8-1, yikes change is needed. Can this even wait to be dealt with in the off season?

Perrin said they made a ton of mistakes, how can they play so sloppy? Eaves said he simplified things....

HA! The rodents lose! I'll take any positive I can get.

I didn't think I'd ever say this, but I'm turning down a ride to Madison to the game tomorrow. Going to watch Coulee Region and Janesville in an NAHL tilt instead.

Your typing is still very coherent. I can't imagine you stopped pounding them down, unless you have to drive.

Spell check is good thing.

Who turned off the lights in Madison, tonight?

Hey, it can't get any worse.....go to the UW game.

I can't wait to listen to Eaves' post game press conference. "Sometimes when you go climbing, you forget to tie that last knot". That's my prediction for his analogy.

I won't be surprised at all if you're correct, Tim. You were spot on prophetic with this:



This feels like the BC game last year.

I was wrong, he was Mr. Positive with Posick. He essentially said Tech already played 2 games since the break and UW was rusty. Pearson said the same thing in his post game presser. Hopefully I'll find Eaves' post game with Baggot in the AM.

I think it's time for Eaves to strip down and serve up some more post-game staredowns. Eyeball to Eyeball. Yup, that'll fix it.

If you haven't heard the story, it's best to pretend like he's making something up.

Had UW lost two more games since break, it would only have been a 5-3 loss.

This is just a joke at this point, a sad pathetic joke.

HA! The rodents lose! I'll take any positive I can get.I guess it is simpler if you drop all pretense that you might win?

Okay, so 8-1 final. Some historical context from the record book .pdf on uwbadgers.com:


Not our worst loss ever by a long shot (that honor goes to a 2-12 loss to Minnesota back in 1922).
That shellacking ties our worst modern era loss of a 2-12 home loss to St. Mary's (a D-III MIAC school in Minnesota in our second game after re-instating the program).
Our worst loss after Badger Bob started was a 0-9 playoff loss at UMD.
This matches our all-time worst result against Tech, who beat us 1-8 early in the 82-83 season in Houghton, although it's not the most goals we've given up against them.
They've put up 9 goals on us. Twice. On the same weekend, if you'd believe it (in Houghton in late Feb. of 1976).
This is the 20th time in the modern era (28th overall) that the Badgers have been beat by 7+ goals, and only the third time in Eaves' tenure.
This is the 72nd time in the modern era (78th overall) that the Badgers have had 8+ goals hung on them, and only the third time in Eaves' tenure.
It'll probably shock no one, but from the time Badger Bob started coaching until the 1992 Frozen Four team, we had 8+ goals scored on us 47 **** times. Although, oddly enough, one of those times was a victory: an 11-8 victory over Michigan in February of 1977. That truly was a different era for hockey in general, and it's no wonder that a lot of Eaves' and Johnson's scoring records aren't likely to fall any time soon. (The Badgers put on their fair share of 7+ goal margins and 8+ goal totals in that time as well)
For the record, my final tallies for different eras when I went through counting 7 goal losses through the ages: 8 times in the original era, 4 times in the modern era before Bob Johnson, 10 times in the Badger Bob through 1992 FF era, and 6 times since (3 during Eaves' tenure).
The corresponding count for 8+ goal games: 6 in original era, 9 in pre-Badger modern era, 47 in Badger-through-1992 FF era, and 16 since (including 3 during Eaves' tenure).

Edit: Hrm. Evidently, the board censors "a bucket of photos" as if it were a curse word, so instead of a comically exaggerated Andy Richter slow clap, you're getting this:

Tonight's loss would translate into a 32-4 loss in 1976.

By the end we were literally laughing out loud (in disgust) and admiring the fine hockey plays made by Tech.

It definitely translates to me having a scotch before bed tonight. And all I did was watch the USCHO box score every few minutes. I can't imagine the pain of actually trying to watch that crap.
