2 1/2 Hours from Madison. 3 Hours from Marquette. Let's get the season started.

3 1/2 hours from Chicago and home to a stupid football team that makes hotels charge triple what they were asking for last week, ha ha....

Seemed weird the last two weekends without NMU.... It'll be interesting to see how they come out on Friday night.... I'm expecting the Cats to take some time to get up to speed since Bucky already had a weekend up in Alaska... But then again, that weekend in Alaska may slow them down out of the gate as well....

Too early for predictions... Let's just drop the puck and go, eh :D

Nervous about this series. Normally the Cats play this one on opening weekend which allows them to steal a game or two from a just warming up Wisconsin.

I don't know how it's going to go with just two weeks of practice for the Cats, and with the Badgers being swept (including being shut out to open the season for the first time since the '30's).

The Badgers are going to be looking for wins while the Cats will be getting their game legs for the first time.

It might just be a hunch, but I have a feeling that the Wildcats will be looking for wins as well.

I have a feeling that could be an issue on Friday night as well... But then again, there also is the "Alaska Hangover" that the Badgers could be dealing with.... So who knows?

Looking forward to seeing the freshman for UW. Listening on the radio last weekend, the name that seemed to come up quite a bit (in a good way) was Ustaski, the kid seemed to be around the net a lot. Scored some tickets from the morning radio show on 107.5 in Green Bay (shameless plug for the station). Taking my 6 year old to his first Badger game.

My sentiments exactly. Regardless, looking forward to a fun weekend in Green Bay.

From what I gathered in the offseason, it was reasonable to expect Ustaski to contribute right away. I'm glad that he is.

Also dealing with a "2 quality defensemen have head injuries." I don't mean to be a pessimist - I do think the Badgers have a reasonable chance, and I do think there's a lot to look forward to with this group.

IT'S GAMEDAY!!!!

'Cats have been in town since yesterday afternoon, not sure when the Badgers arrive(d).

Looking forward to the NCAA debut of Rob Lehtinen tonight. He's got a lot to look forward to, and I can't wait for him to try and break John Kyle's record as the winningest coach by percentage at NMU. (For the record, the lone game John Kyle was acting head coach (http://www.uscho.com/box/mens-hockey/2006/12/15/exhib-vs-northern-michigan/))

I'm down in Appleton... have other obligations so I can't go. Otherwise I'd be there wishing both teams lost.

That was ugly. What happens when the Goofs and the Sioux come to town UW going to get their butts kicked.

Solid week for the Cats... Dhalstrom gets 1st star on the weekend for sure... He seemed to have a decent defense in front of him as well...

Now on to the Soo :o

That was a great outcome for the weekend!

A great start to the season to build upon.
