    The main worry is the only 2 teams (besides meechigan) that have given OSU problems the last few years are UNO (who we already played) and MSU. last year MSU came into the Schott and just punked the Bucks twice. This years team is definitly different but historically MSU has been a stumbling block the last few seasons.
     
  4. a ccha championship means an auto bid i believe. (though this year rick james will not buy all the drinks for the boys)

    Correct on the automatic bid

    The CCHA Tournament Champion is automatically invited to the tournament. Since they haven't played the tournament however, they just selected the #1 team in each conference for now.

    Obviously there will be some upsets and things will get shaken up a bit during the conference tournament.

    What amazes me is that Minnesota is ranked so high in the pairwise rankings. They have dropped to #10 in both regular polls and have been on an unbelievable tail spin for the past four weekends.
     
  6. i agree, though im not gonna get my panties in a bunch, granted a terrible showing by either school in the tourney they both should be in. pretty much garunteed a tough draw with only 16 teams in it. it would suck to be in denvers or cc's bracket, but thats the way the cookie crumbles.

    minnesota is one of those legendary programs some how always keeps their mystique-but i agree they seemed overranked the way they are playing (granted i do not follow it as closely as you nor claim too)

    It's definitely a hard situation to read

    And if I were you guys I would worry a little bit about being left out which sucks for the CCHA.

    IMO you are clearly worthy of an invitation but your 3-2-1 bonus pairwise ranking still isn't the most impressive. Your being hurt by your non-conference schedule and the fact that you got put into a very poor cluster this year for the CCHA.

    If you split with MSU and then get upset in the first round of the CCHA tourny (Not very likely but could happen) then I'd really be worried about your tournament status. Fortunately your coach is building a much stronger team and I think in the next few years your non-conference schedule will become more competitive.

    What really chaps my ass though is that Minnesota is 4-7-1 in their last 12 games (with 7 of the games at home) and they are still climbing in the pairwise rankings.

    The CCHA REALLY needs a third team to step up and become a perenial top 10 team.
