    No having to fret about who travels where, and how they'll mess with the Pairwise pairs to achieve it! They can leave the pairings alone, or make switches to avoid rematches or set up east-vs-west if they choose.
    YUP that's gonna be exciting

    Anyone have any knowledge as to whether Erie will allow fans?

    Well Said Grant! The welcome distraction of watching women's hockey has been awesome. All the Players and Programs and schools have made significant sacrifices and investments to let the girls play. With that being said it does not diminish the significance or effort it has taken for players and programs to function in this far from perfect world we live in. Great to have you back even under less than ideal forum conditions and functionality. How are those BC girls doing? I miss the updates.
    They're having a good year! Next year seems to be the next real shot at being a contender, but they are playing well enough to make noise and already know they can beat NU (although the Huskies are playing all-world right now). So, hey, who knows!

    I don't think this year would have less meaning if BC won it all this year. It would be special in its own way, in the sense that the players will have had to go through a whole lot to have earned it. It would be different, but not less good. Also, as a BC fan, beggars can't be choosers.

    PS This forum is still maddening to navigate, seriously.

    That and there's no way for it to just take you to your last viewed post within a thread.
    Once a topic thread is open, under the 'title' and right next to the "Post" button, there is a "Latest Activity" button (not well differentiated, as may be easy to miss) which will cause the whole comment thread to reload with 'latest' the first comment listed. (In case that's what you mean, and are not seeing it.)

    But then, no, no 'last viewed' indication of any kind; you just have to remember from your last time reading.

But it might be possible that because there has been reduced activity this year, hits are down, advertising revenue is down, so maybe the owners have opted for a reduced level of service. I don't know, but it seems like it is a possibility.

    Strange headline, lol. Are they saying multiple sports tourneys might all be played in Erie? Hockey was going to be there all along and some of us like Erie haha! I’m sad because I’ve been looking forward to attending this for years but won’t go afterall this year because of COVID. But that’s pandemic life of course. Hope the tourney can happen, even if without fans. Next year I will road trip to Penn State!

    edit: guess I should read closer. I understand now, 8 teams in one location.
    Your first reaction is nevertheless correct. That's one awkward & misleading headline.

    The actual news is that the Quarterfinals have been tentatively moved to Erie. The FF was "to potentially be played in Erie" back when the application to host was filed.

    To err is human. But the headline writer was working a bit too quickly in this case.

    So were down to 16 now? I will tweet at him and ask him to come back and at least comment.

    I think a more fitting ending to BC's season would be losing to the CHA champ in the title game. Should it be in triple OT or a 7-1 drubbing?

    When I wrote that, the very thought you typed was right there in my head hoping someone would hit the belt high fastball out of the park.
