Upset with all of the 1 vs 2 matchups this weekend?

Well, that means you were watching the wrong tournament! While this year’s NCAA Basketball Tournament has been practically devoid of upsets, the NCAA Hockey tournament has been Cinderella City, baby! Of the four four-team regionals this weekend (it’s a 16-team field), not one No. 1 seed made it to the Frozen Four in St. Louis. This is after the first four years of the current format where just one No. 1 seed lost in the first round. Look at what happened this year …

East No. 1 Clarkson lost in overtime in the first round to UMass 1-0.

Midwest No. 1 Notre Dame, after needing double overtime to get out of the first round, lost in the regional final to Michigan State, 2-1.

Northeast No. 1 New Hampshire lost in the first round to Miami-Ohio 2-1.

West No. 1 Minnesota (who has hockey cheerleaders … no joke) had to score three goals in the third period to survive against Air Force, who was making its first NCAA Tournament appearance, only to lose to North Dakota in the regional final.

Boston College stands as the only No. 2 seed to advance. While college hockey is a very regional sport, it’s actually pretty popular at certain schools and the NCAA Hockey tournament is one of four NCAA Championships that make money (and no, the women’s hoops tourney IS NOT one of those four). I actually wouldn’t be surprised to see it become a more major college sport in the future despite the NHL’s demise because it’s very fan friendly.

Further updates will not be coming later.

Hey everyone. I am a huge college football fan like you and a few college buddies and I like to wager (like most everyone) on college games, which by way are almost here!! My favorite team is probably USC right now, but that changes frequently:). Anyway, we were asked to find a good site that carries US Friendly Sportsbooks, as well as odds, scores, trends, predictions, game analyses, etc. We not only found that but we found a site that will be offering a FREE Football Consensus (college and pro) this season. They, which was nice, also have done the reasearch on online casinos and poker rooms that take credit cards, have some rad bonuses and actually keep their bonus promises, as well as payouts. You might want to try them at http://www.coachescorner.com (Coaches Corner Sports) as so far after a few months we have not had any problems. Good luck with your favorite team!
