Mark Divver reported Providence did not put in a bid for the next regional cycle, conflict with another event.

I thought he said Brown didnít put in the bid.

Gopher fans have lots of room to talk on this subject.

Never as a 4 seed.

Don't like it? Bid to host.

Kind of how I feel about it. Besides, if North Dakota was in everybody would be howling about them playing in Fargo. And thereís not much point in anybody holding it against Providence that they basically played at home...the NCAA and the selection committee put them there to maximize attendance and revenue.

In a perfect world, the NCAA would lower the dollar guarantee for regionals to encourage more schools to bid for regionals and balance things out more. But the problem with that logic is the NCAA still gets its $150k guarantee in the current system where most schools donít want to risk losing the money if the attendance doesnít pan out. The only way it will ever change is if the NCAA only gets two or three bids to host regionals in a given year.

That was a major choke by MSUM's PP unit. PPG: 44 (1st), GWG: 32 (1st) and they can't bury a PPG (0-3). 4/6 goals by Providence were PPGs.

with standing room, a little over 5000.

can only review for a major.

yeah, they had a grueling ten-minute bus ride. Not a home game at all.
Their hotel was in Warwick. Everyone else stayed inProvidence.

I canít to hear the complaints about the officiating next.

UMD is the best team I've seen this season, but I have to cheer for the Falcons here. They've had to work so hard to overcome the horrors of the Bowling Green massacre.

I'm sure that is a relief to the rest of the old WCHA who had to play tournaments at the X...how many times did the top seed have to play the late game because they were up against the Gophers?

They're playing in Providence.........same thing as far as crowd goes. Total B.S.

MSUM are 3rd in the PWR with the second best W% in the NCAA, Providence is 14th. The committee had an attendance $$$ obsession with this location. Not at all fair.

Seriously Jon, this is the stupidest argument that this wasnít a home game. I firmly believe if this was the 1-4 game in Allentown rather than in Providence, the result would probably be the same. I do not feel that on the ice, there was any advantage for Providence. But you cannot say that itís not an advantage for the program to not have to get on a plane and fly somewhere. A lot of the fans there that wouldnít travel to an away game probably went to the Dunk. I think the issue is more that as a lower seed, they couldíve or shouldíve been seeded somewhere else. Stop trying to say this wasnít a home game. It was. It was NOT the difference on the ice, but it was an advantage for the program.

For years I argued that games at the X were home games for the Gophers but was told repeatedly that they weren't. So neither is this.

Don't like it? Bid to host.

Uh, I said I was done commenting about this, but Providence was not the host. They got all the benefits without making the financial committment.

I never said they were the hosts. I said it wasn't home ice. And it wasn't.

How many times has Denver had any sort of home advantage in the playoffs in recent ages? They seem to be doing fine... the difference between champions and cursed programs

But you said bid to host. Make a $150,000 donation to MSU, and they will bid to host the regional.

Imagine how it feels to be the guy to get the penalty that costs the team the season. Iíd say 75% chance they were going to lose before the penalty but still

Yup, that's got to be tough. After watching the replay it looked like the elbow came up and made contact to the head.

A big play in the game was the disallowed goal for offsides at the end of the first. That would have regained the 3 goal lead and stopped PC's momentum after they had scored. PC really got going after that first goal. It's hard to say how the game would have gone if MSU goes up 4-1.

If I had $150,000 to donate it wouldn't go to Mankato. :)

Playing Providence at the Dunk didn't seem to bother some teams, but I guess we can't all be as impressive as mighty Harvard.

If SCSU and Minn State make it next year just let them play each other

If that ever occurs Iím betting there will be a glitch in the matrix...
