    I think everybody had Tech steamrolling over UAA this weekend. Boy we were all wrong. I guess the Seawolves aren't as terrible as everyone says.

        Just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

          Or Tech is not that good. I also noticed that Mankato did great vs Minnesota on friday, ( who plays a similar style to Tech) but things changed on saturday. Seems like a systems sort of thing, or was minnesota just executing better.?

            I spared Tech fans an analysis of how hard it will be to pass Bemidji at this point (note: still really hard). Somehow I contained my frustration with UAH.

              They took Bemidji to OT also. I just hope they don't figure out they do have talent until after we finish our second series up there.

                Game 2 was a good game, until it wasn't. UAH threw in the towel after the ENG making the final score much uglier than it should have been. Guerriero was left hung out to dry.

                      Part two of my Recruiting Ground series is out today, this time I discuss the BCHL. A league many of us are familiar with since almost every D1 team has a player from the BCHL on their roster:

                          I completely agree with this, while they are bad, on any given night, Mantha gives them a great chance to steal some points.

                              Interesting tidbit out of Bemidji. The game between Princeton and the Beavers has a female referee. I think that is the first female referee for a Beaver men's game!

                                I realize that each game impacts future predictions. But I am curious as to how many games have ended with a result that was less than a 50% probability. I'd look but then it would appear I understand your methodology.

                                And as an aside, I despise the Seawolves. But according to BG announcers, every time a Falcon hit the the the ice they were brought down without a call. And every time a Seawolve hit the ice they slipped or fell. I admit that the Seawolves suck and can't skate, but that's beside the point, give me a break. BG announcers are a bunch of homers. It gags me me to give the Seawolves a compliment, even back-handed.
