    Wisco’s streak with Johnson behind the bench is actually at 27-0 against non-WCHA teams.  Not sure how you are getting to 82-0.

    • Arlan Marttila

      I got to 82-0 by counting all games for UW + Mark Johnson versus everybody but UMD and Minnesota. Thus, games with Bemidji State, Minnesota State, North Dakota, Ohio State, and St. Cloud State were counted.

    Come on, man.  Air Force gets thumped by DU, while RIT beats Ferris and LSSU, and Air Force still gets your twenty slot?

    • Gotta go by the overall record. AFA did beat CC, and they’re still the best team in AHA till Tigers or someone else proves otherwise.

      • Guest

        You know Air force has a history of choking in OT in the NCAA Regionals right?  Plus their players won’t see a lick of NHL or AHL ice.

        • RITAnon

          That’s not because they are bad players or incapable of playing at those levels. It’s because they are choosing to go fight and possibly lose their lives in defense of their country. 

        • Falcons

          losing to top seeded yale last year in OT was a choke? air force dominated that game. they were the better team. Yale won on a soft goal that took a weird bounce off of Torf. Unless you were there, like i was two rows off the ice, then you dont have a clue.

      • komey

        Air Force also is ranked higher in the RPI and Krach.  The only thing RIT has over Air Force is that the Tigers won their only meeting to date. 

        • LtPowers

          Head-to-head is pretty important.

  • I’m not sure taking a top seed to overtime is considered choking. Yale and Vermont were favored to win those games.

  • Scott

    Chris, One more non-conference AHA win Army 3-2 over RPI Friday @ UConn Classic.

  • Spidermonkey86

    Where’s Cornell? You have AF ranked and don’t even have one most well balanced teams on there. Typical homer. 

  • When Cornell beats a good team, I’ll vote for them. Let’s see how they do at CC next weekend. AFA beat CC…will Cornell?
