    I had a feeling this was the case, too. But we can change their minds...

      It can’t be about money if it’s going to RF. To save money on one fight? Nope, can’t be. I’ll explain.

      It’s well known if they separated RF and GAC there would be most likely 2 flights pre-FF and 2 FF fights for a grand total of 4.

      Now say its going to RF with a GAC-RF QF and a Adrian/Elmira/Naz pod. That’s 3 paid flights for the FF with none before. 3 total.

      As you all know, this didn’t happen either, because they put Hamilton in the Adrian pod, who they HAVE to offer a flight if they want it. That makes 4. There is no financial benefit for doing it the way they did UNLESS…

      The FF goes to Plattsburgh. They won’t care about the top overall seed, because Plattsburgh is a great alternative site. They also protected this by separating a Cortland team who’s beat the Cards twice. There’s no logical sense why they did that other than protecting Plattsburgh as a potential host. (Don’t come at me with the conference games rule: that’s only for the first round).

      So in turn, this bracket was clearly set up for Plattsburgh to host. This bracket was put together to pay for 4 flights if it was at RF in the current setup they went with. If that’s the case, then why didn’t they just separate #1 and #3 to begin with? Because they WILL be saving a ton if/when it’s at Plattsburgh. I’m not saying buy your tickets now, but as long as Plattsburgh beats Midd. That looks like we’re headed there.

      NCAA will hope for a better financial setup next year when it goes west.
      Trying to stack the deck for Plattsburgh to host is a risk considering how they've been playing of late, and how Midd played in the NESCAC tourney...

        I don’t disagree, but I really am struggling to find any alternative reason for this. Also, Plattsburgh really controlled their previous games against Middlebury. Should’ve won them by much more.

          Would someone please remind me which year the NCAA is considering having a predetermined site for the D3 women's tournament?

          Was it next year or 2026?

          I ask because I found out that the women's tournament is getting pushed out a week (starting next year, they will follow the men's schedule -- first round on a Saturday after the end of the regular season (instead of Wednesday), quarterfinals the Saturday after that, and then the final four the weekend after that) and thus will correspond with the same weekend as the men.

          So, I have a thought. In 2026, the men are at Utica. I found a page on NCAA.org which lists out all the sports playoff schedules through 2030. The D3 men may now be on the same weekend (last weekend in March), but offset days. The men's semis are on Thursday, the women's semis are on Friday, the men's final on Saturday, and the women's final on Sunday.

          See where I'm going with this? With the Nexus Center now up and running, there will be plenty of ice available (even if all the games are in the Aud, but practices can be pushed to the Nexus Center), locker rooms, and other facilities. Sure Utica is a small city, but it is certainly large enough to have the hotel rooms necessary (after all, they are hosting the Women's Worlds this April). It's relatively easy to get to -- very drivable from almost anywhere in the northeast, and the Syracuse airport is 30 minutes away.

          I think it would be a great idea to have a D3 hockey "festival" on the same weekend at the same place. Anybody else with me? (2025, the men go to a campus site, so that's why I'm looking at 2026 as the first opportunity to pull this off.)

          (And b*tch*ng about what the brackets would look like in 2026 is not allowed for this discussion!)
          It’s been my dream to have the men’s and women’s hosted on the same weekend at the same venue for 15 years. Try it once, see how it works, if it’s flop, don’t have to do it again but I always thought it would be really cool with the amount of schools that could potentially get 2 teams to the FF year in and year out. That’s gotten a lot harder lately with the growth of the game, but still possible.

          unless something changed, last I knew the practices all had to take place on the same ice as the games. Maybe they’re loosened that language.

            Yeah, the Plattsburgh Men lost the right to host a quarterfinal in 2015 because the women were hosting the FF that weekend, and a proposal to have practices at a different facility was shot down. Of course, that was before the women’s FF dropped the 3rd place game and added a rest day between the semis and final, so maybe that wouldn’t happen now? But hosting both FFs would probably still have this problem.

              That's my biggest concern and right now the main obstacle I see. But like Cards_rule said, there is one less game (and thus two less teams after the first day) to worry about as well as the rest day. Plus, the schedules are now listed to be offset. Also, the practice ice would be just a few steps difference from their locker rooms, unlike what Plattsburgh was proposing. It's not logistically inconvenient in any way.

              I get why the practice ice has to be the same as game ice. But, if they are willing to relax the rules a bit, and have just one practice (minimum) be required on game ice, I think they can pull this off scheduling wise. I need to sit down and figure this out.

              But, the more I think about it, the more I am hellbent on getting this to happen. I do have a "bully pulpit" available to me in USCHO. I just may use it. Stay tuned...

                You'll get full support from me...One thing I would definitely try and talk about because i remember it being one of the biggest cons to it is the "championship experience" narrative. The women's committee has always been very cognizant of not letting the D3 women's hockey tournament be treated as the "side show" to combining with the d1 women or the d3 men.

                Maybe try and get some women's coaches who might agree with you (if they do) to speak to that.

                    I really think its is as simple as the committee needed to stay within the 500 mile guidelines for budget and decided to avoid intraconference before the semis because they could...and their PWR may vary from USCHO and the matchups may make more sense.

                      The conference rule does not apply to non-Round 1, so that's ridiculous. Also, Hamilton is OUTSIDE of 500, so I don't understand it.

                      • Danielle Blanchard is back on Plattsburgh's campus, as a University Police dispatcher...this is more puzzling to me than the bracket tbh.

                        Then again two different youth orgs are looking to expand girl's hockey in Plattsburgh/Clinton County, she may be back for one of those programs...

                        Duke hasn't done anything to deserve being replaced, but its hard to not want the dynamic duo back together...maybe have the 3 of them.

                        • MIAC awards are out today. Easily the most baffling selections of the bunch, McCoy (GAC goaltender) will for sure be a repeat All-American, maybe first team, yet she was not DPOY, but another goalie was selected instead. Baffling behavior from the MIAC. NCHA doesn't behave this way towards their dominant program. Some other notes: Saint Mary's has 3 All-Conference freshmen.... Chad Davis is gonna do it again, isn't he? Also, all-tournament team featured 4 goalies, which makes sense given the lack of scoring in the MIAC tournament this year haha.
