The refs won the UW, BU game. Atrocious. Eastern bias?

I am only going back three years, but I think the refs are the reason the Badgers have lost a game dating back to at least 07. :D

I listened to the radio broadcast, so I can't speak to some of the penalties as I didn't see them, but that said I'm not really that upset with the refs. They were bad, that's just something you have to deal with and move on.

What I am quite upset about though is the lack of video replay available, that's 100% inexcusable on the part of the organizers.

You guys are getting good at losing to Boston teams. Maybe Northeastern or Harvard can fly up for tonight's game to complete the hat trick. :)

Wisconsin should play Miami for a shot at the title of ultimate futility against Boston.

Well, we do play Holy Cross tomorrow. Close enough right?

I think Wisconsin is still a light year behind Miami of Ohio (and probably North Dakota, too) when it comes to bending over in front of the Boston pain train. :)

Good point. You guys won't lose to Holy Cross. If you lose to Holy Cross, well, I guess you'd be called Minnesota. ;)

The teams in Hockey East call it Jack Parker bias.

Parker's BU linemate is the Hockey East head of officials and he gets every close or controversial call. We're use to it and know we have to outscore BU by 3 goals to win by 1 on the scoreboard.

It's a real shame you can't use such excuses against the Friars...

This was especially evident in the 2009 FF, when BU received three times as many penalties as Vermont and Miami. :rolleyes:

Vermont is in Canada. I don't thing they have east/west. Just north, and not-so-north.

That's a pretty nice lineup. 3 of the teams I hate/respect the most. :D

Anyone else having issues (again) with the PPV broadcast. After all the issues the other night, tried logging on again and not is says it is access not authorized. Hopefully it will fix itself as the games get closer, but this whole experience has been a joke .. poor audio and video quality, and #^%@#^% customer service.
