    As a Buckeye fan i would enjoy a trip to allentown much better than Fargo. Its 6 hour shorter drive and plenty more to do.

      If SCSU wins the Providence bracket is 4-5-12-13 and Manchester is 3-6-11-14

      If UMD wins, you're right. The pairings would flip.

      Also I switched Harvard and BGSU to avoid the WCHA matchup if SCSU wins.

        If the NCAA tournament is anything like tonight, this is going to be something special...
        Funny thing is, in the ECAC score contest, I religiously multiply the number of games by 5 goals scored. It is obviously the average number of goals scored in in all D-1 games.

            Along with ticapnews, I add this:

            No matter who wins, the question for the committee is going to be:
            Does Providence automatically go to Providence? And, probably, yes.
            Which #3 seed draws better at Allentown? Notre Dame, Cornell or Ohio State?

            The 2/3 matchups will be:
            Den/ASU in Fargo.
            QU/OSU
            NE/Cornell
            Clarkson/NoDame.

              even though Ohio State is going to be 9 you think they dont send them to Fargo? I hope your right i dont want that long drive

                No expert, because no one can read the committee's minds. But, when ASU is obviously a 'west' team, and is the #10 seed, and thus it doesn't require much adjustment, to put them in Fargo.....Coupled with Denver being their nearest opponent in the entire NCAA (barring CC). It's just hard to see anything besides a Den/ASU game in Fargo.

                  The committee should favor Ohio State. Both are technically flights. Attendance won't be much different between Notre Dame and Ohio State. Now, if you pair Clarkson and Notre Dame AND couple that with Quinnipiac moving to Providence then it becomes a more interesting notion. Regardless, the committee doesn't need to blow up the brackets. Keep a classic serpentine pattern as much as possible. If UMD wins, the only switch is (10) ASU and (9) OSU. If SCSU wins the only switches are that and the necessary (15) BGSU and (14) Harvard change.

                  NCHC going to a second overtime.

                    2 Clarkson

                    4 BGSU

                    Fargo
                    1 SCSU

                    St. Cloud wins:

                    Providence
                    1 UMD
                    2 Northeastern
                    3 Cornell
                    4 Providence

                    Manchester
                    1 UMass
                    2 Clarkson

                    3 ASU
                    4 AIC


                    I'm assuming Providence is going to Providence, and Ohio State and Arizona State flip for attendance reasons. The only other changes I had to make were to avoid inter-conference matchups.

                      I think recent history suggests reasonable effort to get people to the games. That's the reason we think PC stays in town, right?
                      the typical bracketing 8/9, 7/10, 6/11, 5/12 holds here except for ASU and OSU swapping. That makes the matchups:
                      QU/OSU
                      NU/Cornell
                      Clarkson/NoDame
                      As I said.

                      I don't know the eastern fan bases, so I can't predict what will happen here.
                      There are these facts:
                      Cornell is a 180 mile drive to Allentown.
                      Clarkson is also less than a 400 mile drive from Allentown. In fact, the mileages are 280, 360, and 340 to the 3 places. One would at least say that Clarkson/ND to Allentown is less inconvenient than other things.
