    I pulled the plug after the first and went home. I still listened but sitting at the kohl center for that crap fest wasn’t something I was doing.

    Just 5 more games left and the nightmare should end.

    The most criticism Perrin will offer are his heavy sighs for every Badger bone head play. Sometimes he sounds like he's hyperventilating due to the near nonstop crappy play.

    Stramel deserved to be booted for a cheap shot to the head of a Spartan for no reason. St least they scored on the power play to go up 6-2.

    That first period was appalling. Never really threatened on the power play at all, and the puck was in our own zone for the vast majority of the 5x5 time.

    At least they haven't quit completely/are competing in the 2nd period. But, the defense looks terrible. Still hard to believe how much worse we are than every other team in the conference.

    The Badgers are down 3-0 after 1 despite spending 7+ minutes in the period on the power play. I guess they felt that the win last weekend was enough to carry them to the end of the season. This is not a well coached team, but I'm not sure there's a lot of talent here either. Passing is bad, and when a pass is made it doesn't stay on the stick. There is very little creativity on offense. Maybe they've given up, I don't know. This is one of the worst NCAA D1 teams I've ever seen. Listening to the radio while watching. Very little criticism of the play by Posick and Perrin.

    Well, I said I would not attend a game while TG was the coach, but my Daughter for her birthday wanted to see a men's game, so we are going tonight. It's actually a hockey palooza weekend as we are staying in Madison at a hotel and also attending the women's games, which we would do anyway, but with the hour drive to and from our home. It would be nice if they won for her.

    At this point, just get through the next 6 games and get the season over with.

Then Saturday, instead of going back to Moe he goes with McClellan. So Moe had no chance at redemption against his former team. To McClellan's credit, he looked good.

    It will be interesting to see what TG the goalie guru does with goaltending going forward. Moe has been the guy but Mac played really well the last game. I'd still run with Moe.

    So, not having BTN+, the Saturday game was one of the few I've been able to watch this year (this year seems to have had even fewer games on BTN than past years). I always cringe when we are assigned Clymer to call the games - which is pretty often since our games that are televised tend to be vs Sota. Clymer just doesn't seem very good to me, and doesn't seem to be as objective as the other guys they've had. Caponigri wasn't very good when he started with BTN; but, I really like him in the studio now, and others they've tried have started a bit clunky but really improved. I just don't see that much improvement over the years with Clymer, other than he's only slightly a homer now vs a complete homer when he started. He's definitely the weakest guy they have calling games - in pretty much any sport they televise (the wrestling and volleyball guys/gals are all pretty good).
    I can imagine as a badger fan having him call the game must be rough. The problem is he's done a lot of Gopher games on Bally's/FSN where the broadcast is directly for the Gophers as well as occasionally the Wild. He hasn't been able to separate between the two well enough in my opinion. Even if he was able to, he's not one of the stronger commentators we've had over the years either. I liked what they had done in years past grabbing one commentator from each team when you have rivalry weekends. I thought it gave good perspective on each team and you could actually learn something about the other team.
