    50/50 shot for all NESCAC final now. I'm an Amherst fan for the rest of this season.

    Trinity gets it done last night and will host Plattsburgh next week because of a scheduling quirk involving the women's Plattsburgh team. This is a break for the Bantams for sure although the Plattsburgh fan base travels well. Norwich and Amherst is now set after the Cadets get by Plymouth State. The Lord Jeffs will host, but the Amherst fan base has been traditionally lukewarm despite the team's success over the past several years, so they could get drowned out by the travelling Norwich faithful. Let's see if both NESCAC reps can advance before serious speculation of an all NESCAC final could take place. Big boy hockey time now.

    That's a great point, and Amherst and Trinity are poised to do well in the tournament. It would be great for NESCAC for them to meet in the final!

    Amherst guts out a win vs. Williams to get the bye in the NCAA tournament and appear to be headed on a collision course with Norwich in the quarters. Trinity will have to play an extra game, but they are in, and I think rightly so. Williams winning yesterday could have made a royal mess of things for the Bantams. Amherst goalie continues to raise eyebrows. Kid won't quit and still waiting for him to have an off game. The NESCAC teams should represent the conference with honor. Too much to ask for an all NESCAC final? That would be sweet indeed.

    The key is Hobart.
    We will never know what the final rankings will be, especially if Williams wins ! Hobart has their hands full right now in OT !

    I doubt it will happen now...one of the C's will probably go to Oswego and another to a western team.

    Have 3 NESCAC teams ever advanced to the NCAA tournament before? New territory for the smart guy conference?

    Amherst and Williams advance to the final. Two close games and well played. I believe my question regarding Trinity is still valid. If the Ephs break through for their first NESCAC title in a close 3-2 type of game, how can Amherst not advance to the NCAA's over the Bantams. Unless, of course, the NCAA tournament has 3 NESCAC teams in the mix. Williams has to win outright to make it. Not sure Amherst does. Trinity needs the Lord Jeffs to win to get them a pool C consideration which they should get over Williams. Otherwise, I think they are sitting on the sidelines the second consecutive year. No?
    No. If Williams => 3 NESCAC based on the last public ranking.

    Wow, Tufts gets the upset special over #1 Trinity yesterday. Amherst will now host and has the path to the title with the Bantams on the sidelines. The issue now for Trinity is they need the Lord Jeffs to win out to have a shot at an at large bid to the NCAA tournament. If Amherst gets to the NESCAC final and loses, how then can Trinity be judged ahead of Amherst for an at-large bid?

    Amherst gets the gift with Trinity losing to Tufts and will now host the conference finals series. The title is theirs to lose against the upstart Jumbos and whomever comes thereafter. Williams and Conn College is an evenly match game, but it remains to be seen how the Camels will handle the pressure of being in the semi-final spotlight. This is uncharted territory for Conn. The Ephs would dearly like to get the finals and knock off their hated rival Lord Jeffs. Would love to see a Camel / Jumbo final, but cooler heads will prevail. More than likely it will be purple and gold vs purple and white. Amherst has it going and will take the final.
