AIC wins 2-1. Mankato down 3-0 with 10 min left in the 2nd.

If Mankato loses here, do they drop to a #2 seed in the NCAAs? I think the committee would have to think long and hard about it.

Yikes. Is Mankato potentially fumbling away their one seed, and making us wait to see who goes east to a weaker regional between the U and uw?

Dumb question-- When do they vote for the awards? Is it after the regular season or after the conference tourneys? Knight and McKay put up a couple of clunkers this week, and wonder if that will have any affect on the Richter. Also, when do they vote on All Americans? I would hope Laffer is either on the 1st or 2nd west team, but McKay and Scheels are in the running as well.

Who would you move ahead of them? I could see them dropping to the overall #4, but with a 20-4-1 overall record, I'd think it's hard to drop them to the 2 bracket. Even though Wisconsin won the B1G due to the technicalities of how the regular season championship was decided (and let's be honest, going 3-1 against MN in the regular season) they lost a pair to ASU early in the year, plus a loss to PSU, so if MN and WisconSIN had both been bounced in the B1G semi-finals, I'm not at all sure that the committee would have had the BADgers in the #1 seed.

uw was covid depleted in the ASU series and the loss to OSU right after that. They didn't even have a full lineup. 16-4-1 since then with three of those losses to tourney teams.

I think especially this year in the smoke-filled room, it will be hard to get away from the following set of facts:
1. Wisconsin has been on fire since the new year
2. Mankato plays in a "bad conference". Wisconsin plays in a better conference.
3. Wisconsin went down 5-1 in their conference tournament and stormed back, almost winning. Mankato went down 5-0 in the semifinal to a worse team and lost 5-1.

I wouldn't be surprised by much of anything, but I would expect UW to be the #4 seed and Mankato to be the #5 seed at the moment.

I would be right with you on this... not convinced it'll happen, but I get the argument mostly on points 1 and 2... 3 is like a post script.

One thing that came out of the Hockey East emails is how the 'conference standings' might influence the NCAA committees. I mean if the B10 used point percentage instead of the win percentage formula they went with, then Minnesota is the regular season champ and tourney champ... so clear top team in B10. Now it's a debate because of how they league decided to do points. Also Bob Motzko is out $30k because they didn't win a regular season banner, so I'm sure he's frustrated.

I feel like if I would have brought that up in the availability it would have gone over great.

Given that Mankato has now lost as many games all season as WisconSIN has in 2021, I'm not convinced that the committee drops them that far. There's certainly a decent argument that the B1G is a better conference than WCHA right now, but winning the conference and having a 20-4-1 record vs WisconSIN's 20-9-1 record, it's going to be a very good question.

WisconSIN has gone 15-4-1 in 2021, Mankato 17-3 in that same period

By "gone over great" do you mean that Deutsch would have banned you from any further press contact with the staff? :mrgreen:

Personal opinion here... MSU just dropped to a 2 seed. Sitting at Pub 500 watching the game, they just looked "off". Passes were not connecting. Defenseman out of position. McKay was in his own head. Hopefully they got their bad game out of the way.

I'd agree. Honestly, msu's previous post season failures have "proven" everyone right that wcha is weak and that's the only reason we have piled up wins. It doesn't matter if it's reality or perception. When the committee has essentially given itself carte Blanche to do what they want, perceptions matter. I'm confident we will be a 2 seed. The only positive of that is we almost can't be matched up with Providence which may get in these guys heads more than it should.

They looked awful today. I said early in the first period that this looked like a step down from the nchc and big ten games early in the week. If we play like that next week, we will blown out of the arena again. I've thought the team has looked shaky since the Ferris series in mid-february, but their talent and defense held them afloat. I never like seeing my team getting blown out, but they needed to see they need to work hard and not just rely on talent.

Mankato and Wisconsin should be the 1 and 2 seeds in Loveland in which case all it decides is who they play in the first round.

Depending how the rest of the tourneys go UMD most likely will be a #4 seed now. MN most likely moved up to 2nd or 3rd overall in poll, so the only way they would face Nodak is in frozen four or the championship game. It will be interesting to see how the brackets turn out Sunday.

It doesn’t matter what seed you are, ya still gotta win 4 games! I believe tUMD will be a 3 seed in Loveland or Fargo.

Even if the committee looks at UW as "#2" in the B1G it wouldn't necessarily preclude them from still giving Sconny a #1 seed. Especially when circling back to items 1 and 2.

True you have to win 4 games, but UMD is a very tough draw as a 3 or 4 seed, since they are defending champs.
So if you earn a #1 seed and end up facing UMD the first game It's definitely a tough draw.

It doesn’t matter what seed you are, ya still gotta win 4 games! I believe tUMD will be a 3 seed in Loveland or Fargo.
I don't agree with this. The 2002 team lost 3 times to Denver that season. Luckily someone else knocked them out of the NCAA's so we didn't meet them again. It matters.

Well, the 2002 team didn’t win 4 games either 😉 While it helps to have a higher seed, you’ll still play a good team in the first round.

I don't pay as much attention to the pre-tournament seedings and matchups as most do here, so I have to ask: If UND and BC are seeded 1-2 do they not each deserve to face the "two cupcakes" (in whatever order) in the first round?

Gophers have higher winning percentage than BC with a tougher schedule, won conference championship and were a technicality away from winning regular season championship. We should be #2, there is not a real strong argument for BC to be #2. Also think Wisconsin should be last #1 seed over umass and Mankato.

Well with VCU withdrawing from the basketball tournament and their game against Oregon simply forfeited, it's pretty safe to assume that similar incidents in the hockey tournament will be handled the same way.

Not that there was ever any realistic chance for some kind of "standby" seed list in case someone withdraws before the games begin, but this pretty much wraps up the expectation that only 16 teams will be named Sunday.

Stop overthinking it. Whomever the Gophers face they will be favored against, but regardless you gotta play the games.

For as good as NMU looked Friday afternoon, they looked that bad for about two periods last night. A couple of NMU parents said that they played their best game of the year on Friday, it sure looked that way. Lake State played a good game and Mitens had a good glove in goal most of the night. LSSU could give a #1 seed a fit for a period maybe two but I don't see them taking down a #1.

NCAA had a Tuesday deadline for the basketball tournament, at which point no team could be replaced. I could see a similar deadline for hockey a couple days before the tournament starts.

NCAA had a Tuesday deadline for the basketball tournament, at which point no team could be replaced. I could see a similar deadline for hockey a couple days before the tournament starts.
If there will be, I wonder if there would be reseeding across regionals with that many days before the games begin or just reseeding within regionals like I had thought when I was toying with the idea a few weeks ago.

If Wisconsin-Madison is the state's most prestigious university and the state itself is known as The Dairy State, does that mean UW is Bovine University?

I think with SLU out, if BSU is in the field they are heading to Fargo for sure.

Go Beavers.

Do they really need a full hour for the selection show? It's just gonna be dragged out way too long.

The question will be if they just show the field and then have an hour to talk to coaches, etc about it or if they go region by region and we don't find out the last four teams until 6:45. That's where it will be just idiotic.

Starman needs the time to tout the NCHC and all the wonderful teams in it. Should make it into a drinking game every time he says Scotty Sandelin or how great the Whioux are. BTW, tBob will be on the show tonight.

You know he'd be good for at least one reference to the Trail Smoke Eaters.
