Single elimination... no third place game...
Unless you are North Dakota (or playing North Dakota in the first slate of games), any "higher seed/home ice" advantage is kind of out the window in a neutral site event.
Are you gonna go to Grand Forks, Quinn? ;-)
I know Grand Forks wanted to host the pod pretty badly. I don't have a big problem with it being in grand forks. I like the fact of the one and done sets up for some very intense hockey
It makes sense seeing how some of the other tournaments are moving to a single site location. -- longer term I'm wondering if the NCAA is still trying to host 4 separate regionals.
as far as me going I'm thinking about it. it's a great time to travel right now. tons of bargains available since everyone is scared to go outside.(and don't even get me started on the stupid mask) I smoke like a chimney and can't breathe with the blasted mask on
Strictly off topic but had to share: (speaking of pod and all that)
I apologize in advance:
