    Historically there has been a lot griping about the title, Vol X or XIV or whatever, hence the hesitation, but I don't know if those folks are still poking around this forum or not anymore. At least MCR gave me old approval, so it's all his fault if people don't like it.

    UW needs the sweep against a supposedly inferior team. I'll check some stats at lunch, maybe I won't be quite so iffy on the matchup as I feel now.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    A few stats....UW averages a goal a game more than UM, shocking I know, 3.62/2.65 Goals against UW 3.31 UM 3.19....PP 22% UW, 20% UM.....PK 87% UW, 81% UM.

    I feel good about UW after reading Milewski's article, sounds like they ramped up the one on one and small area work, so hopefully UW wins more small battle and then win the games.

    Well...last weekend kind of sucked...

    Looking to this weekend, we get the "Ugly Helmets" from Ann Arbor
    Unranked
    RPI at 41
    PWR at 41
    Team O, 2.65 - 41st
    Team D, 3.19 - 43rd
    PP, 21/105 20.00% - 17th
    PK, 107/132 81.1% - 40th

    At first glance, both teams are poor at keeping the biscuit out of the basket...but Wisconsin has been scoring more goals. So that should lead to a good weekend for Bucky.

    The key barometer is again going to be scoring early and often. Wisconsin in 8-0-0 when leading after 1 and and 10-3-1 when leading after 2; Michigan is 0-7-0 when trailing after 1 and 1-8-0 when trailing after 2. This could get tricky though...the first period is Wisconsin's lowest goal total and Michigan's highest goal total, flip that around in the 2nd when Wisconsin scores most of their goals and Michigan scores their least.

    Wisconsin and Michigan have some interesting similarities:
    Neither has a #1 GK. Wisconsin has been splitting pretty equally between Berry and Jurusik, while Michigan has been rotating between Lavigne, Naglevoort, and LaFontaine.
    Both have underclassmen leading the team in points per game. Wisconsin has Frederic (Fr) with 1.30 and Kunin (So) with 1.16 and Michigan has Marody (So) at 0.90 and Slaker (Fr) at 0.73

    On paper, Wisconsin should have a pretty good shot at getting at least 4 points this weekend, but it would be fantastic to see them get all 6.

    First time poster, long time reader.

    Going to the game tomorrow and it looks like it's gonna be a big crowd on hand which is great to see after the lackluster series against Penn State. Big opportunity to get back on track this weekend!

    My name is MadCityRich and I approve that message. You can save me a spot on your Muskie Ship this summer for the endorsement.

    I feel very good about this weekend. Like I posted earlier, I don't think the players and coaches liked that taste in their mouths last week. I expect a nice turn-around.

    *I wish I could post some pictures. I found some I took at the Coliseum in 1984 (Badgers vs. 1984 Team USA), and some from a pre-season NHL game at the Coliseum in 1988, Blackhawks and Flames.

    Anybody see the report on Gopher Illustrated that the Big Ten will go after NoDak for hockey this summer? Apparently it's a paid subscription article so I don't have a link. It's also mentioned that if ND declines, they would go after Duluth or Omaha.

    Personally, I think bringing in ND is best case scenario for the big ten.

    Thoughts?

    I agree. After all, if they can bring in "the other" ND, why not the "real" ND? I'm all in for UMD which would make 9, then how about another MN school or UNO?

    I don't see IL, IN, NW, IA, Purdue, etc going with D-1 hockey, so why not go out of conference for more? I'm still an old fart in favor of the old WCHA, but it's not going to happen. How about a real 10 team Big Ten Hockey Conference?

    Love to see it, but I just don't think it would happen. If UND leaves, that could mean NCHC would be on the decline and lead to another college hockey shakeup which no one wants to see if it was anything like the last one.

    It actually might be good for college hockey - could allow for the reconstitution of the CCHA (Northern, Lake, Ferris, Western, Miami, Bowling Green, Huntsville, Fairbanks, Robert Morris?); and WCHA (Arizona St, Denver, CC, Omaha, Mankato, SCSU, Bemidji, Duluth, Tech, Anchorage) - that gets those Michigan/Ohio and Minnesota schools back together, and splits the Alaska travel burdens. I'm not sure I see it happening though. If you're North Dakota, do you want to do it for hockey only - considering you could be bounced in the future if other B1G schools add hockey? Or are you happy being a power and keeping Denver & Duluth as rivals in another conference?

    The Big Ten really only needs 1 more team at most anyway. After that, you're not playing an equal round robin. I'd argue that 7 teams, 6x4 = 24 conference, and 10 non-con is a perfect schedule anyway.

    solovsfett: Making college hockey great again!

    8th B6 team....I'm just not a UNO fan, but geographically it makes sense as it's in the B6 footprint, whereas the sue are not, but obviously the sue are an iconic program, so what's not to like? The old wcha people feel that connection, to them, but what about the old ccha teams? For the record, I am getting excited about nd joining next year.

    Awesome to see the lads close out UM like they did. I love when a games goes from nail-biter to frozen treat in the span of a few minutes. I actually had a small dish of ice cream when it was 3-2, I knew what was coming, I have the power supreme.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    It's so funny seeing that phrase applied to something that actually stopped being good for a while.

    My only complaint with the numbering system was the odd insistence on using the same set of numbers for the regular thread and the recruiting thread, which I just found to be pointless.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    When I got home last night, I was going to ask if the linesmen were as bad as I thought, but I figured I'd watch my DVR this morning and decide; yes they were. They were actually horrible. My brother even mentioned in a text this morning that Ian Perrin mentioned they or he was having a bad night. Regarding that waived goal....I know the ref blew the whistle, but he blew the call. It looks as though he assumed the puck was under LaFontaine, but it was in the net behind his left pad.

    I was really impressed with that late third period flurry that potted us 2 goals. In the past, I have a feeling we would've gone into the prevent defense that prevents you from winning. The Packers and Badger FB team should take note on how to put your boot to the throat and not let up. Let's get the sweep and hope for a big crowd. Everybody should be in a good mood with this awesome weather.

    Yeah, I get that part. I found it confusing when I created the new recruiting thread. If we want to ditch it going forwards, I'm all for it.

    Oh, and as far as adding teams to the conference. Getting Kennesaw State to move to D1 and join the Big Ten seems the most logical to me. Yep. I would buy season tickets in a heartbeat knowing I could see Bucky two times a year in Georgia.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    Solid character win for Wisconsin tonight.

    17-10-1 with 6 games to go, who would have thought they'd turn in a winning regular season after the last 2 years of ineptitude?

    Now the next 6? **** tough games. I'd be VERY happy with a 3-3 record against mn, psu, tosu over the next 6.

    Also...I hate to say it but I'm effing happy the rats swept psu, I don't like psu at all.
