Two Number Seeds.

I think Miami will come out nervous & tight against BC. After all, a Boston school has sent Miami home the past three years.

Tonight's game determined whether there will be 35,000 at Ford Field...or 35. No matter, it's great to see a FF comprising four different leagues.

The people in Detroit can't be too happy at tonight's outcome. I was actually pleased to see Miami win on a rather soft OT goal since they lost the same way last year. As for Michigan, I was at the FleetCenter in 1998 to see them win the Championship on a soft goal. So I guess tonight's outcome balanced things out somewhat.

BC-Miami is the late game, BTW.

I believe it's been 4 years. We've had the pleasure of doing it 3 times. Unless of course, you're forgetting last year's national championship game happened (which I don't blame you for doing :().

I figured we'd be the late game no matter the outcome of Miami-Michigan because either a) we'd be facing Michigan who would pack the house for the late game or b) it would be the only matchup of two number 1 seeds. It's going to be a LONG next two weeks...can't we just play tomorrow??

Michigan worried me the most...they were hot, and they had a lot of lady luck working for them (well, until tonight).

Just had to include (OH) in the title didn't you.

Should be a good one. I'm going to conveniently forget for the next two weeks that Yale knocked in 7 goals and lost :rolleyes: .

It's ok. We'll conveniently forget that Miami (OH) blew a 3-1 lead with a minute to go in the NCAA Championship game, too...:)

I think this game's winner will take the trophy on Saturday.

Well you guys aren't in Miami!!! Change your name to Oxford University!

[/BU fanboy] :p :D

I agree with you that this should be a good game though. A top offense vs. a top defense is always a great matchup to watch.

Unlike MUhawks628, I am definitely NOT over it, and I won't be over it until they bring home the hardware. However, I'm over being bothered by the reference, particularly after having to see that ****ed ridiculous OT game-winner on TV every time our games are broadcast and on the big screen at the Coliseum a bazillion times before the games and during the intermissions this past weekend.

Hopefully in 2 weeks, I can say I'm over it :)

I still vomit a little each time i see that...especially since I was there.

They did seem to play it during every TV timeout last night, just cut in with a different music video. But yeah I don't think anyone is going to be satisfied until we win it all, I just don't get the urge to curl into a ball and sob every time I see that clip anymore. Not to say it isn't still painful to watch.

Trust me, you'll never get over it. 20 years from now, you'll be at an NCAA game and they'll show it and you'll cringe, even though you've (maybe possibly) won an actual title or two. They keep showing 1991 every. single. year. 1995 helped. A lot. And last season helped even more. Mostly because I know they will keep showing it over the years at NCAA tournaments to come. Now it's your turn to see it every. single. year. :)

That said, congrats on making it back to the Frozen Four. And best of luck. I have to say, I love the Miami uniforms this year.

agree with scarlet , you will NEVER get over it...............i liken it to BC hitting the post twice in OT in 1998 vs Michigan .......IN BOSTON! 2001 helped but you never get back the one you lost.............sorry :(

As a UNH fan who keeps having to see the '99 OT footage over and over (Krog has a wide open net, hits the post, Maine skates up ice and scores) I feel Miami fans' pain.

I'm really not rooting for anyone in the Frozen Four this year, but here's hoping Miami gets redemption quicker than UNH (i.e. ever). Best I have is the comeback against NoDak last year. It was nice to see footage of that over and over in DC, but it's not quite the same.

I really can't pick a horse in this one. I don't mind either team/program whatsoever. Just hoping for a good game.
