm pretty sure that was not the real Ohio State band. I don't think they played once after the opening faceoff.

    I'm Cat 3 also, but predicting Colgate based on their performance tonight. Liked their fans a lot more than Clarkson's, and forgive them for not bringing their pep band. It's spring break, I guess, and kids have priorities. Amazed and pleased at the number of fans that made it here for the weekend. Will be interesting to see Sunday's crowd size, with two Eastern teams playing. I'll bet Ridder's numbers will still be better than the recent CT and NH tournaments.

    I'm taking Clarkson, having the NC experience and goaltending that they have, but I don't really care who wins - it's just refreshing to see two east teams in the final.

    I also don’t care who wins at this point. I liked having the game on tv. That was awesome. I wonder if BTN will still get rights, produce it if the location is non big ten. I want to say yes, since Big Ten teams of the WCHA are always in it.

    I was thinking the same thing last night. You beat me to posting it. Point #2, Clarkson is undefeated against the WCHA in the NC$$ Frozen Four (4-0) and has only lost to 1 Eastern Team in the NC$$ Frozen 4 (1-1).

    CHA is considered a "Western" conference. Or to be REALLY geo specific, CCT has never beaten a team located east of Potsdam in the FF.

    You think? I consider them central by women’s hockey standards, but with 5 out of 6 teams in NY or PA, mostly Northeastern by geography terms. Certainly didn’t matter one way or another but I had never thought of them as a western conference.

    BTN is under contract to air all of the FF games through the 2020 season.

    I suppose if Big Ten teams stop regularly getting into it they might rethink extending that deal, but that seems less likely than other ($) reasons to impact what happens beyond 2020.

    To the extent the Women's FF continues to be scheduled on the opening weekend of the NCAA Hoops Tournaments, I like our chances of keeping the deal.

    ALL casual sports fan are focused on basketball this weekend. The sports channels left on the outside need to find a small group of devoted viewers who are willing to shun hoops for their sport. Hockey fans are as good a candidate as any.

    Presumably last night's semi-finals made a good impression on the BTN people. Even the though the results weren't so hot for the B1G teams, the games were spectacular.
