Just thought I would gripe a little here. Looking out the window at school and we are getting dumped on. On a bright note we are getting out early, so I will have time to spend in my rod building/ tackle shop. When will it end??? I need to get on some soft water and soon!!!

We got some snow down this way, but it all melted when it hit the ground. We have open water down here as well, and if the forecast is right it is supposed to be 50degrees on friday. So I might just have to get the boat out for the first time this year!! I don't have to go into school on friday because of my schedule, so I might just have to hit the lake! Summer really can't get here fast enough, even though I stay really busy with baseball down here during the summer I still make sure to get on the water whenever possible!

Bemidji State-Cornell Highlights | Interactive Bracket

Courtesy of Western Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Tyler Scoefield netted to goals to propel Bemidji State over Cornell 4-1 Sunday night at Van Andel arena to advance to its first ever appearance at the Frozen Four, becoming the first ever No. 16 seeded team in NCAA history to do so.

BSU goalie Matt Dalton stopped 60 of 62 shots on the weekend, earning a .970 save percentage and a spot on the Midwest Regional All-Tournament team. Scofeild's four goals and two assists were enough to earn him Most Valuable Player honors.

Cornell was first on the board at 12:25 of the second period. Keir Ross got a quick shot off a lucky bounce from Tyler Mugford's faceoff win. Ross's shot was redirected by Sean Collins and past Dalton to give the Big Red a 1-0 lead.

The Beavers answered just two minutes later at the 14:25 mark when Ryan Adams netted his first goal of the season. Scofield was able to gain control and push the puck back to Adams at the right point. Adams let loose a wrist shot that sailed through heavy traffic in front of Cornell goaltender Ben Scrivens and into the net. Scofield picked up the assist for his third point of the weekend.

Scofield put the Beavers ahead 2-1 at 4:05 of the third period. The BSU breakout started with Kyle Hardwick bumping the puck to Matt Read at the Bemidji State half-boards. Read connected with Scofield on a cross-ice pass on a 3-on-2 rush.

Scofield broke down the right wing and fired a quick wrist shot past Scrivens for his third goal of the tournament.

Bemidji State extended their lead to two with a goal courtesy of Matt Francis at 9:30 of the third period. After winning a battle on the right half-boards, Ben Kinne drove just below the goal line and flipped the puck to Scrivens' left. Francis fired home the loose puck with a Cornell defender in close proximity. Scofield's hot shooting continued as he got his second of the night and fourth of the weekend with an empty-net goal at 16:37. Fighting off a furious Cornell attack, Graham McManam nudged the puck up to Read. Read flicked it into the neutral zone to Scofield, who fired a wrist shot from just inside the red line into the open net.

In a scoreless first period Cornell had three power play opportunities and created some quality scoring chances, but thanks to an aggressive Bemidji penalty killing unit, was only able to come away with five shots on net. Cornell outshot the Beavers 26-21 overall.

Bemidji State made its third appearance in the Division I NCAA Tournament since 2000. Prior to earning DI classification, the team earned 13 NCAA Division II and III tournament berths in a 16-year span from 1983-98 and captured six national championships. The Beaver's win on Saturday in the Midwest Regional Semifinals marked just the second time a CHA team has won in the NCAA Tournament. Niagara was the first team to do so when they beat UNH in 2000.

Cornell returned to the NCAA Tournament for the 17th time in school history and the first time since 2000 after gaining an at-large selection.

Bemidji State now advances to face Miami on Thursday, April 9, at the semifinals of the Frozen Four in Washington D.C. Time of the puck drop remains to be determined.

    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?    
    • The "if you were watching the story" was referring to the actions of VW.   Your link about mercedes was full of weasel words and little actual hard information.     And from the link you posted...   Seems like no evidence they did anything wrong has surfaced yet.   Maybe, maybe not.   So, what facts are you referring to?   And are you disputing the stuff about BMW and VW as well?     Oh, and from wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_emissions_scandal    
    • Repairs and fixes for 2.0-liter Volkswagen and Audi TDI models:   There are three generations of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder, and all will require different fixes (from simple software updates to complete, and potentially performance-crippling, hardware retrofits). As of January 6, 2017, Volkswagen announced a complete fix for 2015 TDI models with the third-generation engine. This will involve installing a second NOx sensor and a new or replacement diesel-oxidation catalyst. In March 2017, VW received approval to sell these cars, of which there are approximately 12,000 new and 67,000 used. On May 19, 2017, VW received approval to repair 2012–2014 Passat TDI models. A total of 84,391 cars are included, except those with manual transmissions; CARB said VW had not shown sufficient evidence that they will be made compliant. VW is awaiting approval to resell these vehicles as used cars. Buybacks and compensation for 3.0-liter Volkswagen and Audi TDI and Porsche diesel models:

      As of December 21, 2016, Volkswagen reached a second settlement with the roughly 78,000 owners and lessees of 3.0-liter diesel models. In late January 2017, Volkswagen announced a $1.2 billion program that differs substantially from the $10 billion program for 2.0-liter diesel models. Judge Breyer approved the final settlement amount on May 11, 2017. Currently, only owners of 2009–2012 Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touareg models with the Generation 1 engine are eligible for buybacks between $24,755 to $57,157. This is because Volkswagen cannot repair them to be emissions compliant. Generation 1 lessees of 2012 vehicles can receive between $5001 and $6615 for terminating their leases early. Generation 1 owners who do not sell their cars back to Volkswagen can receive $7755 to $13,880. For complete details, see the court’s handy executive summary. For Generation 2 models between 2013–2016, Volkswagen will offer cash compensation ranging from $7039 to $16,114; if the recall isn’t made “timely available,” the automaker will buy them back for prices between $43,153 to $99,862 and extend any warranties that might expire until the recall is ready. Generation 2 lessees can receive between $5677 and $12,492 for terminating their leases early. If lessees decide to keep their cars and perform the fix, they each receive a flat $2000. In all cases with Generation 2 cars, owners and lessees can opt to receive half of the cash payments up front and the other half once the vehicle is repaired. Generation 2 owners and lessees are also eligible to receive up to $1500 each as part of a separate $327.5 million settlement with Bosch, the supplier of the emissions software. Details are available here. These prices have been set using NADA Used Car Guide Clean Retail values as of November 2015 and adjusted for options, mileage, and the region the vehicle was registered in as of that month. The 2016 diesel models will be repurchased at 12.9 percent above prices for equivalent 2015 models. Owners and lessees will also be reimbursed for state and local taxes. The registration deadline is December 31, 2019. Owners and lessees will get the same payment (adjusted for mileage) regardless of when they register. Repairs and fixes for 3.0-liter Volkswagen and Audi TDI and Porsche diesel models:   There are two versions of the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 that require different modifications. The Generation 1 engines in the 2009–2012 Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touareg cannot be made fully compliant with EPA regulations. Generation 2 engines in 2013–2016 models can be fixed under a formal recall that must be approved by the EPA and CARB no later than December 20, 2017, or else Volkswagen must pay owners an additional penalty. On those 58,000 models, Audi said on November 23, 2015, that it would update the software and “resubmit” its emissions applications after the EPA found undocumented “auxiliary emission control devices” that were allowing excessive levels of NOx.
    • I would guess it is going to create more pollution rounding up, transporting, scrapping and reclaiming those cars than the excess they would have emitted in their lifespan vs the cars that replace them. 
    • So, first you tell me " if you were watching the story closely" then when I posted a link supporting what I said to be fact, your response was that your memory is bad and you were making a hypothesis. Classic. 
    • they will all probably end up scrapped then. you can probably expect the junkyards to soon be filled with Volkswagens that will be missing the ECU, DPF, and have holes in their engines.   cash for clunkers 2.0?
    •     This is very earth friendly, and good tree huggers and bureaucrats everywhere love it...
    • I would like to get some recipes to inject a turkey breast, and appx. how long does it take to smoke it? And whats a good wood to use ?
    • Could be that others cheated also.   I was relying on memory about the BMW connection and hypothesized that Mercedes would also have been a possibility.   I did say "maybe mercedes".     In any case, VW cheated on emissions for many years with the assent of the highest levels of management.     Apparently making a small diesel that runs ok and doesn't make too much pollution at an acceptable cost is really hard.
