Hobey Hijack

I'm shocked (shocked!) to hear that the online voting for the Hobey Baker has been cracked by bots. USCHO's Jim Connelly reports on his blog that RIT's Simon Lambert and Miami's Ryan Jones have each received more than 200,000 votes, compared to Kevin Porter's 3,994 as of this morning. Frankly, I'm terribly disappointed. Why do we even have a Computer Science building if we're going to be shown up like this?

Meanwhile, the Niagara Gazette and the Buffalo News has the Niagara team's reactions to drawing Michigan in the first round.

Finally, to ensure that we are completely cursed, Bob Norton and Sean Ritchlin both picked us to win the tournament on the selection show and the final USCHO/CSTV poll has us as #1.
