    Re: Wisconsin Recruiting Vol. IV - It's all coming together

    Losing a player like Sampo falls on the coaches and these coaches are getting paid a lot of money. These kind of mistakes canít happen and then have him going to the Gophers is a killer. If Tony is in charge of the program then it falls with him but itís most likely on the assistant coaches. We know Oz is in charge of the D and the fishing expeditions. So what does Strobel do? Not the D or Forwards, so I would assume the Academics fall with him. Looks very bad but Iím optimistic for the season.

    I put him on the sheet. Maybe I should call it the tentative sheet for now?

    I think you have him a year too early. He's 15 so the earliest is '21-'22 when he'll be 18.

    FWIW and I know it's been speculated on otherwise, but I can hardly imagine a scenario where Lindmark isn't a Badger next year. He's going to be a fairly high draft pick.


    Lastly I agree that commit news, now with 14-15 year olds, isn't as fun to follow as it used to be. Sure, a kid might be fantastic, but it's so far off and so much can happen that it's just not as exciting as when they were generally only a year away. Even one year away players aren't as fun as they used to be back when a commit was pretty iron clad. Now it just makes you nervous all year. I'm reminded that Turcotte was picked in the 2nd round of the OHL draft by Saginaw, for example... That's a pretty high spot for a guy that's "for sure" going NCAA.

    Updated. My math was poor on that one. You're right on the '21-'22.

    Re: Wisconsin Recruiting Vol. IV - It's all coming together

    from the Monsignor over at Buckyville....

    "I complained about this (Ranta situation) to a good friend of mine who is an Assistant Dean in L&S. She is not in admissions, but she is familiar with the standards. She was a little skeptical. She said that if the guy can speak English, the only way he could have failed the UW standard on the TOEFL was if he essentially could not read English at all. She speculates, without having any knowledge, that something else is involved here.

    She has worked with athletes to keep them eligible (even got some kudos from CPC on one of the football players she helped) so she knows what is going on. She also was not surprised that a student who could not get into UW immediately got admitted at Minnesota, especially a hockey player."

    My daughter had the opposite happen - admitted right away to Wisconsin (and also Michigan) but was wait listed at Minnesota. No sports involved...

    Not surprised there is a long waiting list for Tunneling Program @MN. UW and UM not so much.

    So in other words, the TOEFL issue is purely fake news that gave Sampo the narrative that he could justifiably go to MN in the public eye, when in fact it was a lie and Motzco simply pulled him from UW in the 11th hr, which if true is a total pile a steaming crap. All pure speculation, what other plausible reasons are there? TG needs to tell the tale.

    He never will. Not a chance.

    This is all part of the business now, and they'll keep these tales inside the family of coaches.

    I'd be interested on her thoughts on the timing...shouldn't all results/admissions criteria have been settled long ago, or does it really come down to the last week like this?

    If something else were involved, that could make a little bit more sense - although would the coaches really be so quick to let him transfer if it was something else? I'm generally of the mindset that the student athlete should be allowed to go where they want/transfers be less restrictive - but this would be an example of why maybe they shouldn't be 100% open if they are signing letters of intent and then going elsewhere without ever being on campus. Kids/young adults need to learn there are some consequences to decisions they make.

    Not to put a feather in my cap, but I've been saying here and Buckyville that there MUST be something else going on and I stand by it.

    The kid speaks almost perfect English, barely has an accent, and has been in Sioux City for 2 years.

    I'm not pointing fingers yet.

    So what other answer is there other than he changed his mind then and asked to be released?

    I really don't think there is any.

    At the end of the day, they're all very young people who are trying to make decisions about their future. They get advise from lots of different people and get pulled in various different directions. Who knows if an advisor said to him that he should look somewhere else? Things like that seem a good deal more common and, more often than not, the athlete just wants to play their sport so they can be swayed from one thing to another.
