of course, if they suck, they suck. Some of those high fullutin teams need to see how the other half lives.

Then Colorado College gets included in these rankings.

My Far Too Early auto bids:

Michigan State
Colorado College
Alaska Anchorage
Brown
AIC
UMass
Arizona State

What is this talk about "auto bids"? I thought that auto bids were reserved as an arcane bizarre concept of that other tournament?

I may have mixed up the rink at WVU and the fan behavior at Wheeling College. So long ago. Aluminum stick days.



However, WVU's sweater game strong.

(I hope that this board is now high tech enough to have images. Most of the players in the NCAA, even at Merrimack, were born after AOL cd's were a thing)

If there's still that mandate for "media", ham radio operators will once again broadcast CW on "dead" bands.

Arkansas Skatium in Little Rock, AR also inquired about a Futile Four bid, but after reviewing their facilities, I regretfully informed them that they were not down to the committee's standards, as the rink was too brightly lit and had too much spectator seating. Also, Little Rock has a substantial airport for relatively easy access, and a Presidential Library & Museum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLzOjQVodeg), so there is too much entertainment available in the surrounding area.
Little Rock's Barton Coliseum on the state fairgrounds is easily far worse than the Skatium. But the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana takes things to a new low. A temporary chiller, player accessing the ice via a rubber matt over a dirt floor, plus a little history as Tampa Bay's Jon Cooper began his NAHL career there. The big Sandy Super Center in Huntington WV is also among the worst I've been in. One other option would be the ElPaso County Coliseum with it 72x180 ice surface in the livestock stench at the loading gate where to busses drop the team's off! These are all worse than the rink in Lafayette!

It's there in the bylaws, SHOTS 2.7:

"And behold, each conference shall have one automatic bid for the suckiest team in each conference."

Where the auto bids fall in SHOTS, I don't know yet.

There are carrier pigeons as well.

WGVU out of Allendale, MI asked about televising the Futile Four, but I had to inform them that any TV is too good for these teams.

I thought UHF broadcast was allowed?

Nah, people can pick that up. Local access, on the other hand...

Channel 62 is willing to broadcast the entire tournament!

Oops, my bad; I somehow missed SHOTS 2.7. I need to read these By-Laws more carefully.

Joe, Flaggy, if you want to broadcast on public Access, that will be fine. But we have to do it when the only ones awake are farmers and insomniacs.

No. If you want tickets to the Futile Four:

Go to the library.
Go to the cookbooks.
Find the copy of Joy of Cooking.
Pull on it.
You will open a portal.
The portal will take you to Jim, a one legged man with a huge mole on his face.
Jim will sell you tickets.

I assume he only takes American Express.
