    Before that we should really hope there is college football & basketball or no one else will play

    3" is a lot!

    They don't call it the EZAC for nothing. UW was going to wipe Clarkson. Princeton and Cornell out en route to the title.

    I watched the last 3 OSU/UW games and from what I recall OSU's team D was more of a factor than Braendli's play. OSU was SO gassed at the end of the fill the bowl game. They were just hanging on by a thread. Thanks to Curl for sending us all home happy that day.

    If that height is correct, it would make Browning just three inches shorter than Andrea Braendli's 5' 6". Wisconsin only scored 1, 1, and 0 in its last three games versus Braendli, and Cornell's scoring defense was the best in the country. It might have been a case of "be careful what you wish for." As with all things of this tournament, we'll never know.

    Browning is 5-3??????? The puck could probably go over her shoulder in the typical goalie pose. The glove and blocker reach difference has to be inches. I sure wish UW had the chance to player her last year.

    Interestingly she is on the shorter side @ 5-6. Blesi and Rigsby are 5-7, ARD and Soup are 5-9. Kronish is 6-0, Gervais is 5-8.

    I know, absolutely no closure on the season; such an empty feeling.

    Let's learn about Kennedy Blair. I'm most interested in her non-conference stats as the CHA competition is, well, CHA competition. The last column is the number of saves in the game.

    10/04/19 at Colgate L 1-2 25
    10/05/19 at Colgate T 3-3 34
    10/11/19 Sacred W 5-3 14
    10/12/19 Sacred W 9-0 10
    10/25/19 vs UMD L 1-4 27
    10/26/19 vs UCONN W 3-1 30
    11/15/19 at CLARK L 1-4 33
    11/16/19 at CLARK L 1-2 35
    11/29/19 Union W 4-3 17
    12/13/19 St. Cloud W 4-1 18
    12/14/19 St. Cloud T 2-2 20
    1/04/20 at Cornell L 2-6 21

    Let's toss Sacred Heart, St. Cloud and Union.

    10/04/19 at Colgate L 1-2 25
    10/05/19 at Colgate T 3-3 34
    10/25/19 vs UMD L 1-4 27
    10/26/19 vs UCONN W 3-1 30
    11/15/19 at CLARK L 1-4 33
    11/16/19 at CLARK L 1-2 35
    1/04/20 at Cornell L 2-6 21

    That leaves us with a .903 save % and a 3.14 GAA against above average competition. Obviously those numbers are not stellar by any means, but we have to take into account the "Wisconsin Factor" when thinking how she will do playing for WI. That would be a great poll, wouldn't it? Taking a look into the Wisconsin factor on a goalie? It's been widely conjectured how would ARD, for instance, have looked on a team with less talent in front of her. Interesting.

    Anyway, I don't think it's a forgone conclusion that she'll be the starter based on the numbers above even with 3 years of experience. Blesi has 3 years of experience practicing against better players, but when Cece was on the team her and Blesi kinda bounced between the 2 and 3 spots. We really haven't seen enough out of Kronish to discount her other than she was the 4th goalie when Cece was on the team. I think it's going to be extremely interesting to see who starts in the first game.
