Another CT school will soon have an NCAA National Championship this month.

So St. Cloud State and UMass Lowell will play for the Unskewed Hockey Championship?

Ipecac needed a Minnesotan to play goalie, that's the only way they could pull it off.

Yes, and it also means Alexander Ovechkin is president of the NCAA.

Women's college basketball doesn't count.

Im glad to see NCAA hockey get a little bit more national exposure.

If it's UCONN it may count. The girls at UCONN probably bring in more money than 90%, or more.  of the college hockey teams.

As a Connecticutian who graduated from an ECAC hockey school, this pleases me.

Go Yale.
But Quinnipiac would be ok too.

As a Sioux, er, North Dakota fan, I am just glad that there is no chance than BC, MN or DU will be taking home the hardware. Will probably root for Yale since they beat us cleanly.

College sports don't count.  This argument is null and void.  It is akin to a hairiest balls contest.  It's gross and no one wins.
/Go Whalers?

Nate Silver's model never saw this coming. Honestly, though, Yale was literally the last team to get in.

In honor of one of these Connecticut hockey teams achieving glory, have some "Brass Bonanza"

Wisconsin hockey fan here, and I read an article in the local paper yesterday.  This is the first Final Frozen Four since 1948 in which at least one of the above four bolded schools and Wisconsin, Michigan and BU were not present.  Fantastic for the game, but the already low ratings will suffer greatly.  Will sports fans be talking about what Tiger needs to do to win the Masters or who will prevail between Quinnipiac and Yale in college hockey?  Sadly, we know the answer to that question.  Will probably root for Quinnipiac, because it sounds funny, and is difficult to shorten.  At least Renssalear Polytechnic Institute can be reduced to RPI.

This Quinnipiac team is really a sight to see. They were flying last night in the first period. I missed the Yale game because I had hockey after work, but they said they were dominating the pace in that game too. Its gonna be a good game Saturday despite Yale already losing 3 times to Quinnipiac this year. They are playing their best hockey right now, and as they say, it's hard to beat a team 4 times.

And may I just say that UND has the best nickname in the NCAA right now.  Long may it remain.

/still trying to get used to this "college sports are srs bzns" thing
//down here intervarsity is strictly beer league

Really?

Feel how you want about the controversy around it, but what's special and amazing about "Fighting Sioux" as a name?

Other than, you know, nothing.

They used to be called that?  I was referring to the University of North Dakota Untitleds.

Ah.  Okay.  I can get behind that.

Quinnipiac were also the Untitleds a few years ago when they were in between Braves and the new Bobcats nickname.

Wait till the NCAA finds out they are still using Native American words in the name of the school. They could have been the "Untitled University Untitleds."
 
2013-04-12 09:13:02 PM
Check out the ages of Quinnipiac players half of them are in their mid 20's.   No wonder they made the championship game.  Might as well be an AHL team.
