I really don't know much about most of these teams, but I thought it would be cool to have a office pool of sorts on the tourney. See who can pick the most winners.

End of the Line

I am with Buzzsaw. Except the Sioux at home are too tough over the Gophers. I think the Sioux will find their way into the 4, but then stall out.

I just hope Minnesota and North Dakota play each other EXACTLY they way they played each other in the regular season, Minnesota owned them.... but now it really matters.

Prediction 1. Gophers Win it all.... grin.gif

Prediction 2.

I like the Gophers in a close one with Holy Cross they have some veterans with tourney experience I think it will be close and we will need a late goal to Win.

Gophers 5-4.....Knessel with late goal.

North Dakota 4-0....I think they will dominate this game.

Boston U. 6-1......they should handle the cornhuskers....

Miami 2-1 3ot's....Boston C is not that great coin flip.

Wisconsin 3-0....if they don't choke it's a win.

Maine 4-3 3 ot's ...Harvard scores late to tie.

Cornel 5-2 .......how did CC get in this?????

MSU 3-2 .....they will survive a late scare..

North Dakota 5-3 Got a bad feeling on this one..GOALTENDING

Boston U 4-2 To strong for the overated Ohiouns!

Cornel 2-1 .....just kinda hoping on this one....

Maine 4-1 ...MSU is overated in my opinion... grin.gif

My prediction...

As I sit in the Ralph tonight watching the games, I expect the Gophers to win big in the early game, and I expect a really good game between ND and Michigan. No matter who wins that one, I expect a very good game on Saturday night.

I hope the Gophers win, but I have this feeling that ND in their home arena is gonna be tough to beat...

Gophers beat Bucky for the title.

I hate that I haven't picked any upsets except for a couple #3's beating #2's which I hardly consider an upset. I went through game by game though and didn't take what seed they are into account and that's how it turned out. The east regional was by far the hardest for me to decide because I really think any of those four teams could emerge. Yeah, the Gophers sucked last weekend but the Holy Cross draw is great for them since I think they are the weakest team in the tournament. (I think BSU will be tough and I would love to see them upset WI even though it would throw my whole bracket off). The Gophers shouldn't have too much of a problem as long as they come to play and I think that will help get confidence back in the whole team. I could see Michigan pulling the upset but it will probably be UND and #16 and #19 should be more fired up than they have ever been to be playing back in their home state, especially since it may be their last game there if they go pro. The boos after stepping onto the ice from the Sioux fans should also get the maroon and gold fired up. As long as the Gophers come to play they will take home another title.

All in all it really doesn't matter who wins...I'm just excited to watch the best hockey of the year.

Thats the final 4 buzzy.

Actually unlike Red who gave up on the SUE earlier in the year I knew they were young and could peak at the end like a recent Gopher National Championship team did.

Don't get me wrong I hope they lose but there are team that concerns me.

Yes I was drinking like fish last night and could barely keep my eye's open when predicting... grin.gif

I'm sticking with my first prediction though... grin.gif

Nice effort! Talk about a classic case of peaking at the right time! I started watching the ND/Mich game and both those teams would have squashed us!

      The article "The skinny on bulls" is spot on! I am going to briefly add a couple points that may help understand this bite. First, the north end/side is better than the rest of the lake, If all other conditions are equal. Second, muddy bottom is king, and I think I can explain why and exactly what to look for. Once the edges of the lake melt away the connecting ice and the snow has melted away the ice will typically rise/float up. The pencil reeds are mentioned as being prime structure but they actually provide very little cover under the ice. What they do provide is bugs that get dislodged when the reeds are pulled up with the floating sheet of ice and the rootball pulls out of the mud. Those bugs/invertabrates then rise to the bottom of the ice, providing an easy meal for panfish. When I am fishing this pattern I drill holes all over the emergent reed patch with my 10" blade. This will provide a nice "window" and will they rarely freeze up this time of year, in fact some will probably get larger as warm surface water goes through them. Then you won't need anything but a rod to fish the next day. I will generally hop from hole to hole dropping my presentation just a foot or maybe two under the ice, give it a few shakes while watching for incoming fish and after a minute or usually less, I move to the next hole and repeat. Man, have I caught some nice fish with this pattern!! I generally leave the vexilar, portable and auger at home once holes are drilled. Things that I do bring are a rod or two with 6-8 pound test, Waxworms or gulp, a bucket and a 14'-16' 2x12 plank to get out to the walkable ice. If you haven't read the article on the home page yet, you should, since this is just an added supplement to that well timed article. Stay safe and good luck. Keeping the 8"-9" gills and 10"-12" crappie to eat and the larger ones to spread the superior genetics will result in larger fish each year. See you out there!😉🎣

      16 foot Lowe Roughneck modified V hull for sale. Bought new in 2016. Has the optional floor and casting deck installed as well as a gun box. Powered by a 25hp Mercury fourstroke on the back and a 55lb Minnkota powerdrive bow mount trolling motor. Only reason I’m looking to sell it is because I’m upgrading to a larger full time fishing boat. This boat has been used primarily fishing but has seen time both duck hunting and bowfishing. Asking $8500 or best offer. Email to jaketa[email protected] works best for starting the conversation.

      yea, but I think I've heard that somewhere here before!!!!!!!!!

      There is a crust cret jigs but the side by side was moving around well. The access is getting soft Baxter would be easier on and off. I think you come in from the west side of blue so you would be ok. The ice was around 24-30 inches
