    We got a kick watching people pack into the little Alary's bus this weekend. Packed to the gills, hard starts and stops. Good thing nobody on the bus had been drinking.

          IIRC, the first two trips (GR & A2) were under the old 12 team format, 1 west regional and 1 east regional. Both times SCSU was the higher seed (#2 in 01, #4 in 02) and got placed at the closest west site, with a bye in 00-01. Yeah, playing a team on its own ice (01-02) isn't "neutral". We know, playing UND in 05-06. Ask Denver in 01-02, Maine and CC in 02-03, too.
          Still, if they were the better team, as was clearly the case in 00-01, they should have won regardless.

          So, you got sent out east the last three times after that under the four regional setup, and was the favored higher seed twice and lost all three. So, yes, getting placed close to home will do wonders for having your fans there, but you still have to win. I guess that is better than being placed in Ft. Wayne with about 5000 Michigan fans. Then again, CC won in 04-05 in GR under the same circumstances.

          I think your team earned the spot in the west regional this year. Looked good in the WCHA playoffs in the parts of the games I watched.

I tip my hat to No Dak, but as the case has been for much of the season, the play was not matched by the officiating.
          I saw the play with Kristo, and frankly, if your defenseman just stands his ground and absorbs the hit, he draws a penalty. Instead he clocks him high in the facemask knocking him down and deserved the penalty. Carbon copy of some of the stupidity Michigan was guilty of this season. That was the turning point in the game, IMO. UND is playing really good, though, so who knows what would have happened.

            I know each athletic department gets allotted tickets in certain sections for each regional and for the FF. Does anyone know which sections each school will get for this one? It'd be good to know which section I want to sit by if I (somehow) find my way to the Twin Cities this weekend.

              Wow all this thread has been is talk about hotel and food. How about some hockey.

              What are the situations with injuries an/or suspensions?

              Vermont has two injured players. Wahs Stacey who has been 1-2 line forward has been out for several weeks with a lower body injury. Unsure of his status for the weekend but likely out, or at the least out of shape. Back-up goalie Mike Spillane is also out for the remainder of the season I believe. With the dismissal of another top line forward UVM is rather thin in the forwards dept. But otherwise healthy.

                  Wisconsin is healthy and Cody Golobef's suspension was for one game, so we have a full squad for Friday night. We're as deep as they come, all four lines can put points up on the board.

                    For SCSU Barta (D) is still out I think (lower body injury). Not a huge loss there though as he and Gaudet are pretty much interchangable.

                    Everyone is hoping Roe will back for Friday but I haven't heard/read anything concrete on his status. If he can't go that will be a big loss for SCSU.

                            Do any Badger fans know if there is going to be a bus package from Madison or Milwaukee to St. Paul? If so, how much does it cost?

                            Note: Yes, I am aware that I am the enemy, but it would not be the first time in this past week that I have been hanging out with the enemy. My family are unfortunately Sioux fans.

                              Olympic and Badger Women's Hockey coach Mark Johnson was last seen being escorted by a trio of Lumberjacks into a nondescript white van reportedly registered to an undisclosed Hayward, WI address last Thursday evening. This is a breaking story.

                                Is anyone else staying at the Holliday Inn? I just got my tickets (section 116) and cannot wait until Friday.

                                I should be close enough to yell at Eaves if he makes the stupid decision to play PJ instead of Podge.
