  • Wisconsin Hockey XXXVII: Waiting for the axe to fall

    Originally posted by markwojo View Post
    A little bird (that would definitely be in the know/loop/have connections within Badger nation) told me that there's probably going to be a major shake up with Badger hockey. Not earth shattering or surprising in the least given we are on pace for a two year win total that would be a troubling total over a single season much less two and that fan support/season ticket base has cratered to a catastrophic level, but reassuring that changes are apparently imminent. I am assuming at this point of the season, Eaves will finish the season and whatever shakeup may occur will be upon completion of the season. By the way, this little bird happens to be in the circle of a person that if we sat around and speculated on potential coaching replacements, I would guess that that person would be in the two handful of names everyone would come up with. Sorry about being cryptic and I will gladly share more once the season ends and whatever transpires does.
    Just hoping this comes to be (and sooner rather than later.)

    BRING BACK PAT RICHTER!!!


    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."

    Canned music is a pathetic waste of your time.

          Anyone ever go to these hockey night radio programs at Great Dane in Hilldale?
          Might be interesting to see "dead man walking? " That woulda been my suggested thread title!

            No, I would be tempted to yell profanities and I have to much respect for Posick for that.

              I live near the Great Dane on the far east side...yes, I let it out that I'm a FAR East Sider. I was hoping someday for the hockey show to trek away from the near west side and cross the tracks. THEN I would go, but Mrs. MCR would have a gag tied around my mouth.

              Did somebody say, "waiting for the axe?"

                I've never seen the point of those shows, it's just a rah rah promo deal. Neither MJ or MM will say anything earth shattering interesting. Neither will tell us how they really feel about anything.

                  It is just an extra part of the coach's compensation package.

                    That and it gives us more fresh (or old and tired) metaphors about things like how we're pushing a cart up a hill to get the horse to slaughter so that we can use the rendered glue to make a cohesive team.

                            Not hockey related, but an interesting development from UW Athletics...

                            I got this e-mail just a few moments ago:
                            Dear Wisconsin Athletics Supporter,

                            Thank you for your feedback through the Camp Randall Renovation Survey! Wisconsin Athletics is excited to announce the next step towards a potential renovation to Camp Randall Stadium. We will be conducting focus group sessions. Your participation in these focus groups will provide us with vital information to assist us in providing the best experience possible for supporters and fans like you. As a valued constituent of the department, we are appreciative of your interest in this project.

                            Please note that this invitation is on a first-come, first-served basis. The athletic department will be providing meals and a complimentary gift for all participants as a token of our appreciation.

                            To have an opportunity to take part in the focus group session, please click on the following link:
                            RSVP HERE


                            I opened the e-mail on my phone, saw that you need to fill out a form, and went to fill out the form from my desktop at work. By the time I opened the e-mail on my desktop and clicked on the link the even was already full.

                            This is a follow-up to a survey I got a month or so ago asking about potential upgrades to Camp Randall, with more clubs/suites and some special spaces with outdoor seating.

                            Sounds like they are serious about making something happen at the Camp.

                              What like an actual championship or something?
