    The bet isn't "against" Wisconsin, it's against Ohio State. It's Kentucky Derby weekend; you're installing yourself as 'the favorite' and giving me 'the field'? I'll take the field.

    OK, let's be clear: the bet is Ohio State wins the national championship in March of 2025; you get 'yes', and I get 'no'. Are there odds involved, or a straight up bet? Because if it's a straight up bet, name your price!

    Not for your team. You haven't had an undefeated regular season home series against us in SEVEN years and that's when the Muzzinator was still in the rebuilding phase.
    Any reason I shouldn't believe OUR home series sweep of the Banders won't continue? You always ask for proof, the stats clearly show our barn is the hardest place for any team to come here and earn a win against us.

    And the bet question remains unanswered. If you're so fricking confident, make the bet.

    It might have come down to already committed NLI scholarship money, and "you can keep one or two of the four COVID seniors, but not all": Gervais, O'Brien, Kotlowski, Wheeler. And much as I like Wheeler, Wheeler or O'Brien is not a tough decision.

    Or she's graduating, and decided to spend her last year experiencing something else. Maybe she just wanted one more year with her old linemate Makenna Webster. I don't know. But then I don't have the omnipresent "sources of information" that you guys have.

    Why aren't you telling us the details of her decision process?

    LOL
    Don't know why. The winters are better in Ohio.

    I don't make predictions like that. I understand all too well how hard winning championships is - conference and national. The last four national championship games have all been one goal games that could easily have gone the other way. Add in one goal OT games in the earlier rounds, and each of our teams might well have not even made the final a couple of those years.

    I have hopes every year. Predictions like HockeyBuckeye makes about winning the championship and going undefeated at home, etc? Nope. Not me.
    True. I would agree.

    Did Barnes ever get first team honors at BC???

    Winning the Natty next season? Why wouldn't I make that claim with us being the favorite going into next season? When you see our final roster announced you'll see why I'm confident.

All your paper talent and WI came up short to a team from Ohio (under .500 8 years ago). Culture wins over talent. OSU has the best locker room in the country. Thank you Jenn Gardner!!! The 2024-25 season will be a good one as I believe the Gophers will be back in the mix.

    Really? I think the delusional sticker looks better stuck to you. If they truly had such a better surrounding cast at BC then how come they had no Natty or other achievements?
    The supporting cast they needed and got was obviously at Ohio State and our Natty is the irrefutable proof!
    You probably don't know B & B said they would have come to Ohio State two years earlier if it could have happened.

    Would you like to bet on that?
