    TG said they had hoped to use this game to get some confidence and a as a spring board to get the ball rolling. The players didn't play like that defensively allowing 4 breakaways. PP 0-5 and allowed a shorty. PK was 3-3. This was not going to be an easy game, but I was not expecting the lapse in D play (which has been good recently) and it would have have been great to see a PPG or 2.

    Max Johnson had 122 pts in 4 years at Bowling Green. He has the most points of any returning player on the team. Why is he not a fixture in the UW line-up in the top 2 lines and on the PP? He's only played in 10 games.

    So, this is something that I've been debating doing for a while, but I'm hanging it up here (for reasons I'll keep to myself.)

    Over the past few months, I've almost stopped participating on the site and have stopped using most social media (which is why the recruiting spreadsheet updates have been much slower as it's more of a manual effort now to find out when players are signing and what not.)

    I'll most likely continue working with the spreadsheet (with the slower updates,) because I enjoy the process, but it'll be up to the rest of you to post the links to it and such.

    If someone wants to copy all of the info and start working on it for themselves, I would be totally fine with that also.

    Thanks again to all of you for your help and support throughout the years.

    It's been an interesting 18 years here and perhaps well talk again at some time.
    This is more gutting than any loss the team would have all season. Take care and God Bless.

    4-0 loss to U-18. I know they're an all star squad, but to get whipped like that is beyond pathetic. This team is lost. This thing must be close to coming apart at the seams. If a player or two leaves that will be all she wrote. I know Tony isn't a quitter, but at some point he's a Badger first and a coach second. The good of the program must come first. We have reached or surpassed the nadir that marked the end of the Eaves era.

    gwhinwi, I hope you are alright and thanks much for all your efforts over the years. I think slower updates is totally fine and hope you find your way back more often in the future. Good luck!

    I think no better than last weekend. So 3,500 to 4,000 would be the high end. I could see 3,000 or under. I think the USNTDP would be a fun game to watch. You get to see alot of the future college stars.

    Tim do you have auto correct What's to Watts for Ms. Daryl?
    Agreed. I’m inclined to say 2,500 to 2,700 actual attendance.

    the future stars will be the ones who don’t end up in Madison sadly.


    lindmark, turcotte, miller and more have been or were stymied or didn’t grow due to an ineffective coaching staff.

    Knowing how passionate Tony Granato was as a player and how much he loves the U this must be eating away at him.

    if he recalls the crowds and how vociferous they were during his playing days compared to now. Man…

    Sadly no, with the current coaches.

    Watts the attendance tonight? Under 4000?

    3500 in attendance Friday and 3600 Saturday. Tickets sold for those games were 7930 and 8919. Friday 56% of the people who bought tickets ate them. Saturday it was 60%. That is completely flat out insane.
    I was there both nights. Honestly, those that ate the tickets didn't miss much. Two of the most boring games I have ever seen there. Part of that was no students / band, but it just is not good hockey right now.

    I fully understand wanting to honor Badger Bob on the anniversary of his passing. But the big picture is that UW knows the Thanksgiving weekend games are poorly attended, so why not do it a few weeks later when you know more seats will have people in them to honor the Godfather of WI hockey? And on top of that, no band at all, not even an alumni band? The Johnsons had a lower whole suite area filled with family and friends to honor Bob, and this is Watts they get? It was practically an insult. I felt really bad for them.

    Those special teams stats are indefensible. Seriously, I think we could randomly grab one of the parents/coaches from the pee-wee teams skating between periods and have them replace Strobel/Oz and potentially do better.
