    No need to wonder...They have been "out of Bidness" since the 2016/2017 season

      That drought isn't as long as the one UW had prior to 2019, though admittedly I don't recall them quite as far in the hole as the rodents seem to be now.

      I'm a little bummed the tOSUers are not more excited about getting Grant. It's not a **** Watts kind of pick-up but she will be a solid non-flashy defender in the UW style, unless Muzzy wants a different style of play out of her. Feel free to ruin her LOL.

        Funny you mention this as the wheels were turning regarding what subtitle to use for next season. I am leaning toward "I just want to be at the games" or "Can fans attend this season," but I will give it some more time and see if I can come up with something better. I am leaning toward "Road to State College ... if PA decides to allow fans to attend" or maybe just "Path to Pegula." We'll see. It was a tough ending to the season, but with the players we have coming in next season, we should be set for another run in the postseason. I don't think the transfers will be "taking any spots from family" as we were pretty thin this past season, so we could use the depth. Our roster this past season was a grand total of 20 kids ... 10 forwards, 6 Ds, and 4 goaltenders. We were really fortunate that we did not have any catastrophic injuries! I welcome the depth that the transfers will give us, especially considering we could be missing a couple kids to the Olympics. Tell you one thing, I will have a new appreciation for actually being able to attend the games next season. You never realize how big a part of your life something is until it is ripped away from you. Mrs 86 and I sorely missed the girls and the games this past season. Forget the wins and losses, we just want to be at the games to cheer our team on next season.

          I am thrilled to get Teags and I think she will fit in great here! We are highly familiar with her and were hoping to get her here a couple years ago as her older Sister, Breanne Grant, played her college hockey here for the Buckeyes! And yeah, I will admit, it is not everyday Ohio State gets a transfer from Wisconsin! My question is, and I am not sure about this because the rules seem to have been relaxed lately, will she be able to play next season or will she have to sit since she is transferring from one WCHA school to another WCHA school? Congrats on that National Title, there, Timothy A. I can't bring myself to root for Michigan in a bowl game, but I always root for the other WCHA Women's Hockey teams! I thought it was great that three of us were in the Frozen Four! Looking forward to our next trip to LaBahn for some women's hockey! You'll have to let us know when visiting fans can attend the games.

            Very interesting on Grant's sister, I had no idea. Is the transferring thing is from one B16 team to another or one wwcha team to another? Will she have to sit out like Kepler did? Great question.

            There better be full boat attendance allowed at all college sporting events in the fall.

              But they are taking spots (and money it sounds like) from freshmen who were recruited to be and likely sold on being part of the family.

                That may well be the new normal in collegiate sports. Remember the thread I started awhile back "Transfer Portal - Good or Evil?"
                It kind of comes back to that question.

                  Yeah, I will not be happy if fans are not allowed at games for a second season in a row.

                    That could very well be. Then again, we have had some departures lately, as well as only two or possibly three of our five seniors are coming back for their extra year. I haven't actually seen anything regarding Coach Muzerall's 2021 recruiting class (talking about incoming freshmen), so not sure who is having their spots taken. Guess it does beg the question regarding the transfer portal being good or evil.
