SCSU was utterly clueless against UNO this season, nearly getting swept at home and actually doing so in Omaha. They eked out a tie against UNO in one of their home games--where they also blew a third period lead.

In the process, SCSU got shut out, TWICE, and blew a 3 goal third period lead in another game in Omaha. SCSU was outscored 14-7 and got outshot 151-101, overall.

Now, they all of a sudden have UNO figured out and are going to vanquish them in the tournament?

I'm not talkin' trash, I'm just talkin' truths.

You're right. I bet Omaha beats SCSU 13-0 en route to their first national championship. :rolleyes:

While UNO would be the favorite, to think that the current SCSU squad, which has been playing very well of late, has no shot against them is just silly.

Sioux in 1. They win 8-2 on Friday, and Tech agrees to just split it into two, 4-1 scores for both games and get back on the bus a day early.

But wouldldn't North Dakota play SCSU in the semifinals since SCSU would be the lowest seed remaining. so they would get UND in the semifinals and Minnesota would get Denver. remember, they reseed after the first round.

I never said that.

However, those that forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

The past results speak for themselves.

SCSU all of a sudden got SO much better and UNO all of a sudden got SO much worse?

The same UNO team Coached by Dean Blais that leads the nation in shots on goal, shots on goal versus shots allowed differential, and shutouts?

I'm listening. Tell me why.

Meanwhile, UNO is #6 in Pairwise.

Sorry, until you fart in our general direction, we're farting in yours.

Respect is something earned, not some sort of "we're playing well lately--even though we finished 9th" birthright.

MN wins it all, so it doesn't matter to me who wins first round, etc.

I forgot about that. Caught up in the Alaska Schools flexing their muscle and joining the same conference talk.

No worries. It happens.

I made a safe, but bold bet though. MTU wins the series, I sport a UND uni, photo proof. And you know my feelings on UND...

Yup, know your feelings. Might as well 1 up it and hug dirty with said Jersey if you lose. Pic mandatory.

I would never hug Dirty, no matter how "safe" the bet. You ask too much.
