    You have seen enough hockey to know there won't be much of a difference between the Emily of this year and Emily of past years. How many points this year would it take for that message to be clear?

    That is a nice, under the radar a bit, pickup for Cornell...

    Disregard the portal for a moment, just coaching the players Muzerall has been putting Frost to shame. If Zumwinkle blossoms for the Buckeyes, that should finally send a message clear enough to the Gophers to see if they can't get a coach that can compete.
    When watching Emily she just didn't seem to be the player Grace is but I would agree, under our coach and once adapted to her system would there be more potential to unlock?

    I'm thinking coach will move her to forward.
    While looking to see if she had ever played forward, even in high school - she didn't - among her high school teammates are Olivia Mobley and Sadie Lindsay; both also portal travelers this year.

    Her name is Zumwinkle.

    OK, I promised myself I wasn't going to do this anymore because this has turned into an utter cesspool that has nothing to do with talking about women's hockey, but here's what I can say: I've been around the program since literal day one when I walked across the street from my dorm to the Kohl Center a month into my freshman year of college to stand in the front row of what passed for a student section and watch us get boatraced by Duluth in the inaugural game. (Fun fact: I've seen Nadine Muzerall score a hat trick in person my sophomore year Thanksgiving weekend in Middleton.) I'm a lifer. I've missed less home Badger games than a lot of people have made.

    This staff doesn't gossip, they don't tell us things "they hear", they do their jobs quietly and professionally from the top down and do a spectacular job of it. (The "equipment guy" for most of that time was Sis Paulsen who might be literally the best in the business, which is why she's equipment manager for the US Women's National Team.) The idea that we'd be sitting around an athletic department event and people would be sliding info around sounds ludicrous to me. It may be the way it works at OSU, it ain't how it works here. (And if Fickell were to start doing that, he'd be persona non grata around the other coaches real fast.)

    I don't go hunting for inside info, and don't particularly care if you have it or not. Clearly the relationship between OSU fans and their program and UW fans and our program differs pretty wildly. I'm fine with the way we have it. They put an amazing team in front of me each year full of outstanding student-athletes, and I damage my vocal chords further doing the infinitesimal amount I can to help. I require nothing further from this transaction; I've been basically stealing from the athletic department for years based on how low ticket prices are compared to the product they provide.

    Anyone want to talk about the actual portal? Who are the best remaining players and where might they end up?
    I’ve been going to OSU games since the first game in 1999. Coach Muzerall, her staff and players do their jobs quietly, professionally and do a spectacular job just like Wisconsin staff does. We had a player diagnosed with cancer, Madison Bizal, during covid. Word did not leak out until this year when a story was published. Information doesn’t leak out at OSU.

    This thread and a few other threads are toxic because of a few individuals. Trolls and wink winks are ruining these threads. Stop it.

    You toxic folks are hurting your programs by trying to “look big” because you “know something” or trying to prove someone wrong.

    i have blocked many trolls so they won’t get my message but I doubt they will listen to it anyway. OSU wink winks are next to be blocked. You are hurting the program. STOP IT.

    Anyone want to talk positively and constructively about Women’s Ice Hockey?

On two occasions, I've bumped into players on teams I follow, and when asking them about teammates and injuries, etc. I purposely phrased the question so as to NOT put them in an awkward position: "If I ask you about Julia's ankle, you're going to tell me absolutely nothing?" (They laughed, and said resoundingly "Absolutely Nothing!") I don't get invited to "mixers" and wouldn't go if I were. What you are talking about is utterly foreign to me.

    I assumed some Wisconsin posters would be tight maybe not with MJ, but others connected to the program that would tell you things they hear. Even the equipment guy hears things. I could be at a mixer hosted by OSU's Trustees and they'd tell me for example what's on the table for the promised arena. Wisconsin's football coach spent many many years in Columbus and knows me well and Luke would tell me anything he hears Badger hockey.
    There's all kinds of sources for info so I thought you guys would have utilized some of them.
