    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    Yes, I had it the whole season last year without too many issues. Got it the first month of this year, and the first game didn't have any audio. I complained and cancelled my subscription. Most services would have apologized, and offered me a free month, they just said, "Don't let the door hit ya...". I have been too busy since then to consider resubscribing.

    I haven't had too many issues with the stream itself the last several months, and yes, if you are coming to it late and don't want to know the outcome you do have to be a bit careful not to read the tweets and/or see the score on the screen, but I've managed it easily enough. There's been a few instances of late returns after periods or brief blackouts but not too bad overall.
    I have to say that I tried watching the Women this last weekend and the stream worked fine but the feed was nearly unwatchable as the camera operator insisted on trying to zoom tight on the puck carrier the entire time. It not only made it hard to see the play develop it gave you a headache and a dizzying sense of motion sickness. Although some of that could have been all the thinner I guess...

    I just think he sticks with the rotation the last two weekends and maybe picks a guy for the B1G. Agree that Berry looked great Friday, but again I can't really fault Matt on Saturday as he was very solid as well. Good goalie play is a must though this week as the pucks will be flying in from PSU.

    BTN+ is nothing but a money grab with horrible video. I have DirecTv, with BTN and get BTN2Go free on any device. I tried + and cancelled b/c it's a bull**** service that should be free. BTN+ should be part of that package, but no.

Wins and losses were a miniscule part of that.
    The diamond in the rough being one of the last teams into the tourney that year might have something to do with that.

    Are you guys ready to help me put extra axles on the bandwagon? With the BB team not able to drop a ball in Lake Mendota from a boat, this ***** is gonna fill up fast!

    That was 2012-13. In 13-14 we were a 1 seed and lost to NoDak.

    RE: TV coverage

    Saturday's game is on ASN. That's on 11.2 in GB, and I think has Madison distribution, too

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    I didn't take MCR's advice and watched the game anyway and it was pretty good. Just like all year, terrible in the first, GREAT in the second.

    Under the bubble at 12 PWR, with the goof's loss, tied for 1st in the B1G, and needing two points in 3 games to secure a bye in the B1G tourney. (OSU insured they can finish no better than 3rd in the B1G with their loss tonight. )

    Turns out this WAS a Great Day For Hockey!

    Woot! Great effort from the guys last night. Come out firing tonight and they can get psu on their heels.

    And btw, the announcers keep talking about how psu shoots from every angle blah blah blah...lame

    Directtv shows the game on the normal 57 or 57.1 on the channel guide.

    UWisco, Thanks very much for that information! Props to the Channel 57 staff for upgrading to 57.1. Usually ASN is only on 57.4, so they adjusted! Thanks, UWisco!

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey G2O - Making UW Hockey Great Again

    I don't believe we own the tiebreaker over MN. We have more losses overall than the goofs which is the tiebreaker right before record against next highest rated conference opponent, which is likely to end up PSU, which we also don't win. It's technically possible that could end up as OSU and UW could possibly win there, but that's a long shot plus the goofs would still need one more loss than us. In which case we wouldn't be tied, we'd be ahead.
