    Re: WCHA 2019-20 season: We Can Do Better Than Two Bids and a First Round Exit

    What are your biggest surprises so far this year?

    I'd have to say Alaska competing for home ice, Bowling Green struggling, Tech not being in the top 4 either. I was expecting Mankato, BGSU, NMU, and Tech, not Mankato, Bemidji, NMU, and UA (blank).

    We're recording the podcast tonight. If anyone has questions, we'll have Austin Monteith from the Bemidji Pioneer on as our guest this week.

    And it was only 4 games.

    often times in these situations, the arena comes first...but I do appreciate all the feedback. The feed is better than I have seen in years past and certainly not the worst in the WCHA, by any means but those graphics get a bit annoying especially during a replay review. When hunting for a moment from the 3rd period to record, I noted one stoppage where the graphic ran almost constantly for 3 or 4 minutes.
    Yeah, that was very annoying, and I hope they start realizing what it's like for a viewer. By the way, I do enjoy the podcast every week, even though the Chargers hardly give you anything to talk about.

    I want to add some context to a couple of things:

    Regarding the video stream: As I understand it, we've got the Havoc organization helping us with the video production. I've let our SID know about the feedback (such as the over-use of the videoboard graphics), and he'll have to pass that on to the Havoc. Early on in the season, they would use that ice-level camera every time UAH brought the puck into the offensive zone, which was awful, but they've stopped doing that, so hopefully they'll take the graphics feedback and improve. The center ice camera is typically better than it was during the Tech series. We were expecting it to be fixed on Saturday when the Havoc played, but it was not, so they need to fix it for this weekend. While it is far from perfect, if you've watched our streams before, it's still the best it's been since we joined the WCHA.

    I haven't heard anything about the new facility being quashed by the UA Board of Trustees. It hasn't even been a year since Dr. Altenkirch unveiled the proposal, and Dr. Dawson (the new president) said the whole development (remember that it's more than just an arena) told me last September that it will take years to come to fruition. I was told that they will be hiring a master developer to recruit companies who would locate in the development and that they will be eliciting private support for the project. I'll get an update during the offseason.

    Gonna be hard to top that quote.
    Little piece of Carny Magic that seems will never leave, I don’t use that one often.

    I jokingly made a comment to Tim that having you on after your win would be rubbing salt in my wounds. Thanks for taking it easy on me.
    Well, after 12 in 17-18 and 8 in 18-19, being where we are is just such a kick in the face.
