    Now go out and lose to North Dakota. Or whoever you play. I'm taking my trophy and going home...

    Seriously, congrats to you guys, Streaker, Alphablue, Wolverine Trumpet, Alton, Lord (where the hell IS he) Sidious and most of anyone else I missed, you earned this one and I bet you'll enjoy it even more because of it.
    Improbable finish, but thanks. This is the team we all thought we had at the beginning of the season. Oh, IHF, I'll help ya-don't forget mattmi, KC, Bluevox, Annette_U-M and (lurking) Caustic, too. All of us Yost old timers.

    Maybe they can continue to get the breaks, play desperate and have fun. Lots of turnovers last night, Hunwick deflected the praise, but deserved his kudos. Need a better effort against BSU.

    Yeah I missed that, but in my defense it was late!

    And another question for you- think anyone from Indiana will root for Michigan? Yea, I don't think so either...
    Were you there for the UM/ND game in Fort Wayne in Poulin's last season? Nearly 8000 people showed up and if the crowd wasn't 70% UM fans I am Al Kaline. You won't have the neutrals rooting for you but my guess is whatever the crowd size is Michigan fans will outnumber the other three fanbases combined by a significant amount. As of now the event wasn't selling well. Miami fans think they got hosed (between you and me and the fencepost I think I probably agree *ducking* ) but I don't know that a lot of them were scooping up the tickets.

    ETA I don't think the committee was screwing Miami or really trying to "help' UM (the way you guys are playing you may not need a lot of help) because it looks as though they were concerned about crowd size. If there had been a regional in Milwaukee that this year that Wisco would not have otherwise made I could have seen them switching around a lot of 2 seeds as the rules allowed to move them, for example.

    Interesting bracket- CHA vs. CCHA.

    Get to play a great BSU team, and a possible re-match with Miami (assuming they take out UAH).

    wT- this is desert, and drinks.

    I don't care who we play, as this is totally unexpected (as of a month ago). (although, I was actually hoping to play North Dakota or Denver- that would have been a blast)

    IHF- appreciate it, but it's all the players (and it's alfa, as in the italian car, not the letter )

    Notre Dame clinched that trophy the first weekend of the CCHA playoffs with the loss to OSU and Michigan's win over LSSU.

    What an unbelievable run and improbable story written by Shawn Hunwick. Congrats. It's always better when Michigan is in the tourney (just hopefully not against BC)

    Well both of the projections (here and collegehockey.net) have us playing in St. Paul against St. Cloud. I guess the committee could put us in Fort Wayne with Miami to help attendance (we wouldn't play them in the first round) but who knows.
    In Moys blogs he always refers to consideration of attendance being an issue, but I have not seen any tangible evidence of the committee doing it in the last few tourneys, really much at all since it went to 16 teams. I suppose I could see his point with helping two sites (especially the west regional) by flipping the two regions and putting DU out east. But there is NO reason to move off a strict 1-16, 2-15, 3-14 etc etc banding, which they claim is their first consideration after making whatever allowances they need to for host teams, avoiding conflicting first round match ups and those sorts of things. So even if Michigan doesn't end up in Worcester, I can't imagine them being in a region with anyone other than BC, North Dakota and Alaska and there is no way they can put them in Fort Wayne. Well, make that no way the SHOULD put them in Fort Wayne.

There could be little drama in the locations since the 1-16 seeding seems to leave no need to move anyone around to avoid conference matchups or to place teams in regionals they host, at least as far as I know. I believe Minn hosts the west and I know Notre Dame hosts the midwest. Michigan seems to be bound for Worcester and a game against North Dakota.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    This has been one helluva run, and the unpredictable nature of it just makes it so much more sweet. The past two weekends have probably been the most fun in years.

    That is all for now, my body needs some rest
