North Dakota and Wisconsin will sweep.

UMD's problem is youth to many freshem makes it difficult in the best conference in the country.

well UND has 9 freshmen dressing most games but has 11 total. so they are pretty young and do ok in the toughest conference in the country.

Wow, nice prediction of the Sioux, Pierre. I was ready to throw them under the truck, so to speak. CC is about as predictable as UND is this year.

Wouldn't it be nice to have Minnesota the number #1 seed at the Grand Forks, North Dakota regional. Oh by the way, the Sioux probably at a #3 seed.

The Gophers have handled the sioux this year but to play them in Grand Forks has to have Uncle Donnie running his hands through his pretty hair. What a cake eater Uncle Donnie has turned out to be. grin.gifgrin.gif

Right now the Sioux are way out of the NCAA picture thanks to there great performance last week against SCSU. They nee dto pretty much win out and hope SCSU and some other teams falter, although I'd love the chance to beat up the Sioux again in ND. grin.gif

whoa, they updated it overnight on USCHO and you are correct, they are an 11 seed which means not much room for error.

I guess a loss tonight and I could be right again huh?

P.S. I got that info from USCHO: It went like this: Final Word

How's this for a PairWise twist: At No. 12, St. Cloud State is in much better shape than North Dakota (18th) or Denver (20th).

So there you go buddy!

You can find it at the bottom of this link.

Big difference in the Freshmen class's as far as talent experience age go....

I would say ND is doing less then OK in the Conference especially for a team which arguably has the 2nd or 3rd best College Hockey program in the Country. grin.gif

I wouldnt say 2nd or 3rd best college hockey program in the country but I'll leave it at that. I like UND and the Gophs and both will make it to the playoffs.

Hey Sum34 ol' buddy ol pal, I figure with your first response in the hockey forum either you don't pay attention to the changes that take place in the pairwise or your an angry Sioux fan... both would make sense. Heres your latest peek from USCHO that has the Sioux out after last nights loss to CC.

What can I say guys? A little luck, but I thought this weekend had some easy series to pick. Somehow, the 'Dogs rallied on Saturday.

PS=Judging from some of the replies here, I think I'd like to see the Gophers and the Sioux in the playoffs. It would certainly make the threads exciting.

Buzzy,

I know it’s way too early to consider which teams will be in the tourney much less which bracket they would be in, but based on the latest USCHO bracket I have a crazy prediction. Another all WCHA final Four!

Midwest Regional: Wisconsin even if they didn’t have their goalie back.

East Regional: CC should take this one. Ohio State has potential but they have underachieved this year. I think Cornell is almost as over-rated as Miami.

West Regional: I would have to go with Minnesota on this one. Michigan is always tough at tourney time (Great Coach) and Harvard is another team that could surprise a few people. Holly Cross… well… it’s Holly Cross.

Northeast Regional: Let the ribbing begin… I would take St. Cloud! Motzko has them playing great right now and their goaltending has been good all year. Miami is over-rated. Nebraska is still Nebraska. The toughest test is BU and they have been up and down all year. Hopefully St. Cloud would catch them on a down.

Like I said, it’s still too early but it’s fun to guess. I still think that No. Dakota and Denver will find a way to make it in before this is all over. At least one of them will be there. I also think SCSU will move up the ranks before it’s all over. Especially if they can take two or three points from Wisconsin and CC. This weekend will be a big test for them against CC.

We will have to post the updated weekly NCAA "possible" pairings so we can talk about the match ups. I think based on the way the teams are playing now that it will be Minnesota and Wisconsin in the finals unless they are on the same side of the brackets.... that would be unfortunate.
