Just some random statistics about the tournament, and teams getting to the Frozen Four, since we went to a 16 team field (11 seasons, not counting the present one):

1. Regional #1 seeds have made it to the Frozen Four 20 of 44 chances.
2. Regional #2 seeds have made it 9 of 44 chances.
3. Regional #3 seeds have made it 9 of 44 chances.
4. Regional #4 seeds have made it 6 of 44 chances.


5. Six of the 11 champions have been #1 seeds in their region.
6. Two were #2 seeds.
7. Two were #3 seeds.
8. One was a #4 seed.

In terms of the breakdown of the #1 regional seeds who made the Frozen Four:

9. 8 of the 20 were the #1 seed overall. 3 became champs.
10. 3 of the 20 were the #2 seed overall. 1 became champs.
11. 6 of the 20 were the #3 seed overall. 1 became champs.
12. 3 of the 20 were the #4 seed overall. 1 became champs.


9 of the 11 champs have come out of either the #1 overall seed's bracket, or the #2 overall seed's bracket. The only 2 champions to come out of either the #3 or #4 overall seed's brackets happened to be the first seed in that bracket (Minnesota in '03 and BC in '10).

Finally, if you were to list the overall seed of the champions over the past 11 seasons, it would look like this:

3, 8, 2, 1, 10, 7, 1, 4, 9, 1, 15

Interesting that only #1 overall repeated.

Reading this just verifies that what Yale did last year was absolutely remarkable. Queue---"Glory Days"
