OT -College Hockey

I know that most people on here are die hard college football fans, but anyone besides me a die hard college hockey fan? Season starts this weekend for most teams.

Lots of new teams in different conferences now. Who wins the title this year? I will always take my Fighting Sioux.

    Post season I'll pay attention to it, but I'll watch NHL games for my hockey fix.

    Love college hockey, although I follow it less now that I used to, both because it doesn't get a ton of play now that I'm in Maryland and because my alma mater (University of Maine) has become much less relevant, although I'll start following more this year now that Tim Whitehead is gone.

    The 1992-93 Maine team that went 42-1-2 was one of the most dominant teams I've seen in any sport, they were so enjoyable to watch.  I've been to the Frozen Four twice - once in Anaheim when Maine won their 2nd championship my Senior year there, and then to Boston when Maine lost to Denver (notable for Maine's 1st goal being disallowed that lead to a rule change) and Denver holding up to a 6-3 for the last minute or so.

    In the GWN hockey is the winter sport, although sometimes the playoffs make it an early summer sport. Junior hockey is much more popular than college/university hockey, probably because many of the best players either play Junior or take a scholarship to a US school. It is hard to get coverage of US college hockey on a regular basis. WHL/OHL coverage is pretty good. 
    The WHL/OHL/QJMHL have some great games, much better than watching the NHL, IMHO. Players play with their hearts while showing some amazing skill. it is all good.
