It's the Wednesday before the NCAA hockey tournament starts, so get ready for a flurry of posts, because we love this time of year. We've put together a list of the top 9 games we've personally seen Michigan play in the NCAA tournament (one for each national championship the program has won) and we'll be posting three a day until Friday evening. Look for some other new content as well (hint: It may involve Werner Von Braun AND Mike Eruzione!).
For now, USCHO has coaches' reactions to the NCAA brackets, including a quote from Red, but it's MSU coach Rick Comley with the most painful bit of information:
"As late as 11 p.m. [Saturday] night, we were headed to Denver, but apparently the committee changed its mind and went strictly with the numbers."
Ouch. Also, Rick Comley's ideas are intriguing to me and I would like to subscribe to his newsletter:
"What I would like to see is a play-in game [between the CHA and Atlantic Hockey]. The CHA should not have an automatic bid under any circumstance whatsoever. They should have a play-in opportunity."
