Minnesota State's Bad Luck
Not sure why I'm even writing this.
According to ESPN, these are the top stories of the day yesterday:
Women's College Basketball
Men's College Basketball
Major League Baseball
PGA Tour Golf
NCAA Men's Baseball
NCAA Men's Hockey
NWSL Women's Soccer
All weekend I watched college hockey as Ohio State lost and then Michigan won to complete the Frozen Four. Michigan will join Minnesota, Boston U. and Quinnipiac as the last 4 teams to compete for the NCAA Championship in hockey.
You know who I'm rooting for? No one.
My team washed out in the first round. Again.
Minnesota St. didn't win their first Division I playoff game until 2021. That year the Mavericks made it to the Frozen Four.
At the end of 2022, Minnesota St. lost the National Championship game.
And then last week, it was back to losing in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the 6th time in the last 10 years.
Is Minnesota St.'s wave crashing, or is it just a down year? The CCHA is not a conference on the rise. With the Big 10 putting 4 teams in Final 16 and with Michigan Tech getting hammered this year as the only other CCHA representative, what if the CCHA only puts one team in the tournament next year?
Or maybe NEXT year is Minnesota St.'s year.
(As the big brother Minnesota Golden Gophers could possibly be playing for their 6th Championship next week.)
