Every so often, often at our prompting, Stu does some research about an absurd piece of history that nobody would believe in a million years -- except that it's true! This go-round: The old WCHA playoff system. Stu?
The WCHA playoffs used to be set up as a two-game, total-goal series in the ‘70s and ‘80s.
You cannot be serious. Next thing, you’ll tell me the University of Minnesota hockey team is worse than SCSU, Mankato, UMD and Bemidji State. (Checks WCHA and CHA standings.) Oh. Oh, no. Did you need a moment?
Yes. Take however long you need.
There. Much better. Surely, though, this was an opening-round thing, and they went to a best-of-3 or Final Four bracket for the title? Nope, even the conference champ was determined that way.
Well, that’s just stupid. I agree. It’s like NBC giving Leno five nights a week in primetime to be not funny.
I would have gone with the Brewers giving Randy Wolf $30 million, but yours works, too. Thank you.
