WHO CARES!!!! Mavericks win! Bottom line. Who cares about the second place shoot-out! Gregg Sioux took two from the Mavericks in the Mav’s own building. Mavs going nowhere fast Streaker FTR, Paula- Michigan won their 14th GLI championship and improved to 50-31-1 all time in the GLI according to Matt Trevor at Michigan. FleasOf1000Camels Streaker…you are correct 14 titles. I know it’s shocking to learn that PW can’t be bothered to get facts straight…kind of like the seven-year-old who has just figured out where his Christmas presents really come from. FTR: 1966,75,88,89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,2007,08,10. MackAttack Merrimack has hosted an HEA playoff series before, when Maine was declared ineligible… Dmjossel Actually Merrimack has hosted one playoff series, against BC, the year that Maine was precluded from post-season play by the NCAA for using an ineligible player. Merrimack lost that series. SiouxAlumDenver So I take it Theresa has changed her mind about Tech winning a playoff game against the Sioux. Last week in your predictions before the games you predicted sweep then said “Wait until next week when the series will most likely go three.” After the absolute dismantling of Tech last weekend, it appears your eyes have been opened as to just how bad Tech is. Still would have been nice for you to stick to your original prediction and explain why you thought it or why you changed your mind. Theresa Spisak Well, it still might happen, as MTU is capable of winning games. Yes, last weekend did help me change my mind. Teams don’t typically get blown out 11-2 on senior night (as Tech did). I think it’s not necessarily a case of finally seeing how bad Tech is, but more of a case of finally admitting that yes, Virginia, North Dakota is dominating right now. I think at times this season I’ve probably been a bit harder on UND than I should be (I may explain why next week …) and wasn’t expecting them to lay quite the smackdown as they did. Do I think MTU still has a chance to steal a game? Yes. Will they? Probably not. Thus why I worded my pick the way I did, saying UND will win in most likely two. SiouxAlumDenver No worries, everyone has the right to change their mind. I was just giving you a little guff for saying last week that this series will go 3. But who is Virginia?? Hockey God Virgina was asking about Santa Claus, you may be too young. Theresa Spisak Thank you for getting my reference … which is actually a whole lot older than I am. B.D. Good analysis. Enjoyed it. Hog Pilot Teresa: I am a SCSU fan and I really wished you had picked UMD. This season any time you came down in favor of the Huskies they ended up looking like doggie doo. Either way I have enjoyed your colunm this year. bulldog4life Theresa- Don’t lose sleep over your Sue pick. People change there minds daily. This Sue fan is like the rest of them and just want to pick people apart to be cool or funny. They get there kicks out of doing that. SiouxAlumDenver Actually I wasn’t picking her apart at all. And wasn’t trying to be cool or funny. I asked a question as to why she changed her mind. Get over yourself and your hatred for the best team in country that destroyed your team this year.
