Before starting your own thread, please view this public service announcement (http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/posting).

Please allow this thread to serve as your place to complain about the PWR (http://www.uscho.com/rankings/pwr.php), the committee, the smoke-filled room (http://www.uscho.com/faq/pairwise-rankings-explanation/) or your misinformed views about why undeserving teams like Denver or Robert Morris stole your team's spot. This is also a good place to complain about your coach, the referees, the RPI formula, KRACH (http://www.uscho.com/rankings/?data=krach) and the entire process.

This version of the thread even promises entertaining topics such as Penn State killing hockey, Joe Thornton being traded, Giada's Melons, Merrimack being kicked out of Hockey Rast, #26 Union, area clowns, a symposium on the many hackings of Freddy Meyer and the always-popular college hockey video game.

We also have several types of cheese (http://www.ilovecheese.com/) to go along with whatever whine you prefer. We promise you'll get your just desevrings!

We got screwed. ROMO? We should be playing Army in the first round! They're the worst team in the PWR!

Let's start the "Giada's Melons" discourse immediately:

If it makes you feel any better, Army actually beat Robert Morris in one of the 3 games in their AHA first round weekend. ;)

Whoa.

Nice job, but you should have warned us: This video starts out with Tranny Griffin. But stay with it. It quickly gets better.

You can't kick Merrimack out when {PROVICED should clearly be kicked out of Hockey Rast first.

My team played below .500 the last month (3-7) and didn't make the tournament. We were screwed!

My team got screwed because we're Michigan.

They clearly forgot the Michigan rule.

For 22 years, Michigan got an automatic bid don't ya know?

It's actually in North Carolina, not Bristol. But still, East Coast Bias!

Can we complain about the complainers? The process is clearly defined and is the worst kept secret in college sports.

This might be the easiest bracket with the least amount of complaining ever. Michigan was last out, but no Michigan fan would argue they belong in. North Dakota was able to sneak in. Pretty much straight bracket integrity. Only regional host earned the top seed. It's rarely that easy.

Vermont and HE got screwed, they should be playing Wisco in Cincy setting up a possible all HE FF. Instead they put them in CT playing Union eliminating the possibility. WESTERN BIAS

EZAC refs are biased toward #26.

Don't the defending champions get an automatic bid? They don't? We're willing to take the 15th seed again.... Just sayin'.

Brown tied BC so we should be a one seed tbh

But the prospect of a Bennett/Leaman fist fight on Saturday should make fans everywhere happy... from Troy to St, Clooud.

My team had a losing record to Penn State and just barely missed the tournament. Clearly it is all Penn State's fault! Why has no one taught them to fear the name Michigan and not even try to skate with us?

This is the second year in a row that the Michigan rule has been forgotten. This is inexcusable. May all the sinners who forgot to include my team in the tournament burn in the fires of Mordor! I want more smoke filled rooms and tournament selection based on name recognition alone!
Minnesota State Mankato? Colgate? Quinnipiac? Who has even heard of these teams? One of them is a toothpaste and one of them no one knows how to pronounce. Also, how is #26 Union considered to be part of the top 16? They are #26, it's in their name and everything!
