    Gut wrenching. Unfortunately I was not able to watch or listen today, but I am bummed. I said going into the weekend that anything other than winning the national championship would be a disappointment and I stand by that. I am very proud of what we accomplished this season but I feel for our seniors. On Wisconsin, we'll get em next year.

    I feel so badly that you couldn't check off the most important one on the list. And worse off it was a team from the East. Geez, what a drag.

    Nice of you to defecate in the team thread.

    Congrats to Wisconsin on their great season. May not be the ending they wanted but I stand by my comment that they are a great team. In a one and done game anything can happen and once again it did. This takes nothing away from my Knights. Once again they show they can play with and beat the best.

    Hmmmmmm.... when I read this before the game I thought to myself that CCT was going to win.... because I think many Wisconsin fans (and likely players) thought that this was correct - they seem to have spent way too much energy worrying about facing MN again instead of BC and CCT. In any case, congrats on a great season to UW despite not getting the last win - a great team and one with class.

    Aren't you doing the same thing that you're accusing of Wisconsin fans and players of doing -- not giving Clarkson enough credit? Maybe Clarkson won because they did precisely what they had to do, regardless of the mindset of Badgers fans and players.

    Somebody asks whether you'd rather play a team you beat twice this year, or a team you beat once, lost to once and tied twice, what's your answer gonna be?

    (And BTW; a parent-of-UW-player told me while waiting in line today that the girls said they'drather have been playing the Gophers.)

    Same answer Bill Belichick would give - "all the teams are good and we'll do our best to beat the one that we face". Seems to work for him....

    I can see that; they definitely would feel like they had some unfinished business with the Gophers. I'm sure that Minnesota's seniors were happy to get another crack at Clarkson -- right up until they lost to the Golden Knights again.

    BTW comment - and this just reinforces my perception that the UW players were focused on MN rather than CCT - the day after MN lost.....

    That doesn't say anything about the glasses you are wearing, does it? Why don't you interpret that as Wisconsin was more confident they could beat Minnesota than Clarkson? Do you think the only way the "eastern" team could have beaten the "western" team was if the "western" team was overconfident?

    The game was between the Wisconsin Badgers and The Clarkson Golden Knights. two very good teams. Congrats to Badgers and Clarkson on great seasons! Congrats to the Knights on 2 of the last 4!

    given your comments, today particularly, the sun rising in the East reinforces your perception. You seem to be incapable of understanding what people are writing in favor of being offended

    Re: Wisconsin Badgers 2016-2017

    One thing that I've always liked about the women's forum is that people tend to be pretty respectful when a team's fan base is hurting, particularly in that team's thread. It is pretty small to go into the thread of a team that just lost the biggest game of the year and try to pick a fight, no matter how right you think you are. The Clarkson fans that come in here show that respect. I wish some other fans would as well.

    Was that intended towards my earlier post? That wasn't meant to be a shot towards anyone, just listing off all the great things that had been accomplished leading up until today. As far as losing to an eastern team, it doesn't make it worse. Also wouldn't have meant any less had we beaten BC and Clarkson for the title.

    Clarkson, St. Lawrence, Minnesota, and you have a nice 4 yr scheduling arrangement on the men's side. I'd like to see the women do the same thing. It would be good for the sport.

    Re: Wisconsin Badgers 2016-2017

    Simply put, it was a miserable end to a great season. I had no doubt that Clarkson could play with Wisconsin and I'm sure the staff and players felt the same. Considering Clarkson took them to OT earlier in the year and just beat the team that had ended their season three years in a row, the concept of them overlooking Clarkson is comical.

    It's not even that Wisconsin didn't play well. I thought they played with a lot of energy and had a lot of good looks. Nurse probably puts that short-handed breakaway in the net 50% of the time. Just not today. Tiley needed to play a great game and she did just that. There were multiple scrums in front of the net that normally result in a goal. Just not today.

    One thing that was not good were the penalties taken. Hard to argue any of the calls. The penalty that wiped out the goal was probably the most ill-timed penalty I've ever seen. Obviously you never know how things would have played out from there, but I feel Wisconsin would have had all the momentum. I've seen multiple games where the Badgers battled like hell for that first goal and that just seemed to loosen everyone up. Just not today.

    I feel sick for the seniors. They came in when Minnesota had taken control of the WCHA and slowly, but surely, brought them back even and put up one of the best seasons in program history.

    (With the possible exception of the tripping call that led to Clarkson's first goal - I want to see it on replay; live I thought it was pretty weak...)
