    Says a lot for uconn, eh?


    I wouldn't call this a "Continued admission issue". I find it difficult to believe that the English language thing is the roadblock. Swedes learn English at an early age and, if you listen to NHL interviews, they barely have accents except for the very young ones who just came to the U.S. or Canada. How about maybe his grades aren't good enough or is that too PC?

    I'm probably missing a couple for football, but that's all I could think of at the moment.

    Garret Suter was an example for hockey, roughly 8-10 years ago.

    I'm sure there have been others since, but I can't think of too many.

    Taylar Cianfarano committed to the UW women's program for 14-15, but she could not get into UW, so she went to Quinnipiac. That's the only women's player I know of over the last 4 years since I have been following the program closely.

    I was pointed to this article from a few years ago. This identifies Nick Pryor and Troy Hesketh as academic casualties. Neither of which went on to set the world on fire.

    It seems like it happens, once in a while, but I wouldn't think that this is any kind of epidemic that is keeping us from being competitive or successful.

    You'd better find a whole bunch of sources to back that one up, because everything I saw was that Stone's supposed admission issues were just a bunch of nonsense. The only people saying Diamond Stone couldn't come to UW because of admissions issues were Badgers fans with their heads up their butts, unable to understand why Maryland was a much better fit for him. (There's some kind of midwest bias at play here...) The ACT score rumor was false, too.

    That's definitely not the kind of example that KaMiGo was asking for. He never committed to UW in the first place, anyway!

    Quite true.

    I'm not interested in the wild speculation of "we lost this recruiting because there was no way he/she would get admitted", I'm more interested in the "this person was lined up, committed, signed, maybe even in town and things fell apart because of academics" situations.

    I'm sure that anecdotally speaking that there are dozens and dozens of the first case, and that's fine. We may not be able to land some possible recruits because of their academics and I am OK with that, UW has higher standards and that isn't a bad thing.
    But by the time we are far enough into the process that an NLI is filed we should know well enough what a prospect's academics look like. If we get this far into the process before the warning light turns on I put that one on the coaches.

    At this point I'm going to pencil him in for 2020-21. Thanks for the heads up.

    Interesting pick up. Only 8 pts in 18 games, but already 6' tall. Also drafted to Everett.

    Subscribing to Badger247 and reading what Evan Flood had to say would say differently, but I don't want to get into it about him. I think we all read enough about him the last two years haha. We'll stick to hockey on here.

    That was quick...Oz was out west in October; Holloway was on a campus visit last week; committed yesterday. I love western Canadians. Always have, always will. Tough mother ****ers.

    Where has time gone? It seems like yesterday we were just looking at players with 1982 -1988 birth years now we're looking at 2000-2001 birth years.

    On a happy note, don't know if anyone saw this clip, but it's Alex Turcotte (who is projected to come in for '19-'20) making some incredibly slick moves on the way to a goal.

    Doesn't get much better. This explains why he's a future potential high round draft pick.

    I have a feeling that Wyatt Kalynuk will make a pledge to Wisconsin soon. Playing this season in Bloomington and was committed to Western Michigan.

    Wisconsin picks up big commitment in '02 Isaac Novak (Syracuse Nats). Good size, hard shot, heavy game. Top 10 F at USHL Fall Classic 14U.

    Looks like Coach Tony Granato is at BWC Academy checking in on a big time recruit named Massimo Rizzo. He's the biggest recruit out of the BC area. He is a 5'10" center (15 years old). He has played 2 games with Penticon this year.
