The only "upset" I see is Sioux Fall over Omaha. For some reason, I saw Omaha play more games this year than just about any other team and, frankly, I don't believe that they are the 2nd, or third for that matter, best team in the West. I do believe that Sioux Falls is - especially after seeing them shut down SC last night. SF sweeps.
LOL. So after picking Falls to lose against an inferior SC team, you have em beating Omaha? Flip-floppin like that would make you a great politician .
I look at it like this...
Goaltending - Omaha(and that's not even close)
Defense - Push-slight-advantage to Omaha
Offense - Sioux Falls
Intangibles - Omaha
Omaha just wins. They've got the best player in the series(Marshall) with a coach who knows how to win and a player like Ambroz who is an inconsistent potential force. Falls on the other had has the consistent offensive threats and a guy like Rau who is just a gamechanger. I give it to Omaha in 5.
Crossing my everloving fingers for a Dubuque sweep since Lincoln let me down.

What makes you believe I am not?
I based my "prediction" on the fact that SC was one of, if not the hottest team in the USHL over the last several weeks of the season. I thought for sure that the least known Musketeer, Moe Mentum, would carry them.
Dubuque swept Fargo as they won 3-0 last nite at the Scheels Arena. Dubuque played some fantastic team defense blocking shot after shot and when they got through Morris ws there to stop them. Gothberg on the otherhand for the Force struggled and all 3 goals should of been stopped. His postitioning was not good the entire night. He is not ready to play for the Fighting Sioux yet. Needs another year for the Force.
