That said, with how uninspired we've been playing lately, I wouldn't be overly surprised if you sweep us in a few weeks.

I'd be more surprised by that than by any other outcome, though maybe not as surprised as I should be. Nothing strongly surprises me at this point, especially with how inconsistent they've been throughout the season. (If I were to bet on it, though, I'd bet on a Minnesota sweep, and not just to hedge my happiness.)

No... we are historically terrible.

Which is why it wouldn't be incredibly surprising.

We haven't exactly been beating up the bottom of the Pairwise this season.

Not sure Wisconsin can actually fall by losing to BU, so I think MN would have to go up in order for us to beat that differential against Northeastern. Very strange, but true.

Hey, at least you have a good shot for a sweep next Halloween against ASU.

Forget Northeastern, that's ancient history. We needed overtime to beat RIT (I believe #49 in the Pairwise at the time) at home last weekend to take 3rd place in our own tournament.

Interesting note from the San Jose/Minnesota broadcast tonight. Apparently Suter has 5 hours more ice time than any other Wild player this year.

[QUOTE=WiscDC;6071301]So...the 2014-15 Wisconsin men's hockey team will usually lose against highly ranked opponents? I don't think anyone in here would dispute that.
Don't mistake people saying that the Badgers played a solid game by this year's standards ...QUOTE]
Not sure that's a vote of confidence :rolleyes:

Oh... there's no question I want the wheels to completely come off as I feel short term pain is necessary for the needed long term solution.

I won't actively root against my team, but I just don't see the AD seeing the problem without it being a problem of nuclear proportions.

1000% agree!

Pardon the interruption - wanted to quickly ask you guys that live there if you think the weather for tomorrow will cause any delays. I hear you will be getting some snow, just don't know when. I'm flying to Madison through Chicago. My flight leaves O'Hare at 3:00 with scheduled arrival at 3:47. Will it be bad then?

It's only supposed to be one or two inches. You should be fine.

What brings you to Madison?

We're only supposed to get 1-3", so I wouldn't expect that to cause significant delays. It'll probably be snowing when you arrive, though. And f-ing cold!

EDIT: what Gurt said!

There was some discussion about our 1st halves under Eaves, so I put together the following table. NCAA appearances are noted by the season years being in bold in the 1st column. When either half of the season was under .500, those cells are highlighted yellow. I considered the first half to run through the ol' Badger Hockey showdown when applicable. Unsurprisingly, there were no NCAA appearances when they were under .500 in the first half with the exception of 2012-13 when they got the autobid.

An American Airlines jet!

Are you being facetious? Has it not been made clear in the Lodge I'm a BU fan? If not, I should probably change that :) Headed there to see BU play Wisconsin.

My guess is that you will enjoy your weekend here.

I know, but I'm not the sort of guy to rub it in.

Until next Monday.


I should use smiley faces more I suppose, but I have a sort of natural aversion to it. Gurt made me laugh if that wasn't clear.
