I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Ok kids, you know the drill. Michigan plays Western Michigan. The winner plays Miami for the Mason cup. The rundown shall commence:

The Club Hockey team won their bracket in San Jose and has moved on to the National Semi Finals. The website is referring to them as the tourney's "Cinderella." They play Sparty tonight at 8:00 pm. 3 of 4 semi finalists from the state of MI (GVSU).
Make it happen, fellas!
Hagelin won best Defensive Forward and Hunwick, Denard Robinson-like, (he was left off of the all-conference teams by the coaches) won Best Goaltender (determined purely by GAA).
Red Berenson did not win Coach of the Year and Jon Merrill did not win Rookie of the Year, Best Offensive Defensemen or Best Defensive Defensemen. Hagelin also failed to win Player of the Year.
Info from MGoBlue (http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/031711aaa.html)
The CCHA website doesn't have information yet, so I can't say for sure who won what, but I think Blashill (WMU) for Coach of the Year, Tynan (ND) for Rookie of the year and Miele (Miami) for Player of the year are pretty obvious. For the other two, I would guess Lorenz (ND) for defensive defenseman and Krug (MSU) for offensive defensemen.
EDIT: Jeff Jackson (ND), in what is perhaps a greater travesty than Shawn Hunwick not making an all-CCHA team, won Coach of the Year over Jeff Blashill.
EDIT 2: Besides Mass Confusion of the Jeff's, my picks were correct. CCHA Release: http://www.ccha.com/2010-11_ccha_award_winners.aspx
Hagelin was also left off the Top 10 list of Hobey Baker candidates, released today (http://www.uscho.com/2011/03/17/list-of-hobey-baker-award-finalists-incl...).
ESPN: Team doctors told Martin that Pacioretty can resume training, with contact, in three to five weeks. After another week of rest, he will begin rehab. The playoffs begin April 13.
It's "good news that he'll be able to practice," especially because it looked as if "his career was in danger," Martin said Thursday.
tl:dr version: BTHC was a subject of discussion during B10 meetings in Indy. May release a statement as soon as Monday about their intentions of going through with it for 2013-2014. WCHA and CCHA also preparing plans for their contractions.
FYI, Yost built is reporting that Michigan received a commitment from Evan Allen, likely a class 2013 player.
