Pick the winners .. you may vote multiple times, so use your four votes to pick the four victors.

CCT over SLU was the only real upset of the bunch that I picked, and that's only because all the games in the NC are toss-ups.

RPI has 11 votes to Brown's zero. Fantastic...

Wow. If only they played the series on a message board, RPI would already be sizing up its some-dozenth national championship ring. ;)

Since I regard SLU-CCT as a tossup, and I voted for SLU in Vic's contest, I'll take Clarkson here. :)

We'd come in second every year. The national championship ring would go to Michigan Tech. :eek:

Attendance through Friday and Saturday at any of the games was not exactly stellar.:(

Harvard @ Princeton had the fewest at a game -- 841 (Friday).

Brown @ RPI had the lowest percentage of capacity -- 23.4% (Saturday) and was the only series with lower attendance on Saturday than Friday.

Dartmouth @ Quinnipiac had the largest number of fans -- 1901 (Saturday).

Clarkson @ Saint Lawrence the highest percentage of capacity -- 63.0% (Saturday).

Wow...That's terrible. Why do you guys think that is?

I hope to see a packed house at Messa when Union plays Quinnipiac on Friday even though it's the beginning of finals week on Monday for Union students.

Many reasons: spring breaks, the economy, the fact that there were three ~.500 teams and five sub-.500 teams playing, short notice for where teams would be, etc. The first round games have never been stellar draws, but it does seem a bit down this year. RPI is really the series that sticks out for me - I would have expected much better. Princeton and Quinnipiac don't draw that well overall anyway, and SLU probably didn't get too much help from the fans of the #12 team - tough for them to be up for the series even for a rivalry game.

Final attendance stats didn't improve, which was not a surprise to me. Even though it may be the last game of the year, third games in these series rarely have the best attendance.

Average attendance:


Harvard@Princeton
897.5
42.7% of Capacity.

Clarkson@St. Lawrence
1639.7
54.7%

Brown@RPI
1438
27.6%

Dartmouth@Quinnipiac
1782.3
57.8%.

Kudos such as they are, go to Quinnipiac.
