Arrrrrgh, two more weekends of this?  Really?

 

I know it's like farting in the wind, but I am so tired of this 'madness'.  It's overhyped, poorly officiated, and one or another group of fans is going to be shouting in outrage over something or other.  Goodness gracious people, it's a SPORTING EVENT.  Treat it as such, all this ravenous feeding frenzy is just stupid, save it for stuff that really matters and take the time to enjoy the competition instead.

 

Now that that's out of the way, the Ice Hockey tourney is all set up to roll, and I've actually got -3- horses in the race.  Unfortunately, two of 'em square off when Michigan and Niagara pair off for their first round bout.  In the end regional loyalties will outweigh any other, so I'm hoping for the 'colossal' upset of Niagara over Michigan.  The third horse is Wisconsin, whom is a 3 seed facing Denver... realistically, anything can happen.  My ideal scenario for round one is for Niagara to pull the upset along with Wisconsin.  This would leave Niagara facing either St Cloud State or Clarkson, while Wisconsin would face down either North Dakota or Princeton...

 

Realistically?  Wisconsin was middle of the road this year for the most part, while Niagara wasn't properly tested.  If I go with my head (Which I will) I'm going to pick Michigan to take the whole shooting match, and if I'm lucky, it'll be taken over Wisconsin.  An all Big 10 (Football) matchup!  Of course, it's more realistic to be Miami facing Michigan for all the marbles.  I can't pretend to be an expert on the college game overall, but hockey is still the greatest game on the planet as far as I'm concerned.
