    QU? Maybe a 4th. Maybe nothing. Call UMD a 2. Then, Mich, LSSU and BU are all better than QU, easily. Bemdiji and Providence are also, if UMass wins tonight.
    I'll defer to you, who obviously has watched all of these teams extensively and a whole lot more than myself, as to whether Michigan, LSSU, and BU are all easily better than QU. Personally, I haven't watched QU play all season.

    That being said, I would be pretty surprised if QU didn't make the tournament based on their record/ECAC Regular Season title/status as an eastern team in a western-heavy year.

    Canisius up 2-1 halfway thru the game

    AIC's only other 2 non conf games were wins over Long Island.

    That might be even less impressive.
    Again, we just don't know how impressive those wins were. Traditionally, I would agree. This year? Who knows.

    I admit, not an easy situation to navigate. And I applaud the ECAC 4 for not being sheep and trying to play unlike the Ivies. I also realize that Clarkson bailed so late in the season that there wasn't much you could do. But I don't think that should mean QU is simply a lock. The committee should at least try to evaluate them against other teams. Hell, even BG who swept them. Seems fair to say that BG would probably have a similar record as QU if they played in the ECAC this year.

    Yea if Quinnipiac's resume for an NCAA bid looks like this, I'm not impressed. Pass.

    That's fair. The problem is, the NCAA had previously allowed a 4-team conference award its autobid to the conference tournament champion. Are you suggesting that once Clarkson called it quits, the ECAC autobid should have gone to QU?

    It's a weird, messed up year. I'm not sure there was a clear solution.

    I do think QU has now slipped to a #3 seed. So, is it Duluth or Michigan that gets bumped up to a #2?

    FWIW, QU played 9 non-conference games this season (not counting the ECAC "Tournament"), and went 7-2-0.

    Got swept by what most people would say was their most difficult NC opponent. They do have a couple wins against AIC. Almost a wash there i guess. The rest of those wins were against hot garbage.

    I'm more against the ECAC having a 3 team tournament for an autobid than i am Quinnipiac itself.

    Ha, ya, I didn't factor in the non conference component to that year.

    That reminds me. Is Scooby still around here somewhere?


    2010 - Bemidji was something like 11th in the PWR, and Huntsville won the CHA tourney. Some of their results:
    Split with Minnesota
    Sweep of UMD
    Win over Miami, T against OSU
    W, and T at No Mich
    W and T at W Mich
    Split at Omaha

    That's a pretty good team. To compare QU's results this year to that is nonsense. They earned their At Large through the PWR.

    QU this year? I haven't watched them. Don't know. But this result is far from impressive.
