According to the report today, the NCAA awarded Frozen Fours to Pittsburgh (2013) and Philly (2014). Now God bless the cities as good hockey cities who support their teams, but where the hell are the college hockey fans in Pennsylvania? Robert Morris? Mercyhurst? Penn St club hockey? For gosh sakes, is the NCAA trying to purposely kill college hockey?
About the only redeeming quality I can come up with is that they are near the East Coast population bases or driveable from Minnesota/Wisconsin for Pittsburgh. If we get to the Pittsburgh Frozen Four, we're looking at a Yost invasion methinks.
