    I was counting on a forfeit.

    Always get a kick out of these posts.

    No one has heard a thing. Which is funny because we know Iran is working on nuculear technology but we have no idea what UND's new jerseys will look like

    I do wonder about how these brackets always seem to work out. There's always a cupcake regional with another that's somewhat easy.

    And only one of the following teams can make it to the NC:

    BC
    BU
    MN
    UND
    UMD
    Go Gophers!

    Season ticket holders got e-mails about ticket buying. I think there was an early period where there may have been a price break. At least it was through the NCAA so avoided Ticketbastard fees.

    That's come to be expected every year now, IMO.

    I liked the women's jerseys, and I would be willing to believe that they won't be bad.

    The new UND jerseys can only be actually seen by the worthiest of hockey fans. If you think you're watching a bunch of naked skaters next weekend, then we have as many questions for you as you have for us.

    We are jacked that our team is playing beyond anyone's expectations. It's a lot to expect they can continue at this level, but we still think they're awesome.

    Unfortunately, UND had the same line-up.

    Well, then. BU has exactly the recipe for beating Minnesota. It worked for UND. Drop a half dozen players out of the lineup, get a couple defensemen to play forward, and send out 6 scholarship forwards.

    Don't forget to rope-a-dope for half the game.

    I would figure Western Michigan to be the most dangerous 4th seed in the tourney, Two weeks ago they tied and won the shoot out at home vs #6 Ferris State and beat them the next night at Ferris. Last week they dispatched Lake State in 2 games at home. Friday night they dominated #5 Miami 6-2 and last night they led #2 Michigan 3-0 before winning 3-2. They're on a roll and their freshman goaltender is playing well. This will be an interesting region and I'm sure the winner of the first game will be rooting for BU in the second game

    I'd say you can bet on the second game having a lot of fans in green sweaters cheering for the Terriers.

    Trust me, you will be surprised. UND should have a very good showing, and, if they win, they will have thousands still cheering for BU at 4.

    We're 11-4-1 on the road this year; only 10-8 at home. Don't cheer too loudly!

    Well, if the Sioux win, you'll get a lot of cheering. It'll still be a pretty huge home crowd, but there will be a lot of "temporary" terriers.

    UND looks to have its hands full with Western Michigan, higher in the KRACH than both Minnesota and Boston University. By KRACH, 1 and 2 play, followed by 3 and 4.

    By the way, man, you have become noticeably crankier, as the years go by. Your comment suggests you suffer a St. Patty PTSD. Maybe I would too.

    Your ducts ought to be about empty by now, about Friday night. Rally yourself, man. Home cooking is always something to be encouraged about.
    No more slow starts to the season; we got over that hurdle. Now, Get it on!!! GO UND!!!

    This regional sets up nicely for a Minnesota Western Michigan final.
