Not saying my opinion either way on Hesketh, because I haven't made up my mind, but we don't have to use McDonagh's money on bringing in a player.

Many players are promised scholarships over a certain amount of years. It's fairly standard to get a 2 for 4, or a 3 for 4. Aka...you are on full scholarship for either 2 or 3 years and you pay for the rest.

So we could very easily move a kids scholarship money up a season and pay him now in order to bank a scholly later.

Forgive me if I misunderstood your post.

Didn't realize Eaves could do such a thing, now I do.

So Wisconsin maybe got a committment from Joe Faust? Who the hell knows. It's on Heisenburg but nothing from Baggot and I haven't been able to confirm. The Exiled One mentioned it but i'm not sure if he got it off Heisen or what. I have word into Faust, we'll see if I get anything.

EDIT: The Exiled One got it off Heisenberg.

Of all the MHS coming out this year, Hesketh might be one of the more ready if push came to shove. He wasn't flashy, but he was very steady and played smartly and I saw them play about a dozen times this year. Holl, Gardiner and Prochno all should be very good in time, but Holl needs to add muscle, Gardiner needs to learn to play against bigger players because he got away with his size advantage repeatedly and while Prochno didn't have the year I expected, he may have simply been overshadowed.

See if you can get somebody from the Des Moines Bucs to confirm it. I posted something on their twitter feed, but that's it. I'm going to bed now.

Spoke to Faust, "Yes I have committed (http://noalibisnoregrets.blogspot.com/2010/07/bloomington-d-man-faust-commits-to_07.html) to Wisconsin for this season and I am very excited to soon be a Badger."

Bingo, Bango, Bongo.

That doesn't seem so baseless this time around...

I also like how Baggot offhandedly mentions Schmaltz decommitted in an article about McD. Being a Verona native, and the WSJ being a Madison based paper, I figured Baggot would want to say a little bit more about that.

Not sure you realize how close I was to writing a letter absolutely trashing Baggot for the Schmaltz move. Un-real. The guy just flat out refuses to credit me for any news.

You've been DESTROYING him all summer on hockey news.

But he doesn't read blogs and message boards so he'd never know...

Well, I haven't updated the committed recruit section in a while. Since my last update at the end of May we've received commitments from Morgan Zulinick and Joe Faust. We've also had a de-commitment from Jordan Schmaltz. So check it out, with full season statistics for every committed player. I'm sure you guys will find a mistake or two, so post a comment and I'll fix it.

I also had not updated the potential recruit page since March. I spent over two hours tonight updating it and adding a number of players. This is by far our most extensive list and I'm very happy with where it is at. I've added a new feature to help people kind of gauge how good the prospects that we are recruiting are. Obviously it's not perfect but it will give you some sort of an idea.

Nice work Chuck, I noticed the name "Will Butcher" on the potential recruit list. (Just a little side note to help pass the summer). I got to play 1 varsity game my senior year while at Sun Prairie (didn't start skating until my junior year) and on my lone varsity goal, the assist came from Joe Butcher, yes Will's dad. Joe went on to win a couple DIII NC's with Stevens Point, while I went on to............did I mention Joe won a couple of NC's. :D

Will is arguably the best 1994 born defenseman in the country.

errr...1995

That's mighty impressive for a kid born in 1995! :D ;)

There are two things that matter to me when it comes to awesome potential recruits named Will <strike>Cutting</strike> Butcher.

1) Great defensemen look fantastic wearing the Cardinal and White.

2) This:

So this. If we also score a recruit named Dan Plainview, I'll lose my mind. And drink someone's milkshake.


Perfect!

No worries. And not to inject myself into an argument between you and Hammy, but somebody claiming to have knowledge of the situation seems to think that Zach Stepan considers himself more Minnesotan than (Wisconsinite?, Wisconsinian?) Cheesehead. He writes that Zach was raised on the western side of the St. Croix until age twelve, moved to Sconnie soley to play hockey, and now his parents OWN a home and reside in Faribault. Not that he's any less likely to play for the Badgers because of these facts, but if all of the above is true, Minnesotans can claim him as native.

Somebody should ask the kid if he likes Favre... that would clear things up! ;)
