Interesting article over at SiouxSports.com on the possible Pairwise position for the Top 20 teams.

Looks like DU will finish between a 4th & 9th seed in the country depending on all the results this weekend.

If the win both games they won't finish lower than 6th in the Pairwise.

It doesn't matter what a ranking is anymore. We've had a #1 seat over the past 3 seasons and it amounted to squat. Plus lower seat teams have been kicking a lot of ass over the past couple season as well. Just get in and anything can happen. Our 04 team should of taught us that.

I hope the Beavers pull it out. There is nothing better then Pioneers taking care of tired Beaver.

Got tickets to the WCHA Final Five Games.
'Bout to cheer for Jason Zucker in his city.
I would love to see DU slaughter UND in the championship game in front of these 5000+UND fans.
