I smell a conspiracy to try and make life has hard on UW as possible. At least they don't close with UM AGAIN.

    They really only have 1 bye week in early November, which is good. Once they are back from Christmas, no bye at all, 7 weeks to finish it out. As a fan I don't like bye weeks, but I'm sure the players don't feel the same way. This team is plenty deep enough to deal with any injuries that may pop up.
    your season would be so much easier if you didn't have to face 3/7ths of the league?

    Duh. Or UW could just transfer to Hockey East and play 100% cupcakes.

    It would be nice to have a soft finish for once. Of course UW did get that the last 2 years, what am I thinking?!

    With Clark and Pankowski returning to the lineup and young players with a year under their belts, it may be a soft schedule for UW from start to finish. There will be a few tough weekends but those will be few and far between. Maybe next season, the team can actually close the deal!

    I like your thoughts. Of course I am giddy about getting 2 players and and the great freshmen to fill some holes when our talented sr's departed. As far as sealing the deal....who knows. The goal in my head every year is make the FF and let the chips fall where they may.

    You're thinking that after being second best to the MN you "moved up" to be just second best.

    UW is raising ticket prices, single gamers go from 5 to 7, season tix go from 50 to 65. I'd rather see the season tix go up further and leave the single games were they are to continue to cater to families with young kids who want to try something new like hockey. In all, these changes are to generate another $24000 for the program, chump change to a AD like UW, flushed with money already.

    I thought the issue was cupcakes. 8 of Wisconsin's 20 conference wins were against WCHA teams ranked lower than any of the 9 Hockey East teams in the Pairwise.

    You guys feast on cupcakes.

    If we're talking cupcakes, How did the ultimate cupcake feaster, with all those video game like statistics, do when the the games that really matter happened?

    First, I do not want to live in a world where cupcakes are a bad thing.

    Second, as luck would have it, the teams with the fewest cupcakes on their schedule are the cupcakes themselves.

    Women's hockey lacks the depth for any of the top teams to avoid playing weak teams. The WCHA has enough strength at the top of the conference to at least guarantee that half of your conference games will be against teams that could beat you on a good day.

    Just like Wisconsin, BC choked away 2 of the last 3 when it "really mattered."

    I agree with you...Be careful about saying choked though as that can trigger some folks around here.

My guess for that weekend, without knowing the Men's hockey schedule would be Friday night, conflicting with VB against Nebraska, and then Sat night, with no current conflicts)

    http://uwbadgers.com/documents/2018/...dule_Color.pdf


    (And yet one more time, home Women hockey the same weekend of the B1G Football game AND likely home NCAA first round VB; Nov 30, Dec 1-2)
    Men's Hockey schedule announced.

    Both men and women have home series on these weekends:
    Oct 12,13,14 (women - Duluth)
    Oct 26,27,28 (women - Minnesota)
    Nov 30, Dec 1,2 (women - Syracuse)
    Feb 7,8,9 (women - Mankato)
    March 1,2,3 (women - 1st round WCHA playoffs, if "necessary".)

    And yes, one more year that Nov 30, Dec 1, 2 weekend is also first round NCAA volleyball tournament, when UW might well be hosting games at the Field House AND that Saturday night is the B1G football championship. That weekend will almost certainly be Sat afternoon, Sunday afternoon (unless there's a Friday afternoon, which Tim loves so much). Yet to be seen if they also try to shoehorn a basketball game in there somewhere (I wish I were joking, but I'm not) Why they over-schedule that particular weekend year after year is just beyond me.

    Some good news, neither of those Oct weekends has home football, so Sat afternoon is a possibility for women hockey.

    When men and women both play at home, do they usually conflict/overlap times ?

    Never. For parking and general traffic reasons. The only time I can ever remember a UW game at the Kohl Center overlapping with hockey at LaBahn is occasionally women's basketball. I guess that is "OK" because the combined attendance of the two is still less than a well-attended mens BB or hockey at the KC.

    When men's hockey is in town, it is a virtual certainty that they well be Fri night, Saturday night. Usually 7 PM; occasionally 8 PM for television, if there was a home football game, or home basketball (and they need the extra time to get the arena switched over from the BB set-up to the hockey set-up).

    Adding: when they are both home, it is often Saturday 2 PM women, 7 PM men, which can make for a nice "double-header".

    Hopefully I made it perfectly clear to Jason King that Friday afternoon games are not acceptable.....

    Love the double header opportunities. There's no funner Saturday in fall/winter than watching the gals play @ 2, walk down to State St for dinner then catch a guy's game @ 7.

    2nd most enjoyable fall event is musky fishing in the AM on Monona then taking the rig over to LaBahn for an afternoon game. Most annoying thing is if they are charging for parking off Regent, they want to charge me double for the vehicle and the boat when the lot is 90% empty! I can understand if it's full.....

    Lindenwood series moved to UW, I wonder what kind of event conflict in Lindewood would make their team give up 2 home games?
