    Anyone want to screen print some shirts with the quote above in the front and something about 6>4 on the back?

      When you watch Badger hoops you see a group of players who have bought into a coach and his system. This is a direct 180 from the hockey program. Mike Eave has lost the locker room, the recruiting battles and now the fans. Come on Barry....get some stones and do your job. Please FIRE Coach Eaves!

          I have to admit the success of the BB team is making me more depressed about the hockey team. It used to be that BB was the ugly step-sister of the hockey team, now it's the other way around.

            I pull for BB too. Especially a once in a lifetime type event like tonight.

            But it now appears the 2006 win was my once in a lifetime event for UW Hockey, unfortunately. The beauty of that is the regional s were in Green Bay and NCAA was at the Bradley Center. I saw all the playoff games that year. That was a fun run, just like BB this year.

            What has happened since 2006 is depressing.

                Yeah, I'd love for there to be enough people who care for that to be even a tiny bit remotely plausible.

                    Every UW fan should always place the Sioux before any gopher team. No matter what sport period end of story, what the hell is wrong with you people this is a no brainer.

                        Since we had a smidge of roundball talk in here I thought I'd drop a quick .02

                        Quick thoughts on UW Basketball: The Wisconsin players and Coach Ryan really created something special the past 2 seasons (and to be honest every season since Bo was named HC has been special) and while tonight will sting for a while, the memories of 2 consecutive Final Fours will be something to savor for a long long time.

                        Coack K wins his 5th title and that's awesome. He's a great coach. But...he's nowhere near as great as Bo Ryan and here's why: Guys like Coach K, Roy Williams, Calipari, Pitino?... They have their pick annually of the top 100 players coast to coast while Bo Ryan wins with players that wouldn't start on Duke, NC, Kentucky, Louisville etc., and most of the UW players with the exception of Dekker wouldn't even be under consideration to be bench players for those teams.

                        *If* one day the Diamond Stone's or Kevin Looney's decide to go to Madison instead of heading out for the bling teams, lookout. Ryan will be winning titles like he did at Platteville and he'd be revered as the John Wooden of the Midwest.

                          Even with Jackson, Kaminsky, Gasser and Dukan graduating (and maybe Dekker bolting?) you've got to imagine that the we're still a lock for a tourney appearance next year to keep the streak alive. And I'll bet you could cube their win percentage and still outperform the hockey team.

                          And I think I'm done with bouncy ball talk for now. It's hard to watch a basketball game and not long for the days of WCHA hockey refs. Or maybe (more likely) I just don't understand basketball enough to get too invested in it.

                          At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

                            What I wouldn't give for a consistent hockey program and a coach who actually maximizes talent while also getting buy in on their system. I am not a huge basketball fan anymore, but I love Bo Ryan and what he has done even going back to UWP (won his last NC there when I was a freshman).

                            The Hockey program is now an after thought, and that won't change with Eaves at the helm.

                                It's impossible for Barry Alvarez to care less about hockey than he already does. I mean, "I'm not a hockey guy". Really? No ****.

                                And to prove my point about Alvarez caring solely about football (or maybe 90% football, 10% basketball), why isn't the AD moving toward getting a baseball team again? He doesn't want to divert resources (and attention) away from football, fact.

                                It's gotten to a point for me where Alvarez has soured me on UW football. I haven't been to a football game since he became AD and I don't intend to anytime soon, even if they went 11-0 for 3-4 consecutive seasons. He's presided over the diminishing of many of the sports/teams on campus. So I guess in his mind, retaining Eaves is a no-brainer (to bring it full circle back to hockey).
