    Noticed on the UW site that Kronish is listed as a RS So, so she did take a RS and now all the goalies are graduating in different years.

    I want to make some sense of the potential forward lines, so let's look last year's lines:

    The first line returns: Watts - Pettet - SS
    The second line only has Curl left: XXX - XXX - Curl
    The third line is missing Norby: Schneider - Drake - XXX
    The fourth line returns: Greig - GS - Posick
    Extra forward: DeVito
    Newcomers: Webster, Wheeler, O'Brien

    Webster, Wheeler, O'Brien have to slot into the top 3 lines. MJ hardly ever uses the 4th line and with them playing UM UMD and OSU the first 12 games, I doubt they will see much ice.

    You could keep all the lines as is, and fill in:

    O'Brien and Webster with Curl (I like it!)
    Wheeler with Schneider and Drake. Will Schneider and Drake be able to unlock Wheeler's potential?

    I am SO excited to see the line combos MJ comes up with. Maybe he will blow it up.

    Game week!

    UW has only 7 returning forwards with significant game experience on the roster. Yikes. 3 returning F have little to no game experience. The 3 freshman F are highly regarded. I cannot recall a season start with this much uncertainty on the forward lines.

    On the D corps, there is a lot of experience at the top 5 spots with Kotlowski and Toft looking for the nod in the 6 hole.

    Goalie is also uncertain. Blair transfers in, Blesi and Kronish return and Gervais is also new as a Fr. One would think it's between Blair and Blesi since Blesi was the primary backup to Soup last year and Blair has 69 games of experience, though in an inferior league. Interestingly Blair was with the Sue 1 year and did not play at all.

    LOL and the vote for Wheeler got switched as well to Murphy.
    Wheeler got a vote? That was probably a vote for Webster that was mistakenly identified as Murphy due to a hanging chad.

    FWIW, here's my best understanding of Evers's orders and the court rulings on them.

    Under state law, the governor can make an emergency declaration, and by doing so authorize various other administrative officials to take certain actions. Here, the emergency declaration authorizes the health director to be able to direct bars to close, limit size of public gatherings etc. etc. Those orders can have a duration of no more than 60 days, after which they either expire, or can be extended, but extended only though action by the legislature.

    Evers made the first such declaration and the health officer took such actions in March - the exact dates aren't important, but we can look them up if necessary. Nobody questioned his authority to make the declaration or the health officer's authority to do that first round of restrictions.

    When the restrictions were set to expire in May, the state health officer issued an extension of the measures, with modifications, etc. People and restaurants and bar owners sued. The state Supreme Court ended up ruling that the second set of restrictions were invalid, but not because Evers didn't have the authority - they left that question open. Rather, they said that because Evers' declaration had expired and was not renewed, the health officer was exceeding her statutory authority. Would it have all been OK if Evers' had simply extended or renewed his emergency declaration? They didn't say.

    So then, when things starting getting bad again in September, Evers made another emergency declaration, triggering the authority for the health officer to make another round of restrictions, etc. My understanding of the lawsuits that followed argue that this is not a "new" emergency; it is just Evers is trying to extend the original declaration from March, and he can't do that. Evers argument is that we had a "wave" in March, it receded and then in September a second COVID wave started. Second wave means new emergency, and allows for a new declaration, all within his authority.

    (Think about a river that floods in the spring. Emergency declared. Then the river recedes. Two months later, the river floods again. Same emergency, or a new one?)

    So far, the circuit court said "no, same emergency". I have not looked at the appellate court ruling; I assume it also says "no, same emergency". The state Supreme Court has not yet ruled one way or the other.

    But in the meantime, the water level in the river is rising. Rapidly.

    The extension of the shutdown was shot down moths ago. What he is doin now is just asking us all to behave without any authority to actually make us behave. People just are not being sensitive to the plight of the medical systems here or anywhere. Some is intentional like the non maskers, others in unintentional as I have stated before with people not social distancing with the masks.

    Just saw this posted yesterday unfortunately. "Wisconsin... men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s hockey home games will be played this season without fans for an indefinite period of time." Safe to assume that includes family? And with MN Gov Walz's announcement of a 10-person maximum for indoor and outdoor events, I don't see how even family will be allowed to attend any games taking place at any of the MN schools. Bummer.
    The UW has to figure out a way to get the home games onto some sort of platform for our viewing pleasure. Naturally I am willing to drop some coin to do it. I see UW is selling the fan cardboard cutouts for the stands. I haven't taken a peek at the cost of it.

    Prior to the first (and so far, only) UW football game, they had been planning to allow family into Camp Randall for the game. But as things worsened in Wisconsin and Madison. even that was 'cancelled' a day or two before the game. And of course, things have only gotten worse in Wisconsin, in Madison and within UW athletics.

    If family can't get "inside" open-air Camp Randall, they're not getting into LaBahn.

    I just realized with this year really not counting towards eligibility, Watts could very well be back next year. I like that idea. In fact, next year UW only has 10F on the books (as far as we know anyway) for next season, so they could return all 5 senior F if they wanted too. On the D side, there are 6D, so they could return both and in goal there is no reason why Blair could not come back. Of course some of these ladies may just want to move on with life and get into the workforce if they have completed their degrees.
