    Frozen Four Oddities.

    Some notes on the Frozen Four

    Since 1981, when the tournament expanded to 8 teams (then to 12, and now 16), there have been 5 (counting this year), All-West Frozen Fours. The last was in 2005 when DU, UND, CC and UMn were all in Columbus, which is the only time one conference (WCHA) had all the representatives in the FF.

    There has never been an All-East FF.

    There have been 10 3/1 splits - 6 in favor of the West, 4 in favor for the East. Since 1991, the 1 has won.

    All time champions by State:
    Michigan: 14
    Massachusetts: 10
    Colorado: 9
    North Dakota: 7
    Wisconsin: 5
    Minnesota: 5
    New York: 4 (Homer pick)
    Maine: 2
    Ohio: 1

    Cheeseheads, don't feel so down -- at D-III, your state has 9 championships. Minnesota only has 1.

    Re: Frozen Four Oddities.

    This year's Frozen Four features teams from geographically contiguous states: ND --> Minnesota --> Michigan --> Indiana

    PS how is it that two teams east of the Mississippi River make this an 'all west' frozen four? Are we back in 1805 again when Indiana was part of the Northwest Territory?

    Re: Frozen Four Oddities.

    This year's Frozen Four has all WCHA or former members of the WCHA in it. All 7 of UND's NCAA titles are as a member of the WCHA and 7 of Michigan's 9 NCAA titles were as a member.

    Was one of the titles won before Wisconsin was a state? Or was the University of Wisconsin once located in a different state? Or did the NCAA vacate one of Wisconsin's titles?

    Which Michigan school(s) won titles while not located in Michigan? University of Michigan? Michigan State University? Michigan Technological University? Northern Michigan University? Lake Superior State University? Or were the missing titles all vacated?

    I've thought this as well. We are stuck in the 1860's apparently.

    For college hockey the WCHA and CCHA are "west". Which is different from my thinking as a Minnesotan. To me, west is Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, ect.
