    So did North Dakota have positive cases but still playing?
    No. McMahon retracted.

      Counting that 2006 field, there have been 56 number one seeds in a region (4 per tournament). 23 of them lost to the #4 seeded team in their first game, that's more than 41% of them. The 2005 tournament was the last one where all the #1 seeds won their opening game of the tournament.

      Really interesting stuff. Definitely shows anything can happen in the first round, particularly as of late. And I hate that my school has been a part of so many of those on the bad side in the last ten years.

      Happy to be a two seed, I guess.

          I don't blame ND but I will wait for my scolding.

            Yeah, not sure what the NCAA was thinking with that scheduling. When when was the last time a D-I hockey team was expected to play a second game roughly 24 hours after their previous game? That hasn't happened since... umm, let's see... last weekend. Checking some historical schedules, it has also happened from time to time in the past as well. It looks like every weekend of D-I hockey for the last several decades had a similar schedule for games.

              you do understand that one team dropped out right? So instead of making a team do a quick turnaround it made the right call to move the game to an earlier time so the team playing TWO games gets a few more hours or rest vs a team playing ONE game.

              let me clarify this because you aren’t comprehending. You described two teams playing each other twice with the same rest vs a team playing one game and another team playing two games within 20 hours. Want me to slow down so you can see the difference?

              one team = plays one game
              other team = plays two games in 20 hours.

              • So like the old 12 team format then

                • I believe back when one game played Thursday night, and the other game was Friday, and then the winners played on Saturday, the Thursday team had massive winning percentage edge. If BC doesn't win, I would consider it the biggest upset ever.

                  The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

                        Yep, I get what the difference is. It just doesn't matter. If a team can't win two games on back to back nights they're not Championship material, and a team that can't do that isn't in the tourney anyway. I don't think either SCSU or BU is complaining about the possibility of having to play a second game in 24 hours. In fact, I would be willing to bet they would be thrilled to do so because it means:
                        1. They won their game the night before and they are moving on
                        2. Their first game is as close to their normal game day routine as possible
                        Playing a game in the middle of the afternoon throws off the schedule of the normal game day meals, pregame skate, meetings, stretching, warm-ups, etc. I would put money on the fact that neither of those teams wanted their Friday game moved up to earlier in the same day. All of this is water under the bridge anyway because they've already moved the BU/SCSU game up to the 1pm time slot for broadcast reasons. Call BC Cake-eaters if you like (it wouldn't be the first time), but they simply got a lucky break. If you have a complaint with BC getting too much rest, look at their regular season where they only played 23 games and only 9 of which were on the road. I wouldn't exactly call their road schedule tough. Every "road trip" was out and back the same day and they didn't even play at Maine.

                              The fact that BC could benefit is going to make for some amazing reading. Schlossman is going to have a heart attack.
                              Do those of us doing the bracket challenge who picked BC get the point for them advancing?

                                This tourney should have been bubbled.
