    Well, are you trying to pick which is the more interesting story or which teams you actually think will win?

    Either is OK (and I agree that picking the chalk is boring) but I went with the teams I actually think will win approach.

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

      Higher seeds are higher seeds for a reason, so I can always find some path to picking them to win. I'm not saying that anyone who picked one is wrong, just that there is another way to look at it where it may be more coin flip than slam dunk. Obviously, a team like Clarkson needs to have more of a "Knights beat Yale" effort, not the one that got them thrashed by Colgate. UMD is going to do what it does, so it will be up to Clarkson to determine how likely my nurses pick is.

        RIT is not a very good team (and that's putting it politely). I was at that game you mention. Yes, RIT played well that day, but SLU is a sixth place ECAC team which is under .500 overall, and RIT has a goalie (Sarah Coe) who can steal almost any game. It's not like RIT was the better team. They were outshot 43-26 and the time of possession was probably worse than that. Coe won that game for them.

        Still not impressed when I saw Penn State play RIT. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Penn State is a bad team or they don't belong there.) Ergo, I don't see what people see in them.

        [And to Lindsay, yes, I remember when Mercyhurst was one of the best in the country. I loved it (and not because I found out later on you played for them, LOL). I enjoy when the "small" conferences can produce a national power.]

          It's funny how the Quinniapiac vs tOSU game last year is given a bit of revisionist history when in reality Quinnipiac was overmatched in that game. Big time puck possesion advantage for tOSU. Large shot total disparity 77-22 over 3 periods and 2 OTs...In fact tOSU outshot Quinnpiac 20-2 in the 2 OT periods. Q goalie keeped them in that game plain and simple.
          At the outset, we could hang with the dude...

              And yet Q rang the pipe halfway through the first OT. Yes, it would have been a major upset, but they were literally an inch away from pulling it off.

                Quinny was 18-2 (losses were to Yale and Providence) before the Holiday break and 11-7 after the break including 2-4-0 to finish the season. I just do not have a lot of faith (unless it is for Clarkson of course) of a team that has lost 4 of its last 6 games going into the NC$$ Tourney. That is why I picked Penn State.

                  Good point. (Notice that’s me hedging my bet…. LOL)

                    And of coarse the old VicB Kiss of death. I always pick the loser.

                      The 12 people who picked the favorites in each contest were proven correct.

                        I usually don't predict either. At least as long as the Buckeyes are still alive. And yeah, it does annoy my friends.

                        Anyhow, count me in as part of the (at least) 26 of us.

                        And hey. Suppose we did start out with just 17 Disciples. With all of us sticking with it, doesn't it stand to reason that we'll slowly but surely gain more followers? (winking emoticon here)
