        Its a BS argument.
        The tourney needed to be bubbled...if your original location can't do it...you find another...you don't wait or need an offer.
        But even if they had bubbled, Neither Michigan nor Notre Dame were infected in Fargo and Albany. The results to the tournament would have been the same. ND would not have been allowed in and Michigan would have been kicked out this afternoon.
        I don't know how the bubble would have worked, though. The sports that bubbled last year (NHL, NBA) required a certain amount of isolation time before the games and practices started. This would not have been possible with the conference championships just ending 5 days ago.
        I know the basketball tournament did a bubble in Indy with a similar timing situation. The way the winter sports season has gone, I think they got really really lucky that only 1 team had an issue coming in. Now that the remaining 16 teams have been in Indy for a week and a half, the bubble concept should be helping prevent any further disturbances.
        If hockey followed that plan, the bubble would only really protect the frozen four teams, not really the other 12.
        Can't we all just get along?
        Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

          I think it could have been done if they'd actually planned for it during the season. Move the tourney back a week from the conference tourneys and bubble it. If there are no or minimal fans...you don't need a massive NHL arena or city to do it in.
          if the NCHC could bubble in Omaha...the NCAA could have bubbled this tourney and had contingency plans for teams if they got ill.

                • I'd be ****ed if I was a UMD fan. If they go on to win it all there will be a huge * in the books.
                  It will not be a legit NC or three-peat.

                      The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                          Yes it will. If they win...they played under the conditions put forth...there is nothing illegitimate about it.

                              • This could be the worst performance from a #1 seed since BC lost to CC in 2011. At least that team had national titles in 2010 and 2012. Wisconsin hasn't won a tournament game since 2010.
