    I work for a living and just going to the Regional tapped me out. Don't expect a lot of Ohio State fans unless they're much better off financially than me.
    Breaks my heart too because I was there at the beginning of our program in '63 and would give almost anything to be at the Frozen 4 for my team!
    Understandable. My comment was more about who has more college hockey fans, Ohio State or Notre Dame.

    They'll be cheaper on the streets. Even moreso if you don't mind missing the first part of the game.

According to the championship manual, the reserved sections are 113/114 and 216, sections 119/120 and 222, sections 101/126 and 201/202, and sections 106/107 and 206/207. Seed 1 gets the corners behind the bench they will use, seed 2 the corner behind the other team bench and seeds 3 and 4 the corners opposite their team's bench. Based on this, if Notre Dame uses the Wild bench, they should be 119/120, OSU should be 113/114, UM should be101/126 and UMD should be 106/107. But according to the manual though, locker room and bench selections are to be determined. For some reason I seem to remember that in 2011, Notre Dame used what is now the Wild's bench in their game against UMD, and wasn't UMD the higher seed in that game? I would also suggest calling either the Xcel ticket office or one of the participating team's ticket manager and see what they say.

    *eta* I just checked and in 2011 Notre Dame was on what is now the visitor bench and UMD the Wild bench, so I'm guessing my round-up of ticket locations is probably correct.

    How much cheaper?
    I was only at one previous Frozen Four and that was back in 2005 because it was here in Columbus. If Ohio State advances I'm now considering the 12 hour drive, buy a (hopefully) bargain ticket outside and drive back afterwards in stages.

    I don't know. DU will hardly have any fans. MI and tUMD will have some (many residents here). OSU? I think they have less traveling fans than DU. IF I decide to catch a game, my offer will be honestly insulting. That's how little I care. Offer will be $10. Maybe $15. Per game.

    Pro-tip: don't wear your team's gear when buying the ticket. Scalpers will use that to their advantage.

    Thanks, that's what I was looking to hear and also thanks about the tip!

    That is NOT 3 B1G teams I see??? lol Best part is that I went to the one school not among the B1G contingent. Would rather my Gophers had .002 more in RPI, then we might have 4 B1G teams in the Frozen Four?

    As I briefly mentioned to the Clarkson faithful over on the Women's Hockey Board: The OSU Hockey Community is relatively small, and relatively close knit. OSU, as a whole, is truly vast. But in many ways it's a collection of smaller, more manageable communities.

    Another way to look at it: The other three hockey programs are all more decorated than we are. On the ice, we're the new kids; we're the underdog.

    Agree with HockeyBuckeye on the turnout, for multiple reasons.

    1. Based in part on 1998, I'd expect we'll sell out our allotment. Then there's a small group of Buckeye fans who go to the FF annually. But outside of those two groups, only a few more will travel. I'm guessing we'll have 800-900 people in the building, tops. The other schools will all bring more. (In the case of Duluth, a lot more.)

    2. Driving time is also a factor. Those traveling from South Bend are looking at 7.5 to 8 hours. In contrast, Columbus is a 12 to 13 hour trip. That's actually a big difference. 8 hours is a work day. But after about 10 hours, "You just wish the trip was through," to borrow a Bob Seger phrase.

    3. Finally, Notre Dame has alumni everywhere. And even more importantly, they have non-alum sports fans everywhere. I'd anticipate that ND will get some help from the large Irish-American community in St. Paul. Even if our coach is a Hill-Murray alum.

    Oh, by the way: Minnesota-based fans should keep in mind that the Michigan coach is an EDINA alum. Just sayin'.

    I guess that means that UMD isn't Maryland.

    A Notre Dame - UMD final is on order.
    Ohio State will face a hostile environment, but have the team to overcome it.

    However, it will be a road game for sure.....

    Not so sure about 3. Minneapolis doesn't have a significant Irish heritage. It's not Chicago. It's primary immigrant waves were Nordic and Northern German and very Protestant. And besides, as a Chicagoan, I can say that the subway alum thing is a a faint echo of its past. The grandchildren of the subways just don't have that attachment to ND, and the fresh off the boat Irish (and other Catholic immigrants) follow soccer.

    Almost all sports traditions like the Notre Dame Subway-Alums are fading memories but if you are in the Xcel Center on Thursday, you'll see that even if it is not what it was in the 1950s, 60s or 70s, the Subway-Alums are quite alive and well. I've not seen a game played by this hockey team from Maine to Colorado -- despite being barely a blip on the college hockey radar until the last decade or so -- where there were not a better than you'd think showing of Notre Dame rooters. Duluth fans will probably outnumber the rest of us combined, but Notre Dame is not going to lack for fans there.

    St Paul does. You know, where the games are being played.

    You know Minneapolis, but to this point you've missed out on St. Paul. St. Patrick's Day is huge there. Giant Irish Festival in the summertime as well.

    Will some fans of those events will come the FF next weekend? I can't respond with confidence. But my my guess is that it will be a small, but noticeable, factor in the make-up of the crowd.

    If you want to defend the opposite guess, you'd argue that these are casual fans who won't bother with the secondary ticket market.
