    I won’t be surprised by a lack of extension (and bet the coaches would understand that message), but I don’t think there is any chance of firing on Friday. The Athletic Board meeting is merely when they vote on contract extensions. It is a regularly scheduled meeting. They don’t make coach hiring and firing decisions in regularly scheduled meetings. Those would happen in a special session.

    I read the response in Milewski’s story to the news earlier this week as a head coach who was close to the guy leaving (likely not on his own accord) going out of his way to let the resigning coach save as much face as possible on his way out, that’s the kind of guy TG is. I have no doubt that Strobel leaving was a result of the evaluation that has already occurred. I cannot believe that UW would have let a head coach that they were about to fire go down to represent the team at the team meetings and coaches’ conference in Florida this week.
    Well put

    Its almost past time to do a wholesale coaching change though, I dont know. Dont see how they get the 1yr extensions this week.

    At this point I dont know who they wpuld be able to reel in w/o next yr being a total loss. TM mentioned the St. Norbert HC, for Strobs, and that almost seemed very specific. Almost like King is gonna dismiss TG.

    Lots of questions at this point.

    I didnt mean speculation from our perspective, just that how an athletic dept staff looks at it. If anything, the UW Ath Dept is crushingly methodical in how they evaluate coaches. Which is good, but sometimes, like in this case, when all the fans know something needs to be done and the cat is out of the bag, but yet they want to follow their process.

    Is this a sliver of hope?
    Osiecki is the lead recruiter. I agree he didn't just all of a sudden resign on his own.

    Neither of them have reached drinking age yet and neither of them are still with the program (one never showed up).

    Its not fair to be hard on Rowe (he played on an atrocious team for a coach that has defense as an afterthought, if he thinks of it at all), but…
    • According to the stats I see, you have to go all the way back to Jamey Gremore (try to think of what year that was) to find a goalie that had a worse GAA with at least as many minutes as Rowe had last year.
    Jamey Gremore reference. Awesome.

    Speculation? It's been officially official for 3 years!

    Please bring in a nonBadger with a ton of experience from a solid program.
    I am guessing there was a negotiation on that.

    ultimately I feel bad this hasn’t worked because all 3 of the coaches were great Badger players, they just didn’t get it done as coaches. Unfortunately, because of this malaise added to Eaves’s last 2 seasons, Wisconsin is out of the conversation for ncaa tourneys and championships and that hurts far more than recruiting.

    Immediate gratification takes too long?

    Thank God something has happened although it's not the resignation I was hoping for.
