Regionals Reaction

Apologies for the lack of posts. I've been in Michigan since Friday, attending the NCAA Hockey Tournament Midwest Regional. US College Hockey Online has the results. Suffice it to say that my predictions were somewhat less than prescient. To put it less politely, they sucked.

The big disappointment for me was the failure of the Michigan Wolverines to advance out of the Midwest Regional to the "Frozen Four" (don't call it "Final Four"). After handily defeating Wisconsin 4-1 on Friday night, Michigan met Colorado College in the regional final on Saturday. The Wolverines jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the 2nd period, only to see the Tigers come back to win 4-3. With the loss, Michigan's season came to an end. Colorado College now moves on to face their archrivals Denver in one of two national semifinals on April 7 in Columbus, Ohio.

As a Michigan fan, it is sad and frustrating to see a team that was capable of winning the national title have their season come to a premature end, especially in a game that was seemingly under control. Still, I have to credit Colorado College for a great comeback, and wish them the best of luck in Columbus.
