    He's a Gopher fan and thinks the NCHC is overrated.

    Absolutely.

    I'm not worried about Yale, per se. There's just no "sexiness" to it. I've been interested in our opening round opponents generally to this point... Miami, Wisconsin, Mankato... I dunno.

    Trust me, I'm not terribly interested in Yale then possibly QU.
    Yale probably does not want to see UML either in the first round, going west has some advantage for Yale as they have not played anyone out there and may surprise. a team. Looking at Wodon's bracket, there are not a lot of other choices to make.

    I believe UND tie was as good as a win. UND sits at #3, but will jump either SCSU or Quinnipiac (or both) if either (or both) lose.
