It's a legit question. They seem pretty adept at winning tournament games, and clearly do not.
Tech/SCSU was a valiant effort ****ed by the refs + a brutal broken stick.
Tech/ND was a broken stick that hurt me real bad
BGSU/UMD took a greasy goal, but it happened
Mankato... Well they just keep doing Mankato things.
Meanwhile 16s get upsets. Those easy wins. Obviously it's not as big of a gap in regionals as the shooty hoops, but it is interesting to compare and contrast their success.
Edit to add: Tech nerd through and through. Hard to watch the WCHA continuously fail like they do
