Gross Oversight- 5 Title-Less Teams in 2011 Hunt

I recently read an article over at USCHO.com titled "Looking for No. 1: Watch These 5 Title-Less Teams in 2011 Hunt". In this article the author talks about how only 17 Division I schools have won a national championship and it might be time for a new hockey program to get a national title. The article goes on to mention 5 teams (without a national championship) that may be able to get one in 2011. Their list is below:
  1. Miami
  2. Vermont
  3. Yale
  4. New Hampshire
  5. Minnesota-Duluth
Notice anything wrong with this list?

How about that St. Cloud State is a "title-less team" that is easily better than 3 (or more) of the teams on this list. The only team that I can say has a very reasonable chance at being better than SCSU this season is Miami. The rest of these teams are not likely to be better than St. Cloud this season. Don't take my word for it? Check out the Inside College Hockey 10 teams for '11 or the College Hockey News Preseason top 10.

Simply said, this was a RIDICULOUS oversight by the USCHO team and honestly they should feel embarrassed.
