    Can ESPN get any more Eastern-biased?????

    Every year it's the same old song and dance.

    Also, not happy that they put North Dakota and Denver in the same region. The committee would NEVER do that to beloved BC. J-O-K-E!!

    Here's to hoping Michigan or UNO will take out the primadonna's from BC before they get to St. Paul.

    GO SIOUX!!!!

    And not to mention that BC is in the region of death this year.

    First you sioux fans whine about how BC never gets sent out west, now they have so thats not an excuse anymore. Now your whining about how denver is in your region. Just let the teams play if you guys match up with BC in the end the best team will win, if I were ND i would want to play BC so we could beat one of the best.

    If your the best team in the nation it shouldn't matter who you play you should win right?

    First of all, ESPN does not make the selections. They just announce them. Second of all, Barry Melrose kept praising North Dakota over and over again (well deserved, even from this "eastern fan"). He said UND was going to win it all and said that Matt Frattin was the best player in NCAA.

    It's friggin' ESPN. What do you expect? I'm surprised they haven't fired Melrose (justifiably) and replaced him with another football analyst. They don't care about hockey, they've never cared about hockey, and the only reason you think there's an "eastern bias" in the research involves opening the newspaper or a website, and picking a school they've heard of before.

    Considering how BC has absolutely owned Nodak lately, I can see where you would be afraid of having to face them again and would be praying for someone to take them out before they get to the FF again...

    Stop it with the facts!!

    So I guess the answer is yes, ESPN could get more Eastern biased!

    Someone obviously expects ESPN to tread UND like John Madden treats Brett Fav-re. Duh.

    It's obviously a Penn State - Big Ten hockey conspiracy.

    In the words of Barry Melrose, "New Hampshire is going to have a lot of fans... you can practically walk from New Hampshire to Manchester"

    I don't know what you're talking about. ESPN basically kissed North Dakota's butt the whole time, and I don't know if we even got mentioned as the first round matchup.

    Considering how BC and North Dakota haven't played lately, I'm not sure your statement makes much sense. I don't think anyone on North Dakota's roster, nor anyone on BC's roster really cares who they play. At the end of the day, if there is a team you can't beat, you're not the best.

    Gack, no $%!T Batman. When I saw that bracket come up, I thought if BC survives it, they would already have won a frozen four.

    There is no eastern bias. The pairwise did work out nicely for New Hampshire, you have to say. Miami a #1 seed should not be too upset. Look at the KRACH. Denver would have been a #1.
    No more slow starts to the season; we got over that hurdle. Now, Get it on!!! GO UND!!!
