will there be any games on other channels besides epsnu and I dont have that channel, and wont stay up late to watch it when I can just find scores online...

Not sure if the local Fox Channels will carry any of the games but I doubt it with the money ESPN payed for the TV rights.

I'll check to see if there will be any online streaming of games but even those links are pay site's now a days.

Computer does it.

Remember that the PairWise works by comparing teams against one another, one pair at a time (hence the name), in four statistical categories: the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI), record in head-to-head games, record against common opponents, and record against Teams Under Consideration (TUCs) — teams with an RPI rating of at least .500.

Badgers are in because.....I have no idea. Ranked lower than 'kato, laid and egg in the first round of the WCHA, maybe because the Kohl center is hosting? Who knows. Gophers have a legitimate chance in their bracket. Hope they can get enough rest.

First off I'm a Mavericks fan and MSU grad, so I'm a little biased. I'm trying to keep the language nice for the family audience. grin.gif

I understand that they want to keep the "integrity" of the system intact, but when the system is obviously wrong, it should be the committee's job to fix it. They should look at the computer formulas as a tool, not as absolute truth.

Nothing against Wisconsin (although they are about my least favorite team in the WCHA), but I hope they get pounded in their first game just to embarass the selection committee.

I feel a little better getting that off my chest. crazy.gif

I agree the Mavericks got hosed; they deserve to be there. Being a smaller program that does not usually make it to the NCAA's makes it hurt even worse. Unfortunately the committee is somewhat tied to the system they have in place. The WCHA had all of the toughest schedules in the league because they have to play each other.

I did enjoy seeing that SIX WCHA teams are in the tourney. They added at least one team to every regional so it is possible for a repeat of 2005.

What a disappointment for us Mav fans. Another kick in the pants after last weekend.

I am at a loss for words. I know it is all done by the computer, but it looks terrible that Wisky got in over them, especially with a losing record and the way they have played at the end of this year.

Doesn't really matter much, but I will bet that Bucky will get it handed to them by Denver. Even though the Badgers get home ice as a #3 seed.

One lucky bounce our way and we are in instead of the Goophers and then they are the ones complaining.

As it stands I will cheer for the Gophs. Hopefully Kangas can continue his run.

Yeah 6 WCHA teams is impressive but like most folks, I agree WI and MSU should've been switched. I think DU will take care of the Badgers in the first round anyways. The Gophers will have a tough time with Boston College but the way Kangas has been playing... who knows. As usual, I'll be cheering for SCSU. Maybe they can get themselves out of the first round this year. Even back when we had good teams with Hartigan, Arnason, DiCas, Motzko, Malone, & Meyer it was one and done so I'm not expecting much. Don't know much about Clarkson... we'll see come Friday. Michigan will be a tough regional even if they do win. Frozen Four predictions? I'll go with: B.C., UND, MU, & C.C.

Yea, there's not much we can do about it now. The Mavs should be pretty tough next year, so we'll just have to wait.

I just hope someone from the WCHA (except Wisconsin)wins the national title. I'll be pulling for the Gophers or St. Cloud.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
