Yeah, frequency skewing is an issue with your little poke. Two can play that game: FTR- Michigan is 15-13-9-5 in 42 appearances. 5/42= 12% last place finishes. UND, 1/4= 25%. So, if they are marginally better in their victories, the stats show they are also marginally worse than Michigan in defeat.

The 1988 appearance was in the final, so you can get a ribbon for participating. It started a string of nine straight championships for Michigan. The other championship was in 1967, which, according to fans who mock at Michigan's aged national championship banners, "isn't relevant anymore" since 13 of Michigan's 15 GLI championships have occurred since 1988. The tournament began in 1965. UND does hold the most "4th" participant championships, though. The team with the best percentage: The University of Toronto- 1 for 1 in the inaugural tourney.

Perhaps I should have said this earlier, and I know this might be difficult for Michigan fans to realize because their team doesn't ever travel, but outside of Michigan, nobody really cares about the GLI. :p:D:D

Bean Pot > GLI

Not that anyone cares about the BP either.


Heck, the Chippewa Falls Bantam A Tourney that my kid's team is going to is > GLI.

OK. OK. Can we at least agree on this. If all players wear leather skates and the goalies play without face masks at the FF, Michigan will win.

If that is true about the series with tech, that's great. Certainly is something new and will be weird to see Michigan playing tech somewhere other than JLA. I know Michigan is going to be scheduling the in state WCHA schools to keep their programs afloat because you know they will take a hit without the big boy schools coming in weekly.

Yeah, it's kind of like the Dodge Mariucci Holiday Classic. (I thought I'd say it before a Whioux fan did.;))

This thread makes my day, every day. Minnesota and Wisconsin fans trying to start fights with the fans from the soon to be defunct CCHA schools.

Your trolling will be more effective in a couple of weeks. We don't think about hockey all the time.

If you don't think about it all the time, you are not true hockey fans. :p

I'd enjoy this because it is the only time EVER you will see MN and WI fans come together and unite against a common enemy. We'll see how long that lasts.

It means 2 National Championships, 22 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, 11 Frozen Four appearances since 1991. :p

How is it possible to go the tourney 22 straight times and only win two of them? That's a staggering amount of failure.

Then again, coming out of the CCHA probably doesn't prepare a team for actual competition.

The Bills are embarrassed for you guys.

Michigan is the only program in the B1G that is a consistent Top-5 program nationally. Like them or not, they're always there.

Sure. Michigan plays in a crap conference and gets easy wins. Congratulations. Minnesota could be a consistent Top-5 program if their entire conference was filled with pseudo Community Colleges like the CCHA is.

Don't forget they have the number one recruiting class every year.

That's their fault that teams are sub par in the CCHA, not Michigan's. Can't help the conference they play in.
