  • Re: Wisconsin 2020 Off-season thread - Serenity Now!

    Andrenga was my favorite tv hockey analyst. Called it as straight as he could... but also called out the Badgers when they were playing crappy. Only 51 years old. So sad. Impossible for Badger Hockey to replace a man like that.

      Rob.....What a punch in the gut, a guy my age with kids the age of mine, this really hits home hard.

      Flood....wow that sucks. Hopefully your home owners insurance covers the financial end of things, but obviously there is so much more than that to this.

        I never saw him play, but he was a great analyst with Posick on the radio. I loved the two of them together.

        I will miss the guy. Between Rob and Joel (Red Shed Bartender / UW hockey fan / Motorsports nut) that is two guys I loved that have died from cancer in the last two weeks.

        Cancer sucks.

          Looks like at this point hockey is every possible this fall/winter. Will there be fans though?

            • Yeah what’s up with this? This is definitely harder to use on mobile.
              If you want to be a BADGER, just come along with me

              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.

                It's not shocking considering the blinders the whole AD has in regards to TG. It would have been nice for them to send a signal, and I think TG would have manned up and embraced the reality of the team's performance. Maybe they are/did have the discussion privately.

                    I'll have to try and figure that out. It's amazing to me how these IT / website people change something and make it worse...... Unbelievable....

                    Edit* I did figure out how to turn on my signature. Less threads on the page, the green arrow for threads I have responded in, is darn near impossible to see, no embeds of twitter. How are thinking this is an improvement?

                      I USUALLY don't mind change, but this isn't good. I'm trying to reset "ascending, descending" posts, it still opens on the original page and I have to enter page 21, and the mobile site is, well.....

                      Also, I'm trying to make changes, when I do, I get an alert that the email addresses must match. They do.

                        Yeah, this seems lame. I get a notification about a post and when I go to the notification page it says it's not available or something. I also don't know how to get the signature back, though that's not a real big deal I guess. The biggest issue is not being able to have the links to outside things like twitter posts and the spreadsheets, which are gold. Tech upgrades are usually not upgrades to users, just to the so called geniuses who make the upgrades. They don't understand the users. I'm still using Excel 2010 and Outlook 2003 at work, no need to change, everything works just fine.

                            I tried it with my old wall mounted crank phone, didn't work, so I tried my rotary dial phone but people keep interrupting cause it's a party line....

                            • I don't know about you guys, but I'm about to dump this site after almost 20 years. I try to make changes and it will not allow me. It still states "Email addresses must match". They ****ing DO! Navigating is awful. I used to hit the website and everything was set. Now, I have to make at least 3 adjustments to find the most recent posts. No idea what these guys were thinking.

                                For every change to the user preference setting, it puts in part of your email address in the form, which is why it then sends the "doesn't match" message because there's nothing in the second match field. You have to see the first auto added email and just delete it so that you can save the changew to your preferences. Don't ask why.
