    A. Respect for the legacy of Badger Bob. The greatest coach Wisconsin (Badgers) have seen in any sport.
    B. Show the fans the AD cares about the team AND fans.
    C. Show recruits like Aidan Fink Wisconsin is doing EVERYTHING they can to be a top 5 team nationally again.

    In football Wisconsin loses to Illinois to fall to 3-2, still a winning record from a coach who was consistently winning 9 games a year and consistently in bowl games. And he was fired.

    That’s a precedent that should be a applied to hockey as well. Especially since the standards and expectations for excellence were set and maintained for 30+ years there
    These are truly legitimate points that give me some thought that it would be a good idea to make a move now. Previously I did not entertain such thoughts.

    I have not had any response yet from Mr. King or the newspapers yet.

    but McIntosh will go ahead and wait, fire the staff at season’s end , lose Fink, and then what? What’s the plan? Has anyone heard McIntosh has talked to anybody in a position to know hockey, how to find a good coach?

    EDIT: has McIntosh even attended a men’s hockey game? Inquiring 37 year season ticket holder wants to know.

    I got a response from Jason King on status of the program. I have not yet heard from State Journal / Madison.com.

    A perfect analogy. Perfect.

    Not gonna lie, I was worried they might have changed after the break. Still on course for Granato to be fired.

    Man…I’d write Jason King but… what would I say? Please resign tomorrow? I think the situation is beyond our ability to affect change. There’s only a few hundred people who care about Badger Men’s hockey anymore and that’s not enough to exert the pressure needed to bring changes. I honestly don’t think the AD cares whether hockey attendance ever increases back to where it should be.

    Agree. And we had ND fans right behind us. Not fun.

    They had zero effort in the first two periods and really it was ND taking penalties that got them in trouble in the third. All four goals on the PP. Tony readily admitted it on the radio after the game.

    Probably the most complete Defensive game the Badgers played all year thus far. Really did a good job with the foreccheck and clogging the shooting lanes and the slot. Moe made the saves he needed to.

    I'm frustrated with Ceulemans. Granted, they were due for a cheapo goal for once, but those aren't the ones to start chirping at the opposing team on. Unsportsmanlike, but I understand the game is intense.

    Wisconsin State Journal has jettisoned hockey coverage, and it's relatively apparent. Unversity sshould definitely make a phone call to the editors there. Esp since TM remains the editor for USCHO.

    Plugged in the "what if machine" and if WI would have simply split their sweeps against Ohio St, Goofers, and Michigan St....they'd be 13 in PW. Brutal, but that's the price you pay. My fear is that they'll go on a run and TG will save his job.
    And people think McIntosh gives a **** about hockey?

    it’s inexcusable for the main paper in town to not cover the hockey team. And more inexcusable for the AD to do nothing about it.

    Fire Jason King and Tony Granato tomorrow.

    If Oseicki can’t at least go .500 for the remainder of the season fire Oseicki and Brandt the morning after the final game.

    I guess the 2nd was better since they only gave up 1 when they flubbed a clear from in front of the net and ND scored.
