Question for Americans: how do teams qualify for bowl games? i.e. why are Stanford and VTech playing?

Almost as bad as it did when the Canadians lost to the Americans last year.

it definitely doesn't help that in canada hockey is on tsn/cbc, while here in america we've got this on the nhl network or streams. who has the nhl network?

interesting exchange right now on the nhl network stream about the hockey development program down here, and the resurgence of college hockey here in america.

He ended up losing some weight but not enough. This was when he was playing in the Second division in Russia(1 level below RSL). This was when i was working on contract in Russia, i returned in 2009 and worked for another year but i never saw the guy in any KHL sides so i guess he just stuck to eating Donuts. Talented guy.

Bowl Game teams are determined by a computer and winning conferences. It's a long story and it's not for this thread.

Take it home Canada.

Last year everyone here was claiming that US Hockey is the superior program and is taking over, and now nobody cares about hockey in US?

This game certainly hasn't lived up to the previous contests between these teams.

As a hockey fan, I want the americans to make it interesting.
