Good question. Keep your eyes on Twitter...

Edit: Fwiw, I doubt they'll do it today

If only we still had a beat writer covering the team...

Slight change of topic: what other non-UW specific forums do you guys post in? Buckyville? 247? Elsewhere?

Well... we do, but he's a shill for the department.

Personally, I have put my NHL money on hold for next year (which you know was my former Badger hockey money), and put back in the Badger hockey coffers.



My interest in next years team is definitely a great deal higher than it was during last year. Can't wait to see how quickly they can turn this program back into the winner that it should be.

I'm hoping to get back for at least 1 or 2 games next year as well. Hopefully the schedule will cooperate.

Did I see somewhere that Hamre, Director of Hockey Operations, was let go too? I'm curious cause I know John a little.

His position has posted, so perhaps he wasn't let go but re-assigned. Hard to say at this point.

I'm a subscriber on Badger247. Best money I ever spent. Not too big of a hockey crowd, but I like to post hockey stuff, and once in a while a decent convo will break out, like the current coaching search.

If anyone is into bball and football recruiting, 247 is definitely the best site.

Pay? For something on the internet? Crazy talk.

For the gospel on college hockey, most purists prefer siouxsports.com

The position was posted the same day as the coaching jobs.

Coverage....This was the first year of having no daily beat writer. Punzel wrote some nice articles for both the women's and men's teams, but he is not the beat writer. Bucky's 5th Q never really replaced Chuck/Andy either. I was in discussions about helping out on that site, but I just didn't think I had enough time, and I didn't considering how deep I dove into the women's team this year, I'm glad I didn't. It's nice that Andy B got a job with UW, but it's hardly a journalistic endeavor, his employer mutes him. I am confident Andy B will get the scoop on the new coach. As others have said, Twitter is the place to find the breaking UW news, so in that respect, I don't really miss a beat writer. I do miss the awesome analysis Chuck/Andy did.

The future is really exciting right now. Let's just hope BA doesn't screw this up. It's still very possible he can. He has made bad coaching hires before.

I've got to say, "Wisconsin Hockey Vol I: Dawn of the Fifth Age of UW Hockey!" is energized like I haven't seen in years.

Personally, I have put my NHL money on hold for next year (which you know was my former Badger hockey money), and put back in the Badger hockey coffers.

I'm pretty confident the Godfather is outsourcing for info for the new coach, and I would be happy with any of the guys mentioned....I'd just like to see Oz.

It's amazing what a little hope for the future can do. It's becoming much more clear to me Eaves didn't lose his job just because he lost games, but because he became far to toxic to the fans and had drawn to much negativity for the future to the program.

Yeah, I signed up there today, but only for the free option. What could possibly be worth paying for on a web forum?

Didn't stop me from making a post there earlier today.

Hell, I'm surprised that I"m still allowed here...

Boy, seeing Schmaltz and Boeser on a line together in Cincy really stings.

100% agree! What could have been.....

I find North Dakota to be as easy to hate/respect (I think those two things go hand in hand) as almost any other sports organization.

Wow, that was pretty by the Badger recruits. :):)

There's a lot of insider recruiting content that isn't available to non-subscribers. I started with the free trial and got hooked, as many others on there have.

On the topic of the coach announcement - I definitely want them to wait until a little after the men's basketball season ends, if they have a decision by that time. You may as well maximize headline space and hoopla/fanfare by spreading it out.

Posick hinted on Twitter that we should know the next head coach next Thursday or Friday.
