    Yale made the Frozen Four in 1952.

    They also have one of the longest histories of any team, having played in 3 centuries.

      As have the Gophers.

      It appears that Johns Hopkins University of Baltimore may have been the first college in the United States to play hockey, having tied the Baltimore Athletic Club at the dedication of the newly built North Avenue Rink in Baltimore on December 26, 1894. The University of Minnesota may have been the second college in the nation to play the game. Although students from Yale and other eastern colleges visited Canada during Christmas vacation of 1894, Yale did not play the game until January of 1896 when they met Johns Hopkins. Columbia started hockey competition during the winter on 1896, while Brown and Harvard continued to play ice-polo through the season of 1896-1897.

      Prior to meeting the Winnipeg Seven, the newly formed Minnesota team played three games against the Minneapolis Hockey Club, with the collegians winning two and losing one game.

      The game against Winnipeg was played at the Athletic Park in downtown Minneapolis, located at Sixth Street and First Avenue North, just north of the famous West Hotel. The park was located on the present site of the renowned Butler Square Building, next to the current Target Center Arena. The park was the home of the professional Minneapolis Millers Baseball Club until they moved to Nicollet Park at Nicollet Avenue and Lake Street on June 19, 1896. Athletic Park was opened in 1891. For those interested in baseball lore, Athletic Park measured 275 feet in left field, and 250 feet in right field. It was a home-run hitter’s delight.

          Brown lands at #29. The Bears have 4 NCAA Appearances, including three trips to the Frozen Four, and an appearance in the title game in 1951. Unfortunately for Brown, it has been nearly 20 years since their last NCAA Tournament. They've also struggled just to post a winning season, only producing 6 winning seasons in their last 30+ seasons. Without more success, expect Brown to fall into the bottom half of programs. For now, they are barely holding on, at #29.

          #29 Brown - 18.3317 Points
          #30 Ohio State - 17.0403 Points

              This is all a farce! We're going to get to #1 and find out UND has like 1,000,000 points or something!

              Actually, my guess is that UND is not going to be #1.

                I'm guessing they will be. They've been the most consistent historically and have 7 titles.

                    Northeastern comes in at #28. The Huskies have made four NCAA Tournament appearances, but only one of those appearances was as successful as their 1982 run to the Frozen Four. The Huskies had their best years in the 80s, winning 2 Conference Tournament titles (1 ECAC, 1 Hockey East), along with the 2 NCAA appearances. The Huskies have their work cut out for them however. They only have 5 20+ win seasons in their history, and only once in the last 10 years. If they don't start having more seasons like '08-'09 they will be falling. For now, they sit at #28.

                    #28 Northeastern - 24.5696 Points
                    #29 Brown - 18.3317 Points

                        It all depends on the weighting system. UND will certainly be one of the top teams but if titles are weighted really heavily it could tip the scales in favor of Michigan.

                          As everyone knows... there was a crisis, as Justin (MCHOCKEY) went AWOL 4 minutes into the first game... and thankfully he wandered his way to the meet and greet in one piece... listening to Mike (Warrior51) tell this story was *** hilarious...

                              True. But, I'm guessing that he weighted them in such a way that UND's consistency will win out in the end. It all depends. There's 3 or 4 teams that could win something like this all depending on how the numbers are calc'ed.

                                yeah, i think the top can only be one of three teams, the two with 7 and one with 9. bucky with 6, no, as being 3 behind in NC's must knock them out of the top 3
