      I am not sure I follow your lingo. But I am admittedly not the sharpest tool in the shed.

      • Do any of the Badger faithful know what's up with Ty Smilanic? I saw a few weeks ago that he took a "personal leave" from the team.

        While he never lived up to the hype at Quinnipiac, I thought he might do better in Wisconsin.

          I have no information for you. It's been radio silent. I would guess Todd M, the beat writer knows but can't share.

            • So discussion on Buckyville about football coaches and the excitement of bringing in the air raid offense and a guy that can get kids to the NFL. I posted that Granato has lots of kids in the NHL, but hasn't won squat. I think if football completely abandons what made them great over the last 30 years, my concern is they end not being able to compete in the Big10.

              That got me thinking about UW hockey. Let's compare the last 30 years which had the end of the Sauer era, the Eaves era and Granato era, with win % of that timeframe:

              Sauer (last 10 years 92-93 to 01-02): 175 - 162 - 29 .519
              Eaves (14 years 02-03 to 15-16): 267 - 225 - 66 .543
              Granato (6.5 years 16-17 to current): 99 - 115 - 16 .463

              Total for last 30 years: 541 - 502 - 111 .519

              That's ugly and unacceptable. Basically averages 1 game over .500 for the last 30 years. A complete reboot is needed. It might be needed in football too as things are changing, but UW hockey is way behind the historical average of the 29 years before that when UW restarted it's hockey program.

              Total for 29 years before (63-64 to 91-92): 686 - 366 - 47 .652

              We truly have a collapsed program like Michigan Tech, just happened about 30 years later.....

              That's what I got on Goofer week!

                I agree it's a complete collapse with TG for sure and needs a complete re-boot, but Tech plummeted deeper in a 8 to 10 team league. UW is 1980's Tech bad.

                Chatter in the newspaper about how embarrassed the lads were after last year's series getting shut out twice, I contend the whole season was an embarrassment.

                  Thanks for quoting my misspellings and killing of English language. Ouch. I should probably proof read better.

                      The Daily Cardinal is the only publication around that has the cojones to call a spade a spade. I think it's a student newspaper so their their livelihood doesn't depend on keeping the Athletic department happy with them. Poor Todd. I wonder if he would call out Granato and the department if he was a columnist...

                        They need to bring in Kelly Sheffield for a pep talk.

                          It's a good article for the most part. It's been 17 years since 2006 and that was 16 years since the 1990 title. So two titles in the last 33 years. Before that they had 4 in 17 years 1973 to 1989...

                            I can't change your words, it's un-American. We get the point. It's ok to flub up once and a while. I should know.

                              Yes! This is what I’ve been saying for years. 1994 was the last year of great Badger men’s hockey.

                              since then it’s been mediocrity. And that is completely unacceptable.

                              I expect McIntosh to retool the program or this season ticket holder (6 tickets center ice lower bowl) will tell the family enough is enough. Drop the tickets at season’s end

                              • Just heard on 97.3 in Milwaukee that women’s volleyball is outdrawing men’s hockey.

                                no offense to volleyball team but that’s a joke.
