    It kind of sucks these men's games are on Peacock. At least you can watch the women play on btn plus if you want to.

    Via twitter, Jim Polzin says Madison.com has posted the bb job opening and Todd is handling that beat until it gets filled. No timetable to fill it, but it has to be a highly sought after job for any up and comer. So there is hope that hockey coverage MAY get back to normal at some point, though I am doubtful or why wouldn't the sports editor just told us that right away weeks ago. Unless they were trying to sneak this by hockey fans or maybe even UW, but they were called out on it. I'd bet the AD called them out.

    While Madison.com has left UW hockey for dead, JSOnline has a reporter covering the men's and women's team, Mark Stewart. I encourage everyone to follow him and like/retweet his work to show JSOnline we are indeed interested in his work. @MarkStewartMJS. He is also covering wrestling and women's bb as well.

    Oh my. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

    It's just really a sad state where the program is at. Hard to believe it has fallen to these depths....

    Me too, but I bet he's probably not allowed to tell us the truth. Email Madsion.com and CC King. That's all you can do.

    As far as this site goes, I could live without the men's forum, but I really enjoy the women's forum with all 17 regular posters having a lot of fun talking hockey and some smack from time to time. I abandoned the non hockey forum years ago. It's just full of intolerant know-it-alls who are not the least bit interested in an honest exchange of dialog and ideas. If you don't agree with people on a thread they just bully the crap out of you and insult you. It's pathetic.

    I understand where you are coming from, I really do. But I just won't believe that UW is trying to cut hockey. Madison.com / WSJ is doing what I assume is best financially for them and to assume they are colluding with UW to shuttle the program, is a bridge too far for me. I still believe there is support out there for UW hockey if they improve the team. No one likes following programs that are down. We're the minority, unfortunately, as things are now. I did copy Jason King on my email to madison.com / WSJ.

    i don’t believe they’re colluding and I’m not even sure that the UW AD is scuttling the program.

    however, their absolute inaction and lack of responses to season ticket holders tells me there is something REALLY wrong here. How in the hell could anyone in the AD accept stringer AP style articles just telling the score for a major sport? Even if the state journal/Madison.com says **** off we have no money and no-one cares about the team anymore anyway, they (badger men’s hockey) has virtually 0 social media presence. And that’s on the Athletic Department.

    check out the social media presence of Badger men’s hockey and there is nothing. Even on game nights it’s awful.

    Yea and no. I would be very disappointed but look at how many posters remain in just this thread. 6?

    the gopher fans all left for their own forum, etc.

    0. nada. I don’t know what else to call this but the intentional dismantling of the program.

    who runs an athletic department like this? If any one of us were AD, the second the local newspaper stops sending people to games we’d be in their office or on the phone. Look at what they deem coverage on social media. It’s 0.

    I’d be irate or sad but I’m kind of over it now and looking forward to telling King AND McIntosh “i’m not a hockey guy”, Jr. exactly why we’re not renewing all 6 tickets.

    The 3rd period was maddening. Down 1 goal, turn up the heat and pour it on. Press, right? Nope, let's just mail it in so we can get the bars boyz.

    The Stramel/Lucius/DSP line was good all weekend. They need to stay together. Smilanic looked quite good also.
    I was able to see the last five minutes Saturday and they take a stupid penalty.

    I’m so ready for this season to be done and hopefully move on.

    I can’t believe they are trying to shuttle the program.

    I didn’t see either game as I was up north. Sounds like Friday was good Saturday was ok but didn’t finish. Inconsistency is nothing new with this staff.

    EDIT: a poster on b5q mentioned a bunch of hockey sites are getting shut down…hmm
