There is no such rule.

Not a rule, I imagine calls were made. They gave them a choice.

NOTE TO NORWICH FANS GOING TO UTICA:

I spoke to the Aud Box Office this morning. THERE IS NO "GO OUT AND RE-ENTER" DURING THESE EVENTS!

That means that those of us even thinking about going to the first game (SNC/Trinity) on Friday should plan for a LONG day in the Utica memorial Auditorium. The first game is 3pm, and the Norwich game is unlikely to end until after 8pm at best.

The 1st game has the potential to be a marathon.

Possibly. It may start past their bedtimes. :)

Watch - a pair of 6-5 games.

After that U-Mass Boston..SNC semi last year, anything is possible...

Part of me, and part of a lot of us from what I can tell, are rather nervous because we're still not completely sold on how good this Cadets team is, notwithstanding a 25-1-3 record, a conference championship, and a Frozen Four birth.

But, on the other side, there's a lot of reason for opponents to fear this team. A senior-laden, experienced squad that is highly talented on both ends of the ice and has played the entire season with a chip on their shoulders. Perhaps we should be more confident. Going to be fun.

I believe that the Friday Semi matchup against Adrian will be our most difficult test yet. But the team has managed to step up each time they have been challenged, and most of the time exceeded our expectations in what could have been crucial games. I am anticipating the Adrian game more than any since we beat SNC for the title in 2010.

Honestly, I feel confident now that this team is very, very good. Now, could they lose to Adrian? Of course; but that wouldn't change my statement. I have zero remaining reservations about how good they are.

Single elimination playoffs are what they are. I hate them. This team that beat Hamilton I still maintain is the most well balances NU team we've had in years. Greats like Accoin, Bellmare, McLean, etc. were without question standouts...but we've seen a TOTAL TEAM grow from two goalie(s)...superb defense... to four lines that can all score. I have had few doubts about this team--they are very good...and very focused on the next game with Adrian.

Oh...and KRBFLINT '03t is spot on when he says that regardless of what happens now...this is a great team!!!!'

Here's a nice piece from the Manchester Union Leader on Christian Thompson--the young Norwich Freshman making his first trip to the NCAA final four.

We will always be reminded of the need to play the game, to produce a winner. We can go back and forth all day on how good or not good they are. It is now up to the coaches to have them prepared . They are good enough, now they just need to believe it. We thought there last game was the best one yet with more to come. If they can improve just a tiny bit over the next two games, no one can stop them. A couple of mental break downs, and a long ride home. It usually is all about a mistake or two, that makes the difference. I for one hope they can impose there game on Adrian and not the other way around. Lets hope there not afraid of the size of Adrian. This is one of those times in these guys careers they will never forget. May the Hockey Gods be with them.

I'm sorry I can't be in Utica to watch this Final Four, but health and age prevent me from making the trip north from Florida. Anyway, I believe this team has the makings of going all the way and come home to Northfield with the hardware. If it doesn't happen, it just doesn't, but this team is as good as we've had and belongs up there with the best of them. Anything can happen in a game of seconds and inches, but I think we have the team "chemistry" to win it all.
Whatever happens, they have given us a great season of hockey and deserve all the support we can give them.
Best of luck for the weekend and the futures of these fine young men who have worked so hard to get here. I had the good fortune to meet several of the seniors on the occasion of our 60th Reunion dinner held at Al Wilder's home in Brookfield. I'm very proud of this team and what they have accomplished .

If any posters are at the game tonight, please let us know how the turnout is in sections 102 and 202. We couldn't make the trip tonight, but we'll be there tomorrow. Hoping we can get 4 decent seats together.
