    Sorry but that's wrong.

    According to the NCAA, Ferris does not have a winning percentage. If they were credited with a win, they would show up on the bottom of this list at .055. Since they don't have a win their win % is 0, and they do not appear.

    They actually do appear on the list, but as they rank #51 of 51 they are by themselves on page two at 0.079 win percentage. I have no idea where that percentage comes from as that is like one win in 13 games and Ferris shows as 1-17-1 on that webpage. There is a footnote on the page that it includes games through 2-18-21 so maybe the win percentage is through 2-18-21? Ferris is currently 1-20-1 which would be 0.0455 win percentage by my calculator and is very likely to finish the season at 1-22-1 (0.0417).

    After seeing FSU this season, Tech fans are feeling much better about our three consecutive seasons 2008-11 when the Huskies won 6, 5 and 4 games respectively. They seem like world beaters by comparison.

    The victory over Trine is officially an NCAA win. There's no such thing as an exhibition contest between two NCAA schools. That's the reason you only see exhibition games scheduled against Canadian schools and the U18 team.

    Anyone know the hockey budgets for the WCHA teams and where they rank? I heard Minnesota State has the highest and Lake State has the lowest. True?

    Unless Ferris wins a game this weekend, they will become the first D-1 school to not win a single game in a season since Brown went 0-20 in 1960-61.

    (The Bemidji shootout win counts as a tie, and the Trine win was an exhibition against a D-3 school)

    The last (and only) team from the West to go winless since the NCAA started sponsoring hockey was Michigan State, who went 0-14 in 1949-50.

    I have a hunch NMU will upset Bowling Green.

    As we head into the WCHA tourney, there's no consensus among Bowling Green, Bemidji, and Lake State as to who is the best WCHA team after Minnesota State.

    Humans
    USCHO: BGSU #13, BSU #15, LSSU #18
    USA: BGSU #13, LSSU #16, BSU #17
    CHN: BSU #13. No BGSU or LSSU.
    Buccigross: BGSU #13, LSSU #15. No BSU.
    Everything College Hockey: #15 BGSU, #16 LSSU, #19 BSU

    Computers
    PWR: #4 BGSU, #10 BSU, #12 LSSU
    Krach: #3 BSU, #5 LSSU, #7 BGSU
    RPI: #4 BGSU, #10 BSU, #12 LSSU

    Totally agree. He needs to polish things up substantially. It was a risk hiring him and hopefully, he can fulfill his promise. And to LH's point. When you represent a national level school and are essentially the face of that school to the rest of the world, you have a lot more responsibility and a much bigger microscope on you than just being the assistant somewhere.
    Having said that Dilks is over the line on his comments.
    I was being snarky and stating the obvious.

    This is just me, but I don't see Tech or any college hockey team as a "national" level team. This isn't a Tech problem, it is a hockey problem. Where it is popular, it is popular, but the majority of America couldn't care less.

    With that said, yes, Joe does need to represent Tech and Tech hockey better. His behavior is not becoming of Tech or a head coach of a D1 program.

    To be fair, Joe has seized multiple opportunities to make himself, and the STEM research school he represents, look bad since stepping up to the top job. He knows the game well, but there have been times where his unpolished style is clearly 30 years out of date. When he has occasionally popped off on topics not related to hockey his opinions are often ill-informed and clearly lean on a steady diet of Sunday church sermons and the Fox News prime time lineup. Plain and simple, the man is a Yooper.

    He has never claimed to be anything but a Yooper.

    I'm going to get on my soapbox now. LSSU deserves second place. they are a very good team and they have gotten steadily better as the year has gone by. It's not a mistake they are in second. They have great goaltending, imho the best goalie in the league, and they have scorers as well. I've seen where people are saying they are not deserving of a bid.
    I totally disagree with that. they may not be flashy but they definitely deserve a lot more respect than they are getting. That sweep at BG was not a fluke.

    Well it didn't take the very last game of the regular season to lock in all the seeds, but it did go all the way to the second to last game of the season. Playoffs are set for next weekend.
