BTW, fucking Arizona St??!!

I saw them play Northeastern 2 years ago and they were HORRIBLE. That's an amazing story (they are #10 PW right now.)

I've randomly bitched about this on this board, but MN St. being rewarded for it's #1 seed by having to fly (literally) half-way across the country (bullshit #1) and having to play Providence in Providence (wtf #2) is everything that's wrong with the NCAA playoff hockey format.

Always nice to see Ohio State lose. St. Cloud St. vs. Denver ought to be a beauty.

With no Michigan schools, rooting for the teams with VGK prospects so this year that's Denver, Clarkson, Providence and Bowling Green.

Nothing about a Jerry Falwell school-based thing is ever going to be funny or cool.
Oof, this aged poorly.

2026 Frozen Four awarded to Las Vegas/T-Mobile Arena.

ETA: Because the NCAA, the 2023 Frozen Four is in Tampa hosted by the University of Wisconsin, the 2025 is in St. Louis hosted by the University of Vermont and the 2026 Frozen Four is in Las Vegas hosted by the University of North Dakota.

America.

Why wouldn't they let ASU host the Vegas event? They've put some coin into that program and went from a joke to a playoff contender in remarkably short time.

I think when I went a few years back here in Tampa, U of Alabama Huntsville "hosted".
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

IN 2009 the Naval Academy hosted the D1 Frozen Four in DC....which did not have a varsity ice hockey team. I think it is more about who is willing to do the organization work and willing to take the $ risk for hosting the event.
