Here it is folks, the matchups are now set. FYI, Quinnipiac and UMass-Lowell are the "home" teams since they are the higher seeds. Quinnipiac is the "home" team throughout the Frozen Four since they are the overall #1 seed in the tournament.
Both semi-final games will be carried live on ESPN2 on Thursday, Apr. 11. The winners will play for the national championship on Saturday, Apr. 13 and the game will be carried live on ESPN. All times are EST.
Two notes here: None of this year's participants have won a national championship and only Yale has previously played in the Frozen Four.
Semi-final #1: Yale vs. UMass-Lowell @ 4:30pm
Semi-final #2: St. Cloud State vs. Quinnipiac @ 8:00pm
National Championship game: Semi-final #1 winner vs. Semi-final #2 winner @ 7pm
So who do you think will win it all? Chime in!

A bit dissapointed that my two teams didn't make it this far, but I'm always ok with a frozen four like this one! I believe whoever wins it will have the first national title in their school's history. Pretty exciting stuff. Yale v. UML is going to be a hell of game and I think Quinnipac is coming out of the other side.
I think it is dumb to wait 2 weeks to play this. Who gives a crap about the final four of basketball. It's not like it will take away from attendance or tv viewing. Hockey folks are going to watch hockey regardless of what else is on.
Good game so far. Rooting for Yale. No specific reason why, but that's who I chose. Too bad they ****ed up my bracket.
