It's selection Sunday! (At least it is in an hour on the east coast)

Here are all the possible scenarios:

What do we know?

(1) Wisconsin will host Robert Morris
(2) Duluth will host Minnesota
(3) If BC wins they will host St. Lawrence.
(4) If NU and Clarkson win, SLU hosts BC, Clarkson hosts NU, and Cornell is out.
(5) If NU and Cornell win, SLU hosts Cornell, Clarkson hosts NU, and BC is out.

I think you are wrong. If SLU falls to 5th in the rankings, Clarkson will be hosting SLU and BC will be hosting Cornell. Remember, how does the NC$$ save the most money, SLU does not have to pay for hotel rooms and a bus ride from Canton to Boston or Ithaca to Boston is a wash.

I hear you on this, but I don't think the committee is going to do that this year. I think the differences between the teams are too great for them to justify this.

I'm not saying it ISN'T GONNA HAPPEN, because last year caught everyone totally off guard, but it would really surprise me*.

*Having said that I would loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee it if this happened lol

Being that it looks like the only flight will be Robert Morris going to Wisconsin, I would agree with TTT that I don't think that Clarkson/St.L will be the matchup.

Then again, I'm hoping to be surprised by the NC$$ going back to how they did things back in 2009 when they just followed the seeding and flew Duluth out to New Hampshire, while sending both Dartmouth and BC out to Wisconsin and Minnesota.

RMU coming to Madison -- if I drive down in my RIT sweater, will it be obvious I'm rooting for the conference? :p

This means that UMD/UM and UW are on opposite sides of bracket for semi finals, correct?

I'd be careful if I were you. Resistance may be futile and you could be assimilated into the Wisconsin Borg. Various Gold and Maroon colors may help ward off the WB, especially when it's just one game, but we'll know more about that later today. Probably not much data on effectiveness of orange and shades of brown. Good luck!

*Having said that I would loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee it if this happened lolI'm not sure -- Cornell seems to be playing as well or better than SLU right now.

I'd guess 50% won't know what RIT stands for. Another 48% have heard of RIT, but won't have any idea that they are in the same conference as RMU. But you'll have plenty of respect from the remaining 2%!

And possibly better than BC for that matter.

Yeah I'm starting to come around on this idea (especially if Cornell manages to win today)

I agree also. As a Clarkson fan Cornell has been Clarkson's achilles heel in the Post Season.

2010 - Cornell 4 Clarkson 3 OT ECAC Championship Lynah
2014 - Cornell 1 Clarkson 0 ECAC Championship Cheel
2015 - Cornell 3 Clarkson 1 ECAC Semi-Final Cheel

Only time they have beaten Cornell in the post season
2016 - Clarkson 2-0 and 5-2 ECAC Quarter-Finals
Throw in 2016 - Quinny 1 Clarkson 0 ECAC Championship at TD Bank

Clarkson - The Buffalo Bills or Minnesota Vikings of the ECAC Tournament :(

Thanks for the work on that, Grant. A VERY useful tool.

BC vs St Lawrence would be a nice match up!
UMD vs UM would be a good good matchup (except it just happened, but oh well)
Cornell vs Clarkson - I predicted Cornell beating St Lawrence, but I can't see them beating Clarkson (rinse and repeat)
Robert Morris vs Wisconsin-welcome to the west!

I think they announce the times with the brackets
