"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
2013 NCAA Hockey Tournament
NCAA Hockey Tournament is kicking off right now with the (4) Yale up 2-0 on (1) Minnesota. Not to jinx Yale, but I love to see Minnesota choke in the tournament every year. Happens a lot
Very strange to watch the tournament without any maize & blue. Sad to see them playing at Van Andel with our logo everywhere but we're no where to be found.
Also up today is:
(4) Wisconsin vs (1) Umass-Lowell - 4:30 (Manchester, NH)
(3) Niagara vs (2) North Dakota - 5:30 (Grand Rapids)
(2) New Hampshire vs (3) Denver - 8:00 (Manchester, NH)
I'll be interested to see if the CCHA can finally break through and get a national title this year. The conference has been on the cusp in recent years. The CCHA has been the runner up in 4 of the last 5 years (Ferris 2012, Michigan 2011, Miami 2009, Notre Dame 2008). GIven that the NCAA put the only 2 CCHA teams in the same regional, I'd say the chances are low
