So, we've got a game coming up, huh?

Galajda is doubtful for the Huskies. Boo.

Not surprising, unfortunately. Hopefully McGrath can replicate his performance against Harvard at Lynch East.

Seems an appropriate time to remind folks what happened when Touchdown met a husky in 1915.
"At the Cornell vs. Pennsylvania game of 1915, Touchdown was led out on the football field to meet the Penn mascot of the day, a large Husky. Just after this photo was taken, Touchdown raised his paw and smacked the other animal hard enough to send it tumbling to the ground."

They are 25:1 by the .04 odds above.

Not being a betting person at all this is probably a dumb question. When Cornell is 18-to-1 to win can you bet against that event (win $1 or pay out $18)? If so I would think you could get rich just betting against popular teams based on their delusional-fan-goosed odds.

But I'm still never betting on anything.

Sports books set their odds with such delusions in mind - but more importantly, they also reserve the right to change the odds on the fly if the betting skews one particular direction (e.g., because the delusions are stronger than usual). Changing the odds doesn't affect the odds early bettors got, but it affects the odds for new bets, so don't worry, they're pretty sure always to make a profit, and you're pretty sure to end up in the hole.

It's one of the billions of ways people have come up with to suck the pockets dry of people who think "I know I can beat an industry where the house is guaranteed to win because I am smarter than the other bettors," which is demonstrably proven false by the fact that the people smarter than the other bettors are the ones not betting.

is betting $10 to win a game any different than going to a movie for $10? you get some emotional value from a movie, you may win thousands from a game and still get emotional value.

betting thinking you will win, probably not

betting as entertainment, its not any worse than drinking or movies or books.

as someone who is far enough ahead i can never get behind, i think gambling is great.

Playing poker is different than most other betting, because you are playing against other individuals and the house just takes a percentage of the pot, so if you are significantly better than the other players, over time, you can win.

In my youth I was in a season long pool in which each week you were given 20 games to pick against the spread. The top 3 players out of 80 managed to win enough to cover the vig, and would have beaten the bookie. The other 77 would lose to the bookie.

I've only seen clips, but I know they have two star players: defenseman Davies and goalie Primeau. They've won a lot of one-goal games, so they may be worse than their record suggests. (Meanwhile, Cornell has lost more one-goal games than they've won, so they may be better than their record.) Unfortunately, though, Cornell will be considerably shorthanded and NEU will not, as I am not aware of any of their players being injured.

meh.

They were swept by Providence, split with UMass, and I guess you are not using pairwise rankings since I can't find the 4th loss since Nov. 1 vs. top 20 Pairwise team on their schedule.

Your Nov. 1 cutoff also excludes their Oct. 27 win over #1 St. Cloud State.

Our record vs. top 20 pairwise would include 4 wins over Union and 2 over Arizona State, as well as 3-3-2 vs. Hahvahd, Clarkson and Q.

The only thing I feel certain about is that attendance at Allentown will be terrible.

I don't know. I always win playing the slots. Always, 100%, not kidding. Here's how:
  1. Go to the bank and get $5 worth of nickels.
  2. Go to a casino that has nickel slots.
  3. Play them.
  4. When the cocktail waitresses come by, always order a complimentary cocktail.

Because you're starting with 100 nickels, you'll probably play for over an hour. That should be good for 1-3 drinks at least. Even the watered down bourbons they serve are a bargain at the price (free!). Because playing the slots is like a random walk, there's a good chance your net winnings will be positive over any finite time. If not, quit when your roll runs out, and you've spent $5.00 on drinks. If your winnings are positive, quit while you're ahead, any time after you've bet your first 100 nickels.

Arguably the strongest team not named St. Cloud State or Minnesota-Duluth this season, the Mavericks are in prime position to make a run.

So you're arguing that the third-ranked team in the country may be the strongest team that isn't the first- or second-ranked team? Interesting take.

I also like how in the middle of the Cornell write-up, the CHN writer starts three out of four sentences with the word "However". That's bad writing, but a good metaphor for Cornell hockey, especially this year--this is a team of "Howevers".

Agree with this. We have quite a talented team, particular the defensemen. If Matt were healthy I'd have no worries in net. If he's out then the forwards really need to step up, forecheck, and keep the puck 200 feet away from Austin as much as possible.

Betts and Kaldis penalties were in retaliation and totally inexcusable. But also bad calls. Refs missed the NEU guys crosschecking Kaldis and there's no way Betts gets a penalty if Cornell is behind.

I don't buy that. You don't think that game could have gone the same way if it were played in Manchester or Worcester? AIC beat St. Cloud on Minnesota's porch. These games are intense and can turn on any bounce. The "home ice" effect is minimized once you get this far, I think.

I disagree. Once Providence got their second goal the crowd came alive and you could feel the electricity. I can't believe that the team didn't feel that and feed off of it.

Do I think that is the reason they won? Only partially, but it certainly couldn't hurt.

I had a good discussion with Al, and I still don't think it's fair to put a #4 essentially at home, unless changing it would significantly upset others. I don't see how switching teams between Providence an Manchester would have hurt anyone except Providence.

I agree with Jim. The home crowd definitely helped Providence once they scored their first goal. But after the 4th Mankato goal was waved off, they just stopped skating. Frankly, they looked slow.

Trying to understand the “logic” behind how the powers that be assign block seating.

As a Cornell fan, I usually try to sit — maybe optimistically — by the blueline of the end we’ll be attacking for two of the three periods. But yesterday, at the Dunk, Cornell block seating (including the band) was at the end Cornell was defending for 2/3 of the game.

What explains this? Is there some hockey logic to it? Is it some quaint Rhode Island custom, like coffee milk and bubblas? Cluelessness?

Can we get Cornell Athletics to inform our hosts that our team intends to spend most of the game in its offensive zone, and our fans want to sit there so as to cheer their team on and not be bored?

Inquiring minds (with too much time on their hands) want to know.

What was strange was lower-seeded Providence shooting twice at the end where higher-seeded Northeastern shot. Benches were reversed in terms of seeding, too. Cornell had the Mankato bench. Entrances to the ice from locker rooms also reversed.

Maybe Providence was given the locker room used by Friar basketball that plays st the Dunk.

It's even weirder. The home team in the first game was on the side of the rink that the visiting team, Cornell, had for the second game. If they had been consistent with the locker rooms then things would have lined up the way we expect them to.

And yet the Mavericks and Friars were seated at the "wrong" end of the ice too. The rink manager should know better.

I'm never going to dispute that a rocking, boisterous arena can provide some sort of advantage to a team. OF COURSE having a large partisan crowd can help with energy and intangibles, but to say it's not possible for them to win without it is wrong, IMO.

Heck, I'd say that when a team is down 3-0 and they score, even the non-partisans will respond with some noise, energy, and excitement (oh, and your very measurable and tangible quantity of "electricity";), because neutral fans WANT to see a good, entertaining, close game. Nobody wants to go to a game where a team gets blown away, save for one team's fans.

If they had played this game in Manchester, guess who would STILL have a large majority of fan support in the building? Still Providence. Is that still unfair?

We played a school whose campus is 50 miles from the regional site. Is that also unfair?

I hope you don't get hurt from all that "electricity" tonight. Make sure you bring a grounding wire, I hear Providence lead Hockey East in current this season.

Honestly, I find the rare blowout that we execute somewhat boring as well, unless it's against (in order of ascending glee):
  • Dartmouth, for the Gaudet lulz
  • Colgate, for historical reasons
  • SLU, to stick it to those dumb, rich kids and some of the league's most annoying home fans
  • Yale, because we owe them
  • Clarkson, because it's always fun to dump on your most respected rival
  • RPI, for all their accumulated cheap play over the years
  • Union, because: Bennett
  • BU, for the national inhale of shock
  • Minnesota, to remind them of why their pride ought to stay on the links, and we owe them
  • BC, who should go away already
  • Harvard, obvs.
  • Quinnipiac, for their accumulation of the worst trends in college hockey, their horrible rink culture, and—well—Rand

Each qualifying team has demonstrated it is dangerous either by solid play all year long or getting hot at AQ time. AIC (Springfield, MA) beat #1 St. Cloud in Fargo with no home advantage.

However, it is not fair for 1 seeds to travel long distances and play in the 4 seed's city or building. I understand why the NC$$ does it but it harms the competitive neutrality of the sport and that has to always be the sine qua non of sports. We would not tolerate them saying "we have to let colleges pay to provide 'host referees' in the real world" and host venues amount to the same thing.

One thing they need to do is move the regionals a little more west, especially the Midwest.

The locations do change, and there are more teams in the Northeast. But every year it seems that at least two of the top four teams are from the NCHC, WCHA, or the Big10. Allentown might not be so bad for Penn State, but for most of the teams from those conferences, it's a trip.

When two top seeds are from Minnesota almost every year and one of them has to go pretty far East, troubles arise.

Plus the hosting thing. I know money and attendance > fairness, but a #4 seed shouldn't get a home crowd.

I agree that "no chance" is incorrect. However I'm still not sure what you mean by 'The home ice effect is minimized once you get this far, I think.'

Of course I think Providence would have had more fans in Manchester than Minny State, but I'm confident that it would have been many fewer than what they had yesterday.

My point is that it's not fair to give a #4 seed the home ice advantage. That's all.

From a hockey point of view, I think the playoffs should all be on "neutral ice". But I understand from a business point of view, why they put a host team at home. All Providence needed to do to be sure that they would be at the Dunk, was to put up the money and time to host.

As to your comment that you 'hope (I) don't get hurt from all that "electricity" tonight.', well I don't see what that has to do with your argument. If you meant it to be snarky, so be it.

For the umpteenth time, Providence was not the host.

And that is the point. Twice they have been given the host perk even though they refuse to host.

Cornell wont go thru the effort of hosting, dont know why they dont try, or co host with RIT or Canisius or something in Roch. even the on Syracuse center sets 6k and would probably work .

It would be interesting to see what the real cost of hosting is, or what attendance makes it a break even. if the 150K and 80% of revenue numbers are true, you would think the 5-7K of tickets sold have to close to break even.

It might make for a good Sun article someday with a little investigation.

from last years notes:

Fairfield University and Yale University will co-host the 2018 Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Regional at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport. The two schools also brought the regional to the state of Connecticut in 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2014

no idea if 2 schools that both could qualify could do it.. but Syracuse/Cornell could do one or Cornell/UB/Buf St?
