    So they tried to boost attendance this year.
    attendance at the Joe was just over 17K for saturday and less than 10K for friday............HE was about 12K for each night thanks to Maine

    UNH to Albany.
    Michigan to Fort Wayne
    NMU to St. Paul


    honestly.. Worcester is shaping up to be a minny Frozen Four- only without the shinny Trophy!
    Should have charged a consulting fee for this dandy last night! They made each move!

    Attendance was way down...the championship had 16k announced according to the Star Tribune and reports were the Friday Night Semi-final was near 14k announced.

    Problem is that would have changed the entire HEA playoffs.

    That would have given UVM 29 pts and the #3 home ice seed. UNH would have fallen to 34 pts and the #2 seed. MC would have fallen to 24 pts, tied with Northeastern, and out of the HEA tourney on the H2H tiebreaker with the Huskies.

    This would have made the tourney:

    8 NU @ 1 BC
    7 UMA @ 2 UNH
    6 UML @ 3 UVM
    5 UMO @ 4 BU

    That might have changed things a bit. UVM didn't fare so well against Lowell. UNH did well against UMass, although the latter were playing well at the end. Maine at BU instead of hosting? NU playing well at the end?

    The Joe looked a lot better from an attendance aspect last night as the place was crawling with Michigan fans who made a bit of a last minute decision to come out. I don't know about ticket sales at the other regionals but I do know for a fact that they were seriously lagging at the Notre Dame hosted Fort Wayne Midwest regional. Perhaps the committee remembered a Notre Dame 'home" game at Allen County that had 5000 or so Michigan fans a few years back and couldn't resist helping a little. I have to say I am really surprised at this. I've posted, NMU27 posted it just a bit ago, others who follow the bracketology far more closely than me have posted it, the committee hadn't really been doing this much engineering for crowd reasons in recent seasons and still claim their first concern is integrity of seeding. I just wonder if they are really hoping a hot Michigan team can somehow get to Detroit and that isn't their real concern, even moreso than empty seats in Fort Wayne that only people with ESPNU will see, and not the 100s of thousands who may tune in on April 10th.

    All #3 seeds are a 'band' though, right? Them being switched isn't too big of a surprise.
    I don't know if anyone ever gets the prognostications totally by the committee's picks. I did come close, but I really didn't think the committee would screw over Yale like that.

    And tied at 11th (a few of them at least) in the pwr.

    In a nutshell:
    All the committee did was move the number 3 seeds around for attendance. The 1 vs. 4 matchups stayed the same and the potential for 1-8,2-7,3-6 and 4-5 is intact. Well done.
