    I'll let John McEnroe answer the question with a question just like you did...

    (Cheese and rice, the reality is, I shouldn't have to explain this to you. YOU ucking figure out why what you said is problematic...Or not.)

    I don't even really understand the premise:

    A player with "nobody to pass to" manages to put up X number of points. The next year, with talent all around her, she puts up a 25% increase in points. Is it because she "became a better player", or is it because she had "somebody to pass to"?

    Possibly, and possibly not.

    A prediction is little more than a hope expressed out loud. But your team last year won the national championship, and they couldn't manage it. And roughly half of that team is now gone. So expecting this year's team to be able to do it is rather unrealistic and silly.

    But if you're so sure about it, we could undertake a wager on the possibility.... LOL

    If you're a 94.5% favorite to win every game, and you play 18 games, you have about a 36% chance of winning all 18.

    I'm not going to look at the home games for every D1 women's team to be 100% certain but I'm assuming that was the best in the country unless someone shows otherwise.

    Let's say a team is a 95% favorite to win each game they play. And they're going to play 16 games.

    They are less than 50-50 to win all of those 16 games, actually about 44%.

    One of my favorite stats is that NFL kickers are 95% likely to make extra point kicks. But every week, some kicker somewhere misses an extra point, usually more than one kicker. Because 95% is not 100%. 95% is only 95%.

    Being achievable doesn't mean it's going to happen. Minnesota almost lost at home to last-place Bemidji St. during its perfect season. Hockey is an unpredictable game. You were the best team in 2023, but you didn't win.

    There is nothing more humbling to a team than running out of healthy goalies. If it could happen to the Mavericks a couple years ago, lightning could strike somewhere else. Some rosters are crazy-talented, but for whatever reason, they just don't gel. Or they do, but some other team winds up having a magical season and putting the pieces together even better. You might go undefeated at home and hoist the trophy again; or, you might not do either. Let's wait and see.

    Maybe, but I look at the stats and some other players had better stats elsewhere. It all comes down to whether you are annointed and put on power play 1. And I'm not a habitual watcher and more of a stat checker so I could be off on what some might say is a generalization. The counter is going to be that the two BC players were on pp 1 at BC so I would agree that there was more talent on PP 1 at OSU then at BC.

    They were established National Team players well before. They had a much better surrounding cast at OSU. That makes a BIG difference. You are delusional.

    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? Stats show our barn is the hardest place for any team to come here and earn a win against us.
