It's television - entertainment. He probably hasn't even seen a college game all year...

Dude. I hope you're being facetious here. Because if not, you really need to stop. Bomber has probably been in person to more games than you have.

As for the bracket - it is a tough draw. Big deal. And seriously, we'll have a tough time going to Tampa? Really? Just Friday night all I read on here was how bad this team is and how they don't have it any more, blah blah blah fishcakes. It was all "It will be one and done in the NCAAs." And if that's the case, I'd rather it be in the toughest bracket with some potentially entertaining games. If I'm making this trip (which I am), I don't want to see Union (no offense Union). I've been saying all along it should not matter where they are in the PWR and who else needs to win. The team is going to St. Paul because that's where this season has lead them. Had they won a few more games (like Friday night), we could be not filling up Bridgeport, according to chickod. But they didn't, and, well, here we are.

I think they were referring to Buccigross...

I hope so.

Didn't Melrose or Ward laugh that he picked a BU-Miami rematch because Bucci's son goes to Miami? Not because he thinks BU has a shot, but if Miami goes, then why not have that rematch in the final.

Any BU fans here that are not going willing to lend me a jersey? I've been asked to bring one and I don't think the jerseys I have will fit this person.

Any chance NESN or another local station picks up the game or is it just going to be ESPN3?

Looks like BU game is at 5, right? The Bruins are playing at LA at 9 EST...so pregame show at 8:30. It could be done (unless there's a craptastic spring training game NESN wants to show). I would get in touch with NESN and ask them.

The Celtics, on the other hand, don't have a game. I would also contact someone at Comcast. If all else fails, try channel 38.

IIRC, the Merrimack-Notre Dame game from Manchester last year was aired live on Comcast.

Well said Scarlet. This team is a long shot to
Tampa regardless of bracket. Why not play one of the ultimate "name" programs in their home rink. Talk about zero pressure.

Should UND beat WMU, I'm sure you'll have a lot of Sioux fans on your side...although you may not want that to against your better road mentality ;)

I just bought my tickets. Section 112.

You can join us at the tailgate! :D

And for any BU fans in town, I'm 99% sure there will be a tailgate before the games. I will post any details as I find them out. As some BU fans can attest to (from the F4) last year, it's a fun time.

BU has a chance to single handedly knock out the entire WCHA from the NCAAs.:D;)

I know Buccigross is a Bruins fan, but is he also a BU guy/fan? Just picked you guys to go all the way to the final...against Miami.

Both of Buccigross' parents are BU grads. I remember he mentioned it on the selection show a few years ago.

There seems to be NC St. vs. UNC baseball live on NESN, and an MLS game live on CSN ending at 6 PM. Nothing of interest on channel 38.

At first I thought BU had a really tough draw but at second look I think it actually could be somewhat favorable. I would not want to be in BC or Michigan brackets and I wouldn't want to play against Miami in the first game which is the other bracket (not saying I'm excited to play Minn or North Dakota).

I'm not taking crazy pills and think BU is in any way a favorite or anything but they certainly have a chance of getting to Tampa. They have a Sr goalie with a ton of experience, you have a captain who has played and scored in a National Championship so there are some intangibles that could help. I have yet to see a team shut down there top line and they have good depth at defense. Again I know it's a longshot but I guess this rambling is to say it might not be as big a longshot as people think.
