Well, to calm any fears you (or others) may have of a vast UNH conspiracy, all games are simulated using a program developed by the guys at CHW. If UNH gets to the Frozen Four, it will do so via the simulator. My input comes from my formula that I developed to rank teams historically. That being said, I was a bit surprised at the outcome. That '80-81 Minnesota squad had a tremendous top line (greatest ever?). Apparently it was just shy of enough to get them into the next round.

I was kidding my friend. I like this thread. It's fun to check out. :) My comment was directed to UNH's failure to "close the deal"

How about 1977-78 Denver vs 2001-02 Denver. The former was in the NCAA doghouse and the latter was sent to the House that Yost built. Both spent much of the season on top of the rankings.

I figured as much, and I was being a bit playful in my comment as well. :)

Obviously, '77-78 DU and '01-02 DU are both out of the tournament, so at this point in time, I won't be doing a recap or anything like that. However, I can throw them in the simulator and give you the outcome if you'd like?

Game time is at 3:00pm Eastern, so puck should be set to drop shortly.

Unknown yet as to who will be singing the National Anthem, but we should find out in a few moments as introductions are underway.

And it is Otis Redding singing the Star Spangled Banner!

What a performance!!

Well, I'll be back after the first twenty minutes are in the books, as the puck is about to be dropped by a CCHA officiating crew.

First period in the books. Pretty back and forth game, and both goalies managed to keep the opposition off the board. At least until the final minutes, when Jim Wiste scored on the powerplay for the Pioneers to give Denver a 1-0 lead through 20 minutes of play.

Second period is in the books. North Dakota pushed to get the equalizer, but Denver played a real strong period to keep the Sioux off the board. About midway through the second, Denver capitalized on an aggressive Sioux squad, as Tom Gilmore scored on a breakaway to give Denver a 2-0 advantage. That's the score after two periods of play.

Well, the third period has ended. North Dakota made a comeback, but was it enough?

Hey! There's no "playful" in hockey. This is some serious excrement in this thread!

Well, I was apparently over-ambitious in how many games I could get done this weekend. I won't be able to get another game done today, so the '01 BC - '84 BGSU game and '56 Clarkson - '88 LSSU game will get pushed back.

Here will be the proposed schedule next weekend...

Thursday:
Northeast Regional: #16 - 1955-1956 Clarkson vs. #49 - 1987-1988 LSSU
Midwest Regional: #20 - 2000-2001 BC vs. #45 - 1983-1984 BGSU

Friday:
East Regional: #26 - 1994-1995 BU vs. #39 - 1994-1995 Maine
West Regional: #3 - 1960-1961 DU vs. #62 - 2001-2002 UNH

Saturday:
Northeast Regional: #25 - 1970-1971 BU vs. #40 - 1984-1985 Duluth
Midwest Regional: #4 - 1986-1987 UND vs. #61 - 2003-2004 Maine

Sunday:
East Regional: #10 - 1997-1998 Michigan State vs. #74 2009-2010 Miami
West Regional: #22 - 1955-1956 Michigan vs. #86 - 1974-1975 Michigan Tech

Obviously, I'll do my best to get these games done as scheduled, but no guarantee.

Are you sure #10 rated is MSU, and not 1997-98 Michigan?

That would have been pretty tough for him to do since he died on December 10th, 1967.;)

The National Anthem part is fun, too.

It will be interesting to see who gets slotted into which spot.

Are you rotating through different genres, picking the tops from each one?

E.g.,

Motown:
Diana Ross, Gladys Night, etc.

Rock:
Jimi Hendrix, The Who, etc.

Country:
Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, etc.

Opera:
Renee Fleming, Placido Domingo, etc.


Superstars beyond a mere category:
Michael Jackson, The Beatles, etc.

Yes. They certainly surprised me at #10, but they had quite the season that year. The Spartans dominated the '98 Wolverines that season, beating them 4 times. Of course, like many Michigan State teams of that era, they failed when it counted the most, falling to Ohio State in Ann Arbor.

Like I said before, people have a knack of coming back from the dead to participate in this tournament in any way possible. ;)
