    Mankato 24 GP, 62, 74, 1-2 (home ice in first and second round)
    Bemidji 24 GP, 57, 69, 1-2 (home ice in first and second round)

    Remaining Schedules
    Mankato: UAH, at BSU
    BSU: at UAA, Mankato
    I was thinking last night... how interesting/weird/cool would it be for MSU / BSU to end the regular season tied in points since they play each other the final weekend? Two teams awarded the MacNaughton Cup at the same game as co-champs... What a group photo opportunity.

    yeah, I feel alot better about MTU's trip to Bemidji after what BSU has done the last 12 games...

    I will not root for Bemidji. I rooted for them once in the postseason. That's enough for my lifetime.

    I will be rooting for them as well.

    unless they completely implode, BSU could be playing for an at-large bid...plenty of value there if they keep winning. They're up to 12 right now...

    I am surprised by this, but very happy as well! Tomorrow night will be a new game and the Beavers need it to get closer to the Mavs. I want that last weekend to mean something in Bemidji.

    I have to say that Alaska and Bemidji surprised me being as good as they are. Honestly, the whole league is better than last year in terms of quality of play.

    Being a BSU fan, I am pleasantly surprised by them this year. At the beginning of the year, I felt they were a year away. But, the freshmen and sophomores have really stepped up (five of the top 10, six of the top 12 scorers). All without junior Brendan Harris, who was to be a key contributor this year.

    Now, if they could have only won a game or two in the non-conference portion of their schedule.

    I'd have to say Alaska competing for home ice, Bowling Green struggling, Tech not being in the top 4 either. I was expecting Mankato, BGSU, NMU, and Tech, not Mankato, Bemidji, NMU, and UA (blank).

    I never get predictions right, so I'm taking some time to brag this year. From my preseason forecast on this thread: "Surprise team this year - UAF. I liked some of their youngsters last year (particularly the Jandrics) and goaltending should be a real strength. The new coach at BGSU is sort of a wildcard."

    I didn't rank the teams, so "Surprise" is a vague term. Nevertheless, I'm taking credit for nailing Alaska and BGSU! As far as what surprises me, I thought NMU would be good as a team, but I'm really surprised at the scoring improvement from Loughran and DeMey. With several games left to play, they've already topped last year's totals by 17 and 18 points, respectively.
